Veteran Dutch rockers Golden Earring are offering a free download from their new album. If you haven't heard them, you don't know what you've missed.
Golden Earring burst onto the English language music scene in 1973 with their Moontan album and massive single Radar Love, but they were veterans even then, having been founded in 1961, 8 years before UFO!
Lead guitarist George Kooymans and bass/keyboard player Rinus Gerritsen are founder members while Barry Hay and Cesar Zuiderwijk have been there nearly as long. Chances are you'll have heard Radar Love, but it is hard to believe that is actually the weakest track on this vastly under-rated album. Of the 5 tracks, the epic Are You Receiving Me is unquestionably the strongest, but to date...the band have recently sent out an e-mail that reads as follows:
