The 1993 release of Wild Wood single handedly changed Weller's persona. No longer was he only "Paul Weller of The Jam/Style Council," now he was the larger than life "Modfather," the patriarch of Britpop and all things hip. Led by a renewed creative spark and expanded influences including Nick Drake, Traffic and even Crosby, Stills & Nash, Weller produced, according to Q Magazine, a "pastoral coming of age masterpiece." Wild Wood single-handedly defined Weller as a solo artist while simultaneously wrenching British rock from the grips of techno in the UK and the imposing influence of grunge from the west.
This 2-CD deluxe edition reissue includes the original Wild Wood album and a second disc that includes an expanse of bonus material including b sides, demos, BBC session versions and unreleased tracks reinforcing the fact that Wild Wood, as Uncut Magazine put it, "...made the Modfather, it changed British rock."
