They were one of most famous GS; many Japanese remember their debut song "Want You See Again(Kimi ni Aitai)".
They sung some moody hit songs and wrote cool punk ballads like "My Dawn"
On the other hand, they were compared to Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.
Jaguars covered "Zabadak", "Legend of Xanadu".
This Japanese cover version of Xanadu was a #20 hit.
Actually, it was the flip side of another moody song.
The lead singer Sin Okamoto attracted teen girls with his good looks and singing with whip like Dave Dee.
Also they covered the fab "Tobacco Road" which is on the "Big Lizard Stomp" compilation, which was a psychedelic version, much like the Blues Magoos, "Blue Feeling" (Slitherama), "See See Rider" (Banzai Freak Beat).They appeared in their own movie "Jaguars Tekizen Jyouriku" in '68, a cool comedy which was influenced by the Beatles' "Help!".
