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.
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!
