Fred van Zegveld
Hammond Organ Dynamite

320 Kbps Vinyl Rip

Fred van Zegveld became known as the organ player of a charting Beatlesque group called Roek Williams & The Fighting Cats, though they changed their name into Roek's Family on the day Fred joined them in 1968, ready for their biggest hit Get Yourself A Ticket in '69.
-
1969 must have been a busy year for him, because Van Zegveld was also a member of a group called The Flood that year, together with two musicians that also played in Roek Williams's group: Richard de Bois on bass (who became a top producer ten years later, for amongst others The Dolly Dots) and Will Luikinga on sax and flute (who became a famous dj on Radio Veronica afterwards).
-
Van Zegveld's only solo album "Dynamite" shows his love for Booker T & The MG's, Jimmy Smith and such, though most of the tracks on it are his own compositions. Van Zegveld, who is still active as a musician today, doesn't even own a proper copy of his album anymore, and if he wants to buy one on eBay, he has to pay at least 300 dollars!

I downloaded the .ace file, but when I try to open it with UnaceX on my Mac I'm prompted for a password. I tried leaving it blank with no success.

What's the password for this file?

Thanks.

No password. The download must be corrupt. Try to download it again.

Or download as ZIP file:
