The Move

The Move - The BBC Sessions [LIVE] (1967-1968)

Reviewer: Henry R. Kujawa from Amazon.com

As a MOVE fan starved for any "new" material, the release of this-- an entire album of previously-unreleased recordings-- was a JOY! It was the habit of the BBC to have bands record exclusive versions of songs just for airplay (the equivalent of appearing live on Letterman, I guess). While some BBC records show the limitations of their studio-- THIS isn't one of them! Starting with "You Better Believe Me" (perhaps the only song from their formative "R&B" phase, before the onset of the psychedelic era a few months later) the songs are a mix of Move tunes & covers of other bands' songs. Many of these are a revelation, as songs like "Night Of Fear" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", stripped of the overdubbed studio strings, are MORE powerful than the "regular" versions! It's one highlight after another here: "Walk On The Water", "Morning Dew" (also covered, perhaps better, by Episode Six), "It'll Be Me" (giving Jerry Lee Lewis a run for his money), "Kentucky Woman", "Higher And Higher", "Long Black Veil" (referenced in the lyrics of "Do Ya"), "Piece Of My Heart", "Going Back", "California Girls", and "The Christian Life". TREMENDOUS! (I have an earlier version of this CD titled BLACK COUNTRY ROCK with one extra song, "Sounds Of Silence"; I suspect it was left off here for its poor sound quality-- not that it ever bothered ME!)
