Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of July 24, 1972
Caught my eye:
GARY OWENS – Put Your Head On My Finger (Pride 0002) (LP)
CHICAGO – Chicago V (Columbia KC-31102) (LP)
VAN MORRISON – St. Dominic’s Preview (Warner Brothers 2633)
GENTLE GIANT – Three Friends (Columbia KC-31649) (LP)
Insane comedy LP from L.A. D.J. Gary Owens (KMPC-AM), just wonderful! The first Chicago album to not be a multiple disc set! Decent Van Morrison album. New label for Vertigo act Gentle Giant.
Also of interest:
MILES DAVIS – Live Evil (Columbia CQ-30954) QUAD double LP
GRANDPA JONES – Live (Harmony H-31396) (LP)
JUDAS JUMP – Scorch (Pride 0003)
DONNY OSMOND – Too Young (MGM SE-4854)
Miles in Quad! Is this the one with Hermeto Pascoal? I think this Grandpa Jones LP is a straight re-issue of a Monument title (with less songs?). Judas Jump – same label as Gary Owens – isn’t this British? Teen fodder from young Donny Osmond.
BLOODROCK – D.O.A. (Capitol 3399)
BREAD – Guitar Man (Elektra 45803)
SLADE – Take Me Back ‘Ome (Polydor 15046)
MELTON, LEVY & THE DEY BROTHERS – Play Little Children b/w S.O.S. (Columbia 4-45650)
BEE GEES – Run To Me b/w Road To Alaska (Atco 6896)
Heavy stuff from Arizona’s Bloodrock, maaan; dandy A-side from Bread; real ’72 UK Glam Rock from Slade; Melton is of course Barry Melton, the guitarist from Country Joe & The Fish; OK minor hit for the Brothers Gibb (R.I.P. Robin & Maurice Gibb).
