Every Good Boy Deserves Favour is the best realized of the Moody Blues' classic albums. The lush melodies and the sound of Michael Pinder's Mellotron were never richer, and the guitar pyrotechnics on pieces like "The Story in Your Eyes" were never more vivid. "Emily's Song," "Nice to Be Here" and "My Song" are among the best work the group ever did, and "The Story in Your Eyes" is the best rock number they ever cut, with a bracing beat and the kind of lyrical complexity one more expected out of George Harrison at the time.

Let me start by saying that I am an audio engineer and have been for the past twenty-five years. I'm a big Moody Blues fan, and was disappointed with this purchase. It would be nice if ALL artists would be more specific about a 5.1 release. I thought that this was a surround remix from the original multitrack masters. NOT THE CASE! This is just a re-release of the old quad tapes from the mid 70s with no use of the center channel and a rather compromised bass channel. The mix on the quad tapes is odd to begin with. Sometimes the backround vocals and keyboard parts are barely audible. Other subtle parts are too loud. There are times when the harmony vocal is mixed louder than the melody. It's fun if you wish to hear some of the subtle orchestration. This is not a slam against Acoustic Sounds. Shame on the Moody Blues for not being more specific about this product, especially since it is selling at a premium price. This also applies for the "Seventh Sojourn" release.
