The Moody Blues - Seventh Sojourn (1972)

Seventh Sojourn, released in 1972, was the eighth album released by The Moody Blues. On Seventh Sojourn, The Moody Blues replaced the Mellotron with a keyboard called the Chamberlin, a device similar to the Mellotron created by the original inventor of the device, Harry Chamberlin. It could simulate orchestral sounds more realistically and easily than the Mellotron. Two hit singles came from this album: "Isn't Life Strange" and "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)." However, both songs were overshadowed in the United States by "Nights in White Satin," which had its first single release in the U.S. in 1968. Whereas both singles from Seventh Sojourn merely made the top 40, "Nights" hit number two, which was the highest chart position for a Moody Blues single. - Wikipedia
