The extended remastered version of the 1968 album contains some of the most interesting music of that era. Besides the the original 13 tracks of the album 22 extra tracks have been added - the early pre-album singles, and handful of outtakes, and newly created stereo mixes of most of the album tracks.
To my ears they have never sounded better than on these newly remastered tracks.
The original album which was originally delayed several times contains their two big hits "Flowers in the Rain" and "Fire Brigade" along with at least 4 other potential hit-recordings; "Walk Upon the Water", "Yellow Rainbow", "The Lemon Tree" and "Useless Information" - all great orignal songs from guitarist and songwriter Roy Wood. Moreover it has three slower melodic; almost folky, tracks in "Kilroy Was Here", "Mist on a Monday Morning" and "The Girl Outside" - the first two really outstanding.
There is also the controversal "Cherry Blossom Clinic", was at a certain point was planned as their fourth single - but was dropped due to scandals in connections in the promotion of "Flowers in the Rain" - the band could not afford more scandals. The B-side "Vote for Me" was not even included on the album - fortunately it has now found its place on the album.
The least interesting tracks on the album are the three covers - "Hey Grandma", "Zing Went the String" and "Weekend" - though none of them are bad at all.Read more ›
It's actually quite surprising that the master tapes were recovered for this reissue. With many albums of this sort, the masters have been lost or even destroyed in some cases. I mean this isn't "Sgt. Pepper" we're talking about where the masters were kept in a shrine for preservation! However, after intense research, the master tapes were found and make this reissue sound better than any previous release of it.
The digipak case is gorgeous with vibrant color photos of the band when opened. The booklet included is very informative and packed with more rare photographs.Read more ›

if you're a Move fan, you already own some form of this on CD. Buy this one anyway, as it truly blows away the sound quality of all the other versions (in the prefered mono mix). Read morePublished on February 21, 2013 by Douglas Snyder
There was a time (about 1967-1968) when the Move were right up there with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. All of their best songs are on this CD.Published on February 5, 2013 by Jannishboy

This is what happens when knuckleheads have the money to buy the rights to remaster and/or remix original recordings and have no recording knowledge though they think they have. Read morePublished on March 11, 2012 by HershonJones

I love this album. Great for fans of The Move, and maybe as good to become familiar with their British prog-rock, quirky, psychedelic sound. Melodic and catchy with witty lyrics. Read morePublished on August 4, 2008 by A Music Lover
