Live at the Fillmore 1969
Review by Gary Hill
This is a cool live album. It’s got the Fillmore performance plus several songs from a different show and a short interview with Bev Bevan.

Looking On – 2 CD Expanded Edition
Review by Gary Hill
The Move were the band that came before Electric Light Orchestra. Quite literally, they transitioned into ELO.

Magnetic Waves of Sound: The Best of
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool release. Even if all you got was the CD, it would be worth having, but that's sort of just the beginning.

Message From The Country
Review by Gary Hill
I'll admit right off the top that I'm not one hundred percent sure about including this disc in the progressive rock section. Still, in the early days of prog (and this one is from 1971) there was a lot of ancillary weirdness that got lumped into the sound.

Shazam
Review by Gary Hill
This is a reissue of an album from The Move. This is pre-Jeff Lynne days.

Something Else from The Move
Review by Gary Hill
The original of this was a mono EP released in 1968. That’s presented in its remastered entirety at the end.

The Move
Review by Gary Hill
Let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat, this album itself is not prog rock.

Electric Light Orchestra - Discovery
Review by Gary Hill

Discovery really represented ELO's foray more fully into pop based music, and particularly disco. It wouldn't land under prog were it not for their previous catalog.

Review by John Pierpoint

This 1971 album was apparently entitled No Answer in the USA, although this was due to a misunderstanding between the band and the distributor.

Review by G. W. Hill

Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue
Review by Gary Hill

I know a lot of people dismiss ELO. Certainly their disco era had a lot to do with that. This disc was just at the edge of the start of that.

Electric Light Orchestra - The Essential Electric Light Orchestra
Review by Larry Toering

ELO is actually one of my favorite bands. Jeff Lynne is a master, so why not reach for the remasters when it comes to pound for pound quality?
