Every Good Boy Deserves Favour is the seventh studio album by British progressive rock band The Moody Blues, originally released in July 1971 via Threshold Records.

The Moody Blues first came to prominence playing rhythm and blues music, but their second album, Days of Future Passed, which was released in 1967, was a fusion of rock with classical music and established them as pioneers in the development of art rock and progressive rock. It has been described as a "landmark" and "one of the first successful concept albums". They became known internationally with singles including “Go Now”, “Nights in White Satin”, “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Question”. They have been awarded 18 platinum and gold discs. Their album sales total 70 million.

The classic band line-up settled in late 1966 with Justin Hayward (vocals, guitars), John Lodge (vocals, bass), Graeme Edge (drums, vocals), Ray Thomas (flute, harmonica, percussion, vocals) and Mike Pinder (vocals, keyboards).

The title of the album "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour" was borrowed, tongue-in-cheek, from a mnemonic used to remember the musical notes that form the lines of the treble clef: EGBDF.

The opening track "Procession" was the only song on the album composed by all five band members, a fascinating track depicting the "evolution" of music, leading into Hayward's "Story in Your Eyes".

Thomas's reflective "Our Guessing Game" and whimsical "Nice To Be Here" offset the deeper drama of Hayward's "You Can Never Go Home", Lodge's "One More Time To Live" and Pinder's "My Song". Graeme Edge, the long-standing drummer-poet, started writing lyrics intended to be sung, rather than verses to be spoken – his "After You Came" featured each of the four lead singers taking a vocal section.

The album reached #2 on the US Billboard 200 and #1 on the UK albums charts.

This album is a 2018 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with download code, pressed in Europe via Threshold Records.
