Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of July 31, 1972
Caught my eye:
CAPABILITY BROWN – From Scratch (Charisma CAS 1056) (LP/CD)
BEE GEES – To Whom It May Concern (Atco SD 7012) (LP/CD)
Two good ones! I am a huge fan of Capability Brown – formerly known as “Harmony Grass” and after CB known as “Krazy Kat” – this is their excellent debut album, and only recently released on CD in Japan. I believe this was a two-man Bee Gees album.
Also of interest:
FUNK INC. – Chicken Lickin’ (Prestige 10043)
GALLERY – Nice To Be With You (Sussex 7017) (LP)
I found the Gallery album a few years ago and couldn’t put a date to it. I like the name of the Funk Inc. LP!
CHICAGO – Saturday In The Park b/w Alma Mater (Columbia 4-45657)
MICHAEL JACKSON – Ben b/w You Can Cry On My Shoulder (Motown 1207)
JAMES BROWN – Good Foot (Parts 1 and 2) (Polydor 14139)
GERONIMO BLACK – ’59 Chevy b/w Let Us Live (Uni 55539)
VAN MORRISON – Jackie Wilson Said (I’m In Heaven) b/w You’ve Got The Power (Warners 7616)
JOE COCKER – Woman To Woman b/w Midnight Rider (A&M 1370)
KIM FOWLEY – I’m Bad b/w Forbidden Love (Capitol 3403)
Hit single for Chicago. Michael’s solo debut? More R&B from James Brown. Ex-Zappa sidemen make a Geronimo Black single (why wasn’t it “Low Riding Man”?) Nice A-Side for Van Morrison. Probably the last of the Joe Cocker singles in the ‘old’ style. And somebody must’ve had a good laugh – the Kim Fowley single was listed under “Country & Western” titles on the Phonolog release sheet!
