5.0 out of 5 stars THE MOVE: TOP OF THE TOP OF THE TREE, 27 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Move Anthology (Audio CD)
The Move are represented here in a lavish box with great liners by Mark Paytress
and rare and superb photos by Bobby Davidson.
It is worth the price of admission alone to hear The Move blitzcrieg The Byrd's So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star.
They take the song by the scruff of the neck and totally propel the song into another completely dynamic musical place.
This is taken from their Marquee residency on a Tuesday week night. Added unreleased tracks fill out the show.
All The Move's trademarks are there. Carl Wayne's great lead tenor vocals. Roy Wood's higher tremulous singing,
Ace and Trevor's fine backing vocals plus their soulful and rock and roll sated vocals respectively.
They were a pre-punk Sex Pistols ten years ahead and one can't help feeling
Malcolm Maclaren based his Pistols shtick on The Move's incendiary career.
Along with The Move's debut album presented as a 2 x CD remaster and the deeply beautiful Shazam recording,
this Anthology is required listening.
Big props to Rob Caiger for going the extra mile on these releases.
One waits (probably in vain now)
for The Move;Live At The BBC CD release and a live DVD
Like the band maybe the moment has passed.
This is a shame for the five -piece original Move as I believe no other band
could touch them live in their day
(and I am talking The Who and The Stones too).
A sort of forgotten band and I tried to get nearly every publisher interested in a book
to no avail- they're story seems to slipped through the cracks.
