Great to see these first three Golden Earrings releases on Compact disc here in the states! I had picked up on the Dutch 3 Originals a few years back and was happy with that...aside from having to again order from Europe to get some darn music I like! I got the entire ( That I know of ) Red Bullet re-releases a few years back ( 18 of them ) and was very happy with those as well....Golden Earring TO ME is the greatest Rock band ever as far as releasing a consistently like-able series of releases from when they started as a band...these guys are just amazing musicians and songwriters, players. Others will think different but I say that's cool...Been enjoying this band since I heard Eight Miles High when it came out...and they are Still out there doing great live shows as well! Rinus and Barry must be great friends after all this time! These guys back then had huge nads doing so much more original stuff than the most popular bands around them at the time....so confident!

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 except for the fact that this record was originally only recorded and released in glorious MONO at the time. Every record or CD re-issue since the original vinyl has appeared in fake stereo and there is no mention of what happened or why.
