The Moody Blues are a legendary rock band from England.  While they got their start playing rhythm and blues, they became famous with their merging of rock and classical music in the late 1960’s.  Ultimately, they are considered one of the founders and masters of the progressive rock genre, which has now landed them in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Here is The Moody Blues album discography.
