Golden Earring have been together since 1961 and in the summer of 1971 they recorded the album Seven Tears. They started to experiment, ended up on a psychedelic trip and used the now legendary ARP synthesizer for the first time. The album's highlight is ''She Flies On Strange Wings'', an art rock epic that combines verses done in a stomping, heavy metal style with spacy choruses and a slow, dreamy midsection that is strongly reminiscent of Pink Floyd.
Golden Earring's current line-up includes two founding members George Kooymans (vocals and guitar) and Rinus Gerritsen (bass, keyboard), along with Barry Hay (vocals, guitar, flute and saxophone) a member since 1968 and Cesar Zuiderwijk (drums) a member since 1970. They created over 40 hits and 30 albums, many achieving either gold or platinum status in their home country, the Netherlands.
Seven Tears is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on lime green coloured vinyl and the package contains a 4-page booklet.
