A big step up from the BBC Sessions discs released for ELO, the recordings heard on The Move's BBC Sessions album are noticeably different from the final versions which made it to the albums, and there's a healthy selection of cover tunes which have never been released on record before. A true testament to the legend of the Move's live act.

The Move ROCK on my Favorite BBC album! 4 Feb 2000
By Henry R. Kujawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a MOVE fan starved for any "new" material, the release of this-- an entire album of previously-unreleased recordings-- was a JOY! It was the habit of the BBC to have bands record exclusive versions of songs just for airplay (the equivalent of appearing live on Letterman, I guess). While some BBC records show the limitations of their studio-- THIS isn't one of them! Starting with "You Better Believe Me" (perhaps the only song from their formative "R&B" phase, before the onset of the psychedelic era a few months later) the songs are a mix of Move tunes & covers of other bands' songs. Many of these are a revelation, as songs like "Night Of Fear" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", stripped of the overdubbed studio strings, are MORE powerful than the "regular" versions! It's one highlight after another here: "Walk On The Water", "Morning Dew" (also covered, perhaps better, by Episode Six), "It'll Be Me" (giving Jerry Lee Lewis a run for his money), "Kentucky Woman", "Higher And Higher", "Long Black Veil" (referenced in the lyrics of "Do Ya"), "Piece Of My Heart", "Going Back", "California Girls", and "The Christian Life". TREMENDOUS! (I have an earlier version of this CD titled BLACK COUNTRY ROCK with one extra song, "Sounds Of Silence"; I suspect it was left off here for its poor sound quality-- not that it ever bothered ME!)

a move fan's dream 10 Sep 2001
By Stephen F Mulcahy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
the sound on this release is generally quite good considering the technology available during the period-this is a lot better than the 2cd bbc recordings of david bowie that came out a while back. the move (as always) do interesting to great renditions of other people's songs. many of their early hits and tracks off of the first move album are also included. hopefully, some material from the shazam, looking on, and message from the country albums will also emerge. i'm also hoping that the long-rumored 2cd set of their fillmore west appearances of october 1969 will also be released soon. there's fine versions of the 60's standard morning dew (covered by millions in the 60's) , long black veil, california girls, and other great interpretations. an essential purchase for any fan of this stellar and influential band.

They don't make 'em like the Move anymore 7 July 2001
By Jim Basehor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The reviewer of the All Music Guide cited the eclecticism of this collection as one of the band's flaws - when it is actually one of their greatest strengths. Few bands today can write great original songs and perform a wide variety of cover material with such strength. They seem to cover the big hip hits of their day (probably due to their brief stint as a "cabaret" band), so there are versions of Band, Janis Joplin, Jackie Wilson, and Beach Boys songs along with some covers of "underground" acts like Moby Grape, Love, and the Fairport Convention. On top of it all, Roy Wood was a great songwriter himself, so those great Move originals (that were huge hits in England) like "Blackberry Way", "Fire Brigade", "Night of Fear", and "Flowers In The Rain", are here. Essential classic rock - and this is a fine place to learn about this unsung (in the US) gem of a band.
