Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of March 20, 1972

Looks like we missed a week somehow!

Caught my eye:

SMITH, PERKINS & SMITH (Island / Capitol SW-9317) (LP)

BERT KAEMPFERT – 6 Plus 6 (Decca DL 75322) (LP)

U.S. band signed directly to Island UK – I really like the single from the Smith, Perkins & Smith album, “Save Me”.  I understand that Wayne Perkins played on the re-recorded Bob Marley records.  German maestro Bert Kaempfert is still EZ.

Also of interest:

THE STRAWBS – Grave New World (A&M SP-4344)

WACKERS – Hot Wacks (Elektra EKS 75025)

LILY TOMLIN – And That’s The Truth (Polydor 24-5023) (LP)

British group Strawbs get yet another US release.  Isn’t The Wackers = Bob Segarini, the Canadian guy?  Comedy LP from TV actress Lily Tomlin – she had been a big success on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” with her ‘Edith Ann’ character – and this is the LP of it.

Notable singles:

BADFINGER – Baby Blue b/w Flying (Apple 1844)

BILL BLACK COMBO – Harlem Nocture b/w Sassy Pants (Mega 0070)

DEEP PURPLE – When A Blind Man Cries b/w Never Before (Warner 7572)

AL KOOPER – Monkey Time (Columbia 4-45566)

Great A-side from Badfinger; The Bill Black Combo moves into the 70’s on Mega (after leaving both Hi and Columbia); A Deep Purple Mk. II “Fireball” single; Al Kooper covers Major Lance (not sure which Al K. LP it’s from).  Also issued this week, but not listed – Polydor pick up about a dozen or more James Brown “King” label 45’s, re-issue time – big time!
