The Golden Earrings are the band that would later change its name into Golden Earring.

'Lonely Every Day' was supposed to be their second single, to be released in late 1965, following the Top 10 chart success of their début 45, 'Please Go'.

However, shortly before release the teenage band members found out that the title of the B-side ('Not To Find') was grammatically incorrect. It is an all too literal translation of the Dutch "niet te vinden": 'nowhere to be found' or 'impossible to come by'.

Embarrassed, they decided to withdraw the single. It was never released. All records already manufactured were destroyed. Apparently, some 25 copies survived. An original copy of the 'Lonely Every Day' 7-inch is, indeed, 'not to find' (and worth a small fortune if you do happen to come across a copy).
