1It's Gonna Be AlrightSmyle(G. Kooymans) Smyle was a Dutch group, that had a hit in Holland in 1972 with "It's Gonna Be Alright" (Polydor 2050215). The group released 4 singles and no albums, and quit in 1974. Bas Muys, the lead singer of Smyle, also sung many Beatles hits on "Stars On 45" in 1981.
"It's Gonna Be Alright" can be heard on a vinyl album "...One, Two, Three, Four!"(Big Jolly Records JR008).
2Have You Heard the Word ?The Fut(Steve Kipner & Steve Groves) Single released from a Beacon label in 1971 (BEA160). Actually performed by Tin Tin, with their producer Maurice Gibb of The Bee Gees plus Billie Laurie. The song was thought to be performed by John Lennon (or The Beatles) with The Bee Gees, since it was introduced in the book "All Together Now".
John Lennon admired it's a good imitation. But Yoko Ono mistakenly applied for the song's copyright in 1985.
