Here Is The News #7

#257: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! It's been a busy week here at ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) with much ELOBF related activity going on out there!

Hot on the heels of last months visit to The Cavern in Liverpool to see Beatles Blues & Blue Violin Project (BBBV), it seems there has been an ELOBF flavour to the first week of October. There were those two gigs last weekend by The ELO Experience and The Trevor Burton Band. I've also received my copy of "Out Of This World" by Bubble Gum Orchestra (BGO). On top of that, I've rediscovered "Symphonic Beatles" as recorded by Louis Clark and the RPO (1999) from my CD collection whilst also hearing from Pete Dicks via his Beatles and Beyond internet radio show about the charity album "LovePower and Peace" which features Robin George and Pete Haycock. There's also been time to recommend that fantastic local Paul McCartney tribute band Band On The Runn and receive my long awaited copy of that great 1984 album by Julian Lennon entitled "Valotte" which (to my surprise!) features our very own "Honest Man" Eric Troyer. Add to that an appeal towards a new film about Chicago guitarist Terry Kath (highlighted by Laura Lynne for her friend Michelle Kath Sinclair's project) and you can see that it's been a full and varied week!

Those links and ties between ELO and The Beatles really do run deep folks so ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) is indeed quite apt a name! Feel free to peruse this weeks articles thus:
