Wild Turkey – Self Titled

We got three more San Diego Door album reviews from November, 1972 to share with you today. Cameron is mixed on Mott the Hoople’s All the Young Dudes (produced by David Bowie). Cameron is less enamored with the Rowan Brothers and Wild Turkey releases, but he’s got some funny things to say about each album. With these three new additions, the Journalism section now has 162 articles, interviews and reviews.

San Diego Door Reviews: Leon Russell, Humble Pie & more

Comments Off

We reach back into the archives again today for five brand spankin’ new album reviews that Cameron did for the San Diego Door circa Spring/early Summer of 1972! First up is a timely look (with Cameron’s The Union Tribeca debut right around the corner) at Leon Russell’s Carney. Cameron has very nice things to say about it and Humble Pie’s Smokin’. Also included are his very brief looks at Cold Blood’s First Taste of Sin, Buffy Sainte Marie’s Moonshot and Lindy Stevens’ Devotion.

More San Diego Door

Comments Off

In celebration of the recently updated Journalism section, I’m proud to present more rare Cameron Crowe penned reviews,circa 1972, from the San Diego Door. Cameron looks favorably on Mother Hen, Procul Harum: Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony, McKendree Spring 3 and Melanie’s Gather Me. On the other hand, there’s not a lotta love for the Raspberries Self Titled debut, Bloodrock Live and Grand Funk Railroad’s album Mark, Don and Mel. There are now 140 Cameron Crowe penned pieces in the Journalism section. Enjoy!

In the March 9, 1972 issue of the San Diego Door, Cameron praises the latest Yes LP, Fragile. He notes the craftsmanship of the record and (looking back now) correctly predicts that “Roundabout” will reach classic status.

Cameron conducts a lengthy interview with Wild Turkey frontman (and former Jethro Tull bassist) Glenn Cornick. This interview was published in The San Diego Door in late March, 1972. The band would only last for two albums before breaking up. Glenn did release two additional albums under the Wild Turkey name in 1996 and 2000.
