BEV BEVAN: Music & Dance Fusion Charity Patronage + RRHOF Thoughts

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! With due thanx and credit to Sir Peter Hackett (Cult of Wedge) of Rowley Regis. The Move/ELO/Black Sabbath drummer and percussionist Bev Bevan and his ongoing patronage of Dorridge Music School for their forthcoming seventh annual charity extravaganza 'A Fusion of Music & Dance' were the subject of this rather interesting article earlier this week on Wednesday 11th January via halesowennews.co.uk thus:


The aforementioned article also touches on the subject of Bev's induction into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame with ELO alongside Jeff Lynne. Roy Wood and Richard Tandy on Friday 7th April. From the outset, it has seemed to Yours Truly KJS that Bev is the least likely of the nominated quartet to attend the prestigious ceremony at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which will likely see Jeff Lynne and Richard Tandy on stage with (hopefully) an appearance from Roy Wood too. Bev states in the article that he is currently due to perform with old pal Jasper Carrott in a Stand Up & Rock! show on that night but (at the time of writing) Stafford's Gatehouse Theatre are quoting the show as being held on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th April so that Bev could indeed still make the RRHOF event (at a push) on Friday 7th April - if he were to be accommodated by the other inductees.
Bev Bevan will be co-hosting and participating in 'A Fusion of Music & Dance' on Sunday 7th May at Birmingham's iconic Symphony Hall. The event will raise monies for Birmingham Dogs Home and the MS Society Solihull as well as raising much needed awareness for Delete Blood Cancer, in memory of DMS student Riya Dandekar. Tickets can be purchased directly from Dorridge Music School or Birmingham Symphony Hall via this link thus: www.thsh.co.uk/event/a-fusion-of-music-and-dance-presented-by-dms-heart-of-england-music-academy
elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends 'A Fusion of Music & Dance' featuring Bev Bevan to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff LynneThe MoveRoy WoodThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

REPLAY: ELOBF RECORD OF THE YEAR 2016

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! It may have escaped your attention that neatly nestled within my recent overview of 2016 was the announcement of the elobf Record of the Year. Yours Truly KJS thought that you might be interested to know who was in the running. who got the vote and why, thus:

"elobf have reviewed some great albums in 2016 including "2" by Mudcrutch featuring (of course) Tom Petty and Mike Campbell, "Foreverland" by Neil Hannon and The Divine Comedy, "Sticky Love Songs" by Bubble Gum Orchestra (BGO) and "Bubbles" by Morganisation amongst not a few others. After due consideration, I'm pleased to confirm that the elobf Record of the Year is this year shared between "Sticky Love Songs" and "Bubbles". Both are great albums and well worth a listen with the former another amazing, top class production from the Blue Violin Studio of Michael Laine Hildebrandt with the latter a vibrant, classy reminder of the songwriting prowess of Dave Scott-Morgan and his extended musical family."

REVIEW: STICKY LOVE SONGS [BGO]
REVIEW: BUBBLES [Morganisation]

elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends "Sticky Love Songs" by Bubble Gum Orchestra and "Bubbles" by Morganisation to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, The Move, Roy Wood, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.

INTRODUCING: ELO LIGHT YEARS

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Perhaps one of the strongest indicators of the popularity of the music of the Electric Light Orchestra is the growth in the number of ELO tribute bands in the UK - both established and emerging - in the last few years. It's a tremendous compliment to the enduring appeal of ELO's music and also the only way that many fans (and the general public) can get to hear the music of ELO maestro Jeff Lynne performed live locally, regularly and economically.

ELO Light Years are the newest of those bands - another group based in South Wales - a nonet (or nine piece) formed by Jim Ramsey (lead vocals/guitar) alongside former ELO Again trio Mike 'Chas' Holcombe (keyboards/vocoder), Gaelle Favre (blue violin) and Sarah Waycott (cello) who have joined forces with Robin Davey (bass/vocals), Richard Watson (drums/vocals), Claire Brewster, Angharad Griffiths and Rhiannon Griffiths (backing vocals). Yours Truly KJS looks forward to (hopefully) seeing and hearing ELO Light Years in concert during 2017 with, of course, another elobeatlesforever (elobf) 'Caught Live' gig review following thereafter.
ELO Light Years will make their live debut in Abergavenny next month with a second gig also confirmed in London during March (at the time of writing) thus:

Friday 3rd February
ELO Light Years @ The Kings Arms Hotel, Abergavenny
Tickets: £10.00 each

Sunday 19th March
ELO Light Years @ The Half Moon, Putney, London
Tickets: £10.00 each [*plus booking fee]

You can find out more about ELO Light Years via their official web sites thus:
www.elolightyears.com
www.facebook.com/elolightyears

Please note that ELO Light Years have no connection with the excellent and comprehensive ELO record collection/discography web site ELO Light Years Ahead (ELOLYA) run by Jon Lock.


elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends ELO Light Years to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELOJeff LynneRoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

SJET12109: ELO'S YELLOW TREASURES

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! When Jet Records replaced United Artists with CBS Records as their manufacturer and distributor in Spring 1978 - as oft mentioned in previous elobeatlesforever (elobf) articles - it meant that ELO's studio albums from "On The Third Day" (JETLP202), "Eldorado" (JETLP203), "Face The Music" (JETLP201), "A New World Record" (JETLP200) and "Out Of The Blue" (JETDP400) were hastily reissued (in limited edition coloured vinyl too) alongside their more recent singles "Rockaria!" (SJET100), "Telephone Line" (SJET101) and "Mr. Blue Sky" (SJET104) plus the Jeff Lynne solo single "Doin' That Crazy Thing" (SJET102) and hopefully "Turn To Stone" (SJET103).
The third single taken from "Out Of The Blue" in the UK was, of course, album closer "Wild West Hero" (SJET109), backed by "Eldorado". It was the first 'new' ELO single released via Jet/CBS and made #6 in August 1978. It was also the first ever UK 12" single issued in coloured vinyl by ELO and only ELO's second ever UK 12" single following the Harvest/EMI 12" promo issue of "Showdown"/"Roll Over Beethoven" (PSLP213) issued in support of their early ELO compilation "The Light Shines On" in 1977.
 The 12" yellow vinyl edition of "Wild West Hero" b/w "Eldorado" (even without a picture sleeve) was, naturally, a collectors item and the fact that two differently labelled versions (see photos above/top) were issued ensured that this was (and still is) a much treasured item for ELO fans and record collectors alike.

CHRISTMAS CLASSICS: HOW WIZZARD & SLADE COMPARE

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The welcome news that the Wizzard festive hit "I Wish It Could be Christmas Everyday" reached #23 in the Official UK Singles Chart during Christmas 2016 prompted elobeatlesforever (elobf) to take a look at how often the much loved Roy Wood penned classic has charted since it attained #4 in December 1973 versus Slade's "Merry Xmas Everyone", which pipped it to the top spot that year and also remains popular to the present day.

An aborted switch of labels from Harvest (HAR5079) to Warner Bros. (K16336) for "I Wish It Could be Christmas Everyday" b/w "Rob Roy's Nightmare (A Bit More H.A.)" meant that the Wizzard single had much less time to build up a head of steam than Slade's tune hence its final position of #4 was all the more remarkable. Yet (as shown above) whenever both records have re-entered the singles chart together thereafter, the Wizzard track has managed a higher placing than the Slade song ten (10) out of eleven (11) times.

Yours Truly KJS will (obviously) always prefer "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday". Both songs are perennial faves, equally loved by many and not necessarily in competition with each other. If nothing else, the inclusion of downloads and streamed content within the Official UK Singles Chart since 2006 has given Roy Wood and Wizzard the edge in terms of chart performance.

Jeff went on to a successful solo career and worked with many of his musical heroes including Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Del Shannon and The Everly Brothers.
