Message From The Country by The Move
Released: Jan 1971
Label: Parlophone UK
This was the Move's last album, recorded at the same time as ELO's first. Roy Wood and Co. jam the album with references that have scholarly levels of musical smarts. Doo-wop, Jerry Lee Lewis, Southern white gospel, the Beatles, Johnny Cash and Brian Wilson all appear in one song or another amid the always-dense arrangements of Wood and Jeff Lynne. "Do Ya" and the title cut, both written by Lynne, and Wood's "Until Your Mama's Gone" are highlights. Tracks 11 through 15 were the Move's final single, and "Do Ya," later a major hit for ELO, was the Move's only song ever to chart in the U.S.
