Move

Very smart clean vinyl housed in a nice flipback gloss cover having minor ring wear.

Move is the debut album by The Move, released on the Regal Zonophone label. The only one which was recorded by the group’s initial line-up before bassist Ace Kefford left, it includes both sides of their third and fourth singles ("Flowers in the Rain" and "Fire Brigade"). "Flowers in the Rain" was the first ever song played on Radio 1 in September 1967 by Tony Blackburn.

The album consisted of Roy Wood originals, and three cover versions that had featured prominently in their live set. "Weekend" was an Eddie Cochran song, and "Hey Grandma" had originally been recorded by US psychedelic band Moby Grape. "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" was an old James F. Hanley standard, with an arrangement copied from The Coasters.
