Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
Side 2 kicks off with “I’m a Mover” 2.49, the song I was very familiar with from “You can all join in”. This is one of those “perfect” songs, like the Seekers “I’ll never find another you” and Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street”. It seems almost naturally occurring. It is a Rodgers/Fraser number, and is another brilliant example of the accentuated bass setting off Rodgers’ astonishing voice, right from the opening word “Listen!”
Track 2 is another song in the same vein, “The Hunter”, and is the other song on the LP not composed in-house. This is a piece eminently suited to the band, who did a sort of clone of it later called “The Stealer”. It is evidently something of a standard, as Robert Plant includes the main refrain in the epic “How many more times?” on the first Led Zeppelin album.
This LP was turning out to be very good value.
