Ace Kefford was the Bass Plyaer in the Move before leaving in 1968, he has had his problems since then But is now back. In 2003 while researching for Move album master tapes the Master tapes for the bulk of this album were found and now with Ace's help these have been released as 'Ace the Face'
This album is divided up into two parts the unreleased album and the ‘previously released’ tracks; Of the unreleased album tracks, this could have been a great album in the sixties, the music and production are definitely of that era, and that is not a bad thing. There are plenty of highlights, ‘White Mask’ stands out there is a subtlety to the song which beleighs the content. The song ‘Infanta Marina’ seems to have stuck in my head, and I love ‘Trouble in the Air’. A great many of these songs could have featured on a Move album without being out of place.
The Ace Kefford Stand tracks are brilliant and this band could have rivalled The Move live, there is a certain power in the songs, I would have loved to see this band live. Highlights are, For your Love (Stereo) really comes alive when the guitar solo happens nice arrangement of a song I know as a Yardbirds classic. ‘This World’s an Apple’ Groovy baby.
The Rockstar tracks sound remarkably like Ziggy Stardust era Bowie and again worth the price of the disc alone.
Lastly there is 'William Chalkers Time Machine' a lost Psych gem. who knows what else is included as a bonus lets just say the last track is very long.

It is a very good collection of music from the former Move bass man , it was shame he left the Move in the first place, but he had some sort of nervous problems . Later he formed his own band The Ace Kefford Stand and in 1969, released a cover of the Yardbirds song "For Your Love" with which he made an appearance on Top Of The Pops. It failed to chart , it may be because the record company pulled the single early before many were sold. however it is included here along with songs intended for a debut album. an album which was not released due Ace's continuing problems. This is probably why this is the only collection of material he ever did,which is such a shame because he had talent. This collection is well worth the money I spent and any Move fans or fans of the 60's should consider this CD.

Ah yes...Ace Kefford – The Move never really recovered from his departure in 1968, and sadly Ace never really recovered from his demons that led to said departure. He was part of that great Move front-line with Roy, Carl and Trev – great soulful voice, great bass player and with his sunken cheek-boned face and blonde hair, easily the best looking. So with all this in mind I had high hopes for this ‘unreleased’ LP, having only heard Ace Kefford Stand’s ‘For Your Love’ from his post-Move work.

For me, ‘FYL’ is the best track on this compilation. Only problem is you may get sick of hearing it ; it appears in three versions – stereo, demo and (hidden-last-track) mono. The other four tracks included by AKS (including a blisteringly on-form Cozy Powell) are all quite impressive, and suggest a group in sync with late 60’s hard rock. But Ace was not strong enough to sustain it, and as the booklet informs us, he endured a personal hell for many years after. Sadly, it’s the unreleased ‘solo’ LP that disappoints. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to actually hear this stuff, considering it was long thought lost forever, and it boasts great production from Tony Visconti (and Ace himself helped mix it for CD release). Some vocals are very Winwood-esque, as Ace himself freely admits, the lead track ‘Oh Girl’ is reminiscent of Traffic’s ‘Dear Mr Fantasy’, and is actually really good. Also really good is ‘Trouble in the air’, which boasts a good riff and is quite rocky and has a good edgy vocal. The rest however are rather so-so, mostly quieter songs that don’t suit his vocal style, and the truly awful ‘Infanta Marina’ with its woeful vibrato vocal (what was he thinking?). And ‘Happy Hour’ is really just a novelty track, fairground organ and background shouting – hardly essential.

Anyone familiar with the Ace Kefford story would love this - a very talented and charismatic bass player/vocalist/songwriter. Just have a look on YouTube at the live performance of 'I can hear the grass grow' to see how good he was and the integral part he played in The Move - they lost most of their 'oomph' when he left. Thank you Ace Kefford for great memories and hope you're enjoying a more peaceful life now that you're not being hounded by 'fans' trying to pull you to bits.
