Down the yellow brick road...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"With their brilliant single 'Peter's Birthday', which has been featured on various psych comps over the years, the World of Oz proved themselves to be true veterans of the pop-syke genre.

The group was signed to Deram in 1968 where they recorded three singles (including the aforementioned) and one album ('World of Oz', the one, here, in review). The band also appeared on such British TV shows as 'Beat Club' and 'Colour Me Pop'.

Overall, not much is known about the World of Oz, except that they were landmark musicians and songwriters. Each member was as crucial as the next in creating what would be their sole full-length. It is an amazing album, filled with whimsical tones and at times even haunting lyrics. It is a great departure from adulthood into childhood, and then full circle back into reality.

A must have for any psych collector or pop-syke lover!

Factoids:

1. The album was recorded in Decca studios in West Hampstead.
2. The Moody Blues recorded simultaneously in the underlying studio of the same venue.
3. A thirty-three-piece orchestra played on/for the track 'Muffin Man'.
