Moody Blues - Every Good Boy Deserves Favour

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: moodyevery_mfsl_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another MoFi LP debunked.

Pure Anadisc mud, like all the Moody Blues records MoFi remastered and ruined. Completely worthless to those of us who play records and want to hear them sound good but, unsurprisingly, they're still worth money to those who collect this sort of audiophile trash. Folks, seriously, you really have to work at it to find pressings of the Moody Blues albums that sound worse than the ones MoFi did in the '90s.

Moody Blues - Every Good Boy Deserves Favour

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: moodyevery_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

It's been ages since we listed a Hot Stamper copy of this album, which should show you how tough it is to find a good one. Side one here earned an A++ to A+++ grade with excellent energy, amazing transparency and loads of tubey magic. Most importantly, it's not nearly as murky or muddy as most copies we've heard. Side two shocked us by delivering EVEN BETTER SOUND -- it earned our top grade of A+++ and did everything we could ask of it!

The Moody Blues - A Question of Balance

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: moodyquest_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This British Threshhold pressing is one of the best copies of this album we've heard. Both sides have tons of tubey magic (natch), BIG BASS, and better transparency than the copies we played it against. Most Moody Blues records are too murky to make much sense of, but this Hot Stamper copy breaks through that mud and gives fans of this band the sound they've been wishing for and likely never found.

The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: moodydayso_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

WOW -- two stunning Triple Plus sides and quiet vinyl throughout for what is probably the definitive Moody Blues album! It's the first album to showcase their signature mixture of classical music and psychedelic rock. It is TOUGH to find copies of this album that sound correct and play quietly, but both sides here really get it right.

The orchestral passages for the first time actually sound CORRECT, with the kind of textured strings, airy woodwinds and three-dimensional soundstaging you would hear on a real classical recording from the era, can you believe it? Playing this copy you can!

The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: moodydayso_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: C

The MoFi pressing has a boosted top end, making everything sparkle and causing the string tone for the orchestral parts to become exceedingly hi-fi-ish. In our Hot Stamper commentary we noted:

The sound is fundamental to the experience. The strings of the orchestra sound as sweet as any Decca, the soundstage wide and deep as any symphonic recording. For those of you who still think Mobile Fidelity is the king on this one, here’s a record that demonstrates what truly natural highs really are. The Moodies used Decca’s classical engineers, not their pop ones, and those guys know what orchestral instruments actually sound like.

The Moody Blues - In Search Of The Lost Chord

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: moodyinsea_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Minty early Deram British Import LP has SOME OF BEST SOUND I HAVE EVER HEARD for this album. It has higher resolution, is more dynamic, sweeter and clearer than most copies, WITHOUT SACRIFICING the tubey-magical richness, warmth and lushness for which the Moody Blues recordings are justifiably famous. I’ll tell you this -- this pressing is correct from top to bottom, so present and alive, while still retaining all the richness and sweetness we expect from British Moody Blues records, that I find it hard to believe you can do any better, in this life anyway.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: moodyinsea_listen) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album.

Achieving just the right balance of Tubey Magical, rich but not too rich "Moody Blues Sound" and transparency is no mean feat. You had better be using the real master tape for starters. Then you need a pressing with actual extension at the top, a quality rarely found on most imports. Finally, good bass definition is essential; it keeps the bottom end from blurring the midrange.

The Moody Blues - On The Threshold Of A Dream

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: moodyonthe_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

ONE OF THE BEST SIDE ONES WE’VE EVER HEARD! A pressing like this brings all the psychedelic Moody Blues magic to life in your living room. The richness, sweetness, and warmth on this one give you exactly the sound you want for this wild music.

You get LOVELY TUBEY MAGIC and SUPERB CLARITY on this Deram British Import LP! The sound is cleaner, clearer, richer, sweeter, and more present that you could have imagined in your wildest dreams!

The Moody Blues - On The Threshold Of A Dream

Nautilus Reviewed

  (Item #: moodyonthe_5821) 



Sonic Grade: C

Another Half Speed debunked.

The Nautilus half-speed is actually very good but it sure doesn't sound like a good British pressing. Their mastering robs the music of some essential energy, ambience, and warmth. Those of you with budget front-ends will find the Nautilus to be very enjoyable, but if you've put a lot of time, energy, and money into your system then there is no substitute for The Real Thing.

The Moody Blues - Seventh Sojourn

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: moodyseven_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Super Hot Stamper side two was among THE BEST sounding side twos we've played. We did not find any copy with better sound on side two, and because no side of any copy really blew our minds, we did not award our Triple Plus grade to either side of any of them.

We had a bunch of British and Dutch imports to play, and we did hear some good sound, just not the kind of good sound we’ve heard on earlier albums. If you like this album we’re pretty sure you will have a hard time finding a copy that sounds even remotely this good. Most of them are much much worse. Dreadful in fact.

The Moody Blues - To Our Children's Children's Children

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: moodytoour_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Decca original British pressing has TWO STUNNING SIDES! The sound is incredibly lively and dynamic with the kind of top end extension that's missing from most copies (of any Moody Blues album). Most aren't nearly this airy, open or spacious. The bottom end is strong with nice weight and great bass definition. The vocals are big and solid.

You get amazing richness, fullness and warmth on these sides, which is exactly what you want for the Moodies' music. Nothing else in our shootout came close to this side two, which of course is why it won the shootout.

Listening In Depth

  (Item #: moodytoour_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your Moody Blues records.

Moody Blues albums tend to be murky, congested and dull. Listening to the typical pressing you'd be forgiven for blaming the band or the engineers for the problem, but our best copies suggest otherwise. No, these albums are never going to have the kind of clear, clean, super high-rez sound most audiophiles prize, but that's clearly not what the Moody Blues were aiming for.

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: moodytoour_mfsl_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another MoFi LP debunked.

The muddiest, tubbiest, most worthless records in the world.

Well...

Worthless to those of us who play records and want to hear them sound good. But, worth money to those who collect that sort of audiophile trash. Folks, seriously, you really would have to work at it to find worse sounding pressings of the Moody Blues albums than the ones MoFi did in the '90s.
