    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Steppin’ in a Slide Zone” is a 1978 single by the English progressive rock band The Moody Blues. It was the first single The Moody Blues had released in five years, after the band’s temporary hiatus. It was written by bassist John Lodge, and was released a month later on the album Octave.

    One of the most noticeable differences in the band’s sound after this hiatus was the fact that the Mellotron and Chamberlin (a similar instrument to the Mellotron) had been replaced with the more widely used synthesizer, and “Steppin’ In a Slide Zone” was the first of their singles to use the synthesizer. The synthesizer would ultimately give The Moody Blues a more electronic sound which departed from the more symphonic sound of their past career.
