I've been thinking about this over the last few days. We have two boys 10 and 12 years old. I've have done my best to indoctrinate them in terms of quality music over the years. I really think that Jeff's music has won out (over The Monkees, Boston, Little Steven, The Killers - I know it's a stange mix). They just seem to like a good tune and words they can hear - and understand a bit. There was excitement over the purchase of FOON and so as not to get them tired of it I've been putting on Time in the car CD player. The youngest now likes Ticket to the Moon as well as Hold on Tight and Twilight - I'm sure they'll grow to love the other ones. Anyway, it wasn't the first ELO album I owned (Santa - Discovery!), but it was the first I spent my own pocket money on. Listening to it again from start to finish (skipping AHB - sorry!), with the great bonus tracks just brings it all back. It feels like it was some kind of 'rite of passage'. Music is just such a wonderful thing...Any other suggestions?
Sounds to me like you're doing alright without suggestions, but I would recommend some Divine Comedy or Pugwash as they are heavily ELO influenced, have brilliant lyrics and lovely tunes For these reasons discerning adults can also appreciate them.
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
