Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of April 17, 1972
Caught my eye:
PROCOL HARUM – Live (With The Edmunton Symphony Orchestra) (A&M SP-4335) (LP/CD)
Only one cool title this week, but it’s a good one. Procol Harum with an orchestra, in Canada. And an actual trip up the charts for the lads.
Also of interest:
JOAN BAEZ – Come From The Shadows (A&M SP-4339) (LP)
WEATHER REPORT – I Sing The Body Electric (Columbia KC-31352)
PETER MATZ – Quadraphonic Spectacular (Columbia CQ-31247)
Joan soldiers on after leaving Vanguard. Jazz rock from Weather Report – it even had a cool LP cover! And Quad “EZ” goodness from the late Peter Matz. I wonder if they made a stereo copy of this “Quadraphonic” title?
PROCOL HARUM – Conquistador b/w A Salty Dog (A&M AM-1347) both sides live versions
SPIRIT – Cadillac Cowboys b/w Darkness (Epic 5-10849)
JIMI HENDRIX – Johnny B. Goode b/w Lover Man (Reprise 1082)
MOODY BLUES – Isn’t Life Strange (Threshold 67009)
TOM JONES – Young New Mexican Puppeteer (Parrot 40070)
A hit single for Procol Harum! In the U.K., they were treated to a non-LP B-Side, a live version of “Luskus Delph”! More Spirit. Another posthumous Jimi Hendrix single. A “Seventh Sojourn” single for the Moody Blues (what was the B-side? I only have a promo 45 with the same thing on both sides). An EZ hit for Tom Jones, still rakin’ in the ladies.
