3 stars The Moody Blues made a some sort of a come-back in 1993 with this album, which also can be founded as DVD. I won't comment only the album but also the DVD which is a nice way to know this band a bit more. All the golden oldies are there: Tuesday Afternoon, Question, I'm just a singer in a Rock and Roll Band. It's great to see those old song being kind of 'remastered'. 'I'm just a singer...' is surprinsingly punchy and catchy. I was surprised to clap hands and stomp my foot a lot. Justin Haward and John Lodge are in great shape (Haward's face seems timeless). Ray Thomas, the flautist, is doing a great job on Tuesday Afternoon and Nights in White Satin, his flute is more than welcome to enrich the sound already boosted up by the orchestra.(On the dvd, he is singning but, all he has was a tambourine, which we can't hear in the recording. He looks pretty alone in his corner too.) It's not a show that really stands out, but the performance by Haward and Lodge is remarquable. They give a good show (especially the guitar works of Haward), despite the shadow of a wheel chair. Man, they have more hair on their heads than me. It's a desease called: The Stone-that-Rolls-Syndrom. You keep your hair eternally but you do get a lot of laughs for trying too hard (no offense Keith). In concussion...er sorry, conclusion, try this instead of any 'best of', the sound is fresher and updated!

3 stars John (Lodge in) Denver

Red Rocks for those who have not had the pleasure of visiting it, is a natural amphitheatre near Denver in the USA, into which an outdoor concert arena has been built. A number of artists have released live albums recorded there, presumably due to the favourable acoustics.

This concert by the Moody Blues is available both on DVD and CD. Recently the CD was released in expanded format, incorporating the tracks which had previously only been available on CD and the "Time Traveller" box set bonus disk. The songs included in the concert are largely predictable, their live repertoire showing relatively minor variations over the years. There is no criticism in this, the tracks selected are among their best, and cover a good cross section of their albums.

The performance here is very good, and the songs are recreated pretty faithfully throughout. The addition of an orchestra does enhance the overall sound, but they are kept firmly in check in terms of the mix, with the band very much to the fore. There are some notable exceptions, such as the wonderful orchestral break on "Isn't life strange", which helps to give this majestic song an impressive new dimension.

In all, a good "Best of" package which manages to recreate the original studio performances well in a live environment.

3 stars When this album was released in 1993, a number of the customers in my CD store remarked upon how good this album was, so I had to request a copy from the vendor. Now this was the the first live album The Moody Blues had released since 1977's Caught Live +5, which demonstrated that, at least back then, the band was much more of a studio group than a live band, but many years had passed, perhaps this wwas better.

Well, the years had passed, and, with an orchestra replacing keyboardist Michael Pinder (and his replacement, Patrick Moraz), the band sounds quite good on the old material. However, in the sixteen years since the previous live album, The Moody Blues had become an adult contemporary radio staple, and their music shows it.

After an orchestral Overture and out of place Late Lament (I now prefer the parody "Breathe deep the gathering gloom. Pizza boxes fill your room. Roaches come to seal your doom...") the classics start with Tuesday Afternoon, which works quite well with an orchestra. For My Lady suffers some, without the chanted background vocals, and becomes overly melodramatic mush.

Five of the next seven songs are from more recent albums, and are nothing more than generic sounding AC fodder. Completely forgattable.

The album finally becomes worth it's cost with the last four songs. I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band), Nights In White Satin, Question and Ride My See- Saw are all so well done that it makes me wish they had played more of the classics, and skipped the more recent drivel.
