De dum De Dum De Dum,
This review is from: Roy Wood Singles (Audio CD)
Sometimes I think it's criminal that Roy Wood is so often overlooked. The bloke was an absolute master in capturing what was appealing to the discerning ear at the time. Whether it be Phil Spector-like productions, visual imagery, Beach Boy harmonys or the seemingly obligatory 'De dum De Dum De Dum' part in most of the Wizzard tunes.
Haven't got enough good things to say about this collection. It's not only the Beatles who had the kahunas to write such imaginative stuff coupled with some quality chord progressions. Throw in one of the 60's finest middle-eights from Fire Brigade, and it's perfect pop.
God bless ya Woody mate!
