Sixties – Rise of the Moody Blues
The band came into existence in 1964, when the duo Ray Thomas and Michael Pinder- then known as Krew Cats- recruited drummer Graeme Edge, guitarist Denny Laine and bassist Clint Warwick. The pentad first appeared as a group in Birmingham in 1964, taking their name ‘Moody Blues’ from a Brewery called M&B. The same year, the band signed a contract with Decca Records and released a single ‘Steal Your Heart Away’. However, it was their second single ‘Go Now’, released shortly after the first one that put them on the road to success. The single climbed to number one on British Charts and secured tenth position on United States’ Charts. The debut album by the group released in 1965 titled ‘The Magnificent Moodies’, which finally established the band as an unavoidable name in the field of rock music.
The Inimitable Success
The first full studio album by the remarkable group came out in 1967, titled ‘Days of Future Passed’. Breaking several records, the album stayed at the top of the Billboard charts for over two years. This album not only marked a milestone in the history of rock recording, but it also proved to be one of the pioneers of concept and style in music, followed by several generations to come. The group also proved itself to be ahead of the curve when they consistently toured in Great Britain and Europe, and followed with another release ‘In search of the Lost Chord’. Following the smashing success once again, the Moody Blues began their concert tour in United States and started garnering legions of fans by the day. The band is still incredibly popular with rock fans and demand for the Moody Blues tickets is still soaring high.
