DRR Show Pick of the Month: The Move - Live at the Fillmore 1969
July 12, 2018 Dangerous R&R Show
Ok......so it's not a new show but we'll be back next week....so stay tuned! Just to keep the vibe going I'm uploading a live show from one of my favorite bands of the 60's...The Move [I have many but Roy Wood and his band of Brummies won out this time]. I love the SHAZAM period of The Move and this live show encapsulates some of the songs from it while paying homage to Todd Rundgren's genius. The show opens with Rundgrens' early band The Nazz's "Open My Eyes"....what a great cut! Brilliant!....they slow it down with a heavy version of Brill Building Soundsmiths, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil's "Don't Make My Baby Blue". Some light humor with "Cherry Blossom Clinic" puts you on the analyst's couch for "The Last Thing On My Mind" which was written by folk staple Tom Paxton. "I Can Hear The Grass Grow" is one of the greatest singles ever....the only other version that comes close is The Blues Magoos version! Lightening the mood is a version of Ars Nova's "Fields of People"....a really good song no matter who does it. "Goin' Back" was written by Gerry Goffin & Carol King and The Move do it justice....I think the first version of this was done by Goldie & The Gingerbreads but that needs some fact checking for sure...and hey!.....Freddy Mercury recorded a version of this under the name of LARRY LUREX in 1973 with Roger Taylor & Brian May......back to SHAZAM with "Hello Suzie"....which is just about everyone's favorite...and they end the show with another NAZZ song "Under The Ice" from NAZZ II... Well I hope you forgive me for not laying down any vocal tracks and I hope you enjoy this live show!
