Brought To Ye u By WW Your Kerasotes Theatres Purisfs who have special affection for the famous Neil Simon play on which the series is based may well have criticisms of the video transplant. But television's weekly haJ/f-hour version of "The Odd Couple" has cut out a place of its own, and provides a coastant supply of enjoyable humor. It would almost take a monumental conspiracy, or monumental incompetence by producers, directors, adapters and actors, to make Simon's sublime creations—those two ill-paired characters—fail as a source of delightful comedy. Gnided With Understanding The ABC-TV series not only is in the hands of knowledgeable professionals, but is guided by them with the "astute understanding that video's weekly version of "The Odd Couple" has to take some caldilated liberties to create a life and style of its own. My own feeling is that the series is a success in great part because it finally realized the value of being filmed before a real audience after a start in which it relied on the usual heavy laugh-track technique. I was not particularly enamored of ABC-TV's "The Odd Couple" during its early shakedown period. It seemed to me that a spark was lacking, that almost everything was somehow just missing by a little bit, that there was a little too much shouting, a little too much loudness over-all. And yet you know that the basic subject material was marvelous and proven. And it was fascinating to tune in to see just when [everything would click into place. Of the two characters, Randall's is the odder one, and he; must therefore play it right on the button to keep the series from going off the deep end. In any case, they are two nifty performer's, Randall and Klugman. And the besfr thing you can say about them in ABC-TV's "The Odd Couple" is that they look and act Beck, Bogert and Appice Are New Rock Supergroup Family Visit Tricia Nixon Cox, holding the First Family's dog, King Tamahoe, and Mrs. Richard Nixon, leave Bethesda Naval Medical Center yesterday after paying a visit to President Nixon who is recovering from viral pneumonia.

They have good karma. Rock Music Jeff Beck is one of the three or four best rock guitarists in the world, long hampered by backing musicians who could not keep up with him. Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice ere the rhythm system that made Vanilla Fudge and Cactus work. They are, in the traditional sense of a rock journalism cliche, A "Super- Group." Having been burned too many times by the idea that you can take just about any combination of "Name" performers, plug them in and expect great music to come pouring forth like milk and ftcney in the Promised Land, I approached BBA with skepticism. THE "S U P E R-GROUP" idea started with Cream, in tn the late 60s. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker got together and stormed the rock world like a 6,000-watt hurricane. But few of their imitators enjoyed similar fortunes, which is a nice way of faying they stunk. Beck, Bogert and Appice are the kind of exception that proves the rule. I talked recently with Beck, and mentioned the inevitable comparison with Cream. "It's the same formula, of course," he said, "But the playing influences are totally different — Tim is like an electric rock 'n' roll Motown bassist, and Carmine plays nothing like Ginger and I don't play like Eric. But the instrumentation is the same—the same as Cream and as Jimi Hendrix. "Everyone (in BBA) is conscious of the next person's playing, which is so unusual —you rarely get this kind of give and take. I know I can pull out any rhythm, or any sent of influence, and they can pick up on it." Appice is a flashy drummer, but he has a perfect sense of rhythm, and can maintain an almost machine-like beat (which is a quality rarer than you'd think). As for Bogert, he is simply the best rock bassist in the world. He has no peer when laying down a bass line, and <here is no other bassist in rock who can play a 15-minute solo without losing his audience to boredom. When Beck first started toying with the idea of teaming up with Bogert and Appice a couple of years ago, it wai to have been A quar* tet, with Rod Stewart Up from. But then Beck as sidelined ty an auto accident, Bogert and Appice moved from the Fudge to Cactus, and Stewart joined The Faces, Looking at what Stewart is into now. I doubt if it would have worked out, but the idea of a singer up front is a gocd one still, despite Beck 's vow to retain the three-piece format. THERE IS, however, one thing BBA needs even more than a singer. They desperately need a producer. Their first album, "Beck .Bogeft and Appice" (Epic KE-32148), includes all the licks from their live show, but there is an intensity lacking. The album is a frustrating appetizer to the stage act's ten -course dinner. Though Beck insists he is happy with the album, he is locking for "a good producer —Glyn.Johns, or somewie like that," which bodes well for album two. It must be nice to,start on top— and have nowhere to go but up.
