Universal Music EnterprisesA new eight-disc box set collecting the recordings The Moody Blues made during their late-1980s and early-’90s tenure with the Polydor label will arrive in stores November 24. The Polydor Years 1986-1992 features six CDs and two DVDs, and includes expanded versions of three of the veteran British band’s studio albums, plus two live albums, a concert film, and a documentary.

The period The Moody Blues were on Polydor saw the band enjoying a resurgence in popularity, 20 years into their career, thanks to such memorable tunes as “Your Wildest Dreams” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere.” The box set features remastered editions of the respective albums that yielded those hits — 1986’s The Other Side of Life and 1988’s Sur la Mer — as well as 1991’s Keys to the Kingdom. Each of these records is augmented with a variety of bonus tracks — including live performances, single edits, remixes, B-sides and alternate versions — most of which have never been released.

The Polydor Years also boasts a previously unreleased Moody Blues album recorded at the Blossom Music Centre in Cleveland in July 1986, as well as the two-CD live set A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which originally was issued in 1993. In addition, the long-out-of-print companion DVD to A Night at Red Rocks is featured in the compilation, as is a documentary about the concert that previously had only been available to Moody Blues fan-club members.

The box set is rounded out by a collectible seven-inch blue-vinyl single featuring “Al Fin Voy a Encontrate,” a rare Spanish-language version of “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere.” The Polydor Years also comes with a 64-page hardcover book filled with info and photos.

The band currently is taking a break after finishing up a U.S. summer tour in early September. The Moodies’ next scheduled trek is a U.K. outing that begins in Plymouth, England June 6, 2015.
