CUBY + BLIZZARDS – Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s

2LP CUBY + BLIZZARDS – Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s

De geschiedenisboeken schrijven het, Cuby + Blizzards is de grootste bluesband die Nederland ooit heeft voortgebracht. Dat is zeker waar, maar om hen te omschrijven als een ‘bluesband’ daarmee doe je ze zeker te kort. Cuby + Blizzards beste nummers gaan dwars tegen de stijve beperkingen van de blues in en ze geven er een expressieve, persoonlijke stijl aan, onder andere door de tegengestelde polen van zanger Harry Muskee, gitarist Eelco Gelling en bassist Willy Middel. C+B heeft door de jaren heen veel bezettingswisselingen gekend, met veel getalenteerde muzikanten waaronder Dick Beekman (Ro-d-ys), Hans Waterman (later Solution) en markant rock legende Herman Brood.

Veel van Cuby + Blizzards meest memorabele werk is uitgebracht op hun singles. Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s verzamelaar met hun 45 toeren singles bundelt de authentieke originele mono mixen van al die 1965-69 releases op een prachtige twee LP verzamelaar. Dynamisch ge-remastered, rechtstreeks van de oorspronkelijke mastertapes. Vanaf het debuut uit 1965 Stumble and Fall tot de bluesrock van Appleknockers Flophouse uit 1969, de set is geladen met ongeëvenaarde favorieten, inclusief Your Body Not Your Soul, Back Home (A Man), Just For Fun, Another Day, Another Road, Window Of My Eyes, Somebody Will Know Someday en Distant Smile. De twee 180 grams grammofoonplaten zijn verpakt in een deluxe klaphoes inclusief afbeeldingen van alle oorspronkelijke single hoezen, een inlegvel met zeldzame foto’s en liner notes door Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine) waarvoor nieuwe interviews met Hans Waterman en Jaap van Eik (Trace) van de Blizzards zijn afgenomen.

CUBY + BLIZZARDS – Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s

2LP CUBY + BLIZZARDS – Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s

As the history books tell it, Cuby + Blizzards were the greatest blues band to ever come out of the Netherlands. That may well be true, but to pigeonhole them simply as a “blues band” is to sell them short. Cuby + Blizzards’ best records twisted and pulled against the rigid restraints of the blues to create an expressive, personal style that was as unique and idiosyncratic as the personalities that made up the band. The group was based around the opposing magnetic poles of singer Harry Muskee, lead guitarist Eelco Gelling and bassist Willy Middel, and over the years featured the talents of an array of musicians including Dick Beekman (Ro-d-ys), Hans Waterman (later of Solution) and the mercurial Herman Brood.

Much of C+B’s most memorable work was to be found on their singles. Window Of My Eyes: Their Sixties 45s gathers together the original mono mixes of all of those 1965-69 45 releases on a magnificent two-LP collection dynamically remastered from the original master tapes. From their tough, edgy 1965 debut Stumble and Fall to 1969’s urgent bluesy rocker Appleknockers Flophouse, the set is loaded with peerless favourites, including Your Body Not Your Soul, Back Home (A Man), Just For Fun, Another Day, Another Road, Window Of My Eyes, Somebody Will Know Someday and Distant Smile. The two 180gm discs are packaged in a deluxe gatefold cover including shots of all the original picture sleeves, an insert with rare photo’s and full liner notes by Mike Stax (Ugly Things magazine), including new interviews with Hans Waterman and Jaap van Eik (later of Trace) of the Blizzards.
