question E.L.O. Albums 1971-1979
« Thread started on: Mar 3rd, 2014, 07:57am »

As I am currently rediscovering E.L.O., I thought I'd start this poll. Technically I shouldn't vote myself as I don't really know the first 3 albums very well. I think the story of how the debut album got its US name of No Answer is hilarious. grin The run from Eldorado to Out Of The Blue is excellent and my vote goes to Out Of The Blue. I have a soft spot for that album as it is one of the first "serious" albums I really liked. smiley

Sorry I was not much into E.L.O. , However, I did like a few of their hits at the time . Some of my friends loved this band when I was growing up, so I did listen to some of the albums. I cannot comment today though how I feel but my direction is to listen and discover other bands instead! smiley

Good luck with this poll! wink

I own all their studio albums up to Secret Messages (I don't see any reason to get the last two at the moment) but I still haven't heard them enough, so I haven't yet chosen a favourite. undecided

They were among my first favourite bands as a youth.
A New World Record was my introduction to them. I still have very fond feelings for that one but my favourite is Face The Music.

I like all their albums from the debut up to and including OotB.
Not too keen on anything that followed.

Thanks for this.

As probably the world's No.1 ELO fan, this poll is right up my street grin

Problem is deciding which one I like the most.....

OTTD, Eldorado, NWR, OOTB, Discovery and Time all tie at number 1 as I could listen to any of them from beginning to end without skipping a track....well, except I would stop at Hold On Tight which is the last track on Time.

But if I was forced to choose one for a desert island disk, I would probably take On The Third Day as that was the first tour I saw them performing and was blown away forever.

For info, the first three albums are very prog rock (just in case there are any prog fans on this board)... wink

Glad you like it. smiley I left out Time (and the other albums that followed) because conforums.com polls only allow 8 choices. It also seemed convenient to stick to the 1970s.

No probs. Any ELO mention is fine by me.

I stuck with them until Secret Messages when it was wearing a bit thin. Time means a lot to me as it was the last tour I saw them perform at NEC Birmingham. Sadly they had ditched the cellos by then and used two additional keyboards players (one of whom was Louis Clark).

Here is early ELO in Prog mode live (shortened) rendition of Ocean Breakup/King Of The Universe at Brunel University.

Livin' Thing is from 1976's A New World Record album and Mr. Blue Sky is from 1977's Out Of The Blue album. smiley

I remember one or two of my school friends had "Out of the Blue" so it must be popular!

As for Livin' Thing - that song used to scare me when I was little!! shocked shocked - Although it is one of my faves now! Funny how songs make you react! smiley
