Seventies classic pop band ELO had always used state-of-the-art production techniques on their records, and their 1978 tour gave them a chance to match the pristine sounds with equally impressive visuals. This DVD features highlights from their Wembley Arena show, which saw singer Jeff Lynne and his muso friends running through their greatest hits on a spectacular space-age set. Also features their 1979 album 'Discovery'.

The dvd is decent quality if not spectacular because of its age. Strangely, three of the 'live' songs have sound directly from the album which is quite disappointing ('Standing in the Rain', 'Sweet Talking Woman' and 'Turn To Stone'). In fact the only live bit on 'Turn To Stone' is a bit of jangly guitar over the top of it; surely ELO didn't mime?!?
All the rest of the tracks are live and sound pretty good so why they or the sound engineers did that is beyond me.
The show is great, with the highlight being 'Roll Over Beethoven' where the cellists, Hugh McDowell and Melvyn Gale, leap around like mad things.
The 'Discovery' special feature is basically a video for each of the nine tracks on Discovery which is kind of cool, particularly if it's your favourite ELO album, as it is mine.
All in all, this is a pretty good souvenir of a great band in full flight, it's not up to modern dvd standards in terms of sound or picture, unlike 'Zoom', but to see ELO when they really were a band makes up for it, especially at this price.
Out of the Blue Live: Standing in the Rain, Night in the City, Turn To Stone, Tightrope, Telephone Line, Rockaria, Wild West Hero, Showdown, Sweet Talkin' Woman, Mr. Blue Sky, Do Ya, Livin' Thing, Roll Over Beethoven
Discovery Videos: Shine A Little Love, Confusion, Need Her Love, Diary of Horace Wimp, Last Train To London, Midnight Blue, On The Run, Wishing, Don't Bring Me Down.

I enjoyed watching this reminder of the band as they were when they were my favourite artists. As the previous reviewer stated, some of the music does not sound live whereas the sound quality of Rockaria is very poor.

Also: 150 minutes? The Out of the Blue concert is about 65 minutes, including meeting the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Tony Curtis. Discovery is about 40 minutes. Maybe its a typo for 105 minutes! Still, I got it for £7 so it's good value and worth getting.

The concert itself was from way back in 1978, however this is very good stuff. Boasting their entire classic line up, the band really deliver the goods here. 13 tracks including 9 singles, no less. The other four tracks are also well known. I am not over the moon about some the filming effects, but this apart, the vocals are super and music quality is the same.

An amazing bonus is the whole of the Discovery Album. Available at a good price, this is unmissable for any fan of the band.

All the great hits on one dvd. A brilliant show and without a doubt it has turned out to be one of my favourite music dvds. Thank's Zoverstocks for another faultless used dvd supply

In my opinion this is the best group I have heard, I have followed them for years they where years ahead of their time and still sounds great now.

Altough I knew this dvd is from the 70's I did not realize the bad quality of the sound and video. I really love them and saw already many clips and films, but I still expected somewhat more.

Received my order in incredibly quick time, that part of the ordering process still amazes me. The quality and packaging of the product is of a very high standard, and play back of the event that took place in 1978 together with the bonus Discovery album is of a high standard, both visually and sound wise. All n all a great examination of one of the greatest bands of all time.

By Jamie Crampton VINE VOICE on 13 Oct. 2014
Loved it, especially with the addition of the Discovery videos. Only quibbles - it's a bit short for a live gig (60 minutes) and the sound and vision quality isn't the best, but for something that's 35 + years old it's definitely watchable at the very least 😄
