The Move: 'Curly' (A&M); Thunderclap Newman: 'Something in the Air' (Track)

John Mendelsohn, Rolling Stone, 18 October 1969

MY FELLOW devotees of what is frequently referred to as rock and roll's English sound should, on finishing this sentence, rush out willy-nilly in excited pursuit of two wonderful recent imports from the British charts, the Move's 'Curly' and Thunderclap Newman's 'Something in the Air', both of which guarantee a splendid time for all.
