Electric Light Orchestra: Burning Bright

Album Notes

BURNING BRIGHT is a brief, oddly titled compilation of some of ELO's biggest hit singles. Jeff Lynne and company had 17 Top-40 hits in the late '70s and early '80s, and most of the biggest ones are here, including the anthemic "Livin' Thing," the McCartneyesque "Strange Magic," the TV sports programming staple "Fire on High," and Lynne's splashy remake of his own classic single with the Move, "Do Ya." A few selections that postdate ELO's commercial peak in the late '70s, including "Standin' in the Rain" and the goodtimey "Rock and Roll Is King," prove that the quality of the band's output remained high even after ELO's day in the Top-40 sun. Packaging is minimal, but as a budget-priced introduction to the Electric Light Orchestra, BURNING BRIGHT does the job.
