    American listeners tend to remember Shocking Blue as the one-hit wonder behind the chart-topper "Venus," a melting pot of rock rhythms, country guitar licks, organ riffs, and Mariska Veres' heavily accented vocals. Sounding something like a cross between "96 Tears" and "Sugar, Sugar," "Venus" was not entirely representative of the group's first album, At Home.

    Oct 07,  · I recently acquired the self-titled Shocking Blue LP on Colossus. I think this configuration was only available in Canada and the U.S. The LP plays true stereo for all of the songs except "Venus" and "Mighty Joe". "Mighty Joe" is mono, same as my "Venus" sounds like it was futzed with a bit. Not quite mono, but fairly close.

    Shocking Blue's record label did them a disservice by not promoting the band enough in this country. The CD is full of solid, catchy tunes that surely would have been well received had the American public been made aware. Of course, "Venus" was the big hit around the world, but songs like "Love Buzz" and "California Here I Come" are also /5(47).

    “California Here I Come” and the already-mentioned “Long and Lonesome Road” are just as catchy, just as cool, just as memorable as “Venus,” as is a song called “Love Buzz,” which Nirvana eventually covered (not too well, but they get points for having the cool to pay the tribute) on Bleach.
