Can You Help?

Throughout the Wurzelmania! website there are various questions scattered about - all to do with The Wurzels and Adge Cutler. The questions have been collected together on this page. If YOU, dear Scrumpy & Western reader, can answer any of these questions, we at the Wurzelmania! website will be eternally grateful!

Discography Questions

  • Does anyone know of any records by The Wurzels or Adge Cutler that are not listed in the Discography?
  • Little Darlin'There is a gap of about five years between Adge Cutler's 1969 album Carry On Cutler! and his death in 1974, during which the only known record issued is the single Little Darlin'. Does anyone know why there was such a gap in recording?
  • Can anyone identify the mystery band on the cover of the Little Darlin' single by Adge Cutler & The Wurzels? (right)

Wurzelography Questions

  • Can anyone provide any more details about past and present members of The Wurzels - dates when members of the band joined / left?, info on their solo careers?, current sightings, etc.
  • In the Adge Cutler version of The Mixer Man's Lament (on the first album), the name of the ganger has been overdubbed by electric guitar (presumably in the studio). Does anyone know what the name was, and why it was edited out? [On The Wurzels' 1977 version they use the name Ol' Les Stroud - is this the same name as Adge used?]

Recording Session Details (Dates, etc.)

Does anyone know the exact dates of the Adge Cutler & The Wurzels recording sessions, and also in the case of Adge, when certain tracks were recorded. Can you provide any details?

  • Can anyone provide any details of when/where any of the following songs by Adge Cutler & The Wurzels were recorded, i.e. at which session, dates, etc.? They were all originally issued as singles and not on any albums except the later compilations:

        - All Over Mendip - the single version
        - Aloha Severn Beach - the single version
        - Champion Dung Spreader - the single version
        - Chitterling
        - Don't Tell I, Tell 'Ee
        - Faggots Is The Stuff
        - I Wish I Was Back On The Farm
        - My Threshing Machine
        - Poor, Poor Farmer
        - Up The Clump - the single version

    My guess is that Faggots Is The Stuff may have been recorded at the Webbington Country Club session for Cutler Of The West - maybe you were there and know for certain?
  • Does anyone know the exact dates of any of the following recording sessions?

        - the Cutler Of The West 1968 session at the Webbington Country Club
        - the Carry On Cutler! 1969 session at the Webbington Country Club
        - the Carry On Cutler! 1969 session at the White Buck Inn, Burley

    Details of the Carry On Cutler! sessions in particular are confusing and any clarification would be appreciated - see also the next three questions below
  • Does anyone know which tracks of the Carry On Cutler! album were recorded at the Webbington Country Club and which tracks were recorded at the White Buck Inn, Burley?
  • The version of Aloha Severn Beach on the 1969 Carry On Cutler! album is a different cut from the 1968 single version. However, the album states that the track was recorded in 1968. Is this correct, or was the album version actually recorded in 1969?
    [Note: The two versions are different, but similar enough to make it seem likely they were recorded around the same time, possibly even at the same session. - Zider Ed]

  • The version of All Over Mendip on the 1969 Carry On Cutler! album is a different cut from the 1967 single version. However, the album states that the track was recorded in 1967. Is this correct, or was the album version actually recorded in 1969?
    [Note: In this case, the two versions are markedly different - even the arrangement differs between the two. It therefore seems more likely that the later version was indeed recorded at a later date than the 1967 one - Zider Ed]

  • Can anyone confirm that the 45 rpm single versions of the following songs by Adge Cutler & The Wurzels are the same as those on the albums?

        - When The Common Market Comes To Stanton Drew
        - Easton-In-Gordano
        - Ferry To Glastonbury
        - Saturday Night At The Crown
  • Does anyone know who played the Hawaiian guitar on Aloha Severn Beach (either version)?
