Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD - Thursday, January 17, 1974 Singer Anne Murray plans change to more hip songs By MARY CAMPBELL AP Newsfeatnres Writer Anne Murray is in Uie process of changing from a girl next-door and singer of country and middle-of-tiie-road songs to sometiiing a little more hip. The Canadian singer would lilte to play to the kind of college audiences that Kris Kris-tofferson does and sing that kind of modem country, with freedom to mix in other styles. The present impression listeners have of her was created by two years with Glen Campbell on TV, some duet personal appearances and a duet album with him. "Last summer Glen asked me to go out on the road with him," she said. "I explained I can only ride on his coat-tails so long. I have to do my own thing. "I have my own band. We have to go out and do it, play clubs that are semi-hip, colleges and small halls that seat no more than 3,000 so you can put in a good sound system and people get their money's worth." HALL IMPORTANT There have been some mistakes. "I played Greensboro, N.C., in a place that seated 17,000. They told me it would be 6,000. Only 1,700 showed up. I found out later there was a 2,500-seat auditorium right next door which would have been perfect. That's the kind of thing you go through. "The guys in the band have stuck with me three years. The money hasn't been great. There are seven guys. They have faith that one day it is really going to happen if we continue not to compromise ourselves. Even if it doesn't, we are having a good time now, living day by day and counting our blessings." Miss Murray has one gold single. Snowbird. The single of Danny's Song sold 850,000. "The important thing is to get into the top 10, which that was. I don't need any more gold records; I've got one. Some people want to line their walls with them. Who needs that?" There was talk when Snowbird came out that it was a drug song. "With the image I'm trying to portray, maybe I should say that it is. But I know it is not a drug song. "Gene MacLellan was walking along a beach on Prince Edward Island in late fall. He saw snowbirds-snow buntings, round white, birds-on the beach. ANNE MURRAY "It conjured up a whole image to him. Gene had been in love a few times and thrown over. That is what the song is all about." The P.E.I, song-writer came up with another hit for Ocean with Put Your Hand in the Hand. "I was the first to record it. It was supposed to be my follow-up to Snowbird. But the powers that be didn't think it sounded like me. They had no idea what I sounded like. We wanted it to be the next single. They didn't. Another mistake. Born in Springhill, N.S,, Miss Murray taught physical education for a year on Prince Edward Island. "The summer of 1966, I auditioned for a TV show out of Halifax, a network show, a summer replacement. I had to make some money to buy a car. I sang mainly in the chorus. It had started in the late 1950s as a sing-along show. "By the time I got to it, it was into the folk rock thing, country too, variety with group singing. I got to do one solo and one duet. They were calling me to come over to Hear more clearly without irritating background noise. Zenith's new Directional Hearing Aid. If you find that much of the sound you hear is harsh, irritating noise, then our new Directional hearing aid, the "Royal D" could be just right for you. This comfortable aid brings you clear, rich sound at a pleasant level as it softens and reduces harsh unwanted background noise from the side and rear. Come in for a demonstration of the "Royal D" or any other aid from Zenith's line of more than 20 quality aids at no cost or obligation. Batteries for all makes of hearing aids.

They had a TV show I could do all year. "Show business seemed very insecure; teaching, you get your cheque every two weeks. I decided to give myself a year. "I got a little bored that year; the show was just horrible. The next summer I did the replacement show again. In the fall I decided to get out and learn something about clubs and concerts on the East Coast of Canada. "I got packed houses; people knew I was a Maritimer. I recorded an album on a budget Canadian label in 1968. It sold pretty well in the Maritime provinces." Recognition came gradually. "I started getting the odd call from Toronto to do national TV shows. In 1%9 I decided to find a record company with an association in the United SUtes. "Brian Akena, the original musical director of the summer TV show, had starved for two years in Toronto and tried to become a record producer. He and I went around to all the record companies. "He told me to remember I was the best singer in the world and he was the best producer, so we weren't going to be taken advantage of. They all said they'd give us $3,000 and have complete charge of production. "We walked into Capitol and by this time we were really getting heavy. We almost believe we were as good as we said. Paul White there told us, anything we want. "We did the Snowbird album. It cost $18,000. When they saw the bill they weren't happy but within eight months they were very happy." WONT LEAVE CANADA She still lives in Toronto although her first manager wanted her to move to Los Angeles. "I'm sure I'd be more of a success than I am because I'd be in the thick of things. But I'm not very much of a show business person. I refused to move and I will always refuse, I think." She parted amicably from that manager and now has Shep Gordon, who also manages Alice Cooper. Miss Murray love's to swim and her idea of an ideal vacation is on a Maritime shore, swimming, running and throwing a Frisbee. She is unmarried. "I haven't had enough time to get that kind of th ng together. Trying to get the rest of it together is taking enough of my time-and it's taking long enough." MISSILES NOT STOLEN BRUSSELS (Reuter) -NATO has denied reports that ground-to-air missiles were stolen from some of its military bases. Reports Wednesday said a number of missiles had disappeared from military bases in NATO territory. The report triggered a general alert by security forces in Western Europe.

Ads supporting the arts give businessmen value By JAMES NELSON TORONTO (CP) - Canadian businessmen are finding there is good advertising and public relations value in supporting the arts, says the businessman-president of the National Ballet of Canada. I. H. (Jock) McLeod, a partner in the management consultant firm of McKinsie and Co., said some firms are finding expenditures on the arts more productive than, say, on amateur or professional sport. Moreover, they have been awakened to the danger that if they don't support the arts, the big theatre and music companies will either fold up, or become state-run agencies with the costs borne by higher taxes. The recent danger of collapse of the Montreal Symphony heightened this feeling. "There is genuine value in getting behind the arts; it's an idea whose time has come," Photographer regarded as ^snow man^ BANFF, Alta. (CP) -Bruno Engler has become known in this Rocky Mountain ski area as the "snow man" and his "powers" are highly regarded by the local Chamber of Commerce. The Banff photographer first gained notoriety in the town a few years ago when the manager of a ski resort refused him a pass on the chairlift. Somewhat miffed, Mr. Engler told the manager, "okay, no ticket, no snow," and proceeded to perform an anti-snow dance. By February, grass was growing on the slopes and skiers were heading for whiter pastures. This year, the Banff Chamber of Commerce, faced with two snowless months and post-Christmas doldrums, sought Mr. Engler's more positive services. A torch-light ski parade was organized last Thursday after which Mr. Engler, dressed in abominable snowman garb topped by an 18th century Swiss mask of the evil spirit of winter, snow and wind, performed his "snow dance" twice for good measure. The white fluff upon which the town's winter livelihood depends began falling Saturday and stopped 48 hours and 38 inches later. BLAME ENERGY CRISIS WASHINGTON (AP) - The labor department reports an increase in the number of unemployed workers who blamed the energy crisis for the loss of their jobs. Workers filing for unemployment insurance benefits for the week ended Dec. 29 totalled 460,400 and included 64,000 who said they lost their jobs because of the fuel shortage. said Mr. McLeod. Andre Fortier, director of the Canada Council, warned in an interview last fall that if there isn't more private and business support of the arts, the government will have to take over. BUSINESS RESPONDS Mr. McLeod said the initial reaction of businessmen to this was: "He's got to be kidding." But the message was getting through and businessmen did not like government direction in any field. "There have been several developments," Mr. McLeod said. "First, Mr. ForUer's initiative. Then, the fact that many companies are finding that what have been thought attractive vehicles for advertising-such as sports-are not quite so attractive or are getting costly. "And there is also the reorientation of society towards less tangible, more attitudinal things-the environment, culture. The net result is a much greater responsiveness of business to the arts." IBM Canada sponsored a Western Canada tour by the National Ballet, in which the dancers played to almost 42,-500 people in five cities. For $30,000, IBM got a doublepage spread in each printed program, mention in all advertising and handbills, free seats for company or customer VIPs at opening nights' and personal appearances of ballet stars at IBM dinners or receptions. BOOSTED REVENUE The $30,000 enabled the National to tour in financial comfort. It came off the tour with $7,000 more revenue than it had expected. The Toronto Symphony for several years has recruited corporate sponsors for its winter concert series in Mas-sey Hall. The Canadian Opera Company has had corporate sponsorship for some new productions. ' Two cigarette firms-Du Maurier and Rothmans-advertise heavily in theatre programs. Du Maurier also helps finance major theatre projects and Rothmans sponsors souvenir programs with revenues going to the performing companies. Imperial Oil and Ford of Canada sponsored the National Ballet's performances last summer at Ontario Place on the Toronto waterfront. Ballet performances in Hamilton, Ont., have been sponsored by Dofasco and Hamilton Spectator. Mr. McLeod said arts organizations cannot sit back and wait for corporate money. MUST SELL PRODUCT "They have tended to fault business for not providing support. While it is true business has not provided much, it is also true that the arts have taken remarkably few initiatives to market their product. "They have taken the view that here we are, inherently good and true and pure, and business should give us something to keep us going. "They haven't done enough to make the business community aware of their needs, and to do so on some sort of a basis in which there is a quid pro quo. That's the whole thrust of sponsorship-not just going oiit with your hand out and saying, please fill it up. "Any arts organization in Canada today that has a good product and does a good marketing job can get business support." TV highlights THURSDAY MOVIE MUSICAL: "Camelot," Part 1, 6 p.m., Ch. 7.
