This 'greatest hits' collection brings together some of the finest moments from Birmingham prog-rock outfit Electric Light Orchestra. Mixing Beatlesque pop with classical arrangements ELO scored a spate of UK top ten hits throughout the seventies, many of which are featured here.

ELO began as an outgrowth of '60s UK psych-rockers the Move and the Idle Race, but when former Move frontman Roy Wood departed early in the game, Jeff Lynne fashioned the band as a high-tech Beatles for the '70s. Featuring a full-time string section, ELO picked up where "Strawberry Fields" left off, creating orchestral Britpop without the pretence of prog-rock. The band's slick, lush sound helped define '70s pop, and proved influential decades later to the likes of Air and the Polyphonic Spree.

Never could see a great deal in ELO, especially disappointing considering how good the Move and Idle Race were.

Off topic, but saw the Move about 18 months back. Only 2 original members but can still play 'So you want to be a rock and roll' star' far better than the Byrds ever did.

Love ELO thanks for this :thumbsup:

Oh Andy I love this its just lovely Hot hot hot:thumbsup:

Blimey. Does EVERY album you buy have to have "Fire on High" on it, otherwise you vote it cold, regardless of the price? Your partner must be driven mad by that track if it has to be on every CD you own.:p

Great band.

great album, hot

Great band, superb CD at fantastic price. Heat added.

Top album at a great price

Still have most of their Albums from the 70's when I was a fan. A very good price for their greatest hits but got it already of course.

RIP Kelly. :-(

Lol, that track's gash.

This deal is all the more hot for me as it doesn't have that piece of prog-rock onanism on it.

Eee cracking stuff, it takes me back to when I were a lad.

Thanks for sharing your personal opinion. :roll:

Just get the bands albums. Everything up to and including Time were magical. Hardly a bad track on any of them.

It's not my personal opinion, it's the word of God. The original stone tablets, the ones that Moses smashed, read:

Thou shalt not place boring, rambling, musicianship-for-its-own-sake nonsense on compilations amongst such gold as Sweet Talkin Woman and Mr Blue Sky, for that wilt be an abomination before God.

Sold out already? Awwww

Thou shalt not post boring rambling opinions in HUKD lest you be seen as a muppet of the highest order.
