1982—'80s Sales Slump—(Is. 19)

This vintage issue of MC, at the

pre-dawn of the CD age, explored

the sales slump that was hitting

the record industry. Label execs

cited the overall poor economy,

rather than "home taping," as the

primary culprit. Elsewhere in this

issue of Music Connection we

profiled Jethro Tull frontman Ian

Anderson and classic songwriting

team Barry Mann and Cynthia

Weil, who discussed their 20

years of hits. The issue's club reviews

section spotlighted Burning

Sensations, Levi Dexter and the

Tribe, Lawrence Juber, and the

Long Ryders.

CURB GETS GRAMMY LOVE:

Curb Records founder and CEO

Mike Curb spoke recently at

the Grammy Museum about his

career experiences. Pictured at

the event (l-r): JK Promotions’

Jon Konjoyan; Curb Records’

Carole Curb; Mike Curb; and

RAMP’s Steve Resnik.

GET [JACKSON] TO THE GREEK: Alan Jackson performed

at The Greek Theatre, in Los Angeles, CA recently. The

country superstar was greeted backstage by Nederlander

Concert employees prior to his high-energy show. Pictured

(l-r): Rena Wasserman, Nederlander Concerts, VP of

Operations / Greek Theatre, L.A. General Manager; Alex

Hodges, Nederlander Concerts, CEO; Alan Jackson; Paola

Palazzo, Nederlander Concerts, VP of Talent.

1995—King Crimson—(Is. 8):

Robert Fripp's '90s version of

Crimson presented an awesome

arsenal of players, with drummer

Bill Bruford, Tony Levin and

Adrien Belew on board. Said

Belew of the group, "We're not

a commercial band, but we're

certainly an adventurous one."

This issue also profiled Razor &

Tie Records co-owner Cliff Chenfield,

who'd recently signed artist

Graham Parker. "With other labels,"

he said, "if it didn't happen

for Graham in the first two weeks,

they pulled the plug on him. We're

not working this album as if Graham

is going to be Ace of Base."
