Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE tETHBRIDtjE HERALD Thunday, June 28, 1973 Raft trip slow QUITO, Ecuador (Reuter) An international expedition try- ing to sail across the Pacific to Australia in three balsa rafts is being dogged by light winds and slow currents, radio reports said yesterday. Vital Alzar, leader of the 12-man expedition, is trying to prove that South American Indians sailed to Aus- tralia before the Spanish con- quest of South America. The ex- pedition, which left Ecuador in May, is 800 miles west of here. LABOR CUB CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST. N. EVENING ENTERTAINMENT IN THE CLUBROOMS Country Blues" "John Charles AND THE FUNKY FOUR" CABARET DANCE Friday, June 29th 9 to 1 a.m. MUSIC BY: "JOHN CHARLES AND THE FUNKY FOUR" COVER CHARGE PER PERSON ill Kucheran Turntable topics MARG OSBORNE And The Majesties TONIGHT THRU SAT. at the 733-13th St. N. NOTE Friday and Saturday MEMBERS ONLY GENTLE GIANT Philosophical lyrics, classic- ally-influenced instrumentation, electronic effects, 'concept' al- bums these are the quali- ties that have marked the mu- sic of such well-known groups as Pink Floyd, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and the Moody Blues. There are also several groups which play similar mu- sic but are not as widely known example, Exception, Gen- isis and Gentle Giant. A six- man group, three of whose members are brothers, Gentle Giant use guitar, violin, key- j boards, electronics and vocals most prominently. Their quiet- er and slower cuts are marked by Bach-like instrumentation and vocals that often interplay and overlap. The hard rock songs show offstriking melody lines and seething guitar work, as in their classic song 'The Wreck.' They have released j four albums: 'Gentle Giant (Vertigo 'Acquiring The Taste' (Vertigo Vel 'Three Friends' (Columbia KG 31649) and their new album (Columbia Best are 'Acquiring The Taste' and "Three Friends.' but all their works are very intriguing. This is an excellent group that certainly deserves more suc- cess than they have achieved to date. MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS Consisting of six writer-com- ics, the Monty Python team (like Jethro Tull, the Monty Python name refers to no one person) took England by storm with their TV show. Started in Forest fire hazard low in Alberta EDMONTON (CP) The forest fire hazard over most of Alberta is low to moderate and losses so far this year have been far below those of 1972 to this date, the provincial govern- ment reported today. The exceptions are in the Footner Lake and Fort McMur- ray areas of the north and northeast, where the hazard is high to extreme. So far this year, 281 fires have burned acres com- pared with 483 fires burning acres in the same 1972 period. Ninety per cent of the fires have been caused by man, the others by lightning. Four fires were burning in Alberta today, three controlled and one small one partially con- trolled 47 miles northeast of Fort McMurray. ISLAND AREA The total land area of the United Kingdom, excluding in- land water, is square miles. Something Good Is Going to happen to you'. Independence Day Celebration SONS of FREEDOM A ONE HOUR SPECIAL Direct from southern California's Knotts Berry Farm Special Guest William Daniels Star of the Broadway Play and Movie'1776' RICHARD ROBERTS Tttt Wofld Action TONIGHT AT P.M. CFCN-TV Ch. 13 MttA -0PM. ROfERTS PRCSetm' t Ml hour 1969, it now can be seen weekly on Ch. 7, Saturdays p.m. They have since branched out into stage shows (such as their hilarious performance in Calgary books and albums. While the first LP 'The Worst of Monty Python' (BBC REM 73M) is an English-only release, the other two 'Another Monty Python Album' (Chans ma AS 1040) and 'Monty Py- thon's Previous Album1 (Char- isma 1063) should be available in Canada. Consisting mostly of excerpts from their TV shows, their humor tends to be achieved by putting inane de- vices into normal situations, such as having a staid BBC broadcaster interviewing a man with three buttocks. If you appreciate satires of English life, or if you are just a comedy record fan, you owe yourself at least one Monty Python al- bum. LARKS' TONGUES IN ASPIC- KING CRIMSON One of the more progressive rock groups, King Crimson have been handicapped by their many line-up changes, caused some claim, by leader and gui- tararist Robert Pripp's alleg- ed dictatorship in handling the group. Now, the only original member, Fripp has working for instruments and sound systems one time child prodigy on violin David Cross, Fam- ily's John Wetton with bass and vocals, and ex-Yes drummer Bill Bruford. The new album is a creative effort, very percus- sive with the instrumentation, mainly guitar and violin, tend- ing towards short, dramatic purts. interspursed with the surging sound effects. Three of the six songs are instrumen- tals. It is a step beyond their earlier work, and a very good attempt at exploring a new mu- sical direction. Atlantic SD 7263 DALTREV ROGER DALT- REY The ego of the rock star is one of the most dominating forces in the record business- observe the large number of groups that have been split by members seeking solo careers. The Who, however, have main- tained a smart balance, with the members pursuing individ- ual interests (including al- bums) while keeping the group alive and strong. Lead singer Suffield range opened to ranchers SUFFIELD (CP) The fed- eral government has made ar- rangements to permit ranchers in this southeastern Alberta dis- trict to use acres of the Suffield range for pasture pur- poses starting July 1, but army training on the base will not be affected. Col. Monty Wiseman, com- mander of Canadian Forces Base Suffield, said the decision to open the range to ranchers will not disrupt the British army training program being conducted on the base. Defenca Minister James Richardson, who announced the decision in Ottawa today, said the purpose is to alleviate the pasture problems caused by se- vere drought conditions throughout southeastern Alber- ta. About cattle are expect- ed to graze in the area. Roger DaRrey's LP offers a slower, more pop vehical than his Who work. He is aided on the album by several mem- bers of Argent, and his songs are written by a professional songwriting team. The tunes are mostly ballad types, the in- strumentation varying between simple rock types to large or- chestral arrangements. The al- bum, slightly above average, shows off Daltrey's strong voice, but is not up to the stan- dards of his Who work. MCA-328 LEAVING YOU FREE CLAIRE LAWRENCE Claire Lawrence will be fair- ly well known as the flute and sax player from Chilliwack. His solo album holds a collection of country rock, hard rock and free-tern jazz songs, all of which he composed. His sax, finite and vocals are solidly backed by the studio musicians. 'Leaving You Free' is a very enjoyable record by one of Can- ada's more talented artists. A M Haida HL-5103 FOR REAL RUEBEN AND THE JETS The albums of Frank Zappa and his Mothers of Invention have helped to greatly influ- ence rock music. Among these albums was one called 'Cruising With Reuben and the Jets' released in 1968, which was a take off on 50's era rock music. Now, under Zappa's pro- duction, an eight man L.A. group (including ex-Mother Motorhead has tak- en the Rueben name and the spirit behind it. They perform slow songs in the Dion and the Belmonts tradition, along with some faster, Chuck Berry-style songs. At times they become a bit corny, but their material is well put together and features some excellent guitar work. 'For Real' is one of the better attempts of capturing the fif- ties spirit for a seventies au- dience. Mercury SRM 1-659 COSMIC COWBOY SOUVENIR -MICHAEL MURPHY...... 'Geronimo's re- leased last year, presented the fresh country-rock talents of singer-guitarist Michael Mur- phy. The new album continues in the same vain. Not as good as the first album (for instance there are only nine songs, com- pared to the other record's it remains a fairly pleasant blend of country and rock material. AM SP 4388 FATHERS AND SONS The album is a two-record set (one record is re- corded and originally released in 1969. It's strictly blues, fea- turing Muddy Waters backed by such stars as Otis Span, Paul Butterfield, and Michael Bloom- field. The arrangements are authentic and done in simple style. Those who like the early work of the blues greats should like this album. Chess 9033-50033 FIRST BASE BABE RUTH Babe Ruth is a five man Eng- lish group. With the guitar and piano standing out their six songs range from medium and hard rock to Frank Zappa's 'King Kong.' While most of the material is done well, an over- all lack of variation distracts from an otherwise acceptable LP. Harvest SW-lllal PATHFINDER BEGGARS OPERA. I 'Pathfinder' is the third LP by Beggars Opera, a five-man group, and it consists of pop rock and hard rock material. They create a good amount of interesting material, but this is balanced by some poorly writ- ten songs, leaving the album with a rating of average. VERTIGO 630-073 LIFE AND TIMES CROCE Jim Croce is best known for Ms single 'You Don't Mess Around With Jim.' This, his second album, is passable, with his Bobby Goldsborough like voice and acoustic guitar set to standard folk arrange- ments, and sentimental pop cuts. ABC Dunhill ABCS-769 DOREME FASOL LATIDO HAWKWIND Hawkwind is an English group combining competitive hard rock and simple acoustic songs with a great deal of elec- tronic 'sci-fi' noises. They have been compared to Pink Floyd, but as they lack any sort of melodic feeling, they can, only be classed as boring.
