I'm afraid we don't have our bumper crop of usual 'unreleased songs' to give you this week. The Moody Blues were notoriously guarded over any songs they felt were imperfect and seem to have been wary of handing out in-work acetates, which is a shame because hearing The Moody Blues building up their classic 'original seven' albums piece by piece would surely be a fascinating process. Though the Moody Blues were once a thriving source for bootlegs, most of it tends to be from individual concerts, most of which are now released officially anyway. The 'deluxe' CD re-issues from 2006-2008 rather stole our thunder too, with their occasionally un-glimpsed song or the fractionally longer edits that reveal new beginnings and ends later edited out to make the songs segue that bit more naturally. As a result our list is short and, in a couple of cases, rather desperate. However there is still a good CD's worth of material out there which you might not have heard ('Have You Heard?!') and, anyway, you're probably sick of our longer articles by now!
