Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The latest Official UK Albums Chart Top 100 announced yesterday saw "Alone In The Universe" by Jeff Lynne's ELO leave the Top 100 - for the "Time" being at least - after fifteen [15] weeks in the chart. We should expect a swift chart return for AITU with those UK, Irish and EU dates just a month or so away. Interestingly, having both entered the chart at #4, both 1983's "Secret Messages" and 2015's "Alone In The Universe" currently share the same length chart runs too [at the time of writing] thus:
The Beatles' best-selling "1" compilation has also departed the Top 100 with ELO's platinum certified 2005 "All Over The World" greatest hits compilation dipping twenty four [24] places from #62 to #86. Bryan Adams' successful appearance on ITV last weekend and new single "Do What You Gotta Do" helped the Canadian rocker to re-enter the chart at #44 with "Get Up" - produced, of course, by Jeff Lynne.

ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends "Alone In The Universe" by Jeff Lynne's ELO and "Get Up" by Bryan Adams to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELORoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race, 'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 05-March-2016
