CD Reviews

One of the best collections if you can find it
Andrew Hammer | 07/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Move is the ultimate cult band, and their work is hard to find. This is one of the most definitive collections if not the most. The problem is that Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne are both so eccentric, and their work spread across different record labels and legal disputes, that the one thing they need to do has not been done: put every bloody thing that was ever recorded by them before 1972 together in one set (Including the 'Holy Grail' of Move/ELO fans, the Idle Race albums. There is a great 2 CD set out there if you can find it, and it's brilliant.)

I've given this five stars mainly because it exists, and if you're a Move fan, you know well what I'm talking about. It's much better to get it all here than in bits and pieces, unless you're trying to collect the original albums as they were (you can do). Still I don't understand the absence of the Message From the Country album from this collection."
Great Overview-- and All of "Looking On," Their Best
Chris Ward | Costa Rica | 07/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Move were sui generis-- nothing before or after remotely like them. Roy Wood, loony genius, wrote most of their stuff, and it's still fresh and fun 35 to 40 years later. Some below maintain that their "Looking On" album is somehow weak-- I couldn't disagree more. I'd call it a masterpiece. It's hard to find these days, but appears here in its entirety on CD 3-- I've listened to it hundred of times (just as I did when it first came out in 1970). Buy this set and then track down "Message From The Country" and you'll have pretty much all you need. Enjoy!"
It's got it All!

"This is a wonderful 3 CD set! I don't know why The Move got so overlooked in America. I mainly bought it for Hello Suzie but I just love every song. I wish it had been one CD longer to have included Message From the Country which is also very enjoyable. Also it has really great pictures of The Move on the liner notes. They were truly the BEST British band ever!"
