The Moodies have the rare distinction of having chart success in three different decades (60’s, 70’s & 80’s). They were one of the first bands to utilize Classical influences and have to be considered to be the masters of combining the Rock ideal with a Symphonic feel. Their complex arrangements and mastery of the previously unused mellotron on their early albums were certainly unique. What appears to be hampering their chances are the twin perceptions of being a Progressive Rock band (which as documented in earlier entries) and the very classical elements they use which is again devoid of any Hall representation. Already eligible for twenty years for induction, their wait will likely be longer until the Hall looks at the genre.
