CD Reviews

You can dance you rock and roll
Kevin Kunreuther | Dallas TX | 07/28/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This release is a fine intro to the playful imaginative and daring pop of the band Wizzard and its guiding creative center, Roy Wood. This collection features choice nuggets from the band's and its maestro's ouvre such as the absolute kitsch of "Angel Fingers", the sonic blast and roar of the Brian Wilson/Phil Spector-like "See My Baby Jive" and possibly the best rock and roll holiday song ever penned "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" . Also included are some of Roy's solo releases, notably his first solo single, the delightfully quirky hoedown, "When Grandma' Plays The Banjo" and two electropop sides from the eighties, "Down To Zero" and "Green Glass Windows". Selections from early b-sides that explore Wizzzard's jazz leanings and also adventurous selections from their albums "Wizzard's Brew" and "Introducing Eddie And The Falcons" round out this release. Dedicated fans would already have all or most of these recordings, so would find little reason to add this CD to their collections, but would recommend them to purchase CD and offer to friends and others as gifts as a great way of introducing others to the motley musical melange that is Roy Wood and Wizzard."
