This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is a rare, untitled Japanese promotional sampler LP by the Moody Blues, issued in 1973.

About this copy: This untitled LP is a compilation album by the Moody Blues, issued to Japanese radio in 1973, likely to promote the then-new Seventh Sojourn album and the tour that followed it.

The album originally included a booklet; that booklet is missing.  The LP was issued without an obi.

The cover is VG, with slight ring wear and a moderate amount of foxing, particularly on the back of the cover, which is all white with no printing.

The disc is VG++  with a visible but inaudible mark through the first track on side 1.

A nice copy of a scarce Moody Blues LP and the only copy we’ve ever seen.

Background: Following the release of Seventh Sojourn, the Moody Blues embarked on a tour of Japan and this LP was issued to promote the then-new album as well as some older LPs.
