Dining for theatre-goers
an over-charged evening

To the Daily:
Those of us who enjoy a good.
dinner before the theatre were
delighted last year watching the
construction of a new restaurant
at the corner of State and
Huron. It was to have a liquor
license and, though beyond our
day to day budget, it looked like
a nice place for a splurge. Last
Wednesday night a group of us
decided to try it out.
We were not disappointed.
From the large comfortable
chairs and tables, of sufficient
size to hold a meal for f o u r
without crowding, to the 1 a s t
cup of coffee, the entire exper-
ience was most pleasant. T h e
menu is of good size with one or
two tasty specialties and t h e
'drinks are well-mixed and plen-
teous.
Then came the bill! Well, you
will say, "If they went to such
a place, they shouldn't h a v e
expected to get out for a dol-
lar nineteen." And indeed we
didn't. But the way the menu
is written we did expect to pay
quite a bit less. Prices were only
listed for the entrees and for
expensive appetizers such as oy-
sters or snails, as one would
expect. There was a paragraph
in six point type explaining
what was included in the dinner
ron the left hand page. and the
right hand page is devoted to
the entrees. Wine suggestions
are underneath each item in-
cluding prices per bottle.
At the very bottom of that
page is the description "des-
serts" with andinvitation todtry
two courses of dessert, one of
pastry and one of fruit and
cheese. No prices here at all.

ON THE CHECK there is a
separate category for "a la
carte desserts" and we were
charged 75 cents -apiece for a
couple of strawberries and a
piece of swiss cheese about
cracker size: Additional charg-
es also appeared fornroquefort
salad dressing and coffee.
Now you may ask why I should
complain about charges of about
$1.35 if I plan to spend between
$4.75 and $6.00 for dinner any-
way. But I ask in return, spend-
ing that much for dinner, am
I not entitled to an honest bill
of fare beforehand? I realize
that the particular location of
Victor's gives it a convenience
we should perhaps pay for, but
why is it that they cannot turn
an honest profit without resort-
ing to such skullduggery? W a s
the location and liquor license
so expensive?
If I go to the London Chop
House in Detroit 'or a fancy
restaurant in New York, I expect
these extra charges, because
they are on the menu, and not
in small print either. They make
their charges on the basis of
what they do say. not on the
basis of what they don't say. I
have no argument.

Jazz Classiks No. 5
"How I Blew With Every-
body" - Johnie Rutger
Wott Records QED 86
This honey of a record, ac-
tually the seventh in the Wott
"Jazz Classiks" series, features
famous jazz - rock bassoonist
Johnie Rutger backed by h i s
favorite sidemen who were la-
ter to be known as t h e Jazz
Avenger Spiffy Band, including
Susan Kodiak playing some
sterling pieces on unamplified
Fender : electric twelve-string
guitar, Bo Loser on deflated
pigskin .bongos, and Milleri-
ler wailing a fine stint on four-
toothed mouth whistle.
Preceding this number five
record in the series are not only
records one through four, but
also a fantastic re-release of
some classic recordings from the
20's of a virtually unknownar-
tist (numbered. zero) and a
worthless recording of Jelly
Bean Jameson and his eclectic
electric 86 key viola - though
that record is historic in the
sense that it records the first
use of the wah-wah pedal way
back in 1926 when Jameson used
a homemade version construct-
ed from an Arizona orange crate
and five hours of hallucinations.
But the Rutger record is an
undeniable classic; these tracks
are f r o m the heyday of the
tragic life of Johnie Rutger, who
was to die only one month af-
ter this recording was made in
the only fatal accident of his

life. Wott . Record President
Buzzy LaMar tearfully related
at the wake that "we could have
made so much more out of him
if he'd only cut a few more sides
before getting on the Zeppelin."
That was back in '27, and to-
day LaMar thinks back on those
days with yet a bit of sorrow in
his heart.
At a recent barroom confer-
ence LaMar was overheard say-
ing "What a great g u y. We
could have made so much more
out of him if only he'd cut a
few more sides before getting
on the Zeppelin." You'll notice,
in the 1927 quote that the word
"'he" in he'd" comes before
"only" whereas in the later
quote the two are reversed, sug-
gesting that perhaps now that
the pain of loss has mellowed a
bit. LaMar is a bit more tied up
with financial considerations
than, he was in 1927; this ties
in with a similarity in. Rutger's
present day popularity, greatly
lagging compared to the o 1 d
days.
This. I believe, is due to the
incredible inability of present
day audiences to grasp the pow-
erful yet subliminal mint jelly
quality of Rutger's double
thumbing pizzacato, a stunning
example of which occurs on this
album's first track "Racism.
Sexism. and Memories of You"
where he uses what is believed
to be the first one-five-four-
nine progression ever recorded.
Incidentally, the fine megaphone
backing vocal which adds so

much to this number is actually
the brief appearance of Hacker
Diddley, the greatest superstar
of the 20's who was never before
and never again recorded.
Rutger pushes on with a good
but not exceptional bassoon
banjo parody, which Steven Ef-
fete, columnist for the music
paper "Knowing Stone" believes
was a parody of Rutger's con-
temporary and arch-rival Joe
Smith. The rest of side one dis-
plays Rutger and his group
blaring wildly, ecstatically, yet
not getting into a show-offish
scene. They play with a level of
competence which any listener
could achieve within a week, to
prove that though they prob-
ably could outplay any other
waltz-rock group of their era,
they did not feel that they had
to prove themselves.
Side two is totally taken up
with an extended jam of a mod-
erately favorite Rutger-Spiffy
Band classic "Mudpie in t h e
Doghouse." Rutger takes off in-
Ii iLLLL

to the ether with a three min-
ute s o 1 o medley incorporating
"Old Folks at Home," "Camp-
town Races," and the authori-
tarian nuances of his stepfa-
ther. Another highlight is Ko-
diak's five second simple sallow
six-string super s o 1 o which
sounds like a forerunner to the
Iron Butterfly's "In-a-Gadda-
da-Vida."
There are lapses into hum-
drum playing, but these do not
last long, and the high points
along with the free poster of
Rutger's decaying kidney both
before and after his accident
make this an album not to be
missed.
