I am proud to have all these rare LP`s
The main album, tracks 1-9 on the cd are from the 2001 remaster "Electric Light Orchestra/First Light" 30th anniversary series. The bonus tracks, remastered in 2006 can be found on "The Harvest Years 1970-1973" which also contains the main album tracks as well as the complete ELO II album and a third disc with the Quad mix of the first album SQ encoded on cd (very basically if your amp can be set to play cd audio via a Dolby processor, you can sort of hear the Quad mix pretty much the same as the 5.1 Dolby mix included with this new edition). Many hardcore fans are not happy with Peter Mew's work on these remasters but they sound pretty good to me. If you haven't bought either of the previously released titles of which only "The Harvest Years" is still in print, this 40th Anniversary release is good value for you.
So for ELO collectors there's nothing new here on cd. The attraction obviously is the dvd, specifically the 4.Read more ›
Harvest still one of the coolest looking labels have done us proud with this 40th anniversary edition, two discs a CD which contains the whole album plus 6 bonus tracks all of which have been released before on the 30th anniversary First light edition and a later compilation. Two versions of the '10538 overture' (Move version and a version for Top of the Pops Post Roy Wood with some slightly different instrumentation) Two versions of 'Mr Radio' and alternate takes of 'Nellie takes her Bow' and 'Whisper in the night'.
What makes this release worth the money is the second disc a DVD, which has a DTS 96/24 and Dolby digital transfer of the original Quad Mix very discrete and and giving at times a radical remix of the album, not afraid to spread the instrumentation around the sound field, 'Mr radio' and 'Queen of the hours' almost sound like a different takes. Even 'The Battle of Marston Moor' sounds great and seems to make more sense. I am a succour of Vintage Quad mixes and this one does not disappoint.
Also for fans of the stereo mix you get a flat 96/24 LPCM transfer of the original Stereo master. This has never sounded better.
Finally some visual content in the form of the promo video of '10538 Overture'.
Fans of wondering why buy this album again don't think just buy it if you have a surround sound system then this really is a no brainer.
Recommended if you like ELO or want to learn how they sounded in their earlier days; this isn't their best but it does stand up to repeated listening... you can almost be on Marston Moor...

ELO's first album neatly shows how they bridged that gap between The Move and the world-class act that was to come later. Great songs, raw production - just great!Published on 28 Mar. 2014 by J. Wickins
