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.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 50th Anniversary 2CD BOX SET VERSION ***

Even if their 1965 debut album doesn't musically come anywhere near reflecting the sound THE MOODY BLUES acquired circa 1967's "Days Of Future Passed" (and stayed with for the whole of their lengthy career) - you have to admire Esoteric Recordings and their full-throated reissue of their Sixties Pop debut - it's properly gorgeous and then some. If only some of the major labels would pay attention to the superlative presentation that's on offer here...

Housed in a glossy 5" Mini Box Set, it features top-class remasters from original 4-track master tapes (including rare STEREO versions on Disc 2), a monstrous 43 bonus tracks (29 of which are Previously Unreleased), a lavishly annotated 24-page booklet, three black and white postcards with fan-club info on the rear and even a foldout colour poster rammed on the flip side with a memorabilia montage that will thrill fans to their little cotton socks. Both CDs are picture discs housed in different card artwork - and it doesn't cost £49.99 but twelve quid - wow!

There's tons of material to get through here - so onwards towards that dreamy Threshold (if you know what I mean)... UK released 15 December 2014 (January 2015 in the USA) - "The Magnificent Moodies" is an 'Official 50th Anniversary 2CD Edition' on Esoteric Records ECLEC 22473 (Barcode 5013929457348) and breaks down as follows (all songs are MONO except Tracks 21 to 29 on Disc 2 which are in STEREO):

Disc 1 (74:41 minutes):
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 [Side 2]
8. Stop
9. Thank You Baby
10. It Ain't Necessarily So
11. True Story

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

Beware There are two versions of this 50th Anniversary disc this is the abbreviated version, pretty much mirroring the Repertoire version released a few years ago and available on Amazon.

The bonus for this version is this contains an early version of Go Now not on that edition.

Look out for the two disc version if you want the complete Denny Lane Moody blues collection, this version is probably for the more casual fan

A great slice of British beat music from Brum, the music has little in common with the Nights in White satin band of 1967
