When announcing the new project, set for release along with a songbook tribute album called Long Wave on October 9 via Frontiers Records, Jeff Lynne said he wanted to make use of the knowledge he had gained in the interim as a producer to give these classic recordings a new feel. (Beginning in the ’80s, Lynne has overseen hit albums with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh and others.) The results, Lynne said, are new versions of ELO tracks that are “much more solid and tight.” Recorded at Lynne’s Los Angeles home studio, Mr. Blue Sky includes remakes of the title song, Livin’ Thing, Showdown, Evil Woman, Do Ya, Telephone Line, 10538 Overture and Don’t Bring Me Down, among others. The set will also include “The Point of No Return,” a newly recorded bonus track.
These new albums are arriving as ELO reaches its 40th anniversary. Lynne said he will also oversee expanded reissues of both Zoom, the Electric Light Orchestra’s 2001 release and his debut solo effort, Armchair Theater from 1990.
