Caught Live + 5 is a live album by The Moody Blues, consisting of a 12 December 1969 live show at the Royal Albert Hall and five previously unreleased studio recordings from 1967 to 1968. The band's performance was a popular and critical success at the time.
Due to interpersonal strife, the Moody Blues called it quits between 1972's Seventh Sojourn and 1978's Octave. Presumably attempting to satiate hungry Moodies fans, Threshold released this vintage concert recording from a 1969 Royal Albert Hall show. The band was young and at the peak of its popularity, and they sound full of promise and ambition. Most of the songs come from their classic concept album Days of Future Passed and its two successors. Having not yet settled into a more comfortable ballad mode, the group was at the peak of its psych/prog powers.
Caught Live + 5 is a music live recording by THE MOODY BLUES (Crossover Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1977 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Now, the +5 means that there are five songs that were recorded in the studio but never made it onto a proper Moody Blues album. However, all 5 are terribly bland with not much to them. Heck, the vocals are rather weak and out of time on ''Please Think About It''.

Tuesday, June 21, 2016. The Moody Blues - Caught Live + 5 (1977). This post consists of MP3's (320kps) ripped from my pristine vinyl copy and features full album artwork and label scans. Although this live album doesn't really give justice to the Moody's brilliance when recording in the studio, it does give us a glimpse of what they were like on stage in the early part of their career. As Bruce Eder indicates, the fourth side (all new studio tracks) is the highlight of this release and should not be overlooked.
