The Move’s chaotic career was spiralling and fans’ favourite Ace Kefford had left: “We were just fading out to be honest,” says Bev. But Shazam still remains a crucial ’60s album and one of his favourites.
Bev Bevan says:
“My favourite Move album, I like everything on there, particularly for the drum sound. There’s some complicated stuff with tasty fills. On Fields Of People there are really fast rolls and listening to it again I think ‘wow, that’s good!’ [laughs] Don’t Make My Baby Blue was me playing hard and heavy, which I really love.”
“We did our only trip to America with the Move and I bought a Slingerland kit from Manny’s in New York. I was a big Buddy Rich fan and he played Slingerlands then. A couple of years later, when ELO made it, I got sponsored by Slingerland. The beautiful white pearl Slingerland kit I have now was made for ELO Part II.”
