Very pleased to see that there's a 2CD expanded edition of The Birthday Party album coming out in March. There's a fair amount of already available material on there but a first ever CD release of the 'substantially different' mono version.
Here's hoping that the other two studio albums get the same treatment.

I finally got around to listening to this the other day. It's not as if I haven't had any time on my hands lately!!
It doesn't matter that there's a fair amount of duplication when compared to the Back To the Story compilation, this is an essential purchase for fans of the Idle Race and eccentric 60's pop alike. Finally comparing the mono and stereo mixes is a real treat and as with the earlier Beatles albums, there's an engaging artificiality to the stereo 'creation'. The Birthday Party LPis a (seemingly) long-lost classic and courtesy of this reissue, Jeff's early adventures in a recording studio have never sounded so good.

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?
