2008 reissue of their 1970 album, Question of Balance. The album was an attempt by the group to strip down their well-known lush, psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. For the first time, The Moody Blues used political strife as a basis for songwriting with the UK number two hit in May 1970, "Question", which dealt with the controversy resulting from the ongoing Vietnam War. The album reached #1 in the UK and #3 in the U.S. In 2008, Moody Blues reissues its first seven album releases, each with bonus content and each release in this set of their first seven evolutionary albums includes a varying number of special mixes or versions of songs that are also represented in their final form on the respective albums from their highly spectacular career. 10 original tracks plus six bonus.

Reviews:

''A Question of Balance'', released in 1970, is the fifth album by The Moody Blues psychedelic era line-up. The album was an attempt by the group to strip down their well-known lush, psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. In order to be able to play as many new songs as possible from their new album live, the group decided (temporarily) to abandon their method of heavy overdubbing for ''A Question of Balance''.

For the first time, The Moody Blues used political strife as a basis for songwriting with the UK number two hit in May 1970, "Question", which dealt with the controversy resulting from the ongoing Vietnam War.

Released in 1970, the album reached #1 in the UK and #3 in the U.S. However, the group would abandon the stripped-down sounds of ''A Question of Balance'' for the lusher sounds of their next two albums, ''Every Good Boy Deserves Favour'' and ''Seventh Sojourn''.

In March 2006 the album was remastered into SACD format and repackaged with six extra tracks.

In 2008 a remaster for standard audio CD was issued with the same bonus tracks. - Wikipedia
