Of course, the wind sort of swept up and the music
was flying around in mid air and they were trying to play off it.
You had to be there.
It was quite funny.
- Roy Wood

I named it that because more or less each person from
the band used to play in other bands and when we left
respective bands other members from those bands all sort of changed round.
It was a big sort of move thing.
I got it from that, I suppose.
- Roy Wood

Well, obviously I wanted it to sound as original as possible.
I suppose the influences that we had were probably
from the actual power point of view we wanted to be like the Who.

whatever was good at the time.
- Roy Wood

I've always been a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde.

as possible so that the people can walk down the road and whistle a song.

to show people what you can do.

Unfortunately, most of the songs that I write I don't
write them with guitar in mind.
I just write it as a song and that was probably one

I had already written a song called 'Dear Elaine,'
which I subsequently put on the Boulders album.
I thought at the time that was probably the best song I'd written.
- Roy Wood

To me, 'Blackberry Way' stands up as a song that could be sung in any era,
really.
We do it with the new doing all sort of fanfare things
in it and it works really well.
It goes down great with audiences.
- Roy Wood

I think it was probably down to the fact that we weren't
together personally as a band.
We weren't pulling in the same direction.
I always feel if you're having a good time in the studio
it actually comes across on the tape and that was a
bit of a miserable album for us.
- Roy Wood

When we did a lot of that Motown stuff there were four of us on the front line.
When we started the evening we'd start from one end
of the band and just go along.
The lead singer would change all the time.
That's the first time that I actually managed to put it into a record.
- Roy Wood
