I have always been a big Wurzels fan since hearing 'Combined Harvester' & 'Cider Drinker' many years ago, just recently I decided to purchase all Wurzels works on CD, which is why I bought this disc, the disc is great, typical Worzels magic, but, I was very dissapointed to find this 'Copy Controlled' thing on the disc, I strongly object to this, on the grounds that I wish to keep all my music in my 'Private Library', i.e. Windows Media Player, on my laptop PC, I do not tell EMI what they can and can't do with the money I paid for this disc, this is a one off for me, I WILL NOT purchase any more discs with this 'copy controll', just out of principal.

Everyone remembers where they were when President Kennedy and John Lennon were assassinated, and I remember exactly where I was when the tragic death of Adge Cutler, on 3rd May 1974 was announced. This is a wonderful collection of some of Adge's performances with The Wurzels and I hope that more of them will be reissued on CD so that I can retire my LP collection!

I've only been introduced to the Wurzels this year, I can't believe I nearly missed some very good stuff! This CD is a bit corny but in a very nice way. Perfect CD for a "cheer-me-up" music. The superbly dodgy lyrics are really good, mark of a genius! LOL! Can't wait to get more Wurzel music!!!

How great is this album?! Out of all the Wurzels back catalogue this is the first I would have chosen for CD release. It's one of the best. Me and my brother are huge Wurzels fans but both prefer the Adge Cutler era to the modern Wurzels - before they started doing parodies after Adge died. Listen to this and you will realise what a great song writer Adge was. EMI please release more Wurzels on CD!!

Well, what can I say, except this has to be one of THE albums for any Wurzel fan. Recorded at the Webbington Country Club (sounds a bit posh eh!) with all the atmosphere and background sounds associated with a live recording, it's a classic. It's one of them albums you can play, while you're quaffing your favourite cider, be it Strongbow or summat similar, and sing along with if it takes your fancy. I gives it a 'leven out of ten! Well done EMI!

i am so pleased that they have digitally mastered this record and made it inot a cd. I really wanted 2Thees gotn wer thee casnt backn hasnt2 and I just couldn't get a recording. When the wurzels were down in Paignton a few years ago i asked them to sing it and they said It was Adges song (have to confess that i first heard it sung by adge cutler at a Barn dance in 1971.) So am treally pleased i now have a copy of it.

Sadly only one of Adge Cutler & The Wurzels albums have made it onto CD, and this is it; on a more positive note - it is a cracker!

"Cutler of the West" is the third Adge Cutler & The Wurzels album, recorded live at the famous Webbington Country Club in Somerset in 1968. It is a superb record of a man (and his band) at the peak of his performance.

As usual, the album includes some of Adge's humour and banter between songs, to give listeners to the album the impression of being there at a live show. The album features more compositions by other writers but nonetheless includes some of Adge's classics, notably "Thee's Got'n Where Thee Cassn't Back'n, Hassn't?" and Adge's Rock 'n' Roll number "Up The Clump".

The addition of Tommy Banner (still with the band today) and Henry Davies to The Wurzels line-up adds a new dimension to the band's sound. This is especially seen on "In The Haymaking Time" where we have Tommy on accordion and some nice tinkley piano (which I suspect may have been add in the studio later!), while Henry's upright bass is bowed for the sad finale; while "A Pub With No Beer" sees Tommy on piano and Henry on violin.

All in all this is a great example of Scrumpy & Western music performed live in the heart of Somerset to a crowd who are obviously enjoying themselves almost as much as the band. They just don't make albums like this any more!!!

For years I was a fan of the Wurzels on principle - you tend to miss the rounded West Country vowels when you live on the other side of the world. Enjoyed The Finest 'Arvest, too.

But according to the experts, this made me a bit of a Philistine: "You should have 'eard the Wurzels when Adge Cutler was the frontman - that's how they orter sound!" I was told.

So when I'd saved up enough pennies, I invested in a copy of Cutler of the West, and I suppose I'm still a bit of a Philistine.

It sounds all right - but it didn't make the impression that I'd been led to expect.

The first thing I noticed was a sticker on the case saying that the CD is Copy Controlled. That doesn't worry me, but it does sound a bit uncharitable.

The second thing was that because of the way the tracks are arranged, you can only really play them in the order they are laid out - otherwise you end up with a heap of introductions that go nowhere. So it's a bit like going back to the days of the LP.

The third thing was that three of the items listed as Drink Up Thy Zider ('Play on', 'Play off' etc) is simply an electronic fanfare and announcement. This effectively reduces the number of tracks to twelve, and we don't get to listen to Drink Up Thy Zider after all - shame really.

And the last thing was the inclusion of A Pub With No Beer - which simply doesn't sound right to me when transplanted from the Southern Hemisphere.

But no doubt it will grow on me - I orta have a few ziders first, p'raps...
