Move It On Over is the second album by George Thorogood and the Destroyers released by Rounder Records in 1978. The album contains all cover material. Its title track, Hank Williams’ “Move It on Over”, received major FM radio airplay when released, as did the Bo Diddley cover, “Who Do You Love?”.

In 1978, George Thorogood was just beginning to make some noise on the blues-rock circuit. This was his second album, and what’s now almost a cliché then sounded fresh and vital. Thorogood’s energy, rousing vocals and driving guitar playing came roaring through on inspired covers of Elmore James’ “The Sky Is Crying,” Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love” and Chuck Berry’s “It Wasn’t Me.” He even did a credible Piedmont blues on Brownie McGhee’s “So Much Trouble.” While Thorogood went on to make more commercially succesful albums, the spirit and innocence in his early releases has seldom been duplicated. This Rounder CD reissue returns him to a simpler, and in some ways superior, period.
