Review: Record Collection EP (David Myhr)

#707: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) featured artiste David Myhr releases the follow-up to his astounding album "Soundshine" today (Monday 5th May) with the impressive five track digital EP (including lyric video) "Record Collection" (LoJinx #LJX078). Three of the trax also feature Japanese artiste Puffy and the whole EP would indeed be an impressive addition to the "Record Collection" of most folks.

"Record Collection" kicks off with the title track (originally released on the Japanese edition of "Soundshine") and a classic piece of perfect power pop, complete with trademark Lynnesque layered backing vocals, it is too. Next up is a brand new song entitled "You Stole My Heart Away". Another top quality high tempo foot tapper! Track three is "Boom Boom Beat" - another superb guitar driven rocker from that expanded Japanese release. "The Things We Do For Love" was David's fantastic contribution to last years "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock" tribute album and is, of course, a cover of the 10cc classic - par excellence! Last, but not least, sees the famed Abbey Road version of "Never Mine", a truly Beatlesque take of one of the strongest trax from "Soundshine". Any fan of ELO, The Beatles and Power Pop in general will have good reason to love this EP! (9/10)

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 05-May-2014
