Wombles - The Very Best of the Wombles (2005) Retail CD
Erm, okay ...
I'm going to assume that you already know that The Wombles was a novelty band aimed at children that existed about thirty years ago. You probably also know that they were masterminded by Mike Batt, latterly the Svengali of Katie Mellua. When I give it five stars, you can pretty much safely assume that these are not the same five stars that I would give "OK Computer" or "Sgt. Pepper". That said, this is a brilliant album.
Batt used The Wombles as a vehicle to pastiche other musical styles, so we get here, amongst others, parodies of reggae, the blues, barber shop quartets, countrymore… 'n' western, Rick Wakeman, and David Bowie. For kids that is great, because it gives them a range of musical styles to understand and appreciate, including classical music in the form of Copland, Mozart and Mussorgsky. All the best Wombles songs are here, and there is a certain amount of filler avoided. On top of which, the orchestrations and session work are absolutely at the top of their game.
If you're sick of playing the Tweenies to your children, this is an excellent alternative that may well also get some serious airtime when the little darlings are not around to hear it. Those old enough to have grown up on The Wombles (guilty as charged!) will need no further recommendation.
