Pim Maas (the Dutch Elvis) singles 1959_1962

Indorocker requested 'the Dutch Elvis' Pim Maas. And yep I have.

On 1959_may_28 the 14 year old Pim Maas participated in a Dutch Elvis Presley imitation contest at the Royal cinema in Amsterdam. Backed with the Presley Cats (in which his father Pim Maas sr played the saxophone) he performed Tutti Frutti & Baby, I Don't Care. Out of 339 candidates young Pim won and his price was a record contract. Second became Ria Valk.
Elvis Presley invited Pim Maas to Bad Neuheim in Germany where he was in the army at the time. Pim joined Elvis for two days. Later on he said 'it was a unique event which changed my life. I'll never forget those remarkable days'. The same year his first single All Right Baby/Kansas City is issued. He records until 1962.
In 1973 he leaves Holland to the States where he starts an antique shop. Three more singles are recorded. In 1991 Pim Maas returns to Holland. Pim Maas still performs in the oldies circuit.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080919
The file is a small 25MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_september article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !

....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
Allereerst bedankt voor de fantastische posting van Pim Maas. Persoonlijk een van de betere Nederlandse artiesten op het gebied van rock & roll muziek. Helaas is Pim Maas te weinig bekend bij het publiek. Misschien heeft dit te maken dat er zo weinig materiaal van hem bekend is maar de ware reden weet ik niet. De Nederlandse artiesten welke rock & roll muziek ten gehore brachten worden in het algemeen zwaar onder gewaardeerd in eigen land. Zit misschien wel een beetje in onze cultuur alles wat van ver komt is namelijk beter is vaak de gedachte hier in Nederland.
voor de liefhebbers ik heb zelf ook weer een posting gedaan hier is de link:
Maar je mag ook even op mijn webblog kijken voor links naar meer postings
