Roy Wood's Wizzard - Ball Park Incident mp3 album

Roy Wood (born 8 November 1946) is an English singer-songwriter and t. He was particularly successful in the 1960s and 1970s as member and co-founder of The Move, Electric Light Orchestra and Wizzard.

Wizzard were an English glam rock band formed by Roy Wood, former member of the Move and co-founder of the Electric Light Orchestra. The Guinness Book of 500 Number One Hits states, "Wizzard was Roy Wood just as much as Wings was Paul McCartney. They are most famous for their 1973 Christmas song "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday"

Wizzard itself was a rather schizophrenic aggregate, alternating raucous and fast loud rock (this album) with fussed over, Phil Spector-sounding pop singles. The year 1973 was their peak, which saw the release of this and 3 of their 4 biggest hit singles. t (he plays A LOT of different instruments), band leader, and chief songwriter Roy Wood radically departs here from what fans may have expected of his earlier band The Move. Roy Wood's voice is beautifully distorted on the remaining songs, adding to an extremely rocking feel. The sax's sound is a three dimensional presence in the room. The guitars, heck everthing, has a solid/weighty quality that just feels like "hard rock" at it's best.

Wood hasn’t released an album of new music in 29 years and rarely gives interviews – Simon Reynolds’ attempts to contact him for his definitive, new history of glam, Shock and Awe, came to naught – although he pops up occasionally on TV when the time comes for Wizzard’s deathless 1973 smash I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day to make it. Then there was the honking blare of Wizzard’s Ball Park Incident and Angel Fingers, the latter a No 1 single about the transient nature of pop fandom, a song that, metaphorically speaking, keeps glancing nervously off to the side of the stage: Will Dion still be so important to you on your wedding day?
