Ah ....The Moody Blues....beautiful music with a spiritual edge. I've been listening to them since the '60s'. When my friends were into Black Sabbath, I was listening to The Moody Blues. They transport me to an ethereal, loving, ancient world.

"As a long time fan of the Moodies, I have all of the vinyl albums in a closet. Due to years of being played, they are full of noise from scratches and wear. My attempts to record them to cd using a software based program that removes some of the pops and clicks and converts them to WAV or MP3 resulted in loss of a lot of the sound quality and are just not pleasant to listen to. I also have some of them on cassette tape (you can just imagine how they sound after having been in a box for 20 years).
After finding out that the first seven albums that the Moodies recorded were available in newly re-mastered versions and that Justin Hayward was at the center of the project, I did a search and easily found them at Amazon. The old vinyl copy of "Every Good Boy Deserves Favor" was in the worst shape of all, so I ordered it and in a couple of days found it in the mailbox (way to go Amazon). Here is my impression of the re-mastered album:
The re-mastering by none other than Justin Hayward along with Alberto Parodi and others, has resulted in a wonderfully listenable album. You can hear things in detail that you never were able to hear before! This is a good thing because they accomplished the rare feat of bringing out the original warmth and texture that Tony Clarke and Derek Varnals wove into the original vinyl during the recording,engineering and mix-down,but were able to do so without the digital coldness that is so often found with CDs. I would also like to give credit to none other than "The master of the mellotron" Mike Pinder who worked closely with Derek and Tony in achieving the incredible sounds that were made using the Mellotron (Pindertron). The high quality insert with lyrics,great pictures,band bio and credits,is one of the nicest I have seen in a CD package! In addition to the original 9 songs there are two bonus tracks which are interesting to hear,(imho)although either demos or outtakes.
As a amateur musician and Mellotron maniac,I'm impressed and very happy to have purchased this first installment of what will eventually become a complete collection of the core 7 Moody Blues albums.
I highly recommend this great album whether you are a MB fan or not. Their music can bring you to a place of deep peace, wonder and realization of things that are most precious.
Thanks for the great service Amazon and kind regards to all, Alan"
