James Taylor Move

James Taylor Move was a briefly existing (1967–1968) Australian psychedelic pop, progressive rock group from Adelaide. It was formed by Kevin Peek on guitar (ex-Hurricanes, The Twilights, John E. Broome and the Handels), Trevor Spencer on drums, Alan Tarney on organ (John E. Broome and the Handels), and Robert John Taylor on lead vocals and bass guitar.

Early in 1967 the group won the South Australian finals of the Hoadley's Battle of the Sounds and traveled to Melbourne to compete in the national final. During that year the group released two singles, "And I Hear the Fire Sing" / "Magic Eyes" and "Baby Jane". "Magic Eyes" peaked in the Go-Set National Top 40 Singles Chart. In June 1968 Wendy Saddington, a blues vocalist, replaced Taylor but the group disbanded by the end of the year.
