Malcolm Wild & Alwyn Wall wandered around the churches and coffee bars and concert halls of mid '70s England playing as an acoustic duo. They were like the Phil & John of their day except that for this, their second album recorded in 1974, they decided to plug in and turn up the volume a little bit. Only a little bit mind. Rockers like "Burried Alive" and "I Feel Fine" are very influenced by Larry Norman's brand of mid '70s pop rock whilst the poppier groove of "I Love" is a particular favourite of mine. (Cliff Richard liked it too, he covered it on his 'Small Corners' album.) "Spaceman" has a brilliant quirky '70s vibe to it which sounds like fun now and slower songs like "I Love You More Than Yesterday" and "Stay With Me" are similar to the acoustic material on their debut album 'Fool's Wisdom'. 'Wildwall' comes complete with three bonus live tracks recorded in California including a version of "Fool's Wisdom" and a hilarious "I Feel Fine" which captures their live spirit. Ahhh.memories!

I was a Jesus freak in the 70'ties and not I'm a Jesus freak of the 21st century, Pastoring a church on an Aleutian Island.
Hallelujia! I remember listening and listening to Malcom and Alwyn back in the late 70ties. I'm a strand dude with fools wisdom.
