Editorial Reviews

2008 Vinyl 180 gram pressing. Previously reissued on CD. Long 'prayed for' reissue of this classic 1970 UK folk stunner that's a missing link both in the Wizz Jones oeuvre and in the guitar-freedom music of the prime era. The Legendary Me was Wizz Jones' second studio album, originally released by the obscure Village Thing label. Cosmically figuring somewhere between the non-trad radical expressions of the Mike Cooper/Roy Harper axis and Clive Palmer's post-ISB journey, Jones' terrestrial position finds him alongside Davy Graham, Shirley Collins & Palmer at the dawn of '60s UK freedom. The Legendary Me has been impossible to find since release. Includes detailed liner notes and cool vintage photos.

Format: Audio CD
I had to write this review (which I rarely do) in response to the single other review here for this album (Wizz Jones "Legendary Me"). Full disclosure: I have met Wizz multiple times and have contributed to Scenescof Records, which released one of Wizz's CDs in the past. However, I hope you take my comments separately from that, as I greatly admired Wizz's playing long before meeting him, and this release is by a different company that I have nothing to do with.

Wizz is not a second-rate John Renbourn or Bert Jansch. His music and playing is of absolutely the first water. I love the music of both Renbourn and Jansch, and Wizz is easily of their caliber. Wizz' guitar playing has an assurance and power that comes on like a piledriver during chordwork and surrounds the listener with sparkling, hypnotic patterns during picking. His voice is able to express deep wells of sorrow or tenderness and at other times wistfulness or humour or outrage, always with the given feeling that the singer has actually been through the event he is describing. However, it is the song material that perhaps most differentiates him from Renbourn and Jansch. I know it's difficult to compare with great songsmiths like those two, but I have to say that I find myself singing and coming back to Wizz's and Tunbridge's songs more often. Wizz sings songs that often are more personal and engaging and at the same time more effervescent than most of the rest of the UK folk artists. The first time you hear him it immediately sounds great, but over time, instead of interest dying off, the songs work their way into your life. Wizz' music has a vivacity that is unique.
