The coolest group Jeff Lynne was in. Quality musicianship throughout. Not enough of a fan base in the States though-so not that influential here.

In fact I believe The Move were one of the most successful British bands at the time who didn't achieve much success in the States.

For some reason The Move never charted in the US until "Do Ya" one of their last singles in the early seventies. They were a very good band and their live shows in England are legendary. I never saw them perform but there are stories that they went crazy on stage and played really loud rock n roll with lots of theatrical props.

They certainly belong in a British RRHOF more than in the US. They spawned the birth of a major UK act that dominated the US for many years, The Electric Light Orchestra.

Never mind Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood Was The Move. A musical genius.
