Tears –Stranger in Town/Ollie

Tears –Stranger in Town/Ollie –Gazell C286 (1974 Sweden)

Great double-sider culled from the first Tears LP. Ollie has the essence of 1972 Sweet but put through a Crunching Glam blender, while Stranger in Town is a tad more sophisticated but still packs a mighty wallop. Although there were primarily known to have released 3 LPs (the first 2 are essential purchases), it is now becoming apparent that more singles were released at the time. Now, I still haven’t seen proof that the influential God Save The 45 was released as a single…still waiting and hoping for confirmation on that.

Or perhaps tradition and plants roots are on your verge
of getting extinct. His singing virtually disappeared until just after World war two.

What a great single. Sadly it doesn't appear to be available for purchase anywhere online.
