Moody Blues box set coming in June

The Moody Blues will release a career-spanning box set, “Timeless Flight,” on June 4 via Universal Music Enterprises. The 17-disc set will include digitally remastered CDs, DVDs of rare television performances, audio discs, a hard back collector’s book, and more.

Housed in a heavy-duty LP-sized hard-back slipcase, this lavish box set contains 17 discs including:

* 11 remastered CDs featuring key album tracks, previously unreleased mixes, out-takes and complete live concerts
* Three DVDs of rare television performances from around the world, promotional videos and the previously unreleased live concert from Olympia, Paris in 1970
* Three DVD audio discs containing the long-deleted 5:1 surround sound mixes of Days Of Future Passed, On The Threshold Of A Dream, To Our Children's Children's Children, A Question Of Balance, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour and Seventh Sojourn
* 120-page hard-back book including a new essay by Moody Blues researcher Mark Powell plus rare and previously unseen photos on heavy weight paper

* Replica full color tour poster and discography
* Replica “Threshold” press pack containing photos and memorabilia
* Exclusive “Timeless Flight” fabric patch

There will also be available a limited edition version of “Timeless Flight” available exclusively from Universal Music’s Box Sets store.

The Moody Blues, still with original members Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge, have released 24 albums in a career spanning nearly five decades. They have sold more than 70 million albums, earning them 18 platinum discs and all manner of awards including Playboy “Group of the Year”, the “Golden Ticket” award for selling the most tickets at Madison Square Garden and an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Contribution to British Music; the band has even appeared in an episode of “The Simpsons”

“I suppose that it is our songs, and the way we interpret them that has seen us travel so far,” says Justin Hayward. “It means so much to us that some of our recordings have really meant something to people.”
