By HARRY HAMMITT
The record market is as over-
flooded as at any time, both with
releases by old performers and
young ones. In a situation like
this the accepted performers
hold a definite advantage be-
cause average buyers don't have
time to fool around with a lot of
unknowns when they can safely
settle for a known product. But
new bands do continue to make
headway.
Cat Stevens' guitar player,
Alum Davies, has recently re-
leased his first album called
Daydo (Columbia KC 31469). As
might be expected, the major in-
fluence on the music is Cat
Stevens who produced the album
and also plays piano on it. The
main trouble is that Davies

doesn't have Stevens' skill of
composition or singing. The play-
ing is fine throughout, but noth-
ing new comes to light. Prob-
ably the most interesting song
is "I'm Late" which comes
originally from the Walt Disney
adaptation of "Alice in Wonder-
land." All in all, Davies is much
better off backing up Cat Stevens
than performing on his own.
Mother's Finest (RCA LSP-
4790) is a band out of Atlanta
which has really been paying its
dues for the past few years; ac-
cording to the liner notes "it
seems like they've played every
olace there is between Texas and
Virginia." The band has worked
hard and are a very tight unit.
All members of the band know

... some new releases

their individual instruments and
play them well, particularly Mike
Keck, the keyboard-player who
can really move out on the
piano. The real trouble is that,
although the band performs all
their numbers flawlessly, there
is nothing new on the album.
This band is the type you might
expect to go see at one of the
summer rock concerts in Ann
Arbor. The most enjoyable cuts
are their versions of Dave Ma-
son's "Feelin' Alright" which,
although heavily overused, the
band does admirably, and "Love
the One Y6u're With" by Steve
Stills which they probably do
better than the original.
Soft Machine is a British
group that has a solid following
in America ever since their ad-
vent about five years ago. They
are an unusual band because
they have been saddled with at
least a mild rock image in the
United States, but reality they
are almost pure jazz, making
them one of the only young En-
glish jazz groups to win any
popularity in the rock world.
They have two excellent soloists
in Elton Dean who plays Alto
Sax, Saxello, and Electric Piano;
and Mike Ratledge who plays
Organ, and Electric Piano. On
this album, Five (Columbiab K
31604), they are joined by bas-
sist Roy Babbington and drum-
mer John Marshall, both recently
of Nucleus. The album is not
radically dfferent than their
other recent ones, perhaps there
is a bit more experimentation
than previously.

If you ever wondered whether
Odysseus had the right to dis-
g-ise himself and sneak home
after a 20 year absence, then
you'll love Kurt Vonnegut, Jr's
first play, Hapny Birthday, Wan-
da June which opened Wayne
State Universty's B o n s t 11 e
Theatre season Friday.
Vonnegut's play, first wrtten in
the fifties and snce revised, is a
come sa'ire on intellectual
"truths" and precepts for "right"
livng. The play concerns a mod-
ern Odysseus. Harold Ryan, who,
along with his sidekick, Colonel
Looseleaf Harper, returns home
after eight years in the jungle.
At Ryan's behest, they surprise
their families by arriving un-
announced,
Ryan's problems with the
world and his self-image are
absent from Colonel Harper, ex-
cellently portrayed 'by Orson
Wingo. In his first role on the
Bonstelle stage, Wingo's per-
formance is easily the funniest
and most credible of the entire
cast. He reveals a Vonnegut
creation who gains our sympathy
as a pathetic, vulnerable and
caring individual
Herb Shuttle, the vacuum
cleaner salesmanand suitor for
Penelope is played by Thomas
Snackman. Shuttle is an imma-
ture, hero-worshipping eagle
scout who comes across in
Spackman as a melba toast
version of Humphery Bogart
and Columbo. He is not only
tev.

entertaining, but imparts real
energy to the rest of the cast.
Throughout the first and sec-
ond acts, the audience registered
their approval with literally un-
controlled laughter. The cast,
for the most part, skillfully
handled the bantering dialogue.
Vonnegait's thirds act, however,"
is far different from the rest of
the play-in tone as well as
quality. Without adequate trans-
lation, the act begins an overly
long wrap-up, rough in spots,
and unconvincing. The script is
not strengthened by the lead
players most involved in the
closing action.
Roberta Dahlberg as Penelope
Ryan simply "acts," anticipating
lines and projecting studied re-
actions. She damages the play as
a whole by creating an unnatural
distance between players. Nich-
olas Calanni as peace-loving
Woodley is adequate throughout
the play until thethirdsact where
he becomes so calm as to make

his presence a yawn. Dale
Franks as Ryan did a beautiful
job in the first two acts. He was
forceful, natural and alive as
only the blood-thirsty Harold
Ryan can be. However, at the
crucial moment when Ryan must
realize his pretentious living and
deal with the dissolution of self-
image, not only does .the self-
made hero dissolve, but Franks
loses touch with his character.
Our visitors from heaven add
another superb dimension to the
play, both physically and intel-
lectually. They reveal a secular,
shuffleboard-crazy paradise, thus
bringing life to Vonnegut's fan-
tasy other-world. Wanda June's
innocence and gaiety are appar-
ent in the performance by 17-
year-old Ruth Fauman. Donald
Dailey is superb as the nazi
war criminal, the "Beast of
Yugoslavia" Colonel von Konigs-
wald. Dena Margolis is equally
successful as Mildred, Ryan's
third wife.
