ELO Vinyl Set Sweepstakes

Register to win a copy of ELO's 2LP collector's picture disc edition of Out of the Blue we are giving away.

According to the company:

One of the indisputable masterpieces--and most commercially successful titles--in the ELO canon, Out of the Blue, the group's seventh studio album, was originally released in October 1977. The musical and conceptual brainchild of Jeff Lynne, who wrote and produced the entire album, Out of the Blue is among the most ambitious double albums in classic rock history, a complex and visionary work that included, as the album's complete Side 3, Lynne's "Concerto for a Rainy Day," a coherent song suite comprised of four movements and authentic ambient weather effects recorded by Lynne and incorporated into the soundscape of the record.

Out of the Blue was the first ELO album to feature the group's logo as a three-dimensional flying saucer/space station, a visual motif central to ELO's live shows. The album, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 has gone on to sell upwards of 10 million copies worldwide. Out of the Blue is the first double album in UK chart history to spawn four Top 20 singles.

The 2LP collector's picture disc edition of Out of the Blue was remastered from the original master tapes and includes a digital download of the album.

Would be nice to win something for a change. If only to get one of the band members to sign it for me as I only live a few miles away!

One of my great regrets, not have enough common sense in my youth, went the way of digital and disposed of great vinyl like this long ago. Would love to be able to re-build!

Would love this album..

This album, originally considered to be named "Out of This World," is the Maestro Jeff Lynne's magnum opus. In 40 years, I've never tired of it, and have worn out an 8-track and a couple of LPs. Fortunately, my CD might last forever, just like this music. Looking forward to seeing you in Denver in August, Jeff!

A terrific band that started out on United Artists Records and they’ve created some fantastic music over the years...

They formed their own record label, JET Records and then moved over to Epic/CBS Records.

It would be great to win their new remastered “;Out of the Blue” LP as I have the original vinyl of this album.
