#1,012: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Having entered the Official UK Midweek Album Chart at #3, the new Jeff Lynne's ELO album "Alone In The Universe" has been confirmed this evening as a new entry at #4 in the Official UK Album Chart - the highest album chart position for the Electric Light Orchestra since "Secret Messages" back in June 1983.
The impressive gatefold vinyl edition of AITU has also entered the Official Vinyl Albums Chart Top 40 at #1 too! And it's a triple celebration for the ELO maestro with the best-selling 2005 compilation "All Over The World" also confirmed as rising from #99 to #28 in the last week.
It looks like the intensive promotion campaign of interviews and live performances has paid dividends for Jeff Lynne's ELO as well as inspiring the addition of three  extra dates for the much anticipated [and now sold out] "Alone In The Universe" UK and European tour during April, May and June 2016.
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends "Alone In The Universe" by Jeff Lynne's ELO to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 20-Nov-2015
