Elvis In Nederland

Some years ago the book "Elvis In Nederland" (Elvis In The Netherlands) by Rob van Scheers was released. This edition features interviews with well known Dutch artists like Junkie XL, Ellen ten Damme, Jan Cremer, Monique van de Ven, André Hazes, Andy Tielman, Connie Palmen, and Hans van Manen, talking about their love for Elvis. This book will soon be re-released, this time in colour with a CD of Dutch artists like Bob Fosko, Bennie Jolink, Vincent Bijlo, Bluegrass Boogiemen, Erwin Nijhoff, Roosbeef, JW Roy, Denise Jannah, Thom Hoffman and the Bintangs, singing well known Elvis songs in the Dutch language. Rumour has it that a concert is in the works of those artists singing their songs live as a tribute to Elvis.

I think you are correct, Luyken, some of the above mentioned performers will sing in Dutch,like Jolink from the band Normaal... But ass kickin' rockers such as the incredible Erwin Nyhoff and nitty gritty Bintangs ( doing Burning Love on this cd) will stick to English. Any idea if Frederique Spigt ( hope I spell her name correct?) is featured on the cd? She did brilliant versions of Suspicious Minds and Do You Know Who I Am at the big Elvis Party, in De Melkweg, several years ago...

Erwin Nyhoff has my vote! He's in the book as well. Does a fantastic version of Edge Of Reality!

Well I have seen Maarten Jansen in Memphis with the Memphis Boys in January 2005 and he was great! It all depends on the songs he has to sing!

the first edition came out nearly 10 years ago, if I do remember correctly! The new revised edition features a truckload of photographs from the Ger Rijff collection...? And the songs on the bonus cd are performed in English, not Dutch. And yes, there are excellent Dutch performers who can sing Presley songs, the way they should be sung... without gettin' into a bloody jumpsuit first.

I don't know any good Dutch singer who ever did an Elvis tribute. Good luck with this project, but spare me
