Editorial Reviews

The legendary Moody Blues present this special musical collection, their first live album without an orchestra, since their historic 1969 release The Moody Blues Live + 5. Recorded live at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on June 11 during their 2005 World tour, in which they played New Zealand for the first time and returned to Australia, this rare live recording is pure Moody Blues. With the Moodies' unique brand of music that has kept them at the top of their profession for 40 years, and has maintained them as one of the biggest live touring acts of all-time, this is a truly sparkling performance from one of the world's greatest and best-loved rock bands.

Featuring Justin Hayward on electric, acoustic guitar and vocals; John Lodge on bass, acoustic guitar and vocals; and Graeme Edge on drums and percussion, the rock legends magically perform selections from their incredible roster of musical masterpieces.The Moodies are also joined by their friends and colleagues Norda Mullen on flute and guitar, Gordon Marshall on drums and percussion, Paul Bliss on keyboards, and Bernie Barlow on backing vocals and keyboards, making it a magical night to remember.

Songs: Lovely to See You, Tuesday Afternoon, Lean on Mea (Tonight), The Actor, Steppin' in a Slide Zone, The Voice, Talking out of Turn, I Know You're Out There Somewhere, The Story in Our Eyes, Forever Autumn, Your Wildest Dreams, Isn't Life Strange, The Other Side of Life, December Snow, Higher and Higher, Are You Sitting Comfortably, I'm Just a Singer (in a Rock n Roll Band), Nights in White Satin, Question and Ride My See-Saw.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for a Moodies fan February 24, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is basically the "Set" from the group's 2004 and 2005 tours, give or take a song, so it is very recent and covers the entire Moodies' span from "Tuesday Afternoon" to "December Snow." It's too bad that Ray Thomas isn't with them, but the flute is handled beautifully without him. For a complete concert, this disc may be the best overall. "Red Rocks" seemed to have good energy but in the early part of the concert, they seemed a bit "off," and the audio mix was weak on the vocals. "Hall of Fame" was a little better on the audio mix, but the energy didn't seem to be there and the song list was a bit short. On this latest disc, you get songs that don't appear elsewhere including Graeme's "Higher and Higher" dance, and Justin's "Forever Autumn" rendition. I've bought every Moody Blues DVD I can find, and I think this is the best one of the bunch so far. (And as a bonus, you get a half-hour of interview footage with the 3 remaining Moodies).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trip Back In Time! With DTS! February 14, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Moody Blues are just getting better. Recorded in June of 2005 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, this `live' recording has no orchestra, however, it still brings back the feelings of the older songs. "Lovely To See You" might be an odd choice to open (other than its obvious title), but it is pitch perfect and a great prelude to what is to come. The original sound of the mellotron on "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights In White Satin" is more like the original than the orchestrated ones. In fact, it is great to hear the Moody's without an orchestra, proving their sound is just as good as it was in the sixties. Hayward's voice is in fine tune on great renditions of "The Actor" and "Question". "Higher & Higher" Is a great treat with Graeme Edge giving a chilling rendition exactly like the original. In fact, it is hilarious to see Edge do an (`Irish'?) dance gig during the song. Hayward and Lodge remain fairly conservative, as usual and although Ray Thomas is missed, he flutist replacement is amazing (Norda Mullen). She may not have the dramatization of Thomas, but she has stage presence and hits the notes perfectly. The entire feeling and sound is more of a trip back in time than any of the other live recordings. They are still the Moody Blues and are strong, tight and psychedelic to this day. The lights are bright and the backdrop is pure psychedelia.

The DVD includes detailed information about each song, who wrote it, who played what instrument, even each individual performers list of instruments down to the type and manufacturer. Who knew that Graeme Edge used Zildjian cymbals or that Hayward used a 100-watt Mesa dual rectifier? See what I mean? This is a complete and thorough history! AND, it is in DTS 5.1 surround sound!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Moody Blues Live in 2005!!! November 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Alongside The Rolling Stones, The Moody Blues are one of the other great British bands to still be going strong after being together for over 40 years. The band's latest live release "Lovely To See You" captures The Moodies in a stunning live performance at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre in June 2005 and is proof that they haven't lost their magic touch at all during their long existance.

This 2-disc set includes many songs that have become immortal classics and fan favorites over the years. Staples such as "Tuesday Afternoon", "The Voice", "Isn't Life Strange", "The Story In Your Eyes", "I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band)" and of course, "Nights In White Satin" are all included here alongside more obscure tracks such as "Steppin' In A Slide Zone", "Talking Out Of Turn", "Higher and Higher" and "The Actor". In fact, the music performed here spans the band's entire career excluding the very early period with Denny Laine.

As for the performance itself, the band was definitely on a musical high during this particular night. Despite the absence of a full symphonic orchestra which has become the norm for The Moodies in recent years, the band still maintains their trademark orchestral sound while letting loose with some raw energy that isn't always apparent on their studio albums. Also of interest is the fact that this is the first live release from The Moody Blues not to feature founding member/flautist/singer Ray Thomas (who retired from the band in 2003). In his place is the brilliant flautist Norda Mullen who despite not being an official band member, still delivers an outstanding performance and effortlessly fills some big shoes left by her predecessor.

Indeed, the rest of the band delivers an equally stellar performance as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Moody Blues live on: 40 years and still great!!!! February 14, 2006
Format:DVD
Nothing, not even this DVD, can capture the thrill, the excitelment, the enthusiasm and the joy of actually attending a Moody Blues concert. However, this DVD comes very, very close.

The sound is near perfect!!! I listened to the DTS 5.1 sound. I honestnly did not hear one sour note. The camera angles and shots were superb. They had shots over Graeme's shoulder looking toward the audience. They had many shots of the often overlooked drummer Gordon Marshall. There were many shots of Paul Bliss on keyboards and of Norda Mullen on flute. She is outstanding, in case you haven't seen or heard her.

If anything, they edited out the audience! You could see the crowd standing and clapping and really getting into it, but the crowd noise was minimumized. When I saw the Moodies in November 2005, the standing ovation after "Nights in White Satin" lasted over 2 minutes. On this DVD, it lasts 13 seconds!

No orchestra, no Ray Thomas and the band goes on. Just watching Graeme's performance of "Higher and Higher" makes this DVD a must for your collection. On this DVD, we don't get to see much of the stage show that accompanies the Moodies on tour. They can't capture everything on stage that is happening. That's why you must go see them for yourself!!

As an added bonus, there is a 29 minute interview with John, Graeme and Justin that is not to be missed.

This DVD is a "must-have" for every Moody Blues fan. Whether you were with them in the beginning or joined them along the way of their musical journey, you will not be disappointed.
