Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good friend Pete Dicks - the producer, director, chief bottle washer and presenter of that excellent internet and AM/FM radio show Beatles and Beyond - has alerted me to a new charity album entitled "LovePower and Peace" which has just been released by Robin George's LovePower via Angel Air Records [#SJPCD357].

Robin is a former member of Roy Wood's Helicopters but what may also be of interest to ELO [and related artists] fans is that this new CD features supreme slide guitarist and former ELO Part II co-founding member Pete Haycock. We haven't seen much of Pete in the ELO universe since his departure in 1993 but I thought that his participation in this project was of note to those of us who appreciated his input on both record and stage with that original ELO Part II line-up.

"LovePower and Peace" also features a variety of songs and artistes and includes a Beatles tribute song described as "a stonking cover of With A Little Help From My Friends" by the web site Sea Of Tranquility. The profits from this album will support the work of three [3] charities: BCATHaven House and Wolverhampton's very own Compton Hospice"LovePower and Peace" by Robin George's LovePower can be ordered via these links thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends "LovePower and Peace" by Robin George's Lovepower to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO & Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 05-Oct-2011


  1. Thanks for that Keith - it's worth saying that BeatlesandBeyond also plays on RADIO too!

  2. As far as I know, Robin George once played the guitar with The Helicopters. It must be another ELO connection
