1970’s Shazam continued The Move’s practice of musical quotation and of elaborately re-arranged versions of other performer’s songs. “Hello Susie” (a Roy Wood composition), which was a top five hit for Amen Corner in 1969, quotes Booker T. Jones’ and Eddie Floyd’s “Big Bird,” and the album includes a cover of a Tom Paxton song, “The Last Thing on My Mind”. It also included a slightly slower remake of “Cherry Blossom Clinic” that began in with a proto-metallic grind and finished with an acoustic guitar-dominated extended quotation from Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Joy”.
