Between the two albums I feel like I have the best of what this group put out over it's long history. Don't know much about what went on in the studio to put together their music history but they certainly deserve a round of applause for their output. Great album covers as well!
P.S. I just noticed this is my 777th post....very cosmic number in some circles!

The first album I heard with the Moodies was "A Question of Balance"! And I fell for it kinda right away. At first glance the songs could be perceived as simple pop songs, but the more you listened the more you discovered. Not to mention the exellent use of the Mellotron! This album still holds a strong affectional value, of course, but... (there's always). Nowadays, apart from the superb 3-DVD box from Classic Artists "The Moody Blues Their full story..", it seems to be "To our Childrens Childrens Children" or "On the Threshold of a Dream" I choose to listen too..
However, the first nine albums: From "Go Now" (1965) to "Seventh Sojourn" (1972) are all must haves, I think! Well, I am a collector..
