SPRING SESSION 2016

BLOGPOST #1,954 AT THE AICP-END


We will continue with the Moody Blues today since today is still a ‘holiday’ to many
Shafter, CA, 03-28-2016 Monday: Amigos, welcome, how is everyone today.  I am back for the first time in nearly a year (give or take a couple of months) and am chomping at the bit to dive headlong into politics. 
However, Mo let me know that today was going to be a light day since yesterday was Easter Sunday and that is entirely fine with me.  We work like dogs on Sunday holidays as everyone takes their parents and/or their kids out to dinner or to breakfast at fine places and once the doors open, the flow of people lasts as long as the doors remain open; therefore, I am glad to share another batch of albums by the Moody Blues. 
This is something we will do throughout the spring and summer whenever we need a day or two or even more off the grid.  I hope this finds you well but the numbers are down because once again people question our authenticity and to that we all say, “Who cares?  We do this mostly for one another and for the few diehard fans that we accumulate along the way. 
Here we go:  

“Sur la Mer” by the Moody Blues
The Moody Blues released their final album of the 1980’s, 1988’sSur La Mer,” an album critics hail as a return to form and away from the over-polished “The Other Side of Life.” 
As we have mentioned, for bands from the 1960’s, the 1980’s were a difficult time as punk, techno-pop, and all sorts of other forms of pop music pushed venerable acts to the edge of extinction—even groups such as the Rolling Stones, Who, and the Kinks, for God’s Sake.  The Moody Blues rebounded and delivered a hot album with this one and it did very well in the charts and kept them on the road doing performances around the world.  We love this CD, as will you.
“Classic Blue with Mike Batt” by Justin Hayward
The next CD by guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues—“Classic Blue with Mike Batt”—came out in 1988.  This CD to some fans is a bit unthinkable in that the singer-songwriter-guitarist with the help of producer Mike Batt and a full orchestra record songs of other artists as well as a few of his own. 
What’s more, he goes from “Tracks of my Tears” to “Stairway to Heaven,” and while it shocks us to say this, he does one hell of a job! 
Please, use the convenient links we provide you here so you can grab them and go directly to Amazon.com where you can snap this CD up in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for you as well as the previous one—you will thank us for turning you on to two amazing musical recordings—thank you!
“The Story of the Moody Blues—Legend of a Band” and “Keys to the Kingdom” both by the Moody Blues
The album for today is the first one of the 1990s for the Moody Blues is the compilation CD, “The Story of the Moody Blues—Legend of a Band” (1990). 
As compilation CDs go, this is one many fans proclaim to be a great CD because it has the crème de la crème of the band up to the late 1980’s.  If you want to get in on the ground floor of any band—especially this band with a long period of activity that continues to today—this is the best way to do it. 
Please, use our link so you can redirect your browser to the world’s greatest online marketplace, Amazon.com.  In fact, while you are at it, why not get the first studio CD of the 1990s by the band, “Keys to the Kingdom,” (1991), a great album much beloved by the fans.  Use the handy links posted here so you can go to Amazon.com and pick both of them up at the price, the format, and the condition that is right for YOU.
“A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra” and “Time Traveler” by the Moody Blues

The first album for today is a great live CD for you today by the great English band, the Moody Blues: “A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra” (1993). 
There is an amazing film of this show that we first saw on PBS more than a decade ago, the band doing what it does best and that is belting out the hits in front of an appreciative audience.  If you want to hear the band at its best with four of the original members—Justin Hayward, John Lodge, Ray Thomas, and Graeme Edge—then this is the CD you need to own. 
We have another one for you, too, a box set—45 CDs and a very informative book, no less—“Time Traveler” (1994) that takes you from the band’s beginning to the present. 
As we said with the offering we previously shared with you that if you want to get in the ground floor of a band—especially this band—then this is how YOU do it.  Please, buy BOTH of these CDs by visiting Amazon.com via using our links—this gives you great music at a phenomenal price, which also gives us the financial credits, the thing we need to keep us alive.  Thank you for your patronage, we could not do it without you!
“People with One Heart” and “Among the Stars” by Mike Pinder

The next two albums by a member of the Moody Blues to come out were by the band’s original but former keyboardist, Mike Pinder.  The first CD, “People with One Heart” (1995) features excellent music interwoven with children’s stories while the second—also from 1995, “Among the Stars”—is a solo album along the lines of his first one, “The Promise” (please see the post of June 03, 2015). 
Pinder is a master of the mellotron as well as many other instruments and on both of these CD’s; you have an amazing opportunity to hear his musical abilities.  Please, seek out both of these CDs by visiting Amazon.com by using our links; there, you can select them in the format, the condition, and the price that rocks your socks and ours, as well.  Trust us—we promote NOTHING but the best when it comes to music, books, you name it, we promote it, it is what keeps us going!
“The Very Best of the Moody Blues” by the Moody Blues
The first album for today is the next one by the Moody Blues and the second one is the next one by former Moody keyboardist, Mike PinderThe album by the Moody Blues is “The Very Best of the Moody Blues” (1995), which contains 31 of the band’s best tunes from start to finish. 
If you want a good introduction, this is the place to do it and that is WHY we find ourselves promoting the CD to the readership this week.
“Planet with One Mind” by Mike Pinder
The CD by keyboardist, Mike Pinder is one for the kids, children’s stories, and pleasant fables interlaced with the man’s majestic music.  “Planet with one Mind” (1995) is an excellent choice; it is a pleasure to hear as well as a joy to share.  Please, visit Amazon.com where you find both of these CDs in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for YOU—you will not be disappointed.       
“The Best of the Moody Blues” by the Moody Blues
The CD for today by the Moody Blues is yet another ‘best of’ package, one that is the scaled-down version of the previous offering.  Entitled, “The Best of the Moody Blues,” (1997), it contains 17 of the band’s best tracks, right from the very first album “The Moody Blues #1” to “I know you’re out there somewhere” from “Sur La Mer.” 
If you want to save a few bucks, this is a great package with nothing but most of the top hits so why not use our link to redirect your browser to Amazon.com so you can snatch it up in the format, the condition, and the price that is RIGHT for you, your pocketbook, and your ears.  You will thank us for sending you there!
“The Moody Blues Anthology” by the Moody Blues
The Moody Blues released yet another ‘best of’ compilation CD in 1998, this one being “The Moody Blues Anthology,” which has 33 cuts on it that are the best of the band’s massive body of work. 
You can pick it up in CD form for under $27-28, which is a boon currently of ever-increasing prices, higher taxes, and a declining number of jobs.  We hope you will put together the remainder of your entertainment money and using our link to go to Amazon.com and grab this two-CD set in whatever format, the condition, and the price that works for you—you will be glad you did because it is worthy of YOUR ownership.  Thank you for your patronage, we appreciate it.
“Strange Times” by the Moody Blues
The Moody Blues returned to rock-and-roll prominence with the release of “Strange Times” in 1999.  There are 14 top quality cuts on this album, which the band’s fans agree is among their best work in more than six years. 
Many of the bands that came out of the 1960s, especially out of England, all went through a period of being adrift.  The Rolling Stones released scattered works, as did the Kinks until they imploded in 1994.  The Who was not always a functioning musical unit but did come out here and there with some spotty recordings. 
As for the Moodies, however, this album is a fine one, one we wholeheartedly promote and urge you to own.  Please use the link we provide you here so you can redirect your browser to Amazon.com where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for YOU!
“Classic Moody Blues—the Universal Masters Collection”
The Moody Blues released yet another ‘best of’ compilation CD in 1998, this one being “Classic Moody Blues—the Universal Masters Collection,” is a great collection of this band’s best works.  As usual, we recommend you seek it out by using the link we provide you here so you can pick it up when you pick up the accompanying album we have for you next: “The Best of the Moody Blues—20th Century Masters—the Millennium Collection” (2000). 
This album is another collection of the band’s best works, albeit an abbreviated one with 11 cuts but for $6.00!  If you have not yet introduced the music of this band to your ears, then you need to do so now by using our link to redirect your browser so you can pick it up along with the preceding album, too, by going to the world’s greatest online emporium, Amazon.com
We urge you to check both of the CDs out as once you do, you could very well become a lifelong fan!  The bloggers and staff here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day thank you for your patronage of our promoted products—thank you!
I still believe Hillary Clinton is not going to win the nomination
That will do it for today.  Folks, when I began commenting on the election matchups of last year, I mentioned I thought that Donald Trump might do what he says about closing the border, something we definitely need to consider. 
Then, I began to see him as a loose cannon, as a nut, someone I am not sure whether we can trust or throw under the bus.  I still believe Hillary Clinton is a crook that I do not believe she would make a good president while I like Bernie and am glad to see that he won the last three contests of the election cycle. 
The man won Alaska, he won Hawaii, and he won Washington state that is truly amazing when it appeared that Hillary was going to sweep all the way to the nomination after the previous round of electoral contests.  Amigos, things are beginning to get interesting and while the GOP continues devouring itself alive, the Democrats remain competitive and I hope Senator Sanders can continue the fight. 
I know I sent the man $35 the other day and will continue doing it as long as he remains competitive.  I will see you all tomorrow, adios amigos, nos vemos.
Muchas gracias, buen amigos!

MONDAY, MARCH 28, 2016
Unlike the Beatles, the Rolling Stones put out a live album early in their career, the whacked out “Got Live if You Want It!”  (1966). This album depicted the way it was back in the early-to-mid 1960s, fans screaming from start-to-finish, even thru the slow tunes, the crowd keeps screaming all the time.  The album moves along at breakneck pace as the band cranks out all of their hits in an orgasmic style that only the Stones could muster night-after-night.  Please, take our link to go to Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format that pleases your ears, your pocketbook, and your desires.  You will love this album!
