'The Move Live at the Fillmore 1969' coming in February...

The Move were an outrageous enough live act to witness The Who’s outrageous live act and declare, “Ours will be more outrageous.” By 1969, Roy Wood and the gang were no longer donning pinstripe gangster suits to smash automobiles, televisions, and political effigies with sledgehammers and axes on stage. But they were a tight enough band by that point to render such gimmicky shenanigans obsolete. Now Right Recordings is issuing a double-disc testament to The Move’s live greatness for release on February 13 in the U.K. and February 21 in the U.S. The Move Live at the Fillmore collects a dozen Move classics as well as a bonus recollection of the tour by basso profondo drummer Bev Bevan.

Here’s a little historical information straight from the Right Recordings website:

“Thought lost for over 30 years, the master tapes from The Move’s shows at the Fillmore West were saved by Carl Wayne but suffered technical problems & 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. Now, with the full cooperation & permission of his wife, Sue Wayne, the tapes have been painstakingly restored, remastered & released in memory of The Move’s dynamic front man & lead singer. “
