Earth and Fire - Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Tonight




Ok, once again proving that everything and anything goes, here is a really strange cut by "Earth & Fire" minus the "Wind".

This a really odd track that sounds kind of like a psychedelic ABBA! Odd pounding tribal drums over effected heavy organ sounds, wah-wah guitar and a wild guitar solo that sounds if Yngwie himself were were playing, all over this kind of syrupy sweet vocal line and chorus = strange. The even stranger thing is is that i really dig it...

Not sure what that says about me. But take a listen and tell me what you think...

i may just be out of my mind on this one....

Anywho, this was a Hit in the Netherlands where these guys and gal were from which accounts for some of the oddity here i would assume.

This hit #7 in NL and was their 7th Top 10 Hit in NL....
Started in 1967 with twin Brothers Chris (Guitar) and Gerard (Keyboards) Koerts, Hans Ziech (Bass) and Hans Kalis as a group called "Opus Gainfull" also female singer "Manuela Berloth" was in the band at this point but became sick at the beginning of 1969... They changed the name of their band to "Earth & Fire" and Jerney Kaagman was added as the new singer, who apparently is now a judge on the Dutch version of "American Idol"...
