Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of July 17, 1972
Caught my eye:
CAPTAIN BEYOND – self-titled debut (Capricorn 0105) (LP / CD)
EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Trilogy (Cotillion SD 9903) (LP / CD)
MARK VOLMAN & HOWARD KAYLAN – The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie (Reprise 2099) (LP / CD)
Great hard rock from Captain Beyond – with a 3-D cover, even! Third (or fourth) album from EL&P (depends on how you count “Pictures At An Exhibition”). Post-Zappa Flo & Eddie (nice pop music).
Also of interest:
JOHN RENBOURNE – Faro Annie (Reprise 2082)
KOOL & THE GANG – Music Is The Message (Delite 2011)
SWAMP DOGG – Cuffed, Collared & Tagged (Cream 9009)
British acoustic guitarist John Renbourne gets yet another US release. R&B from Kool & The Gang and incomprehensible ‘soul music’ from Swamp Dogg.
THE ROLLING STONES – Happy b/w All Down The Line (Rolling Stones 19104)
THE WHO – Join Together b/w Baby, Don’t You do It (Decca 32983) (45)
CHI COLTRANE – Thunder & Lightning b/w Time To Come In (Columbia 4-45640)
CHUCK BERRY – My Ding-A-Ling (Chess 2131)
GARY GLITTER – Rock & Roll Part 2 (Bell 45237) (45)
WAYNE COCHRAN – Long Long Day b/w Sleepless Nights (Epic 5-10893) (45)
Single from “Exile On Main Street” for the Stones (a different version than found on the LP!); Non-LP single for The Who; Chi Coltrane – was that really her name? Re-service for Chuck Berry (and it’s a live version, as I recall); bona-fide glam rock from Gary Glitter; 2nd single from Wayne Cochran & Co., from their self-titled sole Epic LP.
I WAS BECOMING SO VERY AWARE OF RECORD RELEASES IN 1972!!!
