The Truthful Patriot’s Corner
— This is the Moody Blues second album, Days of Future Passed, released
in 1967. It established them as pioneers in progressive rock.
I call The Moody Blues’ whole sound “music with the universe in it.”
This was the first Moodys’ album with that unique, universally
recognized, Moody Blues sound.

The Moody Blues second album, Days of Future Passed, released in 1967, established them as pioneers in progressive rock.
This album “made” The Moody Blues — get high on the possibilities of this music, with the real possibilities of the sound, and maybe you’ll begin to understand….. Quite a lot of music just as good as this is why The Moody Blues have such a loyal following, even today. Once in a while, a band does some things that are NOT just easy listening, but universal — truly the heart of progressive rock — and this recording could be said to transcend even the whole genre of progressive rock. (Buy better speakers, guys. Look, we’ll make it easy, here’s a whole range of Best Buy’s own Insignia speakers under $100. Even the basic $40 ones come with a subwoofer and sound great! Moreover, Best Buy carries a great line of Logitech speakers statrting at $47.) We’ll be listening to this recording more than once.

From Hippy Chick’s description on YouTube:
“‘Days of Future Passed,’ (the) first concept album by The Moody Blues, released in November 1967 on Deram Records. After 2 years performing as a struggling white R&B band, The Moody Blues were asked by their record label in September 1967 to record an adaptation of Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 as a stereo demonstration record. Instead, the band chose to record an orchestral song cycle about a typical working day. Recording sessions (were) at Decca Studios in West Hampstead, London during May to November 1967.”
See Wikipedia on The Moody Blues:
‘The Moody Blues are an English rock band. They first came to prominence playing rhythm and blues music, but their second album, Days of Future Passed, which was released in 1967, was a fusion of rock with classical music and established them as pioneers in the development of progressive rock. They became known internationally with singles including “Go Now”, “Nights in White Satin”, “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Question”. They have been awarded 18 platinum and gold discs. Their album sales total 70 million.
‘As of 2015 they remain active with one member from the original 1964 band (drummer Graeme Edge) and two more from the 1966 lineup (bassist John Lodge and lead singer and guitarist Justin Hayward).’
