Reviewer not "With If"

Reviewer not "With If"

Dear Sirs,

I am amazed that your record reviewer, Mr P.F. O'Dea is so "with it" that he does not know that the Stone The Crows album is titled Ontinuous Performance and that the English sleeve was in fact a single cover like the New Zealand version, not a "fold out".

Constructively critical record reviews are welcomed but Mr O'Dea's ignorance of die facts sometimes makes his reviews "ham fisted", which fools no one, except perhaps Mr O'Dea himself.

Referring to the review of Loggins &- Messina, I would advise your readers that whilst Mr O'Dea may personally prefer New Riders Of The Purple Sage to Loggins & Messina (and that indeed is my own personal preference), the record buying public of New Zealand have shown a marked preference for Loggins & Messina (in line with a wordwide trend).

We at Phonogram feel both groups are musically excellent and deserving of the high praise received from record reviews both here and overseas (all of whom I am sure would know that the Stone The Crows album is titled Ontisuovs Performance).

Yours sincerely,

J.A. McCready,

General Manager Phonogram Records LTD
