With regards the songs Caterpillar and What's going on, yes they were released in Belgium and as far as I know in a few other European countries at the time. This was done through Kris Kritzinger. I think its wonderful that those songs from 'way back when' are maybe still around?? Never received royalties, but then, that comes with the territory!
