Now associated as being pioneers of progressive orchestral rock, the Moody Blues had another life between 1964 – 1966, as one of Britains 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 Epsteins 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 Clarke 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.
