New ELO Part II & Orchestra Compilation

#65: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! On sale during the upcoming Autumn "Greatest Hits" tour by The Orchestra (former members of ELO & ELO Part II) will be a long overdue 2CD compilation featuring ELO Part II and The Orchestra.

It's not clear as to whether the album will be available just at gigs and/or via the internet but it does look like a decent overview of ELO's post-Jeff Lynne career. There are tracks from all four ELO Part II albums as well as The Orchestra's "No Rewind" plus other more recent live recordings and Kelly Groucutt's last studio recordings with The Orchestra for a Russian TV show.
And there's another good reason to go see The Orchestra live in '09: a new set list! Yours Truly KJS also wonders whether we will ever hear the likes of "Honest Men" live again ...

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 01-Oct-2009
