Description: The author unravels the mysterious tale behind the Dutch white record phenomena, talking with those who produced the records, those who bought them and those who fought them. From the underground, clandestine activities of idealistic hippies and timid students to canny entrepreneurs, the production of white records exposed a gap in Dutch legislation that enabled enterprising mavericks to get – often with permission from copyright organisation Stemra and even a helping hand from broadcasters – their decidedly unkosher records pressed, both in the Netherlands and abroad. A bonus 7inch included with this limited edition of 500 copies features exclusive interviews on the subject from the VPRO-Vrijdag archives (with Ton Schreurs, Ruud Jacobs and Wim van Parera from March 20, 1970 and with Roger McGuinn from May14, 1971).
