Long Distance Voyager is a Moody Blues album released in 1981, and was their first with keyboardist Patrick Moraz in place of original keyboardist Mike Pinder who had departed in 1978.
Long Distance Voyager is only partially a concept album, as only half of the songs relate to the "voyager" referred to in the album's title. The final three tracks comprise a mini-suite that combines themes of carnival jesters and the chaos experienced backstage at a rock show.
Upon release in 1981, Long Distance Voyager became the Moody Blues' second U.S. number one album, and was also the source of the Top 20 singles "Gemini Dream" (#12) and "The Voice" (#15). It also continued their winning streak in their native UK, reaching #7 there.
NASA's Voyager spacecraft is at the top of the front side of the album cover. Both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2's flybys of Saturn were in the news in 1980-81.
In November 2008, the album was remastered and released on CD with one extra track.
Comes with foil splice, pads and a 7-day money back guarantee from 8tracksRBack.
