Notes

There are apparently 2 releases of this, one comes in a Double-digipak, housed in a clear plastic slipcase, the other comes in a Double-digipak also but without the clear plastic slipcase.

There is also some copies where the black sticker on the front says "The Moody Blues - A Question Of Balance" instead of the correct sticker "To Our Childrens Childrens Children".

Disc Two (CD):
Tracks 1-1 to 1-3: recorded at Decca Studio One, West Hampstead in July 1969.
This trio of out-takes from the "To Our Children's Children's Children" sessions are fascinating versions of these songs prior to being compiled and cross-faded as part of the final album master. All three tracks features extended play outs that were later faded on the final album master.

Tracks 2-4 to 2-11: BBC Radio One "David Symonds concert" - Recorded at the BBC Paris Theatre on December 17th 1969.
Of all the material held in the BBC sound archives by The Moody Blues, this radio concert, recorded in front of an invited audience at the BBC's Paris theatre studio in December 1969 is perhaps the most remarkable. The songs performed that day comprised a shortened version of the set audiences had witnessed on the band's series of live dates that month. Hosted by Radio One DJ David Symonds, a long time champion of the band, this previously unreleased concert recording fully captures the Moody Blues' powerful live act of 1969.

    The sound isn't the best on this either but it's better than the horrific UK original. I guess the master isn't good

      One of my top 10 favorite albums of all time. Pure musical bliss.
