• NEW REMASTERED RELEASE OF THE 1974 ALBUM BY WIZZARD
• WITH FIVE BONUS TRACKS
• FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NOTES

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new expanded re-mastered edition of the 1974 album INTRODUCING EDDY AND THE FALCONS by WIZZARD.

After earning success as a performer and songwriter with THE MOVE and THE ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA, Roy Wood formed Wizzard in 1972. The band stacked up a series of classic hit singles and released the album WIZZARD BREW for EMI’s Harvest label before departing for Warner Bros in 1974.

Wood and his band embarked on the recording of their second album, a loose concept base around a fictitious British Rock band of the early 1960s, Eddy and the Falcons. The resulting album was a triumphant pastiche and was a top twenty hit upon its release.

Unavailable on CD for many years, this welcome Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered and includes five bonus tracks drawn from singles all issued in 1974, including the top ten hit ‘Are You Ready to Rock’. The release also restores the original artwork and features a new essay and a replica poster included with the original 1974 LP release.
