• NEW REMASTERED RELEASE OF THE LEGENDARY 1975 ALBUM BY ROY WOOD
• WITH SEVEN RARE BONUS TRACKS
• FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NOTES
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered edition of the legendary 1975 album MUSTARD by ROY WOOD.
After earning success as a performer and songwriter with THE MOVE, THE ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA and WIZZARD, the supremely talented Roy Wood released his second solo album in December 1975. As one might have expected, given the eclectic nature of his previous work, MUSTARD was diverse in style, but was also a masterpiece. Critics in some quarters hailed the record as Wood’s equivalent to the Beach Boys classic album “Pet Sounds” and the eccentric nature of the album certainly drew on this influence, along with pieces that took inspiration from the producer Phil Spector to Led Zeppelin.
Remarkably, Roy Wood not only wrote and produced the album, but also played every instrument featured on the recordings. He was joined by guest vocalists Annie Haslam (of Renaissance) and Phil Everly on the songs ‘The Rain Came Down on Everything’ and ‘Get On Down Home’ respectively.
Unavailable on CD for many years, this welcome Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered and includes seven bonus tracks drawn from singles released between May 1975 and August 1976, including two released under the WIZZARD moniker. The release also restores the original artwork and features a new essay.
