When I first heard “Blackberry Way” by The Move, I imagined it had been recorded in an underground club on the Left Bank in Paris.

It felt to me like half a dozen blokes wearing black polo neck sweaters, smoking Gauloises, were performing it…perhaps with a couple of women smoking long, thin cigars and drinking Crème de Menthe, looking like extras from the film “Cabaret”, in the background.
