'Seventh Sojourn' was a record full of classic Moodies songs, and it was America’s favourite album for five weeks.
It was no instant success, but gradually, the group's new marriage of pop and orchestral ingredients began to turn heads.
'A Question Of Balance' included the big hit 'Question,' as 1970 saw the Moodies go from strength to strength.
The song hit the UK chart on 20 August 1983, on the eve of the band's 11th studio album 'The Present.'
In the summer of 1971, the band topped the British charts with an album that contained no chart singles at all.
The Moodies hit their stride with a memorable fourth album in the final year of the 1960s.
The group's 1972 preview of their upcoming 'Seventh Sojourn' was one of their finest hours.
The group’s destiny turned in a new direction with their January 1968 UK chart entry.
