Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. In 1967—a year that also brought the world Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Are You Experienced and The Velvet Underground & Nico—came this ambitious concept album from The Moody Blues. With assistance from The London Festival Orchestra, the band pursued the story of a journeyman’s day to night, explaining the song titles “The Day Begins”, “Lunch Break: Peak Hour” and “Evening”, as well as the poetry that links the tracks. Packed in this gorgeous orchestration were two hit singles: the deliriously romantic “Nights in White Satin” and the trippy ode to leisure “Tuesday Afternoon”. On the album, the latter is melded into the more ambitious “The Afternoon: Forever Afternoon (Tuesday?)” with the track “(Evening) Time to Get Away”. The album takes a wild chance on combining orchestral manoeuvres and spacy British psychedelia and pulls it off as a brilliant period piece. Ambitious backing vocals add a colourful dimension to “The Morning: Another Morning”. Flutes and strings wander through the hypnotic tunes, bringing a meditative calm to “Evening” with “The Sunset” and “Twilight Time”. A classic.
