William Collins presents color
on a color field background

By LARRY ADELSON
Through the end of the month,
Lantern Gallery (301 N. Main)
is showing paintings by William
Collins. Collins is a color-field
painter working with airbrushed
areas of subtly shifting colors
which stretch across his can-
vasses.
The gallery compares his work
with that of Rothko and Olitski,
and the comparison is probably
a useful one since it makes the
limitations of Collins' frequently
good paintings more apparent.
The similarity with Rothko is
at times virtually unavoidable,
that with Olitski is, to the re-
viewer, more obscure.
In either case, he differs in
two respects from them. The
first is in the quality of the
surface of his paintings which
are airbrushed and quite finely
finished. They contrast with
Olitski, who also uses an air-
brush but to spatter on rough-
textured and rich and vari-
colored areas of paint in con-
trast with Collins' smooth color
shifts. He differs from Rothko-
quite obviously since Rothko's
work was hand brushed and
quite honestly so. Being as sim-
ple as they are, and lacking the
perfect balance for, say, Albers,
his work suffers from the lack of
texture.

-Daily-Tom Gottlieb
Crowd hers Water
A mammoth crowd last night, turned out at Hill Aud. to hear blues singer Muddy Waters. When The
Daily went to press last night, Waters was just be ginning his set. (For a review of the concert, see
Sunday morning's art page).
Cody and the Airmen: A lot of
charisma and some fine music

They also differ in that the
areas of color drift across and
off of the canvas whereas Roth-
ko kept his quite within the
limits of the canvas and Olitski
plays an awareness of the edge
of the picture-plane against the
central areas. The result of this
is to dissipate the power that
could be generated if the areas
were defined.
Collins does, however, give us
one painting which is significant-
ly different from the others and
which does seem to escape the
above criticisms. This is a large,
grey, painting which has a
vaguely triangular 'cloud' 'loat-

cent and atmospheric. While the
painting has a simplicity which
I feel that the art scene is now
moving away from, it does over-
come some of the faults of the
other paintings and holds a
promise for future work.

APPLAUSE FROM THE CRITICS

By ANITA CRONE
and JIM IRWIN
Well, there they were, back
again, doing it again - without
even trying. They were wig-
gling, gyrating, vibrating with
the audience, recreating, recall-
ing flashing hallucinations of
Elvis Presley at his best and
funnier than Elvis's funniest.
Glorious with feeling, hilarious
ecstasy, the Lost Planet Airman
"now Ref ound in their good o1'
home and haven, Ann Arbor,
Michigan.
Commander Cody played like
they had never left the town,
like never before. The audience
stomped like never before. This
was the crowd they were created
for, that created them in the
coffeehouses, and bars of their
}home. They were back, the audi-
ence was back, too. Romping,
-raving, stomping, h owlIin g,
-screaming, halleliula. Back
again? Timeless.
No more of those insane
.-screen projections of Playboy-
style mannikens flashing in the
. oggling faces of truck drivers
the myth that society had cre-
ated. No more of those distrac-
tions; just pure sensational
music that was a gas.
With the first strains of
electrified violin the audience
was electrified, both figuratively
and literally, climaxing with
Cody plinkity, plank, plunking
sounds old and new on the old
klavier, complete with hair
dangling in the dirty, now worn
with justice, piano keys.
Cody was back, too, singing
his song about being chased by a
cop in his Lincoln Continental
and the fiddler sawing out a
siren.
Billy C., as always, banging on
the guitar that was never either
tuned or plugged into the am-
plifier.
And the audience just ate
it up, loving it for every mo-
ment in the moment, what they
had always been waiting for, the
good '01 days. They gave it back,
too, all together now stamping,
shouting.

I almost fell out of my chair-
a backache contracted during
my vigil with Steve and John
now finally obliterated.
I didn't give a damn about the
chairs all lined up with no
room, or people stepping on my
feet (and nobody minded my
stepping on theirs, either.)
Cody and his Airmen was
contrasted by Steve and John,
obviously a beginning duo at-
tempting to play Blues. Unfor-
tunately for the two perform-
ers, it takes more than haphaz-
ard playing and telling the
crowd "that we're here to have
a good time and so are you" to
make a first or even second rate
performance.
The Blues is an involving
kind of music, and it is import-
ant that the audience as well
as the performer become in-
volved. This just didn't happen
with Steve and John.
They tried-they really did,
and at times they came reason-
ably close to success. Like the
harmonica playing of John. He
almost had it. But it was lost,
as they went on and on in the
same basic blues progression, al-
ways in the same key, and al-
ways in a monotone, not only
vocal but instrumental as well.
There is the idea of what
a performer is there for. And
what kind of concessions a per-
former must make to his audi-
ence. This reviewer feels that it
is important that a group re-
cognize the signs of boredom
and ennuie, as well as swelter-
ing heat, and get off the stage
when they achieve their peak.
In last night's performance both
heat and playing reached a peak
at 'the same time. Steve and

John just didn't do this. The
crowd didn't come to hear them,
and after about half an hour
the crowd had heard enough. It
was Cody they had come to
hear, and it was Cody who
made the evening worthwhile.
For those of you considering
going to hear Commander Cody
and his Lost Planet Airmen to-
night and Sunday at The Alley,
it is best to get there late.
