The Moody Blues

“The Moody Blues are still the Sistine Chapel of popular music.” – Rolling Stone

In an endless sea of rock and pop formats, The Moody Blues have distinguished themselves through four decades as that shimmering jewel vindicating rock music as a substantial artistic contribution to Western culture. Since the 60’s, as a part of the historic original British invasion of Supergroups, The Moody Blues have lit up the hearts and minds of millions of rock fans with inspiring anthems like “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” which express universal themes of love, compassion and peace. The band’s unique style of music consistently finds airplay on radio stations globally and continues to illuminate concert arenas around the world. From being immortalized on The Simpsons to having their music featured in movies, television and in national advertisement campaigns such as VISA, The Moody Blues are embedded in not only music history but in pop culture.

The band and Universal Music Enterprises (Ume) recently released The Moody Blues’ new definitive, career-spanning collection, TIMELESS FLIGHT, in both 17-disc and four-CD configurations. The 17-disc set is housed in an LP-sized hardbound slipcase and includes 11 CDs of digitally re-mastered album tracks, previously unreleased mixes and outtakes, and complete concert recordings. It also includes three DVDs of rare television performances, promotional videos and a previously unreleased concert film; in addition to three DVD-Audio discs of long out-of-print 5.1 album mixes, a 120-page hardback collector’s book, faithful reproductions of Moody Blues memorabilia, and more. The four-CD TIMELESS FLIGHT boxed anthology culls audio highlights from the larger collection, including standout album tracks, singles and B-sides, previously unreleased mixes, and concert and radio performances.
