The Moody Blues' 'Days Of Future Passed' Celebrated With 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

The Moody Blues' 'Days Of Future Passed' Celebrated With 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition


New York, NY (Top40 Charts / UMe) The Moody Blues' Days Of Future Passed will be celebrated with an expanded 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition to be released November 17 by UMe. The deluxe 2CD/DVD and digital audio edition features the album's newly restored original 1967 stereo mix, which makes its CD debut here. Due to a damaged master tape of the original mix, the album was remixed in stereo in 1972; this later mix has been used for the album's subsequent CD reissues. Today's technology has allowed for the original stereo master to be repaired, and the new 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition pairs that original album mix with the 1972 stereo mix. The commemorative set also features nine BBC Radio session performances, as well as a DVD with a new 5.1 surround sound mix derived from the album's original 1972 Quad mix, plus previously unreleased video footage of the band performing three key Days Of Future Passed tracks at MIDEM on January 24, 1968, eight weeks after the album's release. The set also includes a poster designed by Ray Thomas. On the same date, the album's restored 1967 stereo mix will also be released on 180-gram vinyl.

Days Of Future Passed was the Moody Blues' landmark second album and is widely considered to have formally marked the beginning of the band's psychedelic era. Featuring the London Festival Orchestra, this richly orchestrated album followed in the wake of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour but was in itself a unique and highly original piece of work. The album includes the hits "Tuesday Afternoon" and the ever-enduring "Nights In White Satin," which established the Moody Blues as true pioneers in the development of progressive rock.

The Moody Blues' Days Of Future Passed 50th Anniversary Tour continues in January 2018 with U.S. dates on sale now. For details, visit moodybluestoday.com.

Currently nominated for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2018, The Moody Blues have been at the forefront of the UK's classic rock music scene for fifty years and have continued to be a mainstay of concert stages, recording studios and the airwaves to the present day. During their immensely successful career, they have sold, according to the band's files, more than 70 million albums worldwide and have been the recipients of numerous prestigious awards.
