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.

In addition to the BluRay and DVD (USA) release of George Harrison - Living In The Material World documentary, Direct Current is now listing something from George Harrison entitled Early Takes Volume 1 also on the release schedule for May 1, same day as the BluRay and DVD release in America.
One can only guess this CD is the bonus CD that came with the Living In The Material World deluxe edition in the UK. Time will tell.
We are intrigued at the title, though. Depending on your interpretation of Volume 1, we are guessing (and frankly, hoping) there's at least one other volume in the cards.
A deluxe edition of Living In The Material World also appears to be forthcoming....

By the way, if you have an iPad and don't have the George Harrison Guitar Collection app, get it. It's amazing. The app links you to samples of his current digital catalog with one exception: Just For Today. It's the short background vocal clip used on his web site a few years ago.

MusicTap also now reporting that the George Harrison documentary Living In The Material World from director Martin Scorsese will finally come to BluRay and DVD in America May 1 on Hip-O/Universal, more than 6 months following the DVD/BluRay release in the UK. If I live to be 100, I'll never understand why they did it this way, but there you have it.
