The Moody Blues have a new career retrospective out today (Tuesday).
“Timeless Flight: The Ultimate Moody Blues – The Ultimate Journey” is a 17-disc set that comes in a heavy-duty LP-sized hard-back slipcase and contains 11 re-mastered CDs featuring key album tracks, previously unreleased mixes, out-takes and complete live concerts. There are also three DVDs of rare TV performances from around the world, promotional videos and the previously unreleased 1970 concert from the Olympia in Paris. And three more audio DVDs contain the long-deleted 5.1 Surround Sound mixes of the albums “Days of Future Passed”, “On the Threshold of a Dream”, “To Our Children’s Children’s Children”, “A Question of Balance”, “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” and “Seventh Sojourn”.
Extras include a 120-page hardback book with rare photos, a replica full-color tour poster and discography.
The Moodies just wrapped up a U.K. tour and they are now in Amsterdam for two shows — tonight, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Justin Hayward then does a solo run through the Northeast United States in August, followed by another Moodies U.S. tour starting September 26th in Louisville, Kentucky.
They are scheduled to play the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant Michigan September 28th.
