Moody Blues to released three-LP colored-vinyl version of “Live at the BBC” collection


Polydor/UMeThe archival Moody Blues album Live at the BBC: 1967–1970, which originally was issued digitally and as a two-CD set in 2007, is now making its global vinyl debut. It’ll come out as a limited-edition three-LP collection on April 26.

Each of the release’s three LPs will be pressed onto a different color 180-gram vinyl disc: Disc one is light blue; disc two is dark blue; and disc three is yellow. The individually numbered collection can be pre-ordered now.

Live at the BBC features 41 Moody Blues performances from various BBC radio and TV programs between 1967 to 1970. Among the well-known songs featured on the album: “Nights in White Satin,” “Ride My See-Saw,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Gypsy,” “Legend of a Mind” and “Question.”

Multiple versions of quite a few tunes appear on Live at the BBC, since The Moody Blues played the same songs on different BBC shows.

The album also includes eight performances from a December 17, 1969, appearance on a BBC Live in Concert special.
