Very flat sounding, like watching a basic TV show. Not good. Not good at all.


I am curious – been listening to the concert on Apple Music – just happened to pop up so gave it a listen. Does the CD have the fades and silence between the songs? It’s more like a compilation of live tracks rather than a concert recording.


Yes the CD’s are exactly the same which is a disgrace. It keeps me in mind of a live Then Jerico album i bought nearly twenty years ago which had the same problem between the songs and was very annoying. The thing that amazes me are people are giving this glowing 5 star reviews which makes me wonder if they actually listened to this or are they deaf ?


I hope this isn’t the start of a trend releasing Blu-ray concerts without a 5.1 mix because A-ha did it a few weeks back and now this. In hindsight i’m glad i never bought ELO not just because of the absence of the 5.1 mix but i have been reading reviews saying that the sound quality is very poor on the Blu-ray and the CD’s.


I agree with Paul G was a big let down

Paul G

I was really looking forward to watching the Blu Ray last night after it was delivered by Amazon. Popped it in the player only to realise there is no 5.1 surround only stereo. I can’t enjoy a concert like that so won’t be watching it and it will be resold on Amazon. I am so upset.


Is it non-stop concert, or are there interviews, backstage bits, behind-the-scenes stuff, etc.?

Phil G.

I’m curious to know why Jeff never includes “Diary of Horace Wimp” on his concert setlists. Anyone know why?

Fat Old Bloke

I would have thought his career highlights were with A New World Record & the album that followed Out Of The Blue and the tours that followed them. When ELO was ELO


The official ELO site has a super deluxe with the vinyl, cds and blu-ray. You can find it at https://store-uk.jefflynneselo.com/

Thanks for the update Rob re sound format, very disappointing it is only going to be stereo sound, I think I will be sticking with my Hyde Park DVD.


Jeff has always been one of my faves but I am baffled as to why he objects to 5.1, especially for a live disc. It’s not like you’re actually hearing stereo when you’re at a concert (unless you’re lucky enough to sit in the sweet spot and the mix is actually stereo). Odd.


Trailer/preview video or it didn’t happen! :)

Rob Caiger

The mix is stereo only, no 5.1. And Jeff cares very much about his archive and back catalogue. There’s some nice things on the horizon…


@Rob, can you expand on what nice things are on the horizon?

Paul Kent

@Rob: can I please have my copy of The Move “Anthology” box set that I paid you for nearly 10 years ago and still haven’t received?

Mike the Fish

That double Secret Messages would be nice to see. It’s 27 years since people were teased with some of the missing tracks!


Never listen to the cds when i buy the combo cd/blu-ray or dvd, therefore i hope there will be a sole blu-ray on sale soon


There is no single Blu-ray going to be released https://store-uk.jefflynneselo.com/

Elvis Wilbury

At least there`s a CD/Bluray combo, thanks Otis.

Gary Hunter

Scott that is a good point you have made regards 5.1 sound, it would be criminal if this isn’t surround sound. I’ve looked everywhere to try and find more details but nothing at all is mentioned about the sound format on Blu-Ray/DVD, which is a bit worrying.

Scott G

Well I hope the Blu-ray is 5.1 this time. The BBC Hyde Park with orchestra was Stereo only and although the orchestration was fantastic the sound was not up there with most Blu-ray concerts I have.

Ron Hatchell

I’ve pre-ordered it. Nice to see Jeff use cellos and a violin again. Last time I saw ELO in concert (in the early 80’s), he did away with the two cellos. No much of an “orchestra” sound at this point. But he did a great medley tribute to John Lennon.


Surely this product answers its own question – “Wembley”. If the answer had been “Bust”, there’d be no album… ;-)

Daniel ( from Berlin )

bring “secret messages” on the way as the original planned double album
with “beatles forever” and good “deluxe editions” of “time” and “discovery” !
the “discovery” re-release of 2001 has only 4:30 minutes bonus material ( with 3 ‘tracks’ ).
what a shame!

DJ Control

I’d love all that too Daniel, however I don’t think Jeff has much affection for the ELO vault considering he re-recorded a whole album’s worth of past glories recently. “Afterglow” (1990) and “Flashback” (2000) had some decent out-takes included with the hits and as the anniversary of “Secret Messages” has passed it’s becoming less likely we’ll see an expanded reissue. It would be nice though wouldn’t it?

Mark stuart

I’ve read that Lynne dropped beatles forever from the intended double album for secret messages, because he became friends with Georges harrison and felt a bit embarrassed by the song.

Mike the Fish

Afterglow has the better outtakes IMHO, but doesn’t sound as good as Flashback.

Lloyd Evans

I got this on a notification from LiveNation on Saturday…ordered pronto


Looks like a must have for me. On a related note….Stephen Stills does a cover of Handle With Care on his new album with Judy Collins. It’s pretty different but great!

Gary Hunter

This looks very impressive and a sensible pricing strategy all round. Mr McCartney take note!


A more complete setlist than in “Hyde Park”, but unfortunately still no “Hold On Tight” or “Rain Is Falling” or nothing from “Balance Of Power”. But Xanadu and Rockaria are very welcome inclusions.


What a fantastic night that was, going straight on the wishlist
