Been a long time since I heard that - back in my sixth form days. Wasn't a member of the cognoscenti then, opinion of those who were was fairly sharply divided. Ought to hear it again.


Indeed - well worth it!

My fingers hovered over purchasing that at twenty quid.

But I bought Tull, Blue Oyster Cult and China Crisis this week already.

Fabulous again. A total gem of an album.

To Reap. And departed proggers everywhere.

Go for it Chris

I recall the Newcastle gig was found on a cassette in Blinky’s loft after he died

They tidied it up and it is excellent

A nice package - go for it lad!

I’m Playing Credo as I type

Blinky was sometimes criticised for his limited tubs, okay he’s no Carl Palmer, but the playing here is excellent

As you were

I am playing Patrick Moraz’s debut solo album - The Story of I

It is a very fine album

Great keyboards and superb percussitivity!!

Moraz’s wife plays castanets!

Views on Patrick in general?

Are the Moody Blues albums, to which the lad contributed, any good…?

No. He was on Long Distance Voyager. He’s no Mike Pinder.

Looking at Wiki, I understand he was on a few more

Moraz is a great player but perhaps not suited to The Moodies (or their style)
