1 in stock


Offered for sale is an original German pressing of the second album by the Electric Light Orchestra – ELO 2.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale here is an original German pressing on the Harvest label, with a different cover from the American pressing.  It also has dramatically better sound; the U.S. pressing is one of the worst-sounding records we’ve ever heard.  This one sounds terrific.

The record is M-; aside from a couple of minor spindle marks on the label, it’s nearly perfect.  The slick, laminated cover is VG+, with bits of wear at the corners and a hint of ringwear on the back.

A great sounding copy of a fine album with a terrific cover.

Background: The Electric Light Orchestra’s first two albums are nice examples of ambitious progressive rock, with lengthy songs and serious, if occasionally pretentious, lyrics.  Unlike the first album, the second one featured a song that hit the charts in the U.S.  Roll Over Beethoven many not have been typical of the album as a whole, but it sold records and got the band some much-needed airplay.
