3  ELOFANS.COM / Jeff Lynne and ELO / 'Out Of The Blue' and 'Balance Of Power' Remastered Editions on: Feb 25, 2007, 03:22
On Thursday I received 'Balance Of Power' and 'Out Of The Blue' standard edition and special edition. I also received the 'Out Of The Blue' poster a day earlier. three postcards were also included to mark these releases which is nice addition.

Poster looks great if only it was a bit bigger but still a cool item to have on you wall or as a keep sake.

BOP features an incredible 7 bonus tracks (now that's more like it!)
One of the first thing I noticed about Balance of Power was the back cover being a decidedly greenish lime coloured yellow! The 'L' on the front is also of that colour. Whether this is a one-off printing glitch, I'm unsure. It's not yellow like it should be and so looks rather off putting. I'm hoping it is a one-off. I'd be interested to know if anyone else has ordered these CDs through FTM and received BOP with the dodgy greeny yellow colour.

The special edition of 'Out Of The Blue' is lavishly packaged to a high standard and looks great! The inclusion of the original model spaceship is a nice touch. I have to say I?m very please with this edition but a bit disappointed it only features 3 bonus tracks, one of which is only 24 seconds long? Why Jeff thought this would be worth putting in is baffling as I?m sure he has plenty more demos, outtakes etc in that vault of his! Considering this particular album is thought of as one of ELO?s finest albums and probably most well known, it seems really odd it only features a 3 bonus tracks. I had it in mind it could perhaps feature an additional disc of outtakes and demos etc. Now that would have been something!

The Special edition of OTTB has the CD stored within a sleeve like pocket which I find rather tight and because of this, it?s hard to get the CD out without really pulling at it, resulting in marks or fingerprints. I?ll probably use the standard edition to listen to.

I wonder if the previous remastered editions of ?Time?, ?Secret Messages?, ?Discovery? and ?Eldorado? will be given a re-release to match the quality of these superb and much welcomed editions since they look inconsistent with these new releases.[/quote]

I second that! But no disrepect to Kelly, I just prefer Jeffs better. Jeff and Kelly work well in harmonies. But Jeff works equally well doing his own harmonies too.

7  ELOFANS.COM / Jeff Lynne and ELO / ZOOM on: Jan 25, 2007, 11:45
Zoom is a good album but  didn't think much of it at first to be honest. But it has grown on m e with each listen. Not in my opinion an ELO just a failed cash on reviving the name. No disrespect to ELO or Jeff Lynne for that matter (he's a genius), but this should 've been a Jeff Lynne album not an ELO album. Then again ELO was really Jeff Lynne!

I have an original 2 disc release of this and it's signed by the complete ELO Part II band. I can't remember where I was when I got it signed!

Waterfall is such a beautiful song, and the instrumental version on the recent remastered version is superb!
11  ELOFANS.COM / Jeff Lynne and ELO / RE: Release Date of Remasters on: Jan 17, 2007, 12:58
Yeh, I can't wait either! Though I'm a bit disapointed with OOTB only having 3 bonus tracks and one only lasting a minute or so ( I can't remember the exact timing) BOP looks amazing and can't wait to here Heaven Only Knows alternate. I'm lead to believe that there was an alternate verse with Calling America, but this seems to have gone unnoticed.

Hi there! I may be able to help you out here. I have a book full of many ELO tunes with chords but no tab though. If this is of help let me know. I dabble in acoustic guitar so I like to practise on sum ELO tunes now and again.

Definitley the peek of ELO creativity I'd say if it weren't for the fantastic Time album.
14  ELOFANS.COM / Jeff Lynne and ELO / What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included) on: Jan 17, 2007, 12:49
Balance Of Power is a really good album for its time and I think is underappreciated. I read Jeff actually likes this album and rates it as one of favourites!
