In between the Golden Earring albums 'Seven Tears' and 'Together', guitarist George Kooymans and singer Barry Hay both worked on solo material. Kooymans’ album 'Jojo' was released in December 1971 and was the result of a sparkling and short period of recording sessions at the Phonogram Studio in Hilversum, where he recorded a collection of songs with some of the best Dutch session musicians – among guitarists Eelco Gelling (Cuby + Blizzards) and Hans Hollestelle and saxophone player Bertus Borgers (Sweet d’Buster). Thanks to the personal lyrics, with help from George’s friends Bruce Kirkman en Jerry Voisin, Harry van Hoof’s string arrangements and the spontaneous recordings, Jojo achieved a cultstatus, for which collectors were willing to pay big money. For this reissue, fifty years later, George Kooymans tells the whole story about the making of the album in the 8-page booklet. The album has been remastered for the first time from the original Phonogram Studio master tapes – recently unearthed from the Red Bullet archives.
