monotonous. Johnny makes for
some variety by sometimes us-
ing a steel-bodied unamplified
guitar, and displays mastery of
the bottleneck style as well. But
what makes the album is John-
ny's singing, especially (on "Tri-
bute to Muddy" and "It's My
Own Fault") when he sings in
unison with (or in response to)
his guitar leads. The Columbia
album will be the one to watch
for, but blues fans take notice:
Johnny Winter is here.
An oddly traditional blues al-
bum is Ike and Tina Turners
Outta Season (Blue Thumb BT-
55). Ike and Tina have always
been among the biggest stars in
the rhythm a n d blues scene,
and Tina probably the most ex-
citing woman in the world. Like
other great performing acts
(Otis Redding, James Brown,
the Who), they leave much of
their vitality back in the bar
when they come into the studio.
(The great ones, of course, have
enough to make it work in the
studio too.) Here they are with-
out the horn section, and with-
out the Ikettes, doing simple
and sweet country blues. The
songs are familiar (some Jimmy
Reed, and "Dust My Broom,"
"R o c k Me Baby," "My Babe,"
"I've B e e n Loving You (Too
Long)") and the sessions aren't
the best you've ever heard (com-
pare Otis' "I've Been . . .", Or
Little Walter's "Mean 0 1 d
World"), but it works. It works
real good.
My name is Charles
Atlas. I can't prom-
ise you'll win the
title of "World's
Most Perfectly
Developed Man" as
I did. But I do be-
lieve I can make a
powerful He-Man of
you--in a very short
time. You can prove
it to yourself--at my
risk. My bid free book
tells how to' do it. <

These records - and the new
Dylan, Everly, Byrds, and ex-
Byrds records - are all part of
the "roots" phenomenon occur-
ring in American popular music
today, and not really "rock"
records. Indeed, the highest en-
ergy soul music to appear in a
long while is the work of a post-
Coltrane New Thing saxophon-
ist. In New Grass (Impulse A-
9175), Albert Ayler comes down
from spaced-out screaming-be-
yond-form to basic gospel mu-
sic. It's hardly down, really; the
expression is viscerally exciting
and pure. Albert still screams,
and keeps his otherwordly hornl
timbre, but the solid r & b back-
ing is there, and the Soul Sing-
ers too. All right.
Shifting gears completely, con-
sider the Youngbloods' latest,
Elephant Mountain (RCA LSP

of their music. The group's
strongest points, Jesse Colin
Young's singing and the quiet
ensemble sound, are evident
here, but the loss of guitarist
Jerry Corbitt is quite a blow,
When the Youngbloods do their
special brand of hillbilly gospel
music, things stay very interest-
ing, but Electrical Banana can't,
carry the load alone, and their
jams, unfortunately, seem to go
nowhere.
Finally, let me tell you about
Happy Trails (Capitol ST 120),
the second (and last) record
from Quicksilver Messenger Ser-
vice. The entire first side (25
min.) is devoted to Bo Diddley's
"Who Do You Love," and Quick-
silver here achieves true tribal
rock and roll. (Marshall Mc-
Luhan, this means you.) This
was hinted at in the Grateful

ter at this, but Chess Records
makes it impossible for its musi-
cians to show their best work.)
Tribal music is involving,
continuing, and succeeds in tak-
ing you along with it. The Bo
Diddley beat is hypnotic, a n d
Quicksilver is especially n i c e'
for this, since they do it all with
a gentleness. Something to real-
ly get into, hardly "background
music", but maybe you can- get
some work done anyway. Good
luck .
