Elektra Records 2/71 Sampler LP

Happy birthday Allan Sherman (1924), Dick Clark (1929), (Noel) Paul Stookey (Peter Paul & Mary) (1937), Shuggie Otis (son of Johnny Otis) (1954) and Billy Idol (Generation X) (1955).  Tiny Tim died today, a while back.

At the Buena Park swap meet a few days ago, I bought a reasonably old Elektra Records sampler LP. For $3.-  Dated 2/71 with serial number EK-PROMO-2

Side One

THE NEW SEEKERS – One (The Harry Nilsson song, with Dunbar)

SWAMP DOGG – Creeping Away

DAVID FRYE – The Funnies (from “Radio Free Nixon”)

SIREN – Relaxing with Bonnie Lou (Kevin Coyne, in Siren – 2nd album “Strange Locomotion”)

BREAD – She Was My Lady (from “Manna”)

Side Two

SIREN – The Stride

BREAD – He’s A Good Lad

SWAMP DOGG – Do You Believe

THE NEW SEEKERS – Never Ending Song Of Love

DAVID FRYE – I Did It My Way

Amazing to find this slice of 1971 for sale – at a swap meet no less!  Looks to be 5 new releases from Elektra (US).  Siren was licensed from Dandelion Records in England, but all the others seem to have their origination in Elektra (US).

S. A. H. B.

Happy birthday Hugh McKenna (of the S.A.H.B.) (1949), songwriter Randy Newman (1943) and businessman Berry Gordy Jr. (Motown guy) (1929).

My late brother saw The Sensational Alex Harvey Band in Germany.  I never had a chance to see ‘em, though they place right behind seeing Family play live!

Luther Grosvenor

Happy birthday Al Hirt (1922), Mary Travers (of Peter Paul & Mary) (1937), singer Johnny Rivers (1942) and Joni Mitchell (1943).

LUTHER GROSVENOR – “Under Open Skies” (Island Records), 1971

I bought “Under Open Skies” probably because it was on Island Records – before it ever came out in the US.  And when it did eventually come out in the US, it was still on Island Records (via Capitol)!

I just listened to it again – what a GREAT album!  Luther is also known as Ariel Bender, the guitarist of Mott The Hoople.  The songs are really good and the Gott Records CD of it has 2 x B-Sides, which only add to the fun.

It’s not a long album, quite the opposite!  It’s super short!  But that doesn’t take anything away from them.

I eventually got another Luther Grosvenor album, but I can’t remember any of it – even it’s title, “Floodgates”?

Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Happy birthday Keith Emerson (1944) and comedienne Goldie Hawn (1945).  According to my book, today is the day that Bill Haley & The Comets “Rock Around The Clock” is released in 1955.

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – the keyboard player of The Nice;  The singer of King Crimson and the drummer of Atomic Rooster!  Over the years, I have collected a few variants…

Family

Happy birthday Rick Gretch (of both Family and Blind Faith) (1945) – today “Wonderwall Music” by George Harrison is released – the first Beatles’ solo album (1968).

FAMILY

The initial Family LP was produced by Dave Mason of Traffic (and it had an insert)!  The 2nd Family LP had a giant poster in it.  “A Song For Me” had an insert in it.  I never had the chance to see them play live and I would love to see that!

George Harrison “Wonderwall Music”

Happy birthday Kinky Friedman (1944), Russ Ballard (Argent) (1947) and Annabella Lwin (singer of Bow Wow Wow) (1952; can that date be correct?).

Happy Halloween, everybody!  (Never been my favorite holiday, I must confess.)

GEORGE HARRISON “Wonderwall Music”

Not only the first Beatles’ solo record, but a damn fine LP!  I have a New Zealand LP version with the rear cover printed the right way around!  (Bruce Ward, thanks!)  Not only that, my LP has a Japanese poster in it, along with the LP insert!  The 2014 Jpn CD of it has some amazing bonus tracks, including an instrumental version of The Beatles’ “The Inner Light”!

I remember trying to figure out which songs had Eric Clapton, as he was uncredited on the initial edition.  “Ski-ing” is pretty much it, for Clapton, on this LP.  And, yes, he is credited on the 2014 edition (along with Ringo Starr – again, “Ski-ing”).  So, this was re-issued as an LP in 1992 or 1993, but likely not in 2014 – at least I’ve never seen an LP re-issue dated 2014!

And remember the confusion surrounding “Electronic Sound”?  A few months after “Wonderwall Music”, “Electronic Sound” turned up on a new label (“Zapple Records”)…Zappa or just “ZAP”?

Yes

Happy birthday Jon Anderson (singer of Yes) (1944) – this is also the day that Nick Drake died in 1974.

Since I only like Yes WITH Jon Anderson, I’ll do Yes today!  I’ve bought a few editions of some Yes titles!

“The Yes” on an Italian LP, a 5.1 DVD-A of “Fragile”…I remember hearing them back around 1970 on the FM radio: “All Good People”, probably.  I bought “Fragile” as soon as it came out, and quickly lost interest – but why?  It is British progressive rock!  I guess I just didn’t need “Close To The Edge”; a discount store near here had the 3LP “Yessongs” for a really low price, so I got that one, when new, too.

“90125” was originally called “80143” or something like that, indicating it was a dollar less in retail price.  I also bought the SA-CD boxed set, when it was new (as that added a few titles to the short list of what was on SA-CD).

Mott The Hoople

Happy birthday Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones) (1939), Dale “Buffin” Griffin (Mott The Hoople) (1948) and producer Ted Templeman (1944) – who was also in Harper’s Bizarre.

Let’s go with Mott The Hoople today!  Named from a novel by Willard Manus, Mott were always a good band, although they were popular in England (almost on a Rolling Stones level) they were practically unknown in the US prior to their hooking up with David Bowie in 1972.
