Glam Sandwich & Electric Flares


Just came across this compilation on the Web. It looks like it’s vinyl only. As it’s a bootleg, they haven’t included the artists for copyright reasons, can anyone fill in the gaps and confirm some of the artists? I especially would like to know who did Zap N Cat.
Here is a link where there are sound clips for each song. I am in no way recommending its purchase, side 2 is pretty weak, but it’s there…

This might help Robin...

Bubbles - "This Is Where The Hurdie Gurdie Heebie Geebie Greenie Meenie Man Came In" / "Zap 'n' Cat" - Decca F 13583 (10/75)

Silver Pony - "Lonely Ranger" / "The Apple & The Arrow" - EMI International INT 524 (08/76)

Never seen the records but they're from the right era, so I'm pretty sure they'll be what you're looking for. Can't help with the others.

"Zap n Cat" is Bubbles (other side = "This Is Where The Hurdie Gurdie" Decca, 1975),
"Vanessa's...." is Edwina Biglet (other side = "Thing", RCA, 1972),
"The Apple And The Arrow" is Silver Pony (other side = "Lonely Ranger", EMI, 1976), "Will You Stop That" is Ruby Pearl (other side = "Shang-a-lang Song", Magnet, 1974). "Peter Gunn" could be anyone, obviously... what about Thunder Road on Buddah, 1972, maybe?

I think this version is from the "Three For All" Soundtrack LP from 1975

Heard "Peter Gunn" on the "The Many Moods of Ben Vaughan" program July 28th on WXPN in Philly. He identified the artist as Thunder Road and commented little was known about them. The song is on the album "Instro-Hipsters Volume 2026

Yeah Thunder Road was Tony Atkins (Galahad) probably with Gerry Morris
