The Moody Blues’ seventh album released in 1971 shows the band’s creative energy in establishing a unique spot in both music and content. It clearly represents the group’s ambitious efforts to acquire a solid-smash album that contains all the good things that you can think of. Furthermore, the album is named for the Mnemonic of E-G-B-D-F musical notes. In return, the album had generated an outstanding spot in the charts both UK and the US, and for the record as good as this one, it is indeed well-deserved.
Every Good Boy Deserves Favour’s introductory song is the only track to be written by amongst the 5 members. Its creativity is at its peak, with the song being the group’s version of depicting the history of music. It’s a must-hear instrumental for everybody.
“The Story In Your Eyes”
This song is a favorite among the Moody Blues’ live performances, and it certainly shows why. Justin Hayward, the band’s guitarist who also wrote this song, seeks the edgy feeling backed by the sweltering piano in the background. The emancipation of this song is truly mesmerizing.
John Lodge wrote this song to commemorate his daughter Emily’s birth by the time of the album’s release. The harmonization and the use of different instruments made this song quite difficult to perform live, but somehow they did it once in 1992.
