Shocking Blue was a Dutch rockband from
The Hague that was at their peak in the sixties and seventies and gained
major cross-Atlantic success. The band was founded in 1967 and after
recruiting vocalist Mariska Veres, they soon became huge. With their
single “Venus” they became the first Dutch band ever to reach the first
spot on the American Billboard Hot 100. The band had a series of
subsequent hits but decided to call it a day in 1975. Their influence
reached well beyond their generation: even bands like Nirvana and The
Prodigy used Shocking Blue's 'Love Buzz'.
3rd Album is, strangely enough, not their third full-length
album but their fourth. It was originally released in 1971. This reissue
comes with six bonus tracks consisting of singles and b-sides.
