“The Moody Blues are still the Sistine Chapel of popular music.” – Rolling Stone
In an endless sea of rock and pop formats, The Moody Blues have
distinguished themselves through four decades as that shimmering jewel
vindicating rock music and as a substantial artistic contribution to
Western culture. Since the 60’s, as a part of the historic original
British invasion of Supergroups, The Moody Blues have lit up the hearts
and minds of millions of rock fans with inspiring anthems like “Nights
in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock
And Roll Band),” which express universal themes of love, compassion and
peace. The band’s unique style of music consistently finds airplay on
radio stations globally, and continues to illuminate concert arenas
around the world. From being immortalized on The Simpsons to having
their music featured in movies, television and in national advertisement
campaigns, The Moody Blues are embedded in not only music history but
in pop culture.
Since they first hit the rock scene The Moody Blues have continued to
produce music that bridges the gap between rock, classical and pop-rock
genres without ever wavering in their integrity and commitment.
Featuring the altruistic inflections of guitarist/vocalist Justin
Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge, and drummer Graeme Edge, The Moody
Blues’ sound has held its ground with exquisite harmonies over and over
again, in a genre of music that is ever-changing. Since their formation
in England, The Moody Blues have created music time and time again that
offers rock music a depth that is unprecedented and inspiring.
The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide
and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold discs. Their
incredible roster of hits include: “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday
Afternoon,” “Ride My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life
Strange,” “Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),”
“Your Wildest Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a
few. The Moody Blues’ No. 1, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, Top 40,
Multi-Platinum, Platinum and Gold albums and singles, have generated
sold-out tours on a consistent basis over the course of several decades,
making them one of the top-grossing album and touring bands in
Throughout the group’s indelible history, they have been embraced by
every major music journal around the world. Says the New York Post,
“The trio looked remarkably sound and sounded untouched by time.” Adds
the Toronto Sun, “One of the biggest strengths the band has, is knowing
what they do, and doing it extremely well.” Parade.com says: “The basis
of The Moody Blues’ longevity lies in the fact that so much of their
songwriting touches upon sensitive personal milestones and experiences
in their lives that are extremely relatable. Paired with enormous
musical talent, their pain, hope, and discoveries became
cross-generational rock anthems for millions.”
Throughout the 60’s and 70’s, the group released a string of concept
albums including DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED, IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CHORD, ON
THE THRESHOLD OF A DREAM, TO OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN’S CHILDREN, A
QUESTION OF BALANCE, EVERY GOOD BOY DESERVES FAVOUR and SEVENTH SOJOURN,
which can be listened to from beginning to end like turning the pages
of a novel telling the story of our lives. The albums garnered the band
respect and acclaim that would place them in that unusual distinctive
category as pioneers of concept-rock with a message.
In 1979, the band released OCTAVE, and stepped away from the concept
theme by exploring new musical elements which spawned two hits
“Driftwood” and “Steppin’ In A Slide Zone.” In the 80’s, while punk
rock, power-pop and new wave were dominating the charts, The Moodies
showed their resilience against the changing tides of trends and
released the album LONG DISTANCE VOYAGER. The album went straight to the
top and landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with two hit singles:
“Gemini Dream” and “The Voice.” The Moody Blues then released THE
PRESENT in 1983 with the hits “Blue World” and “Sitting At The Wheel”;
followed by another album that would win over a new generation of young
fans in the mid-late 80’s entitled THE OTHER SIDE OF LIFE, which gave
birth to the hit song “Your Wildest Dreams”– one of their biggest
selling singles of their career to date. The next two albums continued
their momentum with the hit single, “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere”
from SUR LA MER, the counterpart to “Your Wildest Dreams” and 1991’s
“Say It With Love” from KEYS OF THE KINGDOM.
The 90’s marked yet another phase of the band’s illustrious career.
The Moody Blues had reached a milestone in 1992 –– their 25th
anniversary of the release of DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED. With this concept
in mind, the band performed live in concert with a symphony orchestra.
The event was filmed at the Red Rocks concert venue in Denver, Colorado,
for a PBS special, home video and album titled THE MOODY BLUES – A
NIGHT AT RED ROCKS WITH THE COLORADO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. The response
from the broadcast, video and album was so phenomenal, the band took the
symphony concerts on the road and sold out everywhere.
During this time period, The Moodies released their Gold-selling
boxed set collection entitled TIME TRAVELLER, a greatest hits package in
1997 entitled THE BEST OF THE MOODY BLUES, and a double-CD ANTHOLOGY
album. The group welcomed the new Millennium with the release of the
appropriately titled STRANGE TIMES, which was their first studio album
in eight years, charting yet again in the Top 100 on Billboard. Recorded
in Genoa, Italy, the band took on the role of “producers” of the album,
another first for the The Moodies.
The band then released a second PBS special and live album in 2001
entitled Hall Of Fame: Recorded Live At The Royal Albert Hall; and The
Moody Blues: Live At The Royal Albert Hall, respectively. The
performance re-visited the excitement of their live performances with a
symphony orchestra, recorded and filmed in England’s famed Royal Albert
Hall. The live concert, available on video, marked the first live Moody
Blues performance released on DVD.
Also in 2001, The Moody Blues were featured in the highest grossing
giant screen production of the year in the IMAX film entitled JOURNEY
INTO AMAZING CAVES. Featuring two new Moody Blues songs, “We Can Fly”
and “Water”; and their classics “Nights in White Satin” and “Ride My
Seesaw,” the film was awarded IMAX’ “Soundtrack of the Year Award,”
which was simultaneously released on CD.
In 2003, The Moody Blues released the first holiday album of their
career on Universal Records entitled DECEMBER. The band’s majestic,
orchestral mix of rock and pop fit beautifully in the new Christmas CD –
from its lush originals, to the band’s choice of traditional songs.
Produced by Hayward and Lodge, DECEMBER features five original songs,
five cover songs, and one newly arranged traditional tune with
Nashville paid tribute to the band in 2004 with the release of MOODY
BLUEGRASS, in which 31 of Nashville’s top musicians recorded and
translated the group’s 70’s and 80’s classics into bluegrass form.
Produced by mandolinist David Harvey, renowned bluegrass artists from
Alison Krauss and Harley Allen to Tim O’Brien put their bluegrass
interpretations on “Your Wildest Dreams,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock
And Roll Band),” “Nights In White Satin,” and many other Moody hits.
The Moodies released the Image Entertainment DVD and CD THE MOODY
BLUES: LOVELY TO SEE YOU, LIVE in 2005, recorded at the historic Greek
Theatre in Los Angeles. This recording was pure Moody Blues, marking the
first live performance recorded sans orchestra, since their historic
1969 live release THE MOODY BLUES LIVE +5.
In 2008, the band embarked on a tour of the U.K. and Europe; and
Universal Music Enterprises re-released the group’s first seven albums,
containing the band’s legendary chart-topping singles of the 60’s and
70’s. Each re-release by UMe features exclusive bonus tracks, alternate
versions, radio sessions and outtakes; telling a story about the
progression of rock & roll while diving into further detail with the
inclusion of live BBC recordings and bonus tracks.
In 2011, in addition to the ICON releases, a follow-up Moody
Bluegrass tribute album was released featuring cameos by the band, Vince
Gill, Ricky Scaggs, and more. MOODY BLUEGRASS TWO…MUCH LOVE. “Nights In
White Satin” also landed at #2 on the UK Rock Chart, and at #27 on the
BBC Radio 1 chart, making it the fourth time that “Nights” has charted
in its 40-plus year history. The song’s resurgence ignited after a
recent cover performance by Matt Cardle, winner of Simon Cowell’s hit UK
show “The X Factor.”
In 2012, the band celebrated the 45th Anniversary of their monumental
1967 album, “Days of Future Passed,” which features “Nights in White
Satin,” one of the first four minute songs played on the radio, becoming
one of the biggest selling singles in history, and hitting #1 three
separate times on Billboard. That summer, “Nights” was the lead track in
the movie and on the soundtrack of the Johnny Depp film, “Dark
Shadows.” Universal Music Enterprises also released a Moody Blues
greatest hits collection in two editions titled ICON and ICON 2 — single
disc and double disc formats.
In 2014, Universal Music Enterprises released two box sets titled
“Timeless Flight,” The Moody Blues’ definitive, career-spanning
collection, in both 17-disc and four-CD configurations. The lavish
17-disc set is housed in an LP-sized hardbound slipcase and includes 11
CDs of digitally re-mastered album tracks, previously unreleased mixes
and outtakes, and complete concert recordings. It also includes three
DVDs of rare television performances, promotional videos and a
previously unreleased concert film; in addition to three DVD-Audio discs
of long out-of-print 5.1 album mixes, a 120-page hardback collector’s
book, faithful reproductions of Moody Blues memorabilia, and more. The
four-CD TIMELESS FLIGHT boxed anthology culls audio highlights from the
larger collection, including standout album tracks, singles and B-sides,
previously unreleased mixes, and concert and radio performances.
Justin Hayward also released a 2014 solo album on Eagle Rock
Entertainment titled Spirits Of The Western Sky – his first since 1996’s
The View From The Hill; and live performance DVD based on his solo tour
titled Justin Hayward’s Spirits…Live – Live At the Buckhead Theatre,
Atlanta, recorded at The Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta on August 17, 2013.
Hayward’s live DVD currently airs on PBS stations nationwide in 2015,
and hit the Top 20 PBS revenue raising specials of the year.
On May 15, 2015, John Lodge releases his first solo album since
Natural Avenue on Esoteric Antenna, a label of the Cherry Red Records
Group, titled 10,000 LIGHT YEARS AGO. 10,000 LIGHT YEARS AGO also
reunites Lodge with special guest contributions from former MOODY BLUES
members – flutist RAY THOMAS and keyboardist/mellotron player MIKE
PINDER on the song “Simply Magic.”
With the Hayward and Lodge solo projects, and 2015 Moody Blues tour
this year, The Moody Blues have always been there to provide the world
with live music that is engaging and appropriate to the times. The Moody
Blues will always offer that unique experience of rock & roll
delivered with connectedness, commitment and a sentiment of peace.
