Gary Glitter on Bell, Part I

Gary Glitter - I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am!), 1973 (Bell 2008 184)
Gary Glitter - Just Fancy That (1973), Bell 2008 184

Another Glam Rock post today. I think many of you will recognize the A side "I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am!), which was a #1 in the UK for Gary Glitter, and a #6 hit in Germany. But the more interesting side here is "Just Fancy That," an Elvis styled mid-tempo piano swinger. I did not listen to this gem until some weeks ago when I dug out hs 45 and it really surprised me. Hope you like it as much as I do. In my opinion, Glitter represents averything about Glam Rock; he's the artist to name when it comes to 1970s soft rock.
