Blue Moves
Sealed 1976 2LP Gatefold Original With Custom Song Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. Small Cut Out Hole. “Although Initially Blue Moves (1976) Was Summarily Dismissed By Both Critics As Well As Longtime Enthusiasts, The Double LP Has Since Gained Considerable Stature Within John's Voluminous Catalog. While Comparisons Were Inevitable To The Landmark Two-Disc Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973) Song Cycle, Most Similarities In Musical Style And Content End There. John's Band Had Expanded To Include The Talents Of James Newton Howard (Keyboards/Orchestral Arrangements), Kenny Passarelli (Bass), Roger Pope (Drums), And Caleb Quaye (Guitar) — The Latter Pairing Had Actually Performed With John As Far Back As His First Long-Player, Empty Sky (1968) — As Well As Davey Johnstone (Guitar) And Ray Cooper (Percussion) From The "Classic" Early-To-Mid-'70s Lineup. As The Title Suggests, Blue Moves Is A Departure From The Heavier Rock Of The Westies (1975). Instead, The Album Purposefully Focuses On Moodier And More Introspective Sides — Such As The Single "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" (The Effort's Sole Hit), The Achingly Poignant "Tonight," And "Cage The Songbird," The Latter Of Which Is Particularly Noteworthy As It Recalls The Life Of Edith Piaf In Much The Same Way That "Candle In The Wind" Had Immortalized Marilyn Monroe.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.
