WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 9. 1996 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAL That Was the Week That Was By The Associated Press 80 years ago: Filming began on "Bonnie and Clyde," a trend-setting film about the unlikely heroes of 1930s bank-robbing team. The movie starred Warren Beatty, who produced the film, and newcomer Faye Dunaway. It was Gene Wilder's first film. 20 years ago: "The Front," starring Zero Mostel and Woody Allen, opened in New York. The film was about the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s, which kept many in the film community from working because of previous political associations. Several people associated with the film, including Mostel and director Martin Ritt, were among those blacklisted. And EMI Records signed the British punk rock band, The Sex Pistols, outbidding Chrysalis, RAK and Polydor. The band recorded "Anarchy In The U.K." The liaison was brief and expensive: two and one-half months at a cost of $60,000. 1O years ago: "The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers" premiered on the Fox Broadcasting Co. network. Guests for the first show were David Lee Roth, Pee- Wee Herman, Cher and Elton John. Rivers, who had been Johnny Carson's permanent guest host on NBC's "Tonight" show, dispensed with a five- minute monologue that had been prepared for the program. And crooner Frank Sinatra said he was selling the house he built 30 years prior on a mountain above Beverly Hills. The asking price was $3 million.-In addition to the requisite swimming pool, the two-bedroom home included a 30-seat movie theater, a two-bedroom guest apartment and maid quarters. Five years ago: Guitarist Jerry Garcia said the Grateful Dead needed to take a six- month break from touring to regain its old enthusiasm. The last time the 26-year-old psychedelic rock band took an extended hiatus was in the mid-1970s. And Martin Scorsese, director of "Raging Bull" and "Taxi Driver," was awarded France's prestigious Order of Arts and Letters. Spoken 10 years ago: "I got a bit obsessive; I became a bit anorexic, I suppose. I was nervous because I had a very, very big part and, to tell you the truth, I didn't know if I could do it." — Actor Gary Oldman, who lost 28 pounds while filming "Sid and Nancy." Oldman starred as doomed punk rocker Sid Vicious, The Sex Pistols' deceased bass guitarist. The R-rated film looked at the bizarre, self-destructive and curiously compelling relationship between Vicious and American groupie Nancy Spungen. Spoken five years ago: "The music is going to have to take some turns. And we're also going to have to construct new enthusiasm for ourselves because we're getting a little burned out." — Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, saying it was time for the band to take a break from touring.

Oslin was never M Jl typically Nashville. With her cabaret electric piano, cynical middle- age lyrics and anti-ingenue looks, she was more like a ,visiting relative — the kind who grew up in the country, then headed to the city as soon as she could put the car in drive. The outsider approach worked well for a ivhile, producing a string of hits such as '"80s Ladies" and "I'll Ahvays Come Back." But when country music boomed in the '90s, Oslin all but disappeared. Maybe it was a long-needed vacation. Just when it seemed her career was history, here she comes with a welcome comeback but perhaps the best of her career. On "My Roots Are Showing," Oslin has raided Nashville's most hard- core song catalog for her material, unearthing all- but-forgotten tunes from ultra-traditional artists such as Jimmy Martin, Wilma Burgess, the Osborne Brothers and Jim,mie Rodgers. But don't expect, twin fiddles or twang. In fact, the end product isn't really country at all. "Roots" is more of an adult-contemporary experiment in opposites. Oslin and co-producer Rick Will (the Divinyls, AC/DC) sound like they are trying to see just how far they can stretch a song from its original incarnation. They turn Martin's bluegrass anthem "Hold Whatcha Got" into an echo-filled rockabilly romp. The Osborne Brothers' "Pathway of Teardrops" becomes soft reggae. Burgess' 1967 hit "Tear Time" is a torch song fit for the Rainbow Room. Oslin takes "Down in the Valley" (yes, the valley so low) and makes it sound like a Janis Joplin standard. The CD is more Randy Newman than Randy Travis. And it's not likely any of these tunes are going to show up on country charts next to Shd j nia Twain. But at 55 — and with quadruple by-' pass surgery and a, highly publicized midlife crisis behind her — Oslin could probably care less. And this time, that's exactly what works.
