The Move – The Best Of The Move

The Move - The Best Of The MoveFor those interested in the Move’s single releases, there’s no better introduction than this. It features such classics – trust me, even if you’ve never heard of the Move before now, they were classics – as “Blackberry Way” (an atypically Beatle-ish tune from Roy Wood, which also turned out to be the Move’s first and only U.K. #1 single), the trippy “I Can Hear The Grass Grow”, the raunchy (and badly-mixed) “Fire Brigade”, and the first song ever played on BBC Radio 1, “Flowers In The Rain”. It’d be hard for me 3 out of 4to pick a favorite out of all these. Some of the sound quality and mixing – again singling out “Fire Brigade” – are less than spectacular, but these songs do come from the late 60s and early 70s, and not everybody had access to Abbey Road Studios.
