TOP Rare Vinyl LP Electric Light Orchestra Discovery 79

 For your listening pleasure here are some
Really Unique and quite Rare LP Records from the 70's & 80's.

Electric Light Orchestra - Discovery

The last of ELO's classic trio of late-'70s releases,
after 1976's A NEW WORLD RECORD and 1977's OUT OF THE BLUE,

1979's DISCOVERY was also the group's last significant commercial success.

A bit more self-consciously experimental than the previous pair of ELO albums,
"The Diary of Horace Wimp" could have come from the pen of Jeff Lynne's more musically adventurous former musical partner Roy Wood.

The album also finds Lynne finally taking notice of the musical trends of the day.

The hyper-prominent snare pulse, keening violins, and scratchy guitar of the opening "Shine a Little Love"
marks this as ELO's disco song, though the Beatlesque harmonies of the bridge are unmistakably Lynne's.

The album's big hit, "Don't Bring Me Down," couldn't be called punk, or even new wave,
but the in-your-face arrangement and snarling vocals do at least betray some hint of the more aggressive new music.

Great Album!!!

Reviewer: CD Universe

This album comes from my personal collection (opps, now i have given my age away ;-])
my problem is that i no longer have a record player to play them!!!

If you love your 70s - 80's music as much as i do, just sit back and enjoy them...

and it won't be long till you'll be feeling that same old groove again,
and those great old memories will come flooding back...
