I haven't been able to find out much about about Lia Hokke except that she is from the Den Briel area and released a few singles on the CNR label, one being Kussen Onder Regenbogen (Kisses under rainbows). Another one, Hij Is Weer Terug (He is back again), is featured here.
Lia Hokke and band used to perform live a lot in the sixties and in 2002 they were part of a come back concert with bands from the area in Hellevoetsluis.
The a-side of the single, Hij Is Weer Terug is a coverversion of Er Ist Wieder Da, a German 1965 hit for Marion Maerz. An English version He Is Back Again was recorded by Peggy March.
