  1. You never bring this up, so I'll ask now. Please reply.

    What VERSION of the albums are those? Which master? Sound matters, a LOT, and as far as I'm aware, the late 80s/early 90s CD releases sound the best. If this is a NEW remaster, one can give this a try.

    1. HiYa! These are the former Frontiers releases issued digitally earlier in '18. I will try to confirm their source ASAP. KJS@elobf

  2. How the hell is this article offensive? I've read it three times and haven't found ANYTHING that offended me.....Was thinking i'd see ''Jeff Lynne is a bastard....'' Nothing. Your trolls are indeed venomous imbeciles.

  3. I refer to my tweet of a few moments a go! You're great, Keith, ignore (or block) the trolls. Everyone else here loves the blog and thinks you're terrific!
