5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking me 22 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop and rock collide in harmony 19 Nov 2005
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Good 19 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
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'.
