GB Tuesday. Oct. 2.1979 Philadelphia inquirer Little River Band cdmes back, with new and better beat By Edgar Koshatka S(tl U TH inquirer It has been nine months since the Little River Band's last area appearance, and within that time, it has changed its entire rhythm section. Such maneuvers within a group that is so eminently rhythmic and musically coordinated could easily spell musical disaster, but the band's Sunday appearance at the Academy of Music found that the musicians were more assured than ever. Usually, the listener at a pop music event hears a sound that does not approach in quality the recordings made by the artist or group. The Little River Band, from Australia, is an exception. The group has the ability to use a concert hall like a recording studio. Their acoustical artistry in live sound is almost unrivaled among present-day electric bands. The Little River Band's regular drummer Derek Pellicci has returned, recovered from burns in an accident; former bassist George McArdle has been replaced by Barry Sullivan, and a new keyboard player has joined the ranks. The band has absorbed all of the changes not only without a blink, but also with improved sound. The presentation is, as it has been for some time, a nonstop, no-gimmick, song-oriented affair; it seems hard to believe that any one band could pen so many high quality songs 'Legacy's' legacy: More and more gore in just a few years. The Little River Band's musicians have highly developed pop-music sensibilities. Versatility is another strong point; the group seems equally at home with ballads, rock or semi-disco rhythms. From the oldest tunes, such as "It's a Long Way There" or "Happy Anniversai," to such new songs as "Hard Life," "Reminiscing" and "Lady." the septet left its fans wanting for nothing. Opening artist Carlene Carter appears to be trying just a bit too hard to imitate Linda Ronstadt. She styles her hair as Ms. Ronstadt does, moves like her, dresses like her and even has a few tunes that sound like the popular singer's hits. Ms. Carter, a member of the famous country music Carter family, is a good singer and she has considerable stage savvy. Although she has turned away from the music she was raised on. she is not yet completely comfortable as a high-voltage rocker. rT0NITEAT8P.M. wnnnv i 11 & GUTHRIE HAYS ft FLAYERS THIATRE 1714 Ootoncay Stt-Mt TICKETS & INFORMATION 546-7254 CHARGIT 5-8051 16J MKON!

He is called upon to do a little vocalizing, however, when the music mogul he plays in this occult horror film chokes to death on a chicken bone. Daltrey's choking scene is performed approximately in the key of C. One's first impulse is to suspect that he is introducing a new music form like "chicken rock," for example. But no. The people who have bestowed "The Legacy" upon us are using the chicken bone emergency to set the stage for the next round of novel gore: An explicit and futile tracheotomy. Gratuitous gore is something "The Legacy" relies on heavily, especially in the later going, after its efforts to build suspense and a sense of dread have met with only modest success. The film, directed by Richard Marquand from a committee script by Jimmy Sangster, Patrick Tilley and Paul Wheeler, is set on a beautiful English country estate. Katherine Ross and Paul Elliott play an American couple who are brought to the manor house by its mysterious owner, ostensibly for a brief rest after their motorcycle crashes. After their arrival, they are joined by five guests (including Daltrey), who are introduced as business associates of the owner. Miss Ross and Elliott soon perceive that something very strange is happening here, especially when the guests start dying horribly and no one seems to Want to let them leave. They do escape in the owner's Rolls Royce at one point, only to find that all the roads they Namath plays a photographer Associated Press HOLLYWOOD Joe Namath, Judd Hirsch and Jack Albertson star in the NBC movie "Marriage Is Alive and Well." Namath plays a wedding photographer, who gets a close-up look at the insitution of marriage. Hirsch stars as an oft-married writer seeking to reconcile with the woman he married and divorced twice. Albertson plays a famous, aging comedian determined to wed his young secretary. Russ Mayberry is directing for Lorimar Productions from a screenplay by Les Kalcheim. take lead back to the manor house. They then trudge, defeated, back into the house for the occult and gory finale. "The Legacy" is, in many ways, a well crafted, interesting horror film. It develops too slowly, however, and the sense of dread and suspense it might have engendered is diminished by the rather passive performances by Miss Ross and Elliott, who seem to sleepwalk through much of it.
