MGE TWO (AKK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER SO. 1951 By RICHARD KLEINER, NKA Staff Correspondent New York —(NBA)— They call them "small combos," but dont let that objective fool you. Some of these two and three-piece outfits ' are small in number only. In a business sense, they're big time. Movty Nevlns, one of the Three Suns, was telling about the financial operations of this group. The Three Suns are one of the best small com- bes around— they've made about 20 albums for RCA, and one record they made five months ago, "Under Paris Skies" and "Dont Tnke Your Loving From Me," is still hot. There are, naturally, three men In the Three Suns. Morty Nevins is the accordionist, brcth-r Al plays guitar, and cousin Arlle Dunn is the organist. But those Three Suns have 10 satellites—a payroll of 10 people. They employ a press a^ent, engineer, tr'-c'; driver, two r.rr.-ngers, a per-j sonal manager, lawyer, accountant. I secretary, and somebody else Morty j co"ldn't remember. i When they go on the road, they ; tr':e "xSOO.OOO worth of equipment i with them. There is, first, their own j truck. Inside are two organs, a special Steinway, three guitars,: three accordlans. six loudspeakers, | five microphone systems, thrlr complete music library and a costume WPfdrobe. Morty. who was relaxing in a cowboy shirt and cowboy boots between tape sessioa*. says each Sun is responsible for a specific phase of the , business. He handles all publicity, Al takes care of actual business details, and Artie is in charge of material. •"We're R business," says Morty, "just like a grocery store." THE POULAR SIDE: Three big battles underway, to see which artist gets the top seller on three good songs. "Stranger in Paradise" has been cut by Gordon MacRae. Tony j Bennett and the Pour Aces; "Heart of My Heart" by the Four Aces, Frankie Laine and a trio of Don Cornell, Alan Dale and Johnny Desmond; and "Changing Partners" by Patti Page and Kay Starr. These are the roughest fights of the year in the record world. I like, respectively, the Bennett, Cornell-Dalc-Des- rnond and Page records. What's your pick? ON THE CLASSICS: To the treasury of great recorded dramas, RCA Victor has added a magnificent performance of "Romeo and Juliet," performed by the old Vic company and recorded in London in 1B52 with fidelity to the atmosphere of that Godfrey's Mofher Hears Own Song TORONTO, Onl. MV-Arthur Godfrey's 75-year-old mother heard the 90-piece Toronto Symphony give the first public performance of her composition "Marine Boys March." White-haired Mrs. Kathryn Godfrey stood in the first balcony and blew kisses to conductor Andre Kostelanetz after her brief work was warmly applauded by a crowd of '.500.. TTie mother of the American television and radio star said she had written the march several years ago bul it never had been played in public before. Friends said she had sent It and other original scores to Kostetlanelz after theyj became acquainted aboard ship i some years ago. Describing the march as a "loud, rousing piece," the conductor said. "It's got a catchy tune and Is really very good." I historic theatre. Clair.c Bloom is I Juliet — remember her in Charlie Chaplin's "Limelight"? . . . Colum- i bia has done a fine job transforming Edward R. Murrow's "This I believe" Into recorded form. The philosophies sound even more im- 'prcssive than they read. , DICK'S PICKS SUREFIRE: "Santa Baby" (Eartha Kitt, RCA). SLEEPER: "Baubles.

PCP ALBUMS: "Kiss Me Kale" is out in a new version. This is Thf MGM album from the sound track of the new movie. Knthryn Grayson, Howard Keel and Ann Millnr do a fine job. , . . Paul Wept on has two new albums out )n CfiDitol. "Dream Time Music" ind "Mood Music." Typical dreamy, moody Weston. CLASSICAL: Beethoven's Concerto No. 3 for Piano and Orchestra given a very choice reading by pianist Rudolf Serkln anrt Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelohla Orchestra (Columbia).
