Synopsis by Mark Deming
While The Moody Blues scored their first international hit with an R&B-flavored tune called "Go Now", it was with their ambitious album Days Of Future Passed that the band truly made their mark, and their blend of psychedelic and progressive sounds (as well as their willingness to go beyond the boundaries of the traditional rock band format by incorporating flutes, melotrons, and sometimes full orchestras into their recordings) earned them a large and loyal following as one of the most adventurous British bands of their day. The Moody Blues: Legend Of A Band is a documentary which looks back at the band's history, and includes video clips and performance footage of some of the group's best songs. Selections include "Nights In White Satin", "Question", "I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band)", "Tuesday Afternoon", "The Story In Your Eyes", and many more.
