This is essentially the first ELO album (known as "No Answer") minus "Nellie Takes Her Bow" and adds some early takes of songs from the first two albums.

But... this disc sounds great! If you're a fan of early ELO or The Move this is the CD to get for the best sound quality just don't expect it to be a greatest hits album.

The 2006 remaster of No Answer (besides the intrusive digital tape hiss removal) has a pinched upper midrange that makes it harsh sounding. This CD more resembles the amazing Harry T. Moss mastered UK vinyl.

This CD was quite a treat for me to hear. 10538 Overture is free from the tape dropouts found on many of the Jet/Epic/Legacy reissues and hasn't been mutilated with Noise Reduction and heavy handed EQ work unlike the 2006 Peter Mew remaster.

Very recommended!

This Best Of only covers 1971 - 1973, so really early days only.
Some of the songs are quite experimental and therefore not particularly to my taste.
10538 Overture is a superb debut single which is not on all their Greatest Hits collections, sounds like ELO were listerning to The Beatles I Am The Walrus, in fact so does most of the ELO cataloge !
Showdown is good, as is over 6 minutes of Roll Over Beethoven.
So if you want the bulk of their hits, try elsewhere.

I quite like ELO and I Picked up this best of collection cheaply. It's terrible. The tracks selected as "best of" are simply not the best of ELO at all. On top of all that the production just seems terrible. As a result I very rarely listen to this CD. Do yourself a favour and go buy another ELO collection.
