Editorial Reviews

The Electric Light Orchestra were born in the late 60s as a coming together of the creative energies of songwriters Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne and final founding member Bev Bevan. Taking their brand of classically-infused pop and rock to both sides of the Atlantic, ELO became one of the biggest selling rock acts of the 1970s, notching up 10 UK Top 10 albums and 15 UK Top 10 singles. ELO's eponymous debut album has been painstakingly remastered for its 40th Anniversary and expanded with over two hours of bonus material. Now spanning a CD/DVD double, the album includes the original Quad mix in DTS 96kHz/24 bit 4.1 surround sound, the original stereo master in high-resolution 96kHz/24 bit PCM, the original '10538 Overture' promo film and extensive liner notes charting the history of the release. The 40th Anniversary Special Edition of 'Electric Light Orchestra' is also available remastered on double gatefold 180gm vinyl.

I'm assuming that if you're reading this that you're already familiar with the original LP that was released 40 years ago. In my mind, the primary draw of this reissue is the original quadraphonic mix on the bonus DVD. Of all the quad titles issued in the 70's, this has always been one of the more difficult ones to find. So having the mix put onto a DVD is very welcome. And what a mix! If you're someone who does not like a lot of activity in the rear speakers, you might want to pass. But if you're like me, and you like to hear lots of stuff going on behind you, you'll love the mix on this one. It's a very discreet mix. Cellos and other instruments are frequently thrown to the rear speakers to great effect. The album really comes to life in quad. You may never want to hear it in stereo again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Electric Light Orchestra -- 2 Disc Set December 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the debut album for The Electric Light Orchestra, and it is by far one of the greatest tasks that Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan and Roy Wood did together. There is a significant amount of baroque and rock music, and this album definitely paves the way for the second album "The Electric Light Orchestra II" that came out in 1973. This album, though, with the hit single "10538 Overture", written by Jeff Lynne, has become iconic throughout the world as the beginning of one of the greatest bands of the 1970s! This is definitely an album any ELO lover will want to have in their collection, and I highly recommend it for anybody who has an ear for the serious classical and rock combination that's throughout this whole album! Enjoy!

The Electric Light Orchestra's eponymous debut album paved the way for Jeff Lynne's sonic creation of their second album "The Electric Light Orchestra II". The second album gives the listener a chance to hear Jeff Lynne's production qualities in the studio as well as in the writing style he used for this and all subsequent albums by ELO. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars ELO debut album. June 23, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Highly recommend this release. All the audiophile points aside, recording quality is superb and sublimely listenable. A real treat for the ears or should I say ear candy? So if you're in the mood for ELO ya gotta get you some of this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Turning the Light on November 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Electric Light Orchestra's first self titled album was released in December 1971 and due to a mix up with their American distributor was released as No Answer in the U.S. in Early 1972. ELO had evolved from a group called The Move. In fact, recording of the first ELO album was being done simultaneously with The Move's last album Message From The Country. The original line up consisted of: Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan with Bill Hunt and Steve Woolam The idea for the band was to combine rock and pop music with a classical influence while "picking up where The Beatles left off." The album has a much different feel from later albums and, aside from "10538 Overture", songs from it rarely turn up on compilation albums. The album was originally released in both stereo and quadraphonic. This version has the stereo version along with some alternate versions on the cd while a dvd is provided turning the quad mix into 4.1 surround sound. The dvd disc also includes the promo video for "10538 Overture'.
