High marks for the 40th Anniversary edition of 'Electric Light Orchestra'...
Back when the BBC aired The Record Producers with Roy Wood in 2009, I hoped for a DVD like this.  Hearing 10538 Overture broken down into its individual parts was pretty excellent to hear as a fan.  Now, given this 40th Anniversary edition of 'ELO' along with the 2001 First Light Series and 2004's The Early Years, this album is about as deconstructed and comprehensive as any ELO LP will probably ever get.
Although there is no new unreleased session material, the DVD alone makes this set pretty satisfying. - Neatly packaged and nicely presented.  It's a new twist on an old standby - and that's one way (I believe) to keep fans on board and interested.
