#552: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! As we await confirmation of the first album of original Jeff Lynne material in late 2013; another album to be anticipated much this September will be BGO III - the as yet [officially untitled] third album from ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] endorsed Bubble Gum Orchestra [BGO] alias Michael Laine Hildebrandt and friends.
Yours Truly KJS has been privileged to hear a demo of one the songs from the forthcoming release - which will comprise eleven  original songs plus a short instrumental and a reprise of the opening track that ELO Beatles Forever has been told will be a "... big wall of sound ..." and I can tell you that BGO III [which will also have a longer running time than BGO II] is shaping up to be another superb album! The new album title [which I can confirm will again be another BGO nod to ELO], full track listing and formal release date will be announced officially via the official Bubble Gum Orchestra web site in the near future. Les Farrington of Sugarbomb fame also contributes on the track: "Lovely Days, Lovely Nights". While you wait for BGO III, why not check out my 2011 interview with Michael Laine Hildebrandt and my reviews for previous BGO albums "Out Of This World" and "BGO II" thus:
