Electric Light Orchestra The UK Singles Volume One 1972-1978 45rpm 7" Vinyl 16 Disc Box Set
45rpm 7" Vinyl 16 Disc Box Set!
15 Groundbreaking Singles + The ELO EP!
Sourced & Remastered From Original Analog Tapes!
The U.K. Singles Volume One: 1972-1978 presents ELO's early output of hits
and b-sides as originally experienced by the band's fans in their native UK.
This collector's box set features 15 groundbreaking 45 RPM singles plus 1978's
The ELO EP, each fully recreated from their original releases more than four
decades ago. All of the music on The U.K. Singles Volume One: 1972-1978 was remastered from
the analog source tapes while each of the 16 7" vinyl discs in the collection
features detailed reproductions of the original sleeves and labels from the
1970s. Nine of these singles–including "Roll Over Beethoven", "Evil Woman", "Livin'
Thing", "Telephone Line" and "Mr. Blue Sky"–reached the Top 10 of the British
charts and remain among the world's most enduring classic rock songs. On rock
radio and beyond, ELO's hits continue to permeate pop culture. In 2017, "Livin'
Thing" was featured in a widely-seen advertisement for Volkswagen while "Mr.
Blue Sky" underscored a pivotal scene in the Marvel Studios blockbuster
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.
Formed in Birmingham, England in 1970, ELO was designed to create progressive
modern pop music combining classical and rock elements wrapped in futurist
iconography. Jeff Lynne is ELO's guiding light and driving force, writing
virtually all of the group's original material while arranging and producing
their albums. From 1972 through 1986, ELO racked up more combined UK and US Top
40 hits than any other band on the planet while selling more than 50 million
records worldwide. During the same period, ELO scored twenty Top 20s on the UK
Singles Chart and fifteen Top 20s on the US Billboard Hot 100.
ELO was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 7, 2017.
