RECOMMENDED: RARE SESSION 60 CD ft. KELLY GROUCUTT

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Back in June 2009, on the cusp of the tragic death of Kelly Groucutt, ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] featured the CD recorded by his erstwhile band Session 60. You will [hopefully] be pleased to hear that a batch of one hundred [100] of those very ultra-rare Session 60 [factory sealed] CD's have just appeared on eBay thus:

The track listing [see above] features Session 60 covers of thirteen [13] iconic Sixties songs that we all know and love. There are some interesting and informative sleeve notes within the enclosed insert - plus a surprise hidden track that you will discover if you step out and purchase the CD!
Session 60 [L-R]: Chris Tew; Tim Bellamy [Drums]; Kelly Groucutt; Bob Blair
The CD [first issued in 2005] is likely to become a real rarity as Session 60 are sadly no more, having elected to disband following the passing of KellySession 60 also comprised Tim Bellamy [Percussion]; Bob Blair [Bass] and former OrKestra member Chris Tew [Keyboards].

Kelly features on all the tracks and that alone makes the album an undoubted 'must buy' for all Kelly Groucutt and ELO admirers. ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends Session 60 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 ... 02-Dec-2013

  1. I bought this at an Orchestra gig. Wasn't sure at the time, so thought I'd take a flyer. But it's brilliant - makes some of the songs come alive. Definitely recommend.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Keith! I missed out on getting this, so have just bought a copy! I know its great, because I already have most of the album, just not the physical CD.
