NUTZ 'NUTZ TOO' CANDY368 (with 1 bonus track) Categories: Sales , New Release

“LIVERPOOL BASED quartet Nutz were signed to the hip and happening independent label A&M records during the early seventies and represented an emerging breed following in the grand footsteps of established master practitioners such as Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Queen. Their debut album displayed a maturity beyond their years, attracting positive applause and strong reviews. In addition to a healthy touring schedule it was a successful exercise in laying the ground work for the future. So, with a positive reputation established, the group set about recording their follow-up album in London’s Trident studios utilising, once again, producer John Anthony who had so successfully guided their debut. It wise a wise move as the resultant record showed distinct maturity and a great gift for constructive arrangements. It also continued to showcase the inventive guitar playing of Mick Devonport and Dave Lloyd’s mellifluous and uniquely identifiable voice. Issued in 1975 on the A&M label and, once again, housed in a somewhat risque cover, ‘Nutz Too’ housed a brace of intelligent and well constructed tracks that veer from on-point mid-seventies hard rock such as ‘Take It From Me’, ‘Cool Me Down’ and the jewel in the crown ‘Sinner’, to more introspective fair like ‘Dear Diary and ‘The Love You Lost’. A solid record, then, and one that also gave them an opportunity to make a memorable appearance on the BBC’s ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’ TV programme.”
