New Releases 1972.07.17

Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of July 17, 1972

Caught my eye:

CAPTAIN BEYOND – self-titled debut (Capricorn 0105) (LP) (CD)

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Trilogy (Cotillion SD 9903) (LP)

MARK VOLMAN & HOWARD KAYLAN – The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie (Reprise 2099) (LP)

Great hard rock from Captain Beyond – with a 3-D cover, even! Third (or fourth) album from EL&P (depends on how you count “Pictures At An Exhibition”). Post-Zappa Flo & Eddie (nice pop music).

Also of interest:

JOHN RENBOURNE – Faro Annie (Reprise 2082)

KOOL & THE GANG – Music Is The Message (Delite 2011)

SWAMP DOGG – Cuffed, Collared & Tagged (Cream 9009)

British acoustic guitarist Renbourne gets yet another US release. R&B from Kool & The Gang and incomprehensible ‘soul music’ from Swamp Dogg.

Notable singles:

THE ROLLING STONES – Happy b/w All Down The Line (Rolling Stones 19104)

THE WHO – Join Together b/w Baby, Don’t You do It (Decca 32983)

CHI COLTRANE – Thunder & Lightning b/w Time To Come In (Columbia 4-45640)

CHUCK BERRY – My Ding-A-Ling (Chess 2131)

GARY GLITTER – Rock & Roll Part 2 (Bell 45237)

WAYNE COCHRAN – Long Long Day b/w Sleepless Nights (Epic 5-10893)

Single from “Exile On Main Street” for the Stones; Non-LP single for The Who; Chi Coltrane – was that really her name? Re-service for Chuck Berry (and it’s a live version, as I recall); bona-fide glam rock from Gary Glitter; 2nd single from Wayne Cochran & Co., from their self-titled sole Epic LP.

Re: Notable Singles

Mostly good stuff there! Excepting Chuck Berry who will have that single hanging around his neck until he dies. I'm sure it helped the bottom line but was it worth it to pay his taxes and keep him in teenaged girls? Wait - don't answer that. That also applies to Gary Glitter, thoough R&RP2 is stil a kickin' number. I've never heard the WC single. These heathen ears have only ever heard "Goin' Back To Miami."

This may well have been the final major label single for Wayne C. After this, I am only aware of his releases on his own "Voice for jesus" label.
