Here we see (or rather hear) that The Wurzels still have what it takes to play and write some excellent top class jaunty tracks to get yer toes a’tappin’, sit back and relax with a favourite beverage (preferably cider) and enjoy. I can imagine this will be an excellent CD to listen to in the summer months.
2004's ‘A Taste of the West’ is comprised of 12 tracks, mainly old re-done Wurzels classics such as ‘Pill Pill’ and a personal favourite ‘The Charlton Mackrell Jug Band’ and a couple of new’uns like the superb ‘Rock around the A38’ to whet the appetite for some new Wurzels music.
Another top quality slice of light hearted West country folk as the genre label ‘comedy’ that most people give them isn’t good enough as I think they are sooo much more. And as I’ve said in a past review more people should give this stuff a go.
-----------------------------
Now all we need is EMI to release their much needed back catalogue on some nice brand spankin’ new CDs!!
Also if you can find it there’s an excellent Wurzels gem knocking around called ‘I want to be an Eddie Stobart Driver’ CD Single from 1995 by Loose Records. Worth the search if you ask me, it’s more like a little EP :)

The Wurzels went into the Sil Willcox's Charlton Farm Studio in East Somerset and re-recorded a dozen of their favourite old Adge Cutler and The Wurzels songs. The songs are linked by Tommy Banner and Pete Budd's between-song banter so that the whole album becomes a journey around the West Country from North Somerset down to Cornwall and back again. The songs are produced quite differently to the originals, so this makes good listening especially alongside the orginal recordings.

I agree with Gavin Moore's review that it would be nicer if EMI could re-issue all Adge Cutler's original albums rather than just Cutler of the West - and then people could hear all of the orginals as they were originally recorded.

This is a collection of Warzel songs from their beginnings with Adge Cutler but recorded recently. There is at least one I wanted not released elsewhere and they have kept it true to the original. I suspect the the West that the songs depict is long gone but I grew up there and like the Wurzels still support Bristol City. There is a little chat at the beginning of each track but that doesn't seem to matter. Buy it and whack it on your Ipod/mp3 player and it'll give 'ee a right laugh on the way to work or comin' home on the train.

The Wurzels for me are just great, this cd is always on. What makes it better is that without going to Somerset you just get this group anywhere, except as I found on Amazone.
