Boulders is all Roy Wood ( except for a harmonium on two tracks). That's Roy singing all the vocals and playing about two dozen instruments ( including the water splashes on "Wake Up"). Roy even did the self portrait on the album cover. Among home-made albums created by single artists, Boulders is right up there with Paul ( and Linda) McCartney's Ram and Emmit Rhodes's solo debut.

Packed full of hooks , Boulders is one of 1973's true gems.
