Blue Moves was the second double album Elton John recorded that was released in September 1976, a three-year gap after the classic 1973 double album, Goodbye Yellowbrick Road. His 1975 album, "Rock Of The Westies", saw Elton John bring back drummer Roger Pope, and guitarist Caleb Quaye, both of whom appeared on Elton John's self-titled 1970 album, as well as bassist Kenny Passsarelli, and James Newton-Howard, who would eventually become one of film's most prominent composers, and is the lineup that featured on this LP.
To those fans of a certain BBC programme called, "Top Gear", the track, "Out Of The Blue", is better known for closing each edition of the show as the Allman Brothers opened it with the 1973 song, "Jessica", so for those TV buffs, I hope this answers the, "What Was The Music Used On Top Gear?", question.
Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, is as classic as sliced bread. I was dismayed when Elton re-recorded it with a certain band called Blue. This re-recording loses its approach to the 1976 original. The version we all know, and love. The qualtiy of the original ouclasses the re-recording in every department.
What other goodies are on the album, "Theme From A Non-Existent TV Series", "Your Starter For....", and, "Bite Your Lip(Get Up And Dance)". Underrated album, NEVER. This is definitely worth having in your collection.
