The Roy Wood list

David Hughes "D Hughes Lanarkshire"
 
Shazam
Shazam
"Side 1 of Wood songs, Side 2 of covers, it's all great. There's rollicking pop majesty, sublime acoustic work-outs, mad sitar drones, fabulous vocals lead and back, haunting yearning, etc, etc,etc."
Wizzard Brew
Wizzard Brew
"Sonic masterpiece. Avante-garde white noise every-instrument-under-the sun collection of rock & rollish pieces, dominated by percussion, cellos, electronic saxes and guitar. No singles, originally!"
Mustard... Plus
Mustard... Plus
"Almost too mad a mix--motown, Andrews Sisters, metal, beach boys, classical, and bagpipes. Sad Songs, The Song, Interlude, Rain On Everyone: these are wonderful."
Message From The Country
Message From The Country
"Wonderfully entertaining mixture of brass, bass, woodwind, rhythm. Comedy, beauty, melody, it's all there."
Looking on (remastered)
Looking on (remastered)
"Underestimated classic, not just 'heavy rock'. Lynne tracks weak. Feel Too Good: double-tracked drums, fine bar piano, thrilling horn break-a stomping Move classic. LookingOn--haunting and  beautiful."
Boulders
Boulders
"Strangely wistful, eclectic, melodic record of many highlights (and the first LP I ever bought!). Miss Clark will break your heart."
The Electric Light Orchestra
The Electric Light Orchestra
"Much criticised LP has many moments of dark sonic beauty--brilliantly scratchy cello work, keening hunting horns, old piano, acoustic guitars and mournful oboe. Lynne's 10538 the show-stealer tho!"
Introducing Eddy and the Falcons... Plus
Introducing Eddy and the Falcons... Plus
"Loving homage to 50s rock and pop, plus the last great Wizzard single, the swooning 'Story of my Love'. Bonus tracks include their best single Rock & Roll Winter."
The Move
The Move
"Re-issue has 29 tracks including cosmic pop wonders Fire Brigade and I Can Hear The Grass Grow; full of singles and potential singles, and a myriad of mini-marvels. Wonderful."
Main Street
Main Street
"A warm, warming variety of pop rock jazziness, full of variety and joy: title track a pure masterpiece of melody."
On The Road Again
On The Road Again
"Woody in great form in late 70s: funny, melodic and lovable, including pop classics Hands on Wheel and Rainbow's End as well as stompers, jigs and singalongs--fab."
Annie in Wonderland
Annie in Wonderland
"In 76 Roy produced, co-wrote and played on girlfriend's record; her pure clean voice not to all tastes, but always an interesting eclectic record, including wondrous pop R&A duet 'never believed'."
Super Active Wizzo
Super Active Wizzo
"Their lost 77 TV showcase was astounding; this never released the potential, as good songs (all better live) get dulled in a poor production--great riffs simmer throughout."
Beyond The Move - 1973-2003
Beyond The Move - 1973-2003
"Roy writes and produces about half: good entertainment, and Hazel Eyes is one of Woody's most mesmeric classics."

"Poor shame, the only Woody record not worth having."
