Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of September 20, 1971

Caught my eye:

COUNTRY JOE & THE FISH – Life & Times of… (Vanguard VSD 27/28) (LP) double LP

TONY MOTTOLA – Warm Feelings (Project 3 5058) (LP)

A double album retrospective for CJ & The Fish – more than merely a “Greatest Hits”.  Top drawer “easy listening” from Enoch Light’s “Project 3” label.

Also of interest:

FOUR TOPS – Greatest Hits Vol. 2 (Motown 740)

ARETHA FRANKLIN – Greatest Hits (Atlantic SD 8295)

KOOL & THE GANG – Best Of (De-Lite 2009)

O.S.T. – Soul To Soul (Atlantic SD 7207) Live

It’s soul / r&b time!  Seems a bit early for a Kool & The Gang “GH”, eh readers?

Notable singles:

DAVE & ANSELL COLLINS – Monkey Spanner (Big Tree 125)

LES CRANE – The Desiderata b/w Different Drummer (Warner 7520)

TRAFFIC etc. – Gimme Some Lovin’ (Parts 1 + 2) (U.A. 50841)

GIL SCOTT HERON – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised b/w Home Is Where The Hatred Is (Flying Dutchman 26011)

VAN MORRISON – Wild Night b/w When That Evening Sun Goes Down (Warner 7518)

TEN YEARS AFTER – I’d Love To Change The World (Columbia 4-45457)

Pretty good week for singles – a Dave & Ansell Collins single that isn’t “Double Barrell”!  EZ / M.O.R. from Les Crane.  This must be the Traffic single from “Welcome To The Canteen”.  “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” – well, it won’t be played on the AM radio either, Mr. Scott-Heron.  Excellent singles from both Van Morrison and Ten Years After.
