COVER STORY 


The Iceman Cometh 

IT’S BEEN FIVE YEARS since Priority Records rapper Ice 
Cube came on the scene with his controversial tvme "Boyz N The 
Hood/' which later became a hit movie in which he co-starred. 
Since then his career has exploded with smash Ips and movie 
roles (including the new film, Trespass — see page 11). 

Last year's Death Certificate album sold 1.7 million units, and his 
latest. The Predator, has already exceeded the million mark in just 
two weeks of release. This week the Ip grabs the top spot on Cash 
Box’s Top 2CX) Pop Albums Chart. The initial single from the 
album, "Wicked," is soaring to #48 on the Pop Singles Chart, and 
#5 on the Rap Singles Chart. 

What's the song about? "I just wanted to get loose," Ice Cube 
explains. "I entertain, too. I make records and I can bust. The 
song describes the way I feel when I'm doing a show and the 
crowd's going crazy: I feel wicked." 

The Predator differs from Death Certificate in that last year's Ip was 
more of a concept album. "I didn't want to go with a format on 
this record. I just wanted to do the tracks that I wanted to do. I'm 
not into doing records that's already been done or trying to 
recreate any old records." 

Concerning his surly image. Ice Cube says, "I have people scared 
to come up and say 'What's up' to me cause they think that I'm 
the meanest m.f. ever. I'm not mad 24 hours a day, but I'm 
thmking 24 hours a day."

ROCK THE VOTE: Ballots to determine the 35th Annual Grammy 
Awards nominations, along with the official lists of entries, have been 
mailed by NARAS to over 6,000 active (voting) members. Due date 
for their return is December 14. 

Nominations will be announced at national press conferences on 
January 7 in L.A. and New York. Final ballots to determine the Grammy 
recipients will be mailed to all voting members on January 15. The winners 
will be announced during the annual Grammy Awards show, to be broad- 
cast by CBS-TV from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Wednesday, 
February 24, 1993. 

PRECISION ACQUISITION: Rounder Records and Rykodisc 
have completed their acquisition of West Coast independent dis- 
tributor Precision Sound. The deal brings Precision into the 
Ryko/Rounder family of distribution companies, joining Rounder 
Dist. and East Side Digital. 

The individual identities and regional nature of the three oiganizations 
will be maintained, jointly owned by the two labels under an ownership 
umbrella called The Rep Company, Inc (or "REP," an acronym for 
Rounder/East Side/Precision). 

Besides Rykodisc and Rounder, Precision currently represents American 
Gramaphone, Miramar, Higher Octave, and over 50 other labels on the West 
Coast. 

Precision's former owners, Frank and Barbara Klammer, will stay on as 
consultants during a transition period. Russ Martin, formerly vp of sales, 
will assume the role of managing director and oversee all aspects of the 
West Coast operation. 

CHILD’S PLAY: Steve Bedell and Stan Corwin have announced the 
formation of CB Entertainment, a new children's entertainment and 
management company. CB Entertainment will create, produce and 
market educational and entertainment properties for children of all 
ages in music, books, video, interactive and live media. 

Bedell is a music pubUsher, film music supervisor, and film and music 
producer. He is on the Board of Governors and a national trustee of N ARAS. 
Corwin is an author, producer, and publisher creating and producing 
literary properties for all media. He is also a guest lecturer at USC. 

CB Entertainment is based in L.A. 

THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR: Atlantic Records recording 
group Skid Row has announced their plans to perform on December 
12 at Hammerjack's in Baltimore, MD in memory of devoted fan, Mike 
Naprstek. Naprstek, who became a very close friend of the band many 
years ago, was recently killed in a car accident. 

The proceeds from the concert will go directly to the Juvenile Diabetes 
Foundation of Washington, DC. 'The request came from the victim's family, 
since he suffered from the disease. 

Pop Chart Becomes 
Wayne’s World 

SUPERSTAR ENTERTAINER WAYNE NEWTON has captured 
the top spot on Cash Box's Top 100 Pop Singles Chart with his tribute 
to Elvis titled 'The Let- 
ter." The tune, which 
Newton co-wrote and 
co-produced, hit the #1 
position on the Top 100 
Country Singles Chart 
several months ago and 
has enjoyed a steady 
climb up the pop charts 
for nearly half a year 
before hitting the sum- 
mit. 

The Curb album. 

Moods & Moments, from 
which the single is culled, 
is also doing well, grab- 
bing #32 on TOth the Top 
2(X) Pop Album Chart and 
Top 75 Country Album 
Chart. 

'The Letter" has cap- 
tured not only radio and 
retail's hearts, but has be- 
come a staple in Newton's 
spectacular live show as 
well. 


Chess Game 

Pieces Still Moved In 
Dispute Over Chess 
Catalog 

By M.R. Martinez 

ALTHOUGH MCA RECORDS WON a recent court battle and a 
declaration that no other company has or ever had the rights to 
distribute product from the Chess labels catalog, there are still some 
maneuvers afoot by other companies to claim that they indeed have 
the rights to distribute product from the legendary Chess vaults. 
Charley Records recently released a statement saying that it was not 
party to the declaratory judgement MCA obtained in Los Angeles 
Superior Court Sept. 11. MCA, however, has retained legal counsel in 
several foreign territories in which Charley claims to have the right to 
distribute the Chess product and has filed a libel suit against MCA in 
England. 

In a major press conference last month, MCA announced the court 
decision that the company says gave them the sole right to the 25,000 
titles of the Chess catalog, including the Chess, Checker, Argo, Cadet, 
Cadet Concept and Aristocrat record labels, which the company ob- 
tained in 1985. MCA claims that several bootleg copies of the product 
have been sold through licensing arrangements granted by Marshall 
Sehorn and his Red Dog Express, Inc. 

In its statement, Charley said that London-based Charley Holdings, 
Inc. in 1987 obtained a worldwide licensing agreement from Sehom's 
Red Dog Express and began to sell the product worldwide, including 
imports to the United States. Charley further said that when MCA filed 
suit against Sehorn, et. al, in June, 1990, the London-based company 
was not included in the action. In fact, the Charley statement said, MCA 
originally was not seeking to void all Sehorn's rights to the Chess 
masters, but instead sought to enforce an agreement that MCA and 
Sehorn had reached over the Chess masters which would have ratified 
Sehorn's licenses to third parties. The statement said that MCA changed 
its tactics in an amended suit in April, 1991 when it sought the declara- 
tion that Sehorn /Red Dog had no rights in or to the Chess catalog. 

MCA said that Charley stopped importing Chess product into the 
American marketplace after defaulting on a federal suit brought against 
them. During a much ballyhooed press conference held in early 
November, Larry Kenswil, MCA senior vp of business and legal affairs, 
said that the label expects to obtain an injunction and a multi-million 
dollar judgment against Charley, much the same way MCA did against 
American Telstar and which it expects to obtain against John LaMonte's 
Creative Sounds (at press time, the decision was pending in the Creative 
Sounds case). In all, MCA has about 20 other legal actions against 
third-party licensees of the Chess product. 

In addition to lost revenue for the company, MCA claims that artists 
who have recorded for the Chess labels, and are still alive to collect, are 
due royalties which the alleged pirate companies have not paid. A 
comprehensive worldwide trade and consumer advertising campaign 
has been launched by MCA to inform retailers and the buying public 
that there are a number of non-MCA Chess titles in the marketplace and 
not to stock or buy them. The company also instituted an 800 number 
for reporting alleged pirate titles and has retained lawyers in London, 
Paris, Brussels, Portugal, Spain, Panama and other nations. 

Some of the artists on the Chess labels include Chuck Berry, Etta 
James, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf.

MUSIC REVIEWS 


By Randy Clark 


SINGLES 


ALBUMS 


H FLEETWOOD MAC; "Paper Doll" (Warner Bros. 
PRO-CD-5872) 

As one of four new songs released on the band's latest 
four-CD/72-song boxed set 25 Years — The Chain, this reg- 
gae-flavored, Nicks-sung single boasts being the first ever 
cut to feature eveiy member of the group since 1975. 
That's the most interesting thing about the song — the rest 
has album cut written all over it, although it's reminiscent 
in sound to the late '70s Mac incarnation should warrant 
some AC radio attention. Richard Dashut produces. 




H EDDIE MONEY: "Save A Little Room In Your Heart 
For Me" (Columbia CSK 4887) 

This reflective romance ballad was recorded live during 
performances at a pair of Texas nightclubs earlier this 
year, and can be found on Eddie's unp/ug It In acoustic 
HP. The surprisingly warm-voiced Money has written a 
touching track befitting similar attention that has been 
paid to other artist's Unplugged work, despite the fact 
the idea was MTV's. Well, maybe now he'll get asked on 
the show. Eddie produces along with Monty Byrom and 
Frank Anthony. 


H SWING OUT SISTER: "Nolgonnachange" (Fontana 
CDP 715) 

Following up on the chart success of their current "Am I 
The Same Girl" single, the latest from the duo's Get In 
Touch With Yourself album is another mild-mannered 
dance track with a sort of Sade meets Barry White 
groove. Latin percussion, a '70s disco beat, a Love Un- 
limited Orchestra string arrangement and a smooth 
Brazilian-style vocal from Connne Drewery who co- 
writes with partner, Andy Connell. The act is produced 
by contributing songwriter, Paul Staveley O'Duffy. 




H AC/DC: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" (Atco PRCD 
4901) 

Just a little more retro-action here. Sure it's the same song 
we all knew long ago, except this time it's done live, 
recorded on the road during the '90-91 tour. This is the 
second single to come off the band's platinum Live 
double album, (the first was "Highway To Hell," natch). 
The group is still in great form, and singer Brian Johnson 
delivers the classic song with the same bravado as ol' Bon 
Scott did back in 1976. Produced by Bruce Fairbaim. 


H TOM TOM CLUB: "You Sexy Thing" (Sire/Reprise 
PRO-CD-5672) 

Well, 1 don't know why they didn't push one of their own 
originals before this track, but as covers go, this one is 
fun. Former Talking Heads, Tina Weymouth and Chris 
Frantz (teamed up with Mark Roule and Bruce Martin) 
do a number on the old Hot Chocolate ditty in a techno- 
pop send up that should make all the bopp>ers at the 
dance clubs happy. The song is from the group's summer 
release. Dark Sneak Love Action and is produced by them- 
selves. 




■ FIREHOUSE: "Sleeping With You" (Epic ESK 4874) 
Ever since a few records that were done acoustically be- 
came big hits a couple of years ago, it seems everybody 
wants to get into the act. The latest to jump on board are 
these 1992 American Music Award winners with an 
acoustic version of one of the songs they did with a har-

■ GO WEST: Indian Summer (EMI 0777 7 94230 2 6) 

After two years since "The King Of Wishful Thinking" 
popped off the Pretty Woman soundtrack to achieve ^art 
success, this duo (Peter Cox and Richard Drummie) 
returns with a similarly flamboyant album of soulful pop 
and ballads. The 13-cut CD includes the soundtrack hit, 

11 new originals and a respectful cover of Bobby 

Caldwell's "What You Won't Do For Love." In addition to 
themselves. Go West has enlisted producers Peter Wolf, 

Ron Fair and Jon Gass. 


WAir T s 

H BARENAKED LADIES: Gordon (Sirc/Reprise 9 

26956-2) 

This popular Canadian quintet offers an oversized por- 
tion of wit, sarcasm, and humor on their 15-track debut 

Ip. Sometimes mocking the styles of 10,000 Maniacs or 

Tracy Chapman, the acoustic-oriented group has many 
musical, lyrical and harmonic surprises hidden within 
these seemingly tongue-in-cheek (inside humor) songs 
that range alltne way from the silly, like their first single 
"Be My Yoko Ono," to the maudlin "The Flag." Producer 
is Michael Phillip-Wojewoda. 

■ PRAISE: Praise (Giant 9 24472-2) 

This London-based group (vocalist, Miriam Stockley and 
cornposer-instrumentalists Simon (Ikildenberg and (Teoff 
McCormack) have managed to merge New Age electronic 
sounds with World Beat percussion sounds. International 
instrumentation, (30 musicians credited) with gospel and 
African choir harmonies fronted by soothing blends of 
Miriam's often abstract lead vocals (which sometimes 
don't say or mean a thing). Different? Very. Richard James 
Burgess produces. 



1 THE BEAUTIES: The Beauties (Gasoline Alley 
GASD-10575) 

This 12-cut debut album has many of the hopes found on 
the first works of many rock bancis, (great chops, big ener- 
gy and good intentions) and possibly more than most, 
but no new ground has been broken here. Hollywood 
seems to have countless rock bands, this one is a product 
of singer /lyricist, Steven McNeil and 
guitanst/songwriter Jason Nesmith (?). The Beauties 
drive hard with angst-filled, rock/funk/blues, but there's 
more smoke here than flame. Steve Levine produces. 

■ FLOTSAM AND JETSAM: Cuatro (MCA 

MCAD-10678) 

This is the fouith album to come from the Phoenix, AZ- 
based metal band (hence the title). Ironically, they've 
finished their fourth world tour and are on their fourth 
bass player, too. With two powerful guitarists, a strong 
lead vocalist, backed by a tight rhythm section (they all 
sing), producer Neil Kemon ((Jueensryche, Hall & Oates) 
has focused this crunchin' metal machine on this 12-track 
album into a solid unit worthy of bigger notoriety. 



H ULTRAMARINE: Every Man And Woman Is A Star 
(Dali 61443-2) 

First of all let me say this is a concept album. Paul Ham- 
mond and Ian Coopier have stretched the boundaries of 
what could best be described as house music. But the 
sounds created by this English duo is more than just 
electronic house trippings. They combine different acous- 
tic instruments with synlhesized sounds and 
programmed rhythms, with strange vocal inputs (some 
spoken, others are sung lyricless) and eclectic melodies. 
Ultramarine and Jolly James produce. 


PICK OF THE WEEK: 



■ TYKA NELSON: Yellow Moon, Red Sky (CMC 4122-2) 

Even though this is her second 
album, there are still those out 
there who are unaware of Tyka's 
vocal and songwriting abilities... or 
that she's the little sister of one of 
the biggest stars in the music busi- 
ness. But being overshadowed by 
brother Prince wasn't about to stop 
the abundant inherent talents 
handed down from their musical 
parents. On this album, Tyka 
shows off her writing skills on nine 
of the Ip's 12 tracks which range 
from dance-floor jams like "Boy 
Do You Feel Lucky" to sweetly 
sung ballads like 'T Want You" to 
the sultry island feel of the title 
track. Tyka produces along with 
Benny Dellinger and "B Slammin'

MOVE OVER ANDREW LLOYD-WEBBER...: Here comes 
PeteTownshend. Tommy — who, like Jason, just won't die — will 
open as a Broadway musical, April 22, at the St. James Theatre. 
It's an expanded version of the production that played during 
the summer at the La Jolla Playhouse and it, like that, will be 
directed by Des McAnuff. Says Townshend: "Tommy has always 
been a theatre piece, but commissioned, conceived and written 
for the rock venue. Our original aim in 1968 was to help to 
redefine the limits of performance and narrative rock. We felt we 
should get away with it, and even if we failed we could only 
starve, and we were already well on the way to that condition 
when we started out on Tommy. Smashing guitars was a costly 
way to stay in the public view." 

Okay, why not? Tommy was an album, then a concert tour, then 
a movie, then a soundtrack album, then another concert tour, etc. 
And, as I pointed out in my column about Randy Newman, 
Broadway can use a bit of impetus from the rock and pop music 
worlds. But there's something slightly depressing about it all. 
Pete Townshend was an important figure in rock and roU, the 
Who was an important rock and roll band. But the Who are 
finished; their last tour — with horns and back-up singers and 
synthesizers — was a poor exercise in nostalgia, faded glory at its 
most faded. Tommy sounded tired, Roger Daltrey's fringed 
clothes and spinning microphones looked tired, everything felt 
wrong. The band look embarrassed. The show 1 caught didn't 
have one iota of the fire and energy of the Who in their heyday, 
a heyday which seems to be gone. So there's Roger Daltrey on, 
yes, Regis and Kathie Lee, hawking a new solo album, talking 
about a, yes, 30th anniversary Who tour next summer. And 
there's Townshend — a smart, funny, intelligent man — retreading 
those same deaf, dumb and blind boy tires. Tommy on Broadway. 
Broadway. The land of blue-haired ladies and $60 tickets. If 
Townshend was writing a new musical for Broadway, okay, but 
this just makes an old Who fan like myself sad. Keith Moon, we 
hardly knew ye....

Former President Jimmy Carter addressed industry members at a

Cities In Schools, the nation's largest dropout prevention program.

TAPPING THE FILM-GOING MARKET: Although label 
marketing execs are constantly trying to find new ways to push 
product, in the last year there has been a concerted effort on the 
part of several independent organizations to offer their help in 
discovering strange new marketing worlds and going where no 
man (or commercial advertiser) has gone before. 

Having a captive audience is a clever way of force-feeding the 
unsuspecting public (the airlines have been doing it for years), 
and the latest group to be tapped into has been the film-goer. Why 
not? They obviously have a few dollars to spend if they can afford 
to be sitting in a movie theater, so why not try to seU them a little 
music while they stand in line for popcorn or sit waiting for the 
15 minutes of trailers and commercials to start? 

A less subtle and more expensive form of pitching new 
releases in movie houses has been to actually show filmed footage 
for a particular act after the lights have gone down, a not-often- 
used tactic and primarily used when there is a tie-in with the label 
and a particular film company, distributor, or theater chain. Then, 
of course, there's not only the real time cost factor in running the 
piece to consider, but the cost of production itself. It's cheaper 
when you shoot the making of a particular video or special, but 
still costly. (SBK did a summer push this way for Wilson Phillips' 
last album.) 

So now a new company comes along with the idea of soliciting 
the contractual obligation of a particular theater or chain by 
providing them with a varied assortment of new and established 
acts from an assortment of different labels. Movie Tunes has 
secured the 1,600 theater AMC movie chain and has been promot- 
ing albums from various labels, however, most of the actual sales 
results have been speculative. 

With the Christmas film season just about in full swing, why 
not have the opportunity to check out the impact of these 
programs at the retail level and see if the. effectiveness can be 
monitored? The December program for Movie Tunes includes 
priority projects from Capitol (The Beatles' 30th anniversary 
campaign), Hollywood Records (the Night And The City film 
soundtrack). Private Music (Yanni), Virgin (a new Roy Orbison 
project) EMI (with Go West), and MCA (with Patty Smyth and 
the Northern Exposure soundtrack). 

The labels will be participating in a special retail test of these 
projects to determine the efectivness of the campaign in the 
Phoenix area through the holidays and into the new year, with 
participation from the Wherehouse Music chain. A timely idea 
considering if the concept proves to be beneficial. Movie Tunes 
can not only validate their claims, but more importantly... they 
can raise their rates. Good old-fashioned American capitalism in 
action... I love it... Adios muchachos. Next week...

INDIE / NEWS 


From Scratch 


INDIE 

MUSIC 


By John Carmen 



CASH BOX, VARIETY, HITS — we're what's called "the 
trades." But down in the trenches, the real nitty-gritty fans are 
doin' it for themselves. 

'Tanzines" have been the backbone of rock and roll, hip-hop, 
punk, jazz and whatever since before the Beatles. Home-made 
and homegrown, they are the ultimate do-it-yourself, the crudest 
of the crude. Fanzines helped re-define rock journalism in the 
stagnant '70s after the original rock mags like Crawdaddy had 
folded, and Rolling Stone became a glossy corporate mouthpiece. 
Such punk-era tabloids like Punk Magazoon and Sniffin' Glue 
breathed new life into the dead horse of rock fandom and critis- 
cism. 

In the '90s, we're up against the corporate juggernaut again, 
bigger is better, the club scene is moribund, and it seems to be 
"no fun" all over again. But the seeds are being re-sown by the 
_ indie labels and by their inky 

" counterparts, the new fanzines. 

L.A.'s new rags are Dert 
and Fiz, both run by longtime 
L.A. scenestresses. Dawn 
Laureen and Wendy Mc- 
Connell, respectively. 

Laureen began Dert in July of 
1992, and is the quintessential 
one-woman show. "1 go out and 
do all of it, layout, art, sell ads, 
:■ distribute, you name it," says 
Laureen. A professional photog- 
rapher whose works have been 
shown in galleries (and was 
sued by Keith Richards over the 
supposed "commercialization" 
of his ugly likeness), Laureen is 
the typical pop-culture freak. 
"I'd love to make a living with 
Dert," she says. "We've already featured the Ramones, Holly 
Woodlawn and Hunt Sales on our cover, as well as Dukkey 
Flyswatter and the Duchess DeSade." (On the Duchess' photo, 
black duct tape was placed over her privates). 

Laureen has added the recent ser- 
vices of RIP writer Laurel Fishman to 
help out also. "Our first issue was 
stapled and xeroxed over Chinese food 
and beer all for $400," says Laureen. 
Dert is also available in New York, San 
Francisco, and San Diego, with Laureen 
handling most of the editorial chores 
with help from her paramour Frank 
Infante, whose function is "to add in- 
sults and concepts." Far out. 

Fiz is a far more ambitious 'zine, 
however. McConnell and partner 
Kathy Lindell started up their mag 
with a $3,000 nut, and have put out four impressively slick issues. 
"We've had Inger Lorre, Social Distortion and Sonic Youth on the 
cover so far," says McConnell. An accountant at Cinetel Films by 
day, McConnell also dreams of Fiz as full-time. "So far no profit, 
but we are at break even," says McConnell. "It began as a labor 
of love, though." 

Fiz is available worldwide, and is distributed by Dutch East, 
and can be found at Tower Records everywhere. "We've been 
really lucky with our advertisers," says McConnell. "Although 
now I can see the headaches of dealing with distributors like the 
indie labels do." McConnell's husband Dave is also the 
magazine's music editor, making this truly a family affair.

Victor, "Kessen Wa Kinyouri Taiyouga Miteiru," Dreams Come True, 
Epic Sony; and "Won't Be Long," The Bubble Gum Brothers, Epic Sony. 
In the album section quadruple platinum went to Yoni Manyou No Hana 
Ga Sakunari, Southern All Stars, Victor. "Hold Me" by Zard on Polydor 
and "Fair Affair," Masayuki Suzuki, Epic Sony went platinum. The 
Gold Album awards went to 7 titles in which Natsu No Owarini by 
T-Bolan, Rock It Records; Guitarhythm 111, Torayasu Futai, Toshiba EMI 
and East Asia, Miyuki Nakajima, Pony Canyon, were included. 

A NEW RECORD COMPANY, Nippon Mercury Records, was 
established here in October. At the announcement party president 
Shigero Aoki said, "Our company will try wide genres." NMR is a 
rebirth of the old Nippon Mercury, which had a long tradition here. 
THE ASSOCIATION OF HOME TAPING ROYALTIES will be 
established here in 1993. According to a copyright amendment law in 
which a home taping royalties payment system is created, this associa- 
tion is the only route qualified to use a right to collect and control the 
royalties paid by both importers and manufacturers of digital audio 
recorders and digital audio blank medias. According to the law, the 
association will distribute the royalties to the copyright owners, in- 
cluding composers and lyricists. However, 20% of the total royalties 
will be expended to a common purpose of the music industries. For 
instance: publicities of the copyright or bringing up of fresh artists. 
The association will be sponsored by RIAJ (Record Industries Associa- 
tion of Japan), JASRAC (Japan Association of Rights of Authors, 
Composers and Publishers) and JASA (Japan Association of Artists 
and Singers). 

TOTAL REVENUES OF KING RECORDS for the first six months 
of 42nd term fiscal (March to September 1992) were 9.7% down from 
the comparable term of 1991 with $62 million. According to the com- 
pany, steep down of CDs by 16% was the main factor. Besides this, few 
smash hits in this term were big reason for poor total results. Breaking 
it down: CDs were $37 million, music tapes showed $1 million, 0.6% 
down, video tapes were $3.5 million, 33% down while video disc was 
$8.4 million, 11.1% up over the comparable six months of '91.

TALENT REVIEW 

Barbara Cook 


By Robert Adels 



WESTWOOD PLAYHOUSE, LOS ANGELES, CA— Most musi- 
cal theater ingenues are bedeviled by their inevitable maturity. But the 
angelic-voiced Barbara Cook has always had God and a devoted 
audience on her side. 

Her soprano voice retains all the heavenly brilliance of her Marian 
the Librarian performance in The Music Man (Capitol) — the original cast 
album which spent over 200 weeks on the charts (a dozen of them at 
#1). Her emotive powers so completely showcased in She Loves Me 
(Broadway's first Top 20 two-record set) have only improved with the 
passage of time. 

What consistently transforms Ms. Cook's Broadway stage talents 
into concert stage sorcery is her unfailing ability to turn a simple song 
into a grand production number — without benefit of scenery, chorus 
line or overkill. With only her longtime pianist Wally Harper and bassist 
Bob Daugherty as supporting cast, Barbara Cook turns a bare stage into 
a spectacle-filled arena. 

Through the years, her solo performance resume has included both 
the larger-than-life Carnegie Hall and the intimate Blue Angel. The only 
perceptible change in her demographics is that now her audiences 
include many ticket buyers too young to have seen her at the latter. 

At her three-week Westwood run, she opened with the medley that 
first kicked off her second Columbia album (As Of Today) and has since 
become her signature intro (Wally Harper's "Sing A Song With Me" 
and Irving Berlin's "Let Me Sing And Tm Happy"). 

Many of Barbara's other song choices (Rodgers &c Hart's "He Was 
Too Good To Me" and "Carolina In The Morning" from her Columbia 
Carnegie Hall album) come with long-standing "standard" credentials. 
Other, newer tunes earn their "standard" stripes through Ms. Cook's 
ingenuity (Janis Ian's "Stars" and Amanda McBroom's "Ship In A 
Bottle"). There is no age discrimination in Ms. Cook's delivery as each 
song becomes hers alone from the first note. 

From Broadway, Barbara reprises "Till There Was You" (from her 
Tony-award-winning Music Man), "When I Marry Mr. Snow" (from her 
recently re-recorded MCA Carousel) and "Losing My Mind" (from her 
'85 Grammy-winning Follies, RCA). After her classic "Vanilla Ice 
Cream" turn from She Loves Me (Polygram), she breaks character to 
perform the show's "Trip To The Library" number — successfully role- 
switching from proper ingenue to "improper girl with a past" without 
missing so much as one comic beat. 

Ms. Cook disclaims the title of jazz singer, yet her "I'm Beginning To 
See The Light" swings with undeniable improvisation. While she's 
never listed church music among her early influences, there's an 
authentic gospel edge to her "Come Rain Or Come Shine." And while 
she carefully distances herself from operatic singing, there's a grandeur 
to her performance that truly befits a diva. 

Few have so effortlessly made the transition from theater thrush to 
solo concert and recording artist. But Cook fans hope that her upcoming 
DRG album of Dorothy Fields songs will be the Hnd of "two-woman 
show" that will take her back to Broadway in more ways than one. 


TALENT REVIEW 

PJ Harvey 


By Hilarie Grey 



THE WHISKY, WEST HOLLYWOOD, C A— The political "Year of 
the Woman" has also been a banner year for female 
singer/songwriters, evidenced by excellent 1992 releases from Sarah 
McLachlan, Annie Lennox, Concrete Blonde and Suzanne Vega, just 
to name a few. Just when you thought the glory was winding down, 
the British trio PJ Harvey, whose debut release on Indigo/Island 
records. Dry, has been embraced by college radio and music critics 
across the country, hits the road with an exceptional live show which 
powerfully indicts the sexual politics tearing people apart. 

The trio, comprised of vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Polly Jean Har- 
vey, bassist Stephen Vaughan and drummer Robert Ellis, offered an 
absorbing 45- minute set to the packed -to-the-rafters crowd at The 
Whisky. They shook the walls with their unique sound, which mixes 
folk and power blues with punk fury, and rattled bones with searing 
lyrics recalling the hurt of Sinead O'Connor's The Lion And The Cobra, 
and the anger of the early Pretenders. 

Framed by the unusual, blistering rhythms provided by Vaughan 
and Ellis, Harvey wailed powerfully, using vivid lyrical images to 
explore complex emotions. In "Dress," for example, the dress is a 
symbol of sexual role playing which offers both power and oppression 
to the wearer. "Must be a way that I can dress to please him," she sang, 
following with "It's hard to walk in the dress/Tm spinning over like a heavy 
loaded fruit tree." 

"Hair," with its offbeat, swinging pace, found Harvey portraying 
the gender struggle through a dialogue between Samson and Delilah. 
Where Harvey cooed softly and longingly in the voice of Delilah against 
a quiet backdrop, the Samson passages crackled in a burst of musical 
and vocal fury, effectively illustrating the conflict on a number of levels. 

To portray these emotional rumblings, Vaughan's bass was given 
the unusual role of the lead instrumental voice of PJ Harvey, setting the 
tone and color on "Victory," and propelling the dynamic whirlwind of 
"Sheela-Na-Gig." "Sheela-Na-Gig" (the title refers to a Celtic fertility 
symbol) was a striking close to the trio's regular set, as Harvey took on 
the voice of a woman desperately clinging to a lover by offering herself. 
"Look at these my child-bearing hips/Look at these my ruby red lips/1 lay it all 
at your feet," she sang, with the lover's voice shouting coldly in response, 
“You exhibitionist!" Harvey effectively conveyed not only the devasta- 
tion of the woman's self-esteem, but also her musings on freedom — 
"Gonna wash that man right out of my hair /Take my hips to a man who cares." 

The trio returned to the stage for a brief encore set of the unreleased 
"Man-Sized," and "Water," the triumphant final piece on Dry. Though 
the band offered no banter other than a few quiet 'Thank you's" and 
shy smiling acknowledgments, it was apparent that a deep connection 
was made with the audience, which filed out of the club in uncharac- 
teristic quiet. 




RHYTHM & BLUES 


By M.R. Martinez 


THE 

RHYTHM 


THE FOUNDATION: Several com- 
panies in the music industry have col- 
lectively pledged $765,000 to the four- 
year-old Rhythm and Blues Founda- 
tion each year for the next three years. 

The R&B foundation is a philanthropic organization created to 
preserve the music form and to help defray medical expenses 
for those R&B artists who cannot afford it. The organization has 
already given more than $640,000 in awards and grants, includ- 
ing the Foundation's Pioneer Awards. More than $225,000 has 
been dispensed to artists to help pay medical bills. Record 
companies, music publishing companies and other industry 
sources are supplying the capital for this plan. 

Among the companies contributing are SONY Music Enter- 
tainment, the PolyGram Label Group, Rhino Records, Def Jam 
Recordings, MTV, Radio and Records, Jobete Music Publish- 
ing, BMI and ASCAP. The National Endowment of the Arts has 
also contributed $8,800 to the Foundation's Archive Project to 
conduct oral histories of R&B music. The foundation also works 
with the Smithsonian Institution, producing another Resident 
Associates program in the spring of 1993. 

The R&B Foundation recently set up a Rhythm & Blues 
Register aimed at helping the producers of re-issues of the semi- 
nal music to contact the original musicians and facilitate payment 
of royalties . Vee-Jay Records, with its 400-title strong catalog, is 
among the first companies to avail themselves to the Registry. 

The Foundation has announced the addition of seven trustees 
to its board. They include: Brenda Andrews of Almo Irving 
Rondor Music; CBS-TV newsman Ed Bradley; hit producers 
Jimmy "Jam" Harris and Terry Lewis; Frances Preston, CEO of 
BMI; Sylvia Rhone, president/CEO of EastWest Records; and hit 
producer Antonio "L.A." Reid of LaFace Records. 

SAMPLES: Atlantic Records is distributing the original mo- 
tion picture soundtrack of the documentary film Deep Blues, 
which is being released on Brit rocker Dave Stewart's Anxious 
Records. The film was produced by Stewart's Radioactive 
Productions and the soundtrack was produced by Robert Pal- 
mer. The 15-track disc features a variety of blues artists from the 
Mississippi Delta. ..Hollywood Records recording act Yothu 
Yindi, the Australian aboriginal world beat group, will be 
among indigenous artists featured at a special event at the 
United Nations Dec. 10 as part of a Human Rights Day celebra- 
tion. The event will mark the UN's launch of the 1993 Interna- 
tional Year of the World's Indigenous People.. .Lisa Lisa recently 
signed a recording contract with Pendulum Records which will 
release her debut album in August 1993. 


LOEB AND EVANS: Petite 
2)). Producer Joachim Becker. 

The music here alternates be- 
tween finely<rafted homage to 
the seminal fusion styles made 
legend by Miles Davis and 
Weather Report and the emerg- 
ing new fusion of jazz, R&B and 
contemporary classicism. With 
a line-up of formidable ses- 
sionists — all of whom have 
fronted their own projects — this 
disc demonstrates that Bill 
Evans (saxophones), Mitch For- 
man (keyboards), Victor Bailey 
(bass). Chuck Loeb (guitars) and 
Dennis Chambers (drums) can 
be like chameleons. Recorded 
live last summer at the Neuwied Jazz Festival and at the Fabrik in 
Hamburg, standout tracks on the wax are "Two Price Hit," 
"Millenium" and "Oh So Hip."

RAP/DANCE MUSK 


By M.R. Martinez 




Jamaican toaster Shabba Ranks and his ribald observations on iife 
have made the dancehali styie an indelible part of the urban music 
vista. His current Epic Records album, X-Tra Naked, the successor 
to his Grammy-winning label debut, 4s Raw As Ever, was celebrated 
during a party at the Banana Cafe in Manhattan. Pictured are (l-r): 
Dave Glew, president of Epic; Shabba Ranks; and Hank Caldwell, 
Epic senior vp of black music. 

SOUND NIBBLES: Malcolm X mania and exploitation is in 
full effect. It stands to reason that some of his family should be 
part of it. Gamilah Shabazz, the fourth of Malcolm's six 
daughters, serves up a rendering of "America's Living In A War 
Zone" — which incorporates a sample of her celebrat^ father's 
voice and lyrics by the likes of Ice Cube, Grand Puba, Mr. Biggs, 
Me Phi Me, Johnny Marrs and Shabazz herself. To be released 
by RCA Records, the single is the advance to an album titled 
Rated X...Luke Records artists Home Team is making noise with 
the street mix of the single "Pick It Up" from their album Via 
Satellite From Safwm...Antonius is helping to debut the label 
Platinum Artists Records, a new Atlanta, Ga.-based label that's 
releasing Antonius' "Young Doctor Feelgood." The label is 
headed by music industry veterans, the husband-and-wife team 
of Zetra and Merle Smith. 

REVIEWS 

H TRESPASS: Trespass (Sire/Wamer Bros. 26978). Producers: 
Various. 

-,a- Compilations like these boast a vast array of style 

■ music. This soundtrack album is no exception, 
with the movie title by Ice T and Ice Cube leading 
the way. But there's work by Public Enemy ("Gotta 
Do What 1 Gotta Do"), Sir Mix-A-Lot ("I Check My 
Bank") and Donald D. ("I'm Gonna Smoke Him") 
that also stand out on this collection. There's even a 

down-home, southern-fried rock track on here from the film score 
composer, Ry Cooder ("King of the Streets"). 

■ PARIS: Sleeping With The Enemy (Scarface SCR007 100-4). 
Producer: Paris. 

Finally out despite the controversy, Paris manages to serve up 
a varied sampler of his rage and his sense 

of music. Perhaps the most incendiary of- 

fering on this disc is "Bush Killa," which 
' ’ caused some concern even before it was 
^4 released. But he gets his points across on 

other cuts, like "House Niggas Bleed Too," "Conspiracy Of 
Silence" and "Guerillas In The Mist." Musically refreshing are 
tracks like "The Days Of Old" and "Assata's Song." 

■ LOUIE RANKIN: Showdown (Mesa R2 79045). Producers: Louie 
Rankin, Trakmasterz and others. 

Louie Rankin, toasts and sings his way through 
a varied, 11-song collection of dancehali, reggae and 
rap. Joined on the opening cut, 'Typewriter," by Red 
Hot Lover Tone of the Trakmasterz posse, Rankin 
shows that he can lay deep in the groove, without 
forsaking the patois. The title track is a bit of campy 
dancehali, "Muscle" sports a rolling groove and 
touchy-feelgood lyric, the eerie, engaging grooves 
of 'The Sting"(also featuring R^ Hot Lover Tone) have a gangsta 
feel.

The Answer To Your Prayers 

LEAP OF FAITH features gospel tunes arranged by the legendary 
Edwin Hawkins and may resurrect the career 
of the long lost Meat Loaf, whose "Paradise By 
The Dashboard Light" is featured in a key 
scene (there is a new video for it, too) and who 
also has a role in the film. 

The Paramount holiday picture set for Decem- 
ber 18 release stars Steve Martin as Reverend Jonas 
Nightengale, a revivalist with the skill to make 
people believe in the unbelievable. Nightengale 
sets up shop in the fictitious Rustwater, Kansas, a 
burg with a chilly economic climate and the home 
to numerous non-believers. Sheriff Will Braver- 
man (Liam Neeson) among them. Debra Winger is Jonas' business 
manager, who does battle with Braverman, Lolita Davidovich is a cynical 
waitress named Marva, and Lukas Haas is Marva's brother Boyd. 

Daniel Allan Carlin (Sister Act) was the production music supervisor 
and Cliff Eidelman (Star Trek VI) the composer of the score for Leap Of Faith. 
The MCA soundtrack accompanying the picture was largely produced by 
Geoige Duke, and in addition to the Meat Loaf tune has a Don Henley 
song, "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat," from the Broadway musical 
Guys And Dolls, as well as lots of gospel-oriented material. 

Patti LaBelle does a gospel rave-up, "Ready For A Miracle," Lyle Lovett 
and Duke join for "Pass Me Not," Albertina Walker does the hymn 
"Blessed Assurance," Wynonna Judd sings "Stone's Throw FromHurtin'" 
and there are two gospel medleys arranged by Hawkins. 

The Angels of Mercy, who serve as Jonas' choir in Leap Of Faith are played 
by real-life gospel singers including Ricky Dillard, leader of the New 
Generation Chorale, La Chanze (Once On This Island), Tony-winner 
Dolores Hall (Your Arm's Too Short To Box With God) and Walker. Frequently 
called The Queen of Gospel, Walker has twice been named Best Female 
Gospel singer and has received seven Grammy nominations. 

Fundamentalist Baptist authentic, and filmed in and around Plainview, 
TX, interior scenes for Leap Of Faith were filmed on Dallas' largest 
soundstage, where Jonas puts on a revival that has Rustwaterians dancing 
in the pews and bringing in the sheaves. 

Gospel fans who canbe accepting of the blasphemy shouldn't miss this 
one.

■ Sting; MTV Unplugged PolyGram/A&M Video $14.95 

Personally, I'm getting tired of every artist who 
plays the show using Unplugged as an opportunity 
to place a video in the marlit place, but thankful- 
ly, this is one of the better ones to come from the 
series. Looking evermore aristocratic. Sting per- 
forms all the hits you would want to hear, includ- 
ing "Every Breath You Take" and "Message In A 
Bottle," as well as best of recent solo material in a 
way that suggests he is not bored with doing so. 
This Unplugged was recorded at a live perfor- 
mance during Sting's 1991 Live Cages tour, and for 
those of you who might have taped it, 55-minute 
video includes three tracks not included on TV 
show. In the low key acoustic setting of the show, 
and because of excellent recording technology of video. Sting' s bass playing 
and the piano work of David Sancious stand out to even better effect than 
in typical live Sting concert. In other words, this is better than being there. 
May be the Sting vid for your archive 10 years hence. 

■ S.O.D. Live at Budokan Mega Vision, $19.98 

Easy listening fans, pregnant women and 
people with weak hearts should stay clear of this 
moshing, four-letter-word-infested work of art. 
This video looks into the formation of 
Stormtroopers Of Death back in the mid-'80s, 
discusses tWir dedicated fan base that didn't real- 
ly grow in numbers until later in the decade and 
contains live footage of their reunion show at the 
Ritz in New York City earlier this year. Whoever 
recorded the live show should be commended. 
You can hear every instrument clearly, with noth- 
ing overly loud. You can even hear someone get- 
ting punched as Billy Milano (vocals) uses his mic 
as a weapon in an attempt to get back to the stage. 
This 70-minute gem should be welcomed with 
open arms by all S.O.D. fans.

Soundtracks For 
The Season 


By Milt Petty 



Toys Soundtrack And The Muppet 
Christmas Carol 


THE BUZZ IS BUILDING 
FOR TWENTIETH CEN- 
TURY FOX’S TOYS, and with 
Robin Williams starring in this 
Barry Levinson- (Rain Man) 
directed comic fantasy about a 
toymaker set for release at 
Christmastime, how can this not 
be a hit? It will have to be awfully 
bad not to be good. Know what I 
mean? 

Toys has Williams playing what 
is described as a fanciful toymaker 
and Joan Cusack as his wacky sister. 
With the help of their friend, Robin 
Wright, they fight to keep their 
Scrooge-like uncle, played by 
Michael Gambon, from converting 
the family toy factory into a muni- 
tions plant. LL Cool J is the mean 
uncle's son, Patrick Zevo. 

The Toys soundtrack on Geffen, 
set for release on the 15th, includes 
the single by Wendy & Lisa and the 
Musical Cast Of Toys. Billed as the 
Main Theme from Toys, and entitled 
'The Closing Of The Year," it is al- 
ready in the marketplace. 

Toys soundtrack was produced 
and, in part, written by Trevor Horn 


(Yes) and Hans Zimmer. Included 
are two versions of the key track, 
"Let Joy And Innocence Prevail," an 
instrumental track by Pat Metheny 
and a vocal version by Grace Jones. 
Tori Amos sings her own tune 'The 
Happy Worker," Jane Siberry sings 
"Happy Reprise," Julia Migenes 
and Zimmer join for "Alsatia's Lull- 
aby," Thomas Dolby sings with 
Williams on the "Mirror Song" and 
a taste of "Tchaikovsky's Sym- 
phony No. 1" is added to the mix. 

Reworked versions of Enya's 
"Ebudae" and Frankie Goes To 
Hollywood's "Welcome To The 
Pleasuredome" round out this most 
imaginative set of sounds. 

Another family film. The Muppet 
Christmas Carol, opens December 11, 
accompanied by a soundtrack on 
Jim Henson Records, which is dis- 
tributed by the BMG Kidz label. 
The late Jim Henson, of course, was 
the crea tor of The Muppets concept. 

The Muppet Christmas Carol, 
based on Charles Dickens' classic 
Christmas story and directed by 
Henson's son Brian, stars Kermit 
The Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss 
Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Fozzie 
Bear as Fozziwig, Kermit's nephew 
Robin as Tiny Tim, Michael Caine 
as Ebeneezer Scrooge and a host of 
other Muppet supporting players. 

Original songs for this Muppet 
yuletide tale were written anci co- 
produced by Paul Williams, who 
earned a Grammy and two 
Academy Award nominations with 
his previous Muppet movie effort. 
Robert Kraft, whose resume in- 
cludes The Little Mermaid, also co- 
roduced. The original score for 
he Muppet Christmas Carol was 
composed by Miles Goodman. 

tW first single was Williams' 'Tt 
Feels Like Christmas" and also of 
note, Kermit sings lead on the 
touching "One More Sleep 'Til 
Christmas." Michael Caine makes 
his singing debut on 'Thankful 
Heart" Tony Bennett need lose no 
sleep), and country act Martina Mc- 
Bride does a fine job on the ballad, 
"When Love Is Gone." 

This film and its soundtrack are 
the perfect early holiday gifts for the 
little and not-so-litle ones among us. 


Murphy Cons Congress 

EDDIE MURPHY’S NEW PICTURE FOR TOUCHSTONE, The 

Distinguished Gentleman, directed by Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny) 
and written by Marty Kaplan, isn't all that distinguishable, but it is 
good for a few laughs and it does allow Murphy to do his thing while 
making a valid point or two about political chicanery in high places. 

When Honda Congressman Jeff Johnson (James Gamer in a cameo) 
dies, small-time con artist Thomas Jefferson Johnson (Murphy) has a 
brainstorm. Affiliating himself with a small political party already on the 
ballot, Murphy launches a successful election campaign based on name 
recognition and wins election to fill Gamer's seat. Johnson knows that a 
career as a Congressman allows one access to the perks of power in Fat City, 
Washington D.C., Babylon on the Potomac.

20 RUMP SHAKER (MCA) Wreckx-N-Effect DEBUT 


With the help of his hustling cohorts, Loretta (Sheryl Lee Ralph), Van 
Dyke (Sonny Jim Gaines), Armondo (Victor Rivers) and an administrative 
assistant (Grant Shaud from Murphy Brown as Arthur Reinhardt) who 
shows him the ropes, Johnson quickly adapts to this hustler's heaven, 
taking advantage of every opportunity to make a few thousand bucks and 
finagling an assignment to the powerful Power and Industry committee 
chaired by his Horidian colleague, the Nixonian Dick Dodge (believably 
portrayeci by Lane Smith, who, in fact, played President Nixon in the Final 
Days mini-series). 

Johnson's modus operand) turns, however, when he falls for love inter- 
est Celia Kirby (Victoria Rowell from The Bill Cosby Shaw). The daughter of 
an honest Congressman, she is an attorney who does pro bono work for 
organizations such as the one that contends power lines constructed by Olaf 
Anderson's (Joe Don Baker) company over Horida school grounds are 
causing cancer clusters. It's then that Johnson hatches a plan to do to 
Congress what this film suggests Congress has been doing to everybody 
else. In a kind of PACS, Lies and Videotape scenario, Johnson traps Dodge 
in scandalous behavior for all to see, presumably setting Washin^on on its 
ear. If only it were that easy. 

The Distinguished Gentleman brings to mind Bob Roberts in its underlying 
political point-of-view, but is clearly for more mass, light-hearted consump- 
tion. It's too bad that audiences have little doubt that the kinds of payoffs 
depicted in the film are commonplace. 

Soundtrack for Distinguished Gentlerrmn is on Varese Sarabande featur- 
ing music composed and conducted by Randy Edelman. Music in the film 
includes "Happy Days Are Here Again," "^ul Trilogy HI" by Chuckii 
Booker and "The Politics of Love" by Phil Marshall.

BUENA VISTA COUNTRY — The sounds of country music and 
country's riveting new look and style will come together for Best Of 
Country '92: Countdown at the Neon Armadillo, a two-hour network 
television event from Buena Vista Entertainment airing Thursday 
December 10 from 8;00-10;00 pm on the ABC network. Featuring the 
events that refined country music for the '90s, the special will be hosted 
by Clint Black and Mary-Chapin Carpenter, co-hosted by Billy Dean, 
and will include a special salute to Garth Brooks. 

ASCAP HONORS MEDIA — The American Society of Composers, 
Authors, and Publishers will honor the winners of the 25th Annual 
ASCAP-Deems Taylor Awards at the organization's New York City 
headquarters December 8. ASCAP president Morton Gould and 
managing director Gloria Messinger will present the awards for 
outstanding print and media coverage of music for 1991. KLRU-TV's 
Austin City Limits will be among the recipients for excellence in broad- 
casting and its commitment to the preservation of American music 
ranging from folk, to new, traditional, and Texas country. 

BMI JAZZES UP THE HOLIDAYS — Embarking on their second 
season of Jazz on Music Row, BMI will present the first of four Sunday 
afternoon jazz concerts at the Nashville office. Pianist Thomas Cain, 
bassist Jim Ferguson and saxophonist Sam Levine, among others, will

non-profit educational institution for children from low-income 
families.

the promotion of Tammy Genovese to the newly created position of 
Director of Operations. ..Kitty Moon, president of Scene Three, Inc. 
has announced the addition of L.A.-based director Joe Gutt to the 
Nashville film and television production company. 

LIBERTY GETS THE BLUES — Liberty Records, which 
prophesied a major move into other genres of music with its renaming 
ceremonies earlier this year, has just signed internationally acclaimed 
slide guitarist, producer, and contemporary blues artist Roy Rogers. 
Rogers won a Grammy in 1990 for his production of Bonnie Raitt and 
John Lee Hooker's "I'm In The Mood" and was nominated in 1991 for 
his performance on the feature film soundtrack for The Hot Spot. His 
three solo albums include Chops Not Chaps, Slidewinder, and Blues On 
The Range.

DUO WITH LEDOUX — Garth Brooks recently made a surprise visit to TNN’s 
Nashville Now, joining friend Chris LeDoux on their #1 hit, “Whatcha 
Gonna Do With A Cowboy.” Following the live Impromptu performance, 
both artists swapped kudos about the other. Brooks cited LeDoux as 
having a major influence on his live show, and LeDoux, in turn, thanked 
Brooks for the infamous line bearing his name in the early Brooks hit 
“Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old.” (Photo Credit: Kevin Kenwor- 
thy) 



I BELIEVE IN PLATINUM — Vince Gill got his just reward while hosting his 
Third Annual Celebrity Basketball Game and Concert, benefiting 
Nashville's Belmont University and Athletic and Music Business depart- 
ments. Before the concert began, MCA executives Bruce Hinton (left) and 
Tony Brown surprised Gill with a platinum album plaque for his recently 
released I Still Believe In You, Gill's third and fastest-selling album on MCA 
to date. (Photo Credit: Beth Gwinn) 

CROOK & CHASE DO TINSELTOWN— TNN's dream -team talk 
show hosts, Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase will be venturing to 
California to co-host The Hollywood Women's Press Club's 52nd 
Annual Golden Apple Awards. The Golden Apple Awards' tradition- 
al gathering of Hollywood greats will convene Sunday, December 13, 
at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. 

AWARD-WINNING SONGWRITER DIES— Songwriter, publish- 
er, actor, and radio personality, Charlie Williams has died of cancer at 
the age of 62. Formerly a radio personality in Los Angeles, Williams 
had more than 200 of his songs recorded by artists such as Johnny 
Cash, Bobby Bare, Ray Charles, Randy Travis, Willie Nelson, and Eddy 
Arnold. His BMI Million-Air Award, which he received for the song 
"500 Miles Away From Home," was just one of six he received from 
the performing rights organization in his lifetime. 



LYLE LOVETT'S RIGHT BESIDE ME— No, it wasn’t Mary-Chapin, but rather 
ASCAP’s Merlin Littlefield (left) and Arista’s Steve Wariner (right) who were 
side by side with Lovett backstage recently at the Grand Ole Opry House.

REVIEW 


By Brad Hogue and Cory Cheshire 

SINGLES 

OUT OF THE BOX 

H BILLY DEAN "Tryin' To Hide A Fire 
In The Dark" (Liberty/SBK) 

Producers: Jimmy Bowen/Billy Dean 
Writers: Billy Dean/Tim Nichols 
Album: Fin In Tho Dark 

If you thought "Billy The Kid" was all this guy had to offer, 
then think again. This first single from his new album might be 
considered a groundbreaker. Dean gives this self-penned original 
a seductive drawl that'll make the women melt. Can't wait to see 
the video. 

FEATURE PICKS 

H STACY DEAN CAMPBELL "Poor Man's Rose" (Columbia) 

Producer: Brent Maher 

Writers: Stacy Dean Campbell/Bill Owsley/Jody Spence 
Album: Lonatomo Wins Again 

From his terrific debut album. Lonesome Wins Again, Stacy 
Dean Campbell sings this one with heart and soul sweetness. 
He'll even make you think roses are better than diamonds. 

H JOE DIFFIE "Startin' Over Blues" (Epic) 

Producers: Bob Montgomery/Johnny Slate 
Writers: Lonnie Williams/Sanger D. Shafer 
Album: Regular Joa 

Smokin' Joe turns into Lonesome Joe on "Startin' Over Blues." 
It's fiddle-twang tradition straight from another decade. "/ set my 
beer doom somewhere, and I'll find it if I can..." 


ALBUMS 


I TEXAS TORNADOS Hangin' On By A Thread (Reprise) 

The four guys who began their career together as the un- 
rehearsed Tex-Mex Revue have since won one Grammy and have 
been nominated for another. Now with their third album, Hangin' 
On By A Thread, could a trend be developing for the unassuming 
Texas Tornados? In a sea of normalcy, the south-of-the-border 
sounds infused with '50s romance, '90s rock, and the album's star 
songs, a tie between the soulful ballad, 'The One And Only" and 
the comic relief of "Guacamole," Hangin' On... is fluent in top-rate 
performances. While you will hear the characteristic accordion of 
Flaco Jimenez, don't expect it to be all tangos and tamales; there's 
way too much variety for that.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT 

A Lot About Livin’ 
With Alan Jackson 

By Brad Hogue 

ALAN WHO? This is a question one might have asked five years ago. 

Today, however, in country music the 
name Alan is undoubtedly going to be 
followed with Jackson. The name will 
most likely be prefaced with words 
such as "million-selling," "award- 
winning," or "country superstar." 
Since 1989, the Arista Records 
cornerstone has achieved phenomenal 
success in the field. His debut album. 
Here In The Real World, has sold 1.7 
million copies, the award-winning fol- 
low-up, Don't Rock The Jukebox, is cur- 
rently at 2.3 million, and his latest 
release, A Lot About Livin' (And A Little 
'Bout Love) shipped gold and current 
sales are nearing platinum. With 
Miller Lite as corporate sponsor of his 
touring entourage, Jackson has played over 130 concert dates in 1992, 
and has performed to more than a million people. 

Undeniably one of the hottest players in the game, Jackson kicks off 
another leg of his tour in Huntsville, Alabama on January 15, 1993. With 
a new set designed by technical wizard Ian knight (Paula Abdul), 
which largely incorporates various video screens into the concert ex- 
perience, Jackson is arguably the first country artist to take such a set 
on the road. In spite of all the fancy equipment, the tour will support 
his new album, which consists of the same type of traditional country 
music that made him famous. 

"I think the new album is a little stronger than the first two albums," 
says Jackson, "but the only real difference is that the previous albums 
were a little more personal. There's only so much you can write about 
your own life, then you have to start writing about other things." 

One of those other things includes his latest single, "She's Got The 
Rhythm (And I Got The Blues)," which he co-wrote with Randy Travis. 
Released on October 1, the song currently holds a bulleted #8 position 
on the Cash Box Top 100 Country Singles chart. "We wrote it," Jackson 
says, "because we wanted to pitch it to B.B. King, but I ended up taking 
it, arranging it, and making it my own. I've been doing it in the show 
every night, and the fans reeilly seem to like it. It's a fun song for the 
album." 

Another fun song is "Mercury Blues." While it's been widely 
publicized that Jackson has had a fruitful love affair — with cars, "Mer- 
cury Blues" is one of the few cuts on the album which Jackson didn't 
write. "It's a song that an old drummer friend of mine brought to my 
attention some time ago," Jackson explained. "We used to play it in the 
clubs a lot when the club owners wanted us to do some rock n' roll. I've 
always liked the lyrics since Tm such a car nut, so we changed the 
arrangement a little and countryfied it. I do it as the encore just about 
every night." 

Jackson, who penned seven of the 10 cuts on the album, says his 
favorite is "(Who Says) You Can't Have It All." It's one of the few cuts 
on the album which wasn't written during his last tour. '7im McBride 
and I wrote the song a couple years ago, and I've been hangin' on to it 
the best I could, even though everybody's been trying to pitch it to other 
people." 

Other select cuts from the album include "Chattahoochee," which 
is the song from which the album title, A Lot About Livin' (And A Little 
'Bout Love), was taken, "If It Ain't One Thing (It's You)," which is an apt 
example of Jackson's ability to write great country hooks, and the 
lighthearted "I Don't Need The Booze (To Get A Buzz On)," which 
landed in Jackson's hands accidentally. 

Concerning the pressure factor of headlining, and following two 
incredibly successful albums, Jackson said, "All you can do is all you 
can do. We just tried to pick good songs like we did for the first two 
albums. So far that's worked pretty well." 

Td say "pretty well" is a bit of an understatement.

INDIE FEATURE PICKS 

■ P.J. HAWK (Kottage) 


INSIGHT 


You 

Since showcasing his first single, "It's 
Been One Of Those Days," P.J. Hawk has swept up the accolades 
as advocates of his singing style reported that a true independent 
winner had been recognized. Now with "Are You Sure," Hawk 
sails clean through this slower, steadier ballad. A fine follow-up. 


■ MARION HAMMERS (IntersUte 40) 

"Get Me Just As Close To Her As You Can" 

Marion Hammers laments the loss of her man using a very 
interesting plot line that cannot be downgraded for lack of or- 
ginality. For Hammers it seems to be summed up by a twang and 
a trim. Take a listen. 


INDIE ALBUM PICK 

It’s A Cow Christmas (SPI 42697) 

Producers: Rob Barrett, Jr^John Olson/Terry Esau 

The masterminds behind It's A Cow Christmas have successful- 
ly milked the cattle phrases dry for this hilarious (and tasteful) 
repertoire of Christmas favorites. The catch is that while a lot of 
comedy albums, seemingly made for the pure humor often 
neglect style or sophistication, the crew at Spinnaker Enterprises 
and writer John Olson have remained loyal to their jingle heritage 
with a commercially sound parody on the nation's heartland and 
its barnyard subjects. Great for the person who has everything, 
especially a sense of humor.

AROUND 

THE 

ROUTE 


HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED a most 
bountiful Thanksgiving. Guess by now 
we're all through brown-bagging our 
cold turkey sandwiches! 

SHOWTIME IN DALLAS. The recently held lAAPA show at 
the Convention Center in Dallas saw a good number of coin-op 
tradesters participating, both as exhibitors and observers. As- 
sociation officials were still evaluating the results when we 
made contact, however, we can report an exhibitor count of 700 
and an estimated attendance of 18,000, plus a lot of favorable 
comments from coin-opers who were there. Next year's event is 
scheduled for November 17-20, 1993 at the Los Angeles Conven- 
tion Center. 

COIN’ GREAT! Two of the newest redemption pieces intro- 
duced by Bromley, Incorporated at the October AMOA conven- 
tion, and subsequently featured at the Parks Show (lAAPA), 
have been getting terrific reaction, according to sales manager 
Joe Bundra. They are; Clay Shoot, a two-player gun game; and 
Quarter Mile, which is a "quarter driving game," where you start 
at the top and "drive" your quarter down through seven levels. 
Skill plays a major role in this one. As for Rock 'n Bowl, this 
"redemption staple," as Joe calls it, is now three years young — 
and still hot! Elsewhere in this column you'll see a photo of 
Bundra, with Bromley prexy Lauran Bromley and Cash Box's 
Nashville operations director Mark Wagner, with Clay Shoot and 
Quarter Mile in the background. This was taken in the Bromley 
exhibit at AMOA Expo. 

SHOWTIME IN CHICAGO. We're referring to Pinball Expo 
'92 at the Ramada in Rosemont. Rob Berk, creator and organizer 
of this event called it "our smoothest to date." Attendance was 
good. ..the seminar program was interesting and well 
received. ..and the ever-growing presence of coin-op tradesters 
was most evident. Take a look at the list of seminar moderators 
and panelists which included Alvin and Michael Gottlieb along 
with Jerry Armstrong of Alvin G & Co., whose session drew a 
good crowd. Roger Sharpe (Williams Bally/Midway), Gil Pol- 
lock (Premier), Alvin Gottlieb, and Data East Pinball's Ed 
Cebula led a panel discussion on "Pinball Today And The 
Future," with some emphasis on the continuing acceptance of 
dollar play, which also attracted a sizeable audience. Gottlieb's 
new Cue Ball Wizard, by the way, was the featured piece for the 
popular Pinball Tournament (which is among Expo's high- 
lights); Premier's facilities in Bensenville, IL was the site for this 
year's Pinball Expo tour; and Premier prexy Gil Pollock was a 
key speaker at the convention banquet. Broadway Arcade owner 
Steve Epstein and IFPA's (Int'l. Flipper Pinball Assn.) Doug 
Young conducted a panel discussion on pinball tournaments 
and leagues, which was also a crowd pleaser. Noted pinball 
machine designer Pat Lawlor gave an interesting and well at- 
tended talk on pinball design. Rob Berk told us that this year's 
show also saw a number of overseas visitors from such countries 
as Japan, Germany and Holland. Next year's event will be held 
a little earlier in the season. Dates are Sept. 9-12, 1993 at the 
Ramada in Rosemont.

COIN MACHHE 


LC.E.’s Full 


Ck}urt Frenzy 

CHICAGO — Innovative Concepts In Entertainment, Inc. has once 
again teamed up with designer Sam Kim of G.L. Technology to 
produce an outstanding new basketball game called Full Court Frenzy 
which was officially unveiled at the recently held lAAPA Show in 
Dallas. In 1991, 1.C.E. received the "Best Novelty Game of the Year" 
award (voted upon by U.S. operators) for Putting Challenge, which was 
also licensed from G.L. Technology. 

"Basketball Is Back.. .Full Court Style" is the slogan for the new piece 
and Full Court Frenzy runs true to form, representing a new generation 
of coin-op basketball. A key element is the patent^ multi-positional 
basket and backboard (rotational and linear movement), offering a 
wide variety of shots, all within the three-foot width of the game. 

The basket positioning system is operated by two gear motors 
(controlling the linear and rotary action), and an optical tracking system 
(controlling the position of the turntable unit). With this technology, the 
game achieves an unsurpassed level of play value. 

Full Court Frenzy offers a number of truly unique features including 
real live sounds such as dribbling, sneaker squeaks, rock 'n roll music 
and a 3-point announcer; as well as a 19" Wells-Gardner Monitor for 
game selection, player selection, post-game stats and scoring and 
timing; along with a programmable message display. It's all here — and 
playing this game is the next best thing to being on the court yourself! 

One to four can play and they can choose from three different games. 
The machine has a sleuth-type, anti-tamper alarm system which not 
only alerts the location to the "cheater" but even turns the basket 
around to completely negate any such attempt. 

I.C.E. officials report that Full Court Frenzy has been bringing in 
terrific earnings on test, particularly in bars and arcades. Further infor- 
mation may be obtained through factory distributors or by contacting 
I.C.E. at 1501 Kensington Ave., Buffalo, NY 14215.

After The Ball Is 
Over— Have Another! 

SRO ALL THE WAY AT ATLAS DIST.-OHIO! You have been 
hearing and reading about all of the post-AMOA Expo showings 
distribs have been hosting throughout the country. These events 
provided a positive follow-up to a highly successful trade convention. 
Well, let's make room for one more — the Atlas Dist. post-Expo gather- 
ing held at Atlas' Cincinnati facilities, which drew a total attendance 
of 375, among which were 115 operators! In addition, there were about 
24 factory representatives on hand to lend their assistance and sup- 
port. A full lineup of the new equipment featured at Expo was on 
display as an accommodation for those ops who were unable to make 
the trip to Nashville as well as for those who attended the convention 
and wanted to take a closer look. 

Atlas provided a full-course meal of steaks and chicken (grilled 
outdoors to your taste); along with about 56 door prizes including 20" 
Magnavox TVs, Magnavox VCR units, CD home players, speakers, 
2-piece cue sticks, cameras and other items. 

The big first prize was a 50" Mitsubishi TV which went to Tommy 
Thompson of Tora Music Co. As noted by branch manager Jerry 
Grotjan, 'The operators who came out for our affair were in a very 
festive, upbeat mood — ready to look at all of the equipment and make 
their purchases. They asked a lot of questions. ..commented on the food 
and refreshments that were delicious and plentiful. ..and described our 
open house as a 'mini AMOA show and even better!"' 

Pictured in the accompanying photos are; (Photo 1) Atlas team 
members including branch manager Jerry Grotjean, Gail Loukinas, 
Tana Campbell, Randy Ceeco, Julie Higgins, Tana Chapman and 
Teresa lorf ida; (photo 2) a group shot of some of the manufacturer reps 
in attendance; and (photo 3) a shot of the tables and guests (with some 
of the decorations visible) who came out to enjoy this event!
