The Moody Blues

Post  misery guts on Mon Feb 15, 2016 10:07 am

Legendary 60s Brit psychedelic rockers whose 1967 LP "Days of Future Passed" is still seen rightly as a classic of its genre. Justin Hayward and the gang released a series of impressive albums, and even turned in a few moments of classic singles, too. Here's just a brief selection:

Go Now (live)

Nights In White Satin

Question (live)

Ride My Seesaw (live)

Your Wildest Dreams

Classic Artists: The Moody Blues
2 & a half hours running through their entire story (up to 2006 anyway), with contributions from most of the major players in the band, as well as their producer and even people from Decca Records. The quality of music and their continuing commitment to performance were perhaps the key elements to consider.

Threshold of a Dream - The Moody Blues: Live at the Isle of Wight
Mostly footage of the band in concert from 1970, but bolstered by modern footage (from 2009) of the band reminiscing about the show. Thus, a greater product for it, and worth a look.

The Moody Blues: Inside The Music
Hugely talented, but not seen as cool. They turned in a series of mighty albums, but benefitted from the bait & switch over "Days of Future Passed". But they still inspire great loyalty, after all these decades.

Better Than The Original - The Joy of the Cover Version
Less a proper examination, more a chance to rehash some familiar and unfamiliar tales. So a chance to talk about Devo and the Flying Lizards, but also how the Moody Blues ended someone's career, how Aretha made something transcendent out of Otis, and how Leonard Cohen has inspired the cool and the uncool.

Video Killed The Radio Star: The Moody Blues
Justin Hayward and director Brian Grant discussed their deliberate forays with Your Wildest Dreams and its sequel I Know You're Out There Somewhere, though there was other telly footage from a 60s show Colour Me Pop, with Voices In The Sky and Ride My See-Saw. Hayward recognised they made what use they needed to from the form, whilst not being near the forefront.
