5.0 out of 5 stars WHEN I WAS A BOY I HAD A DREAM, 31 Oct. 2015
What a transformation real strings and orchestration can do to someones all time classics. Jeff Lynne should have produced this to give it moire depth and clarity along with Louis Clarke of Hooked on Classics fame who could have improved the arranging. Overall an excellent achievement in having the idea and concept. Not to sure why there had been any need for the Mr B intervention..

5.0 out of 5 stars A WORK OF ART, 4 July 2009
This review is from: Far (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
Ok i admit i am a Jeff Lynne addict and that is why i perchased the album. I could and probably would have totally ignored this masterpiece if i had'nt found out that JL had produced a few songs which has not destracted me from this talented purist.
Like myself i think its about time we woke up and celebrate a master musician, vocalist and composer. Composer being the right word. Yes it is a production compilation of which all have done themselves proud and let Regina's innovations and vocals shine through.
Every song on the album are works of art dare i say musical masterpieces. Shear perfection. Each having a contrasting range of melodies with their own special sense of mortality. Some are delicate `Laughing with', intrigueing and haunting `Genius Next Door'& `Man of a Thousand Faces', joyfull `One More Time with Feeling', agressive `Machine', upbeat `Dance Athem of the 80's'& `Two Birds', commercial `The Calculation', bizarre `Human of the Year',sophisicated and de-stressing `The Sword and the Pen'& `Time is All Around', cute `Folding Chair', Alzheimatic `EET', beautiful with self-belief `Blue Lips', warm hearted `Wallet'.
Not experiencing or having the pleasure of hearing her previous recordings. I will take on board all the comments i have read and believe they have to be respected nad investigated into in the very near future. In the meantime i will live `FAR' away in Reginas ecstatic world of total brilliance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Performer - Rock Legend, 7 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Outstanding Performer (Audio CD)
You may get disillusioned when the first track asks Are You Ready to Rock?
Well, before you answer the question take time out, get your tartan trousers, platform shoes, put make-up on your face and mess up your hair, if you have any that is. Then sit back with your converted hi-fi vacuum cleaner, open a few cans of that Wizzard magic potion and listen to a repertoire of songs from the late 70's and early 80's of a musical maestro, pop genius and rock legend Mr Roy Wood.
All of the tunes here will be well known by the avid follower who will appreciate the remastering of the tracks and a neatly prepared booklet showing photographs portraying his many guises from that era especially the one of Wizzard in Roy's back yard. Every song has a different musical style ranging from Pop, Rockabilly to Jazz-Rock incorporating many of his musical influences. From the Spectorish backings, Beach Boy's harmonies, Hendrix guitar breaks and Zeppelin style drumming.
Roy as ever plays every musical instrument wherever possible including bagpipes and also as a tongue in cheek stab at his old mate Jeff Lynne with On Top of the World. Way Beyond the Rain is a classy ballad with Roy at his best. Rattlesnake Roll is amazing rockabilly, spot the steel guitar on this one. On the Road Again is typical rocking Roy. While the kids give a helping hand on Sing Out the Old..Bring in the New. Which I feel is a perfect ending to a person who deserves his Ivor Novello award for his collection of songs over the years. Here's to the next remaster or a live compilation of Roy's greatest hits....???
