Reissue of the 2nd LP from 1991, originally released on Cheree Records in the UK, and Zoo Entertainment (BMG) in the US, eschewing their 'twee' British indie pop and NME baiting, Peel-session-friendly indie-ness for a more American-styled power pop sound, akin to bands like Jellyfish and Redd Kross. The Pooh Sticks released this album in 1991 after a 1990 tour of America, and the album reflected their "embrace of kitsch Americana". Like their previous work, The Great White Wonder takes bit of material (song titles, guitar riffs, melodies) of 1970s music icons and molds them into something of their own. This release features nods to Neil Young, Helen Reddy, Kim Fowley, Smokey Robinson, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Peter Frampton, Jonathan Richman, Lou Reed, The Sweet, Chic, James Taylor – well maybe not all of them.
