Songfacts®:

  • After signing their first contract in December 1966 (on the back of a topless model), The Move released their first single "Night Of Fear." Backed by "Disturbance," this Roy Wood composition launched his career. Although The Move lasted only about seven years from their formation in 1965, multi-instrumentalist Wood went on to carve out a name for himself as a producer and arranger in addition to songwriting and performing. >>
