In Search Of The Lost Chord was on of those essential albums in my life, an album I played time and time again, it marked my passing through the door of adulthood, with the title [for me] forever referring to the cutting of the umbilical “chord,” and the search for a reconnection to lost youth and all things innocent.

This was probably one of the most beautiful, successful psychedelic albums of all time, and like their counter parts The Beatles, The Moody Blues were pushing the envelope, experimenting, and learning on the fly how the studio worked, sounds they could create, and above all they seemed to be one of the first bands to recognize and embrace the concept of private music listening. The Lost Chord was a very heady album in all aspects ... from it’s introspective cover, full of hidden meanings, and drug induced visions, to the heavily layered music, music that swirled around and within the listener. The Moody Blues had the ability to let the listener travel, almost lost in the ether, yet so tentatively holding their attention that it was all but impossible not to return to their music again and again to discover new passages, new phrasings, and hidden messages.

The music was bright and rich, with an airy quality to the sound, though there were few spaces to breath ... this due primarily to the use of the Mellotron, and it’s juxtaposition to the flutes, cellos, guitars, and sitar. I wish that I could call this album timeless, because it really is a most wonderful experience, but the spoken words, and recited poetry tend to lock Lost Chord into an unescapable time frame. I usually try to reframe from this statement, but this is one of those albums for which you had to be there when it was released to fully grasp the ground it was braking, and the impact it had on those of us lucky enough to have discovered it. Regardless, In Search Of The Lost Chord is nearly an essential album on all levels, an inspiration point to which countless bands can trace their genesis ... and though I don’t listen often, when I do, it’s a very satisfying experience.

*** The Fun Facts: In Search of the Lost Chord delivered magnificently on the musical end of things and the cover does so as well on the visual side. Artist Phil Travers had done some work for their label and the band commissioned him to design the cover for this project. He was invited to listen to the album at the band’s recording studio. Travers says the idea for the cover actually came to him while he was listening to the music in the studio, though he didn’t know it at the time, “The recording and mixing area of the studio where I was sitting was separated from the area where the band would play by a large glass window and in this glass I could see several images of myself, with one above the other, almost as if I was ascending up into space.” It all symbolizes life, death, and ascension of the mind.

Great album. Listen to it as a concept album.The songs are about searching for a higher plane of existence. Ride my see saw is about regret that he didnt search,and the rest of the album is about the search.

I have some strange edition of this. The label is exactly as the first UK pressing with the (ZAL8270) upside down and the J/T above. It has the matrix on (side 1.) ZAL-8270-2W JT and (side 2.) ZAL-8271-1W JT but the laminated cover is as the German release. So, what release is this? It's not listed here. If anyone can help me, please do that! Cheers! Lost_Johnny

Picked up at my local record store a few days ago. As people say, extremely underrated. Great LP. Reminiscent of a more psychedelic experimental version of the stereotypical Big British Band of the 1970s.

I highly recommend this album!

This original german issue exists with both 'laminated' sleeve and 'matt' sleeve.

Both versions look absolutely identical, 100% the same typo, identical matrix numbers, identical label design... but one with matt finish & one with laminated cover.

Maybe the german arm of Deram (Decca) used two different printer companies!?

a criminally under-rated lp imho, if this had been made by virtually anyone apart from the Moody Blues it would be much more highly rated. Best appreciated loud on headphones, preferably under the influence of something illegal
