I first started listening to the Moodies with "Go Now" some 40 years ago. I was floored with "Future" and the earlier classic albums. I sort of lost touch after Mike Pinder left; I love his baritone voice and frankly have found some of the later Haywood-Lodge compilations a bit boring after a few listens. Not bad, mind you, they simply sounded too much the same. I watched the concert at Red Rocks last year and was impressed with it. Today I finally sat down with the Albert Hall concert, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There seems to be such a kinship between the band members, a real affection and also a confidence in their own places within the band, ie, no oneupmanship. The music was well played and it was a nice selection of new (their latest releases as of 2000) to very old. Of course they included their classic Nights in White Satin. They seemed to really enjoy themselves and definitely got into their music, especially "Singer in a Rock and Roll Band."
I rate this a 9/10. I would have liked to hear Ray sing more and wish Graham had recited one of his poems like he did on the Red Rocks disk.
