Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of June 7, 1971
Caught my eye:
CONGRESS OF WONDERS – Revolting (Fantasy 7016) (LP) – not on CD?
PERSUASIONS – We Came To Play (Capitol ST-791)
Congress of Wonders is a wonderful S.F. Bay Area comedy LP that I used to hear on KPFK-FM. “Radio Phil” is one of my all-time favorite five minutes of US vinyl comedy. The Persuasions are an acapella group.
Also of interest:
TUCKY BUZZARD (Capitol ST-787)
HEAD OVER HEELS (Capitol ST-797)
KEEF HARTLEY – Overdog (Deram DES-18057)
Records I used to see in every 99 cent bin; Keef Hartley was John Mayall’s drummer.
JOHN KONGOS – He’s Gonna Step On You Again Parts 1 & 2 (Elektra 45729)
JEAN KNIGHT – Mr. Big Stuff (Stax 0088)
EMITT RHODES – Lullabye b/w With My Face On The Floor (Dunhill 4280)
JAMES TAYLOR – You’ve Got A Friend b/w You Can Close Your Eyes (Warner 7498)
UNDISPUTED TRUTH – Smiling Faces Sometimes (Gordy 7108)
Big time R&B hits from Jean Knight and Undisputed Truth; South African John Kongos from his debut Elektra album – an odd sounding single; EZ hits from Emitt Rhodes and James Taylor. My favorite Undisputed Truth single!
