The Moody Blues, still rocking in 2013 with original members Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge, have released 24 albums in a career spanning nearly five decades. They have sold more than 70 million albums, earning them 18 platinum discs and all manner of awards including Playboy “Group of the Year”, the “Golden Ticket” award for selling the most tickets at Madison Square Garden and an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Contribution to British Music; the band has even appeared in an episode of “The Simpsons”.
The Moody Blues will release a definitive career-spanning box set titled “Timeless Flight” on Tuesday, June 25, on Universal Music Enterprises. The 17-disc set will include digitally re-mastered CDs, DVDs of rare television performances, audio discs, a hard back collector’s book, and more.
Their classic album Days of Future Passed (featuring the Moody Blues’ signature song “Nights in White Satin”) heralded the era of the concept album and elaborate sleeve artwork that would epitomize the Progressive Rock movement that followed.
“I suppose that it is our songs, and the way we interpret them that has seen us travel so far,” says Justin Hayward. “It means so much to us that some of our recordings have really meant something to people.”
