Satan's Holiday!

Earthquake c/w Satan's Holiday (1965), a US-only release on Titan as by The Lancasters, was actually a one-off guitar instrumental produced in London by the indomitable Kim Fowley and featured guitar pyrotechnics by a young and impecunious Ritchie Blackmore.
"Satan's Holiday" is a fine, menacing tune, with part of the songwriting credit going to James Phelge, the Rolling Stones' friend honored by half of the Nanker-Phelge pseudonym the Stones used on early group compositions !
PS: Of course, the melody is taken from Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt (In the hall of the mountain king)

Hi! I tried to download the 2 songs by The Lancasters (I had been lookin' for them for a loooong time) but I'm not able to do it 'cause it seems that the number of downloads has been exceeded.
Is there anyway I can get them?
Thanx so much ;-)
