Ideally, this song should be played through earphones. You should sit back in a comfortable chair, and close your eyes – at least for the first go-around. Watch the video as well. Although it was not a part of the original song, it’s a very nice addition. The flute solo – at about mid-point – starts in your left ear, slowly moves toward the center, jiggles your brains around a bit then slides to the right, then back to the center, and… This was a continuation of the next level of audio engineering.
The production of “In Search of the Lost Chord,” and in particular “Legend of a Mind,” is a perfect storm of: the sixties, drugs, the music, the artists, the technology, and the recording engineers.
“Legend of a Mind” is a song by the British progressive rock band The Moody Blues, and was written by the band’s flautist Ray Thomas, who provides the lead vocals. “Legend of a Mind” was recorded in January 1968 and was first released on the Moody Blues’ album In Search of the Lost Chord. It was the first song recorded for the album. read more from Wiki...
Big thanks to Bobby W. Boyer who turned me on to the Moody Blues in Santa Ana, California around 1968.
