The Best of Everything

By JACKIE KALLEN
Guest Columnist

Watch for the re-emer-
gence of Mitch Ryder on the
rock scene this year. A dec-
ade ago, Mitch and his De-
troit Wheels were a hot
number. They topped the
charts with hits like "Devil
With the Blue Dress On"
and "Jenny Take a Ride."
Some things don't work
out so well, however, and
Mitch Ryder's career was
one of those. He faltered,
then dropped out of sight
completely. Now, after
moving out to Colorado for
a few years and doing an
odd assortment of jobs to
get by, Mitch is back in
gear and ready to join Bob
Seger as one of the nation's
top rock 'n' rollers from the
Motor City.
He's learned a lot from
_ his up-and-down expe-
riences.
"I have learned through
all this that I am human.
I'm susceptible to the same
failures and successes as
anyone else. There was a
point in my life when I
didn't even think that fail-
ure was feasible. Now I
know better."
There was a time when
Mitch Ryder was consid-
ered a tough cookie. An
arrogant, cocky rebel. No
more. The Mitch Ryder of
today has grown and ma-
tured and is facing the fu-
ture with optimism and a
healthy outlook.
We gave a party for him
recently and he was the
most congenial, pleasant
guest-of-honor a hostess
could ask for. He put on a
sizzling 90-minute concert
after which he circulated
and spoke to every single
guest.
The guests were delighted
by both the concert and the
chance to get to know Mitch
Ryder offstage. Detroit
Lions' defensive tackle
Doug English confessed that
"Jenny Take a Ride" was
the very first record he ever
bought back in Dallas when
he was in junior high school.
Mark Fidrych thought that
Ryder was "terrific" and
WABX's Jerry Lubin kept
screaming, "He's still got
it ! He's still great!"
Let's hope that Mitch Ry-
der can again click with the
record-buying public. He's
trying hard and I hope he

Speaking of making it, if
you haven't heard of Gino

Vannelli yet, you will. The
handsome Canadian singer
has a cult following that
grows with each album.
Now, with his fifth A&M
release, "A Pauper In Para-
dise," the whole country is
getting turned on to him.
He was at Cobo recently
and the audience was ecsta-
tic. He's a different kind of
singer. Hard to label. Most
people consider his music a
fusion of jazz, rock and clas-
sical. Whatever it is, it's
electrifying a lot of people.
The fact that Vahnelli is
extremely good-looking and
wears tighter pants than
Tom Jones ever thought of
wearing, doesn't hurt with
the ladies. They carry on
over him the way they did
over Elvis and Belafonte.
He's selling not only his
voice — he's selling sex
appeal.
He's working on a TV
special that will be shown
some time this spring. Tune
it in and see for yourself
why music writers all over
the country are predicting
such big things for Gino
Vannelli.
If you're talking about lo-
cal talent making good, you
can't just limit your conver-
sation to Mitch Ryder. You
have to say a few words
about Tom Powers, whose
album, ;`Love and Learn" is
selling so well.
When Tom first came to
this town about seven years
ago, he was playing piano
with Larry Santos at the
Tender Trap. Most people
first got turned on to Pow-
ers out at the Inn Between
or on the east side at-the
Struttin' Club.
Now, anyone who listens
to FM 100 or WABX has
been hearing him. He's an-
other one who's on the brink
, of something potentially
big.
I love reporting about
people who are doing well
and are on the road to suc-
cess. It's much more satis-
fying than writing about
people whose careers are
falling apart. Besides, you
all know who they are. You
can tell by the poor record
sales and weak attendance
, at concerts. But unless you
read the industry pub-
lications and keep tabs on
the whole music scene, you
may not always be aware of
what's new and corning on
strong.
