BEATLES AND WORLD WAR II

The Beatles sites Beatles Examiner and WogBlog wrote about this earlier this year, and now the pre-orders are up for a re-working of the 1976 film All This And World War II which is now The Beatles And World War II.

The listing is for a 2DVD/1CD set.  There is a track list, though not sure whether it's the music line-up in the film or the track list for the CD.  The Jeff Lynne tracks are split up and the Roy Wood (and Ambrosia) tracks were scrubbed altogether.

Stay tuned.  Release date: 15 July 2016

IT'S THE VINYL COUNTDOWN

There's apparently more to sort through in terms of current and upcoming ELO vinyl.


ELO 2 was out last week -- and it's standard fare but on nice 180g heavyweight vinyl.

There was some quiet but substantial switching around with ELO titles at Let Them Eat Vinyl.



Originally they offered:
Long Wave - white vinyl
Mr. Blue Sky - blue vinyl
ELO Live - red vinyl
Armchair Theatre - blue vinyl
Zoom - white vinyl

Now, it's
Long Wave - clear
Mr. Blue Sky - black
ELO Live - black
Armchair Theatre - blue
Zoom - black

But sometime between the original release and now, there's also

Armchair Theatre - white vinyl
Zoom - clear vinyl


Then we have:

16 April 2016 - Idle Race on color-splattered vinyl, Something Else From The Move 7" EP for Record Store Day

29 April 2016 - The next batch of EldoradoA New World Record and Out of the Blue will be back on black vinyl

10 June 2016 -  The All Over The World compilation will get its first pressing on vinyl on 10 June 2016.

And that's just the vinyl coming up...
