Their pop-rock tunes provide the material for the which is produced by Gus who has pro- duced Elton John and the Bonzo Dog Band. Their infec- tious songs are a perfect blend of rock and folk while Dudgeon skillfully blends Joan's powerful voice and excellent piano playing with discrete use of strings and the work of the backing musicians Davey Elton John's The generously filled album shows that already Joan Armatrading is in a class with Carly Simon or Carole King. and M SP Willie and the Lapdog Gallagher and Lyle An English folk Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle have been working together for several years songs can be found on Mary Hopkin's Those Were The Days Mainly acoustical they WJjite all their which varies from Jow ballads to blues and rock-influenced cuts. Vocally and instrument- ally'they harmonize beautiful- andean be likened to a less pop-sounding Simon and Gar- funkle. Pleasing and Willie and the Lapdog rates as one of the better modern folk albums. and M SP The Autumn Stone The Small Faces An anthology The Au- tumn Stone is part of the excel- lent Daffodil collection of re- released English rock. While not as good as the Small Faces classic Ogden's Nut Gone Flake The Autumn Stone is still a fine collection of the band's showing how superior they were then to today's Faces or their then leader Steve Mar- iott's present Humble Pie. The two record album covers material from their 1965 simple rock and roll tunes to their more complex and melo- dic material their old hit 'Itchycoo Al- though poorly the Ip rates as a good buy. dil SBAB Jack The Toad Savoy Brown Once again the Savoy per- sonel roster has ac- quiring vocalist Jackie a one-time London house paint- and with former members Andy Pyle and Ron Berg back after a stint in Bloodwyn Pig. Break- ing from their straight blues they play blues-influ- enced including both rollicking cuts to slower ballad styles. They are done simply and with Lynton's gravelly voice helping to make for a lively atmosphere.

XPAS Twice Removed From Yes- terday Robin Trower When guitarist Robbie Trow- er left Procol they suf- fered from an excess of flowery brought on by the loss of his strong rhythmic style. His in lacks the melody and style from his music with Procol Harum. Pro- duced by another ex-member of the Matthew Trower is joined by James Dewar on bass and vocals and by drummer Reg Isidore. Their music is made up of slow blues- like dominated by Trow- er's amplified and blur- red rhythm and lead giritar underlying Dewar's pow- erful vocals While it can't be considered a completely solid it does reveal Trower as an excellent guitarist. CHR The Best of the James Gang The James Gang This collection of songs is taken from the first three James Gang Yer Rides aTid Thirds. This was shll when Joe Walsh led the group he has since gone and released an excellent Barn- while the Gang had floundered somewhat with re- placements Dom Troiano and Roy Kenner joining Jimmy Fox and Dale Peters. Their strong point was their ability to produce driving that could easily be played live. Several slower songs are with Walsh's guitar in the but the Ip shows it was the harder rock material that made the group. DunMU Lancashire Hustler Keef Hartley Drummer Keef Hartley was one of the original members of John Mayall's Blues Breakers. On his album one hears a va- riety of amongst them laid-back and fast-paced straight rock. Interestingly while the album is credited to he only plays drums on while his five mian backing group handles all the vocals and other instrumentation. The mixture is to Hartley's as the album is quite good. XDES The History of the Everly Brothers The Everly Broth- ers The year was the song Bye Bye and Don and Phil Everly first reached num- ber one in the charts. For three years they reigned as one of rock's biggest eventual- ly fading out gracefully. Their polished rockabilly style was very of with their distinctive har- but also with their aimed at only the teen- age and their sometimes early rock and sometimes but usually a blend of both. While the two record set is quite short average side plays for only 12 and has only medi- ocre liner it. rates as an excellent buy for their fans or for those who are collectors of authentic early rock music. 20 Golden Hits Mamas and Papas Denny Cass Elliot and John and Michelle Phillips formed what amounted to the first successful American group after the British Inva- sion following the Beatles in 1964. Their polished harmonies and well produced arrange- ments offered commercial ap- peal yet with a distinctly honest lyric and melodic struc- ture. The album displays the music that successfully trans- cended the 1966 to 1968 period in which rock changed from largely commercial blandness to the valid musical force it is today. Dunhill DSX Leon Live Leon Russell The triple-disc set was re- corded in Long in August of 1972. Backed by two organ and Russell's piano and vocals spark the fast- lively collection of rock most of it Russell's own material. Yet a three album set is a bit and one would have to be a real Russell ad- mirer to appreciate the record. STCO DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.
