Electric Light Orchestra, live on air 1972

Lynne’s sleek symphonic pop pastiche of his 50s and 60s musical heroes has inevitably stood the test of time considering the legacy and success of the Electric Light Orchestra. Born on the same West Midlands streets that spawned the Moody Blues and Black Sabbath, ELO concocted an altogether different beast where progressive pop met symphonic rock to create a global success story. These early performances offer a rare glimpse into what the original vision was for the Electric Light Orchestra and the journey thereafter with two extremely gifted songwriters rewriting their own destinies in the process.

London Calling presents the Electric Light Orchestra in a spectacular set featuring the band’s first ever broadcast performances from 1972 for TV and radio. Presenting fully restored and professionally remastered broadcasts with background notes and timeline photos.
