Spirit of St. Louis –See Me Go

Spirit of St. Louis-Something Lazy/See Me Go –Hansa 14829 AT (1970 German issue)

This is the first single from this Leiden (NL) band who released at least 4 more singles. The band in this earlier incarnation was comprised of brothers Roland (guitar) and Arthur De Leeuw (drums) with Martin Kramer (bass). See Me Go is a Top Neder-Cruncher which makes me think of The Pretty Things gone Hard Rock filtered through S.F Sorrow but keeping their 60s R&B rawness. It features some cutting lead guitar at the cusp of Freakbeat and Heavier fare. The A side is a good mid tempo number, although less wild in its approach while their next single Down by The Radio (1974) was more commercial a bit like CCR covering Yellow River (Christie). So a one B side wonder?

Hey Robin. Considering how unstable Divshare has become over the last year, have you ever considered Soundcloud? It's a much better interface & since these cuts you're sharing are FAR out of danger of being flagged for copyright violation, you can expect zero trouble. Just a thought!

Thanks for the tip. I have joined a few other options, but have not looked into them as yet. Cincopa is not user friendly, but is a good stopgap. I have to see how you embed the soundcloud player on the blog as well as for youtube listing. There has been some communication from divshare, there are changing data centre providers. Frustrating, but it seems some/ a lot/ all files have been lost. I will have time to explore options soon Thanks
