Grupa Stack Waddy jest najprawdopodobniej znana każdemu miłośnikowi białego bluesa i garażowego grania. Albumy Stack Waddy były już prezentowane na naszych łamach. W ubiegłym roku ukazała się w niewielkim nakładzie - tylko na winylu (bodajże czerwonym) płyta zawierające niepublikowane nagrania z sesji zespołu. Po przesłuchaniu już rozumiem dlaczego limitowanym. Płyta dedykowana jest chyba tylko fanom i kolekcjonerom. Według mnie nie zawiera ona żadnych odkryć ani walorów muzycznych. Zaryzykuję nawet twierdzenie, że gdybym poznał muzykę grupy zaczynając od tej płyty - nie chciałbym ich słuchać nigdy więcej :)
Limited numbered 180 gram vinyl LP. Red vinyl 400 only, numbered initial pressing gatefold sleeve, with previously unreleased rare tracks. Admired the world over by Beefheart and Zappa fans, John Peel listeners and fans of punk, heavy rock and blues. Manchester's Stack Waddy's previous two albums set the benchmark for being punks before the word even existed and yet they were hippy long haired rockers who on the one hand promoters and John Peel loved but on the other hand also struck fear into them at the mention of their name. Stack Waddy were a legendary Manchester long haired four piece who were active intermittently for only a few years in the last forty years.The members were Mick Stott, Stuart Banham, John Knail and Steve Revell, Steve Revell was later replaced by John Groom. Taking their name from a character in MAD magazine, Stack Waddy came together at the end of the summer of 1969. They often performed Beefheart and Zappa numbers live and their own material song titles in the studio were just often made up on the spot. John Peel " I have always had a love of bands from the Manchester area, in the early 70s I signed up two great bands StackWaddy from Timperley and Tractor/The Way We Live from Rochdale. Then of course later in the 70 s the Rochdale studios above Tractor s music shop would record tracks by my other favourite Manchester rebels The Fall. Back to Stack Waddy, their attitude was apalling but wonderful at the same time, they gave me a certain amount of grief but I have to say I really liked them. Their antics make even the most outrageous punk bands that came later seem so tame. They just played the same in the studio as they did live, hard loud and alcohol infused" On the 13 tracks on the "Lost Dandelion Jams " Stack Waddy were in the studio and recording in their usual raucous style the same style as when they were playing live.
Recommended only for real collectors and fans of the band !!! Poor sound quality !!!
