What a compilation of the "Classic 7" Moody Blues tunes! I have the vinyl version of this album as well as the CD. There is a photo montage of early pictures of the band on the inside of the vinyl release, when you open up the gatefold sleeve ... One of the pictures of the band features Justin Hayward with a beard! While the CD version doesn't include the photo montage, the booklet includes a well-written, detailed commentary of the band, in the liner notes, by John Tracy. There is also a section featuring the UK and USA release data and chart positions of all The Moody Blues material up to this greatest hits compilation. In addition, the CD booklet also features a couple of photos not seen on any of their original LP's, including one photo that looks like it was taken during the "Octave" period.

The CD release reveals that all of the songs were re-mastered by Anthony Hawkins, who also re-mastered the songs from the original CD version of Justin Hayward's "Night Flight" album, so we get outstanding sound quality, all the way through. Also, as with the earlier CD versions of the "Classic 7" albums, the tail ends of the final tunes that end out Side One are cross-faded with the intro of the songs on Side Two, creating one continuous flow of all of the tracks.

The remix of "Question" on this LP is nice, with some of the instrumentation missing from the intro (as heard on the single version of the song), and some additional instrumentation and vocals near the end of the song ... I liked that arrangement.

The sound of the bass guitar is boosted tremendously on the mixes of "The Actor," "Legend of a Mind," and "Watching and Waiting.

This album came out in 1974 during the band's hiatus and was put together by the band's producer Tony Clarke. He went back to the master tapes and put together this wonderful collection remixing and editing the release so that all the songs flow in and out of each other. The nice thing about this is that it doesn't seem like a standard "hits" collection thrown together by the record company to cash in on a band's fan base like most of these albums do, but rather carefully chosen and assembled to fit together well giving all the members room to shine. It's a shame given the fact that there are so many bogus rip-off Moody Blues "hits" collections out there and yet this one which is the best put together is the one that is currently out of print on cd. I should mention that this also was a big hit when it was released sending several songs back into heavy rotation on FM radio.

P.S. At the time I wrote this, it was the listing for the cd. Oh well.

I had the vinyl of this one when it came out (got the CD version later). Still the best compilation from the first seven albums & some mixes are are only found on this album (the one track that should have ended with the original ending, "Nights In White Satin" missed that final "Gong". So if you really want a absolutely great album with all the tracks sequed together like the original albums, this is the ticket! What are you waiting for, buy it, you won't be sorry ;-) Search Judemac Forever on msn

My wife bought this multi-record set for me for Christmas in the early years of our marriage. If it wasn't a new release at that time, it was not out very long. I loved listening to it and was excited about the way they put the songs together from their early albums.

That LP became quickly worn, and as soon as I invested in a CD player, I began looking for it. I finally found it in the late 90's in a record store in Europe. Listening to it not only brought back all of the original memories of my being a fan of this band in the 60's, but it also provided the same thing about the early years of our marriage.

My wife and I have seen The Moody Blues three times live, and this album will always remain one of my favorites, although I have them all and an additional box set as well. It is an excellent CD.

I don't understand why music like this remains out of print, given some of the [...] that remains available, and most importantly, I don't understand why they don't make it available in remastered form.
