SHAZAM is the second album by The Move, released in the UK in February 1970. The LP marked a bridge between the band's quirky late '60s pop singles and the progressive, long-form style of Roy Wood's next project, the Electric Light Orchestra. It was the last Move album to feature the group's original lead vocalist, Carl Wayne.
This may be more Move than the casual fan wants, but it's not just another rehashed collection. From the remastered sound to the presence of various outtakes (including lost live tracks), the 30th anniversary triple-disc Movements is as definitive a set as we'll ever have on this band, containing everything except for the Message From the Country album…
24 tracks. Shazam! features two dozen vocal-free (give or take the occasional rebel yell etc) nuggets written by the great Lee Hazlewood. Star of the show is twang master Duane Eddy with three great tracks: the title number, the menacing 'Stalkin' and 'This Town', a lesser-known 45 from Hazlewood's stint writing and producing gems for Nancy Sinatra and others at Reprise Records. Other key artists include guitar wiz Al Casey, top Wrecking Crew drummer Hal Blaine, renowned arranger,orchestra leader Jack Nitzsche and ace surf combo the Astronauts, not forgetting Dick Dale with his axe-shredding version of 'Angry Generation'.
Reissue of 1974 compilation album for the Harvest label by British rock group that featured pre-E.L.O. members Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan and Roy Wood. 11 tracks, including 'Do Ya', 'Chinatown' and 'California Man'.
The Move's debut album expanded to a deluxe 2 CD set. Features four Top 5 hits (including Flowers In the Rain) and a wealth of previously unreleased tracks including brand new stereo mixes of the entire album. Remastered from original master tapes by Rob Keyloch at Church Walk Studio, the music here has never sounded better. Stylish double digipack with 20 page booklet designed by Grammy award winner Rachel Gutek and containing rare and previously unseen photographs plus detailed, authoritative notes by Mojo's Mark Paytress. In short it was pop psychedelic masterpiece and Salvo is now proud to present the most comprehensive and beautifully realised reissue of 'Move' yet. Immaculately remastered and expanded to a 90-minute deluxe 2-CD set, it is sure to get the band's existing fans, as well as 60s pop and psychedelic rock enthusiasts in a lather. It includes the classic hits 'Flowers In the Rain', 'Fire Brigade', 'I Can Hear The Grass Grow' and 'Night Of Fear', rare B-sides and a wealth previously unreleased songs.
Digitally remastered expanded edition of the final Move album that included Bev Bevan, Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne, who would eventually disband the group to form Electric Light Orchestra. Amid the 9 added bonus tracks are the original single plus an alt version of "Do Ya", one of the groups last recordings that would become a hit for ELO later in the decade. This edition is released in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the group's signing to EMI Records.
