''Mr Scruff - Get A Move On'' should be named ''Moondog - Lament I, Bird's Lament (Mr Scruff Mix)''
because Scruff just added 4/4kick+bassline (and some sampled shout) into it.
Also ''Honeydew'' is just slowed down ''Spanky Wilson - Love Song'' with some additional rhythm.
And that's the reason why other tracks on the album are weaker.

Repress sounds great on my system, and the 180 g vinyl looks & feels awesome.

Wow do I have love / hate relationship with this album. The album starts off with some of the best nu-jazz tunes this label and artist have to offer. Then, after less than half way through, the album falls into this big pile of crap. I have yet to listen to this whole album in one sitting but I keep popping it in for those two classics Get a Move On and Honeydew. I could honestly play Get a Move on the whole day without getting bored but as far as most of the album is concerned it's just one repeatative mess. There's some British humor mixed in as well, which I just don't get. Mr. Scruff likes little rodents, the ocean and pies I guess. If I was to do it again I would have just bought the two singles and downloaded this album and I recommend anyone new to this artist to do the same with this album.

Mr. Scruff made a household name for himself with KEEP IT UNREAL, partially thanks to the use of the jazztastic “Get a Move On” in a car commercial. The album as a whole shows Scruff’s love of old jazz and hip-hop rhythms—and how the two go together hand in glove. The slide of “Midnight Feast” goes straight to your soul, while the neo-souul groove “Honeydew” will have your mouth watering. The humorous obsession with aquatic animals continues onto this album, with the whale-centric “Shanty Town” and the self-evident “Fish.” But if you just want to relax, flip on over the “Travelogue” and let yourself go. A marvelous album.
