Kicking Quaalude
According to Drug Help of-
ficials, quaaludes - a common
street drug in the city - are
highly addictive and withdrawal
is a dangerous process.
Withdrawal, they say, is safe
only under medical supervision
and "cold turkey" withdrawals
can be fatal in some cases.
Both Drug Help (761-HELP)
and the Free People's Clinic (761-
8952) can arrange medically sup-
ervised withdrawal. These agen-
cies urge anyone who suspects
he or she may be addicted to
call or visit.

Alice and crazies
"Alice is down the rabbit hole
again, but this time the under-
ground is deadly quiet, because
the crazies know that children
should be seen and not heard."
That's how the Ann Arbor Mime
Troupe describes the show they'll
present at the Civic Theatre
building, tonight through Satur-
day, at 8.o'clock. Admission is
free.
This new treatment of Lewis
Carroll's original manuscript
grows from the troupe's w or k
with non-verbal drama in London
last summer.

FREDDIE KING - Texas Can-
onball (Shelter Records - SW-
8913).
So you're tired of listening to
the same old bluesmen playing
the same old blues. You say you
wouldn't even mind hearing the
same songs as long as someone
did a good job on them?
Check out Freddie King - The
Texas Cannonball. King is back-
ed by Leon Russell (who also
produced the album) on piano,
but King's hard driving guitar
is always out front pushing the
band on.
Projecting a combination of
rock and blues, the band infuses
excitement and imagination in-
to a number of songs written by
Russell. Also included on the
album is a betautifully done job
on an Isaac Hayes tune, "Can't
Trust Your Neighbor,"
Freddie plays lead guitar and
sings on all cuts with this al-
bum may be on his way to
joining two other fine b 1 a c k
blues Kings - B.B. and Albert.
COCHRAN - Wayne Cochran
and the C.C. Riders (Epic -
E30989) .
You remember Wayne Coch-

ran don't you? That old man
with huge white pompadour and
the see-through shirts open to
the waist exposing his enormous
bloated alcoholic belly - sure,
that old guy who played L as
Vegas all the time, remember?
Well, Cochran and The CC.
riders have changed, Accos'ding
to the record sleeve "Wayne
Cochran and The C.C. Riders
have gone funky. To dig up a
funky expression - they Cook!"
Much to my surprise they real-
ly do cook. They took the polish-
ed big band sound they h a d
and with all new material done
by Cochran and Charlie Brent,

leader of the C.C. Riders, chang-
ed themselves into a funky,
down home blues sounding band.
Cochran was always a g o o d
singer and with his voice deep
down into the rough range he
shows he hasn't forgotten how to
forcefullyhbelt out a tune. Brent
did all the arranging and has
left in just enough big band
touches to give this album a dis-
tinctive flavor.
With Cochran's hair down to
-his shoulders instead of piled
atop his head and The C.C. Rid-
ers looking like hippies they
might even be interesting to see
live.

BACH FOR BAND - London
Symphonic Band; Gerallt Lelie
Williams, cond. (Columbia M
31126).
This is not an album for the
discerning listener. Despite good
intentions, and some actually de-
cent arrangements (if one takes
of the ethical blinders one must
wear to listen to Bach transcrib-
ed for band in the first place),
the album fails primarily be-
cause the ensemble can't cut
the music. There are some rath-
er obvious bloopers in the "Lit-
tle" fugue in G minor, and the
clarinets and high D trumpets-
vie for the boody prize in the
Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29. Mich-
igan band members will pro-
bably turn away in disgust; with
the same arrangements t h e y

could do a far superior j o b .
This is the first of a project-
ed series. The playing had bet-
ter improve.
On to more sublime things.
Jennie Tourel, the noted mezzo-
soprano, gave a fabulous recital
in Alice Tully Hall two years
ago that showed that the years
have had little effect on t h e
beauty and clarity of her voice.
Desto Records recently releas-
ed a complete recording of the
concert, and all lovers of real
art would be wise to acquire it.
(DC 7118-9) For breathtaking in-
terpretations and transcendental
subtleties, there is probably no
one to touch her. The program
includes four songs by Liszt, Tro-
is Chansons de Bilitis by De-
bussy, some Russian and French
songs, and there are five en-
cores.
The only flaw in the recording
is the deafening applause, re-
corded, I guess, from the aud-
ience; the tpe picked'tiplttle
comment from people nearby
aswell. Otherwise everyth'ng is
divine, including the insightful
accompaniment of James Le-
vine, piano, and Gary Karr, dou-
ble bass.
An amazing record that I dis-
covered a while ago features
music boxes playing arrange-
ments of operatic tunes. It's
called "Wound Up Opera" and
it's on Columbia (MS 7338).The
music box was the juke box
of the last century, and there
are a generous number of them
still around, many of them in
large private collections. Those
on this recording come the Rita
Ford Collection and include a
rare Malignon, a Plerodennique
and a Nicole Freres, in works of
Rossini, Verdi, Wagner and
others. The effect is wonderful,
the stereo excellent, and t h e
whole experience anreal trip.
