Mick Jagger demonstrates steps Arthur Murray never
taught you. Bill Wyman (foreground) ignores Jagger's
kinetic energy and placidly plays his bass. Keith Richards
kicks out another jam and blocks the line of sight to
drummer Charlie Watts. Mick Taylor (to Jagger's left) is
mother's baby standing in the shadows. Scene comes from

Whether you are young or old, bip or
square, you are sure to be rewarded by
Max Morath at the Turn of the Century
which will be presented on Tuesday
night, March 23 at eight o'clock in
It is a truism in New York theatre
circles that "one-man shows close on
Saturday night." Max Morath changed it
to a falsehood when he made his debut at
the Jan Hus Playhouse in February of
1969. The New York critics, newspaper,
radio and TV, hailed Max as an
entertainer "par excellence."
Clive Barnes of the "New York Times"
said, "Marvelous! Glowingly happy! Max
Morath, a remarkably fine artist, is
offering a wonderful insight into
American popular music entertainment."
"Variety" said, "Loads of fun,
polished, witty, tasteful. The show is
superbly paced, with comic spiels
alternating with the music and never a
" -Beginning in 1954,' Morath spent six
summers as music director and pianist for .
the Imperial Players in the colorful
mining camp of Cripple Creek, Colorado.
During this period, he began to specialize
in ragtime and turn-of-the-century styles
and repertoire. A serious student of the
hit AAcon . .
social history of the United States from
1 890-1920, Morath embarked
particularly on research in the era's
He combed libraries, studied ragtime
piano rolls, borrowed old sheet music,
consulted historical societies, explored
antique shops, rummaged through old
magazines and interviewed survivors of
the ragtime era. The result was a
completely unique act: the showmanship
of a modern entertainer combined with
the repertoire of an old-time vaudeville
performer, accompanied by humorous
commentaries on the music, mores and
social etiquette of a vanished age.
It was in the fall of 1960 that Morath
first gained national attention. He wrote
and performed a series for NET called
"The Ragtime Era," tracing the
development of ragtime, beginnings of
musical comedy and the rise of Tin Pan
Alley. The success of this series led to a
second NET series entitled "Turn of the
Century" in -which Morath presented
social history of the rea as reflected in its
Morath considers college students his
best and most enthusiastic audience. He
explains that students see many parallels
in musical and social history between the
turn of the century and our present day.
Music was then undergoing a great
change, breaking away from the
tear-jerking ballads of the Gay Nineties
("She's More to be Pitied than
Censured") and moving into the new,
syncopated ragtime music. Morath's show
covers this change and the changes that
were taking place in the social structure
of the times. He touches on 'The
shocking trend towards independence of
the American female: trial by jury!
Property rights! Why -some of them even
want the right to vote." Women have
come a long way indeed.
Tickets for Max Morath's performance
are now on sale at the Carolina Union

Admission is $2.25 and $1.75.

was a groovy show, all risht .
"Life" columnist Barry Farrell in
1969 after Woodstock, "but I fear it will
grow groovier in memory, when this
market in our madness leads on to shows
we'd rather not see.
The show "we'd rather not see" has
arrived in "Gimme Shelter," a
documentary about the Rolling Stones
1969 American tour which ended in the
deaths of four people during a disastrous
free concert at Altamount Speedway in
northern California December 6.
The 2 2 -man camera crew, supervised
by directors David and Robert Maysles
and Charlotte Zeverin, captured on film
almost every aspect of the disaster, from
attorney Melvin Belli's manipulations
about a site ("the Stones are doing it for
charity") to the slaying of a black man by
the Hells' Angels as Mick Jagger sings
"Under My Thumb."
Instead of showing the film as a
straight documentary of the Stones' tour
frpm Madison Square Garden to
Altamount, the Maysles installed cameras
outside a studio where they join the
Stones themselves in watching an early
run of the film. Thus, the Stones join
their own audience outside the action,
watching, stunned, as the violence grows.
The central character on the screen,
Jagger is dwarfed as, from the studio, he
watches himself trying to calm down the
crowd. ("Who's fighting and what for?
Why are we fighting? Why are we
fighting?" he asks in a petulant, whining
voice.) His lips purse and unpurse as he
sees Angels swirl into the crowd, creating
what seem to be eddies of violence.
'Every time we get a number,
something happens," Jagger says before
playing "Under My Thumb." "I don't
know what's wrong."
As the song ends, over and over again
Jagger entones into the microphone, "I
pray it's all right. I pray it's all right ..."
Then a swift cut over to the left edge of
the stage, twenty feet away, where more
trouble has broken out. It happens so fast
you don't know what happened. .
"Can we see that again," comes a voice
in the studio.
Back goes the film, first to show the
Hell's Angel stabbing Meredith Hunter,
and then again to see the gun that Hunter
was carrying. The reel continues, showing
the body being taken away, Hunter's girl
"It's so horrible," says Jagger, rising in
dusgust, froin bis, seat.,.,. only, tpbe. frozen--,
by a Maysles camera.. : J
In retrospect, everything that is
included in this incredible movie seems to
be a veiled prophecy of what was to
occur on Saturday.
"For once we're jusi gonna let it
happen, if just for experimental
purposes," expbins one Stones manager
about the lack of planning.
At one point in the negotiations for a
site jagger is told that it's too late to call
the whole thing off; that people are
already corning in from as far away as
"You gotta be kidding," says Jagger.
"You don't understand," replies his
lawyer. "It's like lemmings to the sea out
The violence at Altamont was not
restricted to the Stones' performance, as
trouble broke out during the Jefferson
Airplane's performance. (Jagger treated
the other groups condescendingly
throughout the whole tour, snidely
remarking "Nice to have a chick
occasionally," after Tina Turner came
close to performing fellatio on a Madison
Square Garden microphone and referring
to the Airplane as "Grateful Airplane.")
Marty Balin of the Airplane was
decked when he attempted to stop the
Angels from beating up a black in front
of the stage.
"He was disrespectful to a brother
Ar.gd," explains another Angel to an
enraged Paul Kantner.
("We were' told we were supposed to
sit on the stage and keep peoplr off, and
a little hackif we could," Argel leader
Sonny Barger explained afterwards,
although an Angel named Pete probably
expressed the situation better when he
told an FM station, "When people ask us
to do something, if we decide to do it, it's
done. No matter how far we have got to
go to do it)
Many critics have drawn conpixisor.s
between Altamount and Woodstock, but
Mick Ja?ssr probably sums it up best in
the statement he made for Newsweek
"I think a lot of young people have
started something and we're never going
to finish it," he said. "I think maybe the
kids went too far in their faith in it. They
expected it to be everytking, to express
all they feel and do."
