The Move's last album for EMI was released on 26 February
1970 on Regal Zonophone SLRZ 1012. This definitive edition
has been digitally remastered for the first time ever from the
original masters (found in A&M's tape archive in 2007)
while music cut from previous CD editions is reinstated.
Time Tomorrow: The B-side to July 1969's 'Curly'
single, this pastoral-sounding Dave Morgan song could almost
have been an outtake from The Beatles' 'White Album'. New
bassist Rick Price handled the vocal, Roy Wood played
at being Jimi Hendrix on the fade.
Certain Something: Originally begun at Olympic Studios
in April, this is the second recording on 19 June 1968 from Trident
Studios, co-produced by Denny Cordell and Tony Visconti
(who also contributed the orchestral arrangement - note the similarities
with his later work for T. Rex.) This version has been mixed to
stereo from the original multitrack session tape.
Rumoured - incorrectly - to have been about Carl Wayne's
pet pig. Roy Wood played the distinctive recorder part while Carl
Wayne grimaced his way through the chorus: "Curly, where's
your girly, where's she gone?". "It
was very poppy," concedes Rick Price, "more
in the style of a band like Honeybus. It was Roy trying to do
something different as usual."
Tiger Woman (stereo mix):
Originally titled 'Wild Tiger Woman Blues', the version
released as a 45 was a production room mess with Denny Cordell
leaving mid-session. It was left to engineer Glyn Johns
to bring some sense of order to the proceedings, though the resulting
single is without doubt The Move's most wild and wayward single.
This newly mixed stereo version from the original session tape,
brings an added clarity to what was the band's most adventurous
and extraordinary failure. Ace session man Nicky Hopkins
guested on piano.
(full-length version): This lost Move classic, recorded
on 21 March 1968 at Olympic Studios, was hidden away on the flipside
of 'Wild Tiger Woman'. Mixing to stereo from the original session
multitrack tape has restored the song to its full length, revealing
its West Coast-style wah-wah fadeout in full.
With its strong, blueswailing Carl Wayne vocal, this Dave Morgan-penned
song was released as an A-side in America while Italy got its
own specially recorded Italian-language version. This original
Penny Music demo, featuring Trevor Burton on some
incredible bluesy guitar licks and Uglys (and future Wizzard
drummer) Keith Smart, though, is dramatically different.
Time Tomorrow (demo version):
Another Penny Music skeleton song, this sparser version of the
Curly B-side finds Carl Wayne handling the vocals.
Way (alternate mix):
A rare mix of the definitive Move 45, previously unheard on CD.
How about "Boats on a lake/Unattended now/The laughter
drowned" for enigmatic pop lyricism?
