Show Notes Chapter Markers

A continuation of the last episode that focused on the music of The Electric Light Orchestra. In this episode we listen to the two previous bands that helped form the concept of ELO. The founders of the band came from two separate groups; Jeff Lynne was in the Birmingham band The Idle Race, which was heavily influenced by The Beatles, Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd and Ray Davies of The Kinks. They played a blend of psychedelic music mixed in with English Music Hall styles and whimsical pop. Roy Wood and Bev Bevan came from the successful mid to late 60's English pop band The Move. They played straightforward rock n' roll until they fell under the influence of the flower power movement and produced some great psychedelic pop music. Ultimately Jeff Lynne was asked to join The Move and e and Roy Wood conceptualized doing music that had pop melodies blending in with orchestral music in the same manner The Beatles did on "Sgt. Pepper". The concept of ELO was born but the two bands they came from had their own unique identities and sounds. This episode presents a sample of their musical output back in the 1960's.
