The Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin - Live 1970




In 1970 the Moody Blues were art their creative and commercial peak. After reinventing themselves from their R & B roots to a much more sophisticated sound, between 1967 and 1970 they released five albums, four of which hits top 5 in the UK, with two of them going #1. They enjoyed similar success in the US where four of their albums hit the top 20 and the other was just outside.


At the end of August 1970, shortly after their release of their album 'A Question of Balance', The Moody Blues took to the stage of the Isle Of Wight Festival in front of an audience estimated at over 1/2 million.







Lyrics

Nights in white satin Never reaching the end Letters I've written Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed With these eyes before Just what the truth is I can't say any more

'Cause I love you Yes I love you Oh how I love you

Gazing at people, some hand in hand Just what I'm going through they can't understand Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend Just what you want to be, you will be in the end

And I love you Yes I love you Oh how I love you Oh how I love you

Nights in white satin Never reaching the end Letters I've written Never meaning to send

Beauty I've always missed With these eyes before Just what the truth is I can't say any more

'Cause I love you Yes I love you Oh how I love you Oh how I love you 'Cause I love you Yes I love you Oh how I love you Oh how I love you
