||“Carl and I met and fell in love in 1969. Just a few weeks after meeting Carl, he went on tour to America with The Move. This album is the result. We went on to have a long and happy life together until his untimely death in 2004. I would like to thank Roy, Bev and Rick and dedicate this album to our dear son Jack.” Sue Wayne, October 2011
THE ONLY COMPLETE MOVE CONCERT IN EXISTENCE!
With the full cooperation and permission of Carl’s widow Sue, the master tapes from The Move’s shows at the Fillmore West have been restored, remastered and released in memory of The Move’s dynamic front man and lead singer.
“The Move were always one of my favourite bands as a kid. I loved all the singles, so unique in musical terms and Roy's song writing. I'm excited as a Move fan to hear any live stuff!” Paul Weller, Nov 2011
Thought lost for over 30 years, the master tapes were saved by Carl Wayne but suffered technical problems and could not be released. Thanks to advances in studio technology, Carl began restoring the tapes in 2003. Sadly Carl died in 2004 & was never able to complete the live album he believed would show how incredible The Move was as a live band.
"The Move were one of my absolute all time favourite 60's bands!"
Tony Iommi, Black Sabbath, Nov 2011
