Recommended: LovePower and Peace (Robin George's LovePower)

#251: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good friend Pete Dicks - the producer, director, chief bottle washer and presenter of that excellent internet and AM/FM radio show Beatles & Beyond - has alerted me to a new charity album entitled "LovePower and Peace" which has just been released by Robin George's LovePower via Angel Air Records (#SJPCD357).

Robin is a former member of Roy Wood's Helicopters but what may also be of interest to ELO (and related artistes) fans is that this new CD features supreme slide guitarist and former ELO Part II co-founding member Pete Haycock. We haven't seen much of Pete in the ELO universe since his departure in 1993 but I thought that his participation in this project was of note to those of us who appreciated his input on both record and stage with that original ELO Part II line-up.

"LovePower and Peace" also features a variety of songs and artistes and includes a Beatles tribute song described as "a stonking cover of With A Little Help From My Friends" by the web site Sea Of Tranquility. The profits from this album will support the work of three charities: BCATHaven House and Wolverhampton's very own Compton Hospice"LovePower and Peace" by Robin George's LovePower can be ordered via these links thus:
ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends "LovePower and Peace" by Robin George's Lovepower to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 01-Oct-2011


  1. Thanks for that Keith - it's worth saying that BeatlesandBeyond also plays on RADIO too!

  2. As far as I know, Robin George once played the guitar with The Helicopters. It must be another ELO connection
