Artiestinformatie

Land   Nederland

Nederlandse band als afsplitsing van Tee-Set: Hans van Eijck (zang, orgel), Ray Fenwick (zang, gitaar), Rob “Polle” Eduard (zang, gitaar, bas) en Martin Hage (drums).



Na hun debuutalbum National Disaster (1968) keert Van Eijck weer terug bij Tee-Set. Engelsman Fenwick gaat in dat jaar terug naar zijn geboorteland om Steve Winwood in de Spencer Davis Group op te volgen. Zijn vervanger is Ferry Lever, afkomstig uit Les Baroques.



In 1968 wordt Hage vervangen door Pierre van der Linden (later in Focus) en vervolgens door Ilja Gort. Onder de naam De Martino’s worden enkele smartlappen opgenomen.



In 1969 treedt de Duitse toetsenist Uly Grün (voorheen in Boots) tot de groep toe. After Tea gaat in 1971 uit elkaar, maar in 1975 nemen Eduard, Lever en Gort nog onder de naam After Tea de single Mexico [VIP VP-7490] op.


Songtekst

When the snowflakes are falling on Amsterdam
I'll be coming home to you

A letter air express
I guess around last May
But from where it came
I'm afraid I could not say

It proved to me one thing
Thank heaven now I know
That the world is but a stage
And my life is but a show

My life is but a show
My life is but a show

When the snowflakes are falling on Amsterdam
I'll be coming home to you
How you cried when I told you on that tram
There was nothing I could do

The happy time we'd had
But I knew it had to end
The letter that I got
Was from enemy nor friend

But still I had to leave
My time was all used up
I had a lot of downs
But at last I found some luck

At last I found some luck
At last I found some luck

When the snowflakes are falling on Amsterdam
I'll be coming home to you
How you cried when I told you on that tram
There was nothing I could do

When the snowflakes are falling on Amsterdam
I'll be coming home to you
How you cried when I told you on that tram
There was nothing I could
Nothing I should
Nothing I would do
