Paul Weller - Wild Wood: Deluxe Version (2007) Retail CD
This deluxe edition of what i personally consider to be Wellers finest moment is a welcome reissue and one which should have been done before the previous deluxe Stanley Road.
Weller and band were straight off the road and into the studio , many of these numbers were already being played live and were well known to most fans. The opening Sunflower is full of passion Wellers voice almost screaming for lost love through the simple acoustic pastoral style of the blindingly fantastic Country to the power house of Has My Fire Really gone Out this album is one classic after another.
The sound is verymore… live and the acoustic material intimate , Weller even gives a nod to some freaky hip hop dub fillers inbetween the tracks it is one hell of an album, full of passion and fire , Weller never sounding better. His touch is light the mood jubulant and it comes through in this sunlight tinged masterpiece.
Weller honed this summer feel perfectly with the next album if albums were seasons this was spring , next came the summer till the stripped live sound became a bleak Heavy Soul the autumn and winter in one.
The extras on offer here are truly rare indeed im a keen collector and have non of the demos on show here have appeared on bootlegs etc . The first listen is like an alternative version of the album . Most of the core songs are there and many are more arranged and complex than the finished article , if anything show Wellers less is more attitude with the band being slowly stripped away.
The B sides are nice to have in one package and the radio sessions are solo acoustic affairs and nice to hear again.
It would have been nice to have some visual material he did auditioned a couple of songs on Jools Holland at the time and did blistering versions of Sunflower and Has My fire really gone.
Also a big omission is the alternative jap release versions of Weaver and Pictures on the Wall from the Jap release , these were different takes to the uk release (even many hardcore collectors do not realise this so worth a buy if you can find it?)
Apart from this it a superb purchase and well worth a double (or in my case quadruple) dip.
Even if you don;t like Weller much this album will appeal ...buy it.
