FJigh powered, super dynamic night at Hill

i

By BERT STRATTON
Last night at Hill Aud., wait-
ing for the Byrds to come on
stage, the conspicuousness of a
coat and tied student in the
row in front of me caught my
eye.
Hell, that crowd was the most
un-tied-up and un-uptight au-
dience that Hill Aud. has ever
seen. Everyboody was up for a
good time, and a good time was
had by all.
The reasons simply being that
Commander Cody's band and

the Byrds both played great
sets.
On first was Cody's seven-
man troupe, who quickly turned
over the crowd's ignition, when
they reluctantly walked off the
stage about forty-five minutes
later, the audience was pretty
hot, about ready to explode.
Face it, Commander Cody's
Lost Planet Airmen are the high
octane blend-complete, unre-
fined dynamite. With Ann Ar-
bor's Billy C. doing the driving
vocals, and foot-stomping Cody

keeping everything tight on
piano, they went fast-trying a
. little bit of everything.
' Running through their favo-
rites (country - western a n d
rock), with all sorts of clown-
ing and extra-musical effects
(like displays of fiddler Andy
Stein's dancing expertise), tak-
ing a short rest now and then,
but nobody noticed, because it
was on to the next song.
Going way back with Carl
Perkin's Boppin' the Blues, as
Andy Stein does unbelievable
fiddle riffs, Bruce the bassist
stays low and unobtrusive, but
at the same time keeping the
bass line strong, Billy C. out in
front "with the singing (he
doesn't play his harp too much
these days), the steel guitarist
doing an adequate job, and the
Commander pounding out the
entire melody and bass line with
all the honky-tonk versatility he
can muster.
But nobody's noticing that
crap! The band's sound is pierc-
ing, like an arrow is piercing,
it's the arrowhead up front that
counts, and who cares about the
wooden shaft in back. Just one
big, encompassing happy noise
-whether they're doing a Hank
Williams country song, or the
tune Elvis did, Black Limousine,
or even Rip It Up, one of Little
Richard's old stand-bys. Called
back for more, and it's the rock
classic from th~e original fuser
of country and rock, Carl Perk-
ins, it's Blue Suede Shoes.
An intermission, and out walk
three guitarists and a drummer
-the Byrds, and an immediate
downer, like where's your fiddle,
steel guitar, piano, or anything
else? Well, the Byrds got around
the problem, they played im-
peccable guitar, and they har-
monized when they sang. That
was plenty.

,Lead Byrd, Roger McQuinn,
led the transition from the
raucus Cody mood to the femi-
nine toughness that exudes from
his personality. Watching Mc-
Quinn take over on the country-
rock song You Ain't Goin' No-
where or the early hit Mr.
Spaceman, is just as interesting
as listening to him. Small mo-
tion that the people up front
caught, like a brush of his hand
through his long hair, or a gen-
tle smile, he's intent and he's
different when the music starts.
His feeling are out front. Be-
hind the stage just as he was
going to open the door and valk
out for the second set, he told
his bassist how tired he was,
but then quickly added, "But
when I open this door (to the
stage) I'm a different person."
Music does that to him.
So much so, that the other
men, even the very talented
guitarist Clarence White, are
almost unnoticed. They under-
standably call McQuinn chief
synthesizer on his latest record.
