A beautiful copy of an album that’s surprisingly hard to find complete.
Background: Released in 1977, Out of the Blue was the seventh studio album by the Electric Light Orchestra.
The album reached #4 on both the U.S. and UK charts.
The last ELO album to make a major impact on popular music, … And well more than half is very solid, at least as songs, if not necessarily as recordings. “Sweet Talkin’ Woman” (which is a worthy successor to the previous album’s “Livin’ Thing”) and “Turn to Stone,” are among the best songs in the group’s output. And much of the rest is very entertaining — “Across the Border” sounds like what would result if the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” and the Beach Boys’ Heroes and Villains” had somehow produced an offspring, with some synthesizer digressions and phased drumming typical of mid- to late-’70’s progressive rock.
