As I'm not an "audiophile" or a professional sound engineer, I'm not going to discuss the merits of "bad EQ" or the engineering expertise of EMI's Peter Mew. As a long-time ELO fan, I will say that I like what I hear on this CD. For those not fortunate enough to procure the "First Light" 2-disk UK edition of ELO 2, this is the next best thing. This was the transitional album from the original experiment of Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne, to the singular vision of Jeff Lynne and what became the "classic" ELO sound in the mid 1970's. Lynne himself said that he created the long pieces on this album because that what he thought he was supposed to do - and some of the tracks do suffer a bit from rambling arrangements. But as Roy Wood was involved in the recording of "in Old England Town" and "From The Sun To The World" and then left to form Wizzard, it may have been that Jeff was trying to carry on in the spirit of his old mate. Where Jeff was left to his own muse ("Mama" and "Kuiama"), the results were spectacular. And the decision to cover "Roll Over Beethoven" was a masterstroke - meld Jeff's beloved Beatles with Beethoven, and really rock the house down. It was the beginning of Lynne's pop music renaissance (from "On The Third Day" to "Out Of The Blue" ELO made some of the 70's most memorable music IMHO).

So let's talk about the "Roll Over Beethoven" version that is on this CD. I've heard from sources close to Jeff Lynne that it was Jeff's decision to go with the original UK version of "ROB" on this CD, edited from the "full-length" version of the song that came out on the US LP, both on United Artists Records, and reissued on CBS. I must say that I was disappointed that Jeff chose the UK version over the US version, as that's the one I'm most familiar with (and prefer).

HERE IS THE NEWS

As part of its long overdue upgrading of The Electric Light Orchestra catalog, Epic/Legacy has finally released "2," the second album from these prog-pop pioneers who had promised to "pick up where the Beatles left off with 'Strawberry Fields' and 'I Am the Walrus' back when they were formed in 1971. Not only did they ultimately achieve their goal, but they continued on, breaking new ground sonically and artistically, becoming one of the great bands of all time.

This outstanding re-master of ELO 2 gives us sterling sound, improved graphics, interesting liner notes, and outstanding bonus tracks--all wrapped around the original core of bracingly bold and (mostly) highly enjoyable songs. Founders Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood (who departed midway through the recording of "2"), and Bev Bevan invaded the studio like Vikings bent on conquest and produced a sound that accurately reflects their transition from the darker hues of their earlier band, The Move, to the art-pop sensibilities that later typified the sleek ELO.

"ELO 2" was a pivotal album for ELO as Roy Wood departed in mid-stream (though he plays uncredited on the two "Boogies.") It's wildly experimental, at times rough and barely listenable, but it is a brilliant and stirring piece of work. (We must note: this album is entitled "2" by the ORIGINAL Electric Light Orchestra; it is not the self-titled debut of "The Electric Light Orchestra Part Two.") This early 1973 album is a master work, albeit somewhat flawed by later ELO production standards. It was here that ELO truly became Jeff Lynne's band, and he makes the most of it.

The recent care and beautiful attention that has been afforded the music of one JEFF LYNNE and his band THE ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA is nothing short of dream come true stuff for me and many millions of fans worldwide. The people below who left those inane reviews have an agenda. They have personal grudges. Their views are idiotic and juvenile and I'm doing my little bit to right this wrong.

They talk of "Hiss" and "EQ" as if they know and respect what these things are. They don't. If you read their posts carefully they actually can't spell!! I'd say "EQ" had to be spellchecked?I'm also saying "they" but I don't think we'd be far wrong in thinking this is the work of one spotty cretin with a big box of tissues, heavy curtains and a 15 watt bulb.....?

"The Electric Light Orchestra" (No Answer) and "ELO 2" sound the way God intended to me and "God" is JEFF LYNNE. He has the final say over "HIS" product and that man has never ONCE had his radar off kilter.....NEVER!! I bought these records in the seventies and the vinyl sounded fantastic. I've purchased re-issues, cassettes, 8-Tracks and all manor of different variations of these records and yes, the longer those shoddy re-issues kept coming the more I went back to my vinyl BUT.....

.....ever since ROB CAIGER and a dedicated core of people set out on finding original master tapes and getting the original artist and players involved, THEN also convincing a HUGE conglomerate like SONY to take notice, ELO's back catalogue is only NOW beginning it's rightful accent to were it belongs.

I'm as big a fan of this music as is humanly possible and I've recorded and released my own records to critical acclaim over the last 10 years or so, I KNOW "EQ", "COMPRESSION" and bloody "HISS" so listen to this.....

ELO's "ELO II" CD remaster has different cover?
This is the cover art from the UK release, so the cover on the reissue *is* the original art work. :)
