Editorial Reviews

2008 reissue of their Moody Blues first seven album releases, each with bonus content. From their first landmark album release, Days Of Future Passed, with creative members Justin Hayward (guitar, vocals) and John Lodge (bass, vocals) coming on board plus the classics 'Nights In White Satin' and 'Tuesday Afternoon' finding instant success with radio and record buyers, their appeal became instantaneously widespread worldwide. Each release in this set of their first seven evolutionary albums includes a varying number of special mixes or versions of songs that are also represented in their final form on the respective albums from their highly spectacular career.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now This Is A Decent Remaster!!! October 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I was never crazy about the 1997 remasters of the "core 7" period of the Moody Blues music. I listened to the original cd releases next to the '97 remasters, and really found little difference. Now, with the 2008 new remastered classics, the difference is clear! The sound is truly crisp and has a sonic clarity like never before (at least on cd.) I've read all the arguments about the "quad" versions picked for remaster here, but overall, I cannot complain about this new sound. I wish the "Peak Hour" track didn't have the analog crackling after the lyrics are over (at its end.) But, DOFP is a recording that is over 40 years old. Actually, it holds up rather well, all things considered! I love the Moody Blues, and I am so happy that I found a cd version of DOFP that I thoroughly enjoy. Lastly, the bonus tracks are amazing! There are five here from the "Prelude" compilation, a cd of non-album tracks. I'm so glad to have these songs on cd, since "Prelude" has been out of print for some time. I like the other bonus tracks as well. "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" allows us to hear what the Moody Blues sounded like in 1967 in the studio off the cuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but disappointing July 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
No question, for clarity of sound the 2008 remaster is the best CD issue of this album ever, but....

Those of us who have been listening to this album (on vinyl) since it's release in 1967 were no doubt perplexed when we first heard it on CD. Why? Because the LP and the CD(s) contain different mixes. The story, as I've heard it, was that the album was remixed in 1978 because the original master tapes had deteriorated and all subsequent issues of DOFP have been made from this remix which lacks several key overdubs found in the original.

To some, perhaps most, the mix differences are inconsequential and hardly noticeable. For them I heartily recommend this CD. The clarity here is stunning and aside from a few instances where the musical background overpowers the vocals its about as good of a remaster as you're ever going to hear. The bonus material is interesting as well.

What is disappointing to me is that no CD has been released of the superior original mix. I have heard that there were plans to release one in 1997 (from a submaster?) but that never came about.

Until that happens I will jealously guard my early pressing of the vinyl LP as my preferred listening source for this classic album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential Moody Blues April 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Days of Future Passed" and "Seventh Sojourn" are the two Moody Blues CDs to buy. For the rest of their hits purchase one of the many greatest hits CDs. Unfortunately, their best hits album, "This is the Moody Blues" released on vinyl in the 1970s is not available on CD. "Days" contains two of the Moodys best songs-- "Nights in White Satin" and "Forever Afternoon (Tuesday?)" (better known as "Tuesday Afternoon"). Even more than 30 years later "Nights" is perhaps the best marriage of classical and pop music ever done. The song and narrative poem portion that follows are a perfect mood piece. "Tuesday Afternoon" truly soars. Some of the other parts of this album have dated somewhat ("The Day Begins" for example) and 30 years on it is sometimes hard to see how groundbreaking this album was in 1967 in the wake of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Rather than ambitious, some songs seem rather quaint in retrospect, but it is well worth buying to hear the triumvirate of "Nights," "Tuesday Afternoon" and "(Evening) Time to Get Away" in their proper context. [Note: Be sure to buy the "Originally Recording Remastered" version--it has a black background on the back cover with a "Moody Blues" emblem that looks like a butterfly. The "Remastered" version contains an interview with the Band and far superior sound quality to previous releases.]

5.0 out of 5 stars A true eternal masterpiece September 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing masterpiece of progressive (or symphonic) rock - whatever you choose. Well balanced, accomplished and ahead of time. Perhaps the best album of the genre - when the Beatles were shyly flirting with an orchestra (and their vocals still remain unconvincing), when John Lord desperately tried to bring together his group (Deep PurpleConcerto For Group & Orchestra) and the orchestra - and still they didn't sound as one thing - and Procol Harum was getting ready to play with Edmonton OrchestraLive in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra - the Moody Blues did it - together with the London Festival Orchestra conducted by Peter Knight. And the year of the recording was 1967, although the album was released in 1968 on their new label "Deram" and became their first GOLD DISC (followed almost immediately by another two golds -On the Threshold of a DreamIn Search of the Lost Chord- all 3 are must have. And still it remains the best example of symphonic rock, composed by rock-musicians. Superb, fantastic performance, mesmerizing vocal harmonies, incredible interplay of the band with an orchestra - a real feast. The first performance of "Nights In White Satin" is mind-blowing. One should keep in mind that the orchestrated passages were recorded separately and "stuck" to the band tracks, so in fact the band is not accompanied by the orchestra. But this is irrelevant - the final result counts. It is one of the top 100 albums of the century. Read more ›
