Wizzard - 1973 - Wizzard Brew

Wizzard was a Birmingham-based glam rock band formed by Roy Wood, former member of The Move and co-founder of Electric Light Orchestra. The Guinness Book of 500 Number One Hits states, "Wizzard was Roy Wood just as much as Wings were Paul McCartney." Not long after the release of Electric Light Orchestra's first album, Wood found himself at odds with co-leader Jeff Lynne who would argue frequently about the direction of the band. Wood decided he wanted to head off in a different musical direction and left, taking band members Bill Hunt (keyboards and french horn), Hugh McDowell (cello), and ELO's sound engineer, Trevor Smith, with him, to found Wizzard. Also in the line-up were former Move bassist Rick Price, drummers  Charlie Grima and Keith Smart (all taken from Birmingham  group Mongrel), plus saxophone players Mike Burney and Nick Pentelow; son of actor  Arthur Pentelow. Hunt was later replaced by Bob Brady. Wizzard Brew is the first album by Wizzard, released in March 1973. In the US it was released by United Artists Records as 'Wizzard's Brew' (with a different  cover photo) and failed to chart.
