Alice Echo News (Newspaper) - April 12, 1977, Alice, Texas Sounds child in Street grows up a Small package named Garland Jeffreys has made a very big album and ifs a Good thing. Rock has needed a representative who a not championing White noise. Jeffreys a ghost writer a amp a records reflects the full spectrum of rhythms and emotions that his City new York has to offer but transcends his personal experience to become a metaphor for living under any Skyline. A ghost writer is about coming of age in the big City and for Garland Jeffreys ifs been quite a trip. First and Foremost he a had to come to grips with a mixed racial background that put him on the fringe of every group. Garlands Green eyed Tawny visage makes him a stand out in any crowd. But he a taken advantage of his connection with these different worlds to make a stylistically varied album with deceptive emotional depth and consistency. Whether he rocks out on Quot wild in the streets and Quot Cool Down boy a or shifts t i i a i i or of i a amp Wadst j or i a a in is investigative reporter . Kingston Raymond Burr rescues top to anchorwoman Eileen Partridge Diana Muldaur from a a near accidents after she was threatened by a blackmailer in a a Safe place on no cd tvs a Kingston confidential wednesday april 13. Ask Dick Kleiner of Mondsh acts their Best bet into reggae on Quot Why of and Quot i May not be your kind a the attitude remains constant. Quot some kids Are burned on radiators others Are psychologically Hurt a says Garland. Quot there Are Rich kids who Are fatherless some locked in closets others let go on the streets. I done to want to make myself out to be a in a not still an angry adolescent. But there a always been some sort of conflict. Like in a Cool Down boy a that a what i was always told. This Isnit Garland describes his growing up As Quot rough and is finding his own voice on this ironically titled record. He sings of the painful and sometimes violent experiences of an Urban childhood. A wild in the streets a originally released Over three years ago when it became a minor cult hit was written after Garland heard of a preteen rape and murder in the Bronx. Quot Why of is a child a response to racial separatism with specific reference to busing which Garland underscored in a recent Boston appearance. Quot i May not be your kind Speaks for itself. Says Garland Quot everyone i know has either come through those rough times or is trying to. That is the records sensibility. That a Why i feel people Are going to like it. Its forever All encompassing. That a Why i basically dedicated it to by Dick Kleiner dear Dick i have been told by different people that Bonny and Marie Osmond Are trying to get their staff members to give up their own religions and change to the mormon Faith. Is this True Cindy Groff Collegeville a. Someone close to the Osmond says its not True. This person says that the Osmond believe the Best Way they can advertise their Faith is by the example of their own Sterling behaviour. So they do no proselytizing. Dear Dick my brother and i heard that Farrah Fawcett majors and her husband Lee majors were breaking up because of something she said on a talk show. We were told she said on the show that she was a lesbian and that a Why they re breaking up. Is this True i Hope not. Miss Vigil Pueblo Colo. That Rumor is wrong on three counts a a the majors Are not breaking up a Farrah never said anything about being a lesbian on a talk show a Farrah never was anything but a genuine girl. Dear Dick i am a real Good fan of Elton John and i have heard some people say that he is a homosexual. Could you please straighten me out on this Lisa Weber Caldwell Ida. This seems to be the week for rumours about stars and their unusual sexual preferences. This one has some basis in fact. In an interview with rolling Stone Magazine John said he was bisexual. He said he liked women but. Dear Dick in be been wondering if Jean Stapleton of All in the family is Jimmy Carters sister. Pearl Maynard Plymouth wis. Jimmy has a sister but its not tvs Jean the president s sister is Ruth Carter Stapleton. Dear Dick i would like to know what year a the perils of Pauline was produced and who the leading lady was. . Fox de land Fla. If you mean the original that was Pearl White and it was made in 1914 there was a film biography of miss White starring Betty Hutton called a the perils of Pauline a which was made in 1947. Dear Dick can you Tell me if James Conrad of the wild wild West is old enough to have been in world War la i believe he was in my outfit. . Bank Tuscaloosa. Ala. His name is Robert Conrad not James and he Snow in Baa Baa Black sheep. No he Wasny to in world War ii. Conrad is Only 41. Or at least that a what he says # dear Dick can you Tell me Why there Are no men contestants on the new treasure Hunt program mrs. M. Klapp Muncy a. Two reasons according to the producers. First the audience at Home seems to identify More with women than men and second they find that women react better a i.e., yell and scream a than men do so they prefer women dear Dick please help me. I insist the locale of Baretta is the los Angeles area and a Friend says its new York. Which is it Carol Jones Huntington Beach Ca. Neither a although your Friend is closer. The location of Baretta is officially a unspecified a but it is definitely Eastern not Western. And unofficially they re using Newark n j., As the Model. Dear Dick is Shaun Cassidy who stars in the Hardy boys mysteries related to David or Jack Cassidy Sherry Mahler Tucson Ariz. Shaun is the son of Shirley Jones and the late Jack Cassidy which also makes him David Cassidy half brother newspaper Enterprise Assn i its been four years since Garland Jeffreys has made an album. While the wait he claims has made for some rough going in his adulthood it has allowed him to mature As a musician. Quot i feel like in a making a lot of big discoveries in my life and its Good to have emotional facts examined publicly. I used to feel a Little pushed around. Like in a lift me up where i sing a in a the restless child of the underground a that a pretty Clear. But in a not that connected to a feeling of resentment now. Quot in a More connected with the that people like Charlie Parker and Billie Holiday a jazz people a really suffered through it and made Beautiful music. I thought about that a lot during these years and its been a real inspiration. There a been a Long dry spell Between kind words. You just have to have Confidence in your work and fortunately i Garland found that by employing different rhythms like reggae he could Quot say something very heavy clearly a and through this he has found his own style. Its not the music that makes Quot ghost writer such an exciting and forceful record. Its the Complete musical statement. The tramps perhaps the Premier disco group held a giant Vansant in new York at Roseland dance City remember the movie Quot mar by Joey Sasso Garland Jeffreys i done to want to make myself out to be a in a not still an angry adolescent. But there a always been some sort of conflict. Like in a Cool Down boy a that a what i was always told. This Isnit to a. It raised one giant question in my mind can disco recording groups make it As live acts the Appeal of the discotheque with their generally excellent sound systems and Nethe worldly lights is completely lost when a group takes the stage in a Large Hall. Roseland had plenty of dance room but so Many people chose to stand on the dance floor. Then on one Side there were the Street creeps dealing a Loose joints acid the cocaine on the other Side the record company had its own Little social Section which included the unlikely likes of Diana Vreeland Andy Warhol Bill Wyman of the rolling stones somebody who claimed to be the Prince of Greece and some other people who walked around As if they belonged there a and you did no to. As for the tramps they Are As in be intimated better on record. Playing Bilal big thrill los Angeles apr when Johnny Sekka was a boy at a moslem school on Maccarthy Island in Gambia he was assigned one Day to voice the Call to prayer.

Sekka won the role against heavyweight Competition a Mohammed a no less. The Champion import Ned produce director Moustapha Akkad for the role of Bilal. Quot but Akkad wanted a moslem with acting experience to play the role a said Sekka. A besides How could anyone believe that Ali could be tortured and abused As Bilal was a Sekka underwent one of the most trying ordeals that any actor has faced. He and his fellow filmmakers not Only faced the heat wind and Sand of More than a year on desert locations. There was also great doubt As to whether the film would Ever be completed.

He directed Anthony Quinn Irene Pappas Michael Ansara Sekka and a largely English cast plus thousands of extras while the political pot boiled. A there was an air of uncertainty on the set a Sekka recalled. Quot we constantly heard rumours of a shutdown because Many leaders of the Arab world were against the film. That situation was inflamed by reports in the Western press that Quinn was playing the Quinn actually plays Hamza Mohammad a Uncle. Akkad followed the strict moslem tradition that the Prophet could not be pictured in any Way the camera plays the role of Mohammad. Quot Akkad left the set one Day to visit the King of Morocco a Sekka said. Quot when he returned he told us a this film will be made. Nothing will Stop but one Day the soldiers arrived and production was shut the resourceful Akkad managed to find new financing and moved the immense production Overland and by water to Libya. Throughout filming he shot each dialogue scene twice a in English and with another cast in arabic. Quot on the last Day of shooting i cried a Sekka said.
