  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
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)

DVD Picture:
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)
