Larry Bright also appears on a few instrumental tracks of the Del-Fi album "Hollywood Drag" (DFLP-1244, 1963) by The Darts, including "Street Machine" and "Gaucho" which were also written by him. The latter was originally issued as "Cornball" by The Humdingers.

In addition, there's a 45rpm release 'Ho-Ho Laughing Monster' issued on Liza 1962 as by Peter Roberts in 1962. It's not known if it has anything to do with Larry Bright.
