Mr. Blue Sky–The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra is a powerful new testament to Jeff Lynne’s enduring artistry and his singular desire to get things right once and for all.
Here Lynne has artfully revisited and re-recorded the greatest hits of Electric Light Orchestra, and actually improved on some of the most classic and beloved recordings ever.
The result is, in effect, a kind of showdown between Jeff Lynne today and his extremely illustrious past, and thanks to improved technology and recording artistry, wouldn’t you know Lynne somehow comes out on top again.
So too do all of us who get another fresh chance to hear these extraordinary songs sounding quite literally better than they ever have before.
