The Move: Fire Brigade


This was written by the group’s leader Roy Wood, recorded on December 23, 1967 and released on January 26, 1968. It reached No 3 in Britain but did nothing in America. Wood is the lead vocalist.

Here is an alternate version with Carl Wayne on vocals.

The Fortunes released a version as a single in the US, but like The Move it got nowhere. I can’t think why anyone thought this was a good number for the Fortunes.
