Jeff Lynne: Digital Return for Long Wave

#1,375: The news that Jeff Lynne's second solo album "Long Wave" is now available to stream and/or download again is, of course, welcome to fans of the ELO maestro. The CD (and its twin release "Mr. Blue Sky") has become increasingly rare on record shop shelves although imports and the 2013 Let Them Eat Vinyl gatefold LP release can still be located via eBay and other outlets.

Originally released through Frontiers Records under licence from Big Trilby Records, "Long Wave" in 2018 is now under exclusive license to Sony Music Entertainment via their Legacy Recordings label from Daft As A Brush, Inc. (alongside "Armchair Theatre") opening up the possibility of a future physical reissue for "Long Wave" via Sony Legacy from Jeff's brief tenure with Frontiers between 2012 and 2013 when a total of five albums were issued including "Live", "Armchair Theatre" and "Zoom" - not forgetting the unreleased trackxs on the "Down The Lane And Far Away" sampler. Keep your fingers crossed folks!
Under Exclusive Licence: From Big Trilby to Daft As A Brush

  1. ebay is selling extended versions of the tracks on down the road and far away cd have they got hold of the full tracks some unreleased or would these be artificially extended by seller????John

    1. Hello! I would imagine that if they really are extended versions they have been somehow 'obtained'. Most likely source would be a leak at Frontiers Records. There have been samplers doing the rounds for years and I doubt anyone would try artificially extending them. Hope this helps! KJS@elobf
