Présentation de l'éditeur
New - Updated Expanded Edition
With the feedback from our readers we expanded our first
edition's content. We have fixed the few errors and rare factual inaccuracies
we had found.
Several readers asked that we look at and make meaning about
more of their songs. We have done that with three (see next page): 'Question,'
'New Horizons,' and 'I'm just a singer' (in a R&R band).
after completing this book we went on their first "Moodies Cruise" and now
include a summary of our experience there. We obtained the new Timeless Flight box set that was
released three months after this book and listened to the CDs and watched its
DVD video material. We also read their extensive accompanying "coffee table"
sized book. We have read the many online comments on this box set and have included
a relevant few of them in our 7 page review of this large box set.
Some readers commented on our interpretations of the
Moodies' lyrics as not being the final word, which we had already acknowledged.
We have always been open to others' interpretations and even set up a website
for readers to add theirs. We had never proposed that ours were the only
understandings. We have also reflected on the lyrics the way they fit into our
long experience helping people heal and healing ourselves. There is a great
gift to knowing the Moodies' message.
