♫ Music Monday ♫
I’m on a concert high once again, having just attended The Moody Blues 50th Anniversary tour, “Timeless Flight”.
This band is indeed timeless, and sounds as good now, as in the past. It was a magical night!
The Moody Blues first formed in 1964 and their second single became a hit:
In 1966, Justin Hayward and John Lodge joined the band and took it in a new direction, pioneering what was to become known as “art rock” and “prog (progressive) rock”.
The 1967 album, “Days of Future Passed” combined orchestral sounds with haunting melodies and stands the test of time.
Their signature song, “Nights in White Satin” (and my favourite!), did not catch on with the public initially (in 1968), but was re-released and became a huge hit in 1972 and again in 1979:
Over the years, they produced 16 studio albums, 17 compilation albums and 26 singles.
Their live shows are masterpieces of musicianship and artistic lighting.
Are you a Moody Blues fan?
Looking forward to your comments!
