Electric Light Orchestra Face The Music on 180g LP
By any standard whatsoever, Electric Light Orchestra is one of the most remarkable success stories in rock history. Consider just the facts: ELO has sold over 50 million records worldwide, and continues to be a remarkably popular catalog. Between 1972 and 1986 Jeff Lynne wrote and produced twenty six Top 40 hits in the UK and twenty in the US, including twenty Top 20 smashes in the UK and 15 in the US. With ELO, Lynne brought the world a different sound that remains modern, relevant and influential to this very day.
1975's Face The Music firmly established Lynne's trademark ELO sound for once and for all and served as the project's first-ever platinum album thanks to the classic Top 10 single "Evil Woman" plus catalog favorites like "Strange Magic" and "Nightrider." Face The Music also saw the band move away from an overall concept for the first time albeit with their signature immaculate production, sweeping arrangements and hook-laden songs as prominent and fully realized as ever.
