    I just finished listening to all of the Moody Blues songs that Ray Thomas wrote. Since I don't have all of the Moody Blues albums, I heard some of them on YouTube. Then I ordered one of his solo albums. I think that after the first few albums, his voice matured to where it was the best one in the band.

    The Veteran Cosmic Rocker is Traveling Eternity Road.

    RIP

    I was fortunate to attend a Moody Blues show that included an orchestra, back before members started leaving to "travel eternity road". One of my favorite concerts. Who knew rock n roll could include not only a flute but poetry?

    Things have taken an interesting turn. I did not have either of RT's solo albums. I found a new CD of Hopes, Wishes and Dreams. I knew that I wouldn't find an affordable copy of From Mighty Oaks. I was wrong. I found it on a wide disc at a local record store. I think I'm in for some good listening.
