THE WIGGGS OF 1666 - IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME


THE WIGGGS OF 1666 - 'Never'/'It Will Never Be The Same' (Mercury 72527) January 1966

With a very strange name like The Wigggs Of 1666 I was expecting sonic bliss but what I got from the A-Side 'Never' is tedium of the lowest order. I played this side once a few years ago and it turned the colours in my mind a darker shade of white. Really terrible folkie sounds with male/female vocals.

The flip 'It Will Never Be The Same' is how it should be done. It appears that this square and unhip folk combo took a couple of drags on a strong spliff and got totally wired.

Information on The Wigggs Of 1666 is non existant. There is no mention in FA&F and BW Price Guide lists the record but does not provide a location. Both sides were produced by Hal Mooney, an experienced in-house arranger and producer for Mercury Records throughout the 60s.

  3. in the late 80's I swapped tapes with the guy who did the Hoosier Hysteria zine. He'd send me his lists and I'd pick out tunes I wanted to hear mainly by their outrageous names. You guessed it, this was one of them.

    Of course I lost the cue sheet long ago but couldn't forget this song. Thanks for posting.
