All-round music maestro and famous bass guitarist, songwriter, and singer “in a rock ‘n’ roll band…” JOHN LODGE will re-visit the best moments of his long career with MOODY BLUES on a new release: “B Yond – The Very Best Of” expected around 23 Aug 2019 via BMG Records.
During a remarkable career in music, Lodge John has received numerous awards including an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Contribution to Music and an ASCAP (American Society Of Composers & Publishers). He was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
“B Yond” features 3 new recordings, 2 new remixes, and other tracks chosen by John.
For the album, Lodge returned to the studio to entirely renovate “Street Café”, “(Evening) Time to Get Away” and “Legend of a Mind”, with the marvellous musicians of the 10,000 Light Years Band. The tracks were co-produced by John with Alan Hewitt, and feature him on his original Fender Precision Bass — which he used to record all of the classic Moody Blues songs on.
He says, “With this album I want to share with you my ‘deep cuts’ — songs that I’ve wanted to revisit, and songs which have become an important part of my life.”
“It is this which has taken me back into the studio, to share with you my music and record again with my Fender Precision Bass. I hope you too can join me on this journey…”
John Lodge recently returned from The Royal Affair Tour in the U.S. with YES, Asia & Carl Palmer.
