Post a Comment. Monday, October 21, Blues Dimension - B. Is Dead, Long Live B. One of the most underrated Nederpop bands from the 60s was the Zwolle band Blues Dimension. A unique band because they were one of the first to join a brass section.
In the three years of existing, members changed. The album opens with the beat ballad Stay with flowing organ and Drum & Bass - Cody Oliver - Solo Acoustic / Electronic playing by van der Vegt. What is particularly striking in this song is how underrated guitarist Cees de Best is.
His beautiful game is very reminiscent of Eelco Gelling's. Singer Leen Ripke also appears to be an excellent bluesy singer. The role of the blazers is meager because they are added at the end of the song. The wind instruments can hardly be heard on this album. Long Live B.D. Of Love was the last single from the band and did not get much of sales, even so this ballad can still be counted as one of the pearls of the Nederpop.
Supernatural Powers is an up-tempo funky blues rocker with excellent bass from Deinum and bluesy piano. Here again the Muskee-like vocals of Ripke stand out. Society's Child is also a cover by Janis Ian, a psychedelic funky song. This jazzy song focuses on saxophonist Rudy van Dijk.
In the blues rocker Cornflakes, the driving bass Shapes Of Things - Blues Dimension - B.D. Is Dead Vaninum and guitarist Cees de Best steal the lead roles.
