I'm listening to this collection of Mark Ronson productions.  Ronson's stock as a record producer has skyrocketed with his win for Amy Winehouse's Rehab.  This collection, which I highly recommend, has him teamed up with several other artists as well as "solo" tracks.

It, of course, got me to thinking if a similar CD by Jeff Lynne would make for a viable release.  The Rossif Sutherland tracks (which have yet to be released) would be a good feature as well as other artists Jeff has worked or would like to work.  Then, for good measure, weave in some new solo Jeff Lynne tracks, maybe an instrumental... and boom!... new music from Jeff and perhaps some support for other artists' tracks he produces.  Many ELO fans never really jumped on board his productions outside of ELO, which is a bit of a shame.  Hard to believe, but Zoom is seven years old this spring.

I was just wondering if anyone in Jeff's camp ever considered such a thing.
