Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of July 3, 1972

Caught my eye:

HABIBIYYA – If Man But Knew (Island / Capitol SMAS-9305) (LP)

LEON RUSSELL – Carney (Shelter / Capitol SW-8911) (LP/CD)

REBOP KWAKU BAAH – Re-Bop (Island / Capitol SW-9304) (LP)

Even by 1972, I was already an Island label snob – the only reason I checked out either of these two Island titles.  And easily my favorite Leon Russell album.  Easily.  Bought it the day it came out, loved it to death.  I still play “Out In the Woods” all the time.

Also of interest:

THE BAND – Rock of Ages (Capitol SABB-11045) double LP

JAMES BROWN – There It Is (Polydor 24-5028)

SIMON & GARFUNKEL – Greatest Hits (Columbia KC-31350) (LP)

CARLOS SANTANA & BUDDY MILES – Live (Columbia KC-31350) (LP)

Double live album from The Band.  R&B from James Brown.  Best of from S&G.  Live album from Carlos & Buddy.

Notable singles:

BIG BROTHER / JANIS JOPLIN – Down On Me b/w Bye Bye Baby (Columbia 4-45630) re-issue

AUDIENCE – Standing By The Door (Elektra 45788)

LINDISFARNE – Lady Eleanor b/w Down (Elektra 45799)

NORMAN HURRICANE SMITH – Oh Babe, What Would You Say? b/w Getting To Know You (Capitol 3383)

BILLY EDD WHEELER – 200 Lbs. O’ Slingin’ Hound (RCA 74-0739)

TOWER OF POWER – You’re Still A Young Man b/w Skating On Thin Ice (Warner Brothers 7612)

Columbia re-issues a ’66 Mainstream label single for Janis.  Audience and Lindisfarne were both licensed from Charisma Records, England.  Nice hit single for Norman Smith.  Billy Edd Wheeler, still in his pre-Kenny Rogers days.  Nice R&B hit for T.O.P.
