    Default School me on Dutch Prog

    Earth and Fire, Supersister, Brainbox are mostly dead cheap and good prog fun. What else do I need?

    Alquin.
    Never got in to Focus though. I suppose I have to draw a line somewhere.

    Apart from some of the Hans Dulfer albums which to be fair are more jazz than prog this has always been my fave

    Oh I always forget these are Dutch they get more Prog as they go on but I find this a good balance of Psyche and Prog. :

    Group 1850 is better than I anticipated. Thanks for the tip.

    Ant what are Boudewijns other albums like? And do I need the 45 that comes with this album or should I just pretend it doesnt exist?

    As far as i know (please someone correct me if i'm wrong) none of his other albums are Prog. Came out of the 60's, more of a serious Dutch pop artist. The 45 really is surplus to requirements

    Lady Lake -No Pictures
    Pythagoras
    Thomas Flinter (first album)
    Lethe
    Mirror -Daybreak
    Coda -Sounds Of Passion
    Kayak (up until 1978 or so)
    Flyte -Dawn Dancer (Dutch-Belgian hybrid)
    Vance -An Epitaph For Mary
    Finch (all 3 are excellent)

    Not really Prog, closer to Psych imo, but not to be missed is The Use Of Ashes, especially their first album, The Castle Of Fair Welcome, made when they were still going by the name Mekanik Kommando. TCoFW is a Psychedelic Folk album, though. They mostly lost the Folk element afterwards.

    There are a few later bands only on CD that are worth owning also.

    thanks for all the recommendations. I am not brave enough to venture into the late 70s side of prog quite yet but your recommendations will keep me busy. (if I can afford them..sheesh...)

    Hurdy Gurdy were Danish....I used to chat to the drummer Jens when we had stalls at Camden. Claus the guitarist, last I heard, lives in Cornwall and used to play out in the area.

    I second Cosmic Dealer, Group 1850 - Paradise Now and the first Alquin album. That Alquin album can be picked up very cheap.

    The Boudewijn De Groot - Picknick is pretty psychedelic (Cinderellaaaaaaaaaaaa)

    There's also Cargo. Don't know if that's prog though, it's more some guitar noodling.

    Is there actually a Kayak album I should listen to? I had one, but thought it was crap

    One of my favourite Dutch prog LPs is Mirror's "Daybreak". It's rare and expensive as an original, but there is a CD.
