Philwit & Pegasus [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Philwit & Pegasus is an epic in search of a narrative or gripping theme, not to mention decent pop songs. The quite detailed and lengthy historical liner notes on the CD reissue of this rarity give the impression that principal creator Mark Wirtz thought he was devising an arty song cycle of sorts, or a movie on record. What it sounds like, however, is a collection of fairly unrelated unexceptional pop songs, decorated by occasionally ambitious grandiose instrumentation that sometimes puts it as close to easy listening as to pop

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Philwit & Pegasus is an epic in search of a narrative or gripping theme, not to mention decent pop songs. The quite detailed and lengthy historical liner notes on the CD reissue of this rarity give the impression that principal creator Mark Wirtz thought he was devising an arty song cycle of sorts, or a movie on record. What it sounds like, however, is a collection of fairly unrelated unexceptional pop songs, decorated by occasionally ambitious grandiose instrumentation that sometimes puts it as close to easy listening as to pop
ock. The influence of the most Baroque elements of the Beach Boys and late-'60s California sunshine pop can be felt at times particularly on "My What a Lovely Day It's Been", as can on "Yoyo Thoughts" early mellow laid-back L.A. country-folk-rock. Then, however, you get to "And I Try," which sounds like an even more overwrought Tom Jones tackling an MOR ballad. It's an odd and not especially tasty mixture. [The 2003 CD reissue on RPM adds four bonus tracks, two of those being the non-LP single "Elephant Song"/"Pseudo Phoney Mixed Up Croney," which boast a far brittler eccentric pop
ock sound than the album, jumbling bubblegum, psychedelic, and pre-glam rock stomp. The other two bonus tracks, "Mr. Sun King" and "Avalon," are far more in the style of the gentler cuts on the Philwit & Pegasus album, "Mr. Sun King" sounding a little like a pop parody of the most subdued material John Lennon wrote at the end of the 1960s.]
