Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Talent scout combs clubs for would-be rock stars NEW YORK (AP) Aon Purtill can't sing or write mu- sic. But she's a good listener and every day that talent deter- mines the future of would-be rock starts. Land-freeze legislation urged at Coleman hearing COLEMAN (CP) Legisal- tion that would freeze the use of all privately owned farm and ranch land in Alberta was suggested 'to the Environment Conservation Authority Tues- day in a brief to its land use and resource development hearings. Charlie Russell, son of Al- berta author Andy Russell, said the legislation would mean that commercial developments such as housing, recreation or indus- trial projects would be prohib- ited on farm and ranch land. He bad recently learned that land adjacent to bis ranch land has been approved for subidivi- sion. His father presented a brief on behalf of the Foothills Pro- tective Association which cri- ticized resource industries for creating erosion, fouling streams and creating wasteful scars. He said the public should be informed of developments, pri- vate and public, which affect the qualities of water, air and soil.

Annie, as she Is called by her colleagues at Etektra Records, is head of the firm's East Coast Artist and Repertoire ment. To laymen she's a talent scout. She's one of the record industry's highest-ranking women. It is her job to comb wich Village night spots, travel to a dozen cities a year to audi- tion artists and coddle the musi- cians already signed and listen to more than tapes a year. Many of the tapes come from agents, but most come from kids. What she is looking for is a good voice, a good song and an intangible magic. For the most part what she gets is several hundred imitation Neil Youngs and Leonard Cohens, a few would-be rockers who are ter- rible beyond belief and a bunch who are good but not great. Everyone who submits a tape gets at least a form letter back. About one-third get a few lines of criticism or advice. Here's an example, a tape from David R. McKesson of Long Beach, Calif. In the first song, Annie hears a clear, melodic voice and a song that rhymes a little too obviously. "Voice not bad, song me- she notes. The second song reveals an entirely different voice. "Neil she said, iden- tifying the familiar high- pitched, nasal sound of the Ca- nadian superstar who sang with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The words are in the style of song- writer Leonard Cohen of Mon- treal. The third is even more like Young, only worse. "I'll probably write and ten him, 'Your influences are show- ing. Get away from Neil Young and Leonard Cohen. Don't try to write a song like the other songs.'" Occasionally something hap- pens that makes it all worth- while. In 1971 Annie went to the Vil- lage Gate to hear Harry Chapin, a film-maker turned singer. After hearing Chapin and his group, she insisted that Jack Holzman, the Elektra president, come down. At first he wasn't impressed, but Annie persisted. Elektra signed Chapin, and his first album with the song, Taxi, sold copies. She does not get a per- centage but earns a salary of less than a year and has a generous expense account. PICASSO STOLEN AUSTIN, Tex..

New theatre opens without a hitch Marijuana charge thrown out NEW ORLEANS (AP) A marijuana possession charge against singer Jaye P. Morgan was dismissed here. Miss Morgan and Peter Don- ald were arrested March 14, 1972, as they boarded an sir- plane at New Orleans Inter- national Airport after a weap- ons check of Donald's luggage produced two ounces of mari- juana. Court records say police then searched Miss Morgan's lug- gage and found a plastic bottle containing a half-ounce of mari- juana. The charge against Miss Mor- gan was dismissed when Judge Charles Gaudin ruled that the evidence found in her luggage was inadmissable since it re- sulted from a search conducted without a warrant or probable cause. Donald, her manager, pleaded guilty to possession of mari- juana. He was fined and given a 30-day suspended sen- tence. LONDON (AP) Oscar-win- ning movie star Liza Minelli was waiting at Heathrow Air- port yesterday when her half- sister, Lorna Luft, flew in for a week's visit. Both are daughters of the late Judy Garland. Liza darted out from behind a pillar to clasp her 20-year-old half-sister in her arms. MANILA (AP) Van Cli- burn, the Texas pianist, has be- come the object of an officially- blessed minicult on Ms first visit to the Philippines. Manila's government-guided press has been hailing Cliburn's arrival for a month and radio stations have been playing ex- cerpts from the pianist's reper- toire to promote his concerts here Thursday and Saturday. Local theatres have adver- tised to patrons they will play Cliburn records at intermission. NIAGARA On The-LAKE, Ont. (CP) As smoothly and colorfully as the opening scene in a George Bernard Shaw play, the bright new Shaw Festival theatre was officially opened with 832 invited guests filling its seats. Health checks for workers TORONTO (CP) Additional health checks have been given to employees of two Toronto ho- tels who will serve food and drink to the royal party during the Queen's visit later this month, it was learned today. City health regulations re- quire those preparing food in hotels or restaurants to have a chest x-ray every two years. But, at the request of the fed- eral royal tour co-ordinator, ad- ditional tests have been given food handlers at the Royal York and the Four Seasons-Sheraton Hotels. As well as x-rays, they were given mouth and nose swab tests. Although the first sod was turned only 14 months ago and the carpets were still being laid as the actors arrived for rehearsals, the opening night went without a hitch as the cur- tain rose on Shaw's popular comedy You Never Can Tell, starring veteran British actor Stanley Holloway and the theatre's artistic director, Pax- ton Whitehead. Among the guests was Pre- mier William Davis who was presented with a plaque in ap- preciation for Ontario's grant toward capital costs of the ground-hugging building, first permanent home for the 12-year-old company. "Without the grant this new theatre project would never have gotten off the said festival president Calvin Rand in making the presenta- tion. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be guests for a special performance by the company, only professional group in the world dedicated to the works of George Bernard Shaw, on June 28 during an offi- cial visit to Canada.

"There is talent and plenty of fresh material to create with in he said in an interview. "There are composers, designers and people I want to work with. There are all kinds of things to be done.' Part of the attraction for Macdonald is the character of Canadian dancers. "I think there are very good people in he said. "It is hard to analyse, except that Canadians are a lean people the North, which means they have a high energy level. Coupled with the Canadian dancer's physique is the Brit- ish-American heritage which imparts poise particularly suited for dance, he said. HERITAGE HELPS "Canadians have a kind of pure British-orientated train- ing and American energy. The American push; the re- sponse to great for dancing, and the refinement and dignity that comes from British ballet. They come to- gether very well in the Cana- dian dancer." Macdonald has plans to put Canadian talent into action this summer. He is preparing two new works for a summer festival at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa which he hopes "will be different and provocative." WELL QUALIFIED Few Canadians are more qualified for the task of ex- ploiting Canada's dance tal- ent and material. Brian Mac- donald's credentials are im- pressive. A senior award from the" Canada Council enabled him to study abroad, which in turn led to opportunities to choreo- graph in the United States and Europe. Some of the ballet com- panies Macdonald has worked with include the Norwegian Ballet, the Royal Swedish Ballet, the Royal Danish Bal- let, The National Baliet of Holland, Ballet Contemporain of France, Deutsche Oner Berlin, the Harkness Ballet in New York and the Batsheva Company of Israel.
