Wood, Roy - Boulders Boulders
Pop New - LP UA-LA168-F United Artists
Sealed 1973 Textured Gatefold Original, Cut Corner. “An Intricate, Deliberately Idiosyncratic Record, Assembled Piece By Piece, Boulders Perfectly Captures Roy Wood's Peculiar Genius, More So Than Anything Else He Recorded. All Of His Obsessions Are Here -- Classical Music, Psychedelia, Pre-Beatles Pop, Pastoral Folk Ballads, Absurdist Humor, Studio Trickery, And Good Old-Fashioned Rock & Roll -- Assembled In A Gracefully Eccentric Fashion. He Wrote Tuneful, Accessible Songs, But Indulged His Passions And Weird Ideas, So Even The Loveliest Melodies And Catchiest Hooks Are Dressed In Colorful, Odd Arrangements. The Marvelous Thing Is, These Arrangements Never Sound Self-Consciously Weird - It's The Sound Of Wood's Music In Full Bloom. Never Before And Never Again Did His Quirks Sound So Charming, Even Thrilling, As They Do On Boulders. As Soon As "Songs Of Praise" Reaches Its Chorus, A Choir Of Sped-Up, Multi-Tracked Roys Kick In, Sending It Into The Stratosphere. All Nine Tunes Unwind In A Similar Fashion, Each Blessed With Delightfully Unpredictable Twists. It May Take Several Spins To Realize That The Percussion On "Wake Up" Is The Sound Of Roy Slapping A Bowl Of Water. Boulders Is A Sonic Mosaic -- You Can Choose To Wonder At The Little Details Or Gaze At The Glorious Whole, Enjoying The Shape It Forms. Wood Has An Unerring Knack For Melodies, Whether They're In Folk Ballads, Sweet Pop Or Old-Fashioned Rock & Rollers, Yet His Brilliance Is How He Turns The Hooks 180 Degrees Until They're Gloriously Out Of Sync With His Influences And Peers. Boulders Still Sounds Wonderfully Out Of Time And It's Easy To Argue That It's The Peak Of His Career.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details

Wood, Roy - Mustard Mustard
Pop New - LP UA-LA575-G United Artists
Sealed 1976 Gatefold Original, Tiny Cut Corner. “Unlike Boulders, Mustard Is Designed As A Full-Fledged Album Instead Of A Collection Of Pop Vignettes. Outside Of Wood's Love For Brian Wilson There's No Concept, Yet It Flows Smoothly And Attractively, Since Each Song Sounds Like An Epic Pop Extravaganza In Miniature. In A Typically Perverse Turn, Wood Opens The Record With A Scratchy Parody Of The Andrews Sisters, Tackling The Harmonies With Sped-Up Vocal Tapes, But As Soon As "Any Old Time Will Do" Kicks Off, It's Clear That This Is A Shining, Glittering Pop Record. There Isn't Much Of His Signature Absurdist Humor Or Quirky Studio Effects, Apart From The Jaw-Dropping "You Sure Got It Now," A Masterwork That Wood Claims "Sounds Like The Andrews Sisters Backed By John Mayall," Yet It Isn't Missed Since The Studiocraft On Mustard Is Quite Alluring. Where Boulders Felt Homemade, Almost Pastoral, Mustard Is Unabashedly Grand, Bolstered By Endlessly Layered Harmonies, Chiming Keyboards, And Cavernous Productions. The Beach Boys Influences Shine Brightly On "Why Does A Pretty Girl Sing Those Sad Songs" And "Look Thru' The Eyes Of A Fool," And Are Inescapable On The Gorgeous Ballad "The Rain Came Down On Everything." Wood Never Really Rocks Out Until The Multi-Segmented Closer, "Get On Down Home" And Even If It's The One Misstep, It Hardly Detracts From The Pop Wonders That Precede It. Mustard Might Not Equal The Brilliantly Maverick Boulders, Yet It's Easily One Of The Best, Most Cohesive Records Wood Ever Made And One Of The Few To Capture Him As A (Relatively) Focused Pop Craftsman.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
