** Richard Marx, "Paid Vacation," Capitol. Remember Player? The Sanford/Townsend Band? Well, Richard Marx does, along with, in his better moments, the late-era Raspberries. His fourth album, made with his usual stable of collaborators, is a combination of the sort of pasty rock made by these '70s forebears and some schlocky ballads that are produced prettily enough to be memorable.

Richard Marx has apparently been listening to his critics. At the Greek Theatre on Wednesday, the pabulum-pop rocker had clearly taken measures to stem the disapproval of the elitists who scoff at his art and refuse to take him seriously. His infamous puffy coiffure was fully two inches lower than normal, and all six of his band members--the Hair Club, as he called them--had taller, longer tresses than their leader, doubtlessly to make Marx appear a moderate in the politics of hair.

Pop singer Richard Marx was scheduled to board a plane this morning in Baltimore to fly across the country. Nothing unusual there; pop stars are frequent flyers nonpareil. But before stepping on the MGM Grand jet, Marx was to perform a concert at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport, and by the time he gets home in the San Fernando Valley tonight he will have performed four more shows--at New York's JFK, then in Cleveland, Chicago and finally Burbank.

Rushing About: Capitol recording artist Richard Marx is taking the title of his new album--"Rush-In, Rush-Out, Rush Street Tour"--to heart. Marx will be rushing across the country Nov. 9, performing five concerts in five cities in the course of that one day. Marx and his band will fly into Washington/Baltimore, New York, Cleveland, Chicago and Los Angeles, performing a free live concert at each stop.
