I bought this album on the strength of 'Postcard' and their international hit 'Venus'. The price of the CD was worth it for these two songs alone.
I fell in love with the songs on the first listen. All of the songs, appart from some of the later 70's tracks, are amazing. The tunes stayed in my head for days.
The vocals are superb as well as the bands unique playing style. Anybody with the remotest interest in 60's music ought to own this album!

A very good late sixties early seventies sound from our Dutch friends Shocking Blue. As always being the original it's certainly the best version of 'Venus' and one to get those pants shaking at any party. Also some other gems on here like 'Send Me A Postcard' and 'Mighty Joe'.

I don't know how good their albums were, but this collection of Shocking Blue's singles is pretty formidable stuff. All but the last few tracks are catchy, direct examples of good pop, driven home harder by Mariska Veres' fierce voice and Robbie van Leeuwen's crackling guitar lines. The first track sounds out of place as it was made before Veres joined the band, but each of the next twelve tracks are instant winners. Only the last two Veres solo efforts from the late 1970s let the side down. These lack the rock influence and pander to commercial country and disco tastes of their era. Otherwise, it's gorgeous fare.

Always loved this group ever since my late teenage days when i listened to Radio Veronica on 675 medium wave..
Venus, Mighty Joe, Never marry a railroad man, which is my favourite, and Hello Darkness etc.A great group with a powerful voiced female lead singer, not this crap you hear today. Buy it, you will not be disappointed, if you are, then you don't know music.

Just an incredible compilation of rock / pop songs that really grab you. It's a group that I'd never heard of until recently, although they apparently sold truck-loads in Europe. In truth, I wasn't even born until around the end of their career, so it's perhaps not surprising, but it goes to show that they don't have the same profile in Britain as other groups from that era. Of course, everyone knows the song 'Venus', but I wonder how many people know the original.

I don't think I will ever tire of listening to this CD. The band are excellent musicians and Mariska Veres has a haunting voice that is all the more endearing for its Dutch pronunciation.
