Product Description

Moody Blues ~ Live At Royal Albert Hall 2000

Amazon.com

One thing you've got to say about the Moody Blues: unlike the remainder of their grittier Brit Invasion peers, middle age seems to suit them just fine--better than youth, in fact. Albums from the band's late '60s/early '70s commercial heyday pretty much fixed the Blues boys' stance. Having forsaken the modest charms of their initial R&B-influenced recordings, they forged a haughty amalgamation of MOR rock, bombastic symphonic ornamentation, and proto-New Age lyricism--hardly the stuff of restless youth. This live set finds Justin Hayward, John Lodge, Graeme Edge, and Ray Thomas performing their hits ("Tuesday Afternoon," "Nights in White Satin," "Ride My See-Saw," and so on) live with backing from the World Festival, recalling, of course, the band's '67 breakthrough, Days of Future Passed. Roll over Beethoven and tell Mantovani the news. --Steven Stolder

I have followed The Moody Blues since 1981, and have them live several times. When I listened to this CD I was impressed by the overall sound quality and performances, which are far superiour to their last live recording, the somewhat sloppy and rushed "Red Rocks". This time The Moodies are much more coordinated and comfortable with the orchestra, and it really shows. However, thre are some downsides to this album. Firstly, two of the tracks are heavily edited (butchered!) "Isn't Life Strange" is missing the entire second verse, in an obvious, glarring edit job! And worse yet, the only Ray Thomas song featured on the entire album, "Legend of a Mind" is literally chopped in half! "Legend" is missing Ray's great extended flute solo that has been a highlight of all of those Moody Blues shows that I have seen over the years! It was this "solo" section that really made the live version of "Legend" different and more exciting that its 1968 studio version, now this great concert moment is completely lost! Another downside to this album is the song selection. Not that there are any BAD songs here, but this is almost the exact same track listing as the "Red Rocks" album from several years ago, and even the "Greatest Hits" album! At the show from which this CD is taken, The Moodies played John Lodge's classic "Steppin' In a Slide Zone", the energetic "Strange Times", and Graeme Edge's new "spoken word" piece "Nothing Changes" Why were these songs not included in place of songs that have already been featured on BOTH of The Moodies official live albums?Read more ›

Moody Blues performances have always been about the music - no gimmicks, no fake emotions - and this is fine a collection from their recent tour when, once again, they were in fine form. For a foursome of some 35 years, unlike many other 'troopers' peddling muscial nostalgia, the Moodies' new songs stand up to the old favourites, especially 'Haunted" and 'Words You Say' - indeed few other bands would risk playing 25% new songs and dropping some of their back catalogue from their act. Sure, there are numbers we wanted to hear and it's sad that the solos in 'Singer in a Rock and Roll Band' and 'Legend of a Mind' had to be cut to fit on the CD, but this is a great performance and, while some may think the reaction of the English audience quiet, at least it was genuine and from the heart. The recording is crystal clear and a rich, bassy sound unlike the more lacklustre, thin and muffled sound of 'Red Rocks'. The Moodies still have much to offer, both in terms of recording new material and touring - long may they keep us on the threshold of our dreams.

The Moody Blues Hall Of Fame (ARK 21)
After an 8 year dry spell with no new studio Moody Blues albums (excluding Best Of/Hits packages which seemed to grow & release themselves from inside they're former label offices and the excellent Live At Red Rocks) this is the 2nd new release since the latter in 2 years. The first was Strange Times the MB's first new studio album in 8 years (read my review) and now from the MB's new label ARK 21 we have Hall Of Fame. Yes this is another live album recorded at the Royal Albert Hall on May 1st, 2000 on the MB's U.K. 2000 tour. This album is another live greatest hits package with the MB's backed by The World Festival Orchestra this time around. Additional musicians on board as the Mb's band are Paul Bliss & Bias Bushel (keyboards), Gordon Marshall (drums/percussion), Susan Shattock & Tracy Graham (backing vocals). Well, why do I find this new live album interesting even though it contains 99% of the same old' same? First off it includes a killer version of "Legend Of A Mind" from the MB's ancient pyschedelic days of past. Thankfully they resurrected this gem and Ray Thomas who don't get to sing lead that much is magnificent and the band still plays it with the old pyschedelia (minus the substances at work now). "Haunted" & English Sunset" both from the Strange Times album excel and work perfect into the MB's new live set. Let's hope they stay. Second, they are much looser and a tad rawer as opposed to doing the usual polished, monkey suits play em' and leave em', take the money and run routine. Something, which they have been accused of over the years since they started doing the oldies but goodies, hits shows.

I saw 3 shows on the "Strange Times" tour, and was very excited when a tour concert album was released. But boy was I PISSED when I got it!
First off, the whole point of this tour was to promote their new album, "Strange Times." 5 songs from that album were performed on tour; only 3 are on this cd. Why? To make room for greatest-hits tracks that were already included on Red Rocks, showing a total disregard for the real fans and catering instead to the masses who might buy one Moodies cd in their whole life. They actually had the audacity to omit "Strange Times" and "Nothing Changes" to make room for tracks we all have on the Red Rocks cd.
Second, they butchered two of the best tracks. I was very excited to see "Legend of a Mind" included, as it was inexplicably left off the Red Rocks cd though it has always been an absolute highlight of their stage show for me. But, in order to cram everything on the one cd, the bastards sliced Ray's ENTIRE FLUTE SOLO out of that song and also the ENTIRE MIDDLE VERSE of "Isn't Life Strange." They should've released a double album or gotten rid of tracks that are already on Red Rocks. God forbid we should have a cd that doesn't have "I Know You're Out There Somewhere" or "Wildest Dreams" on it. If they can cut out "The Voice" they can cut out a couple more. To their credit, they did include "Story In Your Eyes," which was left off Red Rocks. They really ought to include as many songs that would be unique to this album as possible. How about "Steppin' in a Slide Zone," which was added to their show after Red Rocks and was performed throughout this tour?
