This review is from: Just Earrings + 6 (Audio CD)
1st Earrings album from 65.
A corker of an album for fans of 60s beat.
Great beaty sound,no fuzz boxes or the like,just those lovely old semi-accoustic guitars cranked up through those lovely valve amps with the rhythm guitars really up front in the mix,boomy bass drum and tight snare drum.
polished sound but with a harder edge than say,The Hollies.
Not quite freakbeat but sometimes delivered at breakneck pace.
I really believe the Dutch give the Brits a run for their money in this department,of course they have a sound of their own.
Great album that stands up to just about anything from the period.
Bonus tracks are excellent especially the last one "Smoking Cigarettes"which is obviously from a different session as it is dated 1966 and has a slightly mod soul flavour and it just sticks in your head.
