James Taylor Move

The James Taylor Move were an Australian pop-psych band from Adelaide that issued two singles on Festival Records in 1967, followed by a stint as the backing act for blues singer Wendy Saddington. Guitarist Kevin Peek and rhythm players Alan Tarney (bass) and Trevor Spencor (drums) moved to the UK where they teamed with fellow Aussie Terry Britten in the pop-combo Quartet. Tarney and Spencer later recorded three albums as a pop duo and provided instrumental backing on albums by Cliff Richard, Leo Sayer, and Barbara Dickson. In 1979, Peek reemerged in the modern-classical combo Sky with guitarist John Williams.

Members: Lance Dixon (organ, saxophone), Kevin Peek (guitar, 1967-68), John Pugh (guitar, 1968), Wendy Saddington (vocals, 1968), Trevor Spencer (drums), Alan Tarney (bass), Robert “RJ” Taylor (vocals, bass)
