I’m embarrassed to admit that until quite recently, the only Electric Light Orchestra song I knew was “Mr Blue Sky”, a.k.a. the song from that VW commercial a couple years ago. Boy, was I missing out! They have got to be one of the most underrated bands of all time. After some serious thought, I’ve decided that their five best records are:
2. Out Of The Blue
3. Time [Their 1981 concept album about time travel which has aged(!) surprisingly well… My current obsession.]
5. A New World Record
Do yourself a favor!
