ROB SEZ: How amazing is it to live in the Internet age and be able to discover music like 
this?!? London area band Phonograph recorded Volume 1, its one & only album in 2001 — 
featuring shades of Paul McCartney, Badfinger and Beatle-esque harmonies. Bewilderingly, 
the album went unreleased until 2014 (even still, none of the usual outlets 
seem to know about it). Musical friend & blog colleague Don recommended the album, 
which led me on a treasure hunt for ROIOs to share here. Not quite an ASH Tuesday post, 
but almost...

TREMENDOUS THANKS to Paul Campbell for sharing his archives with the fans!

Phonograph's one & only album: Volume 1
*recorded in 2001 & finally released in 2014*

  1. Hi

    Great Songs from a great band.

    thanks for sharing!!


  2. This is such a good album. A genuine classic.

  3. Hi,
    Just seen this review posted on the bands facebook page and don't understand something.
    The Volume 1 album I have has a lot of different tracks that are not mentioned in your list (Hangin around, Maheema, Don't bring me down amonst others) but doesn't have many of the tracks you list.

    Is there also an album available only with demo's?



    1. Hello Lee - No, there is no "album" other than Vol. 1. But if you download the share I've posted, you'll have a kind of companion to the album! Enjoy...
