There are no special features on Disc One. Disc Two includes ten interviews, six full-length Moody Blues music promos, and five photo galleries. Also included in the box set is a 20-page booklet and a bonus CD.
With over 60 million records sold and half-a-million still selling every year, The Moody Blues is one of the most successful and longest-running bands in history. Told through interviews, rare and unseen photos, and archived footage, this is the story of a Birmingham R&B group that first began in the early 1960s. (Tricia Spears)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is typical of documentaries, with various levels of picture quality depending on the camera used. This documentary, however, has an even greater variance between the good and the bad than most, with some images looking fairly well resolved with accurate colors, while some look like they were taken with a cell phone. Archive footage is cleaned of dirt and other source artifacts, but the colors are obviously dated. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #53 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
There was little in the way of reading material to bridge the gap between the broadcast-level technical and the common consumer. Most of the generic publications were too simplistic with not enough meat. As the DVDs’ popularity developed beyond everyone’s wildest dreams, it became painfully obvious that there was a serious lack of credible printed matter to support the medium. And with HDTV in the wings, even less to draw from. Or so I thought, until I came upon Widescreen Review at a newsstand while on one of those proverbial business trips. I couldn't believe my eyes! Here's the kind of magazine I was looking for. But then, thinking that this was just a one-off issue, which just happened to contain an abundance of knowledge in an occasional issue, I decided to temper my enthusiasm and become a newsstand reader to see if the articles and features held up consistently. Well, that was all many issues ago and I'm now a dyed-in-the-wool reader of Widescreen Review. To their credit, the magazine has and continues to improve upon their expertise in the field. It's truly a one-stop resource when it comes to the latest in the ever-evolving world of audio/video integration for the consumer. Pixel on!
