Professor Wurzel's WURZELMANIA! - October 2021


This month's website release includes copies of some rather rare press releases made when Adge and his Wurzels 'Little Darlin' 1972 single was reissued in 1974 after his death. And on this page we have also included an extract of a previously unreleased tape of Adge and his Wurzels practising the 'B' side of the single -  'Mother Nature Calling'.

Following Adge's death in May 1974 both EMI and Pye saw fit to re-release singles to commemorate the sad event. EMI reissued Adge's very first single 'Drink Up Thy Zider' from 1966 whereas Pye/Santa Ponsa decided to reissue the group's final single 'Little Darlin' back with 'Mother Nature Calling'. Press releases to accompany the Pye/Santa Ponsa releases have recently been added to the archives and can be seen in full here

Here is a unique chance, for a limited time only, to listen to a 'live' and unplugged version of 'Mother Nature Calling'.

This is taken from a rehearsal session made in early 1972 and was  unearthed from a pile of tapes at an auction by a keen Adge Cutler fan. Image on the right taken at the time of this single's release shows (left to right) Reg Quantrill, Adge Cutler, Tony Baylis and Tommy Banner.
