im not a fan of his recordings of some older records of other artists either to be honest.... i like the original recordings in the format they were then, the magic way they were recorded and sounded then...thats how it should be...
Regardless of our opinions or outlooks on a Volume 2, didn't the relatively recent The Very Best of ELO, Volume 2: Ticket to the Moon tank commercially... especially when compared with it's predecessor?
A loyal and pesky member of ELO forums since April, 2007.
there are too many 'best of' elo albums and 'greatest hits'....they outnumber the original albums...i know, they make money...but...enough is enough...surely...
Hear hear! I agree. I think this perpetuates the notion that all ELO have released is 'Mr Blue Sky'. And it doesn't address the fact that, by sticking a spaceship or futuristic imagery on the cover, most people will have no idea that ELO started off by making decidedly non-shiny pop music.

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.
