Celebrate 3 Decades of The Moody Blues' Wildest Dreams!
First Time 180 Gram Vinyl & Gatefold Presentation
Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (The Moody Blues)
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Original Threshold Records Tapes
In 1986, The Moody Blues' "The Other Side of Life" album and their top charting hit single "Your Wildest Dreams," truly made this one of the most important chapters in their stellar career. Not only did millions of fans support this incredible masterwork, but it also received accolades from the young fans of MTV, which garnered the legends a Billboard Video of the Year award for the smash hit song. "The Other Side Of Life" Lp features nine stunning performances from the talents of Justin Hayward (guitar/vocals), John Lodge (bass/vocals), Patrick Moraz (keyboards & formerly of Yes), Ray Thomas (flutes/vocals) and Graeme Edges (drums/vocals).
The top ten album achieved platinum status, with even more smashes like "Rock and Roll Over You" and the brilliant "The Other Side Of Life", which takes the listener back to their "Days Of Future Passed" into the modern era of "Long Distance Voyager."
Power ballads were always Justin Hayward's specialty as "I Just Don't Care Anymore" chalks up another home run, along with the hard rockin' "Running Out Of Love" both of which made this one of The Moodies most popular albums.
Friday Music is honored to announce the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition of The Moody Blues masterpiece "The Other Side Of Life." Mastered impeccably by long time friend and fan Joe Reagoso, this superlative first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Lp is also featured in a first time gatefold cover presentation for a very limited time.

Moody Blues: Collected4 Page Booklet With Liner Notes And Photos
Solid Selection Of Songs By The Band's Career, Including Go Now, Nights In White Satin, Never Comes The Day, Gypsy, I Never Thought I'd Live To Be A Hundred, I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock 'n Roll Band) And Many More
The Moody Blues formed in the early 1960s in Erdington, Birmingham, England. Ray Thomas, John Lodge, and Michael Pinder had been members of El Riot & the Rebels. They disbanded when Lodge went to college and Pinder joined the army. The pair recruited guitarist/vocalist Denny Laine, band manager-turned drummer Graeme Edge, and bassist Clint Warwick. The five appeared as the Moody Blues for the first time in Birmingham in 1964.
It was the single, Go Now (released later that year), which launched their career. The single became a huge hit in the U.K. and landed the number 1 spot in the charts. The band soon realised that their style of R&B-derived rock and pop was not working for them and decided to develop an original new style, featuring the symphonic sounds of the mellotron and Ray Thomas' flute.
Assigned to make a rock and roll version of Antonin Dvorák's New World Symphony, Moody Blues insisted that they be given artistic freedom and be left without supervision. The result was Days of Future Passed (1967), which combined the band's tracks with orchestral interludes arranged and conducted by Peter Knight. The album plus two singles, Nights in White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon, became substantial hits.
Their follow-up album was In Search of the Lost Chord (1968). The album was again a big success with hits as Ride My See-Saw and Voices in the Sky. Their next album On a Threshold of a Dream (1969) featured the sensitive ballad Never Comes a Day and was their first number 1 album in the U.K.
The band's music continued to become more complex and symphonic, resulting in 1969's To Our Children's Children's Children, a concept album. It closes with the fan-favorite Watching and Waiting. To Our Children's Children's Children was also the first release of the group's own founded label, Threshold Records.
Released in 1981, Long Distance Voyager was a success, reaching number 1 on Billboard and top 5 in the U.K. The album featured the hit, The Voice, written by Hayward.
The remaining Moody Blues trio continues to tour and to this day the Moody Blues are one of classic rock's most enduring institutions, with world-wide sales of nearly 80 million albums and a following that continues to support the band. COLLECTED by Moody Blues is a careful selection of the distinctive sound of the band, presenting the different periods the band has gone through.LP 1
