Shocking Blue was a Dutch rock band from The Hague that was at their peak in the ï60s and ï70s and gained major cross-Atlantic success. The band was founded in 1967 and gained lots of popularity shortly after recruiting vocalist Mariska Veres. With their single "Venus" they became the first Dutch band ever to reach #1 on the American Billboard Hot 100. The band had a series of subsequent hits but disbanded in 1975. Their influence reached well beyond their generation: their tracks have been sampled by The Prodigy, covered by Nirvana and Bananarama amongst others, their compositions were heavily featured in numerous films, commercials, and TV shows, including the recent series The Queens Gambit.

In addition, this 10 compilation features four bonus tracks that were previously available as B-sides on various long out-of-print 45s.
