The Moody Blues are an English rock band. Among their innovations was a fusion with classical music, as heard in their 1967 album Days of Future Passed. The Moody Blues have sold more than 55 million albums worldwide and have been awarded 18 platinum and gold discs.

Their famous song "Nights in White Satin" was released in 1967. It was written by Justin Hayward and first featured on the album Days of Future Passed. There are two single versions of the song, both stripped of the orchestral and "Late Lament" poetry sections of the LP version. Although it only had limited commercial success on its first release, the song has since garnered much critical acclaim.

When first released in 1967, the song reached #19 on the UK Singles Chart it was the first significant chart entry by the band since "Go Now". It is an edited version of the album track that also has the orchesta removed. The song was re-released in 1972 once the band had some major album and single successes. It charted at #2 in November on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Cash Box in the United States, earning a Gold certification for sales of a million copies. It also reached #1 in Canada. It was also released in Spanish as "Noches de Seda" at the same time. In the wake of its US success, the song re-charted in the UK in late 1972 and climbed to #9. The song was re-released yet again in 1979, and charted for a third time in the UK at #14.

Band member Justin Hayward wrote the song at age 19 in Swindon, and titled the song after a girlfriend gave him a gift of satin bedsheets. The song itself was a tale of a yearning love from afar, which leads many aficionados to term it as a tale of unrequited love endured by Hayward. The London Festival Orchestra provided the orchestral accompaniment for the introduction, the final rendition of the chorus, and the "final lament" section, all of this in the original album version. The "orchestral" sounds in the main body of the song were actually produced by Mike Pinder's Mellotron keyboard device, which would come to define the "Moody Blues sound".

This was a strange one to fix. It had some really terrible fizz noise that hid a lot of fine fragile detail underneath. It was a delicate process to scrub this old video clean of a lot of this horrible noise without damaging the fragile detail. It took me a few attempts to work out how to do it. I've very pleased with the final results. The video was also very dark and dull to look at. Major lighting corrections have been used throughout. It now looks great compared to the original vob source file. I've decided to leave the old black film scratches intact as it gives a kind o...
