Love Story – Original Soundtrack

Love Story - Original Soundtrack CB115 front

Ah ‘Love Story’ what can I say…    where do I begin? The whole phenomena that sprang from this 1970 movie and especially the music permeated the conscience of an entire generation. If you were alive then you should recall that you could not escape the tune. It was everywhere. The Love symbol was on pillows, posters,  mugs, greeting cards and a variety of merchandise. The film was nominated for seven academy awards winning one for best music, original score for Francis Lai. Love means never having to say you’re sorry or so they say.      Enjoy  CB

Paul Kantner Grace Slick – Sunfighter

Paul Kantner Grace Slick - Sunfighter CB113 front

freebie

Recorded at Wally Heider Studios in San Francisco and distributed by RCA ‘Sunfighter’ was the second album released on Jefferson Airplane’s own vanity label Grunt . ‘Bark’ being the first release in September followed by ‘Sunfighter’ in November and ‘Papa John Creach’ in December of 1971. All available in quad 8 cartridge. Many prominent bay area musicians appear on this album including Jerry Garcia, David Crosby, Graham Nash and The Tower of Power horns. As you may have guessed the infant pictured on the cover is the daughter of Grace Slick and Paul Kantner, China Wing Kantner who turned 46 this past January. Included for your reference and pleasure is the Libretto Booklet originally packaged with the vinyl LP.

I have wanted to post this album for several years now but only had a Q8 which was slightly damaged. Have been looking for a better copy for a long time now but none have become available so I decided to release this as is. The tape is damaged and will appear here with two spots of slight distortion. If you can not accept anything less than perfection then I suggest you avoid this release.    Enjoy     CB

Poco – Seven

Poco - Seven CB111 front

 

Recorded at RCA studios in Hollywood and released in 1974 ‘Seven’ is the sixth studio album by Poco and seventh overall when including their live album Deliverin’. It is their first album released after the departure of founding member Richie Furay. The front cover was designed by Phil Hartman, brother of Poco’s manager John Hartmann, who as a graphic artist also designed covers for the band America.

Jim Messina makes an appearance playing mandolin on ‘Rocky Mountain Breakdown’. Burton Cummings appears on piano and Bobbye Hall adds congas. Do you know how many songs she has appeared on that reached the top ten? That would be twenty-two with six of those reaching number one. What a musician what a career!

This album was not the commercial monster Poco would have hoped for. They would have to wait until 1978 with the release of  ‘Legend’ to achieve their career zenith.       Enjoy    CB

Carpenters – Close To You

Carpenters - Close To You CB109 front

Carpenters second studio album ‘Close To You’ was released in 1970 on A&M records. The LP peaked at #2 on Billboard’s album chart. Their breakthrough hit ‘(They Long to Be) Close to You’, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, was their first gold record. Recorded with instrumental backing by L.A. studio musicians from the Wrecking Crew the song topped the charts for four weeks.. This album also contains their second gold record ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’, considered their signature song, as well as a cover of The Beatles song ‘Help!’. The brother sister duo won three Grammy awards during their career. Richard revealed Karen and he decided on the name Carpenters without a ‘the’ because at the time it was hip and taking clues from other groups such as Cream and Bread.    Enjoy    CB
