45 RPM Record Sales Increase

By RORY O’wNNOR

Surpns' ing fact: 45 rpm
record sales have increased.
The only conceivable reason
for this is that albums are not
being turned out as fast as
they used to be and when
they do finally hit the stores,
songs are lacking from them.
This last point is not usually
the case, although many
people have been disappointed
because Procol Hamm's
“Homburg” is not included on
their one and only LP and
because “Pictures of Lily” is
not on the Who’s latest
album.

But the Who never seem to
know what they're going to do
anyway. “The Who Sell Out,”
their most recent but certain-
ly not their best effort, was
originally going to be called
“The Who’s Greatest Flops,”
and was going to include all
their songs that fired in Eng-
land two and tree years ago
but never made it across the
Atlantic. They wanted to let
American fans know what
they were doing in the early
days, but it looks like they
never will.

“Happy Jack” is a much
better album than this new
one, but like “Happy Jack,"
it will keep the copycats busy
for the next few years. In be-
tween every song on the first
side is a different little ditty
which has been taken from a
London radio station. Little
quips like “more music, more
music, more music” and “It’s
smooth sailing with radio
London” take up the boring 4
seconds of silence that comes
between songs on albums.

As for the songs them-
selves, they take a great deal
of listening to before one can
say he likes them. “I Can See
for Miles” is the only familiar
song on the album; the rest
are new. Nothing is really
outstanding.

The saving grace of the LP
is the jacket. Brilliantly con-
ceived, it does not tell what
songs are on the album. You
haVe to buy it to find out, and
the designers have made sure
to arouse people’s curiosity
sufficiently enough to make
them look twice. On the front
cover is a huge picture of
bare-torsoed Pete Townshend
shoving a gigantic container
of “Odorono” deodorant into
his armpit with a caption say-
ing “. . . wiping out the stale
smell of excess with the sweet
smell of success.” Lead sing-
er Roger Dalty is also pic-
tured on the front cover, im-

a friends have matched hack into towa again. The Beatles have come up

with a doubleheader -- HELLO. GOODBYE ant! I new LP which is a snesh.too. This single
was done while the hm were hpsy filming their television movie. “Magical Mystery Tour".
Both the single and .LP pomt up the difference between USA lid on the eontinent.the
soundtracl; from the movie was released on a pair of 7-inch.45 RPM EP (extended play) re-
cords. which are much more popular in Europe and cheaper than LP’s. In this country. the
somdtrack on the LP is backed up and filled out with a number of songs previously released

as singles. including HELLO, GOODBYE. Today's song. which zoomed q) the charts in no
time. was written by Lennon and MacCartney. It has the same sort of uetty. repetitious lyric
that ALF, YOU NEED IS LOVE has. and a soft rock heat. Definitely a well-deserved winner.
