1972 US Textured Cover Original. VG++. "The Final Three Top 40 Hits For The Grass Roots Materialize On Move Along, A Consistent Album Under The Aegis Of Original Co-producer Steve Barri With The Band's Future Producers Dennis Lambert And Brian Potter Writing Two Of The New Hits. Slick Arrangements And Big Production Eliminate The Charm Of The Earlier Recordings, Where P.f. Sloan And Steve Barri Gave The Group A Nice Mixture Of The Frosting Poured Atop Once Folky Simon & Garfunkel Tracks By Clive Davis And The Top 40 Shine Mickey Most Gave To Herman's Hermits. That Sloan And Barri Worked On Peter Noone's Hold On Movie Soundtrack, Including Their Composition "A Must To Avoid" And An Earlier Version Of "Where Were You When I Needed You," Is A Little Proof Of How They Steered The Original Grassroots. Peter Noone Hit In January Of 1966 With His Sloan/barri Material, The Grassroots In July Of That Year. The Name Evolved To Separate The Two Words, Becoming The Grass Roots, And Six Years On This Very Formula Album Has Little Surprise And None Of The Sparkle Of The Sloan/barri Days, But It Is Not Without Merit. "Two Divided By Love" Was A Nice Sequel To "Sooner Or Later," Which Was A Nice Sequel To "Temptation Eyes," But The Formula Needed Reshuffling. "The Runway," A Variation On "The Letter" Theme, Is A Clone Of "Two Divided By Love"; It Charted Nine Months After "Two Divided By Love," With The Final Track On This Album, "Glory Bound," Hitting The Top 40 In Between (In March Of 1972). The Big Hook Of "Glory Bound" Sounds Like A Precursor To Latter-day '70s Pop, Surprising In That It Has Elements Of What Lambert/potter Would Bring To The Righteous Brothers In 1974, But This Particular Tune Was The One Co-write By Steve Barri, A Departure From The Cleverness He Brought To Earlier Material. It's A Far Cry From Barri's "Things I Should Have Said," And That's The Problem With Move Along. Where The Fun Of The Early Hits Was Their Diversity And Ingenuity, One Can't Help But Get The Feeling That This Is An Excellent Bar Band That Somehow Got A Recording Contract. Dennis Provisor Wrote Or Co-wrote Six Of The 11 Tracks, Including "Glory Bound," And He Just Doesn't Have The Spirit That Sloan/barri Or Lambert/potter Provide. The Difference Is Staggering. It's Not To Say That A Tune Like "Runnin' Just To Get Her Home Again" By Warren Entner And Dennis Provisor Is That Bad, But When One Realizes That Entner Would Be Managing Quiet Riot A Decade Later, Move Along Is To The First Grassroots Album What The Latter-day Mystery Album By Vanilla Fudge Was To Their Original Disc: A Departure From The Thing That Made The Band So Significant In The First Place. Dennis Provisor Is Not Even Given Credit On The Back Of The Album, Though His Contribution Here Was As Pivotal As Singer Rob Grill And Guitarist Warren Entner. A Better Offering Than The Self-titled Album For Haven/capitol, And Grill Is In Better Voice Than On His Solo Effort, Uprooted. Had They Sought Songs With The Durability Of "The River Is Wide" Or The Charm Of "Bella Linda," It Would Have Been A Plus With The Three Hits Included Here, And Could Have Insured A Better Place In Rock History For This Interesting And Still Listenable Project."

Powers Of The Night
New - LP - 5331
Sealed 1982 Original. “In 1982, Seven Years After The Group Disbanded, And Three Years After He Recorded His Solo Album Uprooted, Rob Grill Reactivated The Grass Roots With Three New Musicians And Cut This Album, Which Must Be Tied With Its Predecessor, The Grass Roots On The Haven Label, As The Most Obscure Album In The Group's Output. That's A Genuine Pity, As The Record Has Lots Of Very Good Moments And Is Far More Polished And Successful Than Uprooted — One Can Only Imagine That, Beyond Any Role That The Relative Weakness Of MCA At The Time Played In Its Failure (This Reviewer Scarcely Saw Or Heard A Word Printed About The Album Or Its Release), It Died An Absolute Death In The MTV-Dominated Environment Of 1982-1983, As Many Worthwhile Records Did. The Album Opens With A Title Track That's A Little Bit Too Much Of A By-The-Numbers Power Pop Exercise, But From There We Move Through Some Nicely Soul-Flavored Pop/Rock With Lots Of Hooks, Vocal, And Instrumental — The Guitars, In Particular, Are Memorable And Grill Is In Excellent Voice Almost Everywhere, And The Selection Of Material Is Stronger Than Most Of What Is On Uprooted. Given The Large Number Of Session Musicians Who Participated On The Grass Roots' Most Famous Recordings, There Seems To Be Little Point In Pondering Who's Doing The Backup Singing Behind Grill Or Playing Some Of What We Hear; On The Other Hand, It Does Seem To Be A Great Showcase For Terry Oubre's Guitar Work. And The Results Are Consistently Appealing, If Not Groundbreaking — Actually, A Lot Like The Group's Best Work Of The '60s. There Were At Least Three Potential Singles On This Album, Which Marked Just About The Last Time That The Grass Roots Were Anything But An Oldies Act, Redoing Their Vintage Hits Either On-Stage Or In The Studio. One Wishes It Were A Little Better Known On That Basis, As Well As A Pretty Good Place For This Band To Have Stopped Making New Music.” – Bruce Eder, All Music Guide more
