Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of October 16, 1972

Caught my eye:

LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III – Album 3 (Columbia KC-31462) (LP/CD)

SANTANA – Caravanserai (Columbia KC-31610) (LP)

CAT STEVENS – Catch Bull At Four (A&M SP-4365) (LP/CD)

LW3 goes from Atlantic to Columbia.  Santana deliver another winner.  Cat Stevens is probably more popular in the U.S. than in England by the time of this LP.

Also of interest:

JOHN MAYALL – Moving On (Polydor 24-5036)

JEAN LUC PONTY – Sunday Walk (MPS 20645)

MILES DAVIS – On The Corner (Columbia KC-31906)

I was still noticing this stuff – but I wasn’t buying any of these titles.  Too many Mayall LP’s to count.  The 2nd or 3rd U.S. J-LP LP?  Miles gets a cartoon cover.

Notable singles:

CAPABILITY BROWN – Liar (Charisma CAS 101)

SUE THOMPSON – Candy & Roses b/w Full Time Job (Hickory 1652)

PROCOL HARUM – A Whiter Shade of Pale b/w Lime Street Blues (A&M 1389)

AMERICA – Ventura Highway b/w Saturn Nights (Warner 7641)

BLACK SABBATH – Tomorrow’s Dream (Warner 7625)

TOWER OF POWER – Down To The Nightclub (Warner 7635)

Capability Brown gets the debut U.S. Charisma label 45!  Sue Thompson still in the original Hickory label numbering series – when does it end?  A&M license “Whiter Shade of Pale” from Deram, at the time of the PH G.H. LP.  Hit single for America.  Is this Sabbath 45 from “Vol. 4”?  Dandy R&B for T.O.P.  Bump de bump de bump!

= = =

I hope you have enjoyed reading my “Time Machine” series for the last couple of years.  Hopefully, Strange Days magazine will keep running it’s “Time Machine” series.

Alas, this is where my stash of Phonolog New Release sheets stops, in 1972.  I do hope you enjoyed both this (1972) and all the 1971 Phonolog blog entries.

I wonder why the Phonologs stop abruptly in 1972?  Can’t ask my brother anymore – and he’s who would know why.  Thanks for everything, James B. Kane (1948 – 2011).
