Like New Zealand in the 80s, Holland in the 60s presented an enormous hunk of great rock 'n' roll that belied the country's relatively small size. The Q65 and the Outsiders get the most hipster ink, as is appropriate, but there were tonsa great bands, check the above CDs for documentation. The Sandy Coast issued a handful of great beat singles before getting decidedly heavier in the later part of the 60s, as was the pattern for most. Guess which we prefer?
