NOW, IT'S A PLAYLIST

Hope you're all having a great summer.  News in the ELO world has been sparce, so the blog is getting a vacation break.  Barring any major developments, the blog will pick up again in the coming weeks.

I did see a note on the latest Musictap.net entry that ELO will be one of the artists who will get a Playlist: The Very Best Of... CD on September 2 from Sony BMG.

There's allegedly an All Over The World: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra CD (likely no different than the already existing UK version) in eco-friendly packing coming on Tuesday July 22.  We'll see about that. 

I wonder, though, if record companies push to recycle CD jewel cases, would we even need eco-friendly packaging? There's not much left to CDs after the jewel case, is there?

Anyway, have a great rest of the summer, everyone!

I saw Ticket to the Moon in Wal-Mart with eco-friendly packaging, bad idea, because CDs get scratched that way, if jewel cases go, then they'll get no more of my business, guess this is what they want, Playlist: The Very Best of or any other future ELO release better not have it!

Looks like I will not be buying this anyway as it is an eco-friendly repack of The Essential Electric Light Orchestra from 2003.
