Jeff Lynne: Ultimate Surprise in New Bryan Adams Package
#1,348: Occasionally we miss things here at elobeatlesforever (elobf) and it's right that we hold up our hands and acknowledge it. Whereas Yours Truly KJS has been mentioning in despatches the release of Bryan Adams' latest career overview "Ultimate" (Polydor #6711659) and its inclusion of the Jeff Lynne produced trax "Go Down Rockin'" and "You Belong To Me" from 2015's UK #2 album "Get Up" plus its impressive peak chart performance of #11 (at the time of writing), I failed to fully read the CD booklet credits for one of the two new songs: "Ultimate Love" (which has a real Tom Petty feel to it) and so only recently discovered that the ELO maestro plays piano on the track as well as mixing it alongside long time cohort Steve Jay in Los Angeles (doubtless at Bungalow Studios).
Being as this hit filled fest actually features three songs of interest to ELO/Jeff Lynne fans, it should therefore come as no surprise that elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends "Ultimate" by Bryan Adams to those enlightened folks who love ELO/Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes. Please Forgive Me for the oversight!
Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 04-Dec-2017
