Esoteric Recordings release of a newly expanded and re-mastered edition of the classic 1968 live recordings made by The Move at the legendary Marquee Club in London. Of all of the groups to emerge in Britain in the latter half of the 1960s, The Move was arguably one of the finest. A powerful act on stage, the group was blessed with one of the most imaginative songwriters of his generation in Roy Wood. On 27th February 1968 the Move staged a concert at The Marquee Club with the intention of recording the concert for release as a live record. Due to technical issues, some of the material recorded was deemed to be unsuitable for release. In an attempt to rectify this, a further concert at The Marquee was recorded on 5th May. In the period between the first and second concert, Chris 'Ace' Kefford had departed the fold, with guitarist Trevor Burton assuming bass guitar duties. After some repair work on five tracks, a seven-inch EP (playing at 33 rpm) was issued in June 1968 under the title 'Something Else from The Move'. In 2007 the original multi-track master tapes were re- mixed and pieced together to present as full a record of The Move's Marquee performances as possible. Now these stereo tracks are gathered, along with the five mono mixes that formed the original 1968 EP on a CD version of 'Something Else from the Move'. The release is newly presented in a single digi-pack with illustrated booklet and liner notes.
