Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of February 28, 1972
Caught my eye:
JIMI HENDRIX – In The West (Reprise 2049) (LP)
BILL BALANCE & THE FEMININE FORUM (Mark 56 578) (LP) picture disc (pictured!)
LINDISFARNE – Fog On The Tyne (Elektra EKS 75021) (LP/CD)
JOJO GUNNE (Asylum SD 5053) (LP/CD)
ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA – No Answer (U.A. UAS-5573) (LP/CD)
The posthumous Hendrix live LP’s just keep on comin’. L.A. radio comedy from DJ Bill Balance. 2nd U.S. LP from Alan Hull & Co. (Lindisfarne), as licensed from Charisma Records, England. Ex-Spirit guys Jo Jo Gunne make a Southern California ‘classic’ – with singles like “Run Run Run” and “Shake That Fat”. The Move quickly become E.L.O.
Also of interest:
THE GUESS WHO – Rockin’ (RCA LSP-4602)
ALLMAN BROTHERS – Eat A Peach (Capricorn 0102) double LP (SA-CD)
FANNY – Fanny Hill (Reprise 2058) (LP)
HARRY CHAPIN – Heads & Tales (Elektra EKS 75023)
JACKIE LOMAX – Three (Warner 2591) (LP/CD)
The Guess Who soldier on. Southern-fried jam band rock from the Allmans. More feminist rock from Fanny. Singer / Songwriter nirvana from Harry Chapin (LP has a die-cut cover, and the single is 6+ minutes long). Liverpool’s finest (Jackie Lomax) gives Warner Brothers their 2nd album.
JOAN BAEZ – Silent Running b/w Rejoice In The Sun (Decca 32890)
DON BOWMAN – Hello D.J. (2 parts) (Mega 0062)
HARRY CHAPIN – Taxi (Elektra EK-45770)
JAMES BROWN – King Heroin b/w Theme from King Heroin (Polydor 14116)
Joan Baez has an O.S.T. A-side; C&W comedy from RCA veteran Don Bowman – a funny record! The single from “Heads & Tales” by Harry Chapin. James Brown continues to give Polydor singles that the radio won’t exactly flog.
