A kick off to a sadly aborted concert tour (ticket sales lagged) and album debut, this mini-concert filmed in the CBS studio in L.A. is a fantastic re-visitation of some of ELO's best songs. Performed by an entirely different band, the music still keeps its energy and Jeff Lynn's unique sound. I found the cellists a great addition to the band; their sound may have been able to be synthesized or omitted entirely, but clearly Lynn understood their playing live gave the music that distinctive ELO touch. While I found only a few of the new songs from the Zoom album worth listening to, the concert as a whole is a wonderful collection, played expertly. Be sure to watch it with a good sound system (NOT through your TV's speakers!) and you won't be disappointed.
