Weekdays Midnight - 5am


Moody Again
Posted:Monday, 10/01/2012 at 04:10am by Greg Easterling
We started a brand new week...and a whole month of fresh vinyl sides with one of the great album artists of the Sixties and beyond, The Moody Blues.

Days of Future Passed, In Search Of The Lost Chord, On the Threshold Of A Dream...the Moodies waxed so many great records while utilizing the full potential of the recording studio in their day. By 1972 though, the process was getting more difficult as band members seemed to need a break from each other. Seventh Sojourn was difficult to record both because of the personalites involved and perhaps lacking the kind of unifying theme they'd often had in the past, as loose as it might have been. But as they had done so many times before, the Moody Blues pulled together to record a steller album in Seventh Sojourn. We listened to Side 1 this time highlighted by "Lost In A Lost World" and "Isn't Life Strange".

Thanks for posting Jason and glad you enjoyed the Moodies album this time. Listening to one of their early sides is time well spent. Good to hear from you once more.

I like the album Seventh Sojourn by the Moody Blues. It is a good album. I have the CD, and it sounds pretty good. I like the song New Horizons. That is a beautiful song. I also like Isn't Life Strange. In that song, they imitate the Bee Gees' singing style. That album was released in 1972, the year I was born. Seventh Sojourn by the Moody Blues is a good album to have in your collection if you're a Moody Blues fan.
