50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 2CD Plus DVD Set!

November 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of The Moody Blues' "Days of Future Passed", one of the first albums to fuse rock music with an orchestra (The London Festival Orchestra conducted by Peter Knight). Days of Future Passed is now regarded as one of the albums that gave birth to Progressive Rock.

This 2CD/DVD deluxe set includes the full original 1967 stereo mix, which is being released on CD here for the first time. Due to a damaged master tape of the original mix, the album had been remixed in stereo in 1972 and since then it is this later mix, which has been used on all CD reissues. Now that technology allows for the original master to be repaired, the album can be fully represented on CD1 of the set for the first time. This new set also includes a 5.1 surround sound mix derived from the original 1972 Quad mix. Additionally the DVD comprises previously unreleased video footage of the band performing three key tracks from the album at MIDEM on 24th January 1968, eight weeks after its release. The 2CD/DVD set includes a poster designed by Ray Thomas.

Days Of Future Passed was the Moody Blues’ landmark second album and is widely considered to have formally marked the beginning of their psychedelic era. Featuring the London Festival Orchestra, this richly orchestrated album followed in the wake of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s and Magical Mystery Tour but was in itself a unique and highly original piece of work. The album, of course, included the hits Tuesday Afternoon and the ever-enduring Nights In White Satin, thus rightfully recognising The Moody Blues as true pioneers in the development of progressive rock.

The Moody Blues have been at the forefront of the UK’s classic rock music scene for over forty years and have continued to be a mainstay of concert stages, recording studios and the airwaves to the present day. During their immensely successful career, they have sold, according to the band’s files, in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been the recipients of numerous prestigious awards.
