SUNFIGHTER - Drag Race Queen

SUNFIGHTER - Drag Race Queen / Riding On Your Star (EMI 1976)

A brilliant song from pop British outfit Sunfighter, who were active from 1975 to 1978 and released three singles. The line-up featured Rob Boughton and John Hardman on guitar and vocals, Jeb Milne and Rikki Peebles on vocals and later Melvyn Smith. "Drag Race Queen" was their first single and was produced by Roy Thomas Baker, which explains the Queen vibe.

GURU'S - Country Boy Blues

GURU'S - Meditation Mama / Country Boy Blues (Philips 1971)
A crude and rough glam rocker with some cool guitar sounds from another obscure British outfit. "Country Boy Blues" was penned by Hogback And Pig, which is the name of another British band who released a couple of singles in the same year and who are probably behind this single too. UK issue.
