From the early song-writing days of their founder Adge Cutler in the 1950's through to their first recording contract withEMI in 1966, his tragic death in 1974, the post-Adge Wurzel's chart topping successes in the 1970's and 1980's and the countrywide acclaim and successes of The Wurzels today in the 21st century
This site is an ongoing project by Professor Wurzel aiming to be the most comprehensive guide for the Wurzel enthusiast and collector - a mass of detailed knowledge on the group's record releases both in the UK and overseas - with meticulous and in-depth details on rare and collectable vinyl variations and record sleeves, cassette tapes, CDs, 8-track cassettes, song lyrics, promotional photos, newspaper articles, advertising flyers and photographs - the list is endless. So dive in and enjoy! - and if you want to just do a keyword search of the entire site - then here's a handy Google site-search box for you! As the founder of this website, Paul Gunningham, said in 1999: "The purpose of the 'Wurzelmania!' website is to help spread the word to the uninitiated about Adge Cutler & The Wurzels' music - to share information and inform others interested in keeping the spirit of Adge Cutler alive, to fill in the gaps in our collective Wurzel knowledge gathered here for posterity".
