THE ZOO - '(Standing On) The Sunset Strip' / 'One Night Man' (Sunburst 775) Dec 1968
This band released an album titled 'Present Chocolate Moose' on Ed Cobb's Sunburst Record label in '68 but both sides of this 45 were not part of it. Also when Big Beat re-issued the album on CD in the early 90s they failed to include the single sides. Not sure why?
'(Standing On) The Sunset Strip' was written and produced by Mars Bonfire and Morgan Cavett.
Mars Bonfire is perhaps best known for writing 'Born To Be Wild' recorded by and a huge success for Steppenwolf. Indeed, Morgan Cavett also has links with Steppenwolf co-writing some songs with singer John Kay.
'One Night Man' is a Morgan Cavett song.
Both songs are late 60s psych rock productions with searing guitar on both cuts.
