Yeah, I really like ''Helpless'' and ''Love changes all''.  It sounds very ''xanadu'', I think he wrote them in that period. But to speak about zoom, moment in paradise, state of mind, just for love, ordinary dream I like the most, these are very good songs I think. But you are right about the overproduction, I prefer that too


I really liked these two songs from "Flashback" as well. Thought they sounded a bit more like "the old ELO" than "Zoom". Don't get me wrong, I love "Zoom" as well. It's just not one of my favorite ELO albums. As someone else pointed out here; it has more of a Petty/Harrison/Wilbury feel than perhaps my favorite album:"Out of the Blue".


I'm curious how much of those songs were done in the early eighties and how much got finished for Flashback. I consider those songs some of Jeff's best work.


Yes, the Flashbook booklet is not very informative in that department. What I do know is that Richard Tandy were heavily involved in those re-workings.  I wonder if they used Bev's original drums for instance. Lots of question marks surrounding these songs!

I agree, great songs. I wish that Zoom would have sounded a bit like those two songs!

Does anyone have any information about an ELO video clip done to promote Balance of Power in 1986, that has Jeff and Bev talking to a Scandinavian guy who states he's from outer space?

I believe this interview was done for a TV network in Europe but don't have any details behind it. Anyone who knows anything about it, please share what you know.




This is from an interview with Pat Sharp (an English guy) on the BSB satellite system (later merged with SKY). The "Calling America" video was also shown on the TV-show.
