I have owned this album in Vinyl since 1973, and IMHO is the best of the original 7 Moodies Albums recorded with Justin Hayward and John Lodge. The segue from "Procession" to "Story in Your Eyes" sends a tingle up my spine every time I hear it and the fade out to "My Song" is just superb; little wonder some odd folks thought of the Moodies as of another world. But the best track has to be "You Can Never Go Home", just brilliant; I can't understand why this track has never appeared on a Moodies compilation.
This remaster is excellent, increasing clarity but losing none of the warmth of Tony Clarke's original production.

From the release of their debut album "Days Of Future Passed" in 1967 till 1972,s "Seventh Sojourn " The Moody Blues produced seven excellent albums. Arguably the best of the lot (Some days i myself would plump for "Our Childrens Childrens Children") is "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour" their sixth. It was the first Moody Blues album i became intimately familiar with after filching it my fathers collection and every time i hear the incremental intro to "Procession" i want to hear the complete album with no interruptions thank you very much.
As with most Moodies albums the song writing , playing and production (Courtesy of the ever present Tony Clarke) are top notch. The largely instrumental "Procession" is piece of music designed to describe the history of music from the beginning of time till the present day and is also the first song written by the entire band. It segues brilliantly with the lightning bolt electricity of "The Story In Your Eyes" , one of the bands greatest songs and for a Justin Hayward penned track a surprisingly up-tempo experience. Ray Thomas also provides one if his strongest songs with "Our Guessing Game", a track that highlights the bands outstanding intricate vocal and harmony work.
Again we see a change of perception with John Lodge who usually wrote the bands more rock orientated songs contributing "Emily,s Song"- written for his newly born daughter and its a lovely tippling ballad hat crucially avoids mawkishness. "After You Came" written by Graham Edge returns to the albums central dramatic precept.Built around a stop/start arrangement that feels slightly rushed and once again is shot through with scorching blasts of Hayward's guitar.

This is probably the best offering from the best band in the world. Each and every track is a classic, with the Story In Your Eyes the best single that never was. I have aspired to a hi fi that would do justice to this track and deliver the guitar work as it was meant to be heard. I think I'm there now. Why on earth didn't they release this as a single in the UK? This album is the band at their peak with other tracks of merit including After You Came and the wonderful One More Time To Live. Wall to wall quality with no duff offerings here. Perhaps the best introduction to the band for those taking the plunge for the first time. Highly recommended to all considering a Moodies album.

I regard this album, which I discovered in the early 70s, as an absolute masterpiece. It was a definite milestone, in fact turning point, on my own musical journey from late 60s soul/Motown to all that lay beyond. Although all of the Moodies' famous, late 60s/early 70s, "pre-Moraz", first seven albums (featuring Mike Pinder at his mellotronic best) show the band combining together, assisted by Tony Clarke's prodigious production skills, to create a unique sound and amazing music,(and I would recommend anyone to include them all in their music collection), this is for me the album that represents their coming of age and very best work. It is creative, progressive, mature and seriously good. Not a single weak track, lots of variety, and all segueing from one to the next, naturally and seamlessly. Because it is more profound and less instantly commercial than some of their other work, it is one of those that seeps into your brain after a few listens, and eventually, you may find, like me, that it holds a special place in your affections. A real "grower". I can say without hesitation that it would be the one album from the Moodies' entire catalogue that I would have to include in my Desert Island top 10 - and probably ahead of such must-haves as Sgt Pepper, Abbey Road, Dark Side of the Moon, Rumours, OK Computer and Beethoven's 9th. If you like crashing guitars, soaring, symphonic mellotron and unforgettable melodies, this is the one for you. It is the Moodies' album that is most similar to the classic Barclay James Harvest and King Crimson albums of the same era. Listen to it when you have the time to soak up its atmosphere, preferably late at night in a darkened room.
Seventh Sojourn was most certainly a worthy successor, though very different in character.
