Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of April 19, 1971

Caught my eye:

JOHN MAYALL – Back To The Roots (Polydor 25-3002 2 x LP) (LP/CD)

THE DOORS – L.A. Woman (Elektra EKS-75011) (LP/CD)

EGG – The Polite Force (Deram DES-18056) (CD)

LEON RUSSELL – Leon Russell & The Shelter People (Shelter SW-8903) (LP/CD)

Got The Doors right away – with the window pane cover – I loved this album to death!; it didn’t take long to find an inexpensive promo of the 2nd Egg album (I also had the first Egg album!); Mayall’s “Back To The Roots” was an inexpensive double album with a very large booklet; Leon Russell was very famous – having worked with Joe Cocker, this was his 2nd ‘solo’ album (also released in England on A&M Records!).

Also of interest:


HAMPTON GREASE BAND – Music To Eat (Columbia G-30555 2 x LP) (CD)

BILL BLACK COMBO – More Bill Black Magic (Hi SHL-32061) (LP)

CHASE (Epic E-30472) “Get It On In The Morning”


2nd album by Johnny Winter’s brother?; I realized years later that the Hampton Grease Band featured ace guitarist Glenn Phillips (this double LP was cheap!); I collect the Bill Black Combo; You heard the Chase single on the radio a lot; I heard something from “A Child’s Garden of Grass” on the FM radio – I liked comedy albums a lot back then.

Notable singles:

HAMILTON, JOE FRANKLIN & REYNOLDS – Don’t Pull Your Love Out On Me / Funk-In-Wagnal (Dunhill 4276)

RONNIE SPECTOR – Try Some, Buy Some / Tandoori Chicken (Apple 1832)

JOHNNY WINTER – Jumpin’ Jack Flash / Good Morning Little Schoolgirl (Columbia 4-45368)

YVONNE ELLIMAN – I Don’t Know How To Love Him / Overture (Decca 32785)

Ronnie Spector for the Apple label collectors; Yvonne Elliman had the 2nd single from the original UK version of “Jesus Christ Superstar” in the US (first single was “Superstar” sung by Murray Head); 2 cover versions for this Johnny Winter single – is it ‘live’?; to this very day, you can hear “Don’t Pull Your Love Out On Me” on ‘Oldies’  radio – even if you don’t want to!

Time Machine 1971 returns on 5/9/11!
