Well, I'll break with my recent tradition and be on time for my review this time.
01. "If I had Words" by Scott Fitzgerald & Yvonne Keeley - Like the South American anthematic chorus and the beautiful collage of voices. Both singers really good, a little touch of Elton John and Steve Winwood for Fitzgerald. That was fun, I will be playing it again!
02. "You're My World" by Darryl Braithwaite - Wow, this is a cool record collection, you have Plat! Another great inspiring chorus. Kind of a "Sweet Caroline" kind of song, but maybe not quite as cheesy. Ha ha.
03. "Turn the Page" by Jon English - Ah ah ah. Nobody covers Bob Seger, that's like covering Michael Jackson, can't cover the definitive versions. Still like it because it's a great song. But hey, no need for anyone to re-do "Strawberry Fields Forever", and same with this song. However, I do admit, sounds like Jon English has a good voice, and doesn't do it a total injustice by any means. The orchestral touches are pretty decent.
04. "Hollywood Seven" by Jon English - Interesting theme for a song, enjoy the story and the flow song. Captivating. Definitely a song Roger Daltry should cover on one of his solo albums, he'd probably knock it out of the park too. Sounds a lot like his solo stuff; and definitely his style of singing, which is certainly a great compliment of Jon Stewart's singing.
05. "Lady" by Little River Band - Really nothing to not like in this song. Great singing, harmonies, verse, and chorus. Very romantic song. Quite the classic for sure. The chorus packs a great punch.
Star Rating: 4.6 out of 5 Prime Cuts: "If I Had Words", "Hollywood Seven", "Lady" Bottom Line: I can see where these would definitely be among my favorites in my 45s collection, if I had one.
Great stuff, Platypus, thoroughly enjoyed them. If you're marked down for a next time before the year closes out, then looking forward to it. ha ha.

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
