"Without doubt, it was The Beatles, the Stones and The Move in that order in England." Tony Secunda, Manager & Svengali, The Move 1966-1968

And, without doubt, The Who and The Kinks might have something to say about Secunda's gleefully partisan assessment. But who'd begrudge the late, great Svengali of Swinging London one final flourish of hyperbole four years before his death in 1995. Secunda's point, was that The Move - five Top Five hits during '67 and '68, a better track record than the Stones, Who, Kinks and Small Faces - were in danger of becoming the forgotten men in pop's back pages.

Over fifteen years later, and with the band's frontman Carl Wayne now gone too, The Move's recorded legacy has finally been cleaned up and restored back to its original glory. A full four decades after their pop peak, it's now possible to hear one of the most gifted bands of their generation as they ought to be heard. After years of substandard CD reissues, marked by poor sound and error-filled packaging, Fly Records in association with Salvo Records has enlisted the help of the remaining ex-band members for the meticulously produced 40th Anniversary Move Remaster Series. Do listen carefully. You may even hear the grass grow…

Though it has taken almost 10 years to recover session multitrack and original mono and stereo master tapes, The Move's outstanding debut album is finally here!

MOVE has been remastered by Rob Keyloch and Nick Robbins and expanded to a 2-CD set with rare and previously unreleased material - over 21 bonus tracks and 90 minutes of music! The Regal Zonophone mono LP and single A&B sides have been digitally remastered from the original mono masters for the first time ever while the second CD contains new stereo mixes from session multitrack tapes from Advision, Olympic and De Lane Lea recording studios.

The restored original artwork (including spot vanish effects) and deluxe double digipack look stunning and are by Grammy award-winning art director Rachel Gutek. The 20-page colour booklet contains rare and previously unseen photos by The Move's personal photographer Robert "Bobby" Davidson (plus many from the band members own archives), memorabilia, track information, full credits and recording details (which the original LP omitted) plus in-depth liner notes and interviews by Mojo's Mark Paytress.
