The Moody Blues
Here I am again, deciding to let another band into my life. This time's it's The Moody Blues. I first heard of them way back when "Your Wildest Dreams" was all over MTV in 1986-87. I ordered An Introduction to the Moody Blues from emusic because it covered the early period with Denny Laine (as well as once having the bootleg Time is on My Side), which seems like a whole other band. "Nights in White Satin" and "Tuesday Afternoon" still get radio airplay in both the US and UK.
I'm almost kicking myself for not seeing them in August at the Turning Stone Casino, but I need to familiarise myself with them more first. I'm sure they'll be back again someday.
I have some of Patrick Moraz's solo albums, but I know him more as a former member of Yes.
