The band / performance:
The Electric Light Orchestra were perhaps the first band that I ever obsessed over as a youth. My friend Victor
purchased ANWR upon its release in 1976. We were both hooked at that point in time. For me ELO was the greatest
band in the world, having been a bit too young to have The Beatles make a similar impression. I never had the
opportunity to see ELO perform live. "The Orchestra" is the latest incarnation of ELO Part II and sadly only
contains one "member" of ELO, violinist Mik Kaminski and contributor, conductor and string arranger, Louis Clark.
Sadly Kelly Groucutt passed away in 2009 and Bev Bevan left the band having sold his naming rights back to Jeff
Lynne in 2000 after a nearly 20 year fued. The Orchestra is what remains. Jeff has been rather reticent to tour
these days although his anouncement last month that he will perform as ELO in Hyde Park this summer (most likely
with long time collaborator and keyboardist Richard Tandy) seems promising. This band is excellent and relies
heavily upon it's 3 vocalists who trade lead vocal duties throughout. Not one of them sounds quite like Jeff (Huxley
is perhaps the closest). Still, when these guys harmonize they sound fantastic, IMHO.
My mics have been on their last legs for the past year having developed several shorts throughout the wire. I had my
friend cut out the line to eliminate the short between the mics and the battery box. I called up my pal, blg who kindly
dropped off his CA Ugly preamp on his way to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. I was set or so I thought. My levels on the
recorder were dialed. The recorder never peaks, but the recording is oversaturated and slightly distorted. Dynamic range
is not great. These are tell tale signs of the mics being under-powered by a weak battery (not the case) or too much gain
on the pre amp (check). So it's not my best pull, but it's still great to hear these songs performed in a live setting by
a great band. Also, minor phasing for the first two songs while I repostioned and drunken screaming throughout. Fortunately
most of which is in the background and between songs.
Please support the band. See a live show.
Thank-you for listening.
