“Made in Great Britain in 1966, the flat-out great Blow-Up (in the U.K., Blow-Up) was Michaelangelo Antionioni’s  first English-language effort. “Inspired” by Argentinean writer Julio Cortázar’s 1959 short story Las babas del diablo (literally, “The Devil’s Drool”), Blow-Up was nominated for two Academy Awards – in addition to winning the Palme d’Or. (…). Blow-Up, for its part, is not only a great work of art but a great work of philosophy as well, one as impressive as Antonioni’s Italian masterpiece, La Notte (1961). Also of interest, Blow-Up caused a bit of a stir upon its release for its depiction of female nudity, casual sex, and drug use. Of course, forty years later this all seems a bit silly, considering how tame the scenes look to the modern viewer”.  (Quoted from: http://www.altfg.com/film/blowup-michelangelo-antonioni/)

“Everyone who has seen “Blow-Up” will know that it’s The Yardbirds, in a recording made with the rare Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page line-up, who provide the film with its exciting live rock group action cameo, and they are seen, and here heard, blazing through an interpretation of the old Tiny Bradshaw via Johnny Burnette Rock ‘N’ Roll Trio chestnut ‘Train Kept-A-Rollin’ – here redesigned as the sharper-titled ‘Stroll On’ – yet that’s only a smidgeon of what’s on offer.

This recently-issued reassessment of the soundtrack via the Music on Vinyl outlet presents everything in a vibrant, altogether more alive way for the up to date listener to get their head into. A few of the instrumental pieces – almost all created by the great Herbie Hancock number among the set’s most colourful creations, including the highly effective ‘Bring Down The Birds’.

Most people who are even just a little bit bothered about those types of fascinating behind-the-scenes insights will know nowadays – well at least since the initial vinyl reissue way back in the late 80s / early 90s – that one of director Michelangelo Antonioni’s first choice London groups for the onstage club guitar smasherama scenario was to have been the never less than intriguing, always effortlessly endearing Tomorrow, the British psychedelic pop legends who would later go on to give us such mercurial-sounding underground pop gems as ‘My White Bicycle’ and ‘Revolution’. Here, they can be heard as they transit forward from their more mod-inclined previous incarnation when they operated as the In Crowd, and now giving out with the softly attacking charm of ‘Am I Glad To See You’.” (Quoted from: http://www.psychedelicbabymag.com/2014/08/original-soundtrack-blow-up-1966-review.html)


“Sandy Coast started as a skiffle Group in Voorburg, Holland, 1961. Notwithstanding the many merits of the other group members, Sandy Coast was the brainchild of composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Hans Vermeulen (1947-2017). As a pop group, they excelled in nice, harmonic, classic songs, such as We’ll Meet Again (no. 30, 1966), Sorry She’s Mine (no. 40), A Girl Like You ( no. 28), And Her Name Is…Amy (no. 22), I See Your Face Again (no. 12, 1968) and True Love, That’s A Wonder (no. 3, 1971). Amazingly, they never broke the Top Ten in the sixties. At the end of that decade, the group turned psychedelic and experimental, delivering ‘From The Workshop’ in 1968. Such was their professionalism and status in the music industry, that Larry Page of Page One records (The Troggs, etc.) came to see them in Holland and signed them on the spot. Chartwise, they fared better in the early seventies, but Vermeulen disbanded Sandy Coast when he considered he had given everything he had to give”.  © Eddy Bonte for Radio 68. Radio 68 plays the entire ‘From The Wokshop’ album.
