Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A prime slice of live Move, and which shows what a staggering group they were live, this is the 1969 band pre 'Jeff Lynne', but post 'Ace Kefford' and 'Trevor Burton'. The line up 'Rick Price' on Bass, 'Bullfrog Bevan' on Drums, the late 'Carl Wayne' Vocals (and the source of the tapes which make up this two disc set) and 'Roy Wood' on anything that can be plucked (guitar and Electric Sitar I believe.

Packed with Improvisation which almost pre-dates prog rock and heavy like Birmingham compatriots 'Black Sabbath'. Fans of the 'Shazam' album will love this as all but 'Beautiful Daughter' from that LP appear on this. Yes the sound may leave a little to be desired but this is far better than bootleg quality, and puts official live albums like King Crimson's 'Earthbound' for instance in the shade.
Highlights for me are the already release on the Move box set ' I can Here the Grass Grow', and the previously unheard 'Goin' Back' and the two versions of Cherry Blossom Clinic Revisited'

As a bonus you also get a nice interview with Bev, 10 Minutes or so of quite insightful reminiscence of that tour.

This album shows what a great live band 'The Move' were and baring the equally good Something Else EP pretty much all there is. Embrace this as its shameful that its been stuck in a vault for over 40 years. Yes I am a very big and unapologetic Move fan but I love this. And will be playing it many times over the next few years.

Not an essential - unless you are a Move fan - then it is. They only play a couple of old hits the rest are covers and long versions of songs at that. The recording is good quality and gives you what you'd have heard if you were to be fortuanate to be at that gig.

AN ALbum all 60's rock fans, and rock fans period, should hear 3 Mar 2012
By RoboGoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an insanely GREAT album. The mighty Move captured in a couple of performances at Fillmore West in 1969 when they were absolutely on top it. Yes, it's pretty much a front-of-house board tape, so it's gonna be vocal heavy, but after the first track, which is way out of balance vocal and instrument-wise, things even out nicely and you hear why the Move was heralded in Europe and England as one of the greatest live bands ever, though remaining relatively unknown here in the U.S.
In its most stripped down line-up - Carl Wayne on vocals, Roy Wood on guitar, banjar and vocals, Rick Price on bass and vocals, and Bev Bevan on drums - the power of the sound is amazing. The dominating, overdriven bass sound of Rick Price rivals any of that type a la Jack Bruce, John Entwhistle, John Wetton, Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, whoever, it's as mammoth of a bass sound as there was or is. In this wide open format, the genius of Roy Wood on guitar is showcased, and we get to hear his home-made "banjar", which was a banjo that he strung like a Turkish sar, and sounds very much like a sitar. Bev Bevan's drums are as bombastic as you'd expect, and he shows off some tasty licks that normally aren't heard on the studio stuff.
Any Move fan knows the vocals were always amazing in all of their lineups. As usual, here we have three singers who are all lead-singer quality. The vocals are great, if upfront, and the stretches they make, the chances they take, and what they pull off both vocally and instrumentally will amaze anyone who's been in a rock band or knows live music and its normal limits. They don't play it safe in any respect.
This is also gold for the Move fan as we get to hear the great Carl Wayne on lead vocals at the end of his stint, and the Move in that transition period just before Jeff Lynne joined. So you get the groovy psychedilc-pop of the Carl Wayne era with the thunderous delivery of the "Looking On"/"Message From the Country" Move. And if you want a sparkling example of what live psychedelic-rock was like at its best in the late 60's, there isn't any better example.
So don't expect a perfect sound, it's flawed and there's some obvious damage, as the long-lost tapes had to be extensively restored. The vocals are often too loud, and the power of the drums and bass fades back occasionally. But there's a LOT more good parts than bad.
This is a chronicle and testament to a group that should be way beyond the mere cult status that they achieved, and to an era of live music that will never be matched, in my opinion.
Word to Move fanatics - in limited supply, you can get a Bev Bevan signed copy direct from Right Recordings, and it gets here at only about $6 or $7 more than Amazon's price.

Proves beyond a doubt they could recreate their incredible heavy sound LIVE 24 Feb 2012
By Dano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A must buy for any Move fans, of course, but what incredible music for younger music fans to experience for the first time. This is definitive proof that if The Move had played The Fillmore East they would have been The Top English rock band, right next to Led Zeppelin. But being inventive was all that mattered to these musicians, especially Roy Wood, so playing the same songs over and over on a national tour would probably have lead to boredom. These songs were perfected already so how could they have been improved upon. But superstardom would have been deservedly theirs, instead of others who just seemed to luck into it. Just to imagine where Roy Wood would have gone musically if The Move was a money making proposition. Their final albums were ignored Classics that in newly remastered form I highly recommend everyone to get. They never had the right promotion machine, which would lead to Americans in large numbers loving their music. As everyone else in 69 were declaring Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin as the only bands to really matter, in the 70's the musically smart people knew who the truly gifted musicians were. I for one always thought the Heaviest song ever was "Under the Ice" by The Nazz. Well this tune of incredible sustained energy is actually presented here in an extended version and is "Heavier" than ever. These guys surely had excellent taste in music, as their cover of Tom Paxton's classic "The Last Thing on my Mind", with it's mind melting guitar solo by Roy Wood, is done here perfectly in 2 versions! Same thing with "Don't Make my Baby Blue", with it's genius obnoxious Heaviness intact! Then their's "Hello Suzy", as perfect a rock song as ever been written. This release is surely one of Epic Proprtions and should be digested by every rock fan in the world.

Really good addition to the Move catalogue. 27 April 2012
By Rick Holly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love The Move. In the late 60's a friend of mine moved with his family to England (military father). We kept in touch and he would often rave in his letters about his favorite band The Move. I kept waiting to hear them on New York radio but never did. Finally I went to my local "record store" (remember those...I miss 'em) and ordered what was the first album "The Move". Wow!! "Flowers In The Rain", "Cherry Blossum Clinic" "I Can Hear The Grass Grow".... I was blown away. Needless to say I became a big fan.

This CD set taken from a live 1969 Fillmore West concert (opening for Joe Cocker and Little Richard) is a nice gift from the late Carl Wayne. The recording is a soundboard recording and at times the vocals are a little out of balance with the instruments but considering the source and the age of the recording, it is fairly high quality. This is not an audience bootleg. You can clearly hear all of the instruments in really decent audio quality.

This CD is important to Move fans for several reasons; 1. The historic nature of the recording. It was The Move's only US tour. 2. The fairly high quality of the recording. 3. The most important reason is the high energy performance itself. They are playing great. If you think about the fact that this was 1969 and the band was playing to a San Francisco audience who was more use to bands like The Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Meassanger Service and others who were more into that hippy-dippy-easy-going sound, The Move must have seemed like sledge hammer. Bev's drums on this recording are powerful, almost brutal. I submit that his playing at that time was at least as powerful as Keith Moon but more tasteful and important to the bands music. Bev doesn't just keep the beat, his playing is an important addition to the music. Roy Wood's guitar playing shows he was not only an exceptional song writter but is one of the most underated players of that era, often approaching "Hendix" territory. Carl Wayne has a really versatile musical voice that blows away most singers of the late 60's and the harmonies from Roy and Rick Price are very tight and strong.

If you are a fan of The Move you have to own this. If you are a "newbie" to The Move I suggest starting with a Best of... package. Then you can decide if you want to get further into them and buy this excellent CD.

WHAT MOVE FANS HAVE ALWAYS WANTED 4 Mar 2012
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The only reason I'm writing anything about this live set, since it's already been reviewed, is that THE MOVE (what a great name for a band!) is, and has been from the beginning, one of my favorite English bands of the period. Two of my college friends talked me into going to the Fillmore-I really wanted to hear (and see) Joe Cocker-and THE MOVE were just the icing on the cupcake they used to talk me into going into the twilight zone (I didn't need anything "extra" to enjoy the music). Cocker (and his band) was good. But THE MOVE were in a class by themselves. For me, Little Richard paled in comparison. But back in the 60's, very few people new of the band-except those lucky enough (like me)-who were really plugged into all this great new music, that seemed to just appear on what seemed like a weekly basis, and that lived close to where it was all happening. THE MOVE (like THE ZOMBIES and THE KINKS) never (!) really caught the public's ear or imagination. And I couldn't understand why. People's expectations were different back then-really open to new and different musical experiences. People in those days were willing to go wherever the music took them. But somehow it didn't happen for THE MOVE. The live "Fields of People"-curiously it's more unique sounding now than back then.

For those who've only heard THE MOVE on their studio recordings, this set is an eye-opening extension of those albums. Live, in the heart of hippie-jam-band-land, we hear the band incorporating snatches of various musical styles-not in a loose, meandering jam style, but tightly arranged playing and singing. But what's truly amazing is not the tightness of the band, but the energy that pours out like an open faucet. Repeat listening reaps more rewards each time you hear this fantastic band live, and in their prime.

The band had their own great, idiosyncratic lyrics, arrangements that incorporated both rock and classical elements, good powerful vocals, and an even more powerful instrumental sound. Perhaps they were too English-their albums (like THE KINKS) always seemed to have a feeling of fun mixed with witticism and firepower. But live, they were another story. On a good night (and I only heard them this one time), magnify everything I wrote about the band's strengths several times. For me, they represented the quintessential English band. "Cherry Blossom Clinic Revisited", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow" (both here), just sounded so gloriously, slightly off-kilter, slightly tongue in cheek, English. Throw in some great (and broad ranging) cover tunes (folk singer Tom Paxton, anglophiles THE NAZZ, among others), and you have the makings for an exciting listening experience.

And that's what you have here-idiosyncratic, exciting r 'n' r from a band that should've been near the top of the heap of great English bands of the 60's. But it's not too late-give yourself some time and slip back to 1969. After listening to this you'll begin to understand (unless you're already a fan) why the band's name was so perfect. If your tastes run toward great r 'n' r mixed with a lot of "Englishness", this is for you. Oh yeah, like it says in the notes-it sounds even better loud.

"Three weeks in America for THE MOVE was quite enough for us". Bev Bevan. Luckily we have this concert as proof.

Not Quite Live at Leeds.... 14 May 2012
By goozemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Researching this and reading the reviews, I was expecting a rock and roll document on par with Live at Leeds, Get Yer Ya Ya's Out, or Allmans Live at Fillmore. When I played the first tune, a Nazz cover, I thought it just may be right up there, it indeed rocks and the riff is awesome. Unfortunately, it's quite sporadic from then on, and overall i'd say it's average at best, but doesn't really solidify that the Move were the great live band everyone is harping about. The second disc has a sitar (or whatever the hell it is) solo that goes on way too long, a few crappy tunes, and really doesn't start to kick until the fourth tune "Under the Ice". So overall, an interesting listen for Move fans, but don't expect the fire and brimstone of other 1969-era live albums such as the ones mentioned above.
