In 1969 bluesgroup ‘Crusade’ was founded by Henk Bol aka Philhelmon. After some time, like many other bluesgroups, 'Crusade' changed their music in 1971 to Progressive Rock.
In 1973 they signed an exclusive contract with the famous Paul Acket Agency and even appeared at the Holland Festival of that year.
In 1974 they started recording at the Rainbow Studios in The Hague. These sessions were to produce a first single and an album. Due to the world wide oil crisis this was, unfortunately, never to be. The disappointment eventually led to the break up of the band.
In 2000 Sound Art & Design restored these recordings and now you can enjoy them too.
