RECOMMENDED: MUSIC BOOK [Roy Wood]
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! With many thanx to the fantastic A JEFF LYNNE AND RELATED BLOG and Toshiki Komeda of the ELO Move [Japan] Facebook group, ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] has news of a new, comprehensive Roy Wood compilation entitled "Music Book". The 2CD career overview has a designated release date of Monday 14th November 2011 and can be pre-ordered via these links thus:
This thirty six  track compilation explores Roy's career from The Move through ELO and Wizzard to even a couple of covers of two  of his classic compositions by Status Quo and Nancy Sinatra! There's also room for his solo work and his many collaborations.
Spin CD's are quoting a price of £11.99 each for the package whilst amazon.co.uk are citing a price of £14.99 each at present. Whatever price you pay, this looks like a very interesting look at Roy's much under-rated musical legacy - and just in time for your Christmas wish list(s) too!
