The Magnificent Moodies: 50th Anniversary Deluxe 2CD Remastered Edition
•    OFFICIAL DELUXE 2 CD 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE MOODY BLUES DEBUT ALBUM
•    REMASTERED FROM THE FIRST GENERATION MASTER TAPES FOR THE FIRST TIME
•    WITH 43 BONUS TRACKS – 29 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED
•    INCLUDES A POSTER, THREE POSTCARDS, A LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK WITH PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN PHOTOS & NEW ESSAY BY MARK POWELL


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the debut album by The Moody Blues, "The Magnificent Moodies”.

Now associated as being pioneers of progressive orchestral rock, the Moody Blues had another life between 1964 – 1966, as one of Britain’s finest Rhythm and Blues influenced acts. With a line-up of DENNY LAINE (Guitar, Vocals, Harmonica), RAY THOMAS (Vocals, Harmonica, Flute), MIKE PINDER (Keyboards, Vocals), CLINT WARWICK (Bass, Vocals) and GRAEME EDGE (Drums), the band signed to a London based management company who leased recordings to Decca Records. Their second single, a cover version of Bessie Banks’ "Go Now!” was a huge chart success across the world. Their debut album, "The Magnificent Moodies” was released in1965 to great acclaim and tours with The Beatles eventually led them to become part of Brian Epstein’s management stable. The band continued to record a series of singles, enjoying further chart hits in the UK and Europe, before Clint Warwick departed to be replaced by ROD CLARK and then finally dissolving in the Autumn of 1966 and reinventing themselves stylistically with a new line-up including JUSTIN HAYWARD and JOHN LODGE.

This official 50th anniversary Deluxe edition includes the original album, re-mastered from the first generation master tapes, along with all the singles the band recorded between 1964 and 1966. Notably this collection includes 29 previously unreleased bonus tracks, including the band’s entire July 1964 sessions at Olympic studios in London produced by ALEX MURRAY, all surviving BBC radio sessions recorded in 1965 and nine tracks recorded in the Summer of 1966 with producer Denny Cordell for a proposed but unreleased second album (all newly mixed from the original four-track master tapes).

The set is packaged in a clamshell box, with a lavishly illustrated booklet (with previously unseen photographs designed by Phil Smee) and essay written by Mark Powell, three rare promotional postcards and a poster. This edition of "The Magnificent Moodies” is the definitive statement on the formative years of one of Britain’s greatest bands.

Please Note: This title is released November 24 and will not be dispatched before this date.
