Supersister from The Hague started out in 1968 under the name of Sweet O.K. Supersister.  Line-up: Robert Jan Stips (vocals, keyboards), Ron van Eck (bass, guitar), Marco Vrolijk (drums, vocals) and Sacha van Geest (vocals, flute).

In 1973, the latter two were replaced by, respectively, Herman van Boeyen (ex-Livin' Blues) and American Charlie Mariano (brass, very active in the jazz, e.g. in Ambush and Embryo).   In 1974, the group broke apart; in their last days they played with: John Schuursma (guitar, ex-Brainbox, to Third Eye), Rob Kruisman (sax, flute, ex-Bintangs, to Carlsberg) and Englishman Elton Dean (sax, ex-Soft Machine and Just Us, later in the re-born Georgie Fame & Blue Flames).

Robert Jan went to Golden Earring; Ron to Stamp 'n Go; Marco to CCC, Herman to Red White & Blue; Charlie to Porkpie.
