    Default Moody Blues Appreciation Thread

    I think this amazing band deserves a thread. Days of Future Passed, In Search of the Lost Chord, On a Threshold of a Dream, To Our Children's Children's, and many others. I'll add some videos of some of my favorites.

    In Search of the Lost Chord is an amazing album but strangely none of the other albums from their glory years float my boat to anything close to the same degree.

    One of my favorite Moodies' cuts ever, from the seminal In Search Of The Lost Chord masterpiece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCtQw...yer_detailpage.

    p.s. @ neoshredder, Great idea for a thread!

    For those that like the Moody Blues should also check out the Strawbs.

    The Strawbs are a fine band neoshredder but if you really want Moody Blues type like music Barclay James Harvest would fit the bill better. I prefer the Moody Blues vocals over either Strawbs or BJH but anyone who likes progressive rock should be aware of those two.

    I prefer the Strawbs. But yeah both bands are great. And Procol Harum is similar in some ways but a lot different in other ways. Also Renaissance has a female singer. But also folky and progressive like the Moody Blues.
