Originally released in 1973, this is the album that raised the band to an international level of popularity, primarily on the strength of the hit single and enduring radio favourite "Radar Love." Moontan still is the band's most successful album internationally, and paved the way for these Dutch rockers in the USA (where "Candy's Going Bad" was also released as a single). Around the time of the album's release, Golden Earring toured the States with opening acts that would become huge rock bands only a few years later (Aerosmith and KISS). They also shared stages with names like Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd.

The line-up of the Earring at that time was Barry Hay, George Kooymans, Rinus Gerritsen and Cesar Zuiderwijk, with special guests Eelco Gelling (slide guitar), Bertus Borgers (saxophone) and Patricia Paay ("lady vocal") on this particular LP. The record combines progressive epics and heavy rockers, and sometimes even combines both elements in one song. Moontan is not just a necessity for Golden Earing fans, it's a worthwhile listen for anyone interested in Seventies Rock at its most adventurous.

Moontan is available as a limited edition of 2.500 individually numbered copies on turquoise coloured vinyl.
