So, right now she is laying right next to me, listening to the Dutch hard rock band The Golden Earring, which started as a poppish beat band but efter a few records changed the musical direction - luckily!
"Eight Miles High" which came out in 1969 is named after the coversong that runs through the whole of side B. And it is a great cover, improvised and original - but my favourite songs are to be found on the first side. Songs like "Song Of A Devil's Servant" and "Everyday's Torture" are very early hard rock and has a real feeling to them, this is pure energy and devotion one hears.
A real gem! Maybe not an ultimate masterpiece but great to listen to.
Fuzzy guitar, Hammond-organ... Hard progressive rock. Can you go wrong there? Few does. ;)
So, if you see this record and it is not too expensive, I advise you to get it! In good shape it's worth quite a lot.
Now, to the music, enjoy!
