The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 19, Rock music duo are big success Try Baton You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION MAICO SMTH-JONES HEARING MO SERVICE MPtEY OPTICAL 618 3rd Ave. S. Phone 32B-5447 From bass to soprano Ivan Rebroff whose voices range from bass to soprano, brings to the concert stage the songs and culture of Russia his parents fled during the revolution. He is main- taining a-musical tradition that has all but died in the Soviet Union of today. By IAIN MACLEOD TORONTO (CP) Jim Seals has had a thing about shabby caps since a little boy gave him one eight years ago. Jim wore it until it fell to bits. He has another one now and a supply for the rest of his life. His music too, like his ever- becapped appearance, is un- mistakable. Jim is one half of Seals and Crofts, one of North Amer- ica's fastest-rising rock music duos whose remarkable ver- satility as singers, song- writers and instrumentalists has earmarked them as ma- jor contributors to rock music in years to come. But already their successes have been phenomenal. Since 1968, when Jim and his high- school buddy Dash Crofts be- gan performing under their own names after more than a decade of playing rock 'n' roll with other bands, the duo has been awarded two gold al- bums for million-dollar sales and two platinum albums for million-record sales. Their fifth album, Diamond Girl, also looks headed for an award. One unusual aspect of their songwriting is their adherence to the Baha'i faith, the prin- ciples of which are spiritual unity and preparation for a wondrous after-life.

"It also helps us personally, espe- cially when we're under the pressures of touring and per- forming. We just keep our eye on the eye of the hurricane and we get through the tur- moil." Seals and Crofts recently gave a much-awaited concert here, taking to the stage only minutes after the new year had rolled around. Before more than celebrating fans, they delivered a memo- rable performance, high- lighted by their two big hits of 1973, Summer Breeze and Dia- mond Girl. Both were chart- toppers in Canada during the year. Moreover, .they demonstra- ted their versatile abilities as instrumentalists: Crofts play- ing electric mandolin and pi- ano and Seals strumming gui- tar, blowing jazzy tenor saxo- phone and playing virtuoso country fiddle. Both .Seals and Crofts have deep roots in music. Seals, 31, also a Texan, was playing fid- dle and guitar at the age of five and by the time he was nine had won the Texas state fiddle championship. Soon afterwards he began to play with local country music bands. Crofts started out on piano when he was four and, en- couraged by his mother, stud- ied the classics' for several years. As a teen-ager in- fluenced by rhythm 'n' blues, he picked up the drums al- though it was not until the mid-1960s that he began to play the mandolin, his main instrument. During their school years together, the two formed sev- eral bands and were quick to realize that music was to be their career. NAs teen-agers, they headed west to Califor- nia and quickly found fame and fortune when they joined a group called The Champs. In 1958 a single, Tequila, was cut and it sold more than six million copies. Tequila re- mains today one of the big- gest-selling singles in rock's history. The two youngsters, one 15, the other 17, were suddenly pushed into the limelight. The next seven years were spent riding the crest of the wave until The Champs finally fad- ed in the mid 1960s. At the same time, Jim and Dash were introduced to the Baha'i faith and quickly realized there was more to life than reckless extravagance. "We had spent all those years on the road, making phenomenal amounts of money, most of which we never saw and the rest of which we foolishly Jim recalled. But another banrJV the Dawnbreakers, later to become the Baha'is, was put together, enjoying moderate success until 1968 when Jim and Dash, with clear impressions of the mu- sic they wanted to write and the sound they wanted to pro- duce, started out under their own names, backed by a small handpicked band of mu- sicians CUT OWN NICHE Since the change, the two feel they have come up with their finest work to date, cut- ting a niche for themselves in the highly-competitive world of rock music. The key to their success has been their long personal and musical relationship. "We've reached a stage Dash said, "when we couldn't work apart. Musi- cally, we know each other's minds and on stage and in the recording studio that makes for great teamwork." As veterans of making their 'careers in rock music, Jim and Dash know what to do with their money. Aside from ing to launch their own record label and build a stu- dio to record their own and other artists' records, the two are also wealthy landowners. Money has been invested in livestock and grain, partly in the belief that one day, ac- cording to the Baha'i teach- ings, there is to be a great famine. Eventually they hope to move their families from their present base in Los An- geles and build up a farm on their land, making music and preparing for the second world. VIOLIN FOR SALE SEOUL (Reuter) A South Korean cattle farmer has put up for sale a violin which he says is a Stradivarius bearing the signatures of Antonio Vi- valdi and Nicolo Paganini, a newspaper reports. Pu Chung- won, 29, is asking million for the violin, the daily Kyunghyang Shinmoon says. He says he inherited the violin from his grandfather who ob- tained it in 1892 from a French missionary in exchange for five pieces of old Korean pottery.

Grammy nominations announced LOS ANGELES (AP) Nominations for the music in- dustry's Grammy awards were disclosed Thursday, and among the songs nominated for record of the year was one by singer Jim Croce, who died in an airplane crash. The nomination for the song Bad, Bad Leroy Brown was one of the rare posthumous nominations made in the 16 years of awards by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The other nominees for record of the year, announced by singer Andy Williams in a news conference at the Hollywood Palladium, were Behind Closed Doors, per- formed by Charlie Rich; Kill- ing Me Softly with His Song, sung by Roberta Flack; You are the Sunshine of My Life, written and sung by Stevie Wonder, and You're So Vain, written and sung, by Carly Simon. Miss Flack, Wonder and Rich figured in several other categories of nominations, including album of the year, in which the nominees were Behind Closed Doors by Rich; The Divine Miss M, by Bette Midler; Innervisions, by Wonder; Killing Me Softly with His Song, by Miss Flack, and There Goes Simon, by Paul Simon. The winners for 1973 will be announced on a television special program scheduled for March 2. Jay Cooper, president of the Los Angeles chapter, noted that the year's nominations showed a trend to no longer classify music in tight categories such as country and Western or rhythm and blues.
