OK, now Deram was going to start earning it's reputation. Released on Dec 9th, 1966, DM 109 was The Move's first single, "Night Of Fear". This put Deram on the map with their first real charter. And established The Move as a top tier group. One of my regrets is never having seen the 5 man line-up of The Move perform (or any line-up, for that matter). From every indication, they were one of the toughest live bands of that era. I did finally get a chance to see Roy Wood in New York at the Village Underground. As good as it was, it wasn't The Move!
"Buried as the b-side of UK hit "Brontosaurus" is this gem written by Move guitarist Rick Price and Birmingham singer Mike Tyler (aka Mike Sheridan). Unlike practically anything else in the (mostly excellent) Move catalog, this song has all the elements of a perfect single; excellent song, production and incredible hooks and harmonies".
I guess I always assumed Roy had written this one. A lotta talent in that group...
