The Moody Blues’ fifth album, “To Our Children’s Children’s Children”, will be reissued as a 4CD+blu-ray deluxe edition with new spatial audio and stereo mixes, in addition to rarities and live performances.

Issued in November 1969, the album was the first on the band’s on own label, Threshold Records and had a space exploration theme (inspired by the July 1969 moon landing). The one and only single ‘Watching and Waiting’ wasn’t a hit but the album performed well on both sides of the Atlantic, peaking at No. 2 in the UK.

The box set features a remaster of the original stereo mix of “To Our Children’s Children’s Children” along with new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes by Stephen W. Tayler, who has also created new stereo and 5.1 mixes of the band’s December 1969 Royal Albert Hall show (stereo mix is on CD 4 while the 5.1 mix is on the blu-ray). CD 2 in this package features B-sides and rarities, including a BBC Radio One Sunday Concert.

The Royal Albert Hall Concert December 1969, featuring live performances of such favorites as “Peak Hour,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Nights in White Satin” from 1967’s “Days of Future Passed”. The box set features the album’s remastered original stereo mix, along with new stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes.

Originally released in November 1969, “To Our Children’s Children’s Children” was the first that The Moody Blues released on their own Threshold Records. The title covered conceptual themes such as space exploration (as the sessions took place as the Apollo 11 moon landing occurred). 

The Moody Blues’ “classic seven” albums spanned 1967’s Days of Future Passed, 1968’s In Search of the Lost Chord, 1969’s On the Threshold of a Dream and To Our Children’s Children’s Children, 1970’s A Question of Balance, 1971’s Every Good Boy Deserves Favour and 1972’s Seventh Sojourn.
