Leif Garrett [12:55]
a side: "Runaround Sue"
b side: "I Wanna Share a Dream with You"
Atlantic Records 3440 1977
Yup, that's pretty much the sound of 1977 pop culture. Future nostalgia? Dion DiMucci he ain't. Also, Leif, no one wants to hear about your dreams.

Fun fact: this song can be heard in the Corey and Corey classic License to Drive. View at your own peril.

b side: "Don't Want My Love"
Kama Sutra Records KA226 1967
Not much I can tell you about this single except that it's on Kama Sutra Records and songwriting credits are by Sunshine and Poltergeist. I guess that is sayin' something.

Eric Burdon and The Animals [37:21]
a side: "San Franciscan Night"
b side: "Good Times"
MGM Records K13769 1967
Peace and love, peace and love. Till the meth moves in. Not to be confused with The Animals.

You know I love a good monkey song, and the flipside is prime for the karaoke party room!
