Electric Light Orchestra: Mr. Blue Sky - The Very Best of ELO




When JEFF LYNNE was at it making covers in the studio he also found time to re-record his main band ELO´s finest from the back catalogue. With new technology at hand, and handling all instruments himself Jeff has created something of a blockbuster in the charts.

All the famed songs are here if cause, “Evil Woman”, “10538 Overture” (albeit in a 40th Anniversary guise), “Do Ya” and of cause “Livin´ Thing”. The same 60´s buzzing vocals as on the solo covers album, no other musicians involved and the many almost mesmerizing refrains all contribute to some delicious pop in an all but modern costume. But I guess that is the aim here. And on the bright side “Livin´ Thing” will never be forgotten, neither will “Evil Woman”, “Showdown”, “Do Ya” or “10538 Overture”. But the general touch is quite stale and not for anyone into rock of any kind, and if you´re into pop, what´s to hesitate about?
