Fun rewind to the ELO years
Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2016
Fantastic CD with most of their greatest hits. I love jamming to this in my Jeep but my husband just doesn't understand why I like them. I grew up listening and "they have a great beat that you can dance to, Dick".
Jeff Lynne and company were my first introduction to synths and electronic music, though they do not fall into this category. Even though the group was huge during the disco era, they are one of the few groups from this period to stand the test of time and keep making records.
They still perform, and put on an excellent how. If you are an ELO fan, you will enjoy this collection. This CD even inspired me to order much of their back catalog. I can't play any of it on my radio stations, but it's just so much fun to listen to. The songs sound very upbeat, even when the subject matter they discuss is not so happy.
"Last Train to London" is not among these, but perhaps that tune is not a "great hit". Still, I would have liked to see it included.
