Long Distance Voyager, the 10th album by The Moody Blues, was their first to
feature keyboardist Patrick Moraz (from Refugee and Yes). Moraz replaced
co-founder Mike Pinder who had left the group in 1978 after Octave. Upon its
release in 1981, Long Distance Voyager became the group's second #1 album in the
The songs on Long Distance Voyager were recorded at the band's own Threshold
Studios. The songs were recorded and mixed by Greg Jackman, while Pip Williams
was the album's producer. Supplementing the Moody Blues—Justin Hayward, John
Lodge, Ray Thomas, Graeme Edge, and Patrick Moraz—was a string section performed
by the New World Philharmonic, which Pip Williams arranged.
Long Distance Voyager is only partially a concept album, as only half of the
songs relate to the "voyager" referred to in the album's title. The final three
tracks comprise a mini-suite that combines themes of carnival jesters and the
chaos experienced backstage at a rock show.
"Many of these songs rank with the band's best...This album should make
anybody's short list of Moodies goodies." -Dave Connolly, allmusic.com
