Bill Kucheran Turntable topics WIND OF CHANGE PETER FRAMPTON (A and M SP A charier member of Humble Pie, guitarist Peter Frampton split from the scu- cessful group shortly afto- the 'Rockin' The Fillmore' album because their hard rock was not the kind of music he wanted SEE YOUR ITRAVEL AGENTI FOR OF EUROPE lo play. His desire for quieter, more melodic music is readily apparent on lliis, his first solo album. Although he shows his hard rock roots on 'Jumping Jack Flash1 (the only non- Frampton song on Ihe album) and several other songs, even on these tunes the Instrumenta- tions are exact and Ihe lyrics decipherable. Combining these with the album's softer cuts, Frampton's cleaned up, slowed down rock, augmented by his strong guitar and good vocals, make this a line album. AMBUSH MARC BENNO (A and M SP Since his two solo albums and his two Asylum Choir IP'S with Leon Russell, Marc Bernio has gathered a fair amount of at- tention in the rock world. His latest album, is a mostly blues effort, with notice- able rock influences. The reo ord has a style and sound simi- lar to that of rhythm and blues veteran J. J.

It's a simple, choppy blues style, and Benno's experienced backup men do their jobs well. This al- bum is really only for the rhythm and blues fan, but for this audience it should be avidly received. GERONIMO'S CADILLAC MICHAEL MURPHY (A and M SP A Texan, Michael Murphy comes Irom an area of the U.S. close enough to the Mississippi south to have pro- duced more than its share of blues musicians (eg. Johnny But it is also part of the pioneer west of the U.S.A., and it's a musical heritage from these times that marks the music of Michael Murphy. Only slight shades of rock in- fluence a basically country-folk effort. Murphy's wistfull voice fits the melancholy lyrics per- fectly, and the instrumentation, mostly piano, or acoustic or electric guitar, Is excellent, being as simple or as strong as each song demands. With the increased attention being given to country-rock artiste, Mur-, phy's album must rate very booh for its music and PERFORMERS OFF SCREEN-Bespectacled Jane Fonda, Oscar-winning actress, wails for her Paris-bound plane at London's Heathrow Airport as boscrny Raquel Welch exits, right, from a itudio in the British capital after recording for a TV sports program. Miss Fonda, onti-Vietnom war campaigner, was lo meet a North Vietnamese delegation in the French capita! and then ;s its pure country heritage. HOME GROWN BOOKER T. and PRISCILLA (A and M SP Booker T. Jones has led the famous M.G.s and has appeared on many albums by other artists. Since his mar- riage to singer PriscUla Cool- idge, he has become another one of the growing number of artists to record with their spouses. 'Home Grown1 Is one of the more successful of these husband and wife offerings. It's soul with the pain of blues and the Innocence of folk music, done in a way few artists ex- cept for the likes of an Otis Redding can produce. Booker T.'s organ, guitar and sax play- ing are soul Influenced, but never too cliched like on many Motown products. Priscilla's voice has a depth of sorrowful feeling that only some of the all lime great blues singers can better. Soul music should idealy reflect the soul this is where 'Home Grown' succeeds with lls painful and honest feelings soul music at its best. _ SKYLARK (C a p 11 o Skylark is a four-man group consisting of two lead vocalists (one male, one fe- a keyboard man and a tV-ummer. They are backed by several studio musicians, and the album is produced by 'Eirik the Norwegian' Wang- Ixrg, who engineered Paul and Linda McCartney's "Ram" Their sound is a light pop-rock mixture a sort of hsavy- ;ounding Carpenters. But al- though their music is well pro- duced, its lack of definitive style (too light for the rock and roll market, too heavy for the popular field) greatly handi- caps the group.

Miss Welch said that her problems were due to "a legal situation Involving an incident has nothing whatsoever to do with Mr. Mason." She would not elaborate. But, the star said, she could not believe the veteran British actor had described her as "the most selfish, ill-mannered, in- considerate actress that I've ever had the displeasure of working reported by one British newspaper from Nice. They have been working there shooting The Last of Sheila. HOLLYWOOD (Reuter) Carl Foreman, a once-black- listed Hollywood film director now billed as a star attraction at a film festival here, believes United States film festivals are ignoring local directors. Foreman's British-made Young Winston was the pre- miere film at the second Los Angeles Film Festival. U.S. film festivals are set up to bring the work of foreign film-makers to the U.S. public, he said in an interview. "That's fine. Let us do that. But there is not enough respect being paid to the work of Hollywood film- makers Young Winston, a film based on the early life of Sir Winston Churchill, stars Robert Shaw and Simon Ward. Foreman was personally se- lected by Churchill to produce the film of his early life. He said Churchill asked to be por- trayed "warts and all" and the only restriction was that his role should be played by an Englishman. Foreman said he had long been an advocate of some form of government support for the United States film industry. Biography films staging comeback Corner 13th St. and 2nd Ave. N.

The film biography was a Hollywood staple for 30 years, with such stars as George Ar- liss, Paul Muni and Spencer Tracy portraying famous fig- ures. But such films went into a decline when the industry fell into Its economic decline. Rea- sons: 1. Biographies usually require costumes, big sets and crowd scenes, which the stuios can ill afford. 2. Producers believed that young movie-goers, who com- prise the major part of the au- dience, cared naught about his- tory and yearned for "now" films. THINKING CHANGES That thinking has changed. Most of the "now" flicks have bombed, while such biographies as Funny Girl and Patton have made millions. Producers have gotten the message, and Ihesc subjects are in release or pro- duction: Lady Sings the Blues, Diana Ross as Ihe late songstress Bil- lin Holliday. The Vnlachi Papers, Mafia life, starring Charles Bronson. McArthur. the general's story filmed by the producer of Fat- ten. Dillinger. vet another treat- ment o( the midwest desperado.

Producer-writer Ctrl Foreman was In Hollywood recently from his London base, and he gave some insight into the resurgence of the move bi- ography. "1 think there Is a revived in- terest in history on the part of the movie he said. "The reason, I "believe, is that the present is so unpleasant. 'People enjoy going back to other eras when life was more pleasant and heroic." PHOTOGRAPHER DIES DETROIT (AP) R.
