I got a chance to scan over this new EMI Publishing sampler from ELO. Er, maybe an ELO Sampler from EMI Music Publishing is a better way to put it. Bottom line: nothing new. The ELO tracks are pullovers from Afterglow and Lily Allen's cover of Mr. Blue Sky is mp3 quality. The Evil Woman remix isn't bad, though.
Is it a fake? I mean, there's not much to the CD and frankly, I could design a better cover using my feet, so I suppose it's possible. But I've seen similar samplers by other artists sold by reputable dealers. I just don't think it's worth 50 quid. Right, eil??!
