INTRO

"There's 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…." Jeff Lynne, May 1970



Originally 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.

Salvo, 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.



Following the stunning reissues for 'Move', 'Shazam' and 'Flowers In The Rain', Grammy award-winning art director Rachel Gutek has created another beautifully designed package for this new edition of 'Looking On'. Newly restored original artwork is housed in a deluxe digipack with 16-page colour booklet containing rare and previously unseen photos (many supplied by Move members themselves). Detailed and authoritative sleeve notes are again by Mojo's Mark Paytress and include band interviews plus track-by-track commentary.



Every copy ordered from the SHOP will come with TWO EXCLUSIVES Move Collectors Edition Postcards (no.4) and MOVE STICKERS - while stocks last!
