#AprilSongs #2 - Tuesday Afternoon


This is possibly not good, I'm using a song that should be a last resort on my second post, although it is from a fairly "important" album, "Days of Future Past" by The Moody Blues where they collaborated with Peter Knight with full orchestral backing on their first concept album based on  #ADayInThe Life transitioning from a rhythm and blues group (gotta say that because some people see R'n'B as the bland Rhythm and Beat string of Soul / Dance rather than the rawer rockier Rhythm and Blues of Howlin' Wolf , Muddy Waters , Bo Diddley and the like). I wrote a comparison here.

Actually "Tuesday Afternoon" is a decent record with the mand heavy on the mellotron, though for this album everything get's overshadowed by the classic "Nights In White Satin" (though I'm always tempted to write it as "Knights in White Satin". Parts of the album suffer from some awful sixties pretentious spoken word sequences, and although they carried this into further concept albums they managed to hone it into acceptability.

So on this rainy April Tuesday I will leave you to enjoy The Moody Blues "Tuesday Afternoon"
