Remember what album they were touring?
If memory serves me well it was Out of the Blue .
Absolutly. Out of the blue was one among the first albums I bought. Enjoyed the concert in Oslo, on his last tour, a few years back - a hit parade from start to encore
ELO was one of the top 5 bands that formed my early musical interest. And it doesn't hurt that in my senior high school year I once sat in a cute girl's bedroom where we listened to "Out Of The Blue" for the first time. Somewhat regrettably that was all we did, but I was young and preternaturally stupid.
Oh yeah, I saw them warm up Jethro Tull, in Los Angeles.
eLO’s string section had white whigs that changed color with the stage lights. Ian held them over for his performance too! It was a great night of perfect music!
I had this 45 rpm!! Remember 45rmp’s? I had a giant stack! .72 cents each.
As Cream once sang, “Those were the days, yes they were!”
Great memories. Was that in your pre-weasel days?
Love this one , a beautiful piece of music .
Lynne, the last real Wilbury.
Jeff was not only one of the best mixers/producers/composer's of his genre but a bloody good guitarist to boot, his accomplishments over the years are IMO understated.
Definitely! I had a couple of the old ELO records back in the 70s. Jeff Lynne is musical genius.
That sounds like a hell of a show
Yea, a fantastic player. And can play anything else as well. Some guys just have it all!
Wife and I saw Jeff before the “Lockdown”... Still brings it!
Which arena? Was a great tour.
early days his sound is unmistakable
The Idle Race ~ A Better Life (The Weatherman Knows) written by Jeff Lynne
Lest we forget what a beautiful, powerful voice he has.
Love Jeff and ELO. He seems to be a genuinely great guy too, and perhaps the most humble person in rock. Truly a master of melody but also had a sweet sweet penchant for orchestration (surprise), color and layers. Not a stretch to regard him as the greatest producer in the history of rock, no matter how heavy that title feels. My favorite clip of him is this one...ironically, a barely produced performance with him, an acoustic guitar and longtime sidekick Richard Tandy on a gorgeous-sounding grand piano. In my opinion, Jeff’s greatest composing triumph:
