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.
