  1. Sorry, but having unwittingly purchased the soundtrack (whose only external disclaimer is that "This package contains previously released material" - a no brainer as it takes place in the 70's!) I don't recommend it as "10538 Overture" is not the brilliant original by Jeff, Roy & Bev. It's a very mediocre Jeff from his 2012 attempt to re-work ELO's best hits solely in his lone image. Hang onto your money and your original ELO catalogues, folks!
