OUT NOW: 2LP BRAINBOX – Dark Rose / Their 45s  on 180 gram audiophile pressing


Brainbox was something special. The band not only featured some of the Netherlands’ most preternaturally talented musicians, but in less than three years they produced a recorded legacy that was truly world class. Much of their best work appeared on their 1969-71 singles, which have been compiled on this definitive 2-LP collection, pressed on 180gm vinyl and dynamically re-mastered from the original tapes.


The original lineup with lead-guitarist Jan Akkerman, bassist André Reijnen, drummer Pierre van der Linden and vocalist extraordinaire Kaz Lux deliver the goods on pile-driving blues rock songs like Down Man and Dark Rose, and the hard-hitting Hendrix-inspired rocker Amsterdam, The First Days—all presented in their original mono mixes. After Akkerman’s departure, Brainbox expanded its musical palette with guitarists Rudy de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and John Schuursma (ex-Rob Hoeke’s R&B Group), recording memorable tracks like Between Alpha And Omega, Doomsday Train, Mobilae and the blisteringly powerful Virgin. Dark Rose / Their 45s also includes previously unreleased demo-versions of Virgin, Dark Rose and the epic Sea Of Delight. It comes packaged in a magnificent gatefold-cover with rare photos and liner-notes including exclusive interview material.
