The latest Icon series releases available on July 19 -- Icon and Icon 2 -- single disc and double disc formats -- will include The Moody Blues' legendary hits and fan favorites from their 14 studio albums that have spanned more than 35 years of groundbreaking music: Days Of Future Passed (1967), In Search Of The Lost Chord (1968), On The Threshold Of A Dream (1969), To Our Children's Children's Children (1969), A Question of Balance (1970), Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (1971), Seventh Sojourn (1972), Octave (1978), Long Distance Voyager (1981), The Present (1983), The Other Side Of Life (1986), Sur La Mer (1988), Keys Of The Kingdom (1991) and Strange Times (1999).
