During a recent interview between Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues and Michael Pinkus, executive producer of Justin’s upcoming PBS special, Justin told an amazing tale. Captured in a new PBS Exclusive DVD titled “The Story Behind Nights In White Satin” by award-winning director David Minasian, Justin reveals the circumstances surrounding his world-renown mega-hit. Without being a spoiler, it seems the fate of The Moody Blues may have been forever altered by a delayed flight carrying The Supremes back in 1967! Really?
As it turned out, the release of ‘Nights’ in 1967 was so controversial, a top record executive at Decca Records resigned over it, exclaiming, as he cleared out his desk, that “the song would never work”. Yet others at Decca loved it. The song’s polarizing effect puzzled it’s young composer. “It was an odd thing”, Justin exclaimed, as if he were talking about something as simple as the weather.
