Golden Earring

Golden Earring - To The Hilt (1976)
This is the most progressive cd they ever produced and should be added to the Moon. An overlooked gem.

Re: Golden Earring

I have this, but have not heard it in a long time. I will need to give another listen.

Re: Golden Earring

It is an awesome album that, imo as well, is/was quite progressive e.g. Violins http://youtu.be/jrykN2Q6O8I

I vote Yay

Cheers,
Art

Re: Golden Earring

Late april I wrote this after an ( as usual) outstanding show by our Dale
"great selection , GE are well known here in Belgim since their early beginnings, they played a full-house in Antwerp a few weeks ago :-)
LPs of interest for progers are imo ( before they were just a rock band):
Eight miles high ( a huge Byrds' cover)
Golden Earring
Seven tears
Together ( with the great rack Brother Wind)
Moontan
Switch ( the hard task to follow the himalayesque Moontan , ce soir ce soir assassination d'une rock n roll star :-))
To the hilt
it was their last 'progressive record' , facing a lack of succcess they wwent back to good r'n'r
also of interest :
the Live : double LP of 1977 , fantastic allthrough, with Elcoo Geeling on lead guitar ( ex-Cubby and the Blizzard / dutch blues band)
Barry Hay the singer recorded a fine ( but hard to find) solo Lp called only parrots, frogs and angels on POLYDOR records) in 72 imo ( feature an 8 minutes long track called Xena)
just for the record
GE formed in 1961 , recorded his first single in 1965 [ Please Go],

Re: Golden Earring

Mailotron is correct, Switch is also a killer prog addition.

Talking Re: Golden Earring

Schup must have posted this on a blue moon. Because it is rare when I actually agree with "the Tron". But Yes! To the Hilt and Switch should be added here. Anyone have a copy to donate? And I think the song "Candy's going bad" from Moontan. Should also be included! I knew a girl named Candy. But that is another story.

Re: Golden Earring

I would not disagree that GE should be here in a limited capacity, but I am still more interested in seeing 10cc here before GE, Just my humble opinion

Re: Golden Earring

Listened to the 1977 live album on Dale's COTM last night. I found it to be pretty good rock 'n roll. Hardly progressive, though.

I would agree with that assessment, Ken. I am not going to put the whole album up, but perhaps a few more closely related tracks from that album.

I have yet to rip another live album that is more around the time of To The Hilt and Switch. I also have To The Hilt in the 'rip next' pile too.

All coming to a prog library near you (when you turn on Aural Moon that is.)
