A quick heads up... just got word that the new 11CD Classic Albums Collection from ELO will be PopMarket's Deal of the Day this coming Friday December 30, 2011. The set which regularly goes for $80, will be discounted for those who are either on the fence about it or who would like to buy one as a gift.  At present, it shows $62.99 with free shipping.  The price/shipping deal may vary depending on where you live.

For the record, the old website from Sony now directs you right to this set.

Sound samples now on Amazon UK...

Being released by Right Recordings UK:  Their blurb:

Thought lost for over 30 years, the master tapes from The Move’s shows at the Fillmore West were saved by Carl Wayne but suffered technical problems & could not be released. Thanks to advances in studio technology, Carl began restoring the tapes in 2003. Sadly Carl died in 2004 & was never able to complete the live album he believed would show how incredible The Move was as a live band. Now, with the full cooperation & permission of his wife, Sue Wayne, the tapes have been painstakingly restored, remastered & released in memory of The Move’s dynamic front man & lead singer. 
100 minutes of previously unreleased Move live magic recorded at San Francisco’s Fillmore West. 
Full colour 12-page booklet with rare & unseen photos & memorabilia.
Exclusive commentary, new & archive interviews with members of The Move.
