Blues..
By MARK DILLEN
When B. B. King played the
Fillmore East a couple of years}
ago, legend has it that he was
afraid when he saw an aud-
ience comprised of predominate-
ly white kids. Most whites h a d
never really known the blues.
Yet after he went out and play-
ed his set the crowd was on
its feet. It was the beginning of
a new time. Young white folk.
were beginning to discover the
blues.
By now the blues has been
with this new audience for a
while, learning that it's been
here all along. People (as Buddy
Guy said Sunday night) were
just turning their backs to it;
they had to learn that the blues
is when you hurt, when you got-.
ta say that strong something;
that the blues is everyone. So,
the men and women of blues
became a family to these people
and when they come to visit, it's
like a returning part of y o u r
long-missed family. Part of that
family came back Sunday night
for the benefit of the Ann Ar-
bor-Blues Festival and they told
us where they've been.
And we discovered that they've
been away too long, even though
they left us just last August. All
our brothers and sisters In the
family were there to greet them.
Yet, for some reason after
their visit, you don't want to
commit yourself. There was
energy there and some people
felt that energy at different
times. Judging Sunday's b lu e s
benefit is like trying to dictate
which of your brothers you like w
the best when you dig them all. th
But now that we've got that off, SO
let's talk a bit about the music s
itself and the musicians who put to
it on. w
There was Dave Alexander, w
Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, w
Johnny Winters and Otis Rush. a
Dave led off and there w a s v
something about him that left ha
you with mixed feelings a b o u t A

hat he is doing. Part of it is
hat Dave is fairly new on the
Gene and you want to see him
ucceed, but it seems he's trying
oo hard. He did most of his gig
ith Luther and there was little
ondering about whether they
ere together. Dave does play
clean funky piano and does
ery good things with his right
and, but had it not been for
llison, things wouldn't have
orked out so well. "Route 66,"
hich he told us some dude at
Downbeat' thought was a w k-
ard, wasn't awkward but nice
- probably the highlight of the
et.
Luther and Dave made a good
ombination, tossing off twelve
ar choruses to one another.
he only trouble was the heavy
ass of Pete Mercy.which had
tendency to drown out Dave's
ft hand and some of the soft-m
r accents in the faulty acous-
is of the Events Bldg.

'JOE' is not merely an extraordinary film; it is a
small artistic miracle. Only rarely in the turmoil of
human events does a work of fiction speak so clearly,
with such brutal directness to the core truths of the
condition of life that no matter what one's beliefes,
there is no denying its validity. 'JOE' is approached
for sheer impact and importance only by 'Z,' 'PATHS
OF GLORY,' and the final scenes of 'EASY RIDER.'
No one conceiving this film, a year ago, could have
known how loudly it would speak today. It is a one-
in-a-million."
