Biography

Biographyby Jason Ankeny

The Electric Light Orchestra's ambitious yet irresistible fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and futuristic iconography rocketed the group to massive commercial success throughout the 1970s. ELO was formed in Birmingham, England in the autumn of 1970 from the ashes of the eccentric art-pop combo the Move, reuniting frontman Roy Wood with ... Read more in Amazon's E.L.O. Store

Format: Audio CD
This album,the only official live recording of the band from their early years,perfectly captures the concert atmosphere.The eclectic repetoire featuring such rock'n'roll classics as Great Balls of Fire and Roll Over Beethoven should convert the sceptics as to the artistic merits of Jeff and the boys.When these guys let rip they really let rip. Forget backing tapes,silly props and laser shows,murky sound and overdubs.This CD is pure energy.As well as a few nods in the direction of their classical music aspirations the highlight of the set is a barnstorming version of The Beatles' Daytripper.It redefines the song and clarifies at least one lyrical anomaly(The girl isn't apparently a "big" teaser after all). It's a shame that Epic couldn't have found some additional material to extend the disc's running time but this is only quibble worth mentioning. Sit back,play LOUD and enjoy.Bon apetit

Perhaps it was the lack of a soundcheck and all the mishaps that occured on the way, but ELO has never sounded quite this fired up before or since. The only complaint is the lack of bonus tracks (even if they were of inferior quality). Surely there is more out there from the original master tapes besides what was presented on the original vinyl version.
The SMB system has been used here and the album benefits from it. This CD has better dynamic range and sharper sound than any previous editions.

"Longbeach", the only officially released live recording of the band in concert has finally found it's way to the rest of the world. Originally just released in Australia, South Africa and Germanty I believe, it demonstrates ELO's ability to create music from music. Winterland '76, Wembley '78 as well as BBC recordings are now available but none of them quite match this album for the pure exitement of hearing versions of ELO's own music as well as the likes of The Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis and Mr Grieg himself. He would surely have appreciated the modernised verion of his norwegian classic. The line up at the time of Lynne, Bevan, McDowell, D'Alberquerque, Tandy, Edwards and Kaminski was one of the best around and though some may not agree, the overall sound of the band that Lynne was in the process of generating and developing is already starting to come through in each track. Even if you are not really a fan of ELO's distinctive sound, if you only buy one live album in your own lifetime try and make sure it's this one.

For years, “The Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach)” was the only officially released live album available from The Electric Light Orchestra. Naturally, like any other popular band, there were (and still are) unofficial albums and bootlegs available, but, rather strangely, despite a hugely successful concert captured on film and subsequently released on video (“Live At Wembley 1978”), Jeff shied away from any further live releases. This gig, recorded in Long Beach, California, USA on 12th May, 1974 (not long after the band had started to record their fourth studio album, “Eldorado”), received an initial, limited release at the time in Germany and a few other countries, but the poor sound, which came from an unfinished rough mix being used on the master, meant that a wider release was shelved for a number of years. It was only in 1985 when Epic were looking at re-releasing the long-deleted album on vinyl and cassette did they discover and use the originally intended mix and a version worthy of the original performance finally saw the light of day. Subsequently, when it was remastered for CD for a 1998 release, ELO fans were finally able to own a great-sounding digital representation of that electrifying night in Long Beach. The re-issues also saw a more professional looking, brighter cover replacing a rather ugly design which wouldn't have seemed out of place advertising a horror B-movie.

The original Long Beach gig showcased ELO's third studio album, “On The Third Day”, but the concert was heavily edited for the live record.

Took me back to the happiest time of my life. Wonderful music. I actually drove past Roy Wood's house when I was listening to it. I know he wasn't with the band when this was recorded, but 10538 Overture reminded me of his vocals on the original recording. Just a coincidence I happened to be driving past. Daybreaker was amazing and Hall of the Mountain King as good as I remember. A really good CD, but that's my opinion. Biased? Oh yes....

If you love early ELO, like me, you'll love this excellent live album. There is an energy on stage that puts this live album up with the best.

This album is a bit of a mixture. It is early ELO with a lot of excitement and energy but neither the polished pop songs that Jeff Lynne would later write or the orchestral sound that you will hear on the studio albums. That said, if you definitely like ELO and especially if you like the sound of the first three albums, you will enjoy what you hear here.
