1970

Mercury

Wizards Of Kansas - S/T

Review:

On of the great lost classics of the 1970's is this stunning album that is an absolutely essential item in anyone's psych collection.

Part of the band decided to leave a week before the album was released and things fell apart with the label losing interest it dissapeared into ths mists of time before getting a reboot in 2003 by way of an unnoficial (but brilliant) reissue from Radioactive (RRPD009).

Sitting somewhere between Rural Rock, West Coast Sun Baked Hippie vibes and West Coast Psychedelia this remains one of my my favourite albums of all time.

There's not a bad track on the album and amongst those are some real killer tracks including a version of Codine that **MIGHT** just be even better than the stunning Mathew Moore Plus Four version from 1965 and the incredible High Flying Bird with its ever soaring guitar licks and loose drumming.
Just wait until the fuzz guitar kicks in during the closing seonds of the track......WOW !!

Pig Newton & The Wizards From Kansas - Still in Kansas

2003

Rockadelic Records

Track List:

Flyaway Daze, She Rides With Witches, Misty Mountainside, Codine, High Flying Bird, Country Dawn, All Along the Watchtower, Clouds of Exchange.

Pig Newton & The Wizards From Kansas

Review:

What we have here are some early demos put down on tape by The Wizards From Kansas when they were still calling themselves the rather cumbersome ‘Pig Newton & The Wizards From Kansas’. All tracks were recorded in Lawrence, Kansas or Kansas City, Missouri and date from 1968-1969. With exception to “Country Dawn” it’s impossible for me to say that these demos are any better than the official LP versions. They are, however, more crisp and at times certainly more raw than the ones used on the Mercury album.

We are talking about some very subtle differences between these demos and the final Mercury LP versions. On “Still in Kansas” we are basically presented with a young band that are still working out their tunes. For instance here “She Rides With Witches” has no drum solo and “Misty Mountainside” is virtually unplugged. With exception to a few minor changes here and there such as some guitar strumming that replaces the bass or drums and perhaps some subtle differences in vocal harmonies, “Fly Away Daze”, “Codine” and “High Flying Bird” are still the great songs that they eventually became and generally these tracks are as good as the final versions used on the LP. In fact, even here as rough demos “High Flying Bird” and “Codine” are so strong that they still outshine and easily stand head and shoulders above numerous other bands who have covered the songs.

There are, however, three-tracks on “Still in Kansas” that make this album particularly noteworthy: “Country Dawn”, “All Along The Watchtower”, and “Clouds of Exchange”. These three songs are possibly the W.F.K’s most psychedelic work. This demo of “Country Dawn” is far superior to the one used on their album. Here the song takes on a sun scorched, lysergic feel…more acid folk than country rock. Likewise their version of “All Along The Watchtower” is completely soaked in discordant lysergia. Great plumes of sugarcoated wah-wah guitar carries the song forth and helps make it sound more like Michigan’s ‘Index’ than the W.F.K. Finally, the best and most psychedelic track on the whole album is the rather brilliant “Clouds of Exchange”. This is a wonderful chunk of West Coast acid rock that sounds like some great-lost early Quicksilver Messenger Service outtake.

“Still in Kansas” is a snapshot of a young band developing their repertoire. For those lucky enough to be familiar with The Wizards From Kansas album (Mercury Records 61309), Rockadelic’s latest offering wont change the way you already view this band, what it will do however is offer you more insight into how this superb group progressed, developed and eventually went on to record one of the finest albums to come out of America in 1970. Every time I listen to their sole album it amazes me they didn’t receive the recognition they truly deserved.

Although 90% of the material contained on “Still in Kansas” is alternative/demo versions of already familiar tunes the songs themselves are of such high quality (as is the sound) the record truly is superb from start to finish. So go on, what are you waiting for? Treat yourself to some early goodies from ‘Pig Newton and The Wizards From Kansas’.

You won’t be disappointed.
