2 stars This was the first release of this band, and the music here sounds exactly same as the material of BLUESSECTION, from which WIGWAM had just evolved. These songs are not very progressive, but more like carefully recorded 60's pop songs with slight psychedelic features. There are several layers of vocals from the composer JIM PEMBROKE here, and the overall feeling is glad and youthful. "Must Be The Devil" appeared also on the Love Records compilation "Reunion" from year 1970, and the whole single was re-released at year 2000 on "Fresh Garbage" double CD. The original single is of course quite pricy, and only for the serious collectors.

4 stars let's get one thing straight, wigwam were the best prog band outside the uk ever and far better than most of the ones inside it, this single however precedes their prog era, it is though a classic piece of late 60's psychedelic whimsy and is an early indication of jim pembrokes genius. the b-side has a chorus that could be sung with gusto at every west ham united home game, those of you who have heard this song and know your football will know what i mean. i love this single, but it's true to say that wigwams amazing music really took off shortly afterwards when the 17 year old keyboard maestro jukka gustavson joined the band. both sides are available on the fresh garbage cd, don't miss out !
