Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ,1974-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-7 Rock group back with hit record NEW YORK (AP) The RiRhteous Brothers, once foremost exponents of blue- eyed soul, are back together and their first record is a hit. Rock 'n' Roll Heaven be- came a hit so fast, the Right- eous Brothers cancelled "break-in" engagements and got busy making an album. But they played a concert at the Schaefer Music festival in Central Park thinking it was too important to cancel. Bill Medley and Bobby Hat- field, acting relaxed and con- fident one minute and nervous about the first "return" con- cert the next. There was noth- ing to worry au- dience loved it and wanted more encores than the Right- eous Brothers had ready. The Righteous Brothers got together originally in Orange County, Calif., in 1962 and had a hit with Little Latin Lupe Lu. Their biggest records were You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin', Soul and Inspiration, Ebb Tide and Unchained Melody, sung solo by Hatfield. They were a duo for six years, breaking up in 1968, and were apart six years. They were both lead singers when they met, Medley said, and after six years both wanted to see what they could do on their own, again. Five or six months ago, both were appearing in Las Vegas and they decided maybe the time was right to reunite. Hatfield said: "I would go in and sing with Bill on stage and the au- diences went crazy. Dylan had come back and it felt like music was getting better." "When we quit recording, lyrics seemed to be really getting Medley said. "Now they're more mature and it's more fun to sing more adult lyrics." "Another thing was that we were both free to do what we Hatfield said. "Our recording contracts were up. We both disbanded a band." Medley said: "Now we have a 10-piece band; some of them have been with us, then with me, for maybe eight years. The guitar player started with us and played on the original records. "First we got a record con- tract with Haven Records, a subsidiary of Capitol, owned by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter. This first single is about rock 'n' roll performers who have passed away. That doesn't sound very tasteful but the record is. "It was the first thing they played for us and we both lov- ed it. It was recorded by the Climax Blues Band and up- dated since Bobby Darin and Jim Croce have died." Hatfield said: "The production is not the same, if you're accustomed to Phil Specter's wall-to-wall sound. Lambert and Potter produce with a cleaner, sim- pler sound. We're singing about the same. In fact I'm singing better. Bill has lost a httle bit of his edge. And the middle."

In a deal with Columbia Pic- tures as distributor, it is to be the most elaborate launching for a Canadian film, and the film board hopes Why Rock the Boat? will be a box-office successor to The Appren- ticeship of Duddy Kravitz, the most successful Canadian movie yet produced. Based on a book by William Weintraub and directed by award-winning John Howe, the film is filled with nostalgia for anyone who knew Montreal just after the Second World War. Its wit is gentle, chuckle-provoking, and its setting authentic. Alberta-born Stuart Gillard plays Harry Barnes, a naive young cub reporter on the Montreal Daily Witness, a barely fictional representa- tion of the Montreal Gazette. He meets and falls in love British actor wanted role in Canadian film MONTREAL (CP) British actor Richard Harris, preparing for his 24th film role, says he does not think star status and top billing go hand in hand. Harris is to play a secon- dary role in the film, The Last Castle, due to begin a four- week shooting schedule Wednesday in the unlikely setting of Chester Bay, N.S. "This film is really a labor of love for me because I've wanted to do it for such a long time and Hollywood producers don't seem to want to touch this kind of he said in an interview Tuesday. "Maybe it's too simple or too honest, or maybe it's too believable." In Montreal to talk about the production which also stars Barbara Harris and Jodi Foster, the actor said he is pleased that in Canada his film will get the treatment it deserves. "I'm not knocking Hollywood, but they always seem to be thinking in a one- dimensional taking a successful script and turning it into garbage." The film, produced in as'sociation with Astral Bellevue Pathe Ltd. of Montreal, is based on a Broadway play written by Robert L. Joseph. It tells the story of a child faced with death. Scope, said Harris, is one of the things that drew him to the part, which might be con- sidered a secondary role. "So what? I can make it happen in this film, or I think I can, and star billing isn't that important." The eloquent, grey-haired star of Camelot, Cromwell and A Man Called Horse said Canada is at the stage where it can be an important testing ground for films. "Living so close to the giant American film industry, you can't help but feel a little bit inhibited. TARE FLU!
