Phonolog Reports – New Releases
Caught my eye:
JUDY COLLINS – Best Of (Elektra EKS-75030)
WALTER CARLOS – A Clockwork
ELTON JOHN – Honky Chateau (Uni 93135) (LP) (CD)
AUDIENCE – Lunch (Elektra EKS-75026) (LP) (CD)
Nice Best of for Judy Collins. Always did like her “Both Sides Now”. Not the soundtrack, but more synth music from “A Clockwork Orange” by Wendy Carlos. Decent studio album for Elton John – it sounds great, I just listened to the CD of it recently. The final Audience album (#4).
Also of interest:
SAILCAT – Motorcycle Mama (Elektra EKS-75029) (LP)
STEPPENWOLF – Rest In Peace (Dunhill DSX-50124)
ERNEST TUBB – Say Something Nice To Sarah (Decca DL 75345)
Novelty album for Sailcat (yes, the 45 was released this week too). The final Steppenwolf album. E.T. must’ve been signed to Decca / MCA for decades by the time this chestnut came along. He was alive (and signed to Decca / MCA almost until he passed away!).
FLASH – Small Beginnings b/w Morning Haze (Capitol 3345)
ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA – 10538 Overture b/w
DEEP PURPLE – Lazy b/w When A Blind Man Cries (Warner Brothers 7595)
EAGLES – Take It Easy b/w Get You In The Mood (Asylum 11005)
DAVID BROMBERG – The Hold-Up b/w Suffer To Sing The Blues (
STEVEN STILLS – It Doesn’t Matter (Atlantic 2876)
VIGRASS & OSBOURNE – Forever Autumn (Uni 55330)
THE HOLLIES – Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress b/w Look What We’ve Got (Epic 5-10871)
Good week for singles! I love the first three singles. Debut Eagles 45? David Bromberg with George Harrison – which version? That good non-hit Steve Stills 45. The debut of “Forever Autumn” which Justin Hayward would cover for the Jeff Wayne “War Of The Worlds” album in a few years. Hit single for The Hollies, 70’s style.
