unless you are a fan you probably stopped listening to the ELO after Discovery. It's a shame really because they went on to do some great albums with terrific tunes and that's what you get here. It might not have the same deliciously overblown strings and orchestral pretensions as their earlier work but the tunes are as catchy as always. Go on, buy it. You'll love it.

Buy this CD and Volume 2 and you'll have all the ELO you need!
Jeff Lynne is a master of his craft.

This is Electric Light Orchestra at their best! Great "classics" and stuff you might be difficult to find elsewhere than on this very enjoyable compilation. Super item to a low cost!

Replacement for my original tapes which cannot be played in modern cars! Reminiscent of my early years when music was good.

There are any number of ELO Best Of/Greatest Hits collections and clearly Volume 2 can't contain the best of the best which are in Volume 1 and other 1 disc compilations.
The top song for me is Can't Get It Out My Head, maybe their best song ever.
Do Ya is OK, but so much of the remainder is disappointingly lacking in individuality.
No problems with the excellent production from Jeff Lynne and the boys, for me just not enough high quality tracks.

When announced we were told that this companion volume to the first All Over The World CD would mop up the hits that did'nt make it to the first volume. So what went wrong? This second volume is a real missed opportunity. What we have are some album tracks and bounus tracks from the recent remasters of Out Of The Blue and A New World Record. None of these were of course hits. BUT there are some very big ELO hits missing. The remaining ELO hits from the Xanadu soundtrack are missing (Xanadu - the original hit, Jeff Lynne's mankled version was put on volume 1, I'm Alive and Don't Walk Away)together with Here Is The News, Getting To The Point and many others. Quite why these have been left off is a mystery particularly the Xanadu songs which were all big hits. So it's best to avoid this and get the Flashback 3cd boxset (with unsurpassed remastered sound) and the 1998 Sony UK Xanadu CD soundtrack (remastered). with these 2 you'll have the complete picture of ELO's mighty 15 year reign.

Electric Light Orchestra have many compilations, this is a fine collection of their greatest hits to load this into your CD player and hit the Random button and drift off into an ELO world.
