    At Least the Audience is "Live"

    I won't denegrate those who would value this DVD for its glimpses of 60s/70s hairstyles and clothes, or who would so revere the Moodys as to want to see them in younger and thinner days, but serious musicians and "truth in advertising" sticklers would be hard-pressed to consider this DVD anything but a blatant misrepresentation. "Live" it's not, unless someone can demonstrate how to coax Mellotron and piano sounds from a Hammond C-3 with the power switches off. Compared to "The Doors Live in Europe 1968", or "Deep Purple in Concert 1972/73", or dozens of other discs from the period which feature bona fide complete musical performances, this DVD fails to meet even the most basic standards for a "live" concert. In the liner notes, Mike Pinder describes the "Live in Paris '70" venue as "more like a theater than a club, almost Vaudeville." That seems especially apt when considering this performance--it's almost Pantomine. So buy it for what you will, just don't buy it for the way it's advertised.

    Even the Moody Blues were laughing at this!

    Being a long-time Moody Blues fanatic, I was greatly looking forward to bringing this home, but now I greatly wish I could get my money back! The video portion of this unauthorized DVD is fine. It's interesting enough to see their psychedelic clothing and hair styles of the time. But don't buy this expecting anything close to a live performance, or even a sincere attempt by the band at pulling it off as live. The only vocals that are not mimed are some by Justin, in which case his live mic merely complimented the pre-recorded instruments. The harmonica in 'Never Comes the Day' is also live, and also dubbed over the studio recording of the drums, bass and keyboards. Graham and John spent most of the 'performance' laughing on stage while the music was piped over them. They even have the audacity to put a camera behind the drum kit to see how often Graham never even bothers to use the kick pedal on his bass drum. To call it lip synching is being too kind. It's a joke that they bothered an attempt at Dolby 5.1 surround when the music is all canned. This is without a doubt the worst and most disappointing music DVD I have ever come across.

    Moody Blues: The Lost Performance - Live in Paris '70

    The only available DVD featuring the Moody Blues in what can fairly be called their prime. Although much of the video is lip-synched - the rule rather than the exception for 1970 - Mike Pinder of the Moodies tells us the vocals are all live. It's great to see the Moodies young, thin and energetic in those psychedelic days; and these ARE their best songs. Not sure where the previous reviewer is coming from; the disc is a deal.

    Moody Blues: The Lost Performance - Live in Paris '70

    A rare and (to me) delightfully nostalgic look at the Moodies in their prime: 1970. Sure, a lot of it is lip-synched: as was almost everything 34 years ago. Nevertheless, there's some great live material and I really enjoy seeing the band looking young and thin. All their best songs are on this. There's no other Moodies DVD earlier than the mid 80s, so at the price this is definitely recommended.

    Rip Off

    Stay away, it's all lip-synching! The 'other' bookstore website doesn't even offer it anymore. Pretty sure that the Moodies never authorized it....not on any of their websites except for ex-Moody Blue Mike Pinder. I smell a get-rich scam on his part. Waste of money, unless you're a fan that just wants to see them back in 1970 and doesn't care it's not a genuine live performance. Do get Justin's live dvd...available on his website
