Vinyl Renaissance for ELO Part II Albums

#1,568: Fans and followers of both ELO and ELO Part II have been waiting a long time for one or either of ELO Part II's studio albums "Electric Light Orchestra Part Two" (1991) and "Moment of Truth" (1994) to be reissued hence the news that Renaissance Records are to re-release both albums on vinyl later this year in September and October respectively (Note: originally advised as August)  will be of immense interest and bring satisfying closure to many collectors.

It's now almost 30 years since "Electric Light Orchestra Part Two" was released by Telstar Records and matched the UK chart performance of "Zoom" in peaking at #34 and will return in a new gatefold sleeve. "Moment of Truth" followed three years later via Edel's Ultrapop imprint and heralded a returned to ELO's classic sweeping orchestral arrangements thanx, of course, to Louis Clark with this 2021 reissue also marking its long overdue debut on vinyl as a double album set. Both remastered albums will be released in limited edition 180g vinyl replete with trading cards, photos and lyrics et al. Further details including pre-ordering info will be announced shortly. In the meantime, KJS/elobf recommends that you visit the official Renaissance Records web site via these links thus:

  1. Looking forward to the release. Thanks KJS!

  2. I own both on CD, and that includes the single with the b-side. Happy for other people, but not myself.
