Boulders is the first solo album by Roy Wood. Apart from harmonium on track 1 played by John Kurlander, all the instruments and voices were by Wood, who also wrote, arranged, and produced the whole album, and did a self-portrait for the front cover. It peaked at No. 15 in the UK album chart. Most of the album was recorded while Wood was still in The Move, although it was not released until he had left the Electric Light Orchestra and was fronting Wizzard. Two singles were taken from the album, ‘When Gran’ma Plays the Banjo’/’Wake Up’, and ‘Dear Elaine’/’Songs of Praise’. The latter reached No. 18 in the UK charts. "Rock Down Low" and "The Locomotive" were sometimes featured by Wizzard in their live performances. "Songs of Praise" was recorded by the New Seekers and reached the last six for the British entry to the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest. Roy Wood had previously attempted recording "She's Too Good For Me" in 1968 with Move bandmate Trevor Burton before re-recording the song entirely himself for "Boulders". These early attempts were released on "The Move Anthology". ‘Boulders’ was reissued on CD by EMI/Harvest on August 27, 2007.
