The Moody Blues claimed their first No.1 album 48 years ago

On This Day 10/05/2017

On this day back in 1969, English rock band The Moody Blues claimed their first ever number one album with 'On the Threshold of a Dream.'

The bands fourth studio album spent two weeks atop of the UK album chart and was recieved very well as an album, but unfortunatley most of the singles didn't perform very well on their own.

Written by lead singer Justin Hayward, 'Never Comes the Day' was the only single to crack the top 100 in the US, charting as high as 91 before falling out.

The Moodies frontman is due to play three shows in New Zealand this October, playing in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

If you're a big fan of Hayward, we've got your chance to win an intimate evening to go along to one of his shows.
