New Releases 1972.09.18

Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of September 18, 1972

Caught my eye:

ED SANDERS – Beer Cans On The Moon (Reprise 2105) (LP)

FIFTH DIMENSION – Greatest Hits On Earth (Bell 1106)

FLOYD CRAMER – Class of ’72 (RCA LSP-4773) (LP)

PATRICK SKY – Songs That Made America Famous (Adelphi 1400) (LP)

PENTANGLE – Solomon’s Seal (Reprise 2100)

2nd Reprise solo album from the main man of The Fugs. Seemed about time for a Fifth Dimension collection. This is the 8th Floyd Cramer “Class of” set. I heard the Patrick Sky LP on the radio, somewhat unbelievably (LP pictured is a slightly later edition, from ’73). I had really liked Pentangle’s “Sweet Child” album, a few years back.

Also of interest:

CACTUS – ‘Ot & Sweaty (Atco SD 7011)

QUIVER – Gone In The Morning (Warners 2630)

THE KINKS – Everybody’s In Showbiz (RCA VPS-6065) (double LP)

MICKEY HART – Rolling Thunder (Warners 2635) (CD)

WOLFMAN JACK (Wooden Nickel 1009)

I heard the Mickey Hart on the FM radio – mis-identified it as Roger Daltrey for years. 2nd Quiver album. The rest I haven’t heard! Wolfman Jack = Jack West.

Notable singles:

HARRY NILSSON – Spaceman b/w Turn On Your Radio (RCA B74-078)

THE DOORS – The Mosquito b/w It Slipped My Mind (Elektra EK-45807)

Good 45 for Mr. Nilsson. Jim-less Doors 45 – their final Elektra 45?
