Jeff Lynne's ELO Hold On Tight to Top Chart Slot

#977: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! To further underline the amazing success of the DVD and Blu-ray release of their "Live In Hyde Park" concert, Jeff Lynne's ELO have retained their #1 position at the summit of the Official Music UK Video Top 50 Chart. Hence, with a new album set to be unveiled via Columbia Records soon as well as those much anticipated first tour dates in thirty (30) years and another appearance on BBC Radio 2 later this week, the ELO maestro continues to be "sailing away on a crest of a wave" in terms of popularity.
Another Chart Breaks: #3 in the US Billboard Music Video Chart too!
So here's to the very real possibility of a first UK (and hopefully worldwide) Number One album for ELO since 1981's "Time" and hopefully some very spectacular Electric Light fantastic concerts in the days and weeks ahead! We shall find out a little more in just under three days ...

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 22-Sep-2015


  1. Also No 3 in US Billboard chart..


  2. I noticed that in the general video top 100 chart, Live at Hyde Park was number 85 last week, but dropped off that chart this week.
