Justin Hayward celebrates his 73rd birthday today. You don’t think of the Moody Blues as a garage band.  or an angry band. But the song “The Story in Your Eyes” was an angry song that was mostly recorded in a garage. It was on the album “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” in 1971.  Here is Justin Hayward to explain.

“It was a kind of an angry song and it was started in a proper recording studio and finished up in Mike Pinder’s garage and mixed there. And this really came out of an A-minor guitar riff and frantic drums. The original version really swung and the end of it went on for ages and ages. It’s just a huge jam session, none of which appears on the record.”
