Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of January 10, 1972
So, 1972 doesn’t exactly start off with a Bang…but it’s not without merit…
Caught my eye:
MILES DAVIS – Bitches Brew (Columbia GQ-30997) double LP, QUAD issue
ANNETTE PEACOCK – I’m The One (RCA LSP-4578) (LP)
IAN MATTHEWS – Tigers Will Survive (Vertigo VEL-1010) (LP/CD)
DON GIBSON – Country Green (Hickory LPS-160) (LP)
Miles’ most disorienting record to date – now available in 4-channel SQ Quad! Never knew about Annette Peacock at the time, but…I would by ’76 or so. I had purchased and loved Ian Matthews’ “If You Saw Thro My Eyes”, so I was all ready for “Tigers Will Survive” – it had even more Richard Farina songs on it! And we’re near the end of the original “indie” Hickory label (I think we will see the end of it when it gets sold to MGM this year).
Also of interest:
BLUE OYSTER CULT (Columbia C-31063)
PATTO – Hold Your Fire (Vertigo VEL-1008)
PAUL SIMON (Columbia KC-30750) (LP)
NANCY SINATRA & LEE HAZLEWOOD – Nancy & Lee Again (RCA LSP-4645)
The Paul Simon LP is the star here – his first post-S&G solo album. Patto’s 2nd US release on Vertigo. The debut from hard rockers B.O.C. – and Nancy & Lee try to re-kindle the magic that was previous found on Reprise records for RCA.
KOOL & THE GANG – N.T. (Parts 1 & 2) (De-Lite 544)
MYLON LeFEVRE – Mountain Home b/w Why You Been Gone So Long (Columbia 4-45532)
THE ARCHIES – Hold On To Lovin’ b/w Love Is Living In You (Kirshner 63-5018
FLOYD CRAMER – Corn Crib Symphony b/w Your Last Goodbye (RCA 74-0626)
What acronym can this Kool & The Gang single be? Nice Tits?! We’ll all hear about Mylon LeFevre in a short while once he makes an album with Ten Years After’s Alvin Lee. Who knew The Archies were in the status of ongoing concern in 1972? Not me! And I bet this is a dandy instrumental C&W single from Mr. Floyd Cramer.
