    Moody Blues- Blue Jays

    This album (now CD) was made in 1975 with Justin Hayward and John Lodge after the first break-up of the Moody Blues. That said, much of the album sounds as good as any other album they have done. The rich sound and quality lyrics are still there. If you enjoy the Moody Blues, this little known CD is worth the purchase.

    The Ultimate Moodies Album!!!

    This album from Justin & John, released during the Moodies temporary break-up from 1974 to 1977 has been my all-time favorite Moodies album. Since it came out in 1975, I have not been able to put it down. The opening track ''This Morning'' immediately grabs the listener from the start into a beautiful journey thru tight luscious harmonies, emotionally riveting string arrangements, well-crafted lyrics, and of course, Justin and John's recognizable guitar work. The minor hit single '' I Dreamed Last Night'' reunites Justin & John with Peter Knight and his orchestra, bringing back wonderful memories of listening to ''Days of Future Passed'', and the song soars with brilliance and beauty. I have been a solid Moodies fan since ''Tuesday Afternoon'' was a hit single in 1968, but if I were to be stranded on a deserted island, and only had one album to choose for my CD player, Justin and John's ''Blue Jays'' would have to be my pick....hands down. It's a definite ''must have'' for any devoted Moody Blues fan!

    The best Non Moody Blues effort by Justin Hayward. If you loved Days of Future Past and the blending of an orchestra, this is a must have.

    The Moody Blues were one of the great influences of my life in the early 70's. From Days of Future Past, to our Children's Children, Question of Balance, and concluding with Seventh Soujorn, the last of first 7 albums produce when Justin joined the band, the Moody's rich use of instrumentation set them aside from all their contemporaries. Hours and hours were spent listening to the rich intricacies of sound and the weaving of mystical lyrics. Mike Pinder's influence on the mystic side of their music resonated deep within each track whether or not Mike contributed. When the band broke up, John Lodge and Justin Hayward cut this fine album. Although Mike Pinder did not contribute, his influences in prior works must still have been fresh in the psyche of John and Justin. For nothing this rich has been produced by either or the Moody's since. Yes, they have from time to time cut a single with some depth. But the albums as a whole have been simple, juvenile, and unimaginative. I agreed with Patrick Moran who took Mike Pinder's place when he said that the ''band ceased to take any risks'' upon his departure. That some of the cuts from this album are included in the Time Traveler compilation is a testiment to the richness of these tracks while illustrating the dearth of worthy songs on subsequent titles.
