The Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin - Isle Of Wight Festival




In 1970 the Moody Blues were art their creative and commercial peak. After reinventing themselves from their R & B roots to a much more sophisticated sound, between 1967 and 1970 they released five albums, four of which hits top 5 in the UK, with two of them going #1. They enjoyed similar success in the US where four of their albums hit the top 20 and the other was just outside.


At the end of August 1970, shortly after their release of their album 'A Question of Balance', The Moody Blues took to the stage of the Isle Of Wight Festival in front of an audience estimated at over 1/2 million.





Lyrics

Nights in white satin

Never reaching the end

Letters I've written

Never meaning to send


Beauty I'd always missed

With these eyes before

Just what the truth is

I can't say any more


'Cause I love you

Yes I love you

Oh how I love you


Gazing at people, some hand in hand

Just what I'm going through they can't understand

Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend

Just what you want to be, you will be in the end


And I love you

Yes I love you

Oh how I love you

Oh how I love you


Nights in white satin

Never reaching the end

Letters I've written

Never meaning to send


Beauty I've always missed

With these eyes before

Just what the truth is

I can't say any more


'Cause I love you

Yes I love you

Oh how I love you

Oh how I love you

'Cause I love you

Yes I love you

Oh how I love you

Oh how I love you
