Ruthless queen - Kayak

After some personnel changes, the band Kayak, which had been going for 16 years, was working with a new lead singer, Edward Reekers, and for the first time with two female backing vocalists (Irene Linders and Katherine Lapthorn. Enormous success followed with the commercial-sounding single 'Ruthless queen' and its parent album 'Phantom of the night'.

'Ruthless queen' became the biggest hit of Kayak's career, peaking at number 6 in the Dutch Top 40. For some time, Kayak was my favourite Dutch band, even though I was only eight years old.

My collection: 7" single no. 712
Found: All that music, Leiden, December 30, 1988
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Ruthless queen' / 'Ivory dance'
