Golden Earring - Holy Holy Life 7" (1971)
In the beginning of 1971, is issued this second Golden Earring single of our series, neither side being on albums, so that the B-side, "Jessica", is rather hard to find and, to my knowledge, has never been released on any CD. So this is an opportunity to listen to this fantastic song, one of their best, with a Free-inspired muddy atmosphere and a perfect climax for amateurs of swampy rock (whatever it means). This is a rip from my vinyl single but honestly, this time, it's quite difficult to know. The A-side, "Holy Holy Life" is still played by the band today and has been quite a hit in Nederland in February 1971 (n°5). The Rolling Stones could have sued them cos' it is really similar to "Live With Me", but since now every heavy band do his job on such rip off, what's the hell. Enjoy it here.
