RECORD MIRROR singles reviews, 15th October 1976

My A-level English teacher used to say that the best way of understanding a period is to examine the work of its second-rate artists, the first-rate artists being too original and ahead of their time to indicate what was really going on. With that in mind, welcome to October 1976.

A few months ago, inspired by Bob Stanley's superb 76 In The Shade, I did an extended deep dive into the year, in order to construct a follow-up playlist of similarly mellow tunes that could have been heard during its fabled long hot summer. There was a lot to choose from - the whittled down playlist still runs for over eight hours - and I was left thinking that this was a golden age. However, as my research had a strict cut-off point of August 31st, I had no idea what horrors awaited in the autumn. (I don't want to say "this is why punk had to happen", but, y'know.) And this isn't a freakishly bad week, either - all the neighbouring review columns are just as grim.

Have I whetted your appetite? Am I being unfair? There's only one way to find out. So pour yourself a stiff port and lemon, and get stuck into this lot.

I've omitted Kraftwerk's "Radioactivity", the obvious runaway winner, as well as the reissues (Charlie Rich, The Impressions, The Pioneers, Gary Glitter) and the eight that aren't available (Midnite, Surprise Sisters, Big Pig (with Little Porker), The Holder/McKenzie Calypso Kings, Chriss Kelly, Adrian Loveridge, Alyson and - most regrettably - Kevin Coyne).

I haven't heard even the songs by the artists I like! I think I'm safe in assuming "Wiggle That Wotsit" is not one of the Hollies' finest moments?

Didn't even finish scanning the list yet, but as an American I'm jumping at the chance to vote for a single by Steve Harley. I'm sure I drove roommates crazy with that album.

Three Rings for the Elven Bishop (Dan Peterson), Monday, 4 October 2021 14:53 (three weeks ago) link

It's a very obscure week. The only ones I knew at the time were Leo Sayer, Steve Miller, Steve Harley... and the only one I bought, which was Lew Lewis.

mike t-diva, Monday, 4 October 2021 14:58 (three weeks ago) link

I remember these: Leo Sayer, Gary Wright, Steve Miller Band, Engelbert Humperdinck

Leo Sayer will always make me think of being sick, staying home from school and watching housewife-oriented talk shows such as Merv Griffin's where Leo always seemed to pop up singing this song or "More Than I Can Say." (Guess he spent a fair amount of time in America in the late '70s).

Waylon Jennings - Can't You See

I remember this song in the original version by Marshall Tucker Band, which was a minor pop hit in 1977, having been reissued after the Waylon Jennings version had been a country hit.

Josefa, Monday, 4 October 2021 15:00 (three weeks ago) link

I suspect one of the reggae tracks will get my vote but this is a window into a different world, so many artists I don't know never mind the tracks.

Dan Worsley, Monday, 4 October 2021 15:14 (three weeks ago) link

I had the vaguest of memories of that Paul Davis track. Yikes, the lyrics. I'm sure Ms. Ronstadt was much appreciative.

Bernie writes the words
While Elton makes the music and the melody
Philadelphia Freedom
Always sounds so good to me
Stevie, you're a wonder
When you're singin' that perfect harmony (yeah, sweet harmony)
It's hard to believe
All the love that blind man made me see, whoa-whoa-oh-oh-oh

Superstar
I want to thank you for what you are, oh whoa
Only six ninety-eight
Lord, you sound so great
And I just can't wait
To hear you singin' (come on, come on)
Come on and sing it, woah-oh-oh

Heart Like a Wheel
Always made me feel any way I want to be
Linda, you're a winner
Oh, girl, you're lookin' thinner than you used to be
Joni Mitchell, you
Always pull me through when I get down and blue
Music is your callin'
Help, I think I'm fallin' in love with you, whoa-whoa-oh-oh-oh

Amazingly enough, that Paul Davis song was actually a US Top 40 hit.

Here are some international chart peaks. (This may look obsessive, but I needed to do something while listening to this lot.)

Leo Sayer: 1 (Canada, New Zealand, USA, Zimbabwe, UK Disco), 2 (Australia), 3 (South Africa), 5 (Ireland), 9 (Germany), 11 (Netherlands), 19 (Sweden), 21 (Belgium)

Gary Wright: 2 (USA), 71 (Australia)

Waylon Jennings: 1 (Canada Country), 4 (US Country), 97 (USA)

Lou Rawls: 9 (UK "Star Breakers"), 16 (UK Soul)

Eric Clapton: 24 (USA), 37 (Canada), 54 (Australia), 87 (Japan)

Sweet: 5 (Sweden), 11 (Austria), 13 (Germany), 18 (Denmark), 74 (Australia)

Steve Miller Band: 1 (USA, Canada), 10 (UK Disco), 22 (Netherlands), 23 (New Zealand), 28 (Germany), 30 (Australia)

Diana Ross: 10 (US R&B), 11 (UK Soul), 24 (Canada), 25 (USA), 31 (US Adult Contemporary)

The Hollies: 11 (New Zealand), 19 (Sweden), 23 (Netherlands)

Paul Davis: 35 (USA)

Tamiko Jones: 12 (US R&B), 60 (USA)

Engelbert Humperdinck: 1 (New Zealand, US Adult Contemporary), 7 (Canada), 8 (USA), 13 (Australia), 40 (US Country)

Vernon Oxford: 17 (US Country)

Sutherland Brothers & Quiver and Diana Ross also made it into the "Star Breakers", a weekly bubbling-under top 10 that was printed in Record Mirror.

Some other surprises up there. Nice to see that they were all wiggling their wotsits in New Zealand.

Oh, and Kraftwerk got to 7 in France, 31 in Italy.

mike t-diva, Monday, 4 October 2021 19:17 (three weeks ago) link

I think Leo Sayer is the only one I know I have heard. Going to check the reggae tracks.

i had no idea Kevin Coyne covered Fever which i'd love to hear.

stirmonster, Monday, 4 October 2021 19:42 (three weeks ago) link

I remember that Dennis Waterman one.

Anyway, yeah slimpickns. Voting Lew Lewis, mainly for the b-side.

Mark G, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 09:26 (three weeks ago) link

Of the reggae tracks, the Aswad, Bobby Melody and Equators are all really good, Big Youth not so much.

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 10:16 (three weeks ago) link

A friend has sent me the Kevin Coyne track - here it is. I think this explains why it's not available online; Kevin Coyne-goes-disco is something probably best forgotten.

mike t-diva, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 11:55 (three weeks ago) link

Fantastic effort. Thanks Mike. Kevin Coyne-goes-disco is blowing my mind and agreed, probably best forgotten, but notable for being produced by Mutt Lange!!

stirmonster, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 11:59 (three weeks ago) link

Wow, that's a new one on me!

Starmer: "Let the children boogie, let all the children boogie." (Tom D.), Tuesday, 5 October 2021 12:29 (three weeks ago) link

There's a Silver Convention influence there...

Mark G, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 13:15 (three weeks ago) link

Kevin Coyne-goes-disco is something probably best forgotten.

Oh I don't know. It is pretty hard to imagine Kevin Coyne getting on down on TOTP though.

THE GREAT:

Lew Lewis And His Band - Boogie On The Street
(Recorded while Lewis was still playing harp for Eddie & The Hot Rods, recorded in Canvey Island, and backed by three-quarters of Doctor Feelgood amongst others. At the time of its release, I was fanatically obsessed with Eddie & The Hot Rods, owned all three of their singles (Lewis plays on the first two), and I was also enjoying Dr Feelgood's Stupidity, so this couldn't fail to delight. It was my Big Autumn Of Pub Rock, which filled in the time nicely before the punk singles started dropping, and this one was made cooler by being on Stiff - I actually bought it on the same day as The Damned's "New Rose", along with two other Stiff releases, Nick Lowe's "So It Goes" and the Tyla Gang's "Styrofoam". Oh what a day that was.)

Steve Miller Band - Rock 'N' Me
(One of these days, I really need to take a deep dive into Miller's back catalogue, as I really like everything I've heard. "Macho City"! Surprisingly big in the UK Disco chart, but the UK Disco chart didn't become fully "disco" until early 1978.)

Aswad - Three Babylon
(Their second single, following up "Back To Africa", is an intricately intoxicating reminder of how great Aswad were, before they went all showbiz in the late Eighties. 1976 was a landmark year for roots reggae, which built up a widening base of support in the UK: championed in the rock press, played by Peel, loved by your OG punk rockers, and pushed further that autumn by Virgin, who signed a bunch of Jamaican artists en masse and put out a cheap sampler LP called The Front Line, as well as by Island, who collaborated with Melody Maker in the release of another cheap sampler, one side of which was wholly roots. Or at least that's how it looked from where I was sitting.)

Tamiko Jones - Reachin' Out For Your Love
(She's back, hurrah! The lead track from her self-produced 1975 LP Love Trip, written by Johnny Bristol, it gets slinky-n-seductive just right, for once.)

Bobbie Melody - Jah Bring I Joy
(A Joe Gibbs/Errol Thompson production, and as such right up my street. I like all the ah-ah-ing.)

mike t-diva, Sunday, 10 October 2021 16:09 (two weeks ago) link

THE GOOD:

Leo Sayer - You Make Me Feel Like Dancing
(As Sue Byrom in RM points out, this was a radical departure for Leo Sayer, which could well have been inspired by The Bee Gees' similar and successful recent shift, with "Jive Talkin" and "You Should Be Dancing". In other words, Sayer saw which way the wind was blowing, and adapted his own falsetto to pop-funk. It's very well done, bringing him massive international success, but I don't detect anything near the same residual love for the track, which you never hear revived. In this respect, perhaps Sayer's calamitous, comeback-scuppering appearance on Celebrity Big Brother should also be factored in.)

Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - (I Believe) Love's A Prima Donna
(Cockney Rebel were never the same after the original band ditched their leader and the hired hands stepped in, but this is a well-executed piece of work from the final album to bear their name. There are slight echoes of "Make Me Smile" in the guitar break, which is no bad thing.)

Gary Wright - Love Is Alive
(The second of his two huge US hits, following "Dream Weaver" earlier in the year, but in the UK he remained largely unknown. It doesn't move me, but I can acknowledge its merit; there are some pleasing touches in the arrangement.)

Diana Ross - One Love In My Lifetime
(The forgotten single from the self-titled album that had brought us "Do You Know Where You're Going To" and "Love Hangover". It's got an Ashford & Simpson feel, and they did indeed a write a song for the same album, but it wasn't this one. A grower, and very nearly Great.)

Equators - Father Oh Father
(A sought-after hundred quid job on Discogs, and I'm guessing this is of Jamaican origin, i.e. not the work of the UK reggae band who signed to Stiff. All the elements work together really well, and its relative sparseness feels like a balm after wading through so much over-arranged dreariness elsewhere.)

mike t-diva, Sunday, 10 October 2021 16:10 (two weeks ago) link

THE OK:

Moon - Day Dreamin'
(Adequate journeyman soft rock, and as such, thoroughly typical of 1976.)

Waylon Jennings - Can't You See
(In the late 70s, C&W was massive in the North Notts village where I grew up, with regular and very well attended events in our memorial hall. Given that I couldn't wait to escape the place, I loathed almost all C&W records of that era, as a matter of principle, and I still struggle with the genre to this day. That said, at least this has a bit more grit and bite than Don Fucking Williams.)

Lou Rawls - From Now On
(Written and produced by Bunny Sigler, who worked on loads of great stuff, but wasn't the Philly formula flagging a bit by now? Still, with a better song, this would be up there with the Goods. I like the bits where the strings saw and stab, and Lou's in great voice.)

Sweet - Lost Angels
(Still big in Europe! Having ditched Chinnichap and assumed their longed-for creative control, they've clearly got their eyes set on Queen's crowd.)

Gene Pitney - Hold On
(A cover of Chris De Burgh's debut single, which I have part-played for comparative purposes. This is the better version, largely because it's Pitney - and arrangement-wise, if you're going to do a song like this, you might as well throw the kitchen sink it at, right?)

Tony Burrows - When My Little Girl Is Smiling
(Tony Burrows, Lew Warburton, Arnold/Martin/Morrow - it's like the 1970 hack-gang got back together again for one last shot, and it sounds as if they had fun doing it. There are some bizarre little details in here - the cheap-sounding and jarringly prominent electric piano, the kettledrums, the butch boy backing singers that pop up from nowhere and promptly disppear again - which make me warm to it more than I strictly should. I think I know what was going on here, and what was going on here was Brotherhood Of Man, who had just cleaned up with "Save Your Kisses For Me". Originally containing Burrows, who had sung on their first hit, "United We Stand", the 1976 line-up featured none of the original 1970 members, and Burrows may well have been looking on with envy. His natural response? A cover of a Goffin/King song that could be read as a straight-up love song, or as a doting father's ode to his infant child. Remind you of anything? And also, while I'm about it, when was the last hit song about parenthood? They were quite common in the 1970s, but has there even been one this millennium?)

Big Youth - What's Going On
(I had high hopes for this, but it falls somewhat short. It's an oddly jaunty, easy-going version of Gaye's protest song, and I don't feel as if Big Youth fully engages with it. Good bassline, though.)

Hudson-Ford - Sold On Love
(The game was pretty much up for these ex-Strawbs, who re-grouped in 1979 as The Monks. As an attempt to incorporate a bit of disco, or at least a bit of "December 1963", it's better than Kevin Coyne and The Hollies, but way short of Everybody Loves Leo.)

Jeanne Pruett - I've Taken
(The neat little twist at the end of the song makes you hear it in a different way thereafter, which is maybe why this minor US country hit was released in the UK. Yes, I'm speculating about the impact of "Save Your Kisses For Me" again.)

mike t-diva, Sunday, 10 October 2021 16:11 (two weeks ago) link

THE IFFY:

Brian & Brenda Russell - Gonna Do My Best To Love You
(Brenda went on to do loads of good stuff solo, starting with the wonderful "Way Back When" in 1979, but this earlier collab with her husband at the time, made with the help of Elton's gang and released on Rocket, is pretty sappy stuff.)

The Cubs - Do You Love Your Teddy Bear
(Seemingly a one-off project by Robin Millar, who went on to be a successful producer in the 1980s, most notably with Everything But The Girl and Sade. Perhaps this single helped to clarify his future direction; he's no singer and no songwriter.)

Don Covay - Travellin' In Heavy Traffic
(The players do their best, but the song is just... nothing. The first, drum-based, break is quite nifty, but the second sounds like someone forgot to turn the volume knob down on the fade.)

Guys 'N' Dolls - Stoney Ground
(Comparatively contemporary by their standards, in a Pilot/Jigsaw kind of way, i.e. still about 18 months out of date.)

Gary Benson - Sharing You
(Fun fact: Gary Benson has tried five times to field a UK Eurovsion entry, never making it beyond the national finals.)

Alan Tew Orchestra - The Sweeney
(The amazing original Harry South version had already been and gone in 1975, hence presumably the reason for this initially faithful but subsequently blanded-out cover.)

The Rowans - Ooh My Love
(If we're having workmanlike journeyman soft-rock, I'm sticking with Moon.)

Ruby James - You Burn A Hole In My Soul
(Having slogged through countless Biddu productions when listing the remnants of Jame Hamilton's collection for sale, I am left with little tolerance for this ersatz-Northern effort. As for Ruby James, who does sound like she's having fun, she did just fine as a session singer, particularly when the 1980s haircut bands came a-knockin'.)

Tony Wilson - I Like Your Style
(A founder member of Hot Chocolate, who had left them in 1975, Wilson wrote or co-wrote most of the band's hits - including "You Sexy Thing" - but you wouldn't guess it from this generic bumper.)

Eastbound Expressway - Danger Zone
(Ian Levine proteges, who stuck with him into the Hi-NRG era and did OK with "Primitive Desire" in 1983. Levine does occasionally get it right, but not here. Decent strings, but the rest of it all sounds out of whack the and voices veer on the pitchy.)

mike t-diva, Sunday, 10 October 2021 16:11 (two weeks ago) link

THE GARBAGE:

Eric Clapton - Hello Old Friend
(We're only two months on from his notorious "Keep Britain White" rant, and basically he can just fuck off. Oh, the music? Pfffft.)

Sutherland Brothers & Quiver - Secrets
(NOBODY IS MAKING AN EFFORT. It makes me quite angry actually. Save us Johnny Rotten, etc.)

R & J Stone - Thrown It All Away
(In which the "We Do It" hit-makers did just that. Equal parts saccharin and syrup, which is never a healthy blend.)

The Hollies - Wiggle That Wotsit
(FFS, even Mud did a better opportunistic jump into disco with "Shake It Down". Still, big in New Zealand, we can't take that away from them.)

Rock Island Line - Ice Cream
(Rockabilly-tinged update of a 1956 Chris Barber trad jazz cut. Annoyingly whimsical.)

Paul Davis - Super Star
(No one retrospectively fat-shames Ronstadt on my watch.)

The Chanter Sisters - Just Your Fool
(My problem at the time with Rock Follies was that the band's music didn't sound anything like contemporary pop/rock. I was wrong. It sounded like The Chanter Sisters.)

Mike Lesley - My Mama Said
(He's no Gary Benson.)

Dennis Waterman - I Will Glide
(Really boring cover of Phillip Goodhand-Tait's almost-as-boring album track from earlier in the year.)

Survival - Sweet Music
(Their only single, a messy calypso/afrobeat/soca hodge-podge that's a UK cover of a vastly better Trinidadian original by Lord Shorty. It doesn't sound as if the band have any natural feel for what they're playing.)

Engelbert Humperdinck - After The Lovin'
(Still big in English-speaking nations outside the UK! When the pop-pickers of New Zealand weren't too busy wiggling their wotsits, they were a-smoochin' and a-canoodlin' to this astonishingly big hit, whose parent album of the same name was nominated for a Grammy. Who knew?)

Vernon Oxford - Redneck!
(I... just... can't.)

mike t-diva, Sunday, 10 October 2021 16:12 (two weeks ago) link

I didn't get to the playlist in time to vote. Catching up now and have been surprised at how it's nearly as bad as I thought – I actually found it more listenable on average than the 1966 one – until I just got to Sutherland Brothers & Quiver. Garbage indeed. Might skip the rest of this Sweet track too.

Nice juxtaposition with Radioactivity coming next on the playlist. What a contrast.
