This 2017 package features the Original 1967 Stereo Mix’s CD Debut, the 5.1 Surround Mix, many Outtakes and some Video Footage!

Universal Music release a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the MOODY BLUES’ 1967 album: ‘Days Of Future Passed’ - the band’s 2nd LP that was an orchestral rock concept album and featured their famous single: ‘Nights In White Satin’.

Reissued as a Triple Disc Set (2CD’s and a DVD), one of the big selling points is the revision to the VERY ORIGINAL 1967 STEREO MIX of the album! This was superseded in 1972 by a new one due to damage on the original master tape! All CD reissues up until now have used this mix and not the 1967 original!
Apparently, “technology” has now allowed the repair of the audio from the original tapes, and so this Original Stereo Mix gets its first CD release on this Anniversary set.

The 1st CD in the package includes the 1967 Stereo Mix and 9 Bonus Tracks!
The 2nd CD offers Alternate Versions and Outtakes.
In total this package has 33 Audio Tracks, which is seven more than the previous SACD/CD set.

The DVD element includes a 5.1 Surround Sound mix derived from the original 1972 Quad mix. Presumably, this is the same Surround mix that was included on the now out-of-print 2006 SACD edition of this album. The original Quad mix was by Tony Clarke and Justin Hayward, then John Lodge enhanced it for the 5.1 mix. This disc includes a Hi-Res Stereo version of the album and Previously Unreleased Video Footage of the band performing three tracks from the album at MIDEM on the 24th of January 1968, just eight weeks after its release.

You do wonder why they haven’t opted for a Blu-Ray Audio here, to allow for a Lossless 5.1 Surround mix. Likely to be a budget-related issue since DVD’s are cheaper to author and manufacture.
Regardless, it’s certainly much cheaper than tracking down the previous SACD version.

‘Days Of Future Passed’ [2017] is also available as a Limited HQ Vinyl LP – Stock # 2017738

‘Days Of Future Passed’ [2017] is released on 17th November 2017.
