This was a time of discovery - literally - for this writer as it also led to an appreciation also of the role of Roy Wood not only in the invention and foundation of ELO but also his amazing songwriting, musicianship and production for himself, The Move, Wizzard and beyond. If nothing else, the very many reissues and compilations issued by EMI/Harvest over the years covering the first light years of ELO cement the core trio of Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood and Bev Bevan in rock music folklore. And hidden in the background, somewhat underlining that early ELO promise, has been those aforementioned thrice released singles "Showdown" and "Roll Over Beethoven".
