The Flying Guitar – The Flying Guitar
Palette MPB-S-3294 (Belgium 1969)
Belter 22.545 (Spain 1971 ?)
In 1969, two years after Belgium’s premium band The Cousins had disbanded, producer Roland Kluger asked lead guitar player André Van Den Meerschaut (aka André Hasse aka André Shore) to record yet another album. With help from only two other musicians (bass and drums), André recorded all guitar parts for this album. The recording engineer was Pierre Dupriez, the musical adviser was Willy Albimoor. The recording took place at Studio Madeleine in Brussels.
The LP came out in 1969 as The Flying Guitar, with 11 tracks (3 of them being original songs written by Van Den Meerschaut). The LP had a typical late sixties sound, with shades of pyschedelia and flower-power influences.
The LP cover showed no sign of who The Flying Guitar actually was, so that many people still don’t know today that it was André, The Cousins’ lead guitar player.
