Magnetic Waves Of Sound – The Best Of The Move in January

The beauty of specialized labels with plenty of funding is that can count on getting quality reissues of albums that you were aware of, but not many others. With an umbrella label like Cherry Red UK, we seem to do pretty well with getting some good stuff. Like albums from The Move. Cherry Red has been busy with newly remastered and expanded editions of music from The Move catalog. Having finished those, it’s nice to see it capped with a 2disc ‘best of’, Magnetic Waves Of Sound. This set was announced a few months ago.

Magnetic Waves Of Sound – The Best Of The Move will be released on January 27.  It will offer 21 tracks total from the band’s four albums, including their UK hit singles. The included DVD will feature 21 telly appearances on the BBC and selected German shows, as well as a promo clip, all between 1967 and 1970 before he dissolution of the band.

The set will add in a booklet with photos, an essay by Mark Paytress (MOJO magazine), and a poster. The entire set is contained within a tastefully designed digipak case.

 

Two (More) The Move Reissues From Esoteric In May

Esoteric Recordings will continue to update The Move catalog with new announcements of two more titles. The upcoming Move sets to be remastered and expanded by the brilliant and innovative UK record label offshoot of Cherry Red will be Looking On, released in 1970, just mere months past its predecessor, Shazam, also released in 1970. The other title is the live EP Move package released in 1968. That Move set is called Something Else From The Move and featured five live tracks including a great cover of “So You Want To Be A Rock n Roll Star”.

On May 27, both Move albums will be reissued in 2CD packages and bursting with bonus tracks, posters, expanded booklets with restored original artwork, essays, and new remastering.

Looking On will add in fourteen extra tracks that include BBC interview segments, alternate takes, a B-side track (“Lightnin’ Never Strikes Twice”), and more.

[UPDATE] Two Move Albums Remastered And Expanded – FULL Details

The Move, while a popular UK band, is best known as the precursor to the arrival of Electric Light Orchestra. Within its ranks, The Move incubated Roy Wood, Bev Bevan, and even – for a short period – Jeff Lynne. It wasn’t long after the arrival of Jeff Lynne that the idea of bringing together a Pop/Rock style with classical overtones (unlike Yes, or The Moody Blues) formulated by Roy Wood, would be put into motion in the form of a crafty indicator moniker of Electric Light Orchestra and a fleshed out band that included The Move’s drummer, Bev Bevan. Where ELO went from there is easily known history. What is not as well known outside the sphere of serious ELO fans is the Move.

The Move enjoyed a short but engaging history with its UK fans. Assembled in the mid-’60s, The Move, under the guidance of the immensely talented Roy Wood, enjoyed success with the issue of its self-titled debut (1968). Not long after, the band released their sophomore album, Shazam (1970). Both albums are classic documents of a band that was as impressive as anything being released at the time.

In celebration of both those gems, UK reissue label, Esoteric Records, will release two multi-disc Remastered and Expanded of both titles.

The Move will be reissued in a 3CD Deluxe set. The followup album, Shazam, will be reissued on a 2CD Deluxe set. Both sets will be housed in a digipak package. Both sets are planned for reissue on April 29 in the UK. The album reissues are detailed below:

The first album by The Move will be a visit to the Mono mix of the original LP. That remastered mix will be augmented by the inclusion of 52 bonus tracks, five of which have never been released. Those unreleased tracks are music from a regional  radio broadcast. Of those 52 tracks, 19 of them are BBC sessions tracks dating from January 1967 through January 1968. The artwork from the original album will be fully restored for this edition. The included booklet will contain a new essay on the band and this album period. A poster is also included!
