3.0 out of 5 stars Life before Justin H and John L 9 Jun 2009
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With future Wings man Denny Laine on guitar and lead vocals and the late Clint Warwick on bass, the first incarnation of MBs were a part of the first British blues boom. Though not as effective as the Stones, Animals, etc, they were clearly one of the most musically proficient bands of the era. By the time they made this album (1965/6), most of the band were in their mid-twenties and had done their bit around Hamburg.

Most of these recordings seem to utilise Mike Pinder's piano as the focal point, especially their sole major hit, 'Go Now'. There are a handful of Laine/Pinder songs on the album, plus several more among the fourteen bonus tracks culled from single releases. While the album is quite strong, especially 'I'll Go Crazy', 'I Don't Mind', 'Let Me Go' and 'Go Now', the bonus tracks are mostly bland. It isn't hard to see why they needed a makeover. What isn't in doubt is the quality of the recordings or the band's performances. Worth a listen if you like the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Like It! 18 April 2011
By SeaWasp
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pretty much your standard mid-60s Brit-Pop and nothing like what The Moodies did on "Days Of Future Passed" and beyond. The album here consists of a couple of James Brown tunes, A Gershwin song and a few other covers. The rest, including most of the bonus tracks, are all Denny Laine/Mike Pinder songs... many in the R&B vein (including a neat cover version of "I Can't Go On Without You" and "Time Is On My Side") with great harmonies and more than adequate playing. Nothing Earth-shattering but a darn good listen if you're feeling nostalgic for a simpler, more-fun time.

The Repertoire release comes in a digi-pak and includes a 12-page booklet with pictures and info. This early effort from the band gets a lot of flack because it isn't like their later stuff (although the ending of "From The Bottom Of My Heart" sounds suspiciously like "Nights In White Satin")... but for what it is, it's pretty good. A decent effort from a great band that was on it's way to loftier heights.

Anyway, here's what you get:

1. I'll Go Crazy
2. Something You Got
3. Go Now!
4. Can't Nobody Love You
5. I Don't Mind
6. I've Got A Dream
7. Let Me Go
8. Stop
9. Thank You Baby
10. It Ain't Necessarily So
11. True Story
12. Bye Bye Bird

Bonus tracks:
13. People Gotta Go
14. Steal Your Love Away
15. Lose Your Money (But Don't Lose Your Mind)
16. It's Easy Child
17. I Don't Want To Go On Without You
18. Time Is On My Side
19. From The Bottom Of My Heart (I Love You)
20. And My Baby's Gone
21. Everyday
22. You Don't (All The Time)
23. Boulevard De La Madelaine
24. This Is My House (But Nobody Calls)
25. Life's Not Live
26. He Can Win

I must have missed this CD on release and really only bought it to complete my collection of all Moody Blues CD's. Having said that it was great to listen to some of the very early music once again, so was not disappointed by its purchase

"we've already said...."

Quintessential Swinging 60's with DENNY LAINE in the limelight

The Magnificent Moodies: Easy to love and difficult to hate.

Background

When it comes to 60's you can't go about saying EVERYTHING 60's equals great anything current scene equals S*** the reality is not like that. In the end we are still not talking about spiritual elevation but of pop, someone can say MMT by the Beatles is pure class, I can't agree at all, at least not about the set of MMT songs as a whole.
Point is it is not for everyone. To the chase with this one:

Magnificent Moodies however is adored by Denny Laine fans but still remains , despite the fact you might not even know who he is (don't confuse Denny Laine with the song ` Penny Lane' by the way). It's still more a something for everyone release without any fuss in effort to really `get it' If you want a `different kind' of album from the said decade try `Bull of The Woods' `Smiley Smile' or why not the `Wedding album' it seems promising if you like avant garde. I also reviewed George Harrison's debut Wonderwall the other day, that's one of those beyond compare LP's of 60's.
Again, provided you are into that type of thing. `Magnificent Moodies `is nevertheless still magnificent and very much a quintessential swinging 60's release, apart from Go Now I was initially taken by the snippets I had heard of Boulevard de La Madeleine, albeit in much worse sound quality than it is presented in here.

This is stellar stuff even if it is not the album that you listen to through and through and get an ethereal feeling about it for - like some people can relate to when the fully `Get' say what `Pet Sounds' is really about.
