Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday. 31. TM1 LBTHiRIPOE HiRALD 11 Turntable topics Clapton back in recording field By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer Eric Clapton 461 Ocean Boulevard "Slowhand" is back and his latest LP is brilliant. Eric of the first of the 6Q's superstars, was so named because of his amazing speed and agility with a guitar that gave us those brilliant and sometimes almost violent rampages with musical notes. While with Britain's trio, Cream, Clapton would take simple blues progressions and transformed them into electrifying sound. By the beginning of the 70's he was considered one of the world's top rock guitarists then he retired at 26, a heroin addict. Last winter he underwent a special acupuncture treat- ment and is back, this time with a more mature style. His music has always ex- pressed feeling, a feeling that was difficult to put into words. With 461 Ocean Boulevard, Clapton has added the words. Numbers on this album, like Give Me Strength, Motherless Children and Please Be With Me are free, easy moving songs. Listen. His recent hit single, I Shot the Sheriff, is also on this LP. (RSO 2394- Curtis Mayfield Sweet Ex- orcist This man has one of the most distinctive voices in Motown music. Better still, Mayfield is one of the best in the contemporary music in- dustry today. Unlike so many of the "rock" musicians today, Cur- tis Mayfield is a serious artist. His music is clear and its not difficult to tell work has been put into writing and arranging each number. I am tired of the junk being pushed on the public by so many of today's AM radio stations. Loud and sloppy recorded by some mediocre, dime-a-dozen group, is forced upon the young people con- stantly, day in and day out, un- til everyone buys the thing. Just pick any radio station and listen to it for, a day and count how many times a par- ticular record is aired. If more stations played numbers by people like Mayfield, listeners might learn to appreciate good contemporary music instead of "taking what they can get." (Curtom CRS 8601) Masekela -1 Am Not Afraid Here is another musician who, with this, I believe to be his first album, Is a serious. musician who should be recognized and appreciated. Masekela's music taxes the artistic style that is lacking with so many other groups. His stuff is a little different, but that's what counts- variety. He plays a very defiant horn with a blues jazz flavorv back- ed by a startling African style beat. The rhythm is constant and consistent. Masekela's music moves well very well. (Quality BTS 6015) Isls An amazing record, put together by eight very talented women.. Their music is beautiful. The instrumentation, vocals and harmony left me speechless.' Numbers like Servant Savior and Rubber Boy con- tain simply fantastic changes. Even the record jacket is something to behold. (Quality BDS 5605) Denise La Salle On The Loose The only songs on this record that stand out as "something special" are those written by Denise La Salle. would like to present the winners of the bouquets drawn for on Old THURSDAY'S WINNER MRS. ALBERTA MISKULIN 444-19 St. N. Urthbridft FRIDAY'S WINNER MRS. JOE KING I uninifi SATURDAY'S WINNER B 227-19 202S KtofOr ItaB'sA Dnvs) The rest of the numbers are still good and easy to take, but she stags the blues best. Those have more integrity than the others. All in all, it's a clean, well-articulated and well- recorded album. (Westbound 9199-2016) Freddie Hart and The Heartbeats Hang In There Girl This album, unfortunately, slips by without any really distinctive sounds for people with demanding tastes in country music. Freddie Hart is an excellent songwriter but an un- impressive singer. The music and lyrics have feeling and the voice is dull. He should stick to writing the songs and leave the singing to someone else. (Capitol EMI ST 11296) Mountain Avalanche The name of the record is appropriate. Something should fall and bury it. This group took a very well- written and arranged number, Thumbsucker by Shel Silverstein, and totally aborted it. I am hot at all impressed by mediocre, run-of-the-mill Mountain. They are boring and repetitious and overwhelmed by effects. (Columbia-Windfall KC Paper firm employees laid off OTTAWA (CP) A slump in the paper industry has caus- ed layoffs at E. B Eddy Co Ltd: plants here and in neighboring Hull, Que., that may affect 450 workers by next week. The mills employ about in the two cities. However, Eddy vice- president George Neil said to- day prospects are good that all but about ISO will be back at work in two or three weeks. The company laid off 150 workers about two weeks ago, indicating they will be recall- ed in January if business im- proves as expected. This week 200 more were reduced to one or two days work but will be back to normal hours next week. However, a shutdown of three paper machines next week is likely to throw another 300 out of work tem- porarily. Mr. Neil said all mills in Ot- tawa and Hull are expected to be back on a five-day-week production schedule by late November. Calgarian elected chairman VANCOUVER (CP) John R.
