3 General News ATTORNEYS TRACK LEAK 3 ~Angered RSO Kills Early Airplay On Bee Gees Desist Orders ssued To 8 Major Stations tls t t tit RRSON LOS ANGELES -RSO had cease and desist orders delivered Monday (22) to a number of radio stations nationwide who were prematurely airing an unauthorized tape of the new Bee Gees album "Spirits Having Flown" All stations ceased playing the tape once papers were served. Stations allegedly receiving advanced tapes were KHJ -AM in Los Angeles; WLS -AM in Chicago; WNBC -AM in New York; KULF- AM in Houston; Y -100 in Miami; WTAE -AM and 96KX -FM in Pittsburgh and KFRC -AM in San Franciste. Certain stations started playing the tape over the Jan. 12 weekend, nearly three weeks before the album was to be released. RSO attorneys in New York are investigating where the leak came from. Those stations which received the cease and desist orders were spread out across the country and not confined to any one broadcasting network. And in Canada. the CHUM group of sta- dens haj cease and desist orders hand delivered'fuesday 1231, They had been playing cuts from the album since Jan. 13. Even though the above stations have refrained from playing the tape. RSO has already experienced repercussions. Firstly, the RSO game plan to maximize initial sales and airplay impact has been hampered. "We lose sales on premature airplay," says Rich Fitzgerald, vice president of promotion. "The first two weeks of airplay are the most intense and without stuck in the market, we're going to lose sales. You can never get that first week impact back." As a result, RSO rush -released the album Wednesday (24) -two weeks earlier than its scheduled Feb. release. RSO's plan was to coordinate the album's radio release as close as possible to when the album would be available in stores to capitalize on that maximum initial airplay. "t's not like we were sitting on copies in the warehouse," states Fitzgerald. "We had to rush our presses to get a few million units pressed to go a week earlier." Also damaged arc the reputations and trust of RSO's promotion force who must now explain to other stations how the competition received advance copies. The damages go beyond the Bee Gees," says Fitzgerald. "Other stations that didn't get the lape will blame RSO. We never give exclusives and we have to protect our interest with other radio stations. "Our promotion men had a rough two weeks patching up relationships. magine walking into another station in Pittsburgh. They're lucky just to be able to walk into that station." While premature leakage of a hot new album is nothing new, there has rarely been a detailed followup as to where the leak came from. "Our obligation is to find out where the copy came from instead of leaving it alone," Fitzgerald says.

A recent survey of top publicity executives at major labels shows that publicity no longer means merely servicing the press with promotional disks and artist biographies and overseeing the guest list at press parties. Aside from a new emphasis on experienced personnel. and the expansion of individual publicity depart- menus, one of the most important changes in the record companies' approach to public relations has stances. Capitol, RCA, the CBS Records Group, MCA, A &M and Warner Bros. Records are among the labels that have taken giant strides in making the publicity function more responsive to the demands of the marketplace - through interdepartmental coordination. While the personnel structure and specific duties of publicity departments vary from label to label. a uniform approach has emerged in recent years. Among the most vital moves arc these: The image of the label itself There is a growing awareness of the long -term value of publicity, which is replacing the former emphasis on publicity as a short -term, service function. Press departments are now more concerned with mounting creative campaigns than engaging in what one publicist calls "the battle of the press releases." Publicity has been idled as a key factor in sustaining the careers of artists who do not enjoy regular airplay or produce hit singles. Randy Newman, Leon Redbonc and Lou Reed are examples of this. Artist publicity has expanded By MARTN N7 Z situation is far from hopeless and that Milwaukee will "tough it out." Wednesday (24) saw another foot of snow piled atop the record already on the ground -some 331/2 inches, most of which has fallen off and on since New Year's Eve. The city has qualified for federal disaster aid and the National Guard just spent a week pulling 1,500 stalled or abandoned cars out of the paths of city snow plows. "There's no place else left to put the damn stuff," muttered one record shop owner faced with shoveling out his front door again. Al Goetz, assistant secretary of the Musicians Assn. Local Eight, was the only staff worker able to make it to the office during the Wednesday snow. "We've had a lot of cancellations these past weeks. Six out of O musicians have not been playing due to the storms and the impact of the disco scene. "This is the first New Year's Eve that missed because of the weather in 39 years." says Goetz, a sax player. Goetz says "acts of God" clauses in contracts allow cancellations in such cases of bad weather. "The weather problems are bringing about a major loss of earnings for musicians here, but we are just shrugging our shoulders. Not much can be done about it," he adds. "Everybody lost the new year, except the downtown hotels," says Chuck rvin. vice president of Artists Corp. of America, a talent agency which handles 200 attractions throughout the Midwest. New mport into a specialized function insr,lving. separate departments charged with touring, black music marketing, television talk show and variety show exposure. trade press relations and international coverage. The continued influence of rock'n'roll on other areas of popular culture, such as movies. has caused the established media to focus more attention on contemporary music in all its forms. Publicists now deal as much with the country's national news weeklies as they do with the rock press. "Artist publicity has really come of age as an important marketing tool in the post two years." believes (Continued on page JO) '-ronically, when the shows have been rescheduled, they got snowed out again. But we are reaching compromises on payments," he says. "We had one group from Ohio scheduled to play Eau Claire in Northern Wisconsin. They got there three days late." "There have been some inconveniences and some problems, but we're making it," says John Ertl of Contemporary Talent.

They actually lived up to their advance publicity. As a matter of fact, they more than lived up to it. They far and away surpassed it. Their first single, "HólAçjte Line,' reached top -five in all three trades and is on the verge of going gold. Their new single, it'll Supply the Love; is destined to become an even bigger smash hit. And the album itself just passed the platinum mark. With that kind of success, it's no wonder Toto has been nominated for a Grammy Award as `Best New Group': "Tote- On Columbia Records and Tapes.

RETAL PLOYS Chains Create New Marketing To Sidestep Superstars' Void LOS ANGELES -Resourceful retail chain executives haven't let the recent dearth of superstar product deeply dent sales volume. While awaiting the new Bee Gees album due Monday (291, they've ingeniously conceived a wide variety of marketing ploys to bulwark traffic. Barrie Bergman. president of the Record Bar 80 -plus store chain, long before the tepid 1978 holiday season mapped out an expanded institutional ad budget for reports Jill Bartholomew, chief of Ad- Ventures, the firm's in-house agency. "Because we expect the first Bee Gee heavy advertising to run about mid- February, we were preparing our first saturation campaign of 30- second tv spots late in 1978." she explains. The tv spots were prepared so that the anginal jingle music and graphics could be converted to multiple use by voiceover narration. Bartholomew used original jingle music written in 1976 by Winslow Stillman for the chain. She produced the spots herself in about two days time. Early indications are that the spots pulled well during the current soft period. Allan Rosen of the Flipsidc chain, Lubbock. Tex., reflects the aggressive Record Bar attitude. "We advertise institutionally or with label support 52 weeks a year. More than 809 will be radio net Now it's out-of-pocket. Our 14 stores have been instructed to clean up shop.

MCA and Capitol ndustries -EM are strongly rumored in talks with several of the last major indie labels. Both parent firms -MCA here and EM abroad -acknowledge the vital importance of their respective distribution arms to future growth. Polygram Distribution has used the blockbuster sales of "Grease' and "Saturday Night Fever" to leapfrog into a stronger position in the domestic market. And the emergence of a new RCA and A &M venture as a much stronger distribution force will have greater effects this year and beyond. The big branch operations are actively courting the remaining major independents. ABC is known to be in discussions with both MCA and Polygram. Arista and Capitol talks are strongly rumored, though denied MC '79 June Loews, Monte -Carlo by t Ansta chi live L).r.1. see separate story on page lour t A key Motown executive did visit Polygram headquarters in Germany last year, although both sides denied the trip.

Millenium, which left Casablanca (Polygram) last year for indie distribution, though most of its acts shifted to Casablanca. is expected to wind up with RCA. The plight of indie distribution is underscored by a look at this week's Billboard charts, and those of a year ago. Only 10 of the top 100 albums - the highest at number 27 --and a dozen of the Hot 100 singles -number 14 is the best -are on indie logos (excluding A &M).

Altshuler worked for Atlantic and Riverside before moving to CBS. Altshuler was nstrumental in Regehr also believes the publicity function begins with an artist's sign - tng and should involve the coordination of sales and advertising from the outset. ndeed. artist campaigns at Warner Bros. are mapped out by a take notice.

"The corporate thinking here is that marketing is a coordinated outlets in addition to their use as instore attention -getters. "Some of us feel it's the coming thing;" Davis adds. but how to use it hasn't really been defined yet." One of the major complaints cited by many of the publicists interviewed for this article is that some label executives are still governed by the notion that "publicity doesn't sell records." Herb Hetman: RCA's veteran having the function of artist p.r publicity for each of the CBS labels transferred to each label's marketing division. a move begun about 21 years ago.

Frequent meetings among these department heads help determine which acts have "the best shot' al gaining media attention.

Davis explains. "not something where people go off on separate ego trips." He meets regularly with department heads involved in merchandising. sales and promotion to lay out a uniform approach to working an act. We bounce ideas off each other "Press does sell records." asserts Mike Gormley. director of communications at A &M. "A public relations campaign can have a lot to do with the success of artists who sell in the range of to records. can think of artists such as the Runaways. Peter Allen and Joan Ar- WB's Bob Merlis types a story. closely with promotion. product management. merchandising and artist development resulting in all areas working around the same timetable and being able to exchange ideas before an album was released." he points out. And it's worked very well." Among other things. the p.r. departments at CBS "move quickly to get early comments from critics to show program directors and others that the opinion makers have reacted positively," Altshuler notes. These "opinion makers." another veteran publicist points out. are fairly resistant to hype. Bob Regehr. vice president /director of artist development and publicity for Warner Bros.

"Conscqun.ls. the overall quality et p.r has risen considerably. The das, of hypc.tic gone. The talent has to be there " Capitol's Dan Davis checks some tour color photos. Warner Bros.. Regehr sometimes gets involved in the actual ad campaign, "more to help establish a direction than writing the actual copy." he says. The look of the ad is important to us." Warner Bros. was also among the first of the major labels to involve its field promotional forces in the p.r function,a move which increases the opportunities for a label to garner media attention through local newspapers. college rublic:theus and local television outlet, Another major change of altitude among label publicists is that specialized rock music publications with limited circulation are now considered an important part of the image -building pruests -.

Again, this is an example of publicity's new approach. Years ago it was enough to routinely servies reviewers and journalists and hope they would respond. Now publicists try to inmate stories by appealing to a journalist's personal taste. As a restilt. some publicity departments are divided nto specially areas.

"it doesn't always happen" that an act enjoys a national breakout so a label's field forces are often the first clue to where an act is selling Once that's determined. Davis is able to ntarshall the various forces under his command. "We lake that area and expand it." he says. "Radio ads arc almost automatic. l'oint-of- purchase material s nest.

"The symphonies were cancelled because the Chicago people couldnt get out of Chicago and the Milwaukee musicians could not get to their concert because of storms." 'The economics of the arts don't easily permit cancellations because there's difficulty in rescheduling.' says Archie Sacaran, the Center's director. "'m happy that even though Mother Nature hit us with numerous snow storms, the Center only had to cancel 2% of its programming bemuse the performers were not able to come in." Reactions concerning the effects of the weather differ from club owner to club owner, usually depending on the location of their facility. "The weather has definitely hurt us," agrees Rich Emery. manager ul the new Park Avenue disco in down. town Milwaukee. "People listen to the weather broadcasts around here and they don't drive if it sounds bad. However, we had a great New Year's Eve. Must have had 400 people in here." Only one club worker was able to make it to the Attic West nightclub at the height of winter's latest storm Wednesday. "'m getting my work done and then 'm getting out of here... if can," she said. "Milwaukee people will go out regardless of the weather," says Randy Petrouske, one of the owners of Shelter From The Storm, a northside club.

"Oh yeah. there was that. risen derailment on the next block dunng that blizzard a couple of weeks ago. They evacuated the whole area and shut us down. guess they thought the train was going to explode." Stores have been hit hard, with several managers saying they have lost up to 504 of their usual business compared with the same time last year. "When the weather clears. we do excellently." says Dave Roffers, manager of the Sound Stage outlet in the covered Bay Shore mall. He was alone in his store Wednesday because none of his other sales staff could make it through the drifts. "We have had trouble with deliveries: that's been a handicap all right.

"A lot of times the record cornpony just pays a re -use fee," says de- Passe. "and uses the same tracks that were laid down for the picture on the soundtrack album. rather than trymg to come up with unique ways to present the music.

HANFORD SEARL Billboard charts tell me what's going on in the rest of the country that may not be here on the west coast. Mitch Perliss VP Merchandising THE WHEREHOUSE CHAN Los Angeles,Callf. By DOUG HALL NEW YORK -f disco is replacing rock'n roll across the country. nner City Broadcasting's new national program director Frankie Crocker will be among those leading the transition. Crocker is back in New York at WBLS -FM making adjustments to put the station hack on top in the ratings race by shifting the station from a mix of rock rab and disco to an almost pure disco sound. And Crocker will probably take similar action in Detroit and Los Angeles. nner City's new acquisition, WLBS -FM Detroit. has already been shined to disco and he's studying a similar move for KRE- AM -FM Berkeley. now in a jazz/ soul format. Crocker is a strong believer in disco. "This town has gone disco crazy. When rock started it went rock crazy. Disco is definitely replacing rock.' he says. "Rock is no more important than dixieland jazz in New York right now." Crocker enthuses. "Department stores have disco departments. The clothing industry has gotten into it. Night clubs are opening up," lie notes. Crocker says disco represents a new culture. t's a musical revolution that transcends color and age groups." He reasons. "first there was Frank Sinatra. then Elvis Presley. the Beatles and now it's disco "fs so superior to the music that was happening before. Very creative recordings arc being made." he adds n addition to planning the formats of the nner City stations. Crocker is back at his old stand on WBLS from 4 to 8 p.m.. a spot he lent as well as the title of program director. when a payola scandal broke two years ago. Crocker has been off the air for two years while fighting a perjury charge in connection with the scandal. Prosecution finally ended in a mistrial and Crocker says. "t doesn't matter now. lt's all over." While he was off the air Crocker attended the Univ. of Southern California where he studied acting and directing -"one of my fantasies" - and did some work for Polydor. He came back to WBLS last week. took everything off the station and "just came in with my own ideas" His ideas are more disco. Those arc the records like. Those are the hits. Were in the business of playing for young audiences. t used to be just up dance music. but its now up to 140 beats For the past two years 've been gonig ht school haen't heard the New York sound." lie explains But he sass he's not may as long as have ms hearing" t r,vsr now hills the station as "l hue And More." implying the formal is not 1009 disco. "My pro. gumming has always been aimed at the general market. biggest market can. 1 go alter shy listen to what onti s across my desk " Crocker sass he does not listen io the new market cadeh in New Yolk \\'K'fl1J M. hsco92 " you lesicu then you Marl playing.atsh op know what they're playing lies'', playing des., WKTJ is like a pail of nie ft's programmed hs ms lot Met.assistant (Wanda it.sumis) She k titeil from nie." The "more" Crocker adds is gen. erall) ballads He plays Barn White's "Just The Way You Are," t A Morning Partners: Dick Cook. left. and Bill Thompson exchange onair witticisms. HONOLULU'S KGU Thompson And Cook On AM Morning Slot HONOLULU -The way KGU - AM morning personality Bill Thompson looks at it. his show not only has no competition. but he's also thrilled to be working in his native town with a man who used to be his radio idol. Dick Cook. Some people call his show "The Bill Thompson Program." Others refer to the 6 a.m. to O a.m. program as "The Thompson And Cook Show." reflecting news director Dick Cook's expanded role as a team member of the morning drive slot. n either case, there's no other team doing morning AM radio here and because they seem to work so well together. their popularity has mushroomed since they began their present gig n July Both Thompson and Cook brought years of experience in the business with them when they began working together three years ago. Thompson began in Hawaii on KK -AM in ironically working with Ron Jacobs. who holds down the same morning slot now on KKUA -AM. He then went to the Mainland and worked extensively in radio. initially on KWOW -AM in Pamona, Calif. ( 1958) and then as program and operations manager for KGBS -AM in Los Angeles in the 1960s. While on the Mainland. Thompson also man- for example " would hate to see the time cone when you couldn't get into a ballad." he adds. Crocker does his own show with- OM any planning.

Just what Crocker's relationship By DON W E.LER aged the Smothers Brothers. did production coordination for Glen Campbell, and was a tv announcer and warm -up personality for those acts as well as John Byner and John Denver. Tinng of what he calls the "Mainland rat race," Thompson returned to Hawaii and worked at KMV- AM on Maui (1972) and then KPO- FM and K AM us Honolulu (1973). After a managerial stint with Cecilio and Kapono, he turned to KGU in Honolulu. As he explains: " went over to KGU in 16; liked the people there and liked the sound of the station. t reminded me of KMPC -AM or KSFO -AM and that was the kind of sound wanted to go with. Notes Thompson: "lt took us a while to finally get into the groove. where we can communicate by ryes alone. We know who has the punch line. There's never an ego-trip problem. f his got it, he's got it We've worked out excellent signals" Cook has been in Hawaii since His radio career goes hack to 1936 and he has worked at stations in Utica, N.Y_ and San Francisco where he toiled for KSFO 10 years. Many of the people who visit the slands from San Francisco know Cook from his KSFO days as newsman there as WBLS program director Hal Jackson is is not clear. Crocker sass. "'ve known Hal since l\'e been in Ncw York. He's a professional, We're working together." He scoffs at rumors that Jackson might leave the station. "He owns part of the company :" he replies. Crocker says Jackson will concentrate on the-other markets where nner Cris has stations. "He will function like an operations manager," he says. Last week the station threw a party at Studio 54 to celebrate Cracker's return. The guest of honor arrived on a white horse. The knight who cromev to save everybody rides a white horse," Crocker quips. s Crocker such a knight? Crocker won't admit to that. but nner Cits president Pepe Sutton might be looking to Crocker to do just that for WBLS in the neat Arbitron rating book.opyrlyrnu:..

Some people are still trying to figure out Elvis Costello. But most of us don't question it, we just love it. This guy has recorded three albums in just over a year, and you know what? Every one is a killer. Elvis Costello albums are used in some music clubs to warm up audiences (each of his songs is greeted with cheering recognition). And the feedback we get tells us that Elvis Costello would be elected "The Artist We Wish We Had by just about every other record label. Everyone in the business knows how good Elvis Costello is, and how big he's on his way to becoming. And so do we. HEAP ratuc.

George Dukes most recent Epic album sold more than all his non -Epic solo albums, combined. lt's been a long road for George Duke, and he pi. keel up converts all along the way. But it wasn't till he hit upon his current outrageously explicit, funky, Dukes image that an explosion happened. Now George Duke has a large and loyal following waiting to hear what he's going to come up with next. Count us in as part of that following. M OY HACHEL After playing clubs in the South since the early sixties, the members of Molly Hatchet are ready for what's happening to them. And what's happening to them is the immediate success of their debut Epic album. The late Ronnie Van Zant stated that Molly Hatchet had achieved the sound he wanted Lynyrd Sky - nyrd to a ols e rots. Fans of Southern Rock, as well as fan, of Northern Rock, all agree that Molly really has something special going for it. And so do owners of record stores all over the country who've had a hard time keeping Molly's album in stock. DAVD GLMOUR. A year ago, everyone knew the name Pink Floyd, but few people knew the name David Gilmour. This year, people know both. David Gilmour's first solo album was an unquali- fied artistic and commercial success. t established him as a master guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. even outside of the Floyd context. Frankly, we have no way of knowing if there are any plans for a follow -up. All that we, and David Gilmour fans, and Pink Floyd fans, can do is hope.

45 Disco Labels Adjust To Consumer Disco LP Gripes 45 Continued from page 1 LP and finding that they arc receiving a shortened version of their favorite hit. The problem was created when most labels began phasing out commenial 2 -inch disco disks, while maintaining copies for promotional purposes only. The decision to cut down on the release of commercial 12 -inch disks was based in part on the feeling that the product cut into album sales. One interesting "adjustment" occurred last fall when Polydor Records release of Alicia Bridges' " Love The Night Life" began picking up steam. After a press run of about copies, the label inserted the longer 12 -inch version of the song in the LP. and eliminated sales of the commercial l2- incher. The move reportedly came after an estimated 60,000 copies of the disk had been sold. A sticker was placed on the new Bridges pressing informing the consumer that it contained the full length version of "1 Love The Night Life." A spokesperson at Polydor states that the label's tendency is to no longer release commercial 12 -inch disks." n a similar move, Prelude Records has also reacted to demand created by a 12 -inch version of n The Bush" by making the long version available on the LP. This step was taken several months after the 12 -inch had been in commercial release. According to Joe Kolsky. sales manager. the replacement of the longer version of the tune did not necessitate the removal of any other cuts from the album. Prelude does not offer commercial l2- inchers. but the label is trying to get as many cuts as possible from an LP on to 12 -inch promotion formats. This is to enable discos and /or radio stations to achieve the same sound level on more than just one or two cuts from the album. While TK Records has no set standards in the matter. the label is "trying to stay within the limits" of 12 -inch time on its disco album products. Jim Samson. TK's national sales manager. claims a "minimum feedback" on the situation. perhaps since the company does not have a big spread between the two disco versions. At Casablanca, there are many variables. according to Larry Harris. senior vice president and general manager. "There are times when a producer does make a more exciting 12 -inch disco mix. But each case is different. Some 12- inchers are merely offering repetitive parts." We don't feel this hurts the LPs. since they gave the disco fan an opportunity to get into the act and stimulate interest in their other disco cuts." Casablanca's 2- inchers depart from normal 12 -inch form by including both sessions on one side. which makes them more suitable for party time use. explains Harris. Bill Spitalsky, vice president of Spring Records. says his label began equalizing the LP and 12 -inch versions sometime ago. At Salsoul, Chuck Gregory. vice,y president of marketing, declares. "We're trying to get reasonably close to the 12 -inch version on albums, but we're concerned about the quality of sound, so we won't go over 19 minutes on a side." Gregory claims the labels com- mercial 12- inchers can sell as many as copies, but the label's main thrust in disco is to sell an LP. He notes that there are so ninny variables in disco promotion that one day 'm completely convinced about tth,lt 'm doing mid 'lie nt,t.1.1y Lita not s0 Safe.

J. Thomas, born again rock singer. to some 1,400 excited delegates at the National Religious Broadcasters' annual convention here last week. He was professional, he was soulful and despite his recent religious conversion. he is obviously an ambitious as well as a happy man. "When performers like B. J. experience the Lord. they don't abandon their secular careers," says Doug McCarthy, Washington sales representative for Word publishing, a subsidiary of ABC, which publishes Christian books and records. Along with other born again rock stars like Dan Peek, who used to play lead guitar for America, and Chuck Girard, formerly of the Hon - dells. Thomas is "taking Christ out there on the cutting edge," Mc- Carthy says. Thomas, Peek and Girard all record for Word t) JEAN i. Chnsuan record companies are more than happy to assist born again performers, who see their missions as reaching young people through rock 'n' roll Christian music sales are booming, record companies are producing more and more Jesus rock and some of it is beginning to cross over for airplay on secular radio stations and purchased by secular record buyers. "Two contemporary Christian rock albums are up for Grammys this year." says Bill Traylor, an airplay promotion manager for Nashville's Benson Publishing Co., which produced birth LPs on its Greentrec label. "The Lady s A Child" features Reba, a singer /songwriter of the Carol King variety, who includes a 1930 tune on her LP.

By capitalizing the "Y" in you, Jesus rockers transform regular rock 'n' roll lyrics like "Your love really makes me high /Got to find a way to get back home to you" from romantic phrases to religious sentiment. "What Christians object to in disco music are the lyrics." says Benson's Traylor. "There's nothing wrong with the beat itself." "We've got a book coming out on le history of the Jesus rock explosion," says McCarthy. "t's called 'Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Mosier Apparently. he no longer does. Last year, McCarthy reports, Word's metro Washington sales more than doubled. Nationally, Word claims in excess of 30 million in last year's sales. Two new LPs, B.J. Thomas' "Happy Man" and a live recording of a Jesse Jackson "PUSH" concert in Kansas City. are expected io cross over for sales to secular record buyers. Already, Schwartz. the Wash- ington distributor, has ordered 15,000 of the "PUSH Concert" LP, an unprecedented initial purchase for religious music. "We're seeing more and more crossover," says Traylor. "Last year, 'Oasis Of Love,' a David ngles single on one of Benson's labels, made it to the country charts. We've just signed Jeannie C. Riley and we're creating a whole new label for her, specializing in crossover country artists." Word alone has 11 contemporary Christian labels with names like Light. Myrrh, Good News, Seed and Solid Rock. Benson has Grcentree, and then there are the newcomers like Singspiration. and Messianic Records, which specializes in music by born again Jews.

At the same time, several members arc taking on outside production projects. The band is gelling set to tour in support of its latest ABC LP, "Numbers' with another tour on the drawing board with Chaka Khan to support its upcoming ABC LP. According to group keyboardrst Kevin Murphy. Chaka contractually has two more LPs with the group to tape. Rufus' "Numbers" marks the first time the group has recorded without a female lead singer, "which naturally gives us a different sound." says Murphy. Paulette McWilliams was its first lead singer. Tom Maiden, group guitarist. s taking over vocal lead parts on "Numbers." Maiden believes audiences will hear still another sound on the next LP with Chaka because of Quincy Jones involvement. Jones is producing the project. Says Murphy: "We have grown. and since going out on her own Chaka has also grown The melding of lhtse two entities will breathe new life into the creativity of the group. Quincy s addition will be another element. So we expect the next album with Chaka to sound different."

"Jazz fusion. which was not called that at the time. (about six years ago) broadened to r &b. However. it was not a conscious effort.. we just wanted to make good music." All members sing lead but now hrl there is no singled out lead vocalist. "we wane to depict one entity as opposed to a featured singer." says Maiden.

On the solo piano side are commitments to record the Chopin Nocturnes. Brahms' Handel Variations and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. And due for completion is his collaboration with ArthurGrumiaux in the complete Beethoven sonatas for piano and violin. Three of the 10 in the set remain to be donc. Although Arrau confesses ter an abiding love for chamber music, he has no other immediate recording plans in this intimate repertory area. But he recalls that earls in his career he had his own trio and that in past years he performed with saac Stern and Pablo Casals le hints that it would be premature to rule out later chamber music disk projects " still want to record as much as possible." says the 75- year -old artist. who has been at it since the when he cul some sides for Electrula in Germany.

53 Country 53 Production And a Label Debuted By Halsey Co. By GERRY WOOD NASHVLLE -The long anticipated move of the Jim Halsey Co. into production and record label ventures is now underway. White Buffalo Productions and Cyclone Records are being launched in Los Angeles under the direction of Larry Baunach, vice president of music operations of the Halsey Co. and president and majority owner of the new companies. The thrust of White Buffalo Productions and the reason for my being based in Los Angeles is to develop new. contemporary artist/ writer acts, such as rock acts and crossover country acts," advises Baunach, formerly a vice president with ABC /Dot Records. Nashville. The company will offer all -inclusive services, says Baunach. "For acts we choose to work with, we work out label deals for them and provide all types of recording management and production services. We like to produce the artist's session where appropriate and ride herd on sales and promotion of the product once released. We also plan to provide additional publicity and managerial services for the artist on a regular basis." White Buffalo Productions is a "semi -autonomous' division of the Halsey Co. Halsey is a minority stockholder of the new company and any new firms such as Cyclone Records, described as "small scale at the start, financed by ORT." The same corporate structure applies to the new publishing companies, Ghost Dance Music, ASCAP, and Bcar Tracks Music. EM, according to Baunach. Halsey is an officer and on the board of directors of White Buffalo and. along with Dick Howard, senior vice president of the lalsey Co., a key advisor concerning projects the company initiates. Cyclone has signed a major country act, Samnti Smith. as its first singer. Produced and managed by Johnny Morris. Smith has cut her first session for Cyclone. Her first single, "What,A Lie," is being prepared for rush -release. An a &r arm of White Buffalo has been created, thus far utilizing Baunach and Bob Morgan, president of, and producer for. Remme. nc., Los Angeles. Former national a &r director for Epic and MGM, Morgan teamed with Baunach to produce Hoyt Axton. They also produced six sides on Jody Miller for Epic. "We have commitments from at least three other Nashville labels to assign us artists for production in the very near future." claims Baunach. The Baunach /Morgan combo is also producing some new pop /country artists for Cyclone, including Helen Hudson and Mark Paul. Baunach is also producing several rock acts with Roger Harris. an independent British engineer. One of the acts, Cherry Bomb, is "already verbally committed to a major label," says Baunach, while another act. Raven Kane. is finishing an LP. "Obviously, this studio a &r work of mine is one of the big reasons L came to Los Angeles." comments Baunach. " wanted to get more creatively involved in the music business. "The move to L.A. wasn't anu- Nashville," insists Baunach. " required it because there are a lot of areas of operating in L.A. that aren't open to me in Nashville. From a busi- ness sense, Nashville. to a great extent is controlled by a lot of the outstanding a &r men. 've basically come out of sales and promotion." Baunach sees crossover as a magical money word. Noting that the base attic Halsey Co. is country. Baunach adds the label would be anxious to get crossover talents in the style of Jimmy Buffett, Linda Ronstadt, Gene Cotton and Russell Smith of the Amazing Rhythm Acts. "Those types of artists seem to be the force of the future in popularity. record sales and the performance field. Crossover country will be our base. We mean equally those rock artists who from time to time will do a country song or country arrangement and get country airplay." Other music areas will also be tackled. states Baunach. New avenues of musical income will be explored in conjunction with the Halsey Co. agency artist roster. A contract for the soundtrack of a "top level" motion picture is being finalized for spring production. New projects are being developed in the field of commercials. music for television and LPs. Label deals include a Johnny Tillotson "Greatest Hits" premium LP for tv and a Johnnie Lee Wills LP through Flying Fish Records in Chicago. On a "trouble- shooting" basis.

60 60 By ROMAN KOZAK NEW YORK --A Gift Of Song -The Music For UNCEF Corr cert," seen on NBC-TV Jan 10, was the result of months of preparations, an investment of several hundred thousands of dollars, the efforts of 70 musicians, including a number of the world's most popular musical artists. cooperation from the U.N. and the work of a small army of executives, technicians and assistants. An estimated audience of more than 16 mil hon persons saw the pop stars' efforts. But, because of a faulty machine, the show almost didn't go on. The program was taped before a live audience on Tuesday evening (9) tor broadcast the following night. t ran some 20 minutes longer than its scheduled 90- minute broadcast time, but the producers of the show, Marty Pasetta and Ken Ehrlich, expected they would have the time to edit it for broadcast im mediately after taping. Working all night, they hoped to have the ready tape delivered to NBC by 2 p.m. t didn't work out that way. "From midnight to 8 a.m. we had completed maybe five minutes of the show," remembers Ehrlich We used a system of computer editing and something went wrong. There was a lag of four frames per second between the video and audio. Videotape works at 30 frames per second, so it doesn't seem that much, but you quickly go out of synch. Then the ma chines wouldn't link up to do the cuts. "t was horrible. Finally we moved to another studio. with Marty (Pasetta, who was the director, as well as producer of the show) doing one half, and and David (Frost, executive producer with Robert Stigwood) editing the other half. For a while, we really thought we wouldn't make it on time. "We had the first half delivered to NBC by 4 p.m.," he con tinues. "NBC by then already had another show (an old movie) on stand -by to cover itself in case we couldn't make it As it was, NBC didn't finish prescreening the show until 15 minutes before it had to feed it to affiliates. "When the credits finally rolled on the tv screens was the first time was able to draw an easy breath. By then had think, for the last 72 hours." he adds. been awake. The wheels for this benefit extravaganza. which eventually may be seen by as many around the world as witnessed the landing on the moon, were first publicly set in motion last May when Shgwood, Frost, the three Bee Gees; Barry. Maurice and Robin Gibb, and Henry R Labowsse, executive director of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNCEF). held a press con ference at the lobby of the General Assembly building. "We have received a great deal from our fans, and now it is time to give some of it back," Barry Gibb told reporters at the mtime. He said the Bee Gees would donate the royalties of a fu tore song, "which will hopefully be a number one hit, to muncef. and would perform a benefit from the General As. a, sembly itself in January to kick off a Music for UNCEF benefit a^, program to coincide with the U.N. Year Of The Child - The organizers called for other artists to get involved in the ai project and they did. n the following months the list of partic, > pants, the "founder composers," swelled to include Abba, CC Rita Coolidge, John Denver, Earth Wind & Fire, Andy Gibb, El- = ton John. Kris Kristofferson, Olivia NewtonJohn, Rod Stew- CC art and Donna Summer. La LL "Among the firsts associated with the project," stated frost," is that this rs the first time these musical superstars have performed together in concert, the first time a popular music concert (there have been classical concerts) is originating for commercial television at the U N. General Assembly; and it is the first implementation of the Music for UNCEF concept." "f you look at the yearly record sales of the people here. it is equal to the gross national product of some of the member states of the U N," noted one observer on the night of the taping, while watching the various performers crowded in a backstage room awaiting their turn before the tv lights. "Throw a bomb in here and you have knocked out half the music industry." Security for the event was handled by the U.N. itself, with uniformed guards at points around the backstage area, allowing access to the various areas depending on the color code of the bearer's backstage pass. At the rehearsals, the main hall, from where the program originated, was open to all who had any business with the show. The room directly in back of the main stage was slightly more restricted. This was the control center of the operation, with eight desks handling the traffic and needs of the producers and 10 of the top acts in the business. Off to the side of this room was a suite of offices used by the executive producers and executives of the show. Stigwood and Frost shared the office normally reserved for the Secretary General of the U.N. The performers' backstage area was the most restricted. This included the "green room," that served as the lounge area, and the dressing rooms, actually curtain enclosed cu bides located in the U.N.'s "press bar" area, which was closed to the press for the duration. Though a gate crasher (and reporter) or two gol through farther than security would have liked, there were no major problems in this regard during the rehearsals and filming of the special -just long hours. The taping of the show took place Jan 9. The first day when equipment was brought in was on Dec. 27, with the lights sel up two days later. and the audio on Jan. 4. Rehearsals began Jan 6. and rari right into showtrme Most of these days began at 8 a.rn ;inst did not inr',h unlit after midnght.,give nip.r ::.t.i. t i l,,. 1,, i,,, r answr:r, N t ri,xi,1,i'., '. ^J,,.;t.,.', Backstage At `A Gift t's All Very Time- Consuming For Pop Superstars Participating Roccio, talent coordinator for the project backstage during rehearsals. "They do not normally allow liquor to be brought into the U.N., but we told them. 'Hey, some of the guys here do their jobs a little bit differently than you may be used to.' They were cool about it and let us bring it in." During rehearsals and taping, Roccio led a group of about 25 "talent helpers," most college students studying commu nications, who were paid $25 a day to meet the various prince. pals in the show, run errands for them and make sure everyone got to the rehearsals and to tapings on time According to many of the principals. a lot of the ego prob. lems that crop up with such a cast of luminaries were absent from this benefit performance. They attributed it to the na cure of the special, a benefit for the world's children and the venue. How often does one play the U N -with potentially half the world watching? Andy Gibb and producer /director Marty Pasetta discuss point with Pasetta's production assistants. Earth Wind & Fire rehearse their number. "A lot of massive egos were sublimated for the cause," says Ehrlich There was a lot of cooperation among the various artists on the show. When the plane bringing in Henry Fonda (one of Frost's co -hosts with Henry Winkler and Gilda Radner) landed at JFK Airport, not Newark. as was expected, Olivia Newton John's manager gave up his limo and took a cab, so the veteran film actor could ride to the city in comfort. Dressed in a conservative business suit, and carrying the black bound book from which he read selections from the "Diary Of Anne Frank" on the show, Fonda looked like an old preacher ministering backstage to his plumed congregation. "t's surprising how many of the stars are actually fans of each other," noted one backstage observer. But a show like this wouldn't have been complete without some ego problems. A source says that when the poster for the event was created it was decided to list all the performers in alphabetical order, beginning with Abba, then the Bee Gees, Rita Coolidge, etc. However. Abba, as is the norm, was printed ABBA, with all the letters capitalized, whole the naines of the other performers were not Some of them complainedand the posters were changed. Another problem, which may have led to some of the oddest discussions ever held behind closed doors at the U N., in volveel Rod Stewart Originally Stewart had donated and was t wdol"' 1'' pw i,» ni firs old hut, "Maggie May."

The problem was the nature of the song, the way it was to be performed. and its audience. t was, after all, a children's program. And many countries around the world have somewhat different standards of propriety than the U.S. and Western Europe. t would just not do to have the show banned in Bulgaria because of an overly sexual performance.

Rita Coolidge and Donna Summer chat during a break in re hearsals. John Denver meets the U N Chiidrens Choir Finally. a diplomatic solution was reached. Stewart would be able to do his song. but his movements would be restrained. No wiggling. And it was no accident, say the sources. that when the Stewart segment was finally shown, almost all the shots were from the waist up. One problem that turned out to be no problem was Elton John's no.show. Originally billed as one of the performers for the special, the English superstar cancelled prior to the start of rehearsals Sources say that he did not feel he had a song ready that was good enough to donate and. not having performed publicly for more than a year. he was reluctant to step onstage before a worldwide audience "We were overbooked on the show as it was," shrugged Ehrlich, sitting at one of the delegates' tables, while onstage Donna Summer and Rita Coolidge were rehearsing "You Got A Friend," a duet that was seen for only a few seconds by the tv audience. t was a victim, as was "Me And Bobby McGee/ Tonight's The Night" by Rod Stewart and Kris Kristofferson, of the tight time schedule. But time was found for a duet by Oliva Newton -John and Andy Gibb. Copyrn_ineti mab'nai

61 Of Song' U.N. Concert We got the idea for the artistic pairings from the Billboard Awards show last year where George Benson played with Glen Campbell, says Ehlich. Both he and Pasetta are veterans of television. having produced a number of giant musical speciais and programs including "Soundstage" for PBS plus Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra specials. Once Stigwood and Frost, the executive producers, had es- stages, the larger one with giant stand ups. showing children. which was set up for performances by Kris Krstoflerson and Rita Coolidge. Earth Wind & Fire. John Denver and Rod Stew art. Opposite this, in the middle of the audience, was a smaller stage used by a 33 -piece orchestra (conducted by Elliot Lawrence) and the Bee Gees, Andy Gibb, Donna Summer and Olivia Newton -John "We had to remove between 200 and 250 seats to accom modate musicians and performers That leaves about 1,400 seats, But we were lucky here. The U N. is getting ready for major renovations in January. so removing the seats posed no problem," said Pasetta For the dress rehearsals and the actual taping itself, no tickets were sold. They were given away to members of the diplo. matic corps, involved industry and radio personnel and members of the public through local radio station giveaways. On lub,i.u, Atl,,nlo radio audience from backstage during the 61 dress rehearsals describing the scene -'There doesn't seem to be any tension anywhere but a lot of movement Everybody is gelling tbeu cues, and getting ready" But some tension was there "None of us got much sleep last night, we were so wound up," contessej laity Darin, keyboard player for Earth Wind & Fire on the clay ul the taping. And Kristolferson confided. "1 hope duri't blow anything. l've already muffed two songs at rehearsals.' The individual rehearsals began Saturday afternoon with Andy Gibb. They ended past midnight on Monday with Earth Wind & Fire. The next day was the dress rehearsal before a ave audience. That ended al 6 p in At 8 p.m. the taping of the performance itself began. t went through without inter - ruption "This will go off as a live show -no stopping between seg ments. nterruptions of any kind would be a disaster. They would break the tempo, the flow of the program," Pasetta said before the taping. n addition to performing at the oenefit, many of the artists involved helped to promote the show. Some taped segments for the "Today Show" and "Good Morning America." while others made calls to a number of radio stations around the country, explaining what they were doing. n a small curtained enclave off a main corridor, it was not easy. "You want to sound intelligent, but there are so many distractions," complained Donna Summer after one of the calls " could hardly hear him (the DJ), because the music kept coming on. and then somebody started to speak here, and 1 couldn't even hear myself think He asked me what was the Year of the Child, and went ah " Coincidently a representative from the U.S. Committee for UNCEF was nearby to help explain what it is. He also got her to agree to do a spot in German for Music for UNCEF. While the U.N. benefit was the biggest protect for the year of the child (proclaimed by vote of th. U.N. General Assembly in 1976), it is not the only one. Maurice, Barry and Andy Gibb rehearse with Olivia Newton - John. Robert Frost, right. gives stage directions to the Bee Gees.

Ed Greene, audio director for the show, at the controls of one of four mixing boards inside the FilmwaysiHeider recording truck parked outside the General Assembly building. tablished the concept, got the acts to donate their services. and worked out the venue with the U.N.. it was Pasetta and Ehrlich who were in charge of working out all the details that go into putting together a giant tv production Ultimately they were responsible for every performer's hair being in place, and every cable connected to its proper outlet "Marry is in charge of all the technical aspects, while my main function is on the creative side. and dealing with the talent. building up their confidence," says Ehrlich. who spent most of the rehearsals running from one area to another and putting out the fires. Pasetta, the director. spent his time onstage. presiding over the rehearsals, camera blocks. sound checks and the rest. During the taping, Pasetta occupied the director's chair in the television control room two floors below the assembly hall. He kept jumping up, waving his arms as though conducting the tv monitors in front of him, while barking orders. changing shots, brightening lights. dimming them-directing the show. The show used eight cameras within what Ehrlich called, the world's most prestigious tv studio." There were two Kris Knstoflerson and Rod Stewart during a practice moment the black market, tickets were going for several hundred dol. lars each. The sound was handled by Filmways /Heider Recording for television, with the Record Plant sound truck recording the show for a possible LP release. Chief sound engineer was Ed Greene. There were 212 microphones used. lied to four 24- track consoles Fimways /Heider recorded the show in stereo as well as mono, for overseas use as in Japan, where the show was broadcast in stereo An effort to simulcast it in this country with DR Broadcasting fell through. A great deal of effort was put into making the sound sound right Dunng rehearsals for Knstoflerson and Coolidge, tor example, nearly an hour was spent adjusting Kristotferson's monitor, so he could hear the rest of his band. However, the show was criticized in some quarters because on the screen it looked like some of the performances were hp- synched Some were, but -the performers were not singing to their records - but to tapes made earlier at the rehearsals. "f you are going to spend some time there you better take along a book to read, because it's-boring as hell." warned a colleague about the rehearsals. As in making a movie. or recording a song. doing a tv program requires a lot of repeti ti0n and a lot of waiting. t is a matter of practice makes per left Each performer was given about three hours of rehearsal time, in which the music, camera angles, lighting and dialog were worked out Even the brief segments where each performer signed over his song to UNCEF were rehearsed. "t's kind of a madhouse over here, but suddenly, when the show will go on, everything will click into place," John Denver The Bee Gees, for instance, have recorded public service announcements and have signed letters going to 50,000 youth groups urging them to hold "Disco Dances For UNCEF" with proceeds going to the children's group Music for UNCEF has also prepared brochures and press kits explaining how local organizations should go about organizing concerts. student sing -a- longs. caroling and band shows. t reminds students that $5. the "average cover charge at a disco. will supply enough vaccine to immunize 55 children against polio," and --the $8 average admission price for a rock concert can buy exercise books for 200 school children in one of the poorer countries of Asia or Africa." The spirit of charity was present. too. at the U.N. benefit. All the acts not only donated their time to play at the concert but also covered their own expenses in coming to the U.N. That meant 150 airline tickets alone. n addition, the At Your Service messenger service donated its services. "Spectacolor," the electronic billboard on Time Square, ran free announcements of the show. The posters for the concert were printed at cost, and Head East, the limousine service, which had more than 30 timos tied up with the show, gave a -'substantial discount" to the organizers Still, it was an expensive show, with production costs estimated at about $700,000. Stigwood and Frost, the executive producers. guaranteed UNCEF would not lose any money on the production. sources say They add that for a 90- minute show of this scope, a $1 million licensing lee from NBC-TV would not be out of line. Though the special was a charity event tied to a major international nonprofit organization, all the principals are nevertheless reluctant to specify what amount UNCEF will eventually get for the tv show Outside the U S the special is being distributed by Paramount, reportedly at cost, with royalties going to UNCEF. Under the terms of the agreement with Y o artists, the roy attics for the songs they donated will go to UNCEF for the life of the copyright. Chappell Music will be administering the copyrights, again at cost. Depending on the international success of the donated songs, and the number of other artists who donate their own works, the total sum eventually raised for UNCEF may reach hundreds of millions of dollars.

The group has been nominated for a Grammy in the best LP of the year category as part of the "Saturday Night Fever" LP. "Disco nferno" is pan of the "Saturday Night Fever" package. Asked if the group-expects to move away from disco music, Earl Young. leader of the Trammps. says, "No, not entirely." Young points to the seven years in which the band has been together. moving through a variety of musical forms. "We don't really consider ourselves a disco group," he adds. The group makes most of its appearances in discos rather than halls because, the musicians feel that -clubs give you a chance to mingle. We get to talk with the people and find out what they like." The group has appeared in many discos around the New York City area, but its favoritc is the 2001 Odyssey of Brooklyn Young acknowledges that "Disco nferno" only took off after the release of "Saturday Night Fever."...Until then. the group had strong following mostly in New York and Philadelphia. a situation which Young feels is the same now the record is off the charts. Los Angeles has not been particularly strong in support of the group. Young believes. But geography aside. the Trammps know who listens to them: "We've always had 80% to 90`F white followers," the leader claims. Television has been good to the group, Young notes. Recent appearances were made by the group on both "Don Kirshners Rock Concert" and the "Midnight Special" on the same weekend. But both shows featured performances of disco matenal. "We're still searching for a direction for ourselves," is Young's feeling. "Maybe rwe'll do jazz," he continues. That is possible because the Trammps have "no hangups about any kind of music." Whether or not the disco phenomenon lasts. the Trammps will be playing, according to Young, because we were here before disco." Although the group lls s members, there are no women among them because of the feeling that "it doesn't work" with the group on the road. f the group got big enough, women might possibly be added. along with string and been players The engagement of Buddy Allen as manager has expand" in the year he has been with them. According to Young. Allen brought in a choreographer to polish up their movements before live as diences and is grooming them for future touring. When the group's next album, "The Trammps n All Directions" is released in a few weeks. Young feels the diversity of the members will be effectively displayed N. J. Music Hall Yells For Help To Remain Open ' ENGLSHTOWN. -The arc's leading citadel for bluegrass music. the Englrshlown Music Hall. halted its concerts until the owners can locate other tenants to share in keeping the building as an old -time theatre facility. Bluegrass producer Geoff Berne. along with his brother Eric and his mother Rosclee, presented the weekend shows as supper theatre attractions to lure families along with bluegrass fans. The rustic former lodge hall has become a major rallying point for the sound of uptempo banjos. fiddles and mandolins. Berne has been bringing in the top touring groups as well as providing a showcase for rising talent. Though the audience turnout at the 200-seat hall has been solidly consistent since t opened for bluegrass in 1975, the hall itself has been expensive to maintain as a weekend entertainment showroom, says Berne. nflationary rises in costs of all phases of the hall's entertainment operation have made it impossible for the small capacity theatre to yield revenues that keep pace with Just two or three nights of operation, Berne notes.

64 Talent Hagar Links Live LP And Boston Tour SAN FRANCSCO -Sammy Hagar is gaining national attention through the combination of a live two-record LP set and a nine -month tour with Boston. The tour concludes in April. Hagar, a Capitol arusl, won the Bay Area Music Award last year as musician of the year. The award win presented on the strength of his regional success as an uncompromising hard rocker. Hagar claims the live LP set has sold 300,000 copies, double the sales of any of his previous studio albums, with fully one-third coming from Northern California. California sales were helped during the recent holiday season when Hagar took time off from the Boston tour to headline seven West Coast shows, culminating n a New Year's Eve headline date at the soldout Cow Palace. t was the largest headline gig the rocker has yet done. Although he says he has done some recording on a handful of tunes and has "20 more that arc possible" for the next studio album. Hagar explains that the emphasis now is on touring, not recording. "'m the kind of performer who happens live. ts more coherent for people. n the past 've had input from sources who were looking for the hits and this detracted from my identity. "People would hear the records and see me onstage and not put the two together. So now we're working consciously to bring the two together. The live album has been the biggest step in that direction and we'll continue to move that way. " have three main areas of strength. First of all. t rock hard and that's the pnncrpal thing my fans look for.

"And last there are the musical. H,.1%4 k McDONOUGH hr,i,k arranged things.

He'll he my ears and will serve as executive producer, but Just about did the live album myself and 1'11 do the next one also.

Promoters Counteract,} Brown U.'s Risk Factor By ED ARRSON LOS ANC,.LLS Like so group remembered playing there mans other college.. Brown previously and couldn't get its Unit in Providence. R, rs rely- equipment through the door. mg more and more on proles- The change of venue resulted in.sonar promoters to reduce the risk factor. As a result. Brown is enjoying a "more together" concert program, even though it is fortunate to break even on any of its dates. According to Kate Flanagan, chairperson of the Brown concert agency. this year has exceeded other years in terms of the number of acts presented and caliber of those acts. n the fall. Brown presented Little Feat. Rockpile, NRBQ, Talking Heads and Pat Metheny. The NRBQ and Metheny dates were self- produced. Booked for the spring are Johnny Winter and Dire Straits. A Blondie date was scheduled but due to canceltalion of the tour, that date was nullified, and a Wet Willie show was also cancelled. Flanagan is pleased with the schedule considering that many acts have not released spring touring itineraries. Flanagan says that the Providence concert market has gotten better because of promoter interest. "Everyone is fighting over the Providence market because they want control of the New England market.- she says. "Brown is not that interesting unlessa promoter is into it. f not for the promoters. the concert situation would be worse. We'd only book acts that would sellout." Brown, with an enrollment of undergraduates, is also adversely affected by a lack of adequate facilities. There is the 750- seat Alumni Hall and the seat Mann Hockey Rink "f we had a seater rt,could he a totally different i slot's,- says anagan. "Wc se hiss a Pail of shosss because inadequate fa-,dines revenue loss. Yet more important than its lack of facilities is Brown's lack of budget. "We're not getting our share of acts because of money." Flanagan states. She is appropriated S6.000yearly for concerts and this year managed to get an additional 53,000. She is fortunate to break even. The only shows that realized a profit last year were two Elvis Costello dates which made S300 Flanagan has stopped booking jazz artists, primarily because jazz doesn't go over well in the market. Brown took a 52,000 loss on the Pat Metheny show. "The jazz following is not big enough. We have to book what's commercial." Students are also balking at the higher price of tickets. Flanagan says that when she started at Brown four years ago, tickets were $3. That price has increased to $4 -$5 while tickets for Little Feat were $6. For the Johnny Winter show student tickets will be scaled at $8.50. "We depend on people from outside Brown to subsidize our shows. About two -thirds of our audience are from Providence. Those people don't think the prices are that high because they pay the same amount for shows at the Civic Center." says Flanagan. "There is also misunderstanding among students, They want to know why we don't have the Rolling Stones." Flanagan sacs the 13,000 -seat Civic Center presents the big name acts which naturally attract a large student population. Also. other colleges in close proximity to Brown draw away some concert activity. Schools in Providence or close enough include the Univ, of Rhode sland. 1.r r igan says that a 1 osier of Providence College and Rhode Power date scheduled for sland College. Flanagan says Alumni Hall had to be si ached each school has different sized to the hockey rink because the halls which draw away acts.

Thestrike is having definite repercussions in Nashville. though perhaps not quite as seriously as "other markets. since Nashville is not a closed shop town. Local and regional commercials continue to be done here. since these fall under a special "local code" set up by AFTRA for the Nashville market Many of the spots shot here are non -union, with a percentage being done by agencies which are signatories or who honor union rates.

"Agencies are checking into other markets that aren't strong union towns to take up the slack during this period," comments Craig DeiLschmann, owner of the Sound Shop recording studio which does s large volume of national jingle work in Nashville. Deitschmann estimates the strike is costing his studio about a % decrease in normal commercial business. Noting that his production facility is not a union signatory. Mikc Duncan of Opryland Productions says he sees a "slowdown in commercial work" but local and regionals arc still going on normally. Patsy Bruce. franchised union agent and owner of The Bruce Agency with talents such as Tom T Hall, Ed Bruce and Jim Mundy, says that many national spots shot in Nashville arc filmed on location rather than in studios and production facilities.

"There's a lot more product going to the audiophile market super cassettes, digital. direct -to- disk," Larry Zide, host of WQXR's "Adventures n Sound" relates.

Mitchell says much of the sonic advantage gets sacrificed in transmission. "A great deal is lost: we've been trying to upgrade the sound," the engineer explains. Most station's cartridges and transmitter limiters,are what Mitchell calls the "critical points" in the quality chain. At WCLV -FM, Cleveland, particular attention is being paid to audiophile recordings which feature the Cleveland Orchestra. "We play those records quite often because they're the home town boys." says program director Roben Conrad. "We get a lot of phone calls. reaction and face -to-face comments," the broadcaster says.

F s John TraSolli.N.,k..i. hl..,,n,) Jimmy and h',iv Mc Nichol "These are s,ises where feature stories and favorable reviews keep an artist afloat without major air- play." adds Gary Kenton. another Warner Bros. publicist. "And of course it sells records. t provides an edge and can make a difference as to whether the artist sells or records. We've just seen too many examples lately of publicity breaking an artist before radio does. ' Joan Bullard, vice president of artists' relations and publicity at MCA Records. talks about the heavy changes" in the publicity funcuon that have been brought into the marketing fold. Bullard works closely with a marketing committee that involves advertising. promotion. sales and artists' reljtions staffers as well as her own publicity staff. Again. the prevailing strategy is to zero in on markets where the artist has already proved successful, or where field forces indicate there is an early reaction. Bullard is particularly concerned with providing public relations support to touring artists. This can range from in -store appearances. interviews with press, radio and television sources as well as the traditional press party. Bullard's staff is dis ',led nto speclalts areas. One publicist handles syndicated radio and elevisfon bookings- Another concentrates on the college market. while another keeps track of acts on the road. Bullard is an example of the leading role taken by women in the publicity field Other women in top positions include Susan Blond, director of publicity for Epic /Portrait /Associated Labels. and Hope Antman, director of publicity for Columbia Records. Male publicity executives cite the "%ensnoits" a good publicist must have in dealing with artists as a factor that makes women take to the p r. function. CBS' Altshuler notes that women who succeed in publicity have the ability to he "tactful and tough at the same time " n fact. the publicity department in the late 1960, was the first major department at mans labels which gave women their first executive opportunity. Many of the women working in p.r. today started out as secretaries to the head of p.r. at one company, and when all hell began to break loose as music was really discovered by the media. they moved over i.' companies looking for p.r. thus ullmg lls pipeline in y\ and New York with female press agents And even heads ofpr There was one catch many did not have any ünnal training in the field. They had not worked on any newspaper or magazine before. They had not graduated from any s, lege with a degree n public relainn. or journalism Many labels lelt this was not needed since the p.r. person simply had to fulfill writers' requests for bios and review records. So with some exceptions. the field consists of people who very often were given on-the-job training. so to speak, because the needs of the industry required people to send out bios to the expanding list of rock and underground press which was giving rock musk. its greatest exposure in the late '60s and early '70s. Today. the pattern seems to be for p.r. people to hop scotch from label to label. some picking up very impressive titles. n other industries, public relations officials are generally hired away from major publications or at least have a degree in p.r. or journalism from some.school of communications. The record industry has not been concerned with degrees or heavy media backgrounds. So that many of the new people coming into the fold do not have, or have not had extensive backgrounds in writing or public relations. RCA's Heiman. CBS' Altshuler and Warner Communications' Bob Rolontz are the three most experienced public relations executives in the U.S. industry. They have remained at the same company for many years and are totally experienced in working with all levels of the media. The print media. for example, is credited by several of the publicists interviewed with helping enlarge the public relations function and making it an important part of the marketing strategy. "When the industry really began to explode. the press suddenly be- came aware of it and they were the on who really turned it around." says Dennis Fine, Arista 's director f publicity. One unexpected result of this is that the media has begun taking an interest in the record business itself, not just churning out features on rock stars' life styles. As Stu Ginsburg, Atlantic Records' director of publicity sees it. today's publicist serves three masters: the artist, the label's executives and the label itself Ginsburg points to recent occasions where key executives were featured in interviews with both the business press and Rolling Slone. Atlantic artists were also featured in a fashion magazine's layout on the disco craze, another example of how the opportunities for media exposure are expanding. "You have to work the whole gamut these days," says Bob Rolontz, the 14 -year record company veteran who now heads the corporate public relations' slot at Warner Communications, a job that requires him to develop stories throughout the company. He also oversees the public relations function for the WEA distributing arm. "t's more than just taking acts over to the trades these days," he adds "We're concerned with conveying the image of the company to distributors, DJs. music directors, program directors and to the public and the artists themselves." Rolontz points to requests for stories he has had in the past year from the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Forbes and Fortune. "The press has to be interested in a business this large." CBS' Altshuler notes. calling label publicity "a crucial function. Warner Bros.' Merits says that the top brass at his label are concerned with "making the company look attractive to artists." "For the trades and the business press, label publicity is very important." agrees Aristá s Fine. "Not for the public. but for the artists and their managers. These people want to know how a company is doing in business, how it advertises its acts, how it handles sales. distribution and merchandising. And it's good for an artist to know these things." Rolontz points to other recent stories concerning the successful careers of two producers associated with the WEA family, WEA's black marketing thrust, and an interview with one of the label's sales executives explaining why certain product was being raised to "t's important for executives w talk to the press," Rolontz adds. "At first they were reluctant to do so. but many are beginning to understand the value of it." ncreased media awareness of the recording industry has made the publicist's lob more vital, of course, but some publicists, mostly in middle management positions. are quick to point out that the average publicist's salary hasn't kept pace with the job's nest status. "t's an uphill light." says one toiler. "But it's turning around. More people are staying in p.r. rather than using it as a stepping stone and that has helped. But the big bucks are still in a &r and sales." Asian Meet Unfurls Jolly Roger (',nanued from page national. Ertegun then chairs the antipiracy panel of the liest business day.

HOLMES MAPS DRVE ristòeiopment Tagged As TK's Top Priority For Europe By ADAM WHTE CANNES -The opening of a European office by- TK Records (Billboard. Jan. 20, 1979) signals the latest foreign priorities of the Miami - based company which is distributed outside the U.S. by CBS Records nternational. As articulated at MDEM '79 by TK's newly appointed European director, Phil Holmes -here to liaise with staffers from CR companies throughout the Continent -these priorities include the need to promote and develop specific artists. n the past he says. it has been "The TK sound" which has been exploited and sold in Europe "now's the time to work on individual artists." Among them he numbers K.C. and the Sunshine Band (TK's top - selling international act). Betty Wright and Peter Brown. Holmes is swift to praise CBS for its work since the global distribution deal was signed with TK in November "They're doing a very good job," he emphasizes, specifically citing chart action in Holland with Foxy, Jimmy "Bo" Horne and K.C. and the Sunshine Band in Britain. with Peter Brown, T- Conneclion, Celi Bee and K.C.: and in Spain. also with Bee. Holmes should know. Prior to his TK appointment, he was custom labels manager at CBS Records U.K. Now he'll be dividing his time between London, wheretk opens new offices in the city's West End, and the Continent, coordinating the activities between the various CBS units there. The new emphasis on promoting TK artists, rather than simply working from record to record, involves in- person visits and tours by those acts. Holmes acknowledges.

Among the markets specifically targeted are Germans and France. which. he opines, are becoming more discooriented. New albums due from Miami in the near future showcase Peter Brown, Ralph MacDonald. Betty Wright and John Tropea. With this and other product from TK. Holmes will be alerting CR1 European companies to U.S. sales and disco activity. so that they can plan their release and promotion efforts accordingly. This is one way in which he hopes to preempt the effect of imports which can often erode the initial sales of new product prior to official release in a market. The TK executive accepts that however swiftly new releases are made available abroad, certain retailers have standing orders with Amencan exporters for the latest soul and disco items. But he's hopeful that the problem can be partially eliminated, at least and declares that there's a fine working relationship between TK and CR1 over the shipment of parts and matenal.

75 nternational SEMNARS & GALAS PROVDE BRGHT SPOTS 75 Rain -Soaked MDEM Told Of Mountin Piracy Peril By NUKE RENNESSEN & PETER JONES CANNES -As if it weren't enough that foul Riviera weather threatened to turn the 13th MDEM here into the world's first under-water music fair, the 6,000 participants had the gloomy experience asi week of having their annual pilgrimage further drenched in cold water by grim and devastating news about the colossal extent of piracy. The edifice of stubborn and unrelenting optimism which the international industry collectively erects when it gathers to rattle its drums, blow its trumpets and beat its T- shirred chests. seemed to be developing some ugly cracks after Gerry Oord, the new international antipiracy coordinator for the nternational Federation of Producers of Phonograms and Videograms, warned that the worldwide trade in counterfeit, bootleg and pirated product was now running in excess of S billion annually. Oord spent the week at energetically whipping up industry support for the Federation's antipiracy campaign. urging industry, leaders to get their heads out of the sand and to dip nto their wallets to fund the campaign. "f we don't fight this evil." he said, "there won't be a record industry five years from now." Also voiced was mounting industry concern over the spectacularly mushrooming sales of blank tape. a factor considered by a growing number of industry leaders as posing an even more massive threat to the music industry than piracy. But. as usual in this ever resilient industry. there were little areas of silver lining showing through the stormclouds. MDEM, which last year staged the European premiere of the phenomenally successful "Saturday Night Fever" this year offered the first European showing of "The Wiz" which, despite a mixed reception. is hoped toscore an important mark internationally for MCA. Also premiered was France's first major attempt to crack the rock movie market -the musical "New Generation." t was a good MDEM for country music. A much -acclaimed gala by Roy Clark. the Oak Ridge Boys and Don Williams was followed by news from promoter Jim Halsey that he would be offering the package to the Republic of China and that the Montreux nternational Jazz Festival in July would be featuring a night of country music for the first time. t was a good MDEM, too, for the media in terms of record company hospitality, with Motown launching the new Stevie Wonder album, and CBS. Polydor nternational and WEA celebrating a past year of great prosperity. t was a MDEM for much speculation about the future of ABC Records, and a MDEM of constructive and thought- provoking meetings by the nternational Federation of Popular Music Publishers, assembling for the first tinte. and of international music industry lawyers. And it was MDEM in which the considerable improvement of recent years seen in the quality of the gala presentations was impressivcly maintained. Performances by A &M's star of the year Chuck Mangione made a big hit, the Pointer Sisters scored a tremendous impact for WEA in two sellout performances. Nana Mouskouri topped the bill for the $150. a -head French Variety Club gala and jazz got more than honorable representation with a gala by Carmen McRae. Joe Williams, Thad Jones and the Claude Bolling Orchestra. But the prevailing mood, it has to be said. was one of considerably subdued hysteria. Cannes, even when waterlogged, is not the place for morbid preoccupations about the spreading cancer of piracy. But the partic, pants went back to their home desks this week with a keener appreciation of. and concern for, the fight ahead. There have been warning bells before. but at Cannes last week they had a particularly persuasive ring of truth.

He reports CBS sales up 504 in the past 12 months. with the company enjoying an estimated 124 total market share. With CBS not involved in budget product here, its share of the full -pose market could be as high as 164, McCready says. Previously under the wing of Phonogram, it had only six people on staff when t'bs went independent. "Of the S people now working for us, 13 are selling something. Were a very marketing oriented company," says McCready. The first major success for CBS's media coordination came with the breaking of Meat Loafs album, "Bat Out of Hell" on Epic. First came a radio blitz. with ads loosely based on the 50s hit "Purple People Eater." Meat Loaf spots for television followed, and then newspaper contests in Auckland and Christchurch. with a S700 motorbike as a prize in both cities. "Bat Out of Hell" has now sold triple platinum in New Zealand la sale of 15,000 is single platinum), says McCready. and "it keeps on selling." Auckland's Campaign Agency prepared the Meal Loaf radio ads. GFFORD and also put together a 30- minute video. which was heavily used in the promotion of Jeff Waynes "War of the Worlds" on CBS. Aided by a promotional visit by Wayne the double album has now also gone platinum. Other major selling acts have been Billy Joel. with double platinum for The Stranger" and "52nd Street:" Boo Scaggs, platinum with "Silk Degrees" and "Down Two Then Left:" and Neil Diamond. double platinum with "Glad You're Here With Me Tonight." Two local acts have been signed by CBS -singer-songwriter Sharon O'Neill, a performer in the Linda Ronstadt mold, and rock group Citizen Band. Says McCready: This year we may sign two or three more acts. but it's not our aim to have a huge local roster. Our policy is to work hard on the acts we sign and make it happen. We wouldn't sign any act we didn't think has international potential. Without that potential it's not worth having them.'

77 nternational 77 POLYDOR RDES TREND Cantonese: Language Of Hits n Hong Kong MC AGENDA SHAPES Piracy s No. 1 Topic At 2 Billboard Meets 1 ONG KONG - Polydor (H K ) Ltd. has stepped up plans to record almost its entire local talent roster in Cantonese to keep pace with local trends. t seems the logical step to take. says Norman Cheng, managing director. "Whereas in the past Cantonese albums outsold English albums by 2 to, in the last 16 months this ratio has stretched to as much as 4 to Cheng attributes this dramatic change in the attitude of the local consumer to the emergence of Canto-rock. the present popularity enjoyed by Cantonese singers, Sant Hui. Roman Tam, Paula Tsui. and Adam Cheng, as well as to the disco ' boom. "At the moment we are being flooded by international disco recordings. n Hong Kong. we don't have any disco acts worth recording," says Cheng. "A few years ago we might have thought about releasing cover versions of these disco hits. But there is no point in doing that today. Local record buyers tastes have matured so greatly that they only want the real McCoy. How else could we have sold over units of 'Saturday Night Fever in Hong Kong alone?" Cheng sees Polydor maintaining its stress on Cantonese recordings for at least two years.' Already in production is the debut solo album by Alan Tam. lead singer with the Wynners, one of the most popular groups in Southeast Asia. who have made a name for themselves with their English recordings. Tam's album. according to Cheng, will be Canto -disco in flavor. and will also include a Cantonese version of Billy Joel's "My Life.' plus originals by such well-known Cantonese writers as James Wong and Joseph Koo. Cheng reports that most of Poly - dor's artists have been open minded about making this transition from recording in English to recording in Cantonese. They realize that if they wish to sell records in Hong Kong. this is the only way to go." K.K. Wong, creative director of EM (HK) Ltd.. shares Cheng's decision to concentrate on Cantonese material. According w Wong. the first Cantonese album by EM artist r4, Lam, released only two months ago, has already gone gold. "So far.

While he believes Polydor has made a sensible marketing move, Paul Ewing, head of WEA's operation in Southeast Asia. has plans for his company to release English recordings as well as Cantonese. " think we have the talent to record English material," says Ewing, and cites WEA's recent signing, the Ramband, as an example. To underline his faith in the band, Ewing plans to have its debut album produced by British session musician and record producer. John Porter. Porter, recently in Singapore to mix the debut WEA album by Heritage. has co- produced or played on albums by such well -established artists as Bryan Ferry, Roxy Music and the Sparks. "The only problem with recording in Cantonese is that the product will only sell in Hong Kong. Sam Hui is the only exception to that rule," says Ewing. "Also, there are not enough good Cantonese songwriters around.

The M1>1- M meeting of industry leaders who form the MC 1979 advisors panel was called by Billboard at the Majestic Hotel here to prepare the agenda for the Monte Carlo meeting. t was unanimously agreed that the number one topic fordiscussiren at MC had to be piracy. Steve Gottlieb, chairman and chief executive of Chappell Music Ltd., U.K., said that research into the possibility of incorporating a signal into recordings to frustrate illegal duplication had proved abortive, and it was generally agreed that measures of this kind are impractical. Siegfried Loch, head of WEA Germany, suggested to the meeting that the piracy discussion at MC 9 should be slanted towards the problem of impressing on politicians and law enforcement agencies the importance of taking firm action against record piracy everywhere. A suggestion that the problem of home duplication on blank tape was probably even more damaging to the industry than that of piracy was put forward by Michael Stewart, president of the nterworld Music Group. Stig Anderson, head of Sweden Music Stockholm, supported this view, noting that in Sweden, a country of just 8 million people. blank tape sales were running at a MAPS 3- PRONGED DRVE RKM Eyes New ntl Alliances BRUSSELS -Following the company's most successful year, RKM managing director Roland Kluger this week announced plans to expand RKM's record, publishing and management activity on a world- wide basis. More territories are releasing RKM product under its own logo and this year will see the company increasingly orienting its production toward records with international potential. Says Kluger: "We have let a number a local artists go in order to concentrate on repertoire which has sales potential around the world." At MDEM last week Kluger was negotiating licensing deals for RKM product with companies in countries where the label has, as yet, no regular outlet, primarily South American territories and Japan. He also chaired a meeting of European, Australian and American licensees in order to introduce new product. notably by guitarist Guy Lukowski. "The signal event of last year as far as RKM is concerned was the 'Plastic explosion,- Kluger says. "Plastic Bertrand, a Belgian artist. made a big impact around the world and unit sales have topped 5 million. 'Ca Plane Pour Moi' has broken in Australia, and Bertrand was named artist of the year by Europe Ni.. during the station's MDEM gala " Since September, RKM has been consolidating its licensing situation and has concluded deals with WEA for Holland: Vogue for France, Belgium and Switzerland; and Hansa for Germany and Austria. The label is handled by Durium in taly and by EM in Spain, while in Scandinavia the company has two acts with CBS and two with Polar Records. "Our aim is to have first option dealewith our own logo in all world territories except the U.K. and the U.S.A. We want the freedom in these markets to deal with various companies." Plastic Bertrand is released in the U.S. by Sire, which will be issuing a French /English version of "Super Cool" in February. Sire is also picking up another Belgian group.

RKM is the Benelux arm of the United European Publishers group. Last year our publishing turnover increased by 201." n the management area Kluger is planning increased activity as part of a long -term diversification process set to get under way in earnest this year and next RKM already handles the management of Plastic Bertrand and will be contracting more artists over the next two years.

Evans moves up from head of radio/iv public relations. ajob he took over 18 months ago, following a spell as head of programming for Radio Luxembourg.

79 Canada SYNDCATORS TARGETED Mechanical Rights Agency Steps Up License Activity TORONTO -A growing list of companies here arc getting a subtle jolt as the relatively new Canadian mechanical rights collective flexes its muscle and points the Copyright Act at syndication houses, recording artists and even major labels. The Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency (CMRRA took over the task of collecting mechanical royalties and issuing reproduction licenses m Previously the job had been handled by the Harry Fox Agency out of New York, but it proved to be more of a headache than a bonus for them, notes the Canadian collectives general manager. Cyril Deveroux. The former head of Chappell Music in Toronto. Deveroux says the machinery' and personnel training necwary to issue licenses for and r MARLEY S TELLER By DAVD FARR' 1 make payments lo the 8,111/0 publtshingclients at represents is all in place, and that the assr vi.tlorn 1, now,has ing down offenders. The most recent agreement mode is with Micmac Audio Creators of Montreal, which produces Air Canada's in -flight music programs Several trips have been made to Montreal an the past year, the general manager nforms. to "educate" local record labels about poaching English pop tunes for translation into French without approval, and without paying royalties owed on the records. Now Deveroux and the CMRRA's lawyers are negotiating with syndication houses for an agreement whereby mechanicals are paid on the true number of tape duplications made. "A lot of these corn- sland Banks On Gold TORONTO -sland Canada's national coordinator. Cathy Hahn, hopes to fly to Jamaica late February to present Bob Marley with a certified gold album of "Kayo," a significant event in that it would be a first for Marley anywhere in the world and the first gold album sland has achieved in North America. Hahn says she is awaiting for an audit to apply for the certification. but opines that she is confident that the Marley presentation is on. She intends to make big news out of the event. Backing the success of the album is Hahn's own personal enthusiasm for the reggae form and a growing acceptance of Trenchtown rock in Canada. With Marley's latest -'Babylon By Bus" release enjoying rotation at AOR FM outlets across the country. the national coordinator notes that discotheques are programming more reggae disks than ever before. As an example. she offers Third World's "Journey To Addis," which. she notes. is not a pure disco record by any means" Distribution and marketing of sland product in Canada is handled by RCA and remains this way for another year. The WEA pact in the U.S. has enhanced sland'. image in Canada. however, Hahn says. ncreased airplay is one immediate benefit she sees front the new U.S. arrangement. a trend that is developing from an increased presence on the album charts in the southern market. sland Canada is very close to achieving gold sales on Marley's last studio effort as well, she claims. The label is currently involved in a "Babylon By Bus" radio /print promo - lion involving the Toronto Sun daily and CFNY -FM, which lands a lucky contest winner in Jamaica for one week. Scheduled releases for sland in the next two months include albums by Zap -Pow. a new Jamaican signing; Hi- Tension. a British funk band: Roundtree, a U.S. rhythm and blues band; and nner Circle, a debut album on the label after two reggae outings on Capitol's logo. Artist appearances by John Mar - tyn and Ultravox are both planned at a Toronto club. The Edge, in March.

"Reproduction ri li i. don't work that way," he adds. Two alleged oltenders that the,agency is currently negotiating with and the producers of Big Counts,, and the Pringle Program, synd is,i i, weekly shows broadcast nation.ll, Both sides of the discussion table are trying to avoid a court confrontation, but syndication people suggest that a ruling in favor of CMRRA would severely jeopardize profitability. Besides which, they argue, they are providing national exposure and promotion which just can't be bought. Beyond these areas, the collective has granted licenses to a number of television variety shows which use prerecorded music as part of their entertainment package and is now chasing down nn -store taped music suppliers for similar purposes. Perhaps the biggest area of work outside of payments is the auditing of statistical records of the record manufacturers. Herein lies the huge sums of monies to be paid out to the recording artists and publishers for records sold or given away for promotion, the mechanical rights. The auditors were given basic training by personnel from the Harry Fox Agency who flew in from New York to supervise in the year. Formed by the Canadian Music Publishers Assn os nh O founding members guaranteeing the finances in the first year, the shares of the agency are held in trust by the Canada Permanent Trust bank, which is responsible for sending out the nominations for the board of directors. Mechanical licenses to the record companies are produced by an MA Basic 4 computer, which also calculates the commission and exchange when printing out the checks payable to U.S. music publishers. The computer is programmed to convert to Canadian funds for addresses in this country. Deveroux claims to have 85% of the U.S. music publishing oper arions represented by the agency and figures an average of 20 new publishers sign for representation every week. Companies working outside the Jurisdiction of CMRRA include the CBS owned April /Blackwood Music publishing company and Morning Music, owned by Boot Records of Toronto.

TOP COUNTRY - Crystal Gayle holds her award as favorite female country vocalist. Grammy Party By Chi NARAS CHCAGO -NARAS will screen the Grammy Awards network telecast here at a gala public function to which dozens of local recording acts are invited. The Park West nightclub. with its giant theatre tv projection system, has been rented for the Feb. 15 airing to be followed by disco dancing. Admission is $5. "t's going to be a Hollywood -type premiere with searchlights out front." explains one of the NARAS show producers. "The performing people won't be there in the capacity of performers, but as partygoers." For the Record LOS ANGELLS- A &M's promo - lion, advertising. merchandising and other creative departments will not be affected by the label's new distribution deal with RCA (Billboard.

Changes and layoffs are expected in the sales and accounting departments, where it is reported that 76 employes have been terminated. ing director, because the glue that meshed the paper and the poly would sometimes seep through and mar the record. Low density poly sleeves would stretch and sag. according to Thompson. and would not be strong enough to hold a record. Yet high density sleeves require high density resins, which are not made by U.S. chemical giants like Exxon. Arco - dupont and Union Carbide. They arc, however, available in Europe and Canada, which explains the early jump on the competition made by Toronto -based Custom Converters. The main reason for the interest in poly sleeves is summed up by one of the firm's owners, Don Stagmire. "Paper prices are going up all the time. Polyethylene prices wib be comparable quickly." Stagmire also claims that poly sleeves are lighter and easier to store, with poly sleeves weighing only 25 pounds (compared with 50 for paper) and measuring just six inches when stacked (versus two feet for paper). n addition to these shipping and storing economic factors, Stagmire says plastic sleeves provide better protection for the record. since fibers can't rub off on the vinyl. John Gearhart. who is promoting Custom Converters in the U.S., notes that the equipment used to manufacture paper sleeves is not at this time adaptable to poly. Stuart Andrews Jr., president of Andrews Nunnery Envelope and Paper Corp. in New York, candidly states that his firm began subcontracting this business "to protect our right flank" when Custom Converters started to make noise. WB begin looking into poly sleeves. according to executive vice president Stan Cornvo. because (Continued on page 9f/ idi

91 FANFARE -The Philip.tones Brass Ensemble, Argo ZR(.$70 (London). Produced by Chris lazell. After listening to a full album of music performed on brass instruments one sometimes is ready for a little more sound variety. Enough of one thing is enough, it seems. But listener fatigue never sets in with recordings by the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. most of which appear on the Argo label. This ensemble of pop British trumpeters, homists, trombonists. tuba players and percussionists brings more color and variety to its work than any comparable ensemble. At that. there are few groups anywhere that compare to this large and multi -faceted concertizing outfit. When the Jones Ensemble steps before the listener. there's not even a thought of missing strings and woodwinds. Their work is that imaginative. This new album of short pieces by pre -baroque and contemporary composers can be savored in its en- MC '79 June Loews, Monte -Carlo General News Closeup tirety or sampled in short doses. The selections offer a great prospect to radio programmers with dteir brief but highly animated form. Side one looks at processional and fanfare pieces by French, British and American composers, including Elgar Howarth, a trumpeter who is responsible for many of the group's arrangements. Contemporary music freaks and film music buffs can sink their teeth into these exciting. theatrical. multi -hued. sometimes dissonant banners erected in sound. The group turns back the clock on side two. which begins with a military fanfare celebrating the triumph of the British over the French in 1415, followed by The Earl Of Salisbury's Pavane," a slow. stately. Elizabethan dance by William Byrd. Howarth has transcribed the traditional "Greensleeves. handing the ageless tune to a choir of soft- spoken trumpets. There follows a suite of dances from the French Renaissance. These contrasting pieces are filled with exuberance and uplift, highlighted by striking antiphonal effects and rhythmic drive in the percussion. The annotation credits two dozen musicians. and it seems we are hearing the full contingent on most cuts. The reproduction is robust and radiant with plenty of hall reverberation that's used to enhance the performances. The group contributes a lot of rhythmic snap to its playing and some of the dances on side two actually begin to swing a little. "Fanfare From The Cenci," one of the modem pieces, has a menacing mood and sudden shifts of tern - per that bring to mind the main title cue of some '50s science fiction flick. William Walton's "Spitfire Prelude And Fugue" is part of the scoring of the famous British war film, "The First Of The Fugue." The work. march -like and typically British, originally was written for full symphony but here has been translated. Other composers include Aaron Copland, Michael Tippett. Andre Jolivet and Havergal Brian. tr4)pop Charts generate consumer excitement in retail outlets, especially with the influx and impact of disco and R &B product in the pop charts.

The disk is appearing simultancously with this one. Another recent album is "Philip Jones Brass Ensemble n Switzerland." including unusual arrangements of popular Swiss melodies. on the HNH label. ALAN PENCHANSKY Test Poly Sleeves C'outrnuc /ram nge.5/ "qualitatively they're much more acceptable." His only initial concern "four -color doesn't reproduce too well." Capitol's Thompson confirms that it is more time consuming to open the poly sleeve and load a disk into rt than with more rigid paper sleeves. but adds that the poly sleeves slip into the record jackets more effortlessly. Capitol. which manufactures Warner Bros. product. is running the tests with the three suppliers, though its own records (excluding Angel product and a recent Kate Bush LP on EM -America) are not sleeved rn poly. Floyd Gluten. executive vice president of marketing for Shorewood Packaging Corp., one of the world's largest manufacturers of record jackets. is carefully watching the poly boom. "We have an intensive investigation." he says. nto the manufacture of sleeves made of vinyl. polyethylene and other plastic material." Glenn Ross, creative services director at RSO. and Ellen Neitlich, production director, point out that, bought in bulk. the poly sleeves would cost "the same or a little less" than paper sleeves. Alan Bank, manager of testing and material specification for CBS says that its only involvement todate has been pressing the sleeves for RSO. "But we're looking into it and developing costs for both 2 -inch and seven -inch poly sleeves." he says. Milwaukee Continued from page /5 tors wholesale and retail record store, laments.
