Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1968 debut album by THE MOVE, “Move”. Of all of the groups to emerge in Britain in the latter half of the 1960s, THE MOVE was arguably one of the finest. A powerful act on stage, the group were blessed with one of the most imaginative songwriters of his generation in Roy Wood and a fine vocalist in Carl Wayne, complemented by Bev Bevan (drums), Trevor Burton (guitar) and Ace Kefford (bass).

Released in the UK in April 1968, “Move” followed on from the international success the band had achieved with the classic singles ‘Night of Fear’, ‘I Can Hear The Grass Grow’, ‘Flowers In the Rain’ and ‘Fire Brigade’.

Their first album, “Move”, demonstrated the imaginative diversity of the band and saw them break new ground creatively.

Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this 3 CD Deluxe edition of “Move” focuses on the Mono mix of the album, but has also been expanded to include 52 bonus tracks encompassing stereo mixes of the album tracks, previously unreleased tracks from the band’s very first recording session in January 1966, unreleased tracks from an early appearance on regional radio and 19 tracks drawn from BBC radio sessions recorded between January 1967 and January 1968.

This expanded deluxe edition also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Mark Paytress and also includes a poster.
