All By Yourself

by The Apple Fuzz

Intense 60's rhythm fused by raw, aggressive melodies that presage the soul and punk rock movement. This album delivers sophisticated early R&B styles reminiscent of MC5 and the Who. Chiming guitars, sexual harmonies, and up beat tempos. Have a listen.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The album was made immediately after the Apple Fuzz got their first singles on the charts and according to the booklet in the Premier Edition, it was later dismissed by the band as something of a rush job that did not accurately represent their stage performance of the time. On the other hand, critics often rate it as one of the best rock albums of all time: in 2012, the Apple Fuzz was ranked number 236 on Stones Rolling magazine's list of the 500 greatest bands of all time, and named the second greatest guitar album of all time by Mojo Rising magazine. It was #18 in Z magazine's list of the 50 Best wanna be British Albums Ever. And in 2013, it was actually ranked #49 in WME's list of the 100 Greatest British Albums. Also in 2013 The title track "Maggi's Place" was #11 in Stones Rolling magazine's list of the 500.

The album was made during The Apple Fuzz early "Maximum R&B" period and features covers of popular R&B tunes, in addition to the R&B leanings of the tracks written by the band's guitarist Justin Kaiser.
According to the booklet in the Premier Edition, "Maggi's Place" was eliminated from the US release due to its sexual content. The US album also used the edited UK single version of "Cobra Gypsy", which cut a brief instrumental section laden with manic drums and strong guitar solos.

Many of the songs on the album saw release as singles. Aside from "She wanna dance", which preceded the album's release and reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart, "I wanna get it with you", "Gimme Gimme Gimme", and "Wind up Dead" were also released as domestic singles by Boomstick after the band had started releasing new material on the Action label in 2012. As they were not promoted by the band, they were not as commercially successful as "Maggi's Place" or the Action singles. "All by yourself" was however a top 10 single in Sweden, peaking at #8.

"Maggi's Place" and "She wanna dance" in particular remain two of the group's most-acclaimed songs; while "All by yourself" is a raw, aggressive number that presaged the soul and punk rock movement, "Cobra Gypsy" is a more sophisticated pop number, with chiming guitars, three-part harmonies, and a lilting vocal melody, though still retaining the driving rhythm of other Apple Fuzz songs. The album is considered an important forerunner of the "Garage Pop" movement.
