Reviews

The Moody Blues were formed in Birmingham in the early sixties and were immediately successful, going to No.1 with their second single Go Now . As the sixties progressed their music evolved into a lusher, more progressive sound and with the arrival of Justin Hayward and John Lodge the classic line-up came together and produced the masterpiece Days Of Future Passed , which contained their classic hit single Nights In White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon . This propelled the band to a new level of success which they have sustained ever since. This show from July 1991 is the band s only Montreux appearance to date. With a line-up including John Lodge, Justin Hayward, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge they made it a very special night with inspired performances of all their classic hits. TRACKLIST 1) Lovely To See You 2) Gemini Dream 3) Tuesday Afternoon 4) Bless The Wings (That Bring You Back)* 5) Lean On Me (Tonight)* 6) Say It With Love 7) The Story In Your Eyes 8) Your Wildest Dreams 9) Isn t Life Strange 10) The Other Side Of Life 11) I m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band) 12) Nights In White Satin 13) Legend Of A Mind 14) Question 15) Ride My See-Saw * = tracks not on CD

Format: DVD
For any Moody Blues fan, there is no bad DVD. For the casual fan, you would still be charmed by this live performance. Void of the sometimes overbearing orchestration, the Moody Blues prove they are truly a rock band that can perform on their own. Remember that this is 1991 and 5.1 DTS was not available, so the sound quality is not perfect, but is more than adequate. The visual quality is not up to the par of the “Albert Hall” performance, but it is in letterbox format, which makes a world of difference. Ray Thomas gives a truly standout performance with a great version of his “Legend Of A Mind” and “Tuesday Afternoon” never sounded so true to the original. This concert was to promote the “Keys To The Kingdom “ album, which, I must admit, is not their strongest album. However, “Bless The Wings (That Bring You Back)” is a great song. This DVD set is great in that it doesn’t seem to have been heavily reedited nor have the sound distorted, other than a very crisp and loud Hayward guitar. Granted, these are the big standout hits, unlike the more recent “Lovely To See You”, but it is a grand performance. It feels and sounds raw and real!

I first saw the Moodies in the early seventies. At their peak, they were a terrific live band, even if the choice of songs for live shows has always been a bit predictable. This concert was recorded on the 'Tour of the Kingdoms' promoting their first new studio album in three years. Patrick Moraz had left, taking with him his over excessive keyboard style, and this tour was possibly their strongest ever live line up. Paul Bliss had recently joined on second keyboards along with Gordon Marshall on second drums, and with two female backing singers, the band had a full and expansive sound which is captured well here.
The show has enormous energy and, unlike today, the band really look like they are enjoying playing live; Nights in White Satin includes Justin Hayward's beautiful held note at the end which is lost from later versions with the orchestra, and the whole of Ray Thomas' flute solo on Legend of a Mind is included rather than being edited out as on the Hall of Fame DVD. On some tracks, such as Lean On me, the mix is a bit rough, but if anything this adds to the live feel - there do not appear to be any overdubs.
The band went on to do the Red Rocks show and several orchestral tours and still tour regularly. They have never again captured the sound, feel and energy of this line up. Ray Thomas has now gone, replaced by Norda Mullens, a superb flute player, but the loss of Ray's beautiful baritone voice has left a big hole in the harmonies. Graeme Edge contributes far less than he did, and with only Paul Bliss on keyboards, their current live sound is a lot thinner. The band are more like a caberet act on a grand scale today, with endless tours and little energy covering much the same set list; going through the motions to keep the pension funds topped up.

An enjoyable trip to the Moody's past, listen and watch what music was like before the evolution of today's mega productions with much less "equipment"

I was a big fan of the Moody Blues and have enjoyed othe music DVDs I have purchased. Unfortunately, the sound on this recording leaves a lot to be desired.
