Revenue Minister Ron Basford is reviewing the issue. But industry sources say theatre managers and per- forming arts producers are fighting stiffening regulations governing taxes at both the federal and provincial level, at least in Ontario. There have been warnings given Ontario theatres that an exemption from a provincial 10-per-cent sales tax on ticket prices is subject to review. The exemption has been granted in the past on shows which employ Canadian ac- tors, musicians and other per- formers. Bruce Corder, deputy direc- tor-general of the National Arts Centre here, said the ex- emption is granted in.each case by a letter from the provincial government. But occasionally, the letters warn that the exemptions could be discontinued. If the exemption is dropped, ticket prices would go up an- other- 10 per cent. Corder said Wednesday the 15-per-cent withholding tax on remuneration to foreign shows could ultimately mean a 15-percent increase in ticket prices. In another way, theatrical productions are fighting tax imposts by both the federal and provincial governments. 0 sccentre. Cocoa Beach, MiarniPleach. Nassau In Ihe Bahamas.

Sell goods to aid hungry By GRACE LICHTENSTEIN New York Times Service NEW YORK Has rock V roll become rock 'n' recession? Yes, say concert promoters, booking agents, managers and some music fans. No, say record companies and stores. While those involved in arranging live performances of rock acts are singing the blues, record companies have not yet heard any really sour notes, from their sales departments, .a. survey of the music business indicates. The difference can probably be explained through prices and impulse buying. Faced with a smaller budget, a music fan is more likely to buy a record, which can be played over and over, than spend twice as much on a concert. "Historically, people have always used entertainment as an escape from financial said Phil Walden, who both heads Capricorn Records in Macon, Ga.. and manages such acts as the Allman Brothers. But he added that although buyers still seemed willing to buy records "the cheapest form of entertainment you can get" the concert market was "soft." A sampling of club owners and booking agents across the country suggests that audiences for most concerts have been down as much as 25 per cent, that performers are signing for smaller advance guarantees on concert dates, that more and more big acts are teaming up as co-headliners rather than touring on their own and that some groups are planning to hit smaller hajls rather than risk appearing before half-empty bigger houses. "Elton could still sell out the Grand said Barry Fey, a Denver promoter, "but the middle groups are hurting." One reason is that fans are becoming more selective. Students on several campuses said they were saving their money for superstars these days while passing up less popular groups. "Seeing Dylan is.a once-in- a-lifetime ex- plained Fred Speck of the University of Illinois. "To be honest, I would have paid to see him but not the se- cond time." Even those like Candle McGraw of the University of California at Las Angeles, with a month to spend ,on music are feeling the pinch. "I'm reducing my concerts to people I'm very, very fond she said. Moreover, many music lovers simply don't have that kind of spending money any more. "I can't eat a said Vicki Shelton of Grambling College in Louisiana. The outlook for 1975 is un- certain. A spokesman for Columbia Records says the company envisions continuing strong album sales. But the concert scene for the late winter and spring looks bleak.
