A great band who created some classic songs in the 60's and 70's. This album has nearly all of there biggest hits on it. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The early Who, early Small Faces, Strawberry Alarm Clock, the song Penny Lane all had their roots in this group! 9 Mar. 2013
By Dale Bach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The early Who, early Small Faces, Strawberry Alarm Clock, the song Penny Lane all had their roots in this group ---formed by the major songwriters of, what later became, the Electric Light Orchestra. How could it miss! How could America have missed this super group? (I suppose after the "British Invasion" carrying the likes of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Who, Kinks, Hollies, etc to our borders ---the American music industry must have panicked and "tightened security" ---at least that's my wild conspiracy theory. How else does this group remain so obscure with so much raw talent?

5.0 out of 5 stars Pre-ELO fun 13 Jun. 2010
By Martin H. Franzen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For those who want to see where ELO came from, this fusion of late-1960s pop and psychedelia is a great place to start. Catchy tunes, experimental songs and lots of bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars PSYCHEDELIC POWER-POP at its FINEST! 24 Jan. 2000
By Henry R. Kujawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to be objective here; MOVE as been one of my all-time favorite albums now for over 20 years! The original "super-group" (in the true sense of the word), The Move was made up of 5 of the best musicians from the 4 best (but unsuccessful) bands in Birmingham. Led by writer-producer-multi-instrumentalist ROY WOOD and (early on) lead singer CARL WAYNE, they were extremely popular & successful in England in the late 60's. But they never MADE it in America! Which is a shame, because every song on the disc is a standout. The powerful opener "Yellow Rainbow" (which warns of nuclear fallout & contains some of BEV BEVAN's most exciting drumming); "Kilroy Was Here" (a tribute to graffiti artists); "(Here We Go Round) The Lemon Tree" (the silly lengths some will go to to impress a girl!); "Weekend" (an Elvis-style rock & roller); "Walk Upon The Water" (please don't drink & drive); "Flowers In The Rain" (a #1 hit in the UK and deservedly so). Even "Zing Went the Strings Of My Heart" (a 1929 song played with a late-50's arrangement-- a double-anachronism-- with a Ted Cassidy-inspired vocal tacked on for really perverse measure!). And on it goes. The Move eventually "evolved" into The Electric Light Orchestra-- and THIS is where it all REALLY started! Amazingly enough, the ELO album this reminds me of the most is OUT OF THE BLUE-- except for the strings being studio musicians.
Since the still-recent 3-CD box set MOVEMENTS, several packages have been released, most with bonus tracks, and this is no exception. But I'd personally recommend the box set, as it has everything from their first 3 albums and more, and the 2 45s "Night Of Fear" (which includes the "1812 Overture" as its base line) & "I Can Hear The Grass Grow" (with more of Bevan's best-ever drumming) are at the beginning where, chronologically, they really belong. And, if this is your thing, I'd also recommend TOMORROW, THE BEST OF MANFRED MANN, THE COMPLETE EPISODE SIX and The Beatles' MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. (Now, when will The Banana Splits be put on CD?)

5.0 out of 5 stars the great debut from the brilliant english group 17 Aug. 2001
By Stephen F Mulcahy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is an excellent debut record that also includes their early singles, outtakes, etc. the move were an incredible band, among the best of their era. these early recordings are a lot poppier than their later excursions into psychedelia, heavy metal, classical rock etc. i think the stuff that they did on shazam, message from the country, etc. is their best, but it is all great. i would probably give both shazam and message from the country an a+, and this debut and looking on an a or a- for a grade, quite simply, this band's entire output is essential. this first album features a few fine covers: moby grape's brilliant 'hey grandma' from their outstanding debut, and 'weekend' by eddie cochran, who was a big influence on this band. there is also a bizarre rendition of the old standard 'zing went the strings of my heart'! , lead vocals are sung by the band's drummer, bev bevan- with his strange deep voicehe sounds like a troll on this cut. the originals are excellent late sixties pop , such as the big hit 'fire brigade', 'here we go round the lemon tree' (which was covered by jeff lynne's fine band the idle race-jeff would, of course, join a later move lineup), 'useless information'( a quite satirical look at junk culture with witty lyrics from roy wood), and cherry blossom clinic, the most psychedelic song on this album- it would be redone on the shazam album with incredible results. the band plays extremely well together, and the move featured several great vocalists , their harmonizing was superb as well. the lyrics are quite good , too and this debut certainly belongs in the collection of fans of this band and the offshoot bands, 60's enthusiasts, and anyone who likes british music of the era.
