Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMdiy, April 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-7 Turntable topics Instrumentation blends secret to good album By BILL KUCHERAN Tubular Bells-Mike Oldfleld It has taken a 20-year-old English youth to demonstrate that the secret to a good album is not in how flashy individual instruments are, but in how the total instrumentation blends to create the desired musical effect. Oldfield finished the album after months of painstaking recording, as he is virtually the only artist on the record, playing instruments ranging from piano and guitar to timpani and bells. The technique he uses involves his starting with a short, simple melodic or rhythmic statement, and progressively adding instrumentation to it until it switches in character or is built up to a climax and concluded. A similar style can be heard on segments of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' 1 p or on the opening bars of the song 'Baba O'Riley' by the Who. While none of his playing on the instrumental album is spectacular, the effect of his final combinations is stunning This is an extremely fine record, already on many critics' lists as one of the best records of the year. (Virgin Records VR 13-105) Wood As the driving force of the Move, Roy Wood was responsible for much of the surging, pop-rock sound that was the trademark of that fine English group. In 1971 Move members Wood, Bev Bevan and Jeff Lynne also formed the Electric Light Orchestra, an experiment in classics rock fusion, which featured the combination of guitars and cellos. When the Move broke up, Lynne and Bevan continued E.L 0 while Wood formed his own cello-sax-rock band, Wizzard. Taking a break from his group, he recorded 'Boulders.' On the record, Wood handles almost everything, from cover art to instrumentation. He performs both solid rock and melodic pop styles, including country Coming to MEDICINE HAT Stop at the FRONTIER MOTEL Excellent Accommodations. Reasonable Rates Also Weekly and Commercial Rates Collect at 527-2266 and western and early rock variations. His instrumental prowess (including banjo, sax, cello, drums and guitar) is better than most groups, and his singing, ranging from bass to falsetto, is outstanding. Coupled with his witty lyrics, the result is a delightful record that, for fans of Move or Beatle styled pop-rock, is a must (United Artists UA- LA168-F) The New York Dolls The commercial success of the Alice Cooper image of bi- sexual clothes and gaudy makeup has helped spawn what has become known as 'glam rock'. This is where makeup, costuming and stage acts become important elements in musical presentations What is beginning to happen, though, is that these non-musical elements are superceding groups' music in importance. Such is the case of the New York Dolls. The five man group has been notorious in New York for several years, but Polydor's major promotion campaign has helped elevate them to international status. This is based soley on their transvestite image, for their music can be heard to be only wild screaming vocals set to poor attempts at rock and roll. Until they gain some musical talent, their records can safely be considered garbage. (Mercury SRM 1-675) Round Caine Scrubaloe Caine is a six- man group members include Henry Small, -who may be locally remembered from Gainsboro Gallery, and Jim Kale, the ex-Guess Who bassist Their single "Feelin' Good On Sunday' has helped them make a name for themselves. They rely on simple, loose instrumentation and good vocals, with country and pop rock songs balanced by a number of guitar oriented blues cuts 'Round One' is an all-round good record, and the group desc-rves to be heard further.

Her solo album, where she is backed by musicians who include Pete Townshend, does a good job of matching her smooth voice to the proper material. In this case, it's slow, melodic pop ballads, although a few rockers are included. The arrangements are full without being flowery, and she shows that she is a capable singer, both in rock and lounge-style music. (MCA Records MCA-356) McBride A Toronto native, Danny McBride is the brother of Bob McBride, the former Lighthouse lead singer. Primarily known as a guitarist, McBride went to Britain to cut this, his first album. He does all his own mater a', which strikes an even ''ance between slow, quiet -Vjiig and harder rock material The album is well arranged, and McBride's vocals and electric guitar solos are highlights. Only a few faults in this good album by a very promising artist. (Epic KE 32576) A Fine, White Hann Recorded in Edmonton, the album features folksinger Hann and his songs, highlighted by the insightful lyrics of his producer Pete White Basically simple folk ballads, the songs offer correspondingly uncluttered instrumental backing. They are performed reasonably well on this average album. (London NAS 13530) More use of Canadian talent urged TORONTO (CP) -Seven of Canada's theatre directors have signed a statement addressed to the Board of Governors of the Stratford Festival urging them to use more Canadian personnel. William Glassco, John Hirsch, Martin Kinch, George Luscombe, Leon Major, Henry Tarvamen and Keith Turnbull called for a meeting with the board to discuss the future of theatre in Canada. The statement says the board should give more attention to Canadian plays that need "the resources of the best equipped and most highly-subsidized theatre in the country. It says the board should try to use more Canadian directors, actors and designers and make an effort to bring back Canadian artists who have gained experience abroad Stratford should bring in the finest artists in the world as guests but not "as permanent personnel, the statement says. It also urges the board to add more members of the theatrical community to its ranks and admit fewer members with mainly financial backgrounds. Tap dancer of 40's dead NEW YORK (AP) Lawrence Jackson, 53, who tap-danced as Baby Lawrence with top jazz instruments since the 1940's. has died here. In the 1940s, he worked with the jazz bands of Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and Count Basie, and became widely known as one of the best jazz tap dancers in the world. SASKATOON (CP) The Riverside Players from the Saskatchewan Penitentiary took most of the honors at the Theatre Saskatchewan section of the Dominion Drama Festival during the weekend. Members of the production, Under The Spreading Chestnut Tree, are prisoners at the maximum security penitentiary. Riverside director Ron Emkeit, who wrote the play, won the best director trophy plus the Leader Post Award.

SACKVILLE, N.B. (CP) Since last November listeners to the CBC northern short- wave service, broadcast from the high-frequency transmitters at nearby Cole's Island, have been able to listen to hours of nonstop broadcasting daily in Es- kimo, Cree, French and Eng- lish. The broadcasts emanate from new antennae directed northwards and fed by new watt transmitters. Five transmitters have been installed-at the enlarged and renovated CBC building at Cole's Island, which also supplies facilities for the International Service and the armed forces. Firm agrees to purchase Global TV OTTAWA (CP) Canwest Broadcasting Ltd of Winnipeg has agreed to purchase up to million in Global TV debentures and stock if a takeover bid by IWC Communications Ltd. is successful. The agreement between IWC and Canwest is among the thick pile of documents that form IWC's application to the Canadian Radio- Television Commission for the takeover of control in Global Communications Ltd. The CRTC will begin public hearings Wednesday on the IWC application. IWC's bid to takeover Global includes a guarantee of million credit and the purchase of million of Global debentures and stock. The takeover bid, if approved, guarantees IWC management of Global until January, 1983. Enlarging and improving the facility included the two- year project to install the new transmission towers. Some million is being spent over a six-year period to create one of the world's most modern shortwave stations. The facilities have enabled CBC officials to work with British and West German broadcasting concerns for relaying European programs to the western United States and there are reciprocal arrangements to relay programs of Canadian origin to Western Europe. Denies claim John Wayne, above, says he has sent Senator Lowell Weicker, Re- publican-Conn., a tele- gram denying the sena- tor's contention he got favors from the Inter- national Revenue Service. In addition to the new equip- ment, three of the original 000-watt transmitters still are in service, making a total output of 50 million watts. The new equipment is com- puter-controlled with support facilities to carry on the station's work should the main computer break down. Programming for a 24-hour period is fed into the computer which then automatically switches antennae and frequencies as required. The older transmitters still require manual shifting. The staff of 32 carries out mainte- nance work. The web of wires and equip- ment feeds daily programming to audiences in northern Quebec, parts of Labrador, Northern Ontario and some Western provinces. Others include isolated listeners in the Keewatin and Franklin districts of the Northwest Territories. Before the new transmitters were located on Cole's Island, these listeners were dependent on Radio Moscow, the Voice of America, the BBC and programs beamed by powerful transmitters operated by South American religious institutions. The CBC International Serv- ice uses facilities here for 22Vz hours a day, sending Canadian-content programs to the Canadian forces in Germany, Cyprus and Egypt. Other Canadian news pro- grams are picked up by stations in Florida and Barbados and rebroadcast for Canadians in those areas. Don't Overlook NOOK Coming Soon!
