For the Liberal Democrats, Liam McArthur questioned how the FM intended to maintain services such as education while eschewing the 1p overall tax rise.
Plainly, Mr McArthur was seeking to depict himself as thinking of Our Children's Children's Children. Ms Sturgeon appeared to favour another Moody Blues album. A Question of Balance."

I just heard ‘Simple Game’ by Billy Ocean – it’s wonderful. I was in the car and had a shiver from beginning to end. What a great version of one of Mike’s brilliant songs. I loved every song he wrote, but this one was special.
I was proud to have played on the Four Tops version way back when.

"It is really just a coincidence that it’s getting colder and a cooler tone is on trend right now. None other than the moody and calming appeal of a deep, dark blue."http://www.cocorepublic.com.au/design-field-notes/2016/06/moody-blues/

Mr. Jardine’s reaction?
“I didn’t have one. I don’t pay attention to stuff like that. It’s a matter of opinion. What happened to ‘Days of Future Passed’ by the Moody Blues? Where did that one get lost in the shuffle? I think it was one of the most outstanding albums of all time. It wasn’t even in the Top 100, I don’t think. [Actually, it wasn’t even in the Top 500.] It’s just a matter of opinion. Very narrow. Not even worth discussing, really.”Source: http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/music/2016/08/25/Brian-Wilson-celebrates-50-years-of-Pet-Sounds-the-Beach-Boys-album-that-changed-the-game/stories/201608250005

Thank you, Phil, I was just sampling a little of Pet Sounds, and I sent this article on to someone.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Trying to predict the nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame can be a tricky thing.
Just when you think you have things figured out, the nominating committee makes a bunch of changes and shockingly nominates a handful of longtime eligible acts for the very first time.
That's what happened last year with Chicago, Steve Miller, Cheap Trick and The Cars. But I don't expect that to occur again when the nominees for the Class of 2017 are announced next week.
Expect the ballot to feature several previously nominated acts along with two newly eligible artists (one of them a lock). Here's who we predict the 15 nominees will be:(SNIP)...
The Moody Blues
"We need a new surprise nominee that can win the fan vote, a la Rush, Kiss and Chicago. Enter The Moody Blues, one of the most popular names on snub lists. However, don't count out someone like The Zombies or Electric Light Orchestra."Source: http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2016/10/rock_roll_hall_of_fame_2017_pr.html

Early Moody Blues music was informed by their second album, “Days of Future Passed”; which I had always thought of as the first rock concept album. However, it is seen by many rock critics as a precursor to progressive rock music. Bill Holdship, Yahoo! Music, said that the band “created an entire genre here.” Robert Christgau noted that it was “closer to high-art pomp than psychedelia.” And, finally, Allmusic editor Bruce Eder calls the album “one of the defining documents of the blossoming psychedelic era, and one of the most enduringly popular albums of its era.”
The band had its core members of Justin Hayward, who turns 70 on Friday, John Lodge, 71 and Graeme Edge, 75; all playing at the concert and I can assure you that even in their 70s, they can still rock. There were the MTV hits such as “Gemini Dream” and “The Voice” and of course the show ended with the classics “Question” and “Ride My See-Saw”. It was great night for the Moody Blues, their fans and rock and roll.((SNIP)) (The full article is fairly lengthy)Source: http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/great-rockers-at-50-the-moody-blues-and-75741/
