#523: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Last Friday 5th April saw the release of "Songs After Sandy - Volume 1" - the first of three  download releases in aid of the victims of Hurricane Sandy in Red Hook, NYC. Of special interest to fans of ELO & Jeff Lynne will be track #12 where there is a "Brand New Electric Version" of "Save Me Now" to listen to. The track is just 1:52 in length with additional percussion and keyboards giving the song a little more sophistication.
The recording features fifteen  tracks including a live version of "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh [featuring Ringo Starr on drums] recorded at The Troubadour last year as well as a live recording of "Wings" by Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band in Atlanta, also during 2012. At the time of writing, you can still pledge and order this release in aid of a very worthy cause thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends Songs After Sandy: Friends of Red Hook for Sandy Relief to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 09-Apr-2013
