Seventh Sojourn was a huge multi-platinum smash for The Moody Blues and a stellar example of how important their symphonic and progressive rock sound was 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), Mike Pinder (lead vocals/keyboards) and Graeme Edge (drums/vocals), Seventh Sojourn is undoubtedly one of their biggest selling albums and also one of the most revered in their huge catalog.
Buoyed by the success of the two smash hit singles Isnt Life Strange and their definitive follow up rocker Im Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band), Seventh Sojourn was filled with more masterful works like the powerful Ray Thomas classic For My Lady, John Lodges masterpiece When Youre a Free Man, plus the Justin Hayward and Graeme Edge prog-rock collaboration You and Me.
The wonderful release also features a fine array of songs from vocalist and keyboard whiz Mike Pinder including the stunning LP opener Lost in a Lost World, Justin Haywards soulful anthem New Horizons, as well as his ever popular The Land of Make-Believe.
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 Haywards and John Lodges guitars and vocal acumen, the magic of Mike Pinder on the keys and classic vocal, plus Graeme Edges powerful drum and singing, Seventh Sojourn became the album of choice for radio programmers in 1972.
Although Seventh Sojourn is four decades young, it stands as a modern day classic to this day, while The Moody Blues truly recorded one of the finest works ever in the album rock era.
This amazing album has been out of print on vinyl for many years, that is until now.
