Product Description

Product Description

Justin Hayward joined the Moody Blues in 1966, replacing the departing vocalist and guitarist, Denny Laine. The Moody Blues subsequently scrapped their bluesy standards from the repertoire, instead crafting lush, lyrical – and sometimes musically bombastic – psychedelic imagery, perfectly capturing the spirit of the period. This musical metamorphosis also transformed them into one of the most popular and enduring acts in history.
The 1967 album 'Days of Future Passed', one of the first and most influential symphonic rock albums, spawned the Hayward-penned classic 'Nights in White Satin', which went on to sell over two million copies. Justin also wrote most of the group's future anthems, including 'Question', 'Voices in the Sky', 'The Voice', 'Blue World', 'Your Wildest Dreams' and 'I Know You're Out There Somewhere'.
In 2003, together with vocalists Mike Sadler (Saga) and Shaun Williamson (Atlanta Rhythm Section/ King Karma) he recorded this album comprised of classic Hayward and Moody Blues Hits, backed by the Frankfurt Rock Orchestra, conducted by Leon Ives.

By Marty From SF HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Oct. 2010
If you enjoy the Moody Blues and their orchestration, you'll completely enjoy this collection. It's a nice collection of ballads, mid-tempo and rock songs, sung not just by Justin Hayward, but by vocal artist Michael Sadler and Shaun Williamson of the Atlanta Rhythm Section. The Frankfurt Rock Orchestra provides the orchestration, which are actually the members of the Prague Symphonic Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. But surprise! This is simply a remixed version of the 1994 release, 'Classic Moody Blues'. Its quality is far better however. Hayward sings six of the songs, all of them being slower in tempo like, "Ru'nning Water" and "Voices In The Sky". Sadler takes on the more mid-tempo hits like, "Your Wildest Dreams" and the majestic "Nights In White Satin". Leave the rest of the harder rockers of "Question" and "Isn't Life Strange" to Shaun Williamson. Both `friends' have great voices and it's interesting to hear another interpretation of these classics.

Fortunately, I never tire of the Moody Blues in any form, but this does bring up the issue of many of the older bands releasing rehashed versions of older music over and over again. Hayward is not as guilty, as he presents new interpretations, but how many compilations of "Moody Blues" greatest hits is out there? Take a look at any artist being produced from Rhino Records and you'll see the newer, latest releases of the older, old ones. Another Hayward release that will please many fans is 'Classic Blue', which covers a variety of popular this from the sixties and seventies. All of them are in orchestral format.

As Usual anything that Justin Hayward or The Moody Blues Release is top quality and this is No exception. A brilliant CD. Justin has a very clear voice and the two friends on the album can also sing. I don't usually like other artist singing Moodies songs but they were very good.

I can't fathom why JH would do this album and give parts of it away to other vocalists. Surely he could have done the whole project himself. While they are okay, there is no substitute for the man himself singing his own compositions, and to hear them all re - imagined by JH would have been better. A shame that he didn't do the complete set. As it is, it's a real curate's egg of a release. Parts are excellent, parts are okay.

I agree with your second reviewer, anything Justin Hayward does is brilliant, and of course the songs he sings are good, don't much care for the other singers, just not in the same league. Have been an ardent Moody Blues fan since 1966, saw them when Justin and John had just joined at a little known venue in Dunstable, The Calafornia Ballroom, they were great then, and have seen them many times since, the last time September this year in Oxford, still brilliant! Have all there records, but this dissapoints.
