jam to play 'Mankynde'

By FARGO BERMAN
A really standard concert.
Someone got a fake "0" ink
stamp which the auditorium
workers were using for admis-
siorl and several without stamp
or ticket forced their way in
and the EMU Activities Board
stands a possibility of losing
money on the Traffic perform-
ance.
The people refused to go back
to their seats before Traffic
came on and the management
gave up. Converted Bowen Field
house had basketball court
acoustics-those up front had
ears blasted, those in back were
mighty far back. And of course,
the crowd loved it-there was a
lot of dope circulating.
Skip VanWinkle on organ and
Dave Teegarden on drums did
the first set, bothfine perfor-
mers and Teegarden getting
everything possible out of a
standard set of drums with
tambourine mounted on his hi-
hat. They originally hail from
Oklahoma though now con-
sidered a local act and do a sort
of country thing. Theiract al-
ways becomes numbing after
twenty minutes because they
just can't get enough variety
out of just drums and organ
but they had the crowd up and
about at the end of a 45 minute
set with "God, Love, Rock &
Roll."
Interested in adding some
horns and perhaps some orches-
tration, the boys as yet can not
afford to, thanks in part to poor
record company promotion of
their first two album efforts.
Their third album, probably
just entitledy "Teegarden and
VanWinkle," will be out about
Christmas time.
Of course Traffic was very
good. Of course their songs are
the best there are today in con-
temporary pop. Of course Win-
wood's super child's edge far-
ranging voice was something
you would not want to miss.
And it was extremely disap-
pointing.
They started off with a new
rock tune, did a rockish rendi-
tion of "Pearly Queen," and
then from the latest album,
"Empty Pages." On "Pages,"
leader Steve Winwood, who
switched off between guitar and
organ thru the show, played
electric piano which came over
the sound system with a jarring
tinniness almost psychedelic
but threatening to shatter an
eardrum.
God bless 'em the group did
a little fenagling with the
sound system and came on with
drummer Jim Capaldi's fantas-
tic "Roaming thru the Gloam-
ing with 40,000 Headmen On
My Trail," with; Winwood on
acoustic guitar and Wood un-
able for much of the song to
get a working mike to play the
important flute licks, but the
group started playing more to-
gether this song and following
doing almost exclusively num-
bers from their second and third
albums, Traffic and John Bar-

On Friday and Saturday, 13
and 14 Nov., The Poculi Ludique
Societas will present Mankunde,
a fifteenth century morality
play, at eight p.m. in Trueblood
Aud.
Poculi Ludique Societas is a
theatre society from the Univer-
sity of Toronto devoted to the
production of medieval drama.
Formed in 1964, the group is
made up of undergraduate and
graduate students and Univer-
sity of Toronto faculty. Under
the direction of Paul Baker, the
Societas has performed numer-
ous mystery and morality plays
from the fourteenth, fifteenth,
and sixteenth centuries includ-
ing Noah' Flood, Cain and Abel,
the Adoration of the Magi, the
Death 'ofHerod and Everyman.
They have also produced the
York Passion Play and several
sixteenth century comedies.
Their audiences have covered

areas of the United States and
Canada and they are presently
filming six episodes from the
Chester cycle of plays for edu-
cational television.
For their production of Man-
kynde, the players use medieval
music to set the mood, which re-
quires that the audience sense
themselves as being close to the
play. The religious framework
of the play-the personification
of moral characters-is obvious
and emphatic. The focus of the
play moves back and forth be-
tween the hero and the audi-
ence, involving everyone in the
fate of Mankynde.
Poculi Ludique Societas ap-
pears on the University campus
under the joint sponsorship of
the University Players and the
English department. Seats are
$1.50 and may be purchased at
the Trueblood Box Office.

leycorn (Last Exit was an album
pieced together by the company
to capitalize when the group
broke up).
Again going acoustic, Win-
wood and Capaldi sang a mel-
low folksy "John Barleycorn"
and then the group got into a
super-rhythm version of "Glad"
with Chris Wood playing wah-
wah sax. Called back for more
after finishing with "Freedom
Rider," Traffic encored with
"Means to an End," and a fan-
tastic "Dear Mr. Fantasy," Win-
wood playing just a 15 second
super guitar riff showing he
could be Jimmy Page if he
wanted and the group finally,
with the impact that could make
a concert indelible, if the drive
were present during just half
the total performance.
It was a shame not to hear
more of Chris Wood's flute and
electric sax. A bummer not to
hear any electric violin from
Ric Grech who has joined the
group (after Family and Blind
Faith) and spent the night play-
ing fine bass and lousy guitar,
though admittedly the guitar
gave him a lot of tuning trouble.
And the group only infrequently
clicked like they do nearly every
second of their albums.
No one was robbed, there was
just a rival spark missing. Chris,
Wood says the group likes play-r
ing the States more than Eng-s
land 'cause here the peoplec
cheer or boo vigorously and
jump and get excited, while int
England it's often "like playing
ENDS WEDNESDAY

to a brick wall." Here is a group
that can eat your heart out with
its unity-Wood notes that the
only real hassle in putting to-
gether their forthcoming album
(due any time now) is indecision
about the album cover and title
-but Sunday night you could
just as well have listened to
their records at home.
The only way you could have
gotten ecstatic listening to the
Traffic concert was by Pon-
vincing yourself that you felt so,
and if more people had demand-
ed a really exciting performance
instead of dopily believing they
got one, perhaps something dy-
namic would have evolved in-
stead of having the greatest,
non-show, musical, jazz-rock-
ballad group do just another one
night stand on a cross country
tour.
Of course, it could be the ab-
sence of Dave Mason, who is now
playing on his own, though the
group's first album was fins,
enough without him. Or too
many one-nighters. Or oad as-
trology. Traffic was very good
doing some great songs and it
sure was not enough.
