How I love that fantastic beginning! And how REO Speedwagon must have thought of it when they did "Riding The Storm Out." JAMS!

I shall confess: For all these years I heard Moody Blues as a certain type, maybe sui generis (their own category), of softish rock band. Somehow the words broke through tonight and I recognize that they were making social commentary that travels well beyond their time. Who knows where insight lies? Surely not me. I always liked their music but felt that the words, although well fit to the music, were not all that insightful. I stand corrected, even as I sit.

My humble opinion - the Moody Blues have more "perfect albums" than anyone I can think of.  For me, a perfect album is one you just listen to end-to-end and never have to hit skip.  This is especially true with their early stuff.

Every Good Boy Deserves Favor.    Oops! "Favour".

And the sound we make together

Is the music to the story in your eyes
It's been shining down upon me now

Thanks Bill for playing it as you do. Often enough but not too often. {#Clap}
That gem's got to remain a special treat, and the listeners must first deserve their favour!
It was a 10 for me back then, and still is. Always with a slight regret that the guitar solo doesn't last a little longer {#Good-vibes}  {#Yes}  {#Music}

That's the long and short of it. Similar to the importance or relevance of people like Paul, Mick, Elton et al getting the MBE from the Queen. And for christsakes...Cliff Richard?  LOL

Always had kudos for those in rock who told the crown to piss off with that like John, Keef, and Bowie did.

Actually, I never received the 'Nasty Woman' tshirt.  I cried 'scam' to Paypal & they got my $ back.  2016 was that kind of year, totally.

Or maybe it's the sixth; the seventh has to be Trump in the White House.

I've always loved the way they made music as deep and dramatic as they liked, and I appreciate that sometimes they really rocked!  I'm glad I got to see them play at McNichols Arena in '86 or so...truly a fantastic show! and I saw the video of the RedRocks concert...

I think ABBA is great.  By pure coincidence, my very favourite contemporary artist — Steven Wilson — likes to sport ABBA t-shirts. 

That said, yes, TMBs definitely deserve the recognition.

OTB, as usual you crack me up!  :-)

They were a ground-breaking band in establishing the Progressive Rock genre.  No one has ever come close to matching or even imitating their singularly unique sound.  Their classic 7 albums starting with Days of Future Past and concluding with Seventh Sojourn encompass an amazing body of work that, as a set, has never been equaled.  

One of the best shows I ever attended was The Moody Blues with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado in the Denver foothills.  Pure magic.

In a few weeks I'll be seeing Justin Hayward on his solo tour.  Can't wait.
