I am a huge Moody Blues fan and disappointed with "The Inside Story" due to the lack of interviews with any of the members and 'weak' concert footage (I think the album soundtracks were inserted into the concert footage). The dvd starts with good insight with the origin of the MB's and the Denny Laine days and does a good job of explaining the origin of "Days of Future Passed." The best insight came from their sound engineer, Derek Varnals and how the album came together. The story continues with casual background how the subsequent albums came together but offers little detail. Perhaps one item they should have omitted from this program was comments from music critic, John Mendelson. He states the music from "Days of Future Passed" is "spectacularly smaltzy poetry, and lyrics are unintelligible." Who let this guy get by with that remark? The story continues thru the Octave album and mentions the solo projects of Ray Thomas, and Blue Jays with minor comments, not a lot of meat. The show ends with the comments that the Moodys should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Amen. I think the folks at "VH1 Classic Albums" should research and present the album "Days of Future Passed" and do the Moodys justice.

Don't waste your money. One critic is too "cool" to like the Moodies, so why is he on this DVD? The other critic is ambivalent. The interviews on the stereo mix are often buried below the music. Other than some insights into the early days, a few comments by Derek Varnals and their publicist, there is nothing worthwhile here. After "In Search of the Lost Chord," subsequent albums are basically covered in 1 sentence. There is footage of Patrick Moraz, but no mention that Mike Pinder left the group! And there is nothing about the Moodies after "Octave."

I got this DVD for Christmas and I was really disappointed with it. There are other DVD's which cover the beginnings of the band much better than this one and I would not recommend it. I was hoping it would have more clips of the band and some never seen footage from the earlier days.
