    No not sad City fans...

    I was sad though to hear that Ray Thomas had died, I always liked his voice and his flute playing. He was an extremely nice bloke, RIP Ray.

    This is a Moody Blues worthy track from his solo album.

    RIP Ray.
    I went to their "farewell" concert at the Free Trade Hall in the early 70s.

    They made more comebacks than Frank Sinatra after that.

    I saw them 4 times, the last being at The Apollo on ‘Long distance voyager’ tour. RIP Ray

    Never got into them but I liked a lot of similar stuff so maybe I should give them a listen. What’s a good album to start with?

    Either 'Days of Future Passed' or 'Threshold of a Dream'. Their two best imo

    Was only listening to War of the Worlds the other day and my wifes favourite song came blasting through ... "Forever Autumn".
    We saw The Moody Blues at The Apollo some 10 years ago.Superb band.

    Great opening to the album. The first album I heard of theirs.
