Live'r than you'll ever be, from 1968 at the legendary Marquee Club, please enjoy in breathless wonder the original five-piece incarnation of The Move and a blistering cover of Eddie Cochran's "Something Else."
Okay, I'm not sure it's the five-piece -- guitarist Ace Kefford was discharged from his duties in the group around the time this was recorded -- but to my ears it sounds like he's there.
In any case, the track is fricking great.
I actually owned a copy of this EP -- found it in some mom and pop record store in Jersey circa 1972-- and for years, it was among my proudest possessions. If truth be told, BTW, I probably hadn't even heard of the Eddie Cochran original until I bought it.
And in the interest of full disclosure, I should also add that I hadn't heard a note by The Move until I read John Mendelssohn's 1970 review of Shazam in Rolling Stone, and was motivated to seek out the rest of their oeuvre as a result. With life-changing results.
In case I haven't said it before -- thanks, John.
