This is exciting rock archaeology: two CDs of the best British band most Yanks never heard in the Sixties, caught at a heavy-psychedelia peak on its only U.S. tour. The Move were almost too cool for America, a U.K.-hit-single machine of mod-squad assault, acid-pop eccentricity and, in singer Carl Wayne, white-soul force. These October '69 shows combine guitarist-composer Roy Wood's ingenious takes on madness – "I Can Hear the Grass Grow," "Cherry Blossom Clinic (Revisited)" – with explosive Nazz, Byrds and Tom Paxton covers that will make you wish you'd been there and glad that tape was running.

Listen to "Cherry Blossom Clinic (Revisited)":

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
