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.

Notable singles:

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.

    With the dissolution of the first Flo & Eddie Band, Mark and Howard turned their sites to broadcasting. Howard Kaylan explains: “I began broadcasting in the Summer of ’65 at UCLA before the Turtles’ career ever took off. “Later, in the early eighties, Mark and I did a guest shot on KROQ in L.A. and they liked it so much they gave us our own Sunday Night show which was produced by, then program director, Shadoe Stevens. When Shadoe left for a loftier position on KMET, the big alternative station at the time, we went with him.
