By BILL KUCHERAN Bachman Turner Overdrive II Bachman Turner Overdrive Two hit singles from one album is virtual assurance of musical and for Bachman Turner Overdrive it could just be the beginning. The formed by ex- Guess Who star Randy his two and bassist C. F. rose out of the ashes of the unsuccessful Brave Belt group. Their first a strong rock and roll sold quite notably in the U.S. and England. The two singles now out and 'Let It speak well for the new album's solid basic with the catchy vocals and guitar work standing out. There even remains several songs on the album that also could very well be released as singles. The group seems to have its hand on the pulse of the times in music in regards to which can only bring them greater success. SRM For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night Caravan Caravan is another one of the outstanding English rock groups that never seem to receive the recognition they deserve. They are a five-man formed in Canterbury in 1968. Their musical style is such diverse elements as Beatlesque Traffic like jazz instrumentation resembling the Moody Blues and touches of folk and hard rock are relied upon. They use viola and flute as their main instrumental and their vocals are excellent. This latest album is- and it is a shame they are not as widely known as many lesser groups. XPS Wild Tales Graham Nash Although he did some excellent work with the it was not until the formation with the musical partnership with David Steve Stills and later Niel Young that Graham Nash became widely known. While none of their solo l.p.s have been able to match their classic collective work 'Deja some fine albums have been put and 'Wild Tales' is one of them. Driving pop- rock is combined with country style with both melodic structures and lyrics particularly good on this solid record. SD Tabernakel Jan Akkerman His guitar work with his a solo album with ex-Flash guitarist Pete and a record highlighting his earlier works have all helped promote the classical and progressive rock guitar styles of the Dutch guitarist. His new is devoted in large part to his appreciation of the lute and its music. Over half the songs are lute solos written by such Renaissance rnadrigalists as John Dowland and Thomas Morley. The electric guitar pieces written by Akkerman blend in strings and are very avente showing the influences of modern sitar music and modern symphonic music. It is a good but the harshness of the 16 century melody patterns takes getting used making this an album of somewhat limited audience appeal. SD Slow Dancer Box Skaggs When the Steve Miller Band first one of its most touted elements was rhythm guitarist Boz Skaggs. He left the group after two and since then his solo work has ranged from country to rock to blues. His newest album 'Slow Dancer' is almost exclusively a popish soul record. All the elements of the the subdued swift string backing choppy rhythms and even the vocal phrasings are very 'Mo-town' stylistically. For this brand of it is a somewhat above average album. KC Piano Man Billy Joel If Don McLean played he'd sound like Billy Joel. Joel's probing metaphoric lyrics play an important part in his which includes both straight folk and lighter pop- rock always highlighted by the piano playing. An but unexciting disc.
