180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso from Original Threshold Records Tapes!

A Question of Balance was another huge platinum plus # 1 smash for The Moody Blues and a stellar continuance of their progressive rock sound for the fans of this legendary English quintet. Featuring the original award winning line-up of Justin Hayward (lead vocals/guitars), John Lodge (lead vocals/bass), Ray Thomas (lead vocals/flutes), Ray Pinder (lead vocals/keyboards) and Graeme Edge (drums/vocals), A Question of Balance is undoubtedly one of their biggest selling albums and also one of the most revered offerings in their huge catalog.

Buoyed by the success of the huge hit single "Question," their sixth album was filled with more melodic rockers like the powerful Ray Thomas classic "And the Tide Rushes In," John Lodge's workout on "Tortoise and the Hare," plus the legendary Mike Pinder masterpiece "How Is It (We Are Here)."

The wonderful release also features a fine array of songs from the lead vocalist and guitar master Justin Hayward including the aforementioned smash hit "Question" as well as "Dawning Is the Day" and the steel guitar prog-rocker "It's Up to You."

The brilliant drum work and hip vocal styling of Graeme Edge are featured on the classic "Don't You Feel Small" as well as the definitive album closer "The Balance."

The beauty of this album is that you could always count on a classic listen from these five gentlemen of song. Featuring Ray Thomas' striking vocals and flute delivery, Justin Hayward's and John Lodge's guitars and vocal acumen, the magic of Ray Pinder on the keys and classic vocal, plus Graeme Edge's powerful drum and singing, A Question of Balance became the album of choice for radio programmers in 1970. All in all, a hypnotic and spirited set from this very important and much loved classic rock band.
