Biography

Very successful, but essentially a one-hit-wonder-, group of the late sixties.


Wallace Collection was a group that was founded on the remains of the group Sylvester’s Team. Three of the original member (namely Sylvain Vanholme, Freddy Nieuland and Marc Hérouet) then went on to form the band 16th Century, together with bass-player Christian Janssens and the classical musicians Raymond Vincent and Jacques Namotte. These two were members in the Belgian National Philharmonic Orchestra, but had been flirting with popular music already in a band called Stradivarius.

The group was launched from Britain, and a new name was found in a museum next to the EMI-headquarters : The Wallace Collection. Australian David Mckay did the production of the first record of the band “Laughing cavalier”

The band and the album were an instant success due to the single “Daydream”. It became a hit in over 20 countries and sold millions of copies.

Sylvain Vanholme recalls how this breakthrough was also responsible for the downfall of the band in “Wit-Lof from Belgium” : “There was chaos. One day we would be playing in the North of Holland, the next day in Spain. We didn’t have time to rehearse or write new material. Between to concerts, they booked us a studio and said : quickly record a song like “Daydream”. The quality of the singles that followed went steadily downward. “Love” and “Serenade” at least made it to the Belgian Top 30.

    Ну нехорошо, когда в названии трэка даже не удаляют OST Mister Nobody. Неуважительно как-то.
