HARRY MERRY - ABOUT ME (1/4)
  Dear visitor!

May I please introduce myself to you? My name is Harry Merry, songwriter and entertainer. My age amounts to the number of thirty three and I try to earn my bread in the capacity mentioned above. Maybe it is better if I will start at the beginning......

I was born on November 15th 1971 in the West of Rotterdam. My aunt was the happy owner of a pub in Delft. When I was a few years old and when my mother and me were visiting that place regularly, I always went to stand on a chair in front of a juke-box, which was situated there in a corner with the purpose of overviewing the happenings that occured behind the glass. I was hypnotized by all these vinyl-singles constantly rotating with those specifically coloured lable-etiquettes in the middle. You know how it was in the seventies. My most favourite ones were from Apple-records, Pye Records (especially the dark pink one) and CBS-records (the old orange one; not the ugly later one). So whenever I hear a song from Mungo Jerry I see the Pye-emblem turning round in my thoughts. At home my parents bought me a small record-player with singles, that granted me many an hour of pleasant distraction. A few years later I began to play the piano. My older brother obtained the Dutch/German Odeon-compilation-album "Beatles' Greatest" (in countries outside of Holland this LP has become an expensive collector's item; in Holland you can fortunately still buy it for 5 Euro. It still is my most favourite Beatles compilation.) and thanks to him I also got in touch with Walt Disney, whose animation-films we watched with the whole family by method of a Super 8 film-projector projecting the moving images on the wall. Yes, my friends, those were the happiest years of my life during which time I fully absorbed everything I beheld......
