This review is from: Timeless Flight (Audio CD)
i have been a moody blues fan for over 25 years i started in 1981 with the voice. this 4 disc cd although expensive should have been better i give it four stars because it is almost a complete gretaest hits. first of all they left off the first album which should have started off with the song go now. then in the 80's (and this is why i gave it four stars)they made mtv stardom with three rather popular songs all three very good. Of the three songs two were cut short for what? i do not know. their biggest radio hits and they are cut short. your wildest dreams cuts in at 3:49 instead of 4:50. and the other side of life (a very beautiful song) cuts in at 4:56 instead of 6:60.(that's like including the 3 minute edited version of nights in white satin instead of the 5:38 version) the third song i know you're out there somewhere gets the full version. what this means is beyond me i would have cut out the live songs as live songs should remain on live albums. Isnt life strange is in its entirety at 8:11 minutes a bit too long, but nonethless still in its original version (not included on the album) and the story in your eyes gets the album version of 2:57 instead of the original version at 3:33. i say this because the moody blues werent a band that made strings of hits one after the other. they made some here and there. and i believe that the most famous and more well known songs should have been included in their full or original versions and not edited versions for radio frindly audiences. over all the 4 disc set is good i bought it right away. because i wanted a greatest hits that included have you heard with the other side of life.
