Dutch and German fans knew Golden Earring (and their early incarnation The Golden Earrings) as a second-tier pop/psychedelic group dating back to the mid-1960s, but for most listeners in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada, the first exposure to the group came in 1973 with the crashing 14-note guitar-and-cymbals introduction to ' Radar Love' on the local top-40 radio station.
WE learned it from Chendra-Shekar when we were recently at Canyon Ranch.
Susan has gotten into the chants as part of her yoga practice and this painting seemed a visual expression of the tones and form of the Does that help Roger?
Golden Earring's 1973 US album Moontan, itself a reworking of an earlier European release, was targeted at the then-expanding FM progressive rock radio audience and seemed an unlikely source for a breakout hit single: five extended jams averaging over eight minutes per song. When I'm feeling lonely and I'm sure I've had enough. Don't need no radio at all We got a thing that's called radar love We got a light in the sky We got a thing and its called radar love We got a thing that's called Radar love Susan Roth in her studio with Thai Dancer.He took some initial notes but did not return to the idea until a few years later, while in Ireland.

An unknown engineer took ' Radar Love', which at a relatively compact six-and-a-half minutes was already the tightest of the album cuts, excised the instrumental solos (save for a drum-and-synth break which became the focal point of the short version) and tightened the opening and closing, creating a single half the length of the original jam.after galavanting Uptown, MOMAing with Shannon, Josh and Susan... prowling around Prospect Park with Ranjit and Samson and drinking too much coffee which is why I am still awake.
