Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Week of September 18, 1972
Caught my eye:
ED SANDERS – Beer Cans On The Moon (Reprise 2105) (LP/CD)
FIFTH DIMENSION – Greatest Hits On Earth (Bell 1106) (LP)
FLOYD CRAMER – Class of ’72 (RCA LSP-4773) (LP)
PATRICK SKY – Songs That Made America Famous (Adelphi 1400) (LP)
PENTANGLE – Solomon’s Seal (Reprise 2100)
2nd Reprise solo album from the main man of The Fugs. Seemed about time for a Fifth Dimension “Best of” collection. This is the 8th Floyd Cramer “Class of” set. I heard the Patrick Sky LP on the radio, somewhat unbelievably. I had really liked Pentangle’s “Sweet Child” album, a few years back – turned on to them by a Warner / Reprise sampler LP set.
Also of interest:
CACTUS – ‘Ot & Sweaty (Atco SD 7011)
QUIVER – Gone In The Morning (Warners 2630)
THE KINKS – Everybody’s In Showbiz (RCA VPS-6065) (double LP)
MICKEY HART – Rolling Thunder (Warners 2635) (CD)
WOLFMAN JACK (Wooden Nickel 1009)
I heard the Mickey Hart on the FM radio – I mis-identified it as Roger Daltrey for years. 2nd Quiver album. The rest I haven’t heard! Wolfman Jack = Jack West, genius radio announcer talent who also worked with Y.M.O. – much later on in 1979/80.
HARRY NILSSON – Spaceman b/w Turn On Your Radio (RCA B74-078)
THE DOORS – The Mosquito b/w It Slipped My Mind (Elektra EK-45807)
Good 45 for Mr. Nilsson. Jim-less Doors 45 – their final Elektra 45?
