Records in review
FOR THE Firesign Theater, it seems the crazier the times, the
zanier .their material. Now, in the wake of Nixon's resigna-
tion and in the face of a depression, they return to the current
scene to inform us that, contrary to popular belief, Everything
You Know is Wrong. (Columbia KC-33141).
Basing that assumption on the fact that most Americans
believe such statements as "dogs flew spaceships" or "our fore-
fathers took drugs" are fallacies, they take us on an excursion
to prove the impossible -- incorporating such recent phenomena
as UFO sightings, the Evil Knievil debacle, Don Juan's spiritual
experiences and the true outcome of Comet Kohoutek into their
funny business.
It's their tightest presentation since I Think We're All Bozos
on This Bus and features some of their most comical characters
(such as Nino the Mindbogger and Dr. "Happy" Harvey Cox)
since Porgie and Mudhead or Nick Danger.
-Kurt John Harju
Though some may disapprove of the way she's moving from
folk to a more popular and jazzy style, the change suits Joni
Mitchell as well as an evening gown - and that fits perfectly.
The proof is in her new two
record live set Miles of Aisles
(Asylum AB 202) of the tour
she made this summer with'
Tom Scott and the L. A. Ex-
press.
The difference is most clear-
ly seen in her older material
such as "Both Sides New" or
"Big Yellow Taxi" that the
brilliant back-up band trans-
forms into fresh and exciting
soft rock. But as great as the
music is, it isn't half as good
as Joni's captivating vocals
that more fully express the so-.
phisticated but still sensitive%
woman she has become in the
success this release acknow-
ledges. Joni ]1ithell
While this is very nearly a
greatest hits collection, it unfortunately neglects her most recent
work that best realizes the musical stance she's now taking. In
compensation, she ends the set with two new songs "Jericho"
and "Love or Money" that lyrically and otherwise show why
she's the reigning queen of the pop scene.
-Kurt John Harju
BESIDES THE Beatles, no contemporary musician has done as
much or as well with the conventional love song as Jimmy
Webb. Throughout his career as a composer-arranger-producer
and, in the last five years, as a singer and performer also, he's
brought a high degree of sophistication and sensibility to a form
so easily susceptible to simlistic sentimentality.
His latest work, Land's End (Asylum SD-5070), clearly con-
tinues the romantic concerns he began with in such pop classics
as "Up, Up and Away," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and
"Mac Arthur Park" and developed in a triology of his own solo
albums (Words and Music, And So: On, Letters). This time
round; he infuses these love songs (using nature as a metaphor)
with his most complex imagery, complete sound settings and
competent vocals to date.
The result is his most commercially accessible music so
far, with "Ocean, in His Eves," "Feet in the Sunshine," "Cloud-
man" and "Asleep on the Wind" as the best examles.
-Kurt John Harju

Since the Bonzo Doe Bnnd broke lin in 1rn thre 1ha'e been
several attemnts to cnritalize on what nonnlrit thev had,
and nossiblv mnke some new comn'rts. The Rltorv of the Ronzos
(United Artists UTA-LA31I-T2h is the most recent collection, and
by far the best and most comlete.
The Bonzos were magicians who could take styles ranging
from dixieland, to vaudeville, to rock 'n' roll, to soul, and infuse
them with a new life, with an amazing sense of parody and wit.j
They were also musicians who could play all these styles
with skill and flair, changing moods with purposefully slipshod
playing to express and underline the humor of their music.
Bonzo music was an eclectic mixture, shot through with
controlled lunacy. The Bonzos won't be back, but this album
is a fitting memoriam to them.

pound.

(UPI) - Frozen
confiscated by U.S.
1972 were sold at
price of $1.37 per

"New Englanders prefer fresh
lobster," one of the buyers
said. "We'll probably unload
this stuff in New York, the
Midwest or the West Coast,
where they don't know any bet-
ter."
The lobster, 333,045 pounds of
lit, was seized when the gov-
ernment claimed it was im-
properly labeled. One distribu-
tor said the meat can be resold
for at least $3 a pound.

"meat" made partly of soya'
beans for the past three months
without knowing the difference,
a scientist said recently. Dr.
Dezerega Salgado, secretary of
the state-run Institute for Tech-
nological Investigations, reveal-
ed in an interview with the
newspaper Mercurio that the in-
stitute had been producing 1.5
tons of the soya-meat mixture
each week and delivering it to
sausage and salami factories.
"These products have been
sold to the public for at least the
last three months and it seems
that nobody has noticed," Dr.
Salgado said.
truffles

gus that gastronomes consider
"the diamonds of the kitchen."
Henry Trione and financier
Ralph Stone head a consortium,
which has acquired rights to
15,000 acres north of Santa
Rosa, Calif. in rolling hills like
those in Italy and France
where truffles abound.
The going price for truffles
varies, depending on where
they are purchased. In New
York, for example, they cost
between $6 and $7 an ounce and
can cost as much as $200 a
pound.
Uncovering the aromatic deli-
cacy, which flavors dishes with
a woodsy taste somewhat like
chestnuts or mushrooms, is no
small challenge.
The consortium, encouraged
by reports that an Oregon bot-
anist has discovered a handful
of edible truffles, has ordered
two sharpsnouted truffle hounds
from Alba, Italy for $300 each.
Stone says the dogs, "which
look like a fox terrier with. a
few other breeds thrown in, can
catch the scent of a truffle
from a 100 yards away."
If the truffles can be found,
Trione says American cooks
will find that "a trifle of truffle
goes a long way.'
