We had the single version and as far as I can remember (and I've spent a lot of time working on it!), these were the songs on it, not in correct order. Still not the same as any listed here. I remember that we got it as a free give-away (with a real goldfish!) when a new drug store opened up.

I just picked the LP up from my Mother and heard it again for the first time in about 33 years my 1975 version of Goofy Greats. I was glad to find some links so thanks for those! My LP is scratched so badly since I fear playing it on my nice turntable, it was played hard for many many years. The other versions of this album with other tracks makes me want to get the other songs!
