What spectacularly original long playing album came out of Holland in the 60s?

What is Tony Judy talking about here: [...]the European Sixties were always Eurocentric. Even the 'Hippy Revolution' never quite crossed the Atlantic. At most it washed up on the shores of Great Britain and Holland, leaving behind some sedimentary evidence in the form of a more developed drug culture than elsewhere -- and one spectacularly original long-playing record. -- Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945, page 398 No footnote, no endnote, nothing. Anyone have any theories about what album he's talking about?
