Out of the blue and on my turntable
Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2017
This 2016 SONY/Epic release of the double 180 gram vinyl LP from ELO has amazingly quiet playing surface and deeper bass than my original record. The gate-fold cover artwork is crisp with brilliant color saturation. Additionally, the album includes the card-stock inner sleeves with the lyrics and a double sided poster, which originally was printed on one side and folded in half. Missing is the ELO broadcast tower cut-out sheet, but given the improvement in sound and beautiful packaging, I'm not going to quibble about this. A fantastic sounding album from an iconic group. Even if you're getting the double picture disc version coming out in November, 2017, you may want to consider getting this black vinyl edition too. Fantastic!
