Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta e-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-WcdMWtey, October 30, 1974 Still cutting hit records Top song-writer helps new talent PAUL ANKA, RIGHT, WORKS ON SONG WITH ROOKIE TORONTO (CP) Seventeen years ago, a young song writer from Ottawa pushed his way into the offices of recording studios. Paul Anka was only 15 at the time, but his gumption paid off by carrying the beautiful tune Diana to millions of listeners. Anka is still cutting hit records and appear- ing regularly in major entertainment capitals and today he is using his success to help new talent. One such talent is Don Goodwin of Aspen, Colo., who abandoned university law studies to try his luck in show business. In just over a year, under Anka's guidance, he has put three singles on the AM radio play lists and recorded his first album. Oddly enough, the single recordings, all old Anka tunes, have done well in Canada but .have virtually been ig- nored in the United States. Anka, on the other hand, had to look to the U.S. for his big break. Goodwin's career was launched when a family friend who booked per- formers for a Las Vegas club arranged an audi- tion for him in a small lounge. Anka stopped by to listen and signed him on the spot to a six- month 'option period. Within two .weeks, Goodwin was laying down demonstration tapes. "The thing I found refreshing about Don is the fact that he is unusual in today's market in that his natural kind of sound is Anka said in a tele- phone interview from Las Vegas. "He is very, very eager to work and listen. He's the kind of fellow I think there is a need for in enter- tainment." Goodwin's new manager told him to go back to Aspen and get a "I'll call on you when I need you." "I was pretty op- timistic about Goodwin said. "I didn't think it would be long before he called me. But I received no word from him for the whole six months of the option and that made me worry." With just days remaining in the option, Anka did call to summon the young .singer to a recording studio. It was Sep- tember, 1973. "At the time Mr. Anka called me I was auditioning for a job as a singing waiter in a Goodwin re- called. "I couldn't have taken that job anyway. You had to be 21." Goodwin turned 21 in February of this year, but appears several years younger. The slightly-built singer still seems slightly amazed when approached for an autograph. His boyish voice is most at home with the soft ballads he prefers. He has had no formal vocal training. Goodwin said his greatest following now is a mixture of young girls and older folk, possibly because "I'm not singing about being back on the-road again, social disasters, genera- tion gaps or strange sex- ual fantasies." But the limited following does not concern him. "For the longest Frank Sinatra appealed only to bobby- soxers. Later on, he gained a wide following with his own generation. "I think in time my generation will come to appreciate me." Anka was asked why Goodwin seems to be finding a market in Canada .that doesn't ex- ist in the U.S. "I think the Canadian content regulations have a lot to do with he said. Goodwin's tunes Cana- dian broadcasting stan- dards because the music and lyrics are by a Canadian. "But with Don, we're not strictly banking on, records. We're talking with one of the picture companies about a TV series for him." 44 music groups to get grants OTTAWA (CP) The Can- ada Council announced grants today totalling to 44 music organizations.
