ROY WOOD - Singles (1993)
Roy Wood, born in Birmingham, England, on November 8, 1946 (whose birth name is oftentimes incorrectly listed as Ulysses Adrian Wood due to a flip comment made in an interview), has long been regarded as one of the most important, if eccentric, rock musicians to have come out of that city, primarily for his role as the leader/co-founder of both the Move and the Electric Light Orchestra.
Mr Roy Wood has simply got to be the most underrated rock hero of all time. Period. Oh sure, there have been talented musicians and composers that are even more deeply forgotten and can only be 'unearthed' by pure accident. But it's the stunningly deep, incommeasurate gap between Wood's talent and importance and his modern-day stature that I'm talking about: Wood was, no doubt about it, one of the most brilliant musical geniuses of his epoch. A good comparison would be with David Bowie, whom Roy in his best days had beat on virtually every count, except for one - the ability to market himself. With all his talent, Roy never could make the real transgression to international pop star, or, rather, never really tried to, never toying with public tastes and often staying right out of touch with the times in order to preserve his artistic integrity. - starling.rinet.ru
