|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 main 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:
