Time Machine 1972

Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of August 21, 1972

I don’t know what happened to the rest of August’s Time Machines!

Caught my eye:

NATIONAL LAMPOON – Radio Dinner (Blue Thumb BTS-38) (LP)

T. REX – The Slider (Reprise 2095) (LP/CD)

Great National Lampoon comedy album – why isn’t it on CD in ’12?  And a fine hit album for Marc Bolan &Co.

Also of interest:

O’JAYS – Backstabbers (Philadelphia Int’l KZ-31712)

C.C.S. (Rak KZ-31569) (LP)

DOUG “COSMO” CLIFFORD (Fantasy 9411)

R&B hit for the O’Jays.  Instrumental album for CCS (on RAK U.S. no less).  And the drummer of Creedence Clearwater Revival gets a solo album – what is it?  All drum solos?

Notable singles:

ROD STEWART – Maggie May b/w (I Know) I’m Losing You (Mercury 30157)

JOHN CALE – Days of Steam b/w Legs Larry at Television Centre (Reprise 1108)

STEAM – Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye b/w Don’t Stop Loving Me (Mercury 30160) re-issue

BUDDY MILES – Them Changes (Mercury 30158) re-issue

EMERSON LAKE & PALMER – From The Beginning (Cotillion 44158)

BILL WITHERS – Use Me (Sussex 241)

Healthy singles week – numbers for the Mercury singles are consecutive (what was 30159?), so – perhaps back-to-back hits?  John Cale single from “The Academy in Peril”.  My favorite Bill Withers single (still on an indie label!).  I think EL&P had pretty much lost me by the time of this single.  I had moved on to something / somewhere else.
