The Moody Blues had a bit of a revival in the 80’s with the Tony Visconti produced album ,”The Other Side Of Life” from 1986. This 12″ contains the first two tracks. Although the LP didn’t set the world alight it still proved they still had it. The line-up was; Justin Hayward – acoustic guitar, guitar synthesiser, vocals, John Lodge – bass guitar, Patrick Moraz – keyboards and Graeme Edge – drums, percussion
Plenty of synth on this as well as Hayward’s distinct voice. A sad song with a happy arrangement. It was a top-10 hit in the United States, peaking at #9, which had not happened to a Moody Blues song since “Nights in White Satin” in 1972.
Sounding very E.L.O on the flipside, “Talkin’ Talkin;” has synth bass and some samplers and the harmonies
