Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of June 12, 1972
Caught my eye:
VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR – Pawn Hearts (Charisma / Buddah CAS 1051) (LP/CD)
URIAH HEEP – Demons & Wizards (Mercury SRM-1-630) (LP)
Two important British tiles get their U.S. issue – they added a track (“Theme One”) to the VDGG LP! (It was released in England during October, 1971). It remains perhaps my favorite VDGG LP in 2012. I really only liked the debut Uriah Heep album, sorry!
Also of interest:
DUST – Hard Attack (Kama Sutra 2059)
THE LAST POETS – Chastisement (Blue Thumb 39)
CHEECH & CHONG – Big Bambu (Ode 70 SP-77014)
FUNKADELIC – America Eats It’s Young (Westbound 2020)
ARGENT – All Together Now (Epic KE-31556)
I didn’t buy any of these…but I noticed all of them.
STRAWBS – Heavy Disguise b/w Benedictus (A&M 1364)
STAN FREBERG – John & Marsha b/w Try (Capitol 3355) re-issue
EMITT RHODES – Tame The Lion b/w Golden Child of God (Dunhill 7315)
APOLLO 100 – Telstar b/w Minuet For A Funky Lady (Mega 0080)
MICKEY DOLENZ – Lover’s Prayer b/w Unattended In The Dungeon (MGM K-14395)
Strawbs tries again; Mr. Freberg gets a re-issue; pop prince Emitt Rhodes continues; Apollo 100 cover Joe Meek; Post-Monkees Mickey Dolenz 45, with an odd B-Side title.
