My dear friends:

I have 3 audios of this "pre queen" band. The names of this songs are:

Appointment
She was once my friend
I need time

Are this the only ones that exist?

Salutes to everyone
Sebas

"Yours Sencirely" was one
And "Sugar Lump Friend"...
Also "I Need Time" on the begining used to be called "Give Me Time"...

Well, John S Stuart's articles in Record Collector were really good! ;)
And it wasn't really a pre-Queen band- Brian was a GUEST on those sessions, not a member of a band...
