In The Studio With Moody Blues On the 40th anniversary of the Moody Blues’ A Question of Balance , a #1 album in the UK , #3 in America , our guests Justin Hayward , John Lodge , & Graeme Edge chronicle the four albums they recorded post- Days of Future Passed in the dizzying space of barely three years . By now , you probably know the story of how the Moody Blues stumbled upon the combination of pop/rock songs arranged with orchestral accompaniment on Days… , but none of the lads were prepared either for the overwhelming acclaim as “serious” musicians nor the challenges to pulling off these complex arrangements live in a pre-digital world . The Beatles’ Sgt.Pepper… may have been the clarion call signaling rock’n'roll’s boundless potential , but the Moody Blues answered it in a most impressive way with On a Threshold of a Dream , In Search of the Lost Chord , the under-appreciated To Our Children’s Children’ Children , bookending with 1970’s #1-seller A Question of Balance . -Redbeard
