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!

Notable singles:

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!

Today is the 10th anniversary of my first blog!
