Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:
To Adge” is a wonderful heart warming tribute to the farmyard
four's founder, Adge Cutler. Adge, who was tragically killed
in 1974, was and indeed still is the main inspiration that
keeps the Wurzels entertaining us all and this new song
has gentle overtones of Adge's ‘Twice Daily' and is interweaved
with many of his well-known lyrics.
The narrative of Adge's life story is divided into segments
by the lively and catchy chorus all carefully and lovingly
written by the Wurzel's own Pete Budd and musically arranged
by Cruisin' Music's Louie Nicastro.
The new single was a first for the Wurzels in that it was
only available via internet download – now what would dear
old Adge have made of that! He would probably have taken
it in his stride; after all, he did advocate putting a Somerset
man into space to join the space race back in 1967, stating
that “we should keep up with all they modern things an'
some lucky fans a traditional CD version of this single
can be found - a limited promo version for radio stations
was sent out before the release date. It's worth getting
your hands on a copy as not only does it have the 'standard'
track (running at 4.59) but also has a 'radio edit' which
comes in at 3.41
