Electric Light Orchestra


Trivia:

Did not work together often as a group. Jeff Lynne wrote the songs, called his bandmates together when he was ready to record, and did post-production (mixing and editing) without them. The next time they usually heard the songs was when the finished records began to appear on radio. They would then reassemble to rehearse, before going out on tour. See more trivia »
