Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of November 15, 1971

Caught my eye:

CHICAGO – Live At Carnegie Hall (Columbia C4X-30865) 4 LP boxed set (LP)

HARRY NILSSON – Nilsson Schmilsson (RCA LSP-4515) (LP/CD)

SEALS & CROFTS – Year Of Sunday (Warner 2568)

SLY & THE FAMILY STONE – There’s A Riot Goin’ On (Epic KE-30986)

TRAFFIC – The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys (Island/Capitol SW-9306) (LP/CD)

Gearing up for Xmas ’71!  Big, bad boxed set for Chicago; decent Harry Nilsson album; I heard the Seals & Crofts in the hippie record store, and liked “When I Meet Them”; always intrigued by Sly & The Family Stone (I had loved “Stand!”); a die-cut cover for the Island / Capitol debut LP for Traffic – dang, I loved this album!!!

Also of interest:

DAVID AXELROD – Messiah (RCA LSP-4636)

DAVID BOWIE – Hunky Dory (RCA LSP-4623) (LP/CD)

FIVE MAN ELECTRICAL BAND – Coming Of Age (Lionel 1101)

ANDRE KOSTELANETZ – Plays Chicago (Columbia C-31002) (LP)

Never heard any of these (at the time), except for the Andrew Kostelantez.  The Bowie is, of course, a classic.  Does the F.M.E.B. have a “Greatest Hits” LP I could try?  I really only know Axelrod from his Capitol albums and the Mo’ Wax CD from earlier this century.

Notable singles:

PORTER WAGONER – Rubber Room b/w Late Love Of Mine (RCA 74-0581)

SEALS & CROFTS – When I Meet Them b/w Irish Linen (Warner 7536)

JOHN SEBASTIAN – We’ll See b/w Well Well Well (Reprise 1050)

JETHRO TULL – Locomotive Breath b/w Up To Me (Reprise 1054)

THE DOORS – Tightrope Ride (Elektra 45757)

THREE DOG NIGHT – Old Fashioned Love Song b/w Jam (Dunhill 4294)

DANDO SHAFT – Coming Home To Me b/w Kalyope Driver (Neon 72-0100)

Nice novelty C&W from Porter W.; that good Seals & Crofts A-side; a John Sebastian single I never heard at the time; an “Aqualung” single for Jethro Tull; Non-‘Jim’ Doors 45, which really isn’t too bad, c’mon!;  Big hit for T.D.N.; the U.S. debut 45 on the Neon label!  (No, never seen it, and I don’t even remember what they sounded like!).
