LARGEST CHRISTMAS SELECTION OF COLOR m SlfcKfcU ffl THEATERS M from 69850 I FLOOR MODEL STEREO FROM $16950 IN THE WEST! COLOR TV from jr $25990 eminently forgettable. Granted that they were cleverly produced by Jimmy Miller (of Traffic and "Beggars Banquet" renown), that they are trendilj modish in the usual British tradition, that they are all competent or better on their instruments, and that their lead singer occasionally accomplishes a credible interpretation of Stevie Win-wood's interpretation of American r 'n' b artists, the Spookies write and play a rather nondescript and sterile brand of heavy ish rock that first impresses as. dull and becomes less absorbing with each additional listening. JOHN MENDELSOHN The Stooges. Elektra EKS 74051. Had I not had the unpleasant experience of bearing the MC5's "Kick Out the James" several months ago, I could say that "The Stooges" was the worst roSk album of the year. It's unquestionably the second worst, featuring as it does seven whiny, adolescently repulsive and barely distinguishable street-punk anthems and hypnoticallv -boring 10-minute chant, "We Will Fall." J. M. Recollections. Judy Collins. Elektra EKS 74055. This album could just as easily have been titled "The Best of Judy Collins Volume One" since it contains 11 of her "most requested" recordings from her early albums. The immensely pleasant album includes such songs as "Pack Up Your Sorrows," "Early Morning Rain," "The Last Thing on My Mind" and "Mr. Tambourine Man." The recordings, taken from her "folk" period, contrast sharply with the material on her recent albums. These folk-oriented songs by Dylan, Lightfoot and others are more geared to emotion than the intellectually oriented songs of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Miss Collins. It is a tribute to Miss Collins that she can interpret both types of mateil so welL both types of material so well. ROBERT HILBURN Spooky Two. Spooky Tooth. A&M SP 4194. This is quite representative of the latest albums by unfamiliar British rock groups (in which category Free, Taste and Junior's Eyes might be placed), which is to say that it's TWO LARGE WALNUT REMOTE SPEAKER ENCLOSURES INCLUDED FREE! r Huge sound system in this special value Magnavox'Stereo.
