Here is the first substantial release of the year in the Jeff Lynne department.  Eagle Rock Entertainment will issue a new DVD called Electric Light Orchestra Live - The Early Years (just in the UK it sounds like) containing live performances from ELO spanning 1973-1976 including the full Fusion concert during the Face The Music tour.

The DVD will include:
Brunel University 1973
1. King Of The Universe
2. Ma-Ma-Ma Belle
3. In The Hall Of The Mountain King
4. Great Balls Of Fire

Germany 1974 - Rockpalast
1. Daybreaker
2. Showdown
3. Day Tripper
4. Orange Blossom Special
5. Ma-Ma-Ma Belle
6. In The Hall Of The Mountain King
7. Great Balls Of Fire
8. Roll Over Beethoven

London 1976 - Fusion
1. Poker
2. Nightrider
3. Showdown
4. Eldorado Overture
5. Can't Get It Out Of My Head
6. Poor Boy (The Greenwood)
7. Illusions In G Major
8. Strange Magic
9. 10538 Overture
10. Do Ya
11. Evil Woman
12. Ma-Ma-Ma Belle
13. Roll Over Beethoven

Release date is 9 August 2010.  So far this is a UK only release and it's not clear whether this will be a region-free DVD.  So, you see that In Performance DVD that's listed a few posts down.  Scratch that.  More on this particular release as we find it.

I believe a release date has been confirmed for my American and Canadian cousins on this.
Great and all that, but again, this is not an "official" release as such, nor does it need the approval of Jeff Lynne.
Therefore, we are still waiting for something to celebrate ELOs 40th year anniversary. I consider myself a patient bloke, but even I'm getting pissed off now with the new Jeff Lynne album, Armchair Theatre remaster fiasco. Have to cheer myself up with this DVD I suppose!

At least this is something.

Ten to one by the time The Powers That Be release Jeff's new album and they drop the ball on it. He's going to want to leave The Corporate label behind and sell it himself.
