  1. Iain has real talent, but I was really pissed off with the fact that during Jeff's "comeback gigs " he handed too much of the lead vocals over to Iain, and while Iain does have a good voice, he ain't no Jeff !!! I also feel and this is my OWN HONEST OPINION the album From Out of Nowhere was the laziest album he's ever made, he himself said Balance of Power was a rushed album to finish his contract, but comparing the two I prefer BOP it's far superior to FOON, the first time I listened to it in full, the track Time of our lives I physically cringed, the lyrics are what a child could have written, like I say just my opinion.

    1. Stella ... In all honesty, looking back now in Yours Truly 2021, I do feel that BoP (especially the expanded issue) is superior to AITU & FOON. Maybe I need to give 'em another play or three but that's what I'm thinking today ... KJS@ELOBF

  2. I actually know of Graham from his work on Animalympics. Someone I used to talk to on YT sent me a song from there (back when such a thing could be done). Interesting to see a connection to ELO (even if a very distant one).
