Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of June 26, 1972

Caught my eye:

JOHN LENNON & YOKO ONO – Sometime In New York City (Apple SVBB-3392) double LP (LP/CD)

ALICE COOPER – School’s Out (Warner Brothers 3623) (LP/CD)

Double LP for John & Yoko – that featured Frank Zappa!  Not anybody’s favorite Lennon LP, however.  And a hit for former Zappa-proteges Alice Cooper (LP came with a ‘gimmicks’ package initially, incl. panties!).

Also of interest:

P.F. SLOAN – Raised On Records (Columbia / Mums KZ-31260)

IKE & TINA TURNER – Feel Good (United Artists UAS 5598)

Singer / songwriter stuff for P.F. Sloan; R&B toughness for Ike & Tina.

Notable singles:

SEALS & CROFTS – Summer Breeze b/w East of Ginger Trees (Warner Brothers 7606)

PARRISH & GURVITZ – I’ve Got Time b/w Janine (Decca 32969)

THE DOORS – Get Up and Dance (Elektra 45793)

SPARKS – Mr. Nice Guys (No More) b/w Wonder Girl (Bearsville 006)

NEIL YOUNG / GRAHAM NASH – War Song b/w The Needle and The Damage Done (Reprise 1099)

A hit for Seals & Crofts; British Parrish & Gurvitz get a US single – not sure which was the A-side (but I’ve listed my favorite first); Post-‘Jim’ Doors 45; certainly one of the first Sparks 45’s!; Non-LP A-side for Neil Young / Graham Nash!

    Leave it to JPN to finally make the panties available again! [Size -2?] I’ll bet the kami folds up into a desk.
