Anmerkungen

Discovery is the eighth studio album by English rock band Electric Light Orchestra ELO. It was released on 31 May 1979 in the United Kingdom by Jet Records, where it topped record charts, and on 8 June in the United States on Jet through Columbia Records distribution.

Discovery was the band's first number 1 album in the UK, entering the chart at that position and staying there for five weeks.
The album contained five hit songs in "Shine a Little Love", "Don't Bring Me Down", "Last Train to London", "Confusion" and "The Diary of Horace Wimp", many of which were heavily influenced by disco (in fact, Richard Tandy nicknamed the album, Disco Very). "Don't Bring Me Down" would become one of their only two top three hits in the UK throughout their career "Xanadu" would be number one in 1980, and also their highest-charting US single at number 4. "The Diary of Horace Wimp" was also a hit single in the UK, not patterned after the disco sound; instead it was closer in its Beatlesque style to the band's earlier hit "Mr. Blue Sky". The album itself was the first ever to generate four top-ten singles one of which was a Double A-side from a single LP in the UK and was eventually certified 2x platinum by the RIAA in 1997.

Discovery is notable in that it was the first ELO album not to feature their resident string trio of Mik Kaminski, Hugh McDowell and Melvyn Gale, although they did make an appearance on the Discovery music videos.
In one of his earliest jobs, comedian/actor Brad Garrett, dressed in Middle Eastern clothes and turban, appears on the back cover as the menacing palace guard who is drawing his scimitar.
Discovery was remastered as part of the Epic/Legacy remaster series in 2001; among the included bonus tracks was a cover of a Del Shannon classic, "Little Town Flirt", which was started during sessions for the album but never finished until the year the album was reissued.
Epic / Legacy in 2016 republished the album with a wonderful successful edition on transparent vinyl

I have no other pressings to compare to, but I think this pressing sounds great. I often use Shine a Little Love when showing off the medium to the uninitiated.

Amazing record. The dynamic range is great, and the record is decently quiet. Very cheap, so seek out a first US or UK copy.

¿The diary of Horace Wimp no os parece un "homenaje" a Dear Prudence, de The Beatles? Es un buen disco.

Mastered in what I think of as a '70s rock radio style (think Led Zep or Low-era Bowie), but clearer and not so compressed. It's definitely favoring the sound of the vocals & drums, probably the way Jeff Lynne would've liked it. At times you'll be wondering if there's anyone else in the band.

Overall, it's quite good, but for example, the snare on "Don't Bring Me Down" is louder than on any other release, and in my opinion, if it was meant to be so forward, it would be that way on the vinyl LP, and it's not.

So although it's not really the authentic 1979 or "ELO on LP" sound, it's an enjoyable alternative and not brickwalled, so I recommend it to anyone who wants to hear what this album maybe should've sounded like.

Sound quality of this pressing is the best compared to the original UK & Japan Jet release. More defined bass, and a much warmer sound. This is your go-to pressing for ELOs best album.

This is compressed digital and compressed edition. Original uk and usa 1979 is much better, more dynamic and open sound. I have all this 3 editions and original I like more. I don't know why price for this (digital and compressed) reissue goes so high. It even doesn't have inner sleave or 12'' insert with lyrics. And also quality of print main cover is lower than on original, it darker and muddy. My rating for edition is 3/5.

The bass line on the half speed master goes right down to your boots and then some. The top end is clean and warm with no sibilance. This is the best way to listen to this ELO masterpiece.
