Anyone here dig ELO ? This is one killer live version that IMO betters the original (from the EL DORADO) record). Check this out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLMcgAvuO_Y

ELO were a great band . And that is a good song . Very talented band .
They recorded many classics hits , Hold on Tight , Confusion , Don,t Bring Me Down , Livin Thing , Mr Blue Sky , and my own favourite Sweet Talkin Woman .
Jeff Lynne was an excellent writer/producer , i particulary liked his work with George Harrison and Tom Petty , pity we don,t hear more from him .
Here is another classic from ELO -

Thanks mate. Have you heard/seen "Secret Messages" 1983 official video. Also been trying to find "turn to Stone" video on YouTube in decent quality.

Yes I,ve seen it , it,s a good song and video .
I liked Balance of Power, which i think was their last album with the original members (till Zoom a few years ago ).
Calling America and So Serious were the singles on that album , They didn,t do so well nor the album for that matter .
But Lynne is hugely talented , he wrote and performed a huge amount of quality songs .
Nowadays i believe he mainly concentrates on production work , but there were rumours of a solo album this year ,

One of my favourite bands. He also did a lot to restore Roy Orbisons career at the end of Roy´s life. Imagine what he could have done for Elvis!
