Who needs another Oasis album - 'SHAZAM' is back, 21 Nov. 2007
The other vinyl album tucked away in the Gallagher brothers LP collection that ISN'T a Beatles record and probably the real influence behind such Oasis concert staples as "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova", The Move's long lost but sadly neglected classic 'SHAZAM' is back.
Perhaps one of the most long awaited and stellar remasters released this year, The Move's long lost and fully restored masterpiece returns to the shelves for a new generation of fans, a sonic smorgasboard of late sixties Brit brand turbine-powered pop, gargantuan sludge metal crunch, take-your-breath-away-oh-so-pretty balladry, ethereal psych-a-delicate classical folk guitar rock wizardry, a raga rock passage Concorded in from the Monterey Pop Festival, and loads and loads of beery good natured Brummy humour, as an identifiable a Move trademark as its big brown purple shake-your-ass-down-to-your-soul bass guitar. Lovingly restored, with a great collection of period photos and knowledgable entertaining essays, this also includes wonderful restored and remastered bonus tracks and alternate takes, such as the number one hit, Blackberry Way and the sexy rocking careening but criminally-neglected should-have-been hit Wild Tiger Woman. A geezer can't go wrong, here.
