The Moody Blues - Seventh Sojourn (1972) (Vinyl)

Year: 1972 (LP 1972)
Label: Threshold Records (UK), THS 7
Style: Symphonic Rock
Country: Birmingham, England
Time: 39:07
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 254 Mb

The opening track, Mike Pinder's "Lost in a Lost World" laments the brutality of revolution and references racial tension. Several songs contain overt political references. "You and Me," like "Question" from two years earlier, alludes to ongoing wars and conflicts, including Vietnam. However, although the album showcases political concerns, in the 1990 documentary The Moody Blues: Legend of a Band, bassist John Lodge described "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)" as a response to fans who mistakenly read guru-like wisdom into the Moodies' lyrics. Instrumentally, singer/keyboardist Mike Pinder, in addition to the Mellotron, used a similar keyboard device called the Chamberlin.

John Lodge (born 20 July 1945) - vocals, bass
Ray Thomas (born 29 December 1941) - vocals, flute, tambourine, saxophone
