WW' EEKEND i li I The Boston Globe Friday, January 26, 1973 21 Intown Lull ends, beat resumes By Ernie Santosuosso, Globe Staff Following a particularly dormant post-New Year's period, activity on the concert scene will soon resume with a mighty invasion of acts, mos tof them piloted here by the young Sol Hurok of rock, Don Law. That's where the money is and law is wasting no time lining up the top artists in that field. He is making one concession to middle-of-the-road music in booking singer Shirley Bassey at the Orpheum on April 27. Don's productions include Edgar Winter plus James Montgomery Band next Wednesday at the Orpheum (Aquarius), Neil Young on Feb. 8 only at Boston Garden, then Feb.

College in Hennicker, N.H., Lowell Tech's Winter Festival on Sunday night and, of course, to Symphony Hall on Feb. 9-10 in tandem with the toast of San Francisco, Tony Bennett. In answer to the many requests for information concerning the telecast of Elvis Presley's special from Honolulu, the word is that NBC will show it in the United States some time next month. Far Eastern TV viewers caught the Pelvis "live" via satellite on Sunday, Jan.

14. You can now add that part of the world to his huge audience because his show garnered the highest ratings for a television program ever in Asia. The Nippon Television Network, in competition with five other outlets in Japan, announced that the Presley telecast recorded that net- work's highest rating since it began operating 20 years ago. They also went daffy over Elvis in the Philippines where 91.8 percent of the viewing public tuned into the, show. The feeling is that the exact date for the airing in this country will coincide with the simultaneous worldwide release by RCA' records of the soundtrack album, "Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii, Via Satellite," a four-chan- nel (it can also be played in stereo) disc.

Tomorrow night Buddy brings his magic By George McKinnon Globe Staff This weekend there is a movie-going package deal that might jar you out of based outfit, has added the Charles East and Charles West to the handsome Charles Cinema in Charles River Plaza on Cambridge street near Government Center. The two cinemas on the ground floor, nestling under the larger parent Charles Cinema, make a sort of movie triplex.

Last night Walter Reade, head of the organization which also operates the Plaza in Brookline and your jaded January blahs. Today two movie theaters are opening to the public with two fine films, so you RECORDS AU-in-the-f amily music can't go wrong no matter which cinema you decided to inspect. The Walter Reade Orga nization, a New York- More on "The Clockwork Orange." A representative of Warner Bros, reminded me that director Stanley Kubrick made only two "minute adjustments" totalling 15 seconds in order to go from a to an rating. In reel 4 he adjusted only four seconds by eliminating a shot that disturbed the rating board and in reel 9 he substituted 11 seconds in the action. Clint Eastwood is last year's box office champi-' on, according to a poll of movie moneymakers made by the Motion Picture Herald.

John Wayne, the 1971 winner, came in fourth, but that shouldn't bother him because he has placed in the first ten top moneymakers 23 times. Others in the 1972 winners circle were in order, George C. Scott, Gene Hackman, Barbra Streisand, Marlon Brando, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Dustin Hoffman and Goldie Hawn. a number of major New York film "houses, was in town for the gala champagne-reception opening of his expanding Boston chain and he was cheerfully optimistic about the future of movie theaters, despite the sad of Hol-. lywood and the despairing groans from some- sections of the movie industry.

For one of his theaters Reade has the Boston, premiere of the "The of Gamma Rays on Man in the Moon Marigolds," an adaptation of the Off-Broadway hit. Joanne Woodward stars in this drama directed by her husband Paul Newman. The other cinema has a little jewel of a film mainly for specialized tastes Luis Bunuel's "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie." It is hoped that with the new1 movie theaters the general area of the Government Center, which is bustling in the daytime and deserted at night, will receive a further after-dark injection. ous incarnations. On "Heading," one of Roy's own compositions, you can recall in this new arrangement the sensational capacity of this couple to generate romance and warmness of spirit without a track of corn.

So what have we got here? To newcomers, we have a winner of an album, bright and full of joy. Robert Levey. FOLK "Voice of the Eagle" (Vanguard) is a mystic journey through Robbie Basho's view of the American Indian. Basho's tenor is rich, his 6 and 12-string guitarwork vibrant as he tells us of the Hopi creator Taiowa and Tawa the sun. On occasion his poetry speaks most eloquently: "Waiting in the warm golden rain the sweet silent Reign of the Sun to come again Are you ready, my son for to ride the rainbow of his light?" A touch of eastedn mysticism surfaces briefly through use of the mrdangam, a Hindu log drum, but primarily "Voice, of the Eagle" is a sonorous homage to the redman's ancient lore.

Bruce Sylvester JAZZ "Time And Love," Jackie Cain and Roy Krai, (CTI) A minority of jazz lovers in the 1950s kept Jackie and Roy to themselves. The music was lyrical, so easy to take, so original Roy's solid piano work and warm voice; Jackie's vivid vocal range and luscious interpretation of just about any kind of material. They long ago tired of being called the greatest unknown jazz duet and instead have made the most of their thoughtful, independent career by growing in whatever direction their musical instincts pointed them. First, they moved into the "new" music, Beatles, et al; then Roy went to electric piano, they added guitar bass and on this newest of a procession of remarkable albums over the past 20 years, the orchestrations come out of the woodwork. On arrangements of "Time and Love," "Day by Day" from "Godspell," "A Simple Song" from Bernstein's and "Lazy Afternoon," you can feel almost overwhelmed by the size and intention of the sound.

Not unpleasant, you understand, but a shock after the intimacy of the "Jackie and Roy," sound in all previ 'fi MUSIC HALL BOX OFFICE OPEN DMI) uctpt xunoay re 3-i wi k-2 i i i a Ji.i.lf:f- a I BOSTON COMEDIAN Allan Kent continues for another week at Playboy Penthouse.
