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 :)
