Michael Elo –Wizzy Lizzy


Michael Elo –That’s My Bag/ Wizzy Lizzy –Philips 6012 364 (1973 NL)
Frizzy Micky sings Wizzy Lizzy! Michael was a Danish citizen who had quite a few releases including a solo album with the self-effacing title "Me" in ‘71. This single was recorded in The Netherlands under the supervision of producer Hans Van Hemert (Because The Cats coming soon…) and it’s a nifty Hard Rockin’ Glam crossover. The lyrics allude to that great Danish obsession with broomsticks and the like, but there’s no foul, only fair to be found here…Perhaps not a great Dane, but a man of definite merit based on this B side in any case.

Pretty sure Michael Elo wouldn't mind sending you a copy, if you have been looking for it for that long. He certainly knows obsessing over finding a certain song or album. You can mail me, and I'll forward your mail to him. mischaelodk@hotmail.com

Thats my bag was the A-side wasn't it? Radio NorthSea played it frequently around 1973, it was in their DJ hitpicks and Radio Veronica featured the song in their TipParade. Don't think it charted though in Holland. Would love to hear the song again, it must be 38 years ago when I last heard it on crackling medium wave! Oh what fun in those days.
