Golden Earring: CD or Vinyl? Location: NH. Most of Golden Earring's studio albums seem expensive and hard to find on CD. The packaging for the "Switch" disc sucks too; I know it's not a big deal to some collectors but I can't stand it when there aren't any liner notes or even a mention as to who band members are: only an advert for the rest of the Red Bullet Golden Earring line. Should I go for import vinyl instead or are there better CD issues out there?

Instrumental "Intro" provides nice atmosphere alternating between a slow tempo spacey part and a more hard rocking section that follows.
There are subdued vocals repeating the Latin phrase "Plus Minus Absurdio" in a more instrumental effect. The title track invites us to a more familiar GE territory with its groovy sound based on irresistible twin guitars boogie rocking and fine Hay's singing. Also, guitar effects are wonderfully used. With its 6,5 minutes duration it is a song most resembling a sort of prog rock, along with the "Intro". The rest of the album is not on par with these three gems. Slightly funky "Love Is a Rodeo" starts with a guitar chord or riff that would be later perfected on the future hit "Mad Love's Coming" off "Contraband" LP, but multi-vocal chorus is not very effective here.
Another song that was perhaps composed to act as the album's hit single is reggae-tinged "Tons of Time" opening the B-side of the vinyl. It is a nice melodic track with good organ and synth backing, that would probably get more attention had it been released around during the post-punk ska revival and emergence of commercial "lover's rock" branch of Jamaican music.
The rest of this album is occupied by unremarkable generic rock tracks, whose occasional good solo on saxophone strangely, not by Barry Hay but by a guest musician , piano or guitar cannot redeem a true value. That said, this album is still a good one.
There is nothing particularly wrong even with these lesser tracks. It is just that from the prog rock perspective even if GE are not considered a "true" representative of the genre there is much left to be desired. Yes indeed. There are big differences between side 1 and 2 on the album. Side 1 is the most proggy ,and side 2 more pop radio friendly.
