You see, primarily I listen to metal. I'm talking Morbid Angel, Cradle of Filth, Opeth...... But at the end of a long day or when the mood takes you there's nothing I like better than sticking this (or any other Wurzels CDs) in the stereo and having a good drink or two (or three, or four.... 5...6...7 etc. And Zider at that!).
It really blows your troubles away and exercises the ability to laugh and be exceedingly happy! I would DEFINETLY recommend this! The classics are endless from "Combine Harvester" (Brand New Key), "Drink up thy Zider", and "My Threshing machine"! Obviously there wasn't room for all the classics as it is missing "My Somerset Crumpet Horn" and "Look at 'ee Lookin' at I" but it has its fair share and is still a proper job!
Oooh aah!! More people should indeed listen to The Wurzels! Try it, you might like it!

Format: Audio CD
Never meant to be taken seriously, the Wurzels have nevertheless proved their longevity by keeping themselves busy making music over a period of more than forty years. For much of the time, they have been content to play local venues in Bristol and Somerset, but they have made an impact nationally (with a British number one hit) and internationally (with the same song becoming a Canadian number one hit). They actually scored hits with five different songs in the British charts. A re-mix of their biggest hit also charted. Wurzel music is difficult to classify. British stores such as HMV and Zavvi generally put it on the easy listening shelves, but I would say that the main influence is folk. The Wurzels like to call their music Scrumpy and Western, so perhaps they think their music should sit on the country music shelves next to Tammy Wynette's albums. You must make up your own mind what classification you file their music under, if you feel the need to classify it.

The Wurzels began their long musical career in 1966, with Adam John (Adge) Cutler as their leader. Under his leadership, they built a loyal local following in the Bristol and Somerset area and making some impact further afield. They scored a minor British hit (Drink up thy cider) in 1967, which helped the associated album (Adge Cutler and the Wurzels) into the British album charts. They continued to perform in their local area but seemed either unable or unwilling to make any further impact nationally. Tragedy struck when Adge Cutler was killed in a road accident while driving home one night in 1974. This forced the remaining Wurzels to consider their future. They stayed together but made some adjustments.

A must have album for anyone who's ever enjoyed a night in a proper 'local' zummerzet pub. Every weekend this gets chucked on in our local and we all raise a mug of cloudy scrump to this fine bunch of merry men and have a sing song. If on the other hand you don't have a local pub full of red-faced zider zupperz get a couple gallons of cider-u-can-chew-on, drag the barbie out, get your mates round and do it the 'Wurzel' way...
The weekend just wouldn't be the same without it.. Perfick!!

They are excellent fun songs that I came to know through my cousins during my stay in England. I even saw the wurzels live in herefordshire. When I returned I found my mum used to go to dances where the wurzels played. So it's been a must find album. It brings back soo many memories of Young farmers.

After searching Boot fairs, Charity Shops and Jumble Sales for the works of Adge Cutler and the Wurzels, EMI finally came to their senses and released this album. I hope it is not too long before they place more of the Wurzels (and Adge)on disc for all the genuine fans throughout the world to hear..

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As an Essex Man myself (and an Essex Man, moreover, with a top drawer full of top-drawer ladies' size 18 tops AND drawers at my disposal), I really should know better than to subscribe to any stereotypes whatsoever. All the same, after just a short time spent in the company of this compilation, it's almost impossible not to imagine the average Somerset resident as being anything other than a cider-supping, pitchfork-carrying, smock-modelling, grass-chewing, combine-harvesting, haystack-cavorting, lusty, dusty, dung-spreader.

And that's just the ladies.

No? Oh well, that must just be me then.

I hasten to add, that the ease with which such an image gets into the head of someone like me (where in my case, let's face it, it's probably going to find itself being run over pretty sharpish by a tumbleweed) is down to the creativity and good humour of 'The Wurzels' and their founder, Adge Cutler.

This 25-track CD (and accompanying MP3 download) is a highly entertaining listening experience and the sleeve notes that grace this particular collection do a sterling job of providing just the right amount of background knowledge on Adge and his band to set the musical scene for those - like me - who are not already up to speed on the subject of 'Scrumpy & Western'.

It looks like I accidentally lucked out with my purchase of this compilation over any other, since it does feature the work of the late, great, Mr Cutler: a man without whom there would evidently be no 'Wurzels' today.
