  3. Produced and engineered by Robin Cable. On this time Queen waiting for any available studio time to record material in their debut album. Robin Cable worked with this old song and when heared Freddie's voice he engageed him for this project. Brian played on guitar and Roger on percussion on first track and John wasn't present in studio. The group was been called "Larry Lurex & The Voles From Venus". The name was been to allusion (and maybe even tribute to him) to Gary Glitter - big glam rock star on this time - and also propably to David Bowie's "Spiders from Mars". After one year later was released on shortened name "Larry Lurex" on 7" single by EMI on 29th June 1973 in UK (EMI 2030), by Electrola in Germany (EMI 1C 006-94 677, first issue mispressed label "I Can Her Music") and by Anthem Records (AN 204, longer fade out at the end also mono and stereo versions). There's also exist South African pressings. In 2000 released in Freedie's box "The Solo Collection" as a part "The Singles 1973-1985" - source was taken from master tape.
    Unreleased demo versions of both tracks propably will be different than on the single.
