much more variation in The Move's music now, and I think the
LP is going to help a lot of people to realise this. It's
not really a change of image to get the underground audiences.
It's just the stuff that Roy and I are writing is a change
from what The Move used to do
Lynne, May 1970
released in December 1970, 'LOOKING ON'
was the third album by The Move and the first to feature
ex-Idle Race frontman and future ELO-leader JEFF
LYNNE. It saw ROY WOOD, BEV BEVAN, RICK PRICE
& Lynne at the peak of their musical imagination, embracing
the era's hard rock and progressive inclinations to deliver the
most epic-sounding Move album of them all.
in partnership with Fly Records, continue The Move's
40th Anniversary Series with 'Looking
On'. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes
for the first time ever by Rob Keyloch at Church Walk
Studio and Nick Robbins at Sound Mastering Ltd
and approved by Roy Wood, this is the most immaculate sounding
reissue of 'Looking On' EVER and comprehensively documents the
beginning of the Roy Wood / Jeff Lynne partnership that resulted
in the Electric Light Orchestra.
