Although prominent Dutch blues band Livin' Blues from The Hague came to prominence in 1969, they had been around since 1967. The line-up by then was: Ted Oberg (guitar, ex-Crashdown and Andy Star & Stripes), Ruud Fransen (bass, ex-Stripes), Bjorn Toll (vocals), Niek Dijkhuys (drums) and John Lagrand (harp, ex-Indiscrimination).
In 1970, Cesar left the group to join Golden Earring and was succeeded by, resp., John den Blanke (ex-Soul Serenade) and Dick Beekman (ex-Cuby, to Lynx). In 1971, John Lejeune (ex-Island, to Schick Band) entered the group as the new drummer, as did, in 1972, Herman van Boeyen (ex-Panda). In addition, there was a change of bassists: in 1971, Ruud van Buuren went on to join Long Tall Ernie and was succeeded by Jan van der Voort (ex-Full House, later in Free & Easy), who, in 1972, was, in turn, replaced by by Jaap van Eijk (ex-Panda).
In 1974, the group's lineup was totally revised yet again; also more emphasis was made on rock than blues in their newly adopted direction. The line-up featured: Ted, Johnny Frederiksz (vocals, ex-Temple, Kjoe, Q'65) and Henk Smitskamp (back on bass; ex-Shocking Blue). In 1975, ex-Finch organist Paul Vink also participated for a short period of time. Further additions involved: Ron Meyes (guitar, ex-Brainbox, Q'65, to Marx and Knack) and Cor van Beek (drums, ex-Leo Unger, later in Headline, replaced Michel Driessen in 1974, ex-Cobra).
