Moody Blues: Seventh Sojourn

Simon Frith, Let It Rock, March 1973

IT'S THE BIG, BALD MOODY who scares me. There's a picture of his disembodied head floating across the inside of the sleeve, a look of maniac inspiration in his eyes. I don't know which one he is but I bet he plays the moog and inspires the words:

Oh can you feel the world is pining
Pining for someone who really cares
Enough to share his love
With all of us. So we can be
An ever loving family.

Yes, brothers and sisters,

Let's be God's children,
And live in perfect peace.
