dotes about such counter culture

"HAROLD AND MAUDE" says:
TODAY MINNEAPOLIS -
TOMORROW THE WORLD!
The HAROLD AND MAUDE success story began in Minneapolis
weeks ago when the 'film comedy opened at the surburban
Westgate Theatre to smash business.
Despite good reviews, HAROLD AND MAUDE was a boxoffice
disappointment in most cities (including Detroit) in the holiday
season competitive scramble.
Paramount Pictures was ready to consign HAROLD AND MAUDE
to the televiisan scrap heap until Minneapolis entered in the
scene. The Westgate Theatre felt the film was too good not
to give it a second shot, so HAROLD AND MAUDE was brought
back in a second "first-run" engagement.
The film has grossed a sensational $125,000 and it's still run-
ning. The Westgate thinks word-of-mouth advertising will
keep it going.
Most of our patrons agree with Free Press critic Susan Stark who
called HAROLD AND MAUDE "the most easy-to-take comedy
of the year" and who picked it as one of the year's 10 best
films.I
They also appreciate the humor of Minneapolis showing New
York, De.troit and the rest of the country how to get it done.

Looking back . .'72..
records to remember

By MIKE HARPER
1972 wasn't exactly a banner
year for music - record-wise,
that is. Once again though, the
music business had a very pro-
fitable year - well, at least for
the major labels as sales were
up (and up). But even if quality
came second (or even third) to
quantity, there were some al-
bums worth buying, and among
them (of course), some of my
favorites - and I hope some of
yours' as well (snicker). Any-
way, the envelope please . . .
A L B U M OF THE YEAR:
Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull
(Reprise MS 2072). Tull's fifth
and possibly their finest, this
somewhat flawed but nonetheless
brilliant album is an easy choice
for the best album of the year.
Ian A n d e r s o n's precariously
winding vehicle is both lyrically
and musically moving, compe-
tently executed, yet never overly
pomp-and-circumstantial. Guitar-
ist Martin Barre is (once again)
utterly scintillating, leading the
electir musical charge just as
Anderson commands the acoustic
- and all in the pursuit of typi-
cal Tull excellence. . . . And the
newspaper cover? A masterpiece
in itself. Honorable Mention: For
the Roses (Joni Mitchell, Asy-
lum) and Ziggy Stardust (David
Bowie, RCA).
ROCK ALBUM OF THE
YEAR: The Rise and Fall of
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders
from Mars by David Bowie
(RCA LSP-4702). Glam and glit-

ter aside, David Bowie has writ-
ten, co-arranged, co-produced
and performed quite simply the
best rock album of 1972. From
the plaintive cry of "Five Years"
through the cancerous echoes of
"Rock'N'Roll Suicide," Ziggy
Stardust is clean and readily ac-
cessible concept-wise, and mus-
ically, it is as cat-like as its
creator. The Spiders from Mars
are monstrous, but more im-
portantly, they work as a cohe-
sive unit. Leading this unit is
1972's second most glittering
rock star - second to Mr. Star-
dust, that is - platinum blonde
guitarist Mick Ronson, probably
this year's best new instrumen-
talist. With this his fifth and
most, adventuresome, Bowie is a
Starman. HonorabledMention:
War Heroes (Jimi Hendrix, Re-
prise).

- "ALUMINUM" R 0 C K AL-
BUM OF THE YEAR (A whole
category in itself): Volume IV.
by Black Sabbath (Warner Bros.
BS-2602). Led by Ozzie Os-
bourne's eerie vocals and Toni
Iommi's equally vicious guitar,
Sabbath are still the kings of
heavy metal thunder. And even
if this musical form is growing
more conscious and melodical,
the boys follow the trend well,
showing more variety and, for-
tunately, imagination. The gut-
level sound remains though and
it is this album's main redeem-
ing quality. Not a great, but a
reasonably consistent album.
Ionorable Mention: Demons and
Wizards Uriah Heep, Mercury).
FOLK/FOLK - ROCK ALBUM
OF THE YEAR: For the Roses
b7 Joni Mitchell (Asylum SI)
5057). Roberta Joan Anderson

Mitchell's flowingly 1 y r i c a 1
change from 'lady' to woman.'
The album is piano-dominated
and rightfully so, thriving in
simple, direct movements. Deep-
ly personal and at times self-
denyingly severe, this album
lacks the innocence of, say, La-
dies of the Canyon but what it
gains in womanly heart and wis-
dom is unmistakeably greater:
sincere but moreover real, For
the Roses is emotionally fulfill-
filling in the best sense of the
word. Honorable Mention: Be-
low the Salt (Steeleye Span,
Chrysalis); Gather Me (Melanie,
Neighborhood) and Saint Domi-
nic's Preview (Van Morrison,
WB).
"ORCHESTRAL" ROCK AL-
BUM OF THE YEAR: No Ans-
wer by The Electric Light Or-
chestra (United Artists UAS-55-
73). This is the debut album of
the ELO, or, in their more com-
mon guise, the Move, one of
England's most innovative rock
bands. "Basic Movers" Roy
Wood and Jeff Lynne have com-
posed a series of unique and
(fortunately) entertaining songs,
including their almost-hit single,
"10538 Overture." Combining
simpler electric instruments and
musical forms-rock, jazz, quasi-
blues - with classical "over-
tones," the sound that results is
dynamic and not derivative, this
depending greatly on the inclu-
sion of bassoon, oboe, cello and
clarinet. Good but moreover
thought-provoking music. Hon-
orable Mention: Close to the
Edge (Yes, Atlantic) and Earth-
bound (King Crimson, Atlantic).
COUNTRY / C OU N T R Y
ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR:
Will the. Circle Be Unbroken by
the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
(United Artists UAS-9801). This
historic three record set com-
bines the talents of latter-day
-country/folkers NGDB and such
accomplished Nashville artists as
Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle
Carter, Earl Scruggs and Merle
Travis. The album was record-
ed in a single take, encompass-
ing music from the days of sim-
ple Bluegrass up to and includ-
ing modern Country-and-Western
with the overall effect being one
of a complete Nashville Music
Anthology. The music is pure
and generally untarnished by
rock'n'roll electricity; the vocals
accentuate this music in convinc-
ing, natural harmonies. An ab-
solute MUST for Country fans.
Honorable Mention: Roots and
Branches (Dillards, Anthem);
Morning Bugle (John Hartford,
WB); Garden Party (Rick Nel-
son, Decca) and Sittin' In (Log-
gins and Messina, Columbia).
R & B ALBUM OF THE
YEAR: Superfly, a soundtrack
by Curtis Mayfield (Curtom
CRS-8014). This is certainly Cur-
tis Mayfield's year - two excel-
lent singles, "Freddie's Dead"
and "Superfly," and most im-
portantly this album. Mayfield's
soulful guitar and vocals are fine
throughout, and his band never
overwhelms him; rather, they
prefer to settle back and lend
subtle yet convincing support to
the artist. Good, and righteously
so. Honorable Mention: Music on
My Mind (Stevie Wonder, Tam-
la).
DEBUT ALBUM OF THE
YEAR: The Divine Miss M by
Bette Midler (Atlantic SD 7238).

Naturally, Midler's album lacks
the spontaneity and striking vis-
uality of her in-concert perform-
ances - but fortunately the mit-
sic's all here. She is campy
"Leader of the Pack" and
"Friends"), touching ("Hello in
There"), sultry ("Do You Want
to Dance") or longingly senti-
mental ("Am I Blue?): in a
word, versatile. The arrange-
ments may be a bit lush, but in
every sense, she triumphs over
them, lending her own special
touch of personality plus. "Boo-
gie - Woogie Bugle Boy" is
amazing. This album is best de-
scribed as being entertaining -
and that certainly best describes
the vivacious one, the Divine
Miss M. Honorable Mention:
None.
SINGLE OF THE YEAR:
(TIE) "You Turn Me On, I'm a
Radio" by Joni Mitchell (Asy-
lDm 11010) and "Changes" by
David Bowie (RCA 0605). Mit-

dotes about such counter culture
'dignitaries' as Bob Dylan and,
on occasion, John Sinclair, per-
forming his (shudder) songs in
an unimaginatively sad and dry
style. With John Lennon's stel-
lar production, Peel's shortcom-
ings - namely, his total lack-of-
voice, his poorly - conceived ly-
rics and sophomoric musical ar-
rangements and his self-righte-
ous _attitude of being the "voice
of the people - seem exaggerat-
ed to the point of sheer, mock-
ingly - severe satire. Uninten-
tional, of course. In Search of
Space is the debut album of a
fab-gear equivalent of Pink
Floyd - with all of the noise
and none (I repeat NONE) of the
talent. Hawkwind are already
gaining popularity and all that;I
can say is that the public de-
serves them.
Dis-honorable Mention to sev-
eral grossly over-rated albums:
(In no particular order) Catch.

- --F

chell's warm - hearted love song
to Los Angeles d. j. B. Mitchell
Reed is light and breezy, with
sweet plays on words and, basic-
ally, simple guitar chords for
backing. The overall arrange-
ment is just right: not overly
ripe or ludricrous; rather, a
sentimental stroll through radio-
land. As for Bowie's "Changes,"
it is simply the most undeniably
infectious rocker in a long while.
Other good-to-excellent 45's
include: "All the Young Dudes"
(Mott the Hoople, Columbia);
"Do Ya" (Move, UA); "Marcel-
la" (Beach Boys, Brother);
"School's Out" (Alice Cooper,
WB); "Waking Up Alone" (Paul
Williams, A&M); "Where is the
Love" (Roberta Flack & Donny
Hathaway, Atlantic); "Ventura
Highway" (America, WB); Star-
man" (David Bowie, RCA);
"Goodbye to Love" (Carpenters,
A&M); "Summer Breeze" (Seals
and Croft, WB): "Without You"
and "Spaceman" (Nilsson, RC-
A): "Your Mama Don't Dance"
(Loggins and Messina,dColum-
bia); "Jackie Wilson Said" (Van
Morrison, WB); "Levon" (Elton
John, Uni) and "Behind Blue
Eyes" (Who, Decca).
WORST ALBUM OF THE
YEAR: Finishing in a tie for
dead - and I mean DEAD -
last are The Pope Smokes Dope
by David Peel (Apple) and In
Search of Space by Hawkwind
(United Artists). In a short and
sweet three word phrase, DA-
VID PEEL STINKS. Obviously
in complete lack of talent, Peel
sings self-though clever anec-

Bull at Four (Cat Stevens, A&M);
Long John Silver (Jefferson Air-
plane, Grunt); Exile on Main
Street (Rolling Stones, RS);
Seventh Sojourn (Moody Bllues,
Threshold); Why Dontcha (West,
Bruce & Laing, Columbia); Low
Spark of Highheeled Boys (Traf-
fic, Island): A Nod's As Good As
a Wink (Faces, WB); Trilogy.
(Emerson, Lake and/or Palmer,
Cotillion); (ALMOST) Never a
Dull Moment (Rod Stewart, Mer-
cury): School's Out (Alice Coop-
er, WB); Honky Chateau (Elton.
John, Uni); Caravanserai (San-
tana, Columbia); Chicago V Chi-
cago, Columbia); Full House (J.
Geils Band, Atlantic) and last,
but certainly not least, Big Bam
bu (Cheech and Chong, Ode).
Well, that's about it. 1973 looks
promising though - new albums
soon (one to two months) from
Tull,_ Procol Harum, Yes (dou-
ble record set live), the Stones
(double record set live w/
Stevie Wonder), Neil Young,
Move, ELO, Beach Bolts, George
Harrison and many others -so
things are definitely looking Up.
Rave on.

* TONIGHT-January 9th--7 & 9 p.m.:
HENRY FONDA, GENE TIERNEY, DANA ANDREWS, and WARD BOND in
TBA(19CC)
Sharp wit and biting honesty. From the novel by Erskine Caldwell. The wily characters of the best-
seller and Jack Kirkland's ribald Broadway comedy is a cinematic masterpiece .of monumental pro-
portions. An impoverished Georgian back-country Depression-day farm family must raise $100 rent or
go to the poor-house. Charley Grapewin is memorable as the irascible old head of the household and
Marjorie Chambeau is delightfully insane as Sister Bessie, who pulls out her pitch-pipe and starts a
hymn whenever someone wants to argue with her. Gene Tierney plays sensual Ellie May.
r TOMORROW-January 10th-7 & 9p.m.:
JOHN WAYNE, CLAIRE TREVOR, and JOHN CARRADINE in
STAGE CAC (1939>
with THOMAS MITCHELL, ANDY DEVINE, and DONALD MEEK
A simple parable told with few flourishes and a superior command of the atmosphere and characteris-
tics of the old West. A stagecoach containing one kind or another of human misfits inches across the
desert to the town of Lordsburg. The contrasting characters receive a central force with the arrival of
the RINGO KID (hoo-ray!-John Wayne) who shelters them through attacks, problems, and personal

The specially engineered sole imitates walking on sand
