Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Caught my eye:
VARIOUS ARTISTS – Motown Chartbusters Vol. 4 (Motown 732)
Not much in the way of major LP releases this week. I have other volumes in the Motown Chartbusters series – but not this one. I bet it’s pretty good.
Also of interest:
HERB ALPERT & THE
MARVIN GAYE – What’s Going On (Tamla 310)
THE RAIDERS – Indian Reservation (
SKILLET & LEROY – Dynamite (Laff 151)
My parents had given up on Herb Alpert by this time – the TJB time had passed. Notable soul release from Marvin Gaye; social conscience material from The Raiders and smutty humor from Skillet & Leroy (so that’s when this came out!)
BEE GEES – How Can You Men A Broken Heart? (Atco 6824)
BOB DYLAN – Watching The River Flow b/w Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (
IAN MATTHEWS – Hearts b/w If You Saw Thro’ My Eyes (Vertigo 101)
TOMMY NORTHCOTT – Suzanne b/w Spaceship Races (Uni 5288)
ROLLING STONES – Wild Horses b/w Sway (Rolling Stones 19101)
Decent AM radio hits from the Bee Gees, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones (a “Sticky Fingers” 45!). I liked the Ian Matthews LP (and this is the debut US Vertigo 45!), and I remember when Tommy Northcott was signed to Warner Brothers, making ‘soft rock’ – this must be a cover of the Leonard Cohen song!
