Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of June 5, 1972
Caught my eye:
KIM FOWLEY – I’m Bad (Capitol ST-11075) (LP)
DOUG & RUSTY KERSHAW – Genus Cambarus (Hickory 163) (2LP)
KOSSOFF / KIRKE / TETSU / RABBIT (Island/Capitol SMAS-9320) (CD)
PINK FLOYD – Obscured By Clouds (Harvest / Capitol ST-11078) (LP/CD)
HENRY WOLFF & NANCY HENNINGS – Tibetan Bells (Island / Capitol SMAS-9319) (LP)
Big week! Kim Fowley storms into the 70’s; Doug & Rusty get re-issued; members of Free team up with Tetsu; Pink Floyd issue a very good soundtrack to an iffy movie; the birth of ‘new age’ music from Wolff & Hennings.
Also of interest:
EAGLES – self-titled (Asylum SD 5054)
MIKE D’ABO – Down At Rachael’s Place (A&M SP-4346) (LP)
MARK MOOGY KLINGMAN – Moogy (Capitol ST-11072)
DAVID BOWIE – Ziggy Stardust (RCA LSP-4702) (LP/SA-CD)
HARVEY MANDEL – The Snake (Janus 3037)
Set your clocks – the Eagles start here; Mike D’Abo is ex-Manfred Mann; Moogy didn’t want any misunderstanding as to what kind of music you were going to be getting; Bowie gets glam chops; Harvey Mandel soldiers on – with a pretty good LP!
HARRY NILSSON – Coconut b/w Down (RCA 74-0718)
T. REX – Metal Guru b/w Lady (Reprise 1095)
PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS – Mary Had A Little Lamb b/w Little Woman Love (Apple 1851)
FLEETWOOD MAC – Sentimental Lady b/w Sunny Side of Heaven (Reprise 1093)
DAVID BOWIE – Starman b/w Suffragette City (RCA 74-0719)
Good Nilsson 45; 45 from “The Slider” for Marc Bolan; probably Paul’s weakest Wings 45; Bob Welch song for F. Mac (which he later re-recorded as a solo artist); Glam rock Bowie hits the streets in the U.S.A.!
