Roy Wood’s Wizzard: Indiana Rainbow

What is he up to? Roy’s stopped trying to sound like Phil Spector and/or Bill Haley, which is a relief, but this is weird. On one level it’s a lot like the Tornados’ ‘Telstar’, but then it keeps breaking into jazz, and vocally Roy comes on like the singer in a particularly dated Irish showband. It’s certainly non-format, and may be a surprise hit, but I doubt it.
