Blues Dimension - Blues Dimension (1968-69 dutch, great psychedelic blues jazz rock)

One of the better rhythm'n'blues groups from Eastern Netherlands. Founded in 1967 in Zwolle by Leen Ripke (v, ex-Mozarts) and Rudy van Dijk (s, ex-Jazz Prophets, later in Erwin Somer Group, Flash & Dance Band and Farrago) and named after the American group the Fifth Dimension. In the beginning, it consisted of the above plus Jaap de Gronde, Karel v.d. Velde, Dirk-Jan v.d. Boogaard (tr, soon replaced by Chiel Scholder) and Jaap van Eyck (b, ex-Moans, to Sound Magics).

By the time they began recording, the line-up had changed to: Leen, Rudy, Helmig v.d. Vegt (o, p, ex-Vara Dansorkest, to Cuby & Blizzards), Herman Deinum (b, ex-Special Set and Mozarts, also to Cuby), Cees de Best (g), Michel Sardoen (tr) and Hans Lafaille (dr, ex-Jailhouse Jazzband, to Cuby; in 1969 replaced by Herman van Boeijen, ex-George Cash, to Fullhouse). In 1969, the group's breakup was announced in the title of their last LP; on this record, Jaap van Eyck can be heard once again.
