On Moontan the playing is distinctive, the songs are great and the sound is powerful. This is relentless rock n roll and I'm very happy that I have it in my collection.
If you like this get "Who's Next", "Argent In Deep" Free's "Heartbreaker" and Deep Purple's "Machine Head" - if you've got these albums you'll know what I mean.
And after hearing 'Are you receiving me' and 'Vanilla Queen' I went out and bought the vinyl.
Years later, after getting bored with searching out new music, I decided to go back into my deep dark musical vinyl past, and lo iTunes had Moontan available for download. How disappointed I was to find out I'd bought the Netherlands/German version of the album by mistake.
If you buy this album try and get the first UK or US version. 'Big Tree, Blue Sea' is way better than 'Just Like Vince Taylor'and 'Suzy Lunacy' IMO.
This is rare, creative stuff from the Glam-Drag early 70's.
Everyone knows and loves the track 'Radar Love', but this album is so much more than a one hit padded album. No sooner has Radar Love finished when you are carried along into a series of brilliantly written tracks which flow into each other. It makes you sing along, stamp your feet, drum your palms and rock your bod!
It's a masterpiece. I've played it to many and never heard a disapproving voice. How this album is not revered and better known is beyond me.
Trust me - buy it!!
This latest reissue may have the original (excellent) cover pic, but what it doesn't have is Big Tree, Blue Sky ~ a crucial omission. The four tracks from the original album that are here are all in the wrong order, whilst two other hitherto completely unknown tracks have been added in place of Big Tree, Blue Sky. Why?
The first CD issue, though not badged as a digital remaster, is a quite respectable transcription of the original album, with all five tracks in the correct order, and is therefore the only one to have. Check out, for example, the elephant chorus on Vanilla Queen which rounds off what was S.1 of the original vinyl LP and the great bit of wah wah guitar on Big Tree, Blue Sky which opens S.2.
The only other significant shortcoming of the original CD issue is the virtually total absence of any sleeve data ~ all you get is a track listing and a note of the composers (all George Kooymans and Barry Hay, except for the closing track which was co-written with somebody called J. Fenton). The latter seems to have been a member of the band but what he played isn't listed, unlike the other four of them, namely Barry Hay (vocals, flute and saxophones), Cesar Zuiderwijk (drums, with twin kickers, and percussion), George Kooymans (guitars and second vocal) and Rinus Gerritsen (bass, moog and other keyboards). Guest artistes include Patricia Paay (vocals), Eelco Gelling (slide guitar) and Bertus Borgers (saxophone).Read more ›
Make sure that you buy the version of this fantastic album that contains the track "Big Tree Blue Sea" - a reworking of a track from one of GE's earlier albums
This version is far weaker with "Suzy Lunacy" & "Vince Taylor" hence only 3 (& a half) stars. With "Big Tree....." the album merits the full 5 stars - it's been my favourite album for 25 years plus...

Like most people I'd only really heard of Radar Love. I never realised that they'd brought out so many albums and I can see why they are so popular. Superb CD, brilliant music. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Mr. Andrew P. Stange
