Wally - Wally

Wally was a band led by songwriter Roy Webber in the early seventies. They formed in Harrogate and were successful on the local scene. In 1973 the band entered a competition sponsored by the weekly music paper Melody Maker to find a new recording act. The final took place at the Roundhouse in London and while the band were the runners-up, they actually did very well.

The band caught the eye of radio DJ and presenter of The Old Grey Whistle Test, Bob Harris. The runners-up prize was to record a session for Bob’s radio show. Bob was so impressed with the band that he helped secure them a contract with Atlantic Records. Wally recorded their debut album with Bob Harris producing and Rick Wakeman acting as executive producer. Once the record was released the band embarked on a series of live dates including a high profile appearance at the Crystal Palace Garden Party supporting Rick Wakeman who had recently left Yes and was presenting his Journey To The Centre of The Earth Show.

This re-issue of the band’s debut album is the first time the album has been released on CD in the UK and it has been re-mastered for this release. The album also includes bonus tracks from Roy Webber's personal archive including Right By Me and Yes I would. Interest in the band is high due to the band re-forming and playing well received reunion gig,s making the release of the debut self-titled album anticipated by the loyal Wally fan base.
