Notes:
Originally conceived by Jeff Lynne as a double LP, 18-track album, but finally released as a single one. Vinyl releases consisted only of 10 tracks: song "Time After Time" was included as track 5 (of 11) only in Cassette and CD releases. Remastered re-releases from 2001 added 3 more tracks as bonus. In 2018 the album was released as originally intended (double LP), although omitting the track "Beatles Forever" (this release is a NEW and separate remaster, the same one that found its way on HD Tracks). A year later, Japan saw a CD release of the same album (the same sound source), identical tracks with no differences.

I like the additional material, however the new edits on this record are a hatchet job! It is as if they used the original master and cut the mew tracks into it, instead of doing a proper remix of the individual tracks and blending them together properly - this was done on the cheap and is reflected in the quality of the packaging and the price . I would have been happy to pay for this to have been done properly. Can you imagine Giles Martin doing this to one of the Beatles albums? Anyway get for the extra tracks but be warned.

When I got this album at a thrift store for a thrift price it was sealed. I had zero idea what to expect. Looking on Discogs at the time, June 2020 there was one sealed copy listed at $49.99. I thought wow, what could this be?! After over a month of hemming and hawing as to weather or not to open this release I am so happy to say that I opened it and am not at all disappointed! Crisp and clear after all these years and every song a winner. Plus the extra not released on the LP! Factor in the creamy quality of a properly mastered Dolby B cassette and it's pure gold imho. Now I find myself thinking about how awesome it will be to make a mixtape with these songs copied from cassette as well as the new originally proposed songs just released in 2018. The ELO story goes on! Secretly of course. Shhhh....

Although it didn't come as the original double album, it still has great tracks like "Rock 'N' Roll Is King" and "Secret Messages". Definitely one of my favorite albums.

Most annoying thing about this release is hearing the drop outs (you can really hear that the years old master tape is degrading now) and it should have been pressed at 45rpm.
The original LP sounds better but its still worth having this for the extras.

Songs are plain to see, so no speculation on what might be missing. Which means it's fast-forward to sound!

This version sounds similar to the 2001 release (which was a "remaster".... even though the 1990 CD was remastered also........), but less compressed. Most tracks (no, not all) sound less pristine than the 1990 CD, which was pretty much perfect, but still the mixing and compression is now CLOSE to perfect, especially considering every ELO album starting with Time was mixed with a lot of compression for its time. All the missing tracks (cut from the original 1990 CD) sound great, so if you are really paranoid (like me), you can just combine the new 2019 tracks with the older 1990 CD and see how it would sound. Add or take a track, of course. Experimenting with combining different releases is fun!

P.S. Took some time to find this out, but the source for this particular CD was the same high resolution digital files HD Tracks acquired to sell (only downscaled to 16bit 44100hz).

plain white inner sleeves, missing lyrics and credits are a real downer. Hey, that's what makes a whole package. But this is cheap, it's a scam.
