Days of Future Passed, the groundbreaking debut album by The Moody Blues, will be celebrated with an expanded 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition to be released Nov. 17 by UMe. The deluxe 2-CD/DVD and digital audio edition features the album’s newly restored original 1967 stereo mix, which makes its CD debut here.

According to a press release, “Due to a damaged master tape of the original mix, the album was remixed in stereo in 1972; this later mix has been used for the album’s subsequent CD reissues. Today’s technology has allowed for the original stereo master to be repaired, and the new 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition pairs that original album mix with the 1972 stereo mix. The commemorative set also features nine BBC Radio session performances.

Listen to their cover of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” which became a huge hit for the Animals in 1965

The collections includes a DVD with a new 5.1 surround sound mix derived from the album’s original 1972 Quad mix, plus previously unreleased video footage of the band performing three key Days Of Future Passed tracks at MIDEM on January 24, 1968, eight weeks after the album’s release. The set also includes a poster designed by Ray Thomas. On the same date, the album’s restored 1967 stereo mix will also be released on 180-gram vinyl.”
