4.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Tracks but why include mono as well as sterio versions?, 17 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Move (Deluxe 2-CD Expanded Edition) (Audio CD)
Some great classic Move tracks on this - Cherry Blossom Clinic, Fire Brigade, Kilroy was Here, Lemon Tree, Night of Fear, Mist on a Monday Morning, Walk upon the Water, Yellow Rainbow, I Can Hear the Grass Grow and of course Flowers in the Rain! So many great tracks on the discs that I had forgotten about. I had the original vinyl LP and it was great to revisit these. Not so keen on Weekend and Zing which sound more like Showaddy Waddy tracks. Some tracks benefit from having orchestral instruments added into the mix which was probably innovative at the time.

I don't understand why this is a two CD set. The mono songs (repeated on disc two as sterio versions) are unecessary. Give me sterio versions every time especially since Move tracks are a bit of a wall of sound anyway. A couple of the tracks don't have a sterio version which is disappointing. Perhaps more disappointing is the fact that Blackberry Way was not included as a bonus track.

All in all I am pleased I bought it.

I agree totally, that the original mono tracks are superfluous if GOOD stereo/fake stereo versions (especially new re-masters) are available. I would just play the mono versions the once to compare them with the stereo versions, then never play them again. I've never come across any stereo track that I don't prefer to the mono version; just as I'd always prefer colour TV/colour photos to Black & white/monochrome.

ANY collection of The Move's hits is incomplete without "Blackberry Way" and it is a ridiculous omission. My sister bought me the 7" single of Blackberry Way for my 16th birthday in January 1968; it is a favourite of mine.
