Radavique's B-sides from Netherlands 1984 [lossless!!]

And what a gorgeous cover graphic, again!

Rectilinear symphonic, dominated by keys, all short numbers.  Pearls of the dawn, and I will, I hear have a different style hear with folky influences and female vocals. The album was released as a private oil and is highly sought after by collectors of Dutch progressive music. As such Radavique was also included in the booklet  Private English of Limburger Jean Jobses."

And you can see from the discography, there was no a-sides record, the title must be a joke.
But the music is no joke.  It's great and slightly progressive pop that all of us can now appreciate, 30 years later...  And for most of you out there I'm sure a nice welcome break from the fusion and jazz.
