Re: sandy coast subject of my thoughts (9 CD)

Thanks for the prompt Paul. I have the Golden Earrings and Shocking Blue sets in this ongoing Dutch multi-disc series. I skipped the Focus set and Sandy Coast may do the same. Everything up to and including the Stonewall album I very much like. The rarities disc will probably be good too. They were great at Nederbeat jingle jangle and later prog psych. I really don't like Terreno or the Hans Vermuelen albums though, not heard the other side projects so should probably check them. These are good value sets if you want the whole career of a Dutch band in a box in great sound quality.
