Move. The - Message From The Country (1971)

The fourth and final album from this English band.

The band was a trio with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, woodwinds, piano, electric piano and vocals.

Bev Bevan, Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne. That was the members of this band on the final album of The Move. Three legends in their own right. 

The Move and this album was the forerunner for Electric Light Orchestra. Ditto for the previous The Move album. 

The music on this album is a mix of rock'n'roll and whimsical pop rock. It is pretty artistic with the exception of the rockabilly track which feels more like a throwaway track.

The result is a pretty whimsical weird album which gave notice of what was coming from these three musicians on the following albums. Both bands and solo albums.

This is a pretty good album in it's own right, just sabotaged a bit by the pretty poor rockabilly.

2.5 points
