New Releases 1972.06.12

Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of June 12, 1972

Caught my eye:

VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR – Pawn Hearts (Charisma / Buddah CAS 1051) (LP) (CD)

URIAH HEEP – Demons & Wizards (Mercury SRM-1-630) (LP)

Two important British tiles get their U.S. issue – they added a track (“Theme One”) to the VDGG LP! (It was released in England during October, 1971). I really only liked the debut Uriah Heep album, sorry!

Also of interest:

DUST – Hard Attack (Kama Sutra 2059)

THE LAST POETS – Chastisement (Blue Thumb 39)

CHEECH & CHONG – Big Bambu (Ode 70 SP-77014)

FUNKADELIC – America Eats It’s Young (Westbound 2020)

ARGENT – All Together Now (Epic KE-31556)

I didn’t buy any of these…but I noticed all of them.

Notable singles:

STRAWBS – Heavy Disguise b/w Benedictus (A&M 1364)

STAN FREBERG – John & Marsha b/w Try (Capitol 3355) re-issue

EMITT RHODES – Tame The Lion b/w Golden Child of God (Dunhill 7315)

APOLLO 100 – Telstar b/w Minuet For A Funky Lady (Mega 0080)

MICKEY DOLENZ – Lover’s Prayer b/w Unattended In The Dungeon (MGM K-14395)

Strawbs tries again; Mr. Freberg gets a re-issue; pop prince Emitt Rhodes continues; Apollo 100 cover Joe Meek; Post-Monkees Mickey Dolenz 45, with an odd B-Side title.
