''Every Good Boy Deserves Favour'', the sixth album by the Moody Blues' psychedelic-era lineup, was released in 1971. The album was the last to feature only the Mellotron, as it would be assisted by the Chamberlin (another device that uses recorded tape to generate sound) on the Moody Blues' next studio album, 1972's ''Seventh Sojourn''.

This album featured the only track to be written by all five members of the band. The opening "Procession" was a piece that was intended to describe the history of music from the beginning of time up until the album's recording. The only three words heard in this track --"desolation," "creation," and "communication" -- were similarly used (along with many other "-ation" words) in "One More Time to Live."

The album reached #1 on the UK album charts, in addition to a three week stay at #2 in the U.S., and produced one top-40 single, "The Story In Your Eyes." The track "Emily's Song" was written by John Lodge for his newborn daughter.

The title is taken from the student mnemonic for the lines of the treble clef: E-G-B-D-F. These notes are heard played on piano during "Procession."

In April 2007 the album was remastered into SACD format and repackaged with the two extra tracks.

In 2008 a remaster for standard audio CD was issued with the same bonus tracks. - Wikipedia
