Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, February 15, 1974 Turntable topics New SantanaVgroup back with record album Drinks for ticket buyers Blonde Carol Channing, right, passes out champagne Wednesday in the lobby of the Palace Theatre, where she is starring in the Broadway musical The champagne was given to ticket buyers in what was billed as a pre-Valentine Day stunt. 50 years in show business O'Connor sisters celebrate TORONTO (CP) When you talk to the O'Connor Sisters about their 50th anniversary in show business, the figures become a bit confused. It was actually in 1910 that the first four of them went on the vaudeville stage. Then there were six, the only six real sisters ever to appear on the stage together. Then a trio. And now there are four. They're retired now, in their suburban Toronto home which is at least 120 years old. But they came back to the stage of Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre for a "surprise party" to mark 50 yean hi show business. The surprise party was well scripted, with other veterans of the great days of vaudeville in Canada and the U.S. But the best parts of the show, to be OLDTIME MODERN DANCE SATURDAY, FEB. 16th-8 p.m. at the FRIENDSHIP CENTRE 324 4th St. S.

Altogether there were seven O'Connor sisters who played the vaudeville circuits of the 1910s and 1920s from New York to Chicago and south to Nashville. As the older girls got married and retired from show business, the younger ones took over. The ladies won't tell their ages now. They are clearly in their late 60s and 70s. On the TV show, Geraldine, Kathleen, Madeleine and Vera O'Connor are joined by Horace Lapp, pianist and orchestra conductor, Rummy Bishop, who did a brother act with Joey Bishop, and Howard Roth, billed in bis heyday as The Doctor of Sunshine. Geraldine says she never was in show business, but she joins in the TV show. Snake hazard LA PAZ (Reuter) Victims of flooding in Bolivia are facing a new hazard poisonous snakes. A Bolivian health ministry spokesman said the snakes, of various species, have proliferated in the tropical northwestern province of Beni. The province was the hardest bit area of Bolvia's worst flooding in 50 years, which has taken at least 26 lives. By BILL KUCHERAN Welcome Santana Carlos Santana's group is back again with another solid album. They have undergone extensive personnel changes, having lost guitarist Neal Scbon, bassist Tom Rutly, and organist Greg Rolie. To make up for this they have acquired the keyboard team of Richard Kermode and Tom Coster, along with vocal help from jazz singer Leon Thomas. The record extends the smooth, ethereal mood of 'Caravanserai', and adds to it a taste of jazz. The dual keyboards are very effective, while Thomas's harsh vocals, although good, are not really suited to the group. They remain highly percussive, and occasional sax and flute segments add to the jazz atmosphere. As for Carlos Santana himself, now the group's only guitarist, he remains mostly laid back, but does provide several of his patented solos. Fans of Santana should be pleased with this quality album. (Columbia Air Cut Curved Air England's Curved Air is a popular band in Canada, and this album should serve to increase its popularity. A tight group, the rhythmic combination of drums, bass and guitar, Sonja Kristina's smooth vocals, and Eddie Job- son's keyboards, violin and fine synthisizer playing mixing nicely. Their creative rhythmic and melodic patterns embraces folk, hard rock and psychadeilic rock. It's a good album by this creative group. (Warner Bros. WS4507) Spectrum Billy Cobham When the mixing of jazz and rock into a free-form style is attempted, all too often the result is a sorry cacophony. Happily, this is not so on percussionist Billy Cobham's dynamic album. It combines modern jazz, rock and electronic effects, with Hendrix-sounding guitar work, and piano and moog overlaying the pulsating bass and drums. Cobham's drumming, a charging, rolling style, is complimented with the unique effects of moog and drum combinations. Rarely is an album as creative and still as competent as this one. (Atlantic SD Renaissance A four-piece group from England, Renaissance draws on the musical worlds of the classics, English folk music, and modern pop and electronic rock forms. Keyboards are most dominant in the complex, extended arrangements, and occasional use of string orchestrations are provided. Their music is highlighted by Annie Haslam's fine, high, clear voice, and by the brilliant keyboard work of John Tout, who is clearly one of the best keyboard artists in rock today. Their last two albums, 'Prolouge' (Sovereign SMAS 11116) and 'Ashes Are Burning' (Sovereign ST-1121G) are both excellent. In addition, a former member of Renaissance, Jim McCarty, has formed his own group. Shoot, and released an album, 'On The Frontier' (EMI Records SMAS Shoot are more pop-blues-rock in orientation, and their fresh material is marked by good vocals, resulting in a fairly good album. Tattoo Rory Gallagher With Eric Clapton in virtual retirement, many have proclaimed the Irish former member, of Taste as Rock's best guitarist. his third album, includes fast, driving rock cuts, and both harsh and soft 12 bar blues and jazz variations. Gallagher uses a minimum of backing to reveal the full force of his guitar work, mostly complex rhythm chord patterns, but with a number of forceful solos. Both vocally and instrumentally he resembles Clapton, and while he may not be at Clapton's level yet, 'Tattoo' reveals be is not far from it. (Polydor 2383 230) Journey's End Matthew Fisher When he was with Procol Harum, Matthew Fisher's organ work became one of the group's distinguishing features, such as on 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale'. Subdued organ and piano provide the major backing to Fisher's vocals on this album, with drums, bass and guitar also used. Unlike the weighty Procol Harum material, the l.p. is composed of light, melodic pop-rock cuts, which are done quite well, resulting in a pleasing record. (RCA Victor APLI-0195) The Roots Of America's Music Vol. I Rock music is based on many diverse musical forms, few of which the average listener is clearly familiar with. Released in 1968, this two record set covers some of the artists from Arhoolie, a small blues-folk record label. Blues, gospel, jazz, country, folk and cajun forms are all represented by artists who are the honest representatives of their trade men like Black Ace, Juke Boy Bonner or Mainer's Mountaineers, who still play for pleasure in the backwoods of the southern U.S.A. Although the bulk of the material was recorded in the early sixties, the quality is acceptable, and it should be noted excellent liner notes and biographical material is provided. It's a shame contractual agreements and record company greed keep a truly authoritative look at the roots of rock music (folk, blues, Tin Pan Alley, etc.) from coming to pass, but for now musicologists should be satisfied with this album.
