Title: Further Remasters Of ELO Albums
Post by: Judemac on Jul 07, 2005, 05:41
Does anyone know if they are going to remaster "Face The Music", "New World Record" & "Out Of the Blue" with bonus tracks? It appears either there was nothing to add or simply the albums stood the test of time on the original track sequence. Just wondering really  :?

I know there's an unreleased song called "Supersonic" which should show up on one of those records when the remasters resume, but I can't confirm that.

"Supersonic" . Never heard that one. Something to look forward to.

Well, never heard about that track but it may be a demo like the one included on the "Eldorado" remaster. Thanks for the heads up! I'll keep my eyes & ears open & check here. It would be nice to to do some more remasters because the rehash of 'Best Of's" are getting boring...

No, SUPERSONIC is a finished song. And a great one it is ...according to those fans who got the chance to listen to it at a German fan convention in September 2004. Rob Caiger who had been invited as a special guest  also played a wealth of  unreleased alternative versions of ELO songs.

What I find annoying about the unreleased stuff is how they are milking it for all theyre worth. Instead of gathering it all and releasing an ELO rarities album, we have to buy EVERY back catalogue remaster in order to hear them.

Yes I believe that song was written for the TV show Supersonic which Mike Mansfield had a hand in. Mike Mansfield was also the producer for the Wembley video and many other ELO TV productions.

Supersonic. So there is a song and perhaps some unreleased video thing. This is when it starts to get really fascinating. I would like to see it plus the interview segment with the guy who introduced himself as someone from outer space. I always wondered if there was a version of the Wembley concert without the fishtank effects. Did I dream that Kelly Groucutt plays a Hoffner bass in the TRAIN OF GOLD clip or does he actually play a Hoffner?

I agree with you beachboy on milking it out every back catalogue album. Then again, They have done this with "The Beatles" as well. Making money is what the record companies want and tracks not worthy of selling won't be on remasters. Only collectors really want the rare stuff anyway, Right!

The FLASHBACK triple CD set had a bunch of obscure goodies on it and it still seemed to sell pretty well. It is worth purchasing if you have not already been out of the blue to get it. Any naughty details on where I might be able to get my hands on this much spoken about Into the Light treasure trove thing?

Balance of Power could also be a nice remaster. A lot of outakes and different versions of songs .

- Heaven Only Knows , i was blown away when i heard this song on a fan meeting. this version begins with a prayer

- A Matter a Fact   , alternat lyrics

- ELO Megamix  . a B side of Getting to the point but quickly withdrawn by Jeff . allmost 10 minutes !

- Caught in a Trap

a new remaster of Secret Messages with Beatles Forever, Hello My Old Friend  would also be nice

If There are no great bonus tracks for Face the Music or A New Wolrd Record they could made 1 remaster with both LP's.

I know there are some more alternate takes and/or mixes of tracks from those albums - kind of like the alternate Do Ya and Mission which showed up on Flashback.

The alternate beginning to "Heaven Only Knows" is cool too. Balance of Power was supposed to be finished in the summer of 85, but Jeff was dissatisified with it and had it entirely remixed. BOP finally came out about a year later than planned. Whether this "Heaven" alternate was from the original sessions, is unclear to me.

Post by: ELO_chick on Jul 17, 2005, 04:35
I have an interview with Jeff in which he said when asked why "Beatles Forever" wasn't included.

"I really don't  know why that wasn't included - just kidding.  It's just one I'd rather keep in the cupboard....it's so fawning ya know, it's so over the top. Ya know. Well maybe one day we'll put it out, but I'd sooner redo it or something."

So don't hold your breath.

yeah, a 'restored' Secret messages which is TRUE to the original concept released as a double CD album with properly mixed and mastered version of the songs that got binned. Would give jeff something invigortating to do in between louging around the pool in all that hot californian sunshine.

I know where you can "Into the Light" in which is the original & not that bs version on E Bay but the problem is the guy who originated it will no longer get one for anyone. Best I can do is make a copy of it(e mail me if interested). Surprised how many people don't know about this double CD. Anyway, thats about all I have to say about it. :?

Hey, wait a minute, Jeff knows a good thing when it happens, the Hot California sun is nice, LOL. Toke a little trip up to Beverly Hills a few weeks ago & found a few rocks stars houses (Ozzie Ozborrnes, elton John's & George Micheals to name a few). Did not find Jeff's, figure he has a place around Tom Petty's in the canyon, LOL.

LOL, Nope did not see Jeff's Villa, I believe he lives pretty close to Tom Petty(which is in a different area). As for the sun, it's around 100 degrees at work but at my house it is 75 or so, why because the beach is much cooler.

Engrossing thread, people. Lots that I haven't heard about, despite being a pretty big ELO fan. Well, I thought I was! Yes, Secret Messages would be great as an (officially released) double album thingie. Tasty stuff. :)

I wouldn't hold my breath for a continuation of the Remasters.  When Zoom stiffed, and the tour got cancelled the record company probably figured they shouldn't sink any more investment into the ELO brand...  It really is a shame, the record business is all about "what have you done for me lately"...

I heard that Jeff lives in Bel Air.  I wondered how close he was to all the LA fires I've seen lately.  Maybe there's a UFO painted on the side of his house!

Post by: Marc on Feb 01, 2006, 02:50
Hi all

My friend who handles publicity for SONY BMG in their London offices revealed to me that the overdue CD remasters of the ELO back catologue will get into full swing in March with the expanded remasters of the first two ELO albums. I told him I knew this already to which he replied that that was not all. Probing him further about this he swore me to secrecy and stated that On The Third Day, Face The Music and A New World Record expanded remasters will follow in April. Out Of The Blue and Balance Of Power will follow in June. As proof he brought round and showed me the Sony BMG release schedule for the first half of this year and sure enough the ELO titles were all on there. Yippeeee!!!!! I'm so excited I've racing round the room in delirious excitement!!!!

Hi Shannon

I did ask my friend if he had any information about the bonus material on these releases but he told me that the release dates were all he had at the moment. Though it said April and June as the months of release it did not state actual dates. As soon as prise any of this info from my friend I'll let you and other fans know.

Hi Marc

Thanks for sharing the good news with us. This is long overdue. I for one will be rushing out to buy these on the day of release. One thing though. Was there any sign that Secret Messages might be reissued with all the orginal tracks (Beatles Forever) in place. I've heard many times that this was supposed to be a double album. The current remaster is fine but really does lack those additional tracks.

That's a good question Darren. I'd love to see a reissue of Secret Messages with the missing songs in place too. Next time I see my friend I'll probe him about this and see what I can find out.

I think OOTB and BOP will be released in September.

But then again, I am slightly confused (no, actually, I am shocked), having read the following on www.musictap.net (dated 12 April 2006):

A bit of news as regards the planned upcoming ELO reissues. It appears that while No Answer and ELO II has been released, the next scheduled A New World Record, Face The Music, and On the Third Day, likely will not be released, at least this year. We'll keep you informed as new info becomes available.

Please tell me this isn't true. Anyone in the know? Has Rob said anything about a possible delay?

Thanks for the update mellodrone. It's been awhile since I have rediscovered my ELO roots due to (RLI) real life issues but since watching the ZOOM DVD, I have found myself drawn yet once again to the music of Jeff/ELO and have started on a music quest to repurchase my collection again. Yes I enjoy it that much LOL and am looking forword to the new tracks that may be released with the new issues. (humming... one summer dream while typing this by the way..lol :D )
