Caught my eye:
BONZO DOG BAND – The Beast Of The Bonzoes (U.A. UAS-5517)
SOFT MACHINE – Fourth (
McGUINNESS-FLINT – Happy Birthday Ruthie Baby (Capitol ST-794)
AL KOOPER –
A Bonzo best of, presumably after they broke up (?); the final Soft Machine with Mr. Wyatt (?); Ex-Manfred Mann men in McGuinness-Flint (great single of the same name); Al Kooper’s solo career continues.
Also of interest:

FREE – I’ll Be Creepin’ b/w Mr. Big (A&M 1266)
VELVET UNDERGROUND – Oh Sweet Nuthin’ b/w Who Loves The Sun (Cotillion 44107)
A good Deep Purple single; decent AM radio hit with FMEB “Signs”; A Free single that isn’t “All Right Now”; the final vinyl 45 for VU?
