Background: Released in 1973, On the Third Day was the third album by the Electric Light Orchestra, and the first to not include founder Roy Wood as a band member.
The album reached #52 in the U.S., but did not chart in the UK.
Electric Light Orchestra’s third album showed a marked advancement, with a fuller, more cohesive sound from the band as a whole and major improvements in Jeff Lynne’s singing and songwriting. This is where the band took on its familiar sound, Lynne’s voice suddenly showing an attractive expressiveness reminiscent of John Lennon in his early solo years, and also sporting a convincing white British soulful quality that was utterly lacking earlier.
