A 2-LP imported version of a Moody Blues hits package is being released on July 21. The double 180g audiophile pressing features 24 of the group’s songs. The album, Collected, has been available as a CD edition since it was released in 2007 and includes 54 tracks.

A full song listing and order info for the CD version is here.

The vinyl version spans the group’s success from their early #1 U.K. hit, “Go Now,” through “Nights in White Satin” and “Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)” from their elaborate Days of Future Passed album, as well as such favorites as “Ride My See-saw,” “Question,” “The Story in Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)” and “The Voice” among its 24 songs. Pre-order is available here. (See the full track listing below.)

The Moody Blues are in the midst of a 50th anniversary North American amphitheater tour of Days of Future Passed. It ends July 23 and there has been no announcement of bringing it to other markets. Tickets are available here and here. They are often at the top of fan lists of classic rock acts that are inexplicably not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    I just saw the Moody Blues perform an album that is 50 years old, in front of a SOLD OUT crowd. How in the hell are they not worthy of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? Jan Wenner and his minions at Rolling Stone ought to be ashamed of their obvious bias against progressive rock, and don’t get me started on their treatment of ELP…..
