we've all seen the queen.
The World of Oz were a British psychedelic pop group who released a sole self-titled LP in 1968, before fading into relative obscurity. Their song 'The Muffin Man' was a minor hit in the UK and US, and reached the Top 10 in a number of European countries. - wikipedia
that is seriously all i could find out about this band... there isn't a whole lot floating out there about them. all i can say is if you liked that hearts & flowers album i posted, then you'll dig this. this is a bit more pastoral folk pop with minor psych flourishes than that band, but it also reminds me a bit of the byrds as well. a really fantastic album with pretty goofy artwork. i've been really diggin' on this one hepcats.
