Justin Hayward And John Lodge

Justin Hayward (b. Swindon, October 14, 1946; full name David Justin Hayward) got his first guitar at age nine. In 1965, he joined pre-Beatles English rocker Marty Wilde as a member of his backing band, the Wilde Cats. By the end of 1965, Hayward had four songs that he felt ready to record on his own, which led him to former skiffle king-turned-producer Lonnie Donegan. It was Donegan's intention to record the songs himself, but Hayward insisted upon recording them, and Donegan duly agreed to serve as producer. Released by Pye Records on the last day of 1965, Hayward's solo recording debut "London Is Behind Me" vanished from sight without a trace. The follow-up, "I Can't Face the World Without You," was released by Parlophone on August 26, 1966, to similar results. It was at this same time that Hayward answered Eric Burdon's ad for a lead guitarist. But Burdon had already filled the spot, and offered the Moody Blues -- who were in the market for a new guitarist/singer to replace Denny Laine, who had quit earlier that year -- their pick of responses filling mail sacks in his office. Hayward's letter was picked out by Ray Thomas, and he was called by Mike Pinder. A meeting between the two, and a subsequent meeting with the band, brought Hayward into the Moody Blues lineup permanently.

For the first six months, the group continued doing the R&B-based repertory that they'd been known for prior to Hayward's arrival. Gradually, however, they began to work new songs into their stage act and their recording schedule, which took a big jump when the group was picked by Decca/London Records to participate in a stereo-demonstration record mixing rock and orchestral sounds. The resulting album, Days of Future Passed (1967), revived the band's fortunes, not least through the success of a Justin Hayward song called "Nights in White Satin." Although Hayward proved he could also rock out, he quickly became established as the romantic/mystic of the band, known not only for "Nights in White Satin" but songs such as "New Horizons" and "Your Wildest Dreams."

Hayward's career as a solo artist began in 1977 with the release of Songwriter, which displayed a somewhat leaner and more lively, acoustically textured sound than his work with the Moody Blues. He followed this up in 1980 with Night Flight, a major departure from his work with the group, with very much of a belated disco sound. During the next several years, Hayward devoted much of his attention to the revived Moody Blues, who had a full touring and recording schedule in front of them. His Moving Mountains (1985) was strongly reminiscent of his earlier work with the band from the start of the 1970s. Since then, when he is not working with the band and writing new material (his "Your Wildest Dreams" reached number nine in America in 1986), Hayward seems to devote his time to reviving older Moody Blues songs in solo settings, as on the 1994 release Classic Blue in which he sings Moody Blues songs with orchestral accompaniment. A guitarist of great skill and a unique sound, Hayward remained one of the few stars of the 1960s who retained a devoted international following into the 1990s, though most critics -- as with the Moody Blues -- had ceased to consider him a serious contemporary artist. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

Brings back great memories!
I consider this album to the true eighth album of the core Moodies.
Seems to be a bit of dislike for Classic Blue, here....Not all Moodies here. Single album by Justin alone. Still very easy to listen to!
Me and You CB
I've been a Moodies since 1967 and they just get better and better ,RRHOF just don't know good music when they hear it ,for 40 plus years should say something of it's self look around and see what last that long that speck for it's self........ . . . . . . .

The RRHOF are a bunch of snobs who probably would have voted to keep Led Zeppelin out except for the fact that it would have made made them a complete laughing-sto c k .
Who cares what the RRHOF thinks? I have been a Moodies fan since 1970 when I heard The Story in Your Eyes on AM radio, and soon thereafter bought all their albums. However, with the exception of
Classic Blue, and a very few of their later sons, I never liked anything after Octave. Blue Jays is one of my top favorites. Justin's and John's voices are among the very best of rock singers.
RRHOF means nothing to the Moody Blues. It is only important to the fans. The RRHOF is a joke. This is the greatest band of all time.

Love Justin and the Moodies. However, Classic Blue did not contain Moody Blues songs - it contained classics by other artists such as Only God Knows, Stairway to Heaven and Vincent.
