Walk Upon the Water [*] SHAZAM - Personally, I think Shazam is in competition to be the best British rock album released in the sixties. I'm sure some of you will be offended by that statement, but listen to those six songs in one sitting and tell me you're not impressed. Great music, great vocals, great songs, and a primo psychedelic experience. We start off with a hard rocker, Hello Suzie, and fade into a classic Move ballad, Beautiful Daughter. As the haunting notes of Beautiful Daughter fade away, we hear the footsteps taking us to the neoclassical, brain-spinning Cherry Blossom Clinic. No time to rest after it's orgastic climax, it's onto the Eastern sounds of Fields of People. Then it's back to their early rock roots with the angst-driven Don't Make My Baby Blue. The sequence is topped off with the best version of Tom Paxton's The Last Thing on My Mind ever recorded. Once you've heard it, I defy your mind to think of anything else for the next week. If you're already a Move fan you know what I say is true. If you've stumbled here by accident, have I'll envy you when you hear this audio masterpiece for the first time.

Last Thing On My Mind LOOKING ON - In the wake of The Move's SHAZAM album, singer Carl Wayne departed & leader Roy Wood recorded a solo album, BOULDERS (which saw release in 1973). When he returned, he invited friend Jeff Lynne (who'd replaced him in The Nightriders / The Idle Race) to join, and the 2 hatched the idea of creating a new band to replace The Move, which would include classical instruments and experimental ideas: The Electric Light Orchestra. LOOKING ON was the first result, though their record company (at least temporarily) nixed the idea of a name-change, purely for "commercial" reasons". This is one WILD album. As much of a major shift as SHAZAM was from earlier Move records, LOOKING ON is an even bigger departure. Both Wood & Lynne, whose earlier sound & styles were quite similar, come across doing & sounding almost completely unlike anything either of them had done before! Loud, heavy, ponderous, explosive, and downright bizarre are a few words that come to mind. This album is NOT an easy "first listen"! There's the ominous "Looking On", the growling-yet-bouncy "Turkish Tram Conductor Blues", the ethereal "What?" and the noisy "When Alice Comes Back To The Farm", with its almost honky-tonk piano. Things get extremely strange on Jeff Lynne's "Open Up Said The World To The Door"-- you have to HEAR this one, you still won't believe it! The one almost "normal" track is "Brontosaurus", a single recorded earlier, and I believe the only song here that includes departed bassist Rick Price. "Feel Too Good" makes for a relentless, hard-driving 9-minute finale. (But watch out for the "surprise" epilogue!) I've long considered this a "flawed experiment"; when they returned for their next outing, MESSAGE FROM THE COUNTRY, everything they were working toward seemed to fall in place!
