Voldar: ѕисьмо с шоудауна,называетс€ прорыв,но € бы сказал - ƒжефф соедин€ющий .. эээ сердца. Subject: A breakthrough! Date: Mon, 15 Oct 2012 14:38:22 -0700 From: email@example.com As much as I love my wife, one of my biggest sorrows is that she cannot stand ELO. (And yet we've been married 25 years...imagine that!) I have been forced "into the closet" so to speak whenever I want to listen to my favorite band. [sigh] Well, the other night we had a breakthrough! As we were sitting down to supper, I decided to put on Long Wave. She didn't say a word about the music as "She" came to an end, and when "If I Loved You" finished playing, she looked at me and said, "Is this new ELO? I really LIKE IT!" Now, I'm smart enough to know when to keep my mouth shut and so if she thinks it's ELO, that's good enough for me! It was definitely a win for our team that night!

Voldar: –асширенный обзор альбомов в экзаминере. Jeff Lynne goes higher and higer, baby, with ELO Jeff Lynne hasnТt released anything new under the Electric Light Orchestra banner since 2001Тs Zoom. ItТs been twice as long since he issued an album under his own name. But with the release of two new covers albums from Frontiers Records, the perpetually sunglassed uber-producer (George Harrison, Tom Petty) is making up for lost time. The first disc, Long Wave, is a collection of standards, show tunes, and movie music dating from 1940-1965. LynneТs first proper solo album in twenty years finds the ex-Traveling Wilbury bringing his decades of studio experience to bear on vintage songs popularized eons ago by Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Etta James in a way that refreshes the material instead of ravaging it. The second, Mr. Blue Sky: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra, finds Lynne covering himself with retreads of a dozen classic ELO tracks. While itТs a little disingenuous to put a УBest OfФ stamp on a compilation full of previously unreleased versions of old songs, few will argue that selections like УDo Ya,Ф УTurn to Stone,Ф УDonТt Bring Me DownФ and УLivinТ ThingФ arenТt among the crème of ELOТs orchestra-rock crop. Named for the radio that transfixed Lynne as a kid, Long Wave (versus short wave) commences with a lilting acoustic guitar-based interpretation of Charles AznavourТs УShe.Ф Lynne references Elvis CostelloТs 1974 reading of the song, allowing the first verse to breathe before introducing drums and ornamental keys. Rodgers and HammersteinТs УIf I Loved YouФ continues in a similar vein, with Lynne decorating the Carousel cut with piano arpeggios and Beatle-esque orchestration. Lynne dabbles in country-folk on Don EverlyТs УSo Sad,Ф where gentle acoustic strumming and LynneТs trademark layered harmony vocals milk every ounce of melancholy. Bright electric guitar leads reply to every verse, creating a colorful dialogue between singer and instrument. Originally peformed by Don Covay and The Goodtimes in 1964, УMercy MercyФ boasts rat-a-tat backbeat and crackling lead guitar over LynneТs falsetto and handclaps. ItТs a fun salute to raucous, old-school rock and roll that offsets the quieter early tracks quite nicely. Lynne mimics departed Wilbury Roy Orbison on УRunning Scared,Ф adopting a woozy baritone for a bolero ballad about a boyfriend frightened off by a rival suitor. Faux strings and piano add drama and depth to the track, but itТs the start-stop staccato chords that infuse urgencyЧand uncertainty. УBewitched, Bothered, and BewilderedФ (from the 1940 musical Pal Joey) has been covered dozens of times over the years by some of the best voices in the businessЧCarly Simon, Doris Day, Linda Ronstadt, Rod Stewart among themЧbut Lynne gives the Уsimpering, whimpering, child againФ show tune a restrained, vulnerable voice whose sincerity convinces well enough. He pulls of a similar trick on УLove is a Many Splendored Thing,Ф but enlivens things with electric guitar slide and a quirky synth solo. ELO meets Charlie Chaplin on УSmile,Ф (the theme from the 1936 Little Tramp misadventure Modern Times) whose worded incarnation became a hit for Sammy Davis, Jr., Tony Bennett, and others. Lynne belts the lead vocal on Orchestra Wives standard УAt Last,Ф (and he must, if heТs to compete with previous recordings by chanteuses and songbirds like Celine Dion, Cyndi Lauper, and Beyonce) and damned if the orchestral valentine doesnТt work. Lynne gives a nod to Chuck Berry with УLet It Rock,Ф (whose Bill Haley twelve-bar guitar boogie arrived two years after УJohnny B. GoodeФ) then closes out with balmy movie favorite (and TV commercial jingle) УBeyond the Sea,Ф wherein he employs guitars-as-horns to achieve a full, big band sound. Where Lynne takes a few chances on Long Wave, he opts for an if-it-ainТt-broke approach with Mr. Blue Sky, whose ELO recreations sound so much like the originals that casual listeners wonТt know the difference. УThe idea was to get them to sound better,Ф Lynne told Rolling Stone earlier this month. Hoping to recapture (if not reclaim) some of the magic made with Bev Bevan and Richard Tandy, Lynne revisits his old bandТs biggest hits using todayТs technology and his own considerable four decadesТ worth of experience in front ofЧand behindЧthe console. Stretching as far back as 1970 (У10538 Overture,Ф from Electric Light Orchestra) and ending in 1979 (УDonТt Bring Me Down,Ф from Discovery), Lynne proves heТs still got the Midas touch. Granted, ELO has always been something of a guilty pleasure for people, many of who immediately recognize УTurn to StoneФ or УDo YaФ on the car radio and sing alongЧbut donТt know itТs Jeff Lynne. The groupТs coupling of violins and cellos with arena rock drums and bass saw it unfairly lumped with the disco acts of the latter Seventies. But classic rock aficionados will tell you (as would LynneТs contemporaries) that the guy knows how to write and record irresistibly catchy pop-rock tunes, marinating the music in dense vocal harmonies, lush strings, and swirling synths. The credits for Mr. Blue Sky list Lynne as performing almost every instrument on the disc. Violins and cellos arenТt among these, so it stands to reason Lynne employed Marc Mann as his string-man and synthesizer surrogate this time out. УMr. Blue SkyФ still begins with the radio static of a weather forecast and features both the warbled vocoder speaking part and tink-tink-tink-tink percussion. УEvil WomanФ relegates LynneТs clear, jangly guitar to the left channel and clavinet-like keys to the right. His daughter, Laura, makes her first appearance here on background vocal, ably subbing for every female backup on every ELO LP. Lynne dips into Face the Music and Out of the Blue waters with УStrange MagicФ and УTurn to Stone.Ф The formerТs familiar plaintive intro guitar motif is louder and more resonant here, while the latter incorporates some nimble mini-Moog among the squeaky synth-strings. The electric guitar is much more prominent on УShowdown,Ф as is the pizzicato plucking of MannТs strings, and the low rumble of cello still plays nicely again LynneТs R & B groove. УDonТt Bring Me DownФ still contains that wonderfully inexplicable Grus! refrain amid LynneТs sandwiched high harmonies. New World Record hit УTelephone LineФ sends LynneТs heavenly harmonies wafting over billowy electric piano chords. The choir doesnТt sound quite as thick or trebly as on the Т77 recording, but that doo-wah-do-lang refrain has an infectious sweetness that doesnТt get old. That forlorn dial tone is intact, we swear we hear allusions to The BeatlesТ УHello, GoodbyeФ in the outro. An Arabesque violin flourish and faux French horn (or is it trumpet?) kick off УLivinТ ThingФ once again, only now LynneТs acoustic guitars are as audible and rhythm-centric as the strings. Daughter Laura chimes in with the donТt cha do it, donТt cha do it interlocutions, and Papa JeffТs echoey IТm taking a dive! pronouncement still pans from left to right. We never cared much for УCanТt Get It Out of My Head,Ф but the 1974 Eldorado cut is cloned accurately. Of greater note is LynneТs return to УDo Ya,Ф a jewel he penned with The Move but dusted off for a hit single in 1976. The guitars are huge here, triple-tracked and compressed for todayТs ears, and the percussion (cowbell and all) rings out uproariously as the strings reach their Never seen nothinТ like you crescendo. New track УPoint of No ReturnФ picks up right where Zoom left off and gives ELO fans who have everything something fresh to sing their teeth into. The song is textbook Lynne-as-ELO weaving George Harrison-like Gretsch guitars and pulsating bass together in a mid-tempo rocker that wouldЧin any other eraЧspend a few weeks climbing the Billboard charts. But just because a tune doesnТt cause a splash in todayТs Gaga-Bieber market doesnТt mean it isnТt good. On the contrary, thereТs a lot to be said for obscure, independent, gotta-look-for-it music in these talent-challenged times, even when the author isЧlike LynneЧa formidable force in the industry. ItТs almost a shame Lynne didnТt venture into ELOТs output from the Eighties. Perhaps he wasnТt as dissatisfied with longstanding versions of hits like УHold On Tight,Ф УCalling AmericaФ and УSo SeriousФ as with his earlier stuff. Still, whereТs the 2012 version of the seemingly obvious gem УSweet TalkinТ Woman?Ф WeТre convinced an update of 1975 instrumental УFire on HighФ would go gangbusters (sans the УRevolution 9Ф sound pastiche and back-masking). Still, this is a terrific pair of recordings. Ironically, the next time Lynne cuts a Greatest Hits disc (ELO has many) he could include his sleek, enthusiastic spins on УSo Sad,Ф УSmile,Ф and УMercy Mercy.Ф The English musician so thoroughly co-opts these (mostly) American tunes that they become his own. They fare well measured against anything in the ELO canon, and itТs to LynneТs credit that Long Wave effectively (re)introduces them to a younger generation. http://www.examiner.com/review/jeff-lynne-goes-higher-and-higer-baby-with-elo

Voldar: Ёто в смысле no satisfaction ?
Goldenday: ”же говорил ¬ладу, повторюсь здесь: заходил на выходных в " айлас" - наш магазинчик, торгующий пиратскими дисками и один из немногих, ещЄ держащийс€ на плаву. ѕачка сольников Ћинна лежала на прилавке ("¬ери Ѕест" не было). ѕолна€ книжка + бонус "Jody". ќднако, наши всЄ успевают: где надо и не надо.
Voldar: ¬от даже интересно,а дефект на ћЅ— наши пираты тоже воспроизвели? Ќа шоудауне народ заметил, что на Do Ya и 10538 примерно на 14-15 секунде в правом канале есть посторонний шум,то есть первый выпуск может стать раритетным сразу. Subject: MBS: Audio problem? Date: Fri, 12 Oct 2012 05:21:19 -0700 From: "Stuart Paterson" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Hi guys, I've noticed what sounds like some sort of audio defect on the new Mr. Blue Sky CD... Listening to the guitar intros of "Do Ya" and "10538", I hear noise on the right channel. On "Do Ya", it sounds like rattling, on "10538" it sounds like some sort of crackling. *Maybe* the sound on "Do Ya" is deliberate (but I'd be surprised), but on 10538 it sounds like random crackling.... no way that is intentional. Has anyone else noticed this? I have 2 copies of the CD (one I bought for me, one for my mom, and it's present on both of them). Out of curiousity, I downloaded a torrent of the CD off the net to check it out (yes, I know, it's not right to do that, but I bought two copies, and this was in the name of scientific research :) and the noise was on the downloaded version too (which I'm guessing was a CD rip.) So... anyone NOT have these "oddities" on their copies? ********** Subject: Re: MBS: Audio problem? Date: Fri, 12 Oct 2012 23:28:39 -0700 From: "van Ek, Marcel" <email@example.com> Stuart, yes on 10538 it's on the .14 and .15 sec mark right channel. Must say I had not noticed before. Didn't notice anything odd on Do Ya, but I'm at the office, using the laptop with less than proper headphones, so need to do the check at home. But 10538 : yes I'm afraid so. Marcel Netherlands ********** Subject: Re: MBS: Audio problem? Date: Sat, 13 Oct 2012 01:31:45 -0700 From: Guido Beijderwellen <Guido@Beijderwellen.com> Hey Stuart, I heard the same noise on my versions as well. I first thought it was digital overdub or caused by the fact that I was having my stereo to loud. But after I checked the CD's itself on another HiFi set I noticed the same and without having the CD loud. And also only in the right channel, and exactly on both songs on the intro, but also every now and then mainly when the guitars "light up"... Now I'm not the only one that is hearing it, I know I'm not getting mentally retarded or my hearing is going down the line! Should we ask Jeff to redo the songs? And when he is at it, can you also please ask him to put in the correct full ending of Mr Blue Sky ?? That would be great!! ;-))) The rest is fine, no changes required. Now I'm going to get the Japanese CD's and LP's maybe they are better????

Voldar: ≈щЄ один обзорчик из солидного журнала. Album Review: Jeff Lynne Ц Long Wave and Mr. Blue Sky Ц The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra By Sarah Grant on October 29th, 2012 in Album Reviews Every avowed Beatles fan rues and revels in the day when he or she turns 64, and Jeff Lynne is no different. The master wall-of-sounder turned 64 this year and released a double album (one of ELO hits and one of covers). He raises the question: Do we still need him? Will we still feed him? Of course we need you, Mr. Lynne. Who else can deliver a line like Уyou took my body and played to winФ with such boyish charm? Rod Stewart? As the song goes: УHa, ha.Ф УEvil WomanФ is one of 11 beloved ELO songs that Lynne re-recorded in his studio in Los Angeles for Mr. Blue Sky Ц The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra. Given recording limitations of the 70s and 80s, Lynne thought the songs needed some retouching. So he went back and did all the instrumental and vocal parts himself. It will be exactly like when Beyonce re-records the DestinyТs Child catalogue due to certain limitations, such as all of the voices that are not hers. Whatever digital rosin Lynne is using these days seems to be working. УStrange MagicФ, УDonТt Bring Me DownФ, and УDo YaФ are just a few tracks that sound faster and fresher. But the real treat on the album is the previously unreleased, УPoint Of No ReturnФ. Its rollicking guitar lick and Уball-and-chainФ motif could have easily been on Tom PettyТs Full Moon Fever, which Lynne helped write, produce, and accompany twenty years ago. Although original material would have been welcome, Long Wave proves that every song can be an ELO song if it really tries hard enough. Even the deeply regal УAt LastФ sounds like it could be the B-side to УMr. Blue SkyФ. Lynne shed some electric light on artists that inspired him as a radio-head in Manchester, England, such as the Everly Brothers and Don Covay. Surprising pre-rock songs choices include УBewitched, Bothered and BewilderedФ and УLove Is A Many Splendoured Thing.Ф УSheФ has a УStrawberry Fields ForeverФ softness, while УRunning ScaredФ features Lynne doing an entertainingly accurate impression of the late, great Roy Orbison. 40-years into his rich musical career, itТs perfectly fine for Lynne to be taking stock Ч just as long as he doesnТt stop. Essential Tracks: УMercy, MercyФ, УRunning ScaredФ, УSo SadФ, УPoint Of No ReturnФ http://consequenceofsound.net/2012/10/album-review-jeff-lynne-long-wave-and-mr-blue-sky-the-very-best-of-electric-light-orchestra/
