Description

The Shocking Blue “Live In Japan” was recorded in July 1971 at the Kosei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo and includes massive hit songs such as “Venus”, “Hot Sand”, “Never Marry A Railroad Man” and “Shocking You”. Shocking Blue were a Dutch rock band, founded in 1967 by guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen. After the charismatic Mariska Veres took over on vocals, the group charted a worldwide hit with the song “Venus”, which peaked at No. 3 in the Netherlands in 1969. However the song reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1970. It topped the U.S. chart for three weeks, being the first song from the Netherlands to do so, receiving a gold record awarded by the Recording Industry Association of America. Eventually the global sales exceeded five million copies. Unfortunately Mariska Veres died of cancer on 2 December 2006 while Robbie van Leeuwen choses to hide from the public press.
