Recommended: Anthology (Electric Light Orchestra Part II & The Orchestra)

#1,625: Our friends over at Renaissance Records have been especially busy this year when it comes to ELO Part II releases hence the news that another reissue is imminent should come as no surprise to many ELO (and related artistes) fans, followers and collectors.

Having already issued both of ELO Part II's studio albums ("Electric Light Orchestra Part Two", "Moment of Truth") in 2021 as well as Kelly Groucutt's excellent solo offering "Kelly" beforehand, the US label is putting out a new refresh of Anthology: Electric Light Orchestra Part II & The Orchestra (2CD) from Sunday 21st November. Originally sold during their 2009 UK tour featuring both studio and live recordings by ELO Part II and The Orchestra (former members of ELO & ELO Part II) of selected ELO/Part II/Orchestra songs, the 35 trax have been repackaged and (in part) remastered and produced by Eric Troyer for what is a somewhat belated official release.
Anthology now (2021) and Anthology then (2009)
Anthology: Electric Light Orchestra Part II & The Orchestra is priced at $22.99 and can be ordered via this link thus:
