Product Description

Product Description

Originally released in December 1970, `LOOKING ON' was the third album by The Move and the first to feature ex-Idle Race frontman and future ELO-leader Jeff Lynne. It saw the band at the peak of their musical imagination, embracing the era's hard rock and progressive inclinations to deliver the most challenging and satisfying Move album of them all.

Superbly remastered and brought to you by Salvo in partnership with Fly Records, `LOOKING ON' has been expanded to 67 minutes with seven bonus tracks, including rare and previously unreleased material, plus the Roy Wood-penned hard rock 45s `Brontosaurus' and `When Alice Comes Back To The Farm'.

Often regarded as the "joker in the pack" in The Move's catalogue with several awe-inspiring progressive rock epics, `LOOKING ON' can also be seen as the most relaxed and confident expression of Move-leader and maverick Roy Wood, re-energised by a new creative foil. Both Lynne and Wood revelled in the musical freedoms `LOOKING ON' gave them, employing a wide array of instrumentation and production ideas to create a progressive rock-era classic. And while doing so, both songwriters were already planning the end of The Move and the beginning of their next project, the Electric Light Orchestra.

Preceding the release of `LOOKING ON' by nine months, the single `Brontosaurus' burned its way up the UK charts to reach no.7 during April 1970. The single paved the way for a minor chart invasion of hard rock singles that year, Jimi Hendrix's `Voodoo Chile', Black Sabbath's `Paranoid' and Deep Purple's `Black Night' among them.

Further `LOOKING ON' highlights include the proto-glam rock `Turkish Tram Conductor Blues', `Open Up Said The World At The Door' with soaring harmonies that foreshadow ELO and the muscular `Feel Too Good', complete with booming drum breaks and P.P Arnold and Doris Troy on backing vocals. The seven bonus cuts are no less interesting, with rare B-side `Lightnin' Never Strikes Twice' leading into a number of high-class outtakes from recently discovered session multitrack tape reels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cinderalla goes to the ball... 27 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Their 'Flowers in The Rain' launching Britain's BBC Radio 1 back in '67, paisley popsters The Move tipped the toys out of the pram in 1970 when they made their most compelling and original album in 'Looking On'. Key changes at play were the swing to more serious 'progressive' sounds and the arrival in Jeff Lynne of a writing partner Roy Wood could really spar with. Left to their own devices in the studio by new label Fly - distracted by ingenue signing Marc Bolan - the two got to work fusing hard rock with doo-wop, bar room boogie and chamber, crossing amplified sawing cello, piping oboes, sitar and squalls of lead guitar, the multi-textured melange driven solidly by the hod-carrying backline of bassist Rick Price and drummer, Bev Bevan while over it all piped the trademark megaphone vocal. The result: dense, melodic, melodramatic - contrived to be both raw and sophisticated. The singles 'Brontosaurus' and 'When Alice Comes Back To The Farm' are respectively lumbering and manic, while the lengthier 'What?' and 'Open up Said The World At The Door' indicate the door marked 'Electric Light Orchestra', a vehicle Lynne would have fired up right away but for contractual obligations. Cheaply-packaged, 'Looking On' limped out and was left. But this top notch reissue more than makes up for the injustice: beautifully re-mastered, lusterous gatefold digi-pack, plenty of period imagery, highly-informed and entertaining notes from Mark Paytress, expanded with studio out-takes and the 'Brontosaurus' B-side. Good-bye 'Blackberry Way' and Hallo 'Mr Blue Sky' by way of 'Paranoid', the Cinderella in The Move catalogue finally goes to the ball.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Move as they have never been heard before! 24 April 2008
By Iain
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is The Move's 3rd album originally released by the group in 1970 and introduces Jeff Lyne to the line up after the departure of Trevor Burton and Carl Wayne.

What makes this newly released reissue stand out is that it is superbly remastered and expanded. The sound quality is simply mind blowing and multi instrumentalists Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's talents are shown off to maximum effect. Full credit must go to all of those involved in producing this cd from the old master tapes.

The material on this album is much heavier than on the group's previous albums and singles and several of the tracks are over 6 minutes in length. The two most well known tracks are "Brontosaurus" and "When Alice Comes Back to the Farm".

The cd is presented in a neat digipak and there is a 16 page booklet full of notes and photographs of the group.

This album is not for those who prefer to remember The Move for their better known singles as the band had moved on a long way from those days.
However this cd is worth buying just for the wonderful sound quality and is a must for fans of Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne. Not long after this album was completed the duo formed The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) before Wood finally split and went off to form Wizzard.

Four hairy, bearded Brummies walk into a studio in 1970, wearing shades (probably).

Bev Bevan (drums & percussion), Rick Price (Bass), Jeff Lynne (piano, guitar, etc.) and Roy Wood (any and every instrument he had at his disposal).

I remember buying this album on vinyl back in the early 1970s. The two singles ('Brontosaurus' and 'Alice') were the heaviest and loudest the Move ever released. I loved the way Roy Wood gave the vocals everything - this before the days vocalists experimented with megaphones. He continued to adopt this style of delivery later on with Until Your Momma's Gone and Wizzard's debut 45, 'Ball Park Incident' amongst other classic Wood compositions.

On first listening, 'Looking On' left me dazed. The only hint that these hit single-makers may head in a darker direction was the blistering 'Hello Suzie' - the opening track on the previous 'Shazam' album.

The opening title track (very Sabbath) and the closing 'Feel Too Good' are epic monsters - both long multi-instrumental songs dominated with heavy guitar riffs and drums. These, and Bev Bevan's 'Turkish Tram Conductor Blues' - again, vocals by Roy Wood along with the two singles are not the whole story, monumental though they are.

This was the first time Jeff Lynne worked in the studio with The Move after Wood finally persuaded him to replace original front man Carl Wayne.

On subsequent plays, I found that the brace of Lynne songs: 'What?' and 'Open Up, Said The World At The Door' balance the whole album with their experimental effects and Jeff's now-familiar voice. A very definite nod to the future ELO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Underrated After All These Years... 13 April 2010
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
With the introduction of Jeff Lynne and the departure of Carl Wayne to cabaret, The Move finally addressed the 1970s with 'Looking On', a powerful collection that picks up where 'Shazam', it's predecessor left off. What Lynne brought to the band was a distinctive new compositional voice, as well as some keyboard expertise that Roy Wood, even allowing for his vast instrumental prowess, simply didn't have.

'Looking On' has been reissued a number of times, but this Salvo edition finally accords it the treatment that the rich musical fare contained within it has always deserved. Tracks such as 'Open Up Said The World At The Door' and 'What' are densely arranged but thrilling prog-rock exercises (but always with a commercial edge), and the hit single', 'Brontosaurus' was always a pleasing hard rock outing that has never sounded better than herein. The failed single, 'When Alice Comes Back From The Farm' anticipates the sound of the ELO with it's cello emebllishments, and although I've never been greatly enamoured of 'Turkish Tram Conductor Blues' and 'Feel Too Good', they do sound much better in the context of the whole album.

Although the album is vastly different from their '68 poppy debut, and their final album, 'Message From The Country', which offered more stylistic range and concise songs, the sandwich filler of the 'Shazam' album, and 'Looking On', offer the listener a lot of tasty musical morsels to chew on. Recommended.
