    oe: very rare record, the only reason why they are here, sorry for the quality. I believe there was an inexplicable transformation in the work group from 
    the Magnificent Moodies
    to the Days of the Future Passed, and this collection brings some understanding of how everything happened...

    During the late '60s, Decca Records didn't have a lot of rock music that it could exploit -- apart from the Rolling Stones, who were getting itchy to move on from the contract they'd signed in 1963, most of their acts that did chart were one-shot or, at best, two-time hitmakers, who mostly failed to follow up successfully in the album market. And then there were the Moody Blues, who started lofting albums into the U.K. Top Five and the U.S. Top Ten, sometimes even when they didn't have a hit single to go with them. And in one of the few relatively successful vault raids out of this period in the label's history, they assembled On Boulevard de la Madeleine (also issued in some markets as Boulevard de la Madeleine and Fly Me High), comprised of 16 of those songs recorded by the group in its pre-Days of Future Passed/"Nights in White Satin" period. The record was issued in the Netherlands in 1968 and in Belgium a year later, and was primarily intended for the Central European marketplace, though copies did find their way to England and even the United States, courtesy of some highly dedicated collectors and fans. Going all the way back to the group's 1964 R&B-flavored debut single, "Lose Your Money," the first two years of the band's history are represented, which heavily feature original lead guitar/vocalist Denny Laine; in fact, the best cut on the album is also the best track that this version of the band ever recorded, "From the Bottom of My Heart." The group's 1966 lineup, with Justin Hayward and John Lodge as members, also got its share of slots on the album. And whichever lineup was present on a particular song, all of it was worthwhile listening. What's more, Justin Hayward's "Fly Me High" and "Leave This Man Alone," and Mike Pinder's "Love and Beauty," were probably minor revelations to fans who only knew the post-"Nights in White Satin" material. This collection was later supplanted by the double-LP set A Dream, but while it was kicking around, it was a prized possession for fans on both sides of the Atlantic. ~ Bruce Eder
