Sippie sings with all he

By Susan Makuch
I T WAS A happy birthday for
Sippie. Thank God!
The Birthday Celebration for Sippie
Wallace Firday night at the Michigan
Theatre was a festive occasion for
everyone, including the anxious
audience.
The evening began with Jim Dapogny
and his Chicago Blues Band. The
opening number, "At the Jazz Band
Ball," set the ball in motion. The crowd
was noticeably ready for some real jazz
and blues, and the lineup did not disap-
point.
Dr. John teased the audience by
failing to appear on cue. It may have
been -unplanned, but the delay in-
creased their anticipation. When he
finally ambled onto the stage, the
crowd roared. He satisfied their expec-
tations with a raspy vocal version of
"Such a Night." He accompanied him-
self with a nimble-fingered piano that
was hard to beat. On his next number,
Dr. John was joined by a set of bongos
for a stirring rendition of "Right Place,
Wrong Time."
The slight-of-build young woman that
was next on the impressive blues bill
was Bonnie Raitt. It took a few minutes
to recognize her, however. Gone were
the long tresses and faded blue jeans.
On this birthday night Bonnie debuted a
new visual image: shortly cropped
hair, shocking pink tights, a sky blue
elf-like mini skirt, and black leather
boots. Something changed outside, but
it was the same old blues-belter Bonnie

r soul
othe inside. She commented on her
appearance when she told the audience,
"The Plasmatics gave us a run for the
money yesterday, so I thought I'd dress
like her (Wendy 0. Williams) so you
guys won't feel like you've missed
anything."
Well, this crowd didn't miss anything
from Bonnie. She began with a heartfelt
song of her own, "Love Has No Pride."
Then there was wild applause for "I'd
Give Anything to See You Again."
When she announced "This song's for
Sippie," everyone roared. Bonnie did
justice to a Sippie cover, "Special
Delivery." It was "one of the first songs
I ever heard Sippie sing," Bonnie
recalled.
Finally, it was time for the birthday
girl. After 84 years, Sippie still knows
how to shout a song. Clad in a white
gown and cowboy hat, Sippie stood by
Jim Dapogny's piano and belted, "Why
Don't You Come Over to My House
Baby, Ain't Nobody Home But Me."
Her strong voice reverberated the
auditorium and made her loyal
followers scream with joy.
The "Texas Nightingale" did
everything but shirp. Her style almost
made you feel as though you were in a
small blues dive somewhere, listening
to Sippie sing just to you. Her slinky,
sultry version of "I Want You and I
Need You," drove the crowd into
hysterics. Sippie was singing the blues;
real heart-warming blues. For the last
few songs, Sippie was joined by the en-
tire lineup. She sang a duet with Bonnie,
"Don't Advertise You Man." Young
and old finally came together, and the
blues will never be the same.

for a client of his, Robert Gordon. The
song was recorded, and Marshall was
getting attention.
It was not long after that Marshall
found himself with a contract at War-
ner Bros. records. His first effort, en-
titled (so aptly), Marshall Crenshaw,
contains a collection of eleven original

compositions. There is one classic
rockabilly tune, Arthur Alexander's
"Soldier Of Love." The album is very
impressive as a debut work, no doubt due
to Marshall's talent and perseverance.

Bye.Bye,
Birdie'
performed
so-so
By Chris Lauer
YE, BYE BIRDIE, this year's
Soph Show production, looked like
. By the energy that the cast and
chorus put into the performance and by
the little out-of-character glances of ex-
citement that they now and then ex-
changed, it must have been a great ex-
perience.
However, the execution did not come
off as professional, and the funniest
thing in the play may have been when
the prop stove almost fell over. The in-
vidual performances ranged from
ood to poor, but none were consistent
in all areas of acting, singing, and dan-
cing.
One really unmemorable moment of
acting was when a bartender was
cleaning a glass for a ridiculous length
of time and all the while going through
an incredible array of faces that con-
stituted overacting even for a
melodrama.
Weakness in the choreography gave
he impression of anarchy, awkwar-
ess, and too small a stage. Under
closer control of the director and
producer, the show might have been
funnier, the heroes and villians might
have been more clear-cut, and the
grand finale climax might have been
more pronounced.
Bye, Bye Birdie was not a bad show.
Considering that it was entirely put on
by sophomores and freshmen, one has
to expect inexperience to show. It
