UJLRP 1997-2008

After plenty of consideration and very generous offers from readers, I've come to conclusion that I'm going to let the Unofficial Jeff Lynne Reference Page expire after Friday without rehosting it.  However, I believe this blog could pick up the slack.  Over the next several weeks, I plan to reuse much of the information that was written on the UJLRP into fresh posts here.  Then, I'll keep the continuous collection of links stored on this page.

It will take time, though.  Since there's still not much in the immediate pipeline from what we can tell, this will make for a good opportunity to refresh the content.  After the review for the Move box set, the evergreen posts will start appearing.

As for the Move box set, I'm told there are production/print problems that are keeping FTM and possibly other places from shipping them.  So, we're keeping an eye out for that.

FACE THE MUSIC ONLINE


Looks like the new incarnation of Face The Music Online is almost ready to go.  The Move box set in now less than 2 weeks away.

DROLE DE VENTE AUX ENCHERES

Still very much a sought-after collectible, the 1991 CD single of the Jeff Lynne-produced Drole De Vie from Et Moi & Moi just had bids on eBay that topped $225.

RUNNIN' DOWN A DOCUMENTARY


Peter Bogdanovich's documentary about Tom Petty will go into a wider DVD release on October 28.  Runnin' Down A Dream will contain bonus concert footage (some vintage) not on the original DVD/CD set. Plenty of Jeff Lynne and Wilburys content in the documentary portion.

FULL MOON IN JAPAN



There's apparently a new edition of Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever coming to Japan on December 3.  It's another SHM-CD which is also compatible with standard CD players.  I have yet to buy an SHM-CD (Super High Material) but it pledges to have better sound.  These are apparently not to be confused with a standard remastered CD which this is not.

Anyone ever buy a SHM-CD and if so, what do you think?

Welcome

Thanks to all of you who offered help and advice during this transition.  I'm really excited with the blog now.  Anyone can leave comments now, which is a change from AOL who didn't allow anyone without an AOL login to comment.

There are plenty of Blogger.com features to go through, so this can only get better.

Now, if we only had a boatload of news to go with it... :-)

Thanks again and welcome aboard!
