Robert Weil man makes his
debut as a producer with Thy
Anderson Tapes and this fact is
very evident from the results.
Although he has some good
ideas behind the film, Weit man
Dyan Cannon urges Sean
Conneiy (Duke Anderson) to
tell her more of his plan lo rob
an entire New York City
apartment building in The
Anderson Tapes.

This has become an age that
is deeply concerned with
establishing "roots." We find
young white blues artists
working with the black men
who began the sound.

artists such as Robert Johnson
and Bessie Smith are enjoying a

It seemed as if he is trying
lo poke fun at the police ol

general, and that he was

about wire tapping but it was
never decided what those
comments should be.
All hough this show has
many rough spots that should
have been worked out, one
constantly stands in the way. It
is impossible to understand
what is being said in
three-fourths of the show. Part
of the time this technique
could have been used for an
advantage, but when all of the
important lines explaining the
plot and plans are lost to
muffled voices, it becomes very

ability to understand what
they were saying might have
added another dimension.
When the police entered the
scene, beginning with a
telephone call, the pace and
interest in the show increased
greatly. This portion of the
show was better planned and
had something to say.
The plot is still a series of
questions. True, it is the story
of Duke Anderson's attempt to
rob an entire apartment
building, ii many things
throughout its development,
such as the surveillance on
Duke, were left with no
ending. It really had no large
significance in the eventual

lacks some polish. There are
too many places where the
faces are dark and the film is
out of focus. The soundtrack is
exciting, even though it came
in too loud over the actor's
lines and sounded like part of

In general. The Anderson

interesting comments on

some amusing and exciting
scenes, but it is definately not
a movie which will be listed
among the classics.

Into this void steps the New
Riders of the Purple Sage, the
bastard offspring of the
Grateful Dead with an album
of the same name. After a year
of touring with the Head, they
have released an album which
may help to establish country
music in its own right alongside
While there is no twangy

most part is purer country than
sjy the country rock of Neil
And it is nice. From the
pleasurable, excitable nonsense
of "Henry" to the plaintive
wail of a lonesome rock star in
"Portland Women" the record
is entirely listenablc. Jerry
Garcia steps in from the
Grateful Dead to put down
some of the nicest steel guitar
work imaginable. Mickey Hart
from the Dead and Spencer
Dryden, ex-Airplane, do a fine
job with percussion.
But, the man who sparkles
is John "Marmaduke" Dawson,
whose voice will flatten back
your ears until they pull a grin
onto yore face.
The New Riders don't have
a perfect first album-but the,
the flaws themselves are almost
necessary, and it probably
won't become a Top 20 selling
album. But it will make a nice
addition to anyone's record
collection. It's nice for those
laid-back 1 all afternoons.
In fact, I think I'll put on
Side 2 again-hook my thumbs
