"Positive and negative spaces competed in the lettering of Greg Irons' scream-personified poster for The Move, Cold Blood and Albert King at the Fillmore West. The advent of Irons, and contemporary artist Lee Conklin on the poster scene, made the work of earlier artists Wes Wilson and Bonnie MacLean seem positively tame by comparison."


The group The Move evolved from several mid 1960s Birmingham based groups, including Carl Wayne and the Vikings, the Nightriders and the Mayfair Set. The group's name referred to the move various members of these bands made to form the group. Beside Wood, the original five-piece line-up of The Move in 1965 was drummer Bev Bevan, bassist Kefford, vocalist Carl Wayne and guitarist Trevor Burton. The final line-up of 1972 was the trio of Wood, Bevan and Jeff Lynne, who transitioned the group into the Electric Light Orchestra.
