|Introducing the beautiful and talented Alex Miles ...|
A case in point would be Lily Allen's questionable effort to 'reinvent' MBS back in 2007. Now, earlier today my good Aussie friend Jib Khan [the man behind ELOBF recommended artiste Starflight], who alerted Yours Truly KJS to a truly wonderful piano laden interpretation of the Jeff Lynne penned classic by Alex Miles. In her own words:
"One of my favourite tracks ever, I recorded this version as a homage to the original. I was very careful in trying not to recreate the ELO version, as no cover version could ever surpass it. This is a different, acoustic take on a true masterpiece."
It reminds me a little of Sarah Blasko's serene 2009 version of "Xanadu" and it's so good that I felt it warranted some wider exposure to the ELO/Jeff Lynne fan base via ELOBF thus:
