Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of June 28, 1971
Caught my eye:
MICK ABRAHMS – self-titled (A&M SP-4312) (LP)
CARAVAN – In The Land Of Grey and Pink (London PS-593) (LP/CD)
EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Tarkus (Cotillion SD 9000) (LP/CD)
ENVIRONMENTS – Vol. 3 (Dawn & Dusk at New Hope, PA) (Atlantic / Syntonic SD 66003) (LP)
STEPHEN STILLS – 2 (Atlantic SD 7206) (LP)
Good week for progressive rock! Solo LP from the former Jethro Tull guitarist. The 3rd Caravan LP, a great one. The 2nd EL&P LP, and one that I liked very much, right from the beginning (I first had it as an 8-track tape!). Who knew how many Environments LP’s there were going to be? (I think there are only 11 or 12 of them). I like the Stephen Stills LP better now than I did in 1971!
Also of interest:
THE ASSOCIATION – Stop Your Motor (Warner WS 1927)
POLLUTION – self-titled (Prophesy 6051)
PAUL STOOKEY – Paul And (Warner WS 1912) (LP)
STRAWBS – From The Witchwood (A&M SP-4304)
The last WB Association LP? The Pollution LP is the one with the famous cover of a chick in a gas mask – I never heard it. Paul Stookey is of course the Paul of Peter, Paul & Mary. The Strawbs LP is with Rick Wakeman, before he joined Yes.
AUDIENCE – Indian Summer b/w It Brings A Tear (Elektra 45732)
GINGER BAKER DRUM CHOIR – Atunde (We Are Here)(2 Parts) (Atco 6816)
LONG JOHN BALDRY – Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie… (Warner 7506)
CHICAGO – Colour My World b/w Beginnings (Columbia 4-45417)
THE DOORS – Riders On The Storm b/w Changeling (Elektra 45738)
JACKIE LOMAX – Higher Ground b/w Helluva Woman (Warner 7503)
THREE DOG NIGHT – Liar b/w Can’t Get Enough Of It (Dunhill 4282)
The Audience single is licensed from Charisma Records, England. Never saw the Ginger Baker 45 (2nd album?). Radio hits from TDN and The Doors (Morrison was to pass away two weeks later). Likely the debut US WB Jackie Lomax 45.
