New Releases 1972.07.24

Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of July 24, 1972

Caught my eye:

GARY OWENS – Put Your Head On My Finger (Pride 0002) (LP)

CHICAGOChicago V (Columbia KC-31102) (LP)

VAN MORRISON – St. Dominic’s Preview (Warner Brothers 2633)

GENTLE GIANT – Three Friends (Columbia KC-31649) (LP)

Insane comedy LP from L.A. D.J. Gary Owens (KMPC-AM), just wonderful! The first Chicago album to not be a multiple disc set! Decent Van Morrison album. New label for Vertigo act Gentle Giant.

Also of interest:

MILES DAVIS – Live Evil (Columbia CQ-30954) QUAD double LP

GRANDPA JONES – Live (Harmony H-31396) (LP)

JUDAS JUMP – Scorch (Pride 0003)

DONNY OSMOND – Too Young (MGM SE-4854)

Miles in Quad! Is this the one with Hermeto? I think this Grandpa Jones LP is a straight re-issue of a Monument title. Judas Jump – same label as Gary Owens – isn’t this British? Teen fodder from young Donny Osmond.

Notable singles:

BLOODROCK – D.O.A. (Capitol 3399)

BREAD – Guitar Man (Elektra 45803)

SLADE – Take Me Back ‘Ome (Polydor 15046)

MELTON, LEVY & THE DEY BROTHERS – Play Little Children b/w S.O.S. (Columbia 4-45650)

BEE GEES – Run To Me b/w Road To Alaska (Atco 6896)

Heavy stuff from Bloodrock, maaan; dandy A-side from Bread; real UK Glam Rock from Slade; Melton is of course Bary Melton, the guitarist from Country Joe & The Fish; OK minor hit for the Brothers Gibb.
