Welcome on my homepage!





Like all hobbies, mine (collecting bootlegs, most of all blues and related music and the 60's), also had a start.

Look below how it all started (however, listening to the piratestations like Radio Veronica and Radio Caroline, while making my homework, also had a big influence!).

At the bottom of this page you can click on the various characters to see my tradelist!

About 1969 two singles have been released on the

Although Poisoned Soul was a bit bluesy, the next one Holy Cloud

was a lot better with driving guitars and pre-Focus Thijs van Leer on flute!
