Wizzard - Wizzard Brew (1973)

Warped, psychedelic, art-damaged early glam from a group founded by Roy Wood (of ELO and the lesser-known but also great The Move.) By the time a raw, bleating sax solo closes out "You Can Dance the Rock 'n' Roll", you're either 100% sold, or you have poor taste in music.

Track listing:
1. You Can Dance the Rock 'n' Roll
2. Meet Me at the Jailhouse
3. Jolly Cup of Tea
4. Buffalo Station - Get on Down to Memphis
5. Gotta Crush (About You)
6. Wear a Fast Gun

Got me runnin'

  1. Ooh, thanks for this one! I recently picked up a copy of the the Move albums Looking On and Message From The Country and have been enjoying them a lot. It's easy and interesting to hear the difference between the Roy Wood songs and the Jeff Lynne songs.

  2. i am waiting for more of that 'smooth as dave chapelle's ball' music (aka Cortex 6)

  3. Roy Wood is one of these criminally under-appreciated musical geniuses that should have been afforded waaaay more credit that he has been given to date. The Move were incredible (especially Looking On album) and then Wizzard were just so clever.
