Description

Drama - Melodrama LP. Drama has always been one of the most captivating of the Dutch one-album-bands in the early seventies. The band, featuring band members Polle Eduard (vocals, guitars), Ulli Grün (keyboards), Shell Shellekens (drums) and Frank van der Kloot (guitars, vocals), was founded from what was left of After Tea in 1971. Their album 'Drama' was recorded in the GTB Studios in The Hague with Hans van Oosterhout, who worked with Supersister and -after Drama- with the newly founded Alquin. The eight songs on the album show the wide musical interest of the band-members, culminating in a mixture of blues, post-psychedelica and dreamy west-coast orientated songs. In 1973, just a mere 18 months after their formation, Phonogram did not continue the contract and soon Drama split up. The band never reunited, but their album got some attention in 1997 when it was issued on CD by Pseudonym Records. Now, sixteen years later, the material of that s/t album forms the bulk of 'Melodrama'. This is a high quality pressing on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, featuring five tracks from the original 1972-album, which are augmented by five previously unreleased recordings. Among them is a longer version of the Frank van der Kloot-penned 'No Doctor'. This LP comes housed in a deluxe fold out cover, full of rare memorabilia and exclusive liner notes featuring interviews with former band members. The recordings have been exclusively remastered from the original master-tapes. Music Style: Progressive Rock, Blues, Post-psychedelia, West Coast. (sealed)

News!

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.
