While I totally appreciate all the reviews here, there are some inaccuracies I have to correct. First of all this collection came out five years ago, not more than ten years ago as another reviewer states (he's refering to the 1989 release "Greatest Hits/Legend Of A Band", which doesn't include "Go Now"). Secondly, "Nights In White Satin" is neither the "Days Of Future Past" version nor the single version. Rather, it's the complete recording WITHOUT the orchestral overdubs (the Moody Blues don't play on the introduction, nor do they play on "Late Lament", Mike Pinder's reading of Graeme Edge's poem, which was a seperate recording). Thirdly, they don't play on the orchestral ending/interlude of "Tuesday Afternoon"; this is where the single version faded anyway.
That said, it's still a fine representation of the Moody Blues (eons ahead of the Millenium Collection). However, if you don't mind spending the extra dough, get "Anthology" which is an even better collection (as a number of other reviewers allude to).
This collection has "Go Now" from "The Magnificent Moodies," an album that was very different from what was to come. This version of the Moody Blues included Ray Thomas, Mike Pinder, Denny Laine, Graeme Edge, and Clint Warwick.
After several singles Laine and Warwick left, to be replaced by John Lodge and Justin Hayward; the Moody Blues were born!
From "Days of Future Passed (1967 in U.S.)" is "Nights and White Satin" and "Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)." This concept album mated rock and classical music together, and heralded art rock and symphonic rock. Occasionally bombastic and pretentious, this album is one of the best selling rock albums.
"In Search of the Lost Chord (1968)," the most psychedelic album by the Moody Blues, contributes "Ride My See Saw" and "Voices in the Sky," two very different songs that give you few clues as to the album. At the time the "House of Four Doors" and "Legend of a Mind" combination on that album was unique in rock.Read more ›
