Warum? Gemeint ist hiermit die "Maxiversion" 17.CDs/DVDs, nicht die "Miniversionen" (2-4.CD-Box). Von den Studioaufnahmen gibt es hier nichts neues. Lediglich die hier gebotenen Liveaufnahmen von 1978/1983 waren unveröffentlicht und oder kursierten als Bootlegs in schlechter Qualität.

Das 1969 Konzert aus der Royal Albert Hall ist nicht neu, wurde schon 1977 als "CAUGHT LIVE PLUS 5" herausgebracht. Neu hier sind noch Livekonzerte von 1992/1997. Aber unvollständig! Und erstmalig das Livekonzert von 1975 der BLUE JAYS (die Splittergroup von Hayward/Lodge), nur leider nicht komplett. Warum man das erst jetzt nach fast 40. Jahren herausbringt...................

Ebenso besitzt der Fan schon auch 90% des Video/DVD-Materials. Ärgerlich ist das Paris-Konzert von 1970 in Halbplayback und wurde schon 2004 veröffentlicht. Warum dann diese Wiederveröffentlichungen? Interessanter wäre es da schon gewesen Live-Mitschnitte von 1964 - 1969 z.B. aus dem französischen TV (sind auf You Tube zu sehen) zu besorgen und diese auf DVD zu bringen.

Also für den Altfan wenig neues. Nur der Neueinsteiger wird hier bestens bedient. Vor allem wird hier besonders die innovative, kreative Phase der Moodys in der Zeit von 1967 - 1972 gewürdigt. Überragende Klangqualität bei den Alben "Days of Future Passed - Seventh Sojourn". Nie zuvor waren die Alben so transparent. Überrascht wird man von "MY SONG" von "Every good boy deserves Favour" und "EYES OF A CHILD von "TO OUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN CHILDREN". In dieser überragenden Klangqualität hat man den mehrstimmigen Gesang noch nie gehört. Also im SURROUNDMIX.

es geht nicht um die Box, wir würden niemals 150,- Mücken für Pop-Musik ausgeben, aber wir sind über diesen verknorpelten Sprachmüll gestolpert:

"Slipcase", "Mixen", "Outtakes" und was des verquasten Denglischmülls noch mehr ist.

Dafür müßte man eigentlich 150,- Mücken Schmerzensgeld erhalten, allein fürs Gelesenhabenmüssen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Embarrassment of Riches (for the highly dedicated fan and/or the very well-heeled) 28. Dezember 2013
Von Bruce Eder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
NOTE: THIS REVIEW -- WHICH IS A WORK IN PROGRESS STARTED IN LATE DECEMBER OF 2013, AS I GET FROM DISC TO DISC -- APPLIES TO THE 17-DISC "SUPER-DELUXE" VERSION OF TIMELESS FLIGHT.

I resisted buying this set from long before the point where it was issued, having been A) burned by previous Universal "super-deluxe" issues, specifically the Derek * The Dominos Layla Anniversary box of a couple of years back; and B) not seeing too much that leaped out at me as "essential," versus at least three discs (the DVD-Audio platters) that seemed superfluous. But over the five months that followed, the innate appeal of the whole package worked on me sub-rosa, as it were, and by the start of December I was checking prices from various sources. And just before Christmas, I finally gave in and ordered it.

Let's start with the packaging. None of these sets is exactly ideal for quick access, but this one beats the Layla box (which had a disaster of a hardcover book) by a mile and, by all reports, stands head-and-shoulders above the Pink Floyd mega-set (the recording-spanning one) in terms of convenience and avoiding damaged discs. The latter all come in properly proportioned pockets that hold them without damaging them in removing or replacing them, the CDs in one book-style jacket and the DVDs in the other. And the hardcover book is easily a $50-$60 item by itself in design and content -- a little bigger and it could easily have been on the old Harry Abrams publishing list. These are augmented by posters, vintage programs (including a fitting remembrance of longtime band friend Nicky James) etc.

CD 1 is all I've listened to as of 12/28/13, and there's nothing on it that I haven't known for at least 35 (and most of it more like 40) years. And it made my ears jump in delight -- the detail and musical textures revealed in the 1966/early 1967 singles were exquisite, and the original mixes on the DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED material, although not a revelation, were very satisfying to hear. But it's there stuff I wasn't looking for that really stood out -- the layers of instrumentation on IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CHORD have long been known to me, but the layers of percussion on "Legend of a Mind" is something relatively new to behold and marvel over. Graeme Edge might not be Bill Bruford or Carl Palmer, or Michael Giles, but he has his moments of grandeur here. And the first disc has lots of moments like that, all in sharp relief.

CD 2 doesn't have as many revelatory moments, although the sheer fineness of the sound, heard across the group's history from 1967 thru 1971, makes it almost intoxicating. The fact is that the group's albums of this era are very much cohesive units, which don't lend themselves easily to excerpting -- the songs, excellent though they might be, lose some of their familiar collective power when removed from their proper surroundings -- but this long, leisurely look at their development and most of the high points of the first six albums does have an intoxicating power all of its own, especially with the optimal masters of each song utilized. (For me, the most amazingly part of Disc Two was how glorious "Melancholy Man" -- a song I did not like when I first heard it, 40-some years ago -- comes out here).

CD 3 covers the tail-end of the classic era into the solo years, and holds up astonishingly well -- the solo period gives us highlights from BLUE JAYS and also off of FROM MIGHTY OAKS, the first Graeme Edge album, and THE PROMISE that fit together almost seamlessly -- it wouldn't be impossible to imagine an alternate reality in which most of that material would have been done by the five principals, and it stands well on its own terms.

I should say that listening to the array of material assembled here, in the order in which it is put together, gives one an easy overview/explanation/account of the transition to the members' hiatus years efforts -- indeed, one sort of wishes that the solo and duo efforts had been represented slightly more fully; obviously, most fans would have the standard Blue Jays issues (more about them later), so there's not too much to add there, but the Ray Thomas, Michael Pinder, and Graeme Edge solo material might have been very slightly better represented (and how come none of John Lodge's NATURAL AVENUE is included?).

CDs 4 and 5 survey the rest of the band's history in thorough manner, and then we come to CD 6, which is the Royal Albert Hall concert (from CAUGHT LIVE+ FIVE), all too familiar. It's with CD 7 that we get to the first "new" material, a live performance by Justin Hayward and John Lodge coinciding with the release of BLUE JAYS. For many fans this would be a major reason to pick up this set, and it has its virtues, as well as some drawbacks. Hayward and Lodge sound great together, but whenever they're doing Moody Blues material one misses the voices of Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder -- the drumming is superior to much of what we've gotten from Moody Blues shows, and the keyboard playing and other accompaniment is highly accomplished, but the vocal limitations of the pair make that end of the performance sound like Moody Blues-lite. Additionally, this band needed more rehearsal, and the recording engineers needed more time to get their equipment into optimal locations -- there's a roughness to the overall sound that probably explains why this show was never given a free-standing release.

Disc 12 is a DVD comprised of some of the group's 1960's/1970's television appearances and promotional films -- the COLOUR ME POP show is the highlight, although we're dealing with miming on everything here. The directors have a field day finding ways of presenting the band effectively across most (though pointedly not all) of the album, and the group members seem very much into what they're doing to various degrees -- Ray Thomas the most sincere, Graeme Edge the most enthusiastic etc. The later promo films, from OCTAVE, are odd as two of the three feature a four-man Moody Blues (harbinger of things to come . . . .), and the promotional film for the group's re-union covers the matter of Mike Pinder's replacement by Patrick Moraz with the reference to "the membership change on keyboards." The disc is at least well-produced and easy to maneuver around, and the COLOUR ME POP show is properly (and impressively) psychedelic in tone, in terms of images and color. More to follow.
5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm in Moody Heaven! 30. Mai 2015

This is the definitive Moody Blues collection. If you're a Moodies fan, and you have many of their studio albums, you don't have what this set offers. Of course there is the collection of studio songs, remastered, but that's just the beginning. There's also several discs of live performances from the 60's to the 90's. My favorite is the LA Forum from 83', unbelievable show, everyone on their game! Patrick Moraz really shines live and the whole band was at full strength. The DVD portion of the set is great too. Live footage, music videos, and new quadraphonic mixes of 6 early albums! I've been a huge fan for many years, seen them live maybe 20 times, and I cannot stop listening to this set for the past month since I got it. If you love this band, treat yourself and go for it, I can't imagine you would have any regrets.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Voyage Continues....`cause we ain't there yet 25. Juni 2013
Von Steven G Bogdanoff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So how is this new Moody Blues box set? On it's own merits, I rate it a 5. Very well packaged, very extensive in content, good sound, decent video and another surround format to add to the collection.

But is this the end-all Holy Grail of Moody Blues lost treasures? No.

In fact, strictly looking at the studio work (discs 1-5). There is NOTHING that is really new. A much better overall collection was Time Traveller. Released back around 1998, the Moodies have only released 2 additional studio works (Strange Time & December), represented by only 5 tracks in this collection.

There are several tracks marked as "previously unreleased on CD," and this is could be kind of misleading. There are really no "significant" alternate versions. Here is a quick breakdown of those studio tracks:
"Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin" (original 67 stereo mix) WERE released on Time Traveller, although these tracks do sound a tiny bit cleaner.
"Dawn is a Feeling" and "Peak Hour" (original 67 stereo mix) are truly NEW to this collection (Yeah!)
The next 3 were remixed/edited in 1977 by Tony Clarke for the aborted follow-up compilation to "This Is The Moody Blues" (Vol. 2?)
Eternity Road: NEW version; clean intro (not segue fade-in); very (very) minute differences in the mix; quicker fade (4:04 vs. 4:19 TOCCC)
"It's Up To You" NEW version; again very (very) minute differences in the mix (re-mix of the double tracked vocal are more centered; quicker fade (3:05 vs. 3:12 QOB / 3:23 QOB-bonus track)
"When You're A Free Man": NEW "edited" version; clean intro (not segue fade-in); 30 seconds of 3rd verse cut-out (why?); quicker fade (5:04 vs. 6:05 SS)
Several of the other studio tracks from discs 1-5 are have been "slightly" edited (altered track length) to deal with the fact that most of the original Moody tracks would segue to the next. On this collection those tracks that were originally joined (i.e. Dawning is the Day - Melancholy Man) the segue remains. Those tracks that they decided not to include either the prior and/or original following track was edited to fade in or out as needed. Most of the edits are acceptable. I do cringe at the "new" into to "Are You Sitting Comfortably" which leads off Disc 2. There is the distracting (to me) edit from the proceeding track (Lazy Day) from the original masters.
The big let down for me is not including the entire 67 stereo mix of DOFP, as it was alluded to in the Prog Magazine article.

All the other "rarities" were for the most part were included in the 2007 Deluxe re-issues. These were fantastic collections and included both a hi-resolution stereo and surround version of the album as a SACD. Apparently these are now out of print, but I've still seen them in local record stores and available here on Amazon. The original digi-packs have been replaced with standard jewel cases. but they DO include most of the bonus material, but not the high-rez SACD copy.

The 5.1 surround disc here are the same 70's quad mixes, but now on lower-resolution DVD video discs using Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1. There is video that accompanies the audio. Looks reminiscence of a late 60's psychedelia light show.

Big draw with this set has to be for those wanting the live material. Some very good (Blue Jays concert). To the,... well it's been said that the band had trouble trying to reproduced the heavily overdubbed studio recordings live (Albert Hall 1969). Includes some additional Red Rocks live tracks that were originally only available on the initial 5-disc copies of Time Traveller, and then later as part of the deluxe 2 disc edition of Red Rocks. Truly new is the complete live show from the LA Forum. This is special to me as I was at that particular concert.

The video clips are pretty standard, most have been available here and there over the years. The performance clips (Beat Club, Colour Me Pop, Lulu) are fun to see the group in their early days. But these are generally lip synced or added live lead vocal to the recorded backing track. Some of the video performance audio was released on CD as part of "Live At The BBC"

I'm sure that anyone truly interested in getting this set has already seen the You-Tube un-boxing video so I won't add much about it's contents except for the following:
Not one of my seventeen discs were scratched (amazing); and the box came packaged in a spongy foam "outer box" all sealed in an form fitting cardboard box (which was then packaged in an oversized Amazon box. Very impressive.

The included 120 page book is very impressive. A lot of PR photos and single and album art. But there are several photo glitches when they scanned in album art for Threshold Of A Dream, To Our Children's Children..., Question of Balance, Seventh Sojourn, Long Distance Voyager, as well as the wrong disc info for Long Distance Voyager.

So who is this collection for? For the must have everything, in every form Moody Blues fan. To which I'm a victim. A fan like me already has collections like: This Is the Moody Blues, and Time Traveller. Even a few of the lesser titles (Voices in the Sky, Anthology) just to get that slightly different song edit/mix. The various live albums/videos. And of coarse they already have the deluxe editions of the classic 7, So this collection does not give me anything I do not already have in the way of studio recordings. It does however provide some live material no longer available (Albert Hall: "Caught Live + 5"), unreleased material (Forum concert and Blue Jays concert - crown gem of this collection actually).

So what is missing? For my holy grail, this should have included all the material from the Deluxe Editions (the complete classic 7 albums), plus the 67 original stereo mix of DOFP, the inclusion of "Gimme A Little Something" the last of the "+5" not included in the deluxe editions (but was available on out-of-print "Prelude" CD. And a book that was proof-read.

Ah, but the voyage continues. You never know. Isn't life strange?

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must for hard core Moody Blues fans 11. Juni 2014

Very pricey, but if you are a hard core Moody Blues fan, you will appreciate the remastering of 95% of their work. A little disappointed they did not include a couple of my favorites off of the Keys of the Kingdom album. I guess it's impossible to please everyone. Still glad I bought it.
