The sixties and seventies formed an unprecedentedly successful and productive period in Dutch music history. As a tribute to these glory days, a series of 2CDs of the most influential Dutch bands from these golden years have been released under the title 'The Golden Years of Dutch Pop Music'. On each CD, all original A and B sides of the singles are chronologically collected, where possible supplemented with relevant album tracks.
In their eight-year existence, Ekseption came as close as any group from the European continent ever did to stealing the thunder of early classical rock outfits such as the Nice and rivaling the early work of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. In Holland, they charted singles based on classical compositions and released successful concept albums, and were - along with Focus - the top progressive rock band in the Dutch-speaking world.

This contemporary (2003) look at the Dutch symphonic progressive rock band EKSEPTION consists mostly of vintage TV footage showing them miming to their records. There are 24 songs here, and at least 18 of them are productions from Holland TV. In the style of the times, everybody is wearing wild clothing and they're posed in unlikely settings – beaches, rooftops, pools, a tractor salesroom(?) – either with unplugged instruments or, if the budget is really slim, none at all.

EKSEPTION is a Dutch band that was famous during the late sixties/early seventies for the way it combined themes from classical composers with contemporary rock and jazz in a blend of dominating, virtuoso keys and trumpet plus sax(es). The story of EKSEPTION as we know it begins when they won the first prize at the Loosdrecht Jazz Festival in 1968, and they were rewarded with a record contract with Philips. At the suggestion of Rick van der LINDEN, the band's keyboard player, they decided to record rock versions of Beethoven's "Fifth" and Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance". Although initially the single with "The Fifth" did not catch on, three months after it was released suddenly it began to sell like hotcakes, and the basis for the now famous EKSEPTION formula was established: a cocktail of classical music with (symphonic) rock and jazz. Following the success of the single, their first album was recorded, which contained a mix of covers, classical themes in a rock/jazz setting, and one song written by the band.

Beggar Julia's Timetrip is based on a story of a man who travels through time in a spaceship and observes the great composers at work. Thus, the story is of course a perfect setting for introducing some rock/jazz versions of Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Italian Concerto and Tchaikovsky's piano concerto garnished with some Beethoven.

Ekseption's 6th album included some personnel-changes as both Dick Remelink and Peter de Leeuwe were changed by Jan Vennik and Pieter Voogt. But these changes didn't affect the band's musical inspiration and artistic quality as "Trinity" proved to be another of their best albums.
