Product Description

The Golden Ear-rings (name change to the singular Golden Earring in 1969) were pioneers - Holland's first home-grown beat-era stars: before The Motions, before Q65, before The Outsiders. Their first single hit the charts in April 1965 and began a career which still thrives today.

Before the international smash Radar Love in 1974 the band had scored an unbroken run of Dutch hit singles during the 60's. Unlike most bands of the era, The Golden Ear-rings wrote their own material - they only ever recorded a single cover version.

The reissue of their first three albums - 1965's Just Earrings, 1967's Winter Harvest and 1968's Miracle Mirror - reveals that The Golden Ear-rings were amazingly assured, years before the international recognition. Bonus tracks from singles complete these reissues, making The Golden Ear-rings' entire recorded works available for the first time They were Holland's secret - but not anymore.

Their music combined the toughness of The Small Faces and the minor-key brooding melodies of The Zombies. They sounded like no one else, always melodic, always focused, always immediate. 1968's Miracle Mirror took on a psychedelic influence to create an album that stands alongside song-based classics like Odyssey And Oracle, Ogden's Nutgone Flake and The Hollies' Butterfly.

* Golden Earring are on tour throughout Jan-June 2009
* Original Front Covers restored

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.

So...my experience with this amazing band started when a friend played an LP called Eight Miles High when I was in my second year of High school in 1972....I was so impressed that after 39 years I am just as impressed with the band now in 2011. That friend had another possession that am also still into...audio gear, he had a Marantz 1060 intergrated amp. After Moontan came out I was hooked big time. To me...just my opinion...Golden Earring is actually the greatest Rock band as far as consistantly good musical output. I much prefer them over The Stones. Don't get me wrong now, I have great respect for the Stones and all but to me after the Mick Taylor years I just can't get into more than one or two songs on each release that the Stones have put out, while I truely enjoy every song Golden Earring has done since day one.George Kooymans and Rinus Gerritson have been writing songs together longer than the Jagger/Richards duo and I'm not one to base an opinion solely on the amount of records sold but by the likeable content of the output...to each his own...In 1999 I picked up on the Euro only release of 3 Originals, which is the first three Earring releases on two Compact discs and 13 bonus tracks so this is not the first time this release has been put out on CD but I'm hoping the remaster of the first three I just ordered here will sound even better. I also have the 18 Red Bullet reissues as well as everything else they have out I can get my hands on...which is most of the original vinyl relesed in the states..except I'm still trying to track down Just Earrings on vinyl! I do have 34 release on CD and 19 on vinyl...and I hear they are working on a new release for 2011...yeah! And actually the same four guys in Earring have been together since the lp Golden Earring ( Wall of Dolls ) which was in 1970 Ceaser joined in late 1969 ..cheers

This record is making its very first appearance in Britain, although it came out in Holland in the mid 1960's. The bonus tracks are appropriate mono singles. Nice package and marvelous remastered sound. Highly recommended.
