Wallace Collection

Profile:
Formed : 1968 // Belgium
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 Herouet) 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 biggest future for the ex-members of The Wallace Collection would be for Sylvain Vanholme, who has had huge hits with Two Man Sound and has produced a large number of Belgian records since (e.g. Octopus (5), Salix Alba, Machines, Gorki, Jo Lemaire + Flouze, Kids).

Anno 2001, the Wallace Collection still remains "in the picture", because ""Daydream" is becoming somewhat of a "standard", covered all around the globe. In 2001 for example there was a mellow version of Paul Michiels, a cool version by I Monster and an awesome one by the Beta Band (as "squares" on their album "hot shots II").

Disbanded : 1971
Members: Sylvain Vanholme (guitar), Freddy Nieuland (drums, vocals), Marc Hérouet (organ, keyboards), Christian Janssens (bass), Raymond Vincent (violin), Jacques Namotte (cello)

Member Freddy Nieuland, vocals on their very great hit "Daydream" died at the age of 63 years on January, 11th 2008.

Wallace Collection was a Belgian pop rock group active in the late
1960s and early 1970s. Wallace Collection was formed from the ashesof
a group called Sylvester's Team, three of which began playing Under
the name 16th Century along with bassist Christian Jannsens and 2
members of the Belgian National Philharmonic Orchestra, Raymond
Vincent and Jacques Namotte. Wallace Collection based itself out of
Britain, naming itself after the famous museum adjacent to the
headquarters of their record label,EMI. Their debut studio album,
"Laughing Cavalier", was recorded at the Abbey Road Studios and was
released in 1969. The great single "Daydream" became a hit in 21
countries, including going #1 in Belgium. In the wake of its success,
the group toured Europe, the United States, Mexico and South America.
They also composed the soundtrack to a French film with the legendary
French actor Michel Simon in 1970 (La Maison). Later 7", such as
"Serenade" and "Love" were hits in Belgium and some other countries
but did not reach the level of "Daydream", and the group split up in
1971.
