Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-11,Lethbridge, Alberta e —THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD — Friday^ Jknuary 11, 1974 Turntable topics Beatles individual albums popular TV highlights By BILL KUCHERAN John, Paul and Ringo It’s been almost 10 years since the Beatles first arrived in North America. Things have never Deen the same since, and in spite of the fact it’s over three years since they disbanded, their solo works still command great interest- this was especially true of their three latest individual albums. The most attention hns centered on Ringo Starr’s Ringo (Apple SWAL 3413). For the first time since the breakup, all four Beatles are on the same record (although they are not together on the same song). The record reflects Ringo’s easygoing style, from fast boogie*style rockers to catchy pop tunes. It’s a solid, pleasing record. After an inferior album (Sometime In New York City). John Lennon has bounced back with a good record in Mmd Games (Apple SW-3414) With his usual flair of the 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX avante-garde and his dedication to ‘message’ lyrics (often for Yoko), Lennon displays both solid rock and roll and smooth lighter material. The lack of a tight backing group (Lennon used studio musicians, and appeared to record the record quickly) is the album’s only real fault. Perhaps the best record among these is Band on the Run (Apple SO-3415) by Paul McCartney. Kis Wings group now consists of himself, wife Linda and guitarist I^nny Lame, as drummer Seiwell and guitarist McCullough left the group after a rumored row The smaller lineup helps McCartney as he combines his melodic ideas with solid rock rhythms, keeping generally crisp instrumentation. It is a fine album for Wings, who in-ctdently share the album cover with the Zoo Gang television actors, for whom they are writting their theme music. « « * Quadrophenia—The Who The originators of the rockopera again have produced a two-record, semi-theatrical set Completely written by Pete Townshend, Quad-raphenia (a pun on schizophrenia) is a probing into the life of a typical youthful member of the Mod cult — a youth culture that between 1963 and 1966 had many of England’s teens following the irends of flashy clothes, gaudy motor scooters, p«» pills, and rock groups (including the then new Who). The songs don’t follow a story line to the same extent as Tommy, but a 40 page booklet of photographs and a several paragraph confession reveals the situation as it involves the youthful protagonist The total effect is to give a perceptive insight into the central character’s emotions, and at the same time reveal the motivations of those who embraced the Mod cult. Musically, the material is elemental in style, with much of it strong hard rock easily adaptable to live performances As usual, the group’s members, particularly drummer Moon, perform admirably. The music alone may NOTICE Sanitary Landfill - Scale Oparation The City of Lethbridge will commence scale operations at the Sanitary Landfill January 24th, 1974, after which time ail refuse received at the Landfill will be weighed and subject to fee as established In By-Law 3188.

(RSO Records 23M 111) Can You Feel It — Lighthouse The nine members of Lighthouse, on the record, which is mainly straight rock ‘ ‘    azz influences, ngs and horns not be the group's best, but, taken as a whole, the set demonstrates that Townshend and the Who are master Ulents (Track MCA2-10004) ■ « « Brain Salad Surgery — Emerson, Lake and Palmer Emerson, Lake and Palmer are a group In a rut. After a brilliant first album, the main ingredients of their music — Emerson's flashy keyboard displays, their extensive use of synthasizer, their distinctive melodies and lyrics — bccame more standardized on each album. The new record is no different, and on top of this the general quality of the music, lyrics and production IS inferior. For those who enjoy the style of music, a much better record is Photos of Ghost (Manticore MC66668) by an Italian group called Premiata Fomeria Marconi (PFM). On all but one cut their lyrics are in English, written by lyricist Pete Sinfield. They adopt many different musical idioms "'rock, electronics, baroque, classical — into a mesh which often features short, one to two-minute segments in each melodic style. Vocally and instrumentally (they include flute, guitar, violin and keyboards) they give a well polished performance. (Manticore MD66669) * * • The Last Five Years—Rick Grech While he has been a musical companion of such stars as Clapton, Windwood and Baker, bassist Rick Grech (he also sings and plays violin) has never received as much recognition This is a shame, as the record, a collection of with pop and fuse their str: with their electric instrumentation into a smooth blend. Their polish vocally and instrumentally demonstrates they are a top-notch group, easily one of Canada’s best. (GRT Records 9230-1039) U.F.O.—Ron Davies If you’ve heard long John Baldry or David Bowie’s version of a song entitled It Ain’t Easy, then you’ve heard the work of Ron Davies. He includes this song on his album, which is a mixture of choppy, soul-gospel material and quiet, pop cuts. His John Fogerty - sounding voice and slide and acoustic guitar style suit the material well, and qualify the record as a good one. (A&M SP4400) Columbia Records — Canadian Artists Columbia, like some of the other record companies, has begun to increase its number of Canadian artists. On their True North label is Bruce Cockburn’s new l.p. Night Vision (TN 11). Cockburn tastefully combines foUc, rock and blues into a relaxing, unpretentious mixture. Highlighted by several acoustic guitar-instrumental cuts, Ni^ht Vision is a fine record. While not as accomplished as Cockburn, fellow True North artist Murray McLaughlan on his Dylan-styled Day to Day Dust (TN-14) has produced an enjoyable record. On the Columbia, label, Zylan, an Eastem-Canadian nine-man group has put out a solid l.p. in Rainbows, Dreams and Frantasies (ES-90235). The group includes four horn players and a powerfully voiced female lead singer, and together their treatment of their rock-jazz-blues forms is excellent. Country-rock fans would enjoy Bearfoot (ES-90134) whose country-tainted electric rock songs are quite well done. Rounding out the Columbia lineup are two albums; Roger Rodier’s Upon Velveatur (ES-90095) a pleasant record by the smootii voiced singer who offers some good folk-rock material, and Goodbye Mama (ES-90247) by Dave Nichol, which features the folksinger’s orchestrally-backed songs. Generally, while the quality of these records varies somewhat, they are all solid and professional ~ a good sign for Canadian music. FRIDAY MOVIE DRAMA: “HawaJI", 6:30 p.m.. Ch. ».

PARIS (Reuter) — Soviet cellist Mstislav Rostropovich played with two other world-famous musicians, pianist Wilhelm Kempff and violinist Yehudi Menuhin, in a concert Wednesday night to mark the Film director on trial for 25th anniversary of the International Music Council. A spokesman for the Salle Pleyel, where the concert was held, said: "We sold every one of the 2,400 seats and had to turn 200 other people away." At the concert, arranged by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), they played Beethoven’s Archduke Trio. Rostropovich, who had not played in the West since giving a concert in Paris in March, 1972, played Bach’s Fifth Suite at a recital in UNESCO headquarters here The cellist, who is thought to have had difficulty in arranging foreign concerts because of his friendship with Nobel Literature Prize winner Andrei Solzhenitsyn, is due to fly to London for a concert appearance there.

Blue died at St. Francis Memorial Hospital here Tuesday after a long illness. Funeral services were held Thursday. Blue often turned his raspy, booming voice on hapless callers, much to the delight of listeners. “Turn down your radio, you idiot,” he would tell a caller, whose radio was causing background noise problems for Blue’s broadcast. Blue was heard first on radio before the Second World War as a bridge tournament commentator. Before becoming a talk show host, he spent 27 years at radio stations in Mexico, Hollywood and here.
