    These are original live performances and not lip-synched to the album or single versions.

May 8, 2009

  • Added a new page dedicated to Jeff Lynne related music videos which can be accessed HERE.

April 29, 2009

  • Removed the song Unknown Titles - Tinkerbell's Fairydust and added the songs Sheila's Back In Town and Follow Me Follow (Demo #1) (1966 - #2 & #3). Thanks to an interview with Steve Maher on RadioELO, more information has come to light about Jeff's very brief and quite minimal involvement with Tinkerbell's Fairydust.

April 28, 2009

  • Changed the subtitle for all the Zoom Tour Live tracks from just "May 2001" to "Los Angeles, May 2001". This make it more consistent with other live songs in the database. Also added the songs Introduction Music (Los Angeles, May 2001) and Outroduction Music (Los Angeles, May 2001) (2001 - #33 & #60). And added 5.1 mix versions of all the Zoom Tour Live tracks (2001 - #61 to #85).

April 27, 2009

  • Combined the songs Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Do Ya (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Rockaria! (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Confusion (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986) into the songs Rocker Medley: Ma-Ma-Ma Belle/Do Ya/Rockaria! (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986) and Pop Medley: Sweet Talkin' Woman/Confusion (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986). These songs were performed as medleys, not as standalone songs.

March 29, 2009

  • Changed the Mission (A World Record) song listings from the subtitle "A New World Record" to the correct "A World Record" (1976 - #58 and #78). I'd had them wrong for years. Oops!
  • Added a new page dedicated to ELO's appearances on the USA TV show, The Midnight Special.

March 24, 2009

  • Added the new Regina Spektor songs The Wallet and Regina Spektor - Unknown Titles (2009 - #1 & #2). These are placeholders for the upcoming brand new releases!

March 16, 2009
-Broke up all the "Quadrophonic Mix" songs that have had stereo mixdowns released into separate entries in the database. It's too many to list here, but it's basically all the quad mixes for the Electric Light Orchestra and ELO 2 album.

February 25, 2009
-Added a new page thanking the kind folks who have helped me in the development of this site. It can be found HERE.

February 23, 2009
-Added separate entries for all the Out Of The Blue Tour - Live At Wembley songs from the 2006 DVD, both the stereo mixes and 5.1 mixes (1978 #28 to #61). These mixes are a vast difference from the original mono mix that has been around for years.

February 16, 2009
-Added a page for the Eldorado tour.

February 3, 2009
-Added the songs Oh No Not Susan (Eldorado Tour), Le Cygne (Eldorado Tour), Laredo Tornado (Eldorado Tour), Eldorado (Eldorado Tour) and Eldorado Finale (Eldorado Tour). Also rearranged the order of the Eldorado tour songs to better reflect a more realistic setlist order (1975 #1 to #21).
-Added the songs I'm Alive (5.1 Mix Movie Version) (1980 - #9), Fall, The (5.1 Mix Movie Version) (1980 - #12), Don't Walk Away (5.1 Mix Movie Version) (1980 - #14), All Over The World (5.1 Mix Movie Version) (1980 - #16), Drum Dreams Xanadu (5.1 Mix Movie Version) (1980 - #22), Xanadu (5.1 Mix Reprise Movie Version) (1980 - #24), Xanadu Overture (5.1 Mix) (1980 - #26), and finally Xanadu (5.1 Mix Closing Credits Version) (1980 - #28).

January 30, 2009
-Added the songs Free As A Bird (5.1 Mix Extended Video Version) (1995 - #4) and Real Love (5.1 Mix) (1996 - #3).
-Changed the song Free As A Bird (Extended Version) to Free As A Bird (Extended Video Version) (1995 - #3)

January 5, 2009
-Added the songs Night Calls (5.1 Mix Version) (1992 - #3), Little Willow (Video Version) (1997 - #13), Little Willow (5.1 Mix Video Version) (1997 - #14), Beautiful Night (Instrumental Finale Version) (1997 - #16), Beautiful Night (Video Version) (1997 - #17), Beautiful Night (5.1 Mix Video Version) (1997 - #18), You Got It (Video Version) (1989 - #5) and You Got It (5.1 Mix Video Version) (1989 - #6). All are from video, DVD or special 5.1 releases. I plan to add all the 5.1 audio releases eventually, but I need to do more research (on The Beatles, Wembley, Zoom, etc.).
-Changed Mr. Blue Sky (JetBlue Ad Version) to Mr. Blue Sky (Solo Version) (2008 - #1). This is more to bring it in line with the titles for the other solo tracks.
-Added the songs Don't Bring Me Down (Solo Version), Don't Bring Me Down (5.1 Mix Solo Version), Evil Woman (Solo Version) and Showdown (Solo Version) (2008 - #2 to #5). These are all new Jeff Lynne solo recordings of older ELO songs. It seems that Jeff has been rerecording many of his famous ELO songs and using them for product promotions, rather than the original version. It is assumed that this is being done so that Jeff gets more royalties for the use of the songs.
-Added the song Falling In Love (Movie Version) (1988 - #4) as heard in the Her Alibi film.

December 22, 2008
-Added the song Brontosaurus (Edited USA Stereo Single Version) that first appeared on the recent Move Anthology 1966 - 1972 compilation.

October 15, 2008
-Added a new page, a very in-depth analysis of ELO's UK singles. It can be seen HERE. This page took a lot of work to put together, so if you have any problems, let me know.

August 20, 2008
-Added the song Mr. Blue Sky (JetBlue Ad Version) (2008 - #1).

August 18, 2008
-Added the song Square One (Highway Companion Version) (2006 - #2). This version is a slight remix of the song, different than the earlier Elizabethtown soundtrack release.
-Changed all the subtitles from the VH1 Storytellers songs (2001 - #21 to #32) from "New York City, April 20, 2001" to "VH1 Storytellers, April 20, 2001".
-Changed the release title for Into The Great Wide Open (Extended Version) (1991 - #30) from unreleased to the Playback videotape. I'm in the process of adding the video/DVD releases.

August 17, 2008
-Changed the song Ocean Breakup (Eldorado Tour) to Ocean Breakup/King Of The Universe (Eldorado Tour) (1975 - #3). A new bootleg surfaced that confirms this part of the song was performed on the tour.
-Removed the song Showdown (Edited Video Version). It turns out the version I'd previously reviewed was simply a bad videotape version of the video. Instead, the video has the full version of the song.

August 7, 2008
-Added the song Mister Kingdom (Edited UK Single Version) (1974 - #57), an edit found on the B-side of the UK Turn To Stone 7" single.

July 27, 2008
-Added an in-depth analysis of Xanadu.

July 18, 2008
-Added the song Hold On Tight (Edited Single Version) (1981 - #17), containing an extremely small edit compared to the album version.

July 15, 2008
-Changed the song Hugh's Cello Solo (A New World Record Tour) to Hugh's Cello Solo/Csárdás (A New World Record Tour) as that is the song that is played on the only bootleg available representing the A New World Record tour.

July 14, 2008
-Changed all artist references of "Electric Light Orchestra & Olivia Newton-John" to "Olivia Newton-John & Electric Light Orchestra" as that's how it's listed on all resources. Even though ELO wrote, produced, arranged, played and sang backup on the song, Olivia was the star. I suppose if this song were put out in the 2000s, it would be credited to "Electric Light Orchestra feat. Olivia Newton-John". :)
-Changed the songs I'm Alive (Early Version) to I'm Alive (Demo), All Over The World (Instrumental) to All Over The World (Demo), Xanadu (Early Version) to Xanadu (Demo), Drum Dreams (Early Version) to Drum Dreams (Demo), Xanadu (Reprise) to Xanadu (Reprise Movie Version), Xanadu Overture (Cast Credits) to Xanadu Overture, and Xanadu (Closing Credits) to Xanadu (Closing Credits Version). I'm in the process of reworking several of the Xanadu album entries.

July 13, 2008
-Changed the song Mik's Violin Solo (A New World Record Tour) to Mik's Violin Solo/Hava Nagila (A New World Record Tour) as that is the song that is played on the only bootleg available representing the A New World Record tour.
-Added the song Showdown (Long Beach Single Version), which is an edit from the UK Strange Magic UK single. Not sure why I missed that one the first time through...
-Changed the song Strange Magic (Edited USA Single Version) to Strange Magic (Edited Single Version), Strange Magic (Edited USA Mono Single Version) to Strange Magic (Edited Mono Single Version), and Strange Magic (Edited UK Single Version) to Strange Magic (Edited Olé ELO Version) (1975 - #28). After careful comparison of the UK single, it turns out the UK single has the same edit as the USA single, thus the first release of this edit is actually on the Olé ELO album.

July 3, 2008
-Added the song Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited Remaster Version), a version from the 2006 On The Third Day remaster CDs that is slightly edited.

July 2, 2008
-Changed the Idle Race's Deborah to Debora as it is spelled on the original T. Rex single.
-Added the songs King Of The Universe (Edited UK Single Version), King Of The Universe (Edited The BBC Sessions Version) and Daybreaker (Edited USA Single Version) (1973 - #62 to #64). This became necessary after the changes made to these songs yesterday.

July 1, 2008
-Changed all references to Hugh McDowall and Mik Kaminski's solos on the tours to be named consistently, e.g. Hugh's Cello Solo/... and Mik's Violin Solo/....
-Changed all the seperated parts of Ocean Breakup, King Of The Universe, New World Rising, Ocean Breakup Reprise, Daybreaker and the On The Third Day interludes to as they are listed on the On The Third Day album-- Ocean Breakup/King Of The Universe, New World Rising/Ocean Breakup Reprise and Daybreaker. I know this is a turn around from when I previously separated the tracks, but I decided I wanted (1) for all listings of these titles (studio or live) to be consistent and (2) reflect how they are listed on the original On The Third Day album. Apologies for any confusion.

June 1, 2008
-Added a page for the Face The Music tour.

May 30, 2008
-Added the song Satisfaction (1988 - #4), performed by Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and All-Star Band at the 1988 Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame celebration. Jeff provided extra guitar to the performance.


May 20, 2008
-Added the "songs" Unknown Titles - The Chantelles, Unknown Titles - Tinkerbell's Fairydust, Andicapped, Saturday Night At The Duck Pond, Unknown Titles - Andicaps, The, Unknown Titles - The Chads, and Unknown Titles - The Mad Classix (all from 1964 to 1965). This is an attempt to catalog the unknown (and known) songs from Jeff's very early career.


April 21, 2008
-Added the new Move Looking On remaster songs Looking On Part 1 (Take 3 Rough Mix), Looking On Part 2 (Take 12 Rough Mix), Turkish Tram Conductor Blues (Take 5 Rough Mix), Open Up Said The World At The Door (Take 4 Rough Mix), Feel Too Good (Take 11 Extract Rough Mix) and Duke Of Edinburgh's Lettuce, The (Take 2 Rough Mix).

March 20, 2008
-Added the Rossif Sutherland songs These Words and Rossif Sutherland - Unknown Titles.

February 29, 2008
-Added the song Evil Woman (Edited Olé ELO Version). Very subtle difference in this one, but it does appear on a lot of compilations.

January 28, 2008
-Changed the layout of all the pages, allowing for the sidebar navigation. There's a bunch of format changes going on at the moment so if you note any errors, please report them to me.

January 17, 2008
-Added the unreleased (but known to have been recorded for the BBC) live song Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (BBC January 25, 1974) (1974 - #8).

December 19, 2007
-Changed a lot of songs for the Face The Music tour song list. It's too many to list here, but basically did the following (1) found and added the date for the Winterland concert, (2) added the previously unlisted songs from the Winterland concert, (3) changed all references of Medley: 10538 Overture/Do Ya to just 10538 Overture/Do Ya, and (4) broke down Medley - On The Third Day into the various songs that are part of the medley.

December 13, 2007
-Added Whale, The (Edited USA Single Version), which is a slightly edited version found on the B-side of the USA It's Over single.
-Added the Traveling Wilburys song Not Alone Any More (2007 Remix Version), a new remix of the 1988 song available only on the vinyl version of The Traveling Wilburys Collection.

November 20, 2007
-Added the song 10538 Overture (Edited Silver Spotlight Single Version), a unique edit on the USA reissue Silver Spotlight single (United Artists US X 1180-Y).

November 19, 2007
-Added the Move song Feel Too Good (Radio Edit Version), a unique edit that appeared on The Move's Flowers In The Rain CD EP.
-Added the "song" Idle Race - Unknown Alternate Versions. This will indicate the as yet unknown titles that are anticipated on the 5-CD Idle Race boxed set that is coming some day... I hope.

November 16, 2007
-Removed the song Bouncer, The (Four Little Diamonds B-Side Version) and changed the release for Bouncer, The (1981 - #22) from Unreleased to the Four Little Diamonds single. Evidence has come to light that the song was not remixed to the sound of the Secret Messages album and what has been released is as it was intended for the Time album.

November 2, 2007
-Added the song Time Pre-Release Montage (1981 - #24).

October 29, 2007
-Added an in-depth analysis of Don't Bring Me Down.

September 14, 2007
-Removed the songs Evil Woman (Edited Reel-To-Reel Version) and Down Home Town (Edited Reel-To-Reel Version). I am now reasonably certain that the Face The Music reel-to-reel edits are fan created and not official in any way.

September 11, 2007
-Added a new page to list Jeff Lynne songs used in advertisements. It can be found HERE.

September 5, 2007
-Added the songs Medley: ELO 2 Intro/Daybreaker/From The Sun To The World (Boogie #1)/Swan Lake/Closing (Edited Version) (BBC April 19, 1973) and Kuiama (Edited Version) (BBC April 19, 1973) as it turns out the release of these songs on the Live At The BBC set are edited (and thankfully the full versions have been booted before). Also added the song Do Ya (ELO 2 Tour) as it is a known song bootlegged from the ELO 2 tour.
-Rearranged the songs for ELO's promotional appearances and tour in support of the ELO 2 album (1973 - #29 through #43), breaking out the promotional appearances and tour dates into separate entries.

September 1, 2007
-Removed the Traveling Wilburys songs Run That Body Down and Traveling Wilburys - Vol. 3 - Unknown Titles (1990 - #54 and #55). There is reports of these songs is no longer credible, given new information received during the release of the new collection (The Traveling Wilburys Collection).
-Changed the song Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited Strange Magic Version) to Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Strange Magic Version) (1983 - #27). It's not really edited, although it is different from the album.

August 27, 2007
-Added the Idle Race songs Sitting In My Tree (Electronically Processed Stereo Version) (1967 - #5) and Pie In The Sky (Alternate Stereo Version) (1968 - #26). The latter was first used on the USA issue of The Birthday Party and has been used on all subsequent reissues of the song, making the original UK stereo a rarity!
-Changed the Idle Race song Skeleton And The Roundabout to Skeleton And The Roundabout (Stereo Version) (1968 - #3) and changed the format title from the Skeleton And The Roundabout single to the Birthday Party album.
-Moved the Idle Race song Skeleton And The Roundabout (Mono Version) from later in 1968 to the beginning of 1968 (#1) and changed the title from Skeleton And The Roundabout (Mono Version) to just Skeleton And The Roundabout since the mono single was the song's first appearance.
-Moved the Idle Race song Sitting In My Tree from 1968 to 1967 (#4) and changed its first appearance from the Birthday Party album to the Imposters Of Life's Magazine single.

August 13, 2007
-Rearranged the Secret Messages album tracks, restoring the single album running order. There are slight variations between the original double LP version and the single LP version, so until the double LP version is available, the single LP version will be considered the "original" version.
-Better sorted out the Rock 'N' Roll Is King variations, so... Changed Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited Single Version) to Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited UK Single Version) and added Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited USA Single Version) and Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited Strange Magic Version).
-Changed the song 10538 Overture (BBC 1972) to 10538 Overture (BBC July 1972).

August 12, 2007
-Changed the song Elaine (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour) to Dear Elaine (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour). Roy Wood introduces the song as Dear Elaine on a bootleg of the song and that's the title it was given on the eventual release on the Boulders LP (with no Jeff Lynne involvement).

August 11, 2007
-Rearranged and separated the tracks for the tour and the promotional appearances for the first album. As such... Changed Jeff's Boogie #1 to Jeff's Boogie #1 (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Elaine to Elaine (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Jeff's Boogie #2 to Jeff's Boogie #2 (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Jeff's Boogie #2 to Jeff's Boogie #2 (Set Of 6 May 9, 1972) and Great Balls Of Fire (Classical Instruments Version) to Great Balls Of Fire (Set Of 6 May 9, 1972). In addition, added Unknown Titles - Electric Light Orchestra Tour, Queen Of The Hours (Set Of 6 May 9, 1972) and 10538 Overture (Set Of 6 May 9, 1972).

June 27, 2007
-Changed the format titles for the 1978 Wembley concert songs from the Live At Wembley '78 album to the ELO - Live In Concert video. I'm in the process of adding the videos and this was the original official release of these songs.
-Changed the Ringo Starr song I Call Your Name (1990 - #25) from "unreleased" to being on the video The Worlds Greatest Artists Sing Lennon: A Tribute as that's where it first was released.

June 24, 2007
-Added the new Traveling Wilburys songs Maxine, Like A Ship and Runaway (Traveling Wilburys 2007 Version) (2007 - #2 - #4).

June 17, 2007
-Added pages for the A New World Record and (lack of) Discovery tours.

June 15, 2007
-Added the songs Tonight (USA Mono Single Version) (1971 - #2) and California Man (USA Mono Single Version) (1972 - #3).

June 6, 2007
-Changed the format title for the Tom Petty songs Home and Around The Roses (2006 - #12 and #13) from "Unreleased" to Highway Companion - Special Edition.

May 31, 2007
-Changed the song Medley: Intro/From The Sun To The World (Boogie #1)/Swan Lake/Closing to Medley: ELO 2 Intro/Daybreaker/From The Sun To The World (Boogie #1)/Swan Lake/Closing (1973 - #35).

May 10, 2007
-Added the song ELO 2 Intro (1973 - #27). It's been confirmed as an ELO song, hidden on CD.

May 2, 2007
-Changed the format title for Del Shannon's Hot Love song from Hot Love to Callin' Out My Name. Hot Love was the B-side, not the A-side.

March 22, 2007
-Added the "song" Vela, Rosie - Unknown Titles (2001 - #20). We know from interviews that Jeff produced some material for her, but it's unclear what or how much. In any case, it's unlikely this will ever be released.
-Changed Brontosaurus (Edited USA A&M Single Version) to Brontosaurus (Edited USA Mono Single Version) so that the subtitle matches other mono single versions (1970 - #2).

March 19, 2007
-Added an in-depth song analysis for Sweet Talkin' Woman.

February 25, 2007
-Changed the song Drum Dreams Xanadu (Xanadu Special Disco Version) to Drum Dreams Xanadu (Xanadu Special Disco Sampler) (1980 - #22). That's how it's listed on the 12" single it's on.

February 22, 2007
-Removed the song Turn To Stone (Balance Of Power Tour). It was determined that while this song was played at the Heartbeat '86 concert, it was not played during the brief Balance Of Power tour.

February 20, 2007
-Added the new songs from the Out Of The Blue and Balance Of Power remasters: Wild West Hero (Alternate Bridge Home Demo) (1977 #58), The Quick And The Daft (1977 #59), Opening (1986 #13) and In For The Kill (1977 #20). Also, from the Balance Of Power remaster, changed Sorrow About To Fall (Alternate Version) to Sorrow About To Fall (Alternate Mix) (1986 #18) and the Format Title for this song to "Balance Of Power Remaster (2007)". And finally, since Heaven Only Knows (Alternate Version) (1986 #14) was released, I change the Format Title to "Balance Of Power Remaster (2007)" however, this is not the same edit as the bootlegged version, to differeniate it, the bootlegged version was added as Heaven Only Knows (Unedited Alternate Version) (1986 #15).

February 19, 2007
-Added a new page, a very in-depth analysis of ELO's USA singles. It can be seen off the main page or HERE

Also added the mono songs from the Idle Race's Birthday Party LP, Skeleton And The Roundabout (Mono Version), Happy Birthday (Mono Version), Birthday, The (Mono Version), I Like My Toys (Mono Version), Morning Sunshine (Mono Version), Follow Me Follow (Mono Version), Sitting In My Tree (Mono Version), On With The Show (Mono Version), Lucky Man (Mono Version), Mrs. Ward (Mono Version), Pie In The Sky (Mono Version), Lady Who Said She Could Fly, The (Mono Version) and End Of The Road (Mono Version) (1968 - #15 to #27).

February 9, 2007
-Changed the Traveling Wilburys song Not Alone Anymore to Not Alone Any More (1988 - #8). It was noticed that the original album uses this alternate spelling.
-Added the song Rain Is Falling (Edited Single Version) (1981 - #15). This is a very slight edit from the US single.

January 29, 2007
-Removed the Agnetha Fältskog song One Way Love (Razormaid Mix). It is a DJ service mix, not an official remix.

December 22, 2006
-Moved the Sumo Giants songs (1986 #1 & #2) from 1988 to 1986, after it was determined that they were recorded late in 1986 even though it didn't get released until 1988.

December 7, 2006
-Changed the songs xx xxxxx (Alternate Version) to My Marge (Alternate Version) (1971 - #16) and xxxx xxxx xxxxxxxxx (xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxx xxx) to Roll Over Beethoven (Alternate Instrumental Mix) (1973 - #15). This just reveals these hidden tracks after a reasonable amount of time so as not to spoil the surprise.

December 4, 2006
-Added the ability to sort all songs by session, song title and release date (default is session). This way people can view the lists how they prefer. If you have an order that you don't see listed here, let me know and I'll add it. To do this, there was a fundamental change about how the webpages are generated, using php code rather than html. If any notices any problems with this new format, please let me know immediately at jefflynnesongs@gmail.com.

November 28, 2006
-Added the song Mr. Blue Sky (Edited Flashback Version) (1978 - #450), a slightly edited version of the song. I contemplated long and hard about adding this song as a separate entry, but after careful analysis, it's clear some tweeking was done to make it a unique version.

November 2, 2006
-Added a link to the new Discovery French fan website.
-Removed several dead links, including the sad loss of the ELO Network and ELO Light Years Ahead sites. They will be greatly missed.

October 30, 2006
-Added an in-depth analysis of The Move and Electric Light Orchestra's Do Ya.

October 29, 2006
-Added the songs from the 1984 Australian 18 Greatest Hits LP, 17 of which are uniquely edited. Presumably, this was done so that they could put all these songs on one LP. The songs are: Roll Over Beethoven (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1973 - #11), Showdown (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1973 - #44), Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1973 - #67), Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1974 - #45), Evil Woman (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1975 - #29), Livin' Thing (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1976 - #58), Telephone Line (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1976 - #64), Turn To Stone (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1977 - #41), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1977 - #45), Mr. Blue Sky (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1977 - #49), Shine A Little Love (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1979 - #11), Last Train To London (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1979 - #13), Confusion (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1979 - #15), Don't Bring Me Down (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1979 - #16), All Over The World (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1980 - #14), Hold On Tight (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1981 - #17) and Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited 18 Greatest Hits LP Version) (1983 - #30).

October 7, 2006
-Added the unreleased Tom Petty songs Around The Roses and Home (2006 - #12 and #13).

September 21, 2006
-Added the song Telephone Line (Edited A Perfect World Of Music LP Version) (1976 - #59).

September 11, 2006
-Added the songs Everyone's Born To Die (Edited Version), Interludes, Waterfall (Instrumental Mix), Telephone Line (Alternate Vocal Version), Telephone Line (Instrumental Version), Tightrope (Instrumental Early Rough Mix), So Fine (Instrumental Early Rough Mix), Above The Clouds (Instrumental Rough Mix), Surrender, and Latitude 88 North. Changed the songs Fire On High Intro (Early Version) to Fire On High Intro (Early Alternate Mix), Evil Woman (Alternate Version) to Evil Woman (Stripped Down Mix). All are from the new ELO remasters.

September 5, 2006
-Added the songs Hugh's Solo / Flight Of The Bumblebee (Portsmouth June 22, 1976), Mik's Violin Solo/In The Hall Of The Mountain King/Hungarian Dance No. 5/Orange Blossom Special (Portsmouth June 22, 1976), 10538 Overture/Do Ya (Portsmouth June 22, 1976) and Roll Over Beethoven (Portsmouth June 22, 1976) and removed the songs Hugh's Solo / Flight Of The Bumblebee (Face The Music Tour) and Mik's Solo / In The Hall Of The Mountain King - Hungarian Dance No. 5 - Orange Blossom Special (Face The Music Tour). It was determined that the 1970s era bootleg LP, America Sees The Light is the same as the Portsmouth performance released on the Live At The BBC album, but the latter album does not have all the songs from that show.

August 30, 2006
-Removed the "song" Sumo Giants - Unknown Titles. I've been in communication with Adrian Lynden of Sumo Giants and he states that it's simply not true that the band recorded more than the Tower Of Babel song. Jeff looked at several of their demos, but this was the only song he produced for them.

August 5, 2006
-Added the "Not Jeff Lynne" page, as a way to combat those songs that are always mistaken for a Jeff Lynne song.

August 1, 2006
-Added the Heartbeat concert songs, Evil Woman (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Livin' Thing (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Confusion (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Turn To Stone (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Calling America (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Mr. Blue Sky (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986) and Roll Over Beethoven (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986).

July 27, 2006
-Changed the song Whisper In The Night (Set At Six May 9, 1972) to Whisper In The Night (Set Of 6 May 9, 1972), using the correct name of the TV program where it originated.

July 26, 2006
-Added the Tom Petty Highway Companion songs.

July 25, 2006
-Added the Unofficial Remix page to catalog all the various odd mixes that don't necessarily belong in the main song list.

July 15, 2006
-Added the Idle Race song Morning.

June 3, 2006
-Removed the song Daybreaker (Edited US Single Version) since the On The Third Day interludes were separated in the listing, therefore the US single version of the song is simply the song without the interlude attached.

May 22, 2006
-Added the song Kuiama (Edited The BBC Sessions Version). This is a curious version on the The BBC Session album where, despite what the liner notes say, is the studio recording of the song with the intro removed.

May 19, 2006
-Added the song On The Third Day Interlude 2 which is attached to the end of Daybreaker.
-Changed the song New World Rising/Ocean Breakup Reprise into the separate songs New World Rising and Ocean Breakup Reprise.
-Changed the song Ocean Breakup/King Of The Universe into the separate songs Ocean Breakup, King Of The Universe and On The Third Day Interlude 1.

May 16, 2006
-Added the "song" Sumo Giants - Unknown Titles. It seems the band did a lot more songs than Tower Of Babel with Jeff Lynne, all of which remains unreleased.
-Added The Move's Blackberry Way (Demo). It's a demo that Jeff Lynne helped record, although it's fairly certain he was not on the final studio recording.

May 4, 2006
-Added the new tour pages section, with the first analysis on the Out Of The Blue / The Big Night tour. If anyone can help me fill in the gaps, please contact me!

May 1, 2006
-Added the ELO songs Showdown (Edited Video Version) (1973 - #40), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Edited Video Version) (1977 - #43), Mr. Blue Sky (Edited Video Version) (1977 - #49), Last Train To London (Edited Video Version) (1979 - #11) and Here Is The News (Edited Video Version) (1981 - #15). These are all versions unique to the respective promotional videos.
-Added the unreleased Del Shannon 1974 songs Stranger In The Mirror (1974 - #69) and Something To Believe In (1974 - #70).
-Added the unreleased Del Shannon 1973 "Dead Set" songs Broken Down Angel (1973 - #73), And The Music Plays On (1973 - #74) and One Track Mind (1973 - #75).

April 26, 2006
-Added the song Whisper In The Night (Alternate Version) (1971 - #49)

March 16, 2006
-Changed the song Do Ya (Alternate Version #2) to Do Ya (Edited Alternate Version) and changed the Format title to Message From The Country Remaster Promo (2005) (1972 - #6). It did see release on a promo only.

February 25, 2006
-Added the songs Waterfall (Edited Promo Version) (1975 - #36) and Down Home Town (Edited Promo Version) (1975 - #37).

February 22, 2006
-Changed all the titles with parenthetical dates in the title (such as Poker (London 6/22/1976)) to a full date value (such as Poker (London June 20, 1976). This was to reduce any confusion between British and American date formats.
-Changed the date associated with the Fusion - Live In London video from 2005 to 1976. I accidentally put the wrong date the first time around. Oops!

February 10, 2006
-Added the Anita Garbo song Miracles (1977 - #23).
-Added the unreleased George Harrison song Valentine (2002 - #14).

January 27, 2006
-Added the song (with an unknown title) by The Thrills.

January 26, 2006
-Added an in-depth song analysis for Evil Woman.

January 7, 2006
-Added the Bev Bevan song Heavy Head (Edited Friends And Relatives Version). It is a slight edit of the original version.

December 21, 2005
-Added the Duane Eddy song The Trembler (Natural Born Killers Edit Version).

November 17, 2005
-Added the new Tom Petty songs Square One, Turn This Car Around and Down South.

October 31, 2005

October 26, 2005
-Added the songs from the 1976 Face The Music tour released on the Fusion Concert - Live In London videotape.
-Added the song The Fall (Demo). I don't know where it's come from, but it's started floating around in fan circles. Great "raw" version of the song.

October 25, 2005
-Added the song California Man (Alternate Version) as described by Rob Caiger in an article on the Move website.

October 23, 2005
-Added the song It's Over (Edited Single Version), a unique edit from the USA single.

October 19, 2005

October 7, 2005

October 6, 2005
-Added the song King Henry VIII's B*ll*cks (In Old England Town Instrumental - Alternate Version) from the new Harvest Showdown album.

October 4, 2005
-Changed the format release for Mr. Radio (Edited Single Mix Version) from unreleased to the Harvest Showdown album.

September 30, 2005
-Changed the song Do Ya (Alternate Mix) to Do Ya (Alternate Version #2) to bring the title in line with the other alternate version.
-Added the Move songs Don't Mess Me Up (A Cappella Version), The Words Of Aaron (Alternate Version), xx xxxxx (Alternate Version) (a hidden track to be revealed later), and Do Ya (Alternate Version) from the new Message From The Country remaster.

September 19, 2005
-Added a fun ELO limericks page. Just for fun.

September 7, 2005
-Added a link to The Nightriders' website on the main page.

August 15, 2005
-Changed the release title for Livin' Thing (5/2001), Alright (5/2001) and Mr. Blue Sky (5/2001) from the Zoom Tour Live DVD to the European released Moment In Paradise single.

June 10, 2005
-Added the song California Man (Top Of The Pops 6/22/1972). The Move's final appearance after the ELO tour for their first album and just before Roy Wood left the group.

May 25, 2005
-Added the song One Summer Dream (Edited US Single Version). This now concludes my testing off all the US singles and what versions of the songs are on them. Next up, I hope to make a separate page documenting all the variations in the US singles. Then, I'll get crackin' on cataloging all the variations of the UK singles. Stay tuned.
-Changed the song One Summer Dream (Edited Single Version) to One Summer Dream (Edited UK Single Version) after it was determined that the US single version was different.
-Added the song Daybreaker (Edited US Single Version).

May 24, 2005
-Corrected USA chart entry and peak information for the Showdown song analysis page.
-Added the song Twilight (Edited Single Version).

May 13, 2005
-Added an in-depth song analysis for Can't Get It Out Of My Head.

May 12, 2005
-Removed the duplicated song Turn To Stone (Balance Of Power Tour), since I broke it out into the Heartbeat '86 show.
-Added the Heartbeat '86 songs, Twilight (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Turn To Stone (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Telephone Line (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Do Ya (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Rockaria! (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Hold On Tight (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Don't Bring Me Down (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Unknown Titles (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986), Lucille (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986) and Johnny B. Goode (Heartbeat '86, March 15 1986).

May 10, 2005
-Added the songs Mister Kingdom (Edited Single Version) and Down Home Town (Edited Single Version) after it was determined that these were slightly edited versions found on the B-sides of USA issued singles. I've only got a few more USA issued singles to go and I'll have them all verified!

May 6, 2005
-Added the song Daybreaker (Long Beach Single Version) after it was determined that this song, which appeared on the B-side of the USA issued 1976 Showdown single was an edit of the original LP version of the song.

May 3, 2005
-Added the songs Stranger (Edited Single Version) and Train Of Gold (Edited Single Version). It was determined that the US single versions of these songs were slightly edited.

April 26, 2005
-Moved the 1970 tour songs to after the Looking On album.
-Added the song Turkish Tram Conductor Blues (1970 Tour) after it was discovered this song was played as part of the 1970 tour.

April 19, 2005
-Changed the "song" Eldorado Suite: Eldorado Overture / Can't Get It Out Of My Head / Illusions In G Major / Eldorado / Eldorado Finale to their individual titles, all with the subtitle of "(Winterland 1976)".

April 18, 2005
-Added the song Eldorado (Edited Single Version), a slightly edited version from the B-side of the USA Boy Blue single.
-Added the song Sweet Talkin' Woman (Fast Single Version), a version from the USA single that runs a tad faster than it's supposed to.

April 13, 2005
-Changed the song Xanadu (Cast Credits) to Xanadu Overture (Cast Credits). Based upon new information, this is the real name of the song.

April 11, 2005
-Added the VH1 Storytellers songs. I hope to add other live events (e.g. Fusion video, Heartbeat '86) soon.

April 8, 2005
-Added the song Fire On High (Edited Single Version), a version missing the intro found on the B-side of the US Sweet Talkin' Woman single.

April 7, 2005
-Added the song Four Little Diamonds (Edited Single Version). I'm working my way through all of the US singles (with the UK singles to follow) and figuring out where they're different and where they're not. More is coming, so stay tuned.
-Added links to Beth Gatlin's ELO website and the Face The Music Germany website.

April 5, 2005
-Added the song 10538 Overture (US Single Version).
-Changed the song 10538 Overture (Single Version) to 10538 Overture (UK Single Version).

March 17, 2005
-Added the song Sad Affair, a Time outtake by ELO. I haven't been able to independently verify it's existance, but it sounds quite legitimate.

March 11, 2005
-Added a page link to a new Russian ELO site (thanks for the link!).

February 3, 2005
-Added the songs Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited US Single Version) and Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited Light Years Version). After a careful comparison, it was determined that the US single version was unique and despite the rumors, the version of the song on the Light Years (and Ultimate Collection) CD is not the UK single version, but instead some unusual edit that had never been released before.
-Changed the song Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited Single Version) to Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited UK Single Version) in order to differentiate it from the US single version.

January 22, 2005
-Added a link to the Concert For George comparison/analysis.
-Added the various Concert For George variations: Horse To The Water (Movie Version), Isn't It A Pity Movie Version), Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) (Closing Credits Version), While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Edited Promo Version), Handle With Care (Concert For George Rehearsal Version), Taxman (Concert For George Rehearsal Version), All Things Must Pass (Concert For George Rehearsal Version), For You Blue (Concert For George Rehearsal Version) and I'll See You In My Dreams (Concert For George Rehearsal Version).

January 6, 2005
-Changed the titles for all the versions of Poor Boy (The Greenwood) from "Poorboy" to "Poor Boy", listed as two words as that's how the title is on the album's sleeve. Minor, I know, but I do strive for accuracy!

November 27, 2004
-Okay, this may be a bit confusing, but it's really quite simple. It's been determined that the BBC tracks for From The Sun To The World and Momma on the First Light Series: The Lost Planet CD are the same as on the The BBC Sessions CD, even though they claim different record dates. It is pretty certain that the record date provided on the First Light Series: The Lost Planet of November 1, 1972 is correct, not the April 25, 1973 date as listed on the The BBC Sessions CD, mainly because the First Light Series: The Lost Planet is better researched and the other is known to be of questionable sources. Oddly, though, the version of In The Hall Of The Mountain King that was (theoretically) recorded at the same session is on the The BBC Sessions CD, but not on the other. So... I am deleting the two incorrect songs From The Sun To The World (BBC 4/25/1973) and Momma (BBC 4/25/1973). I am changing the album listed from From The Sun To The World (Boogie No. 1) (BBC 11/1/1972) and Momma (BBC 11/1/1972) from First Light Series: The Lost Planet to The BBC Sessions. And finally, I am changing the song In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 4/25/1973) to In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 11/1/1973) to reflect the correct date of when it was recorded. Phew! And Bob? I do have intentions to change from the numeric month to full text month soon, so that will help remove confusion to those across the pond.

November 23, 2004
-Added the in-depth song analysis for Showdown. I'm really proud of this one! I hope to have more up soon, although this one took a lot of work.
-Added the song Whisper In The Night (Guide Vocal Version) that appeared on the Early ELO (1971-1973) collection. There is still a bit of a mystery as to what exactly this is (mislabeled as the quadraphonic mix, but it clearly something different.
-Added a link to the Mr. Blue Sky mailing list website to the main page.

November 17, 2004
-Added a link to Jon Lock's excellent Light Years Ahead website to the main page.

October 27, 2004
-Changed the title of the Traveling Wilburys second album from Volume Three to the syntactically correct Vol. 3. Okay, it's a minor point, but I do strive to be accurate. No where on the CD or LP I have does it give the full word of "volume" as the title. It is always abbreviated. So I'm forced to assume that it should not be spelled out. Curiously, the first album Volume 1 has the title both spell out and abbreviated, giving confusion as to the correct spelling. The spelled out version seems to be more common on the liner notes, so I'm assuming that one is more correct. I suspect that Harrison does these kinds of things just to give the Beatles fans a hard time.
-Changed the Traveling Wilburys "song" title Traveling Wilburys - Volume 3 - Unknown Titles to Traveling Wilburys - Vol. 3 - Unknown Titles per the above album title change.

October 15, 2004
-Changed the song xxxxxx (xxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxx xxx Version) to Kuiama (Edited Instrumental Mix Version). It's a hidden track on the Early Years CD and I figured enough time had passed to publicly reveal what the track was.

August 6, 2004
-Added the Roy Orbison song Windsurfer on which Jeff did backing vocals.

July 28, 2004
-Created a separate index/main page. I have aspirations to one day add some other pages (in-depth song analysis, cover versions, chart information, etc.), which will link off this page.

July 7, 2004
-Removed the song Kuiama (Edited Alternate Mix) after it was determined that this was not an official mix, but rather a fan mix.

July 1, 2004
-Added the "songs" Unknown Titles - On The Third Day B-sides and Unknown Titles - Eldorado B-sides. According to Rob Caiger, some B-sides were recorded for these albums, although he did not provide any further information such as titles and if any of the released stuff are these titles. Until that's cleared up, I'm assuming that there's still some unreleased stuff out there.
-Moved the song Supersonic to being recorded during the Face The Music sessions to between the A New World Record and Out Of The Blue sessions. This is based upon more information about when the song was recorded.

June 20, 2004
-Added the songs Mr. Radio (Edited Single Mix Version) and Kuiama (Edited Alternate Mix). These were taken from an interesting bootleg I was able to obtain. There was some question about the validity of these mixes, but given the source and the other tracks on the bootleg, I'm fairly certain these are legitimate mixes.

June 17, 2004
-Changed the artist for the 2004 Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame tracks Sweet Little Rock 'N' Roller and Feelin' Alright to All-Star Band and Traffic, Kid Rock and All-Star Band to better reflect who did the tracks. Unfortunately, the all star jam for Sweet Little Rock 'N' Roller was not broadcast on VH1, so more information on who played on the track is currently unavailable.
-Changed the song Feelin' Alright? to Feelin' Alright, removing the question mark, which is incorrect.
-Changed the listing for Mr. Blue Sky (Edited UK Single Version) from being on the UK Mr. Blue Sky "album" to the "single" instead. The first listing was simply an error.

June 10, 2004
-Added the ELO song It's Over (Demo). It's known to exist based upon a comment from Rob Caiger, even if it hasn't been released.
-Added the Roy Orbison song Rock 'N' Roll Dreams. It was a Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne composition found in the BMI database, although it remains unreleased.

May 17, 2004
-Changed and added several songs around the 1974 recorded Long Beach album. It's too much to list here so let me explain. First of all, it should be noted that the original album issued in 1974 was apparently not mixed to Jeff Lynne's satisfaction. It was subsequently reissued in the early 1980s and remixed to Jeff's satisfaction. It was then issued on CD in 1998 and rumor has it that it was remixed again although that remains unconfirmed at the moment (although I will eventually find out. In researching the differences between the original album and the 1998 reissue, I noted some major differences. Certainly the sound is better on the reissue (the original was very muddy), but whole sections of the songs were added or removed as well. Also of note is that the original album title is The Night The Light Went On In Long Beach but the 1980s and 1998 reissue used the parenthetical title of The Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach) so that's the nomenclature I use to differentiate the two. All the reissue titles have the parenthetical addition of "(Remix Version)" to their titles. I also will have to recheck the single version of Daytripper against the original album mix, but that will come later when I have time.

March 31, 2004
-Changed the "title" Unknown Titles - Eldorado Tour to the appropriate titles for that tour's setlist.
-Changed the song title Your's Truly, 2095 to the correct Yours Truly, 2095. Again, pretty minor (with/without the apostrophe), but I do strive for accuracy.

March 29, 2004
-Changed the "title" Unknown Titles - A New World Record Tour to the appropriate titles. I finally got a setlist of the tour. I have a setlist for the Eldorado tour and will add those titles shortly as well.

March 26, 2004
-Changed the song title Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Edited Version) to Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Edited Single Version). Pretty minor, but I want to remain consistent.
-Added the previously unreleased tracks Showdown (Alternate Early Mix Version) and xxxxxx (xxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxx xxx Version) from the just released Early Years. The latter song is a hidden bonus track and some wish to retain the surprises, which is why I've used asterisks here. I'll reveal the song later after plenty of time has passed.
-Changed the format title for From The Sun To The World (Boogie #1) (Quadraphonic Mix) and In Old England Town (Boogie #2) (Quadraphonic Mix) from unreleased to Early Years. They were finally released on that title.
-Added Rockaria! (Edited Single Version). It's so minorly different that I'd missed it before.

March 25, 2004
-Added Mr. Blue Sky (Edited UK Single Version). It's a very minor, but unique edit.
-Changed Mr. Blue Sky (Edited Afterglow Version) to Mr. Blue Sky (Edited USA Single Version). I'd been meaning to change this for a long time.

March 24, 2004
-Added the songs Handle With Care (2004 Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony Version), While My Guitar Gently Weeps (2004 Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony Version), Sweet Little Rock 'N' Roller and Feelin' Alright?. These are from... you guessed it... the 2004 Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony. Very cool to hear Jeff singing While My Guitar Gently Weeps and who ever thought he'd share a stage with Prince!

March 17, 2004
--Changed and added several of the Concert For George tracks. The officially released CD of the concerts is missing some tracks and includes some of the speeches on the song tracks, so I have broken out the speeches and changed some of the artist information slightly. So... Added Eric Clapton's Concert For George Introduction, Ravi Shankar's Concert For George Introduction, Ringo Starr's Concert For George Introduction and Dhani Harrison's Thanks And Goodnight. Also changed the artists for Arpan from Ravi Shankar and Band to Anoushka Shankar and Band; Isn't It A Pity from Billy Preston to Billy Preston and Eric Clapton; and Wah Wah from Eric Clapton and Band to Eric Clapton, Jeff Lynne, Andy Fairweather Low and Band. Per the latter two changes, the CD didn't list all the extra featured artists, but since they sang co-lead on the tracks, I thought they warranted a mention as the "artist" for the song. Stay tuned as I've got some more stuff to add as I compare the DVD audio track of the complete concert to the CD soundtrack, the movie soundtrack and some promo materials. A lot of interesting variations are in there.

March 16, 2004
--Added the T. Rex songs Solid Gold Easy Action and T. Rex Unknown Titles. It was brought to my attention that Jeff Lynne did some uncredited guitar work on a few T. Rex songs, in particular Solid Gold Easy Action.

March 4, 2004
--Changed the format title for Shine a Little Love (Edited Single Version) from Flashback to the Shine A Little Love single. I'm not sure why I didn't fix that the first time.

February 6, 2004
--Changed the songs Do Ya (Unedited Alternative Mix) and Mission (A New World Record) (Alternative Mix) to Do Ya (Unedited Alternate Mix) and Mission (A New World Record) (Alternate Mix). This was done for the same reasons the ones below were done.
--Changed the songs Lucky Man (Alternative Early Version) and Follow Me Follow (Alternative Early Version) to Lucky Man (Alternate Version) and Follow Me Follow (Alternate Version). I did this so that all "alternate" versions would have that name, rather than "alternative", which makes me think of alternative/new wave music. Plus, calling it an early version had the possibility of being a misnomer.

January 16, 2004
--Added the uniquely edited songs Birmingham Blues (Edited ELO Classics Version), Loser Gone Wild (Edited ELO Classics Version) and Bluebird (Edited ELO Classics Version). They're from the album... ELO Classics. Obviously someone did some sloppy editing on this one!

January 5, 2004
--Changed and added all the tracks for the Concert For George release. It's too much to list individually here, but for the most part it relflects the tracks exactly as listed on the CD and DVD liner notes.

December 23, 2003
--Changed Shine A Little Love (Edited Flashback Version) to Shine A Little Love (Edited Single Version). It's been determined that this is actually the US and UK single version.
--Added ELO's Rock 'N' Roll Is King (Edited Single Version).

December 5, 2003
--Added Julianna Raye's Laughing Wild (Edited Version). Not much is known about it as I don't have a copy yet, but it has been described to me as existing on a promo CD.

November 29, 2003
--Added the songs Roll Over Beethoven (Edited Flashback Version), Mister Kingdom (Edited Flashback Version), One Summer Dream (Edited Flashback Version), Rockaria! (Alternate Intro Version), Last Train To London (Alternate Intro Version) and Shine a Little Love (Edited Flashback Version). I've finally gotten around to doing some careful comparisons of the Flashback tracks and have noted all the differences. There's still some question about Big Wheels on the set, but I'll save that for another day.

November 21, 2003
--Moved Mama (New Edit) from 2000, back to 1973. I'd finally gotten around to really cataloging the differences between the new edit and the original version and I realized that it was nothing more than that... an edit. It wasn't re-recorded.

November 18, 2003
--Added the 1993 Aerosmith song Lizard Love (Jurassic Park Version), which is different than the original 1992 and newly recorded 2003 versions. This song has been through a lot, and it is now believed that Jeff Lynne only worked on the second version, aka the Jurassic Park version.
--Changed Evil Woman (Edited Olé ELO Version) to Evil Woman (Edited UK Single Version), Strange Magic (Edited Olé ELO Version) to Strange Magic (Edited UK Single Version), Evil Woman (Edited Single Version) to Evil Woman (Edited USA Single Version), and Strange Magic (Edited Single Version) to Strange Magic (Edited USA Single Version). After looking a little closer, I realized that the Olé ELO versions of these tracks first appeared on the UK singles, thus I also had to change the names for the mixes on the US singles, which were different than their UK counterparts.

November 17, 2003
--Added the ELO songs Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited Olé ELO Version), Evil Woman (Edited Olé ELO Version) and Strange Magic (Edited Olé ELO Version). These are slightly different mixes (fading early or missing an intro). They may have appeared on earlier discs that Olé ELO, but that has not been determined yet. More research will find out the truth.

November 14, 2003
--Changed the title for the George Harrison song In Every Grain Of Sand to Every Grain Of Sand, dropping the word "In," which was incorrect.

November 13, 2003
--Removed the George Harrison songs Got My Mind Set On You (Rough Mix), Cloud 9 (Rough Mix), This Is Love (Rough Mix), Fish On The Sand (Rough Mix) and Devil's Radio (Rough Mix). They really are no different than their released Cloud Nine counterparts.

November 12, 2003
--Added the unreleased Paul McCartney songs: The World Tonight (Alternate Mix) and Beautiful Night (Rough Mix). They came from an early sample of the Flaming Pie album and these two are the only two Jeff Lynne produced tracks that were different from the officially released album.
--Added the unreleased Paul McCartney song, Cello In The Ruins. It's not real clear if Jeff Lynne was involved in this track, but it was copyrighted at the same time as other Flaming Pie songs and is thought to be recorded during the September 1996 sessions.

November 11, 2003
--Okay, I made some pretty drastic changes-- far too much to list individually here. I regrouped several titles, giving them headings (such as "Out Of The Blue tour"). Everything is listed relatively chronilogical, with any album material going first, followed by B-sides and alternate versions where available. Tours and live performances are in the order of the setlist, where that information is available. Hopefully this will clear up a lot of the clutter that made it difficult to track down some of the song variations in the list.

October 27, 2003
--Changed the title for Boy Blue (Edited LP Version) to Boy Blue (Edited Ole ELO Version) to better reflect the source of the song.

October 1, 2003
--Added a link to the Paradise Garden website. It looks to be an intriguing ELO site, but it's all in Japanese! Still, it has some fascinating pictures if you wander around (including the Out Of The Blue toilet pictures)!

September 25, 2003
--Change references to the album First Light Series: Electric Light Orchestra to First Light Series: The Electric Light Orchestra Bonus CD and Electric Light Orchestra (Remaster) to First Light Series: Electric Light Orchestra. Kind of a confusing change, but ultimately I thought it makes everything more clear as to where the tracks came from.

September 24, 2003
--Added The Wizards' I Need Your Love. I actually contemplated long and hard on whether I should add this song, but there is still too much evidence suggesting the Jeff Lynne wrote the song. Perhaps one day we'll track down the truth, but as long as there is uncertainty, I'll put it in the list.

September 20, 2003
--Added ELO's Evil Woman (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version). I got to hear it as well and it had a couple of quite noticeable differences!
--Removed ELO's Waterfall (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version). I was able to give it a listen and as far as I can tell, it's no different than the album version.
--Changed Tom Petty's Attention: Cassette Listeners from the 1989 Full Moon Fever album to the 1991 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album Into The Great Wide Open, which is where it actually came from.

September 19, 2003
--Added a new link to the Electric Light Orchestra Digital Almanac at the bottom of the page

September 10, 2003
--Changed the format title for Melting In The Sun (Promo Version) from "Zoom (German promo)" to the more accurate "Zoom (German and Canadian Promo CD)."
--Added the the ELO song All She Wanted (Promo Version) that appeared on the German and Canadian pre-release promo CDs. I haven't figured all the differences yet (which are very few), but will work on it within the next two weeks.
--Added the quite rare Tom Petty track Attention: Cassette Listeners. It exists!
--Moved the other Long Beach unreleased songs to after the listing for the released Long Beach songs. No reason other than since I don't know the setlist of the show, it makes more sense to me to list the tracks in that position.
--Added the ELO song Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Long Beach 5/12/1974) from the Long Beach concert. It's been booted! Although sound quality is fairly poor. I think it was also taken from the pre-PBS *** ****** session.
--Added the Move song 10538 Overture (Undubbed Take 1) as booted from the time that *** ****** played some rarities for a bunch of ELO fans before the PBS show. I actually contemplated if I should call it a Move song or an E.L.O. song, but ultimately decided on Move because because this was before the cellos were added, technically it was recorded at the time as a Move song.

August 28, 2003
--Switched the order of Julianna Raye's Julianna Raye - Unknown Title and Kiki Dee's Here For All Time. How they got switched in the first place, I don't know, but now they're back where I want 'em.

August 26, 2003
--Added Jeff Lynne's Livin' Thing (Live Acoustic Version), as taken from some excepts of an as yet unreleased BBC documentary that appeared on the BBC website a while back.

August 22, 2003
--Removed Del Shannon's You Don't Know What You've Got (Until You Lose It). There has repeatedly been no confirmation that Jeff Lynne was involved with the released (bootlegged?) version of this song or another as yet unknown version and comments from Del Shannon fans appear to be casting doubt on any thought that Jeff Lynne had any involvement at all.
--Added the unreleased Del Shannon Rock On! sessions tracks Two Times Two, There Ought To Be A Law, We Could Have and Never Had A Chance. Information on these tracks is rather sketchy and based upon information provided by a Del Shannon fan. Little is known about them other than they were recorded at or around the Rock On! sessions and had either Jeff Lynne or Mike Campbell producing.

August 20, 2003
--Changed the "song" Introduction - Tony Curtis to Introduction By Tony Curtis and Introduction Theme, basically breaking it into its two components.
--Changed the songs Hugh's Solo (Featuring Flight Of The Bumblebee) and Mik's Solo (Featuring In The Hall Of The Mountain King & Hungarian Dance No. 5) to Hugh's Solo / Flight Of The Bumblebee (Out Of The Blue Tour) and Mik's Solo / In The Hall Of The Mountain King / Hungarian Dance No. 5 (Out Of The Blue Tour), so that they told what tour they were from.
--Added the songs Fire On High (Out Of The Blue Tour), Eldorado Overture (Out Of The Blue Tour), Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Out Of The Blue Tour), Strange Magic (Out Of The Blue Tour), Evil Woman (Out Of The Blue Tour), Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Out Of The Blue Tour) and Outroduction Theme. All are from the... wait for it... Out Of The Blue tour.

August 19, 2003
--Added the songs Hugh's Solo / Flight of the Bumblebee (Face The Music Tour) and Mik's Solo / In The Hall Of The Mountain King - Hungarian Dance No. 5 - Orange Blossom Special (Face The Music Tour) from the... well... Face The Music tour.
--Changed the songs Let's Spend The Night Together / Piano Concerto No. 1 / The End (Face The Music Tour) and Moonlight Sonata (First Movement) / Roll Over Beethoven (Face The Music Tour) so that they had the tour information as part of the title.
--Added the "song" Unknown Titles - A New World Record Tour. This is to represent unknowns song titles played during the 1976 (UK), 1/77 - 4/77 (USA) A New World Record tour. If anyone knows the setlist, please let me know!
--Changed the songs In The Hall Of The Mountain King / Hoochie Coochie Man (Time Tour) and Tribute to John Lennon: Imagine/Nowhere Man/Across The Universe/A Day In The Life (Time Tour) so that they had the tour information as part of the title.
--Added the songs Prologue (Time Tour), Twilight (Time Tour), Yours Truly, 2095 (Time Tour), Evil Woman (Time Tour), Livin' Thing (Time Tour), Telephone Line (Time Tour), From The End Of The World (Time Tour), Here Is the News (Time Tour), Way Life's Meant to Be, The (Time Tour), Showdown (Time Tour), Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Time Tour), Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Time Tour), Wild West Hero (Time Tour), Strange Magic (Time Tour), Fire On High (Time Tour), Turn To Stone (Time Tour), Standin' In The Rain (Time Tour), Mr. Blue Sky (Time Tour), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Time Tour), Shine A Little Love (Time Tour), Last Train to London (Time Tour), Confusion (Time Tour), Do Ya (Time Tour), Rockaria! (Time Tour), Hold On Tight (Time Tour), Don't Bring Me Down (Time Tour) and Roll Over Beethoven (Time Tour). All are from the... wait for it... Time tour.
--Changed Roll Over Beethoven / Telstar to Roll Over Beethoven / Telstar (Balance Of Power Tour).
--Added the songs Twilight (Balance Of Power Tour), Evil Woman (Balance Of Power Tour), Livin' Thing (Balance Of Power Tour), 10538 Overture (Balance Of Power Tour), Showdown (Balance Of Power Tour), Turn To Stone (Balance Of Power Tour), Sweet Talkin' Woman (Balance Of Power Tour), Confusion (Balance Of Power Tour), Telephone Line (Balance Of Power Tour), Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Balance Of Power Tour), Do Ya (Balance Of Power Tour), Rockaria! (Balance Of Power Tour), Calling America (Balance Of Power Tour), Rock 'n' Roll Is King (Balance Of Power Tour), Mr. Blue Sky (Balance Of Power Tour), Hold On Tight (Balance Of Power Tour) and Don't Bring Me Down (Balance Of Power Tour). All are from the... wait for it... Time tour.

August 8, 2003
--Added the "song" Unknown Titles - ELO 2 Tour. This is to represent unknowns song titles played during the 3/73 - 5/73 (UK), 5/73 - 6/73 (USA) ELO 2 tour. If anyone knows the setlist, please let me know!
--Added the songs King Of The Universe (Long Beach 5/12/1974), Bluebird Is Dead (Long Beach 5/12/1974), Oh No Not Susan (Long Beach 5/12/1974), New World Rising (Long Beach 5/12/1974) and Unknown Titles - On The Third Day Tour (Long Beach 5/12/1974). The On The Third Day suite was known to have been played on that tour and was recorded on 5/12/1974 in Long Beach, California. However, the complete setlist of the tour and what was recorded that night are still unknown, thus the "unknown titles" title.
--Added the "song" Unknown Titles - Eldorado Tour. This is to represent unknowns song titles played during the 2/75 (UK), 3/75 (Germany) Eldorado tour. If anyone knows the setlist, please let me know!

August 2, 2003
--Added the songs Do Ya (Edited A Perfect World Of Music LP Version) and All Over The World (Edited A Perfect World Of Music LP Version). Both are unique edits found, appropriately enough, on the A Perfect World Of Music compilation LP.

July 14, 2003
--Rearranged the songs 10538 Overture (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Jeff's Boogie #1, Queen Of The Hours (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), First Movement (Jumping Biz) (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Jeff's Boogie #2, Whisper In The Night (5/9/1972), Elaine and Great Balls of Fire (Classical Instruments Version) so that they reflect the setlist of the 1972 ELO tour.
--Added the songs 10538 Overture (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour), Queen Of The Hours (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour) and First Movement (Jumping Biz) (1972 Electric Light Orchestra Tour) from the... 1972 Electric Light Orchestra tour.
--Changed the song Dear Elaine to simply Elaine since that was the title is was known as at the time.
--Moved the quadraphonic mix songs for the Electric Light Orchestra album to the beginning of 1972. After looking at when the mix was done, compared to when the Move singles were-- at the very least-- released, I felt that the quadraphic mixes needed to be moved.

July 13, 2003
--Changed The Move song titles for I Can Hear The Grass Grow, Fire Brigade and Falling Forever, adding the "(1971 Live Show)" subtitle.
--Added the Move songs Down On The Bay (1971 Live Show), Tonight (1971 Live Show), She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (1971 Live Show), Great Balls Of Fire (1971 Live Show), Message From The Country (1971 Live Show), Words Of Aaron, The (1971 Live Show), Ben Crawley Steel Company (1971 Live Show) and Ella James (1971 Live Show). All were performed at various live TV show appearance in England. They never did tour for the Message From The Country album.

July 12, 2003
--Moved The Move's Falling Forever from 1970 to 1971. I'm in the process of adding in all the known tour setlists and realized I had it during the wrong year.
--Added What? (1970 Tour), Lightning Never Strikes Twice (1970 Tour), Looking On (1970 Tour), Brontosaurus (1970 Tour), I Can Hear The Grass Grow (1970 Tour), and When Alice Comes Back to the Farm (1970 Tour) from... well... The Move's 1970 tour.

July 2, 2003
--Added photos of Jeff for each decade! It makes the page a bit more interesting, I hope.

June 24, 2003
--Changed Diary Of Horace Wimp to The Diary Of Horace Wimp, adding the "The" to the title. Okay, maybe it's minor, but I am striving for accuracy.

June 23, 2003
--Moved Aerosmith's original Lizard Love from 1994 to 1992, based upon new information about when it was recorded.
--Added Aerosmith's Lizard Love (Rugrats Go Wild Version). New song!
--Added Brian Wilson's Spirit Of Rock 'N' Roll back into the database, although I note that Jeff Lynne did not do any production or writing for the song.

June 19, 2003
--Added the count of different songs for each decade.
--Added the ELO remix E.L.O. Mega-Hits. This is an officially released remix put out on a promo only 12" single by CBS in Spain only.

June 10, 2003
--Removed the Beatle's Grow Old With Me. After getting the Good Day Sunshine issue #80 and reading several articles in it and comparing it to other Beatles articles, I've come to the conclusion that this 1990's Beatles song doesn't exist. The source of the confusion appears to be several comments by McCartney, when asked about the third unreleased (and incomplete) 1990's Beatles recording was uncertain of the title (which in reality was the Now And Then/Miss You song) and incorrectly told those who asked that it was Grow Old With Me. John Lennon does have an unreleased song by that title, but it was not the 1990's song the Beatles attempted to record.
--Added John Lennon, Jeff Lynne and Marc Mann's version of Now and Then/Miss You (Temp Track Demo), an early temporary version of the song put together to give the Beatles an idea of how the song would sound.

May 21, 2003
--Added the Prince's Trust concert version of George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Prince's Trust) and Here Comes The Sun and Ringo Starr's With A Little Help From My Friends for which Jeff Lynne does rhythm guitar and background vocals.

May 20, 2003
--Changed the title of Roy Orbison's I Drove All Night to I Drove All Night (King Of Hearts Version) and added the song I Drove All Night from the White Knuckle Scorin' compilation/soundtrack album. Basically the song came out on the White Knuckle Scorin' album in late (November or December) 1991, then showed up later in 1992 on Roy's King Of Hearts album. Between those two releases, the song was tweaked a bit, with a slightly different mix.

May 7, 2003
--Changed the format titled for Roll Over Beethoven (Edited UK LP Version) from Electric Light Orchestra II (UK) to ELO 2. Pretty minor, to be sure, but since the US and the UK albums had those slightly differing titles, I might as well be consistent with that.
--Changed the artist for Your World (Take 2), Get A Hold Of Myself (Take 2) and Mama (Take 1) from just Electric Light Orchestra to Carl Wayne & Electric Light Orchestra... for obvious reasons.
--Added the additional Electric Light Orchestra and Carl Wayne song Mama (Take 1) (Promo Edited Version).

May 2, 2003
--Changed all the formats entitled "previously unreleased" to the first appearance of the song, with a paranthetical year to denote that the song got a delayed released on the described album.

April 29, 2003
--Removed the newly added Electric Light Orchestra song One Summer Dream (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version). It was revealed to be not really extended, just appearing to be so because the volume was slowly increased over the fade out, making it appear longer.

April 27, 2003
--Added the Electric Light Orchestra songs Waterfall (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version), Down Home Town (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version), and One Summer Dream (Edited Reel-to-Reel Version). I was presented with some information that versions of these songs released on the reel-to-reel tapes were slightly different versions of the usual album versions. Indeed, I've gotten copies of two of the songs and they do look to be different edits, but more research is in progress to get more information, confirmation, and-- in fact-- copies of one of the songs. Stay tuned.

April 24, 2003
--Added a link to a page on the book Unexpected Messages. I did this not because anyone asked me to do so, but because I feel so strongly that this is a GREAT book. If you're a fan, this book is a must have.

April 7, 2003
--Added March 1973 Demos as described in the liner notes for First Light Series: ELO 2. I'd sure like to get ahold of this tape, but alas, word has it that Jeff Lynne plans to never release it to the public.
--Changed the titles Brian Matthew Introduces ELO and Brian Matthew Introduces ELO Again to Brian Matthew Introduces 10538 Overture and Brian Matthew Introduces From The Sun To The World. I know, I know, these technically aren't songs and aren't even Jeff Lynne. But their on officially released ELO albums as separate tracks and are still pretty neat.

April 6, 2003
--Based upon newly available record and release information, I rearranged nearly all the tracks after the released of the first album, Electric Light Orchestra through to On The Third Day. Most of the listing is done by when the song was recorded and if not known, when it was remixed or released. It's way too much data to try and explain what I rearranged here, but two of the most significant changes was that I moved the quadraphonic mixes of Electric Light Orchestra from early 1973 to late 1972 and Mama (New Edit from 1973 to 2000 (to when it was newly edited).
--Corrected the "Format" for Roll Over Beethoven (Edited Monument of British Rock Version). I'd had it listed on a "Single", which it should be listed as on an "Album".

April 5, 2003
--Added Auntie (Ma-Ma-Ma Belle Take 1), Auntie (Ma-Ma-Ma Belle Take 2), Mambo (Dreaming of 4000 Take 1), Brian Matthew Introduces ELO Again, From The Sun To The World (Boogie No. 1) (BBC 11/1/1972), Momma (BBC 11/1/1972), Brian Matthew Introduces Roll Over Beethoven, Showdown (Take 1), Your World (Take 2), Get A Hold Of Myself (Take 2), Mama (Take 1), Wilf's Solo, and Roll Over Beethoven (Take 1)-- all from the new ELO 2 - First Light re-issue. I know these tracks are all in a bit of a disarray right now in regard to their order in the list. I'm going to gather a few more facts then rearrange things appropriately. The lines of recorded, mixed and released tracks between Electric Light Orchestra II and On The Third Day are grey, making it hard to sort it all out.

April 3, 2003
--Changed the title of Do Ya (Unreleased Alternate Mix) to Do Ya (Alternate Mix), dropping the word "Unreleased." I just don't really care for such a word to be part of a song title. Okay, I know, I'm nitpicking. Hey, this is my list after all, so make up your own titles for unreleased and alternate versions of the songs.

April 2, 2003
--Changed the "***" notation under the Stats column to "Details." It seems that too many people didn't realize there was data under there. I also bolded all the javascript links so that they stand out a bit more.

March 19, 2003
--Added a downloadable text version of the list. It has all song comments in it.

March 13, 2003
--Added Randy Newman's It's Money That Matters. Jeff Lynne did background vocals only on this track.
--Added the Jeff Healey Band's cover of George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Jeff Lynne did background vocals and some guitar only on this track.
--Added Gary Wright's Human Love. Jeff Lynne did background vocals only on this track.
--Added Tom Petty's Alright For Now. Jeff Lynne did some post production mixing only on this track.
--Added Ringo Starr's Come On Christmas, Christmas Come On, I Wanna Be Santa Claus, and Christmas Time Is Here Again. Jeff Lynne did background vocals only on these tracks.

--By popular demand, I am adding songs where Jeff Lynne only played, but did not write, sing or produce. To differentiate these songs, they are displayed in a greyed out mode. I'll be adding quite a few of these types of songs in the coming weeks.
--Per the above change, I added some of the various versions of Del Shannon's Hot Love, changing the one I had listed to another that did not have Jeff Lynne's involvement and adding two others: Hot Love (Alternate Version) and Hot Love (Live In Studio). I know this is confusing, but I've checked several different Del Shannon session-ographies and here's the deal with this song: Hot Love was recorded in 1991 with Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and George Harrison playing on the track, but Del Shannon producing. The song was released as a single in 1988. The same song was reissued in 1998 on the A Complete Career Anthology album, although surprisingly it has a different ending (with Del singing "Give it to me! Woohoo!"). This 1998 reissue I call Hot Love (Alternate Version). Finally, the song was rerecorded in 1989 or 1990 during the Rock On! sessions, but this time it was produced by Jeff Lynne and instead of the typical recording in layers, it was done live in the studio. This one I call Hot Love (Live In Studio). Sadly, this one that is produced by Jeff Lynne has not been released.

February 22, 2003
--Added the songs that Jeff Lynne did for the Concert For George: Inner Light, The, I Want To Tell You, If I Needed Someone, Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth), Handle With Care, Something, and Wah Wah. Hopefully these will see official release soon, but until then, bootlegs will have to do.
--Changed the artist for Mr. Blue Sky (VW Beetle Ad Version) from Electric Light Orchestra to Jeff Lynne. I got confirmation from both Arnold Communications (the company that put out the ad) and Jeff's manager, Craig Fruin, that it is a completely new recording by Jeff Lynne and is being attributed to Jeff Lynne rather than Electric Light Orchestra.
--Moved Melting In the Sun (Promo Version) to before the Zoom album songs, since it's apparently from a pre-release promo.
--Removed the link for the Jeff Lynne Network site. Sadly, that great site has faded into history. It will be sorely missed, Damien.

February 21, 2003
--Added the song Fire On High Intro (Forward Vocal). This is a portion of the backwards bit on Fire On High played forward. I actually contemplated whether I should add it to the list, but as it has been officially released as a 34 second piece on the USA Gold edition of the Face The Music album, I think it deserves to be in the database. See the song details for how to find the song on the disc as it's a hidden track.

February 8, 2003
--All the songs are now separated by decade, each located by the decade link near the top of each page. Truth is, I knew that with the rather large javascript file attached, it was taking a long time to load, sometimes timing out and causing errors. Hopefully this breakdown by decade will eliminate or reduce that problem. I've also done some tweaking on the links and how they function (using style sheets) so if anyone sees any problems, PLEASE contact me and let me know what browser you're using, what version of browser you're using, and what you were trying to do that caused a problem. Thanks.

February 4, 2003
--Moved the song Alright (Promo Version) to before the Zoom version, since it was done and released on a early promo before the Zoom version.

February 1, 2003
--Added the ELO song, Daytripper (Single Version). I realized the single version of this song was different from the version on The Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach), thinking it was just edited. But when I tried to compare the two, I realized that the single version is completely different! It's obvious that it was not recorded the same night as the instrumentation and vocals are slightly but noticeably different! This single version also sounds edited in a few spots, but it's difficult to tell. It's only 4:07 which is much shorter than the Long Beach version.

January 28, 2003
--Added the ELO songs Evil Woman (Alternate Version), One Summer Dream (Alternate Version), Like A Rat Up A Drain, Give Me Fever, Supersonic, Wishing (Alternate Version), Sorrow About To Fall (Alternate Version), Calling America (Alternate Version), Heaven Only Knows (Alternate Version #2), and Destination Unknown (Alternate Version). These were all songs described as having been played (or described) to fans at a pre-PBS show gathering with ELO archivist *** ******. I didn't attend this taping and came by this information by a forwarded email of someone who attended the show. I don't know how reliable this information is, but given the level of detail, I believe it's probably mostly true.
--Removed Tom Petty's Alright For Now. It was not produced by Jeff Lynne, nor did he play on it at all. He only helped with the final mix. The credits on the Full Moon Fever album are incorrect and were corrected when the song was added to the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Playback boxed set. I actually contemplated long and hard whether I should remove this song from the Jeff Lynne database, considering that Jeff was involve in the song in the final mixing, but finally decided that his participation was just too minimal to really qualify as a Jeff Lynne song.

January 27, 2003
--Added a downloadable zipped Microsoft Excel version of the song-ography to the main page. It's at the bottom of the song list, but before the legend. This file, however, does not list all the song comments. (For those of you who are interested, I have a text version also in the works, which will have all the song comments available.)

January 26, 2003
--Changed the ELO song titles, Flight Of The Bumblebee (Hugh's Solo) and Mik's Solo Medley: In The Hall Of The Mountain King / Hungarian Dance No. 5 / Orange Blossom Special to Hugh's Solo (Featuring Flight Of The Bumblebee) and Mik's Solo (Featuring In The Hall Of The Mountain King & Hungarian Dance No. 5) respectively. I also changed the dates to 1978. These gems were found on a bootleg concert from the Out Of The Blue in 1978.

December 17, 2002
--Added Julianna Raye's songs Fly Away, Golden Destiny, and Brooke & Blake. These song titles are based upon a private email from Julianna Raye to a fan, which were then forwarded to me via private email.
--Changed Julianna Raye's "song" from Julianna Raye - Unknown Titles to the singular Julianna Raye - Unknown Title. A very minor disctinction indeed, but based comments from Julianna Raye, there is only one song left of her with with Jeff Lynne for which the title remains unknown.

November 25, 2002
--Added ELO's Mr. Blue Sky (VW Beetle Ad Version). Not much is known about this version just yet, but it is different from all other known versions before.
--Added the tracks from George Harrison's Brainwashed album, Any Road, P2 Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night), Pisces Fish, Looking For My Life, Rising Sun, Marwa Blues, Stuck Inside A Cloud, Run So Far, Never Get Over You, Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea, Rocking Chair In Hawaii, and Brainwashed.

November 8, 2002
--Added ELO's Mr. Blue Sky (Edited Afterglow Version) from, of course, the Afterglow boxed set. It's an edited version of the regular version.
--Added ELO's Boy Blue (Edited LP Version) from the Ole ELO album.

October 29, 2002
--Added the ELO song Everyone's Born To Die from the forthcoming Electric Light Orchestra II remaster. I know it's a bit premature, but I found some comments about it and needed a place to hang them.
--Added the ELO song ELO Remix - 40 Principales. It's a Spanish promo officially released mix, although not much is known about it at the moment.
--Changed the title of ELO's Whisper In The Night (Acoustic Version) to Whisper In The Night (Take 1). Based upon information from Rob Caiger, the information about this hidden bonus track was finally revealed.

October 17, 2002
--Changed the Paul McCartney song title Songs That We Were Singing, The to the correct title, Song We Were Singing, The. It had simply been incorrectly written before. Oops!
--Changed the Beatles song title Free As a Bird (Special Extended Version w/ Reverse End) to a much simpler Free As a Bird (Extended Version).

October 16, 2002
--Removed the Beatles songs Thinking Of Linking, Ain't She Sweet, Love Me Do, I Saw Her Standing There, I Will, Dehra Dune, Blue Moon Of Kentucky, and Beatles - Unknown Title(s). Jeff Lynne's involvement in these tunes was always sketchy, based only on a comment he made about the jam session where he stated, "We played some old rock-and-roll stuff..." "We" being the operative word here, which could easily be misinterpreted. I got a bootleg of a couple of the tracks and it hardly sounds like a "jam session" and more like they are simply playing snippets of various songs... hardly a jam. Maybe, if one of these days the full facts about this event are released, I'll add them back to the database.

October 12, 2002
--Removed The Gaslight Orchestra's Zig Zag (Shanghai Surprise version). I had been led to believe from a bootleg that the version from the film was different from the one released on the B-side of When We Was Fab, but became suspicious when I noticed that the bootleg version and the When We Was Fab version were the same running time. I rented the Shanghai Surprise film again and realized that there was no way the one on my bootleg was the film version. For starters, the two versions sound exactly alike (as near as I can tell). But mostly, the film version has dialog spoken throughout the entire scene!

October 11, 2002
--Changed the title for ELO's Secret Messages (Alternate Version) to Secret Messages (Edited Single Version). I was finally able to compare the song on the single to the full Secret Messages album version (minus the Secret Messages Intro) and the versions on the Light Years and The Ultimate Collection CDs. There's only two versions of this song: the one on the original album and all the others are the edited single mix.

October 10, 2002
--Changed some of the database structure, eliminating the "W", "P", and "S" columns and replacing them with a "Stat" column. This columns is a placeholder for a link to a window showing various production, release and chart statistics for each song, moving it out of the song title links. Song comments, though, are left in the song title links.
--Changed the order of Miss B Haven's You're Wrong and Sand In My Eyes so that You're Wrong came first. This reflects the order found on the Nobody's Angel album. Don't know why I got them out of order in the first place.

October 9, 2002
--Added the Traveling Wilburys songs, Run That Body Down and Traveling Wilburys - Volume 3 - Unknown Titles. They are unreleased songs, of course, but Run That Body Down recently surfaced as one of the song titles as well as verification of the rumors that Del Shannon had recorded some songs with the Wilburys after Roy Orbison passed away.
--Added Electric Light Orchestra's song Hold On Tight (Short Version). It's a version found on the USA promo single, although admittedly it's a pretty insignificant version with basically only the heavy guitar intro cut.
--Added the Traveling Wilburys song Winged Victory. This is based upon comments found in the book, Dark Star: The Roy Orbison Story. It's reported that the song was started and abandoned, but who knows how far along they got in actually cutting it (if at all).

October 4, 2002
--Changed the George Harrison Fish In The Sand (Rough Mix) and Fish In The Sand to Fish On The Sand (Rough Mix) and Fish On The Sand. Realized I put it down wrong the first time. Oops!
--Changed all reference to George Harrison's Cloud 9 album to Cloud Nine. It's pretty minor, but I want to remain consistent. And according to my copy of the original CD (USA issue), the "9" of the album's title is spelled out. Curiously, though, the actual song, Cloud 9, uses the number instead of spelling it out. *Shrug!*

October 3, 2002
--Changed the Format and Format Title of George Harrison's Hottest Gong In Town from "XXX" and "Unreleased" to "Album" and Songs By George Harrison Vol. 2 since... well, it was released on that rather pricey book and music set.
--Changed the Format Title of George Harrison's Zig Zag (Shanghai Surprise Version) from "Unreleased (Shanghai Surprise - Soundtrack)" to just "Unreleased". I still gotta figure out if it's really different than the release version, but that's another day.

October 2, 2002
--Changed the title of ELO's Bouncer, The (1983 Version) to Bouncer, The (Four Little Diamonds B-side Version) to better reflect the version it is.
--Changed the Format Title of Jeff Lynne's Video! (Movie Version) from "Unreleased (Movie Only)" to simply "Unreleased". Also added an asterisk to indicated it's been bootlegged (e.g. copied off of video onto audio CD).
--Changed the Format Title of the Everly Brothers' Story Of Me, The from E.B. '84 to Everly Brothers, The. I had pulled out my original CD and realized that this was the original title of the album in both the USA and UK, but it was only later on the re-issue that the US title changed to E.B. '84.
--Changed the title of ELO's Endless Lies (Remix Version) to Endless Lies (Balance Of Power Version) to better reflect the version it is.

September 27, 2002
--Added ELO's Roll Over Beethoven (Edited Monument of British Rock Version), which was found to be a different edit on a compilation LP.
--Added ELO's Oh No Not Susan (Edited Single Version), that was on the B-side to Ma-Ma-Ma Belle.
--Added ELO's Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited UA LP Version), which is a rather odd edit that turned up on the United Artists reissue of On The Third Day (with stock # UAG 30091).

September 26, 2002
--Changed the Format Title of the songs I'm Alive (Movie Version), Don't Walk Away (Movie Version), All Over The World (Movie Version), Fall, The (Movie Version), Drum Dreams Xanadu (Movie Version), Xanadu (Reprise), Xanadu (Cast Credits), and Xanadu (Closing Credits) from "Unreleased (Movie Only)" to just "Unreleased", since the notes and song titles already reflect that they are from the Xanadu movie itself.
--Changed the Format Title of the song Drum Dreams Xanadu (Xanadu Special Disco Version) from simply "Xanadu" to "Xanadu (Japanese Promo)" as it isn't on just any old single, but a special edition of one.
--Changed the Format Title of the song All Over The World (Instrumental) from "Unreleased (Making of Xanadu Special Only)" to "just "Unreleased", since the notes explain where to find the song.

September 24, 2002
--Moved ELO's Little Town Flirt from 1979 to 2001 and changed it from having a Format Title of "Previously Unreleased" to Discovery Remaster. My logic being that the song was started in 1979, but finished off in 2001, therefore, the version that was released more properly belongs in 2001. If ever an incomplete 1979 version is released, it will go there.
--Changed ELO's songs Drum Dreams (Early Version), I'm Alive (Early Version), and Xanadu (Early Version) to be no longer have the Format Title of "Unreleased (Movie Trailer Only)" to just "Unreleased". The fact is, they're still an unreleased songs and the details of the song give information about where to find the songs anyway.
--Changed (and expanded) George Harrison's "song" Harrison, George - Rockline - Unknown Titles to Here Comes The Sun / Bells of Rhymney, Let It Be Me, Something, and In Every Grain Of Sand. I'd had these songs on various bootlegs over the years, but only recently got the entire Rockline show on CD and have been able to confirm the tracks.
--Changed the date of ELO's It's Over (Edited Promo Single Version) from 1977 to 1978, based upon the release date of the single.

September 19, 2002
--Changed the titles of the Jeff Lynne / Elton John collaborations from Unknown Titles to The Loop and Fireball. Various sources indicate that these are the titles of at least two of the songs. It's all very sketchy and circumstantial, but it's the best I can figure given the information I have at hand.
--Removed the Jeff Lynne songs, The Loop and Fireball, since they were transferred to be the titles of the two Jeff Lynne & Elton John songs.
--Changed the title of ELO's It's Over (Promo Version) to It's Over (Edited Promo Single Version) to better reflect which edit it is.

September 14, 2002
--Changed the Jeff Lynne song With A Little Help From My Friends / Nowhere Man to show that Jeff Lynne was not the producer. I finally dug out my original LP and was able to check the credits and it was not Jeff Lynne. For the record, Lou Reizner was the producer.

September 11, 2002
--Changed the names of the songs on the Live At The BBC disc to reflect the record location and date, rather than the BBC broadcast date. Fire On High (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Fire On High (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Poker (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Poker (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Nightrider (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Nightrider (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Medley - On The Third Day (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Medley - On The Third Day (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Showdown (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Showdown (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Can't Get It Out Of My Head (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Can't Get It Out Of My Head (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Poorboy (The Greenwood) (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Poorboy (The Greenwood) (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Illusions In G Major (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Illusions In G Major (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Strange Magic (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Strange Magic (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), Evil Woman (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Evil Woman (Portsmouth 6/22/1976), and Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (BBC 11/6/1976) changed to Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Portsmouth 6/22/1976).
--Added Eldorado Overture (Portsmouth 6/22/1976) as the Live At The BBC has it merged with the song Can't Get It Out Of My Head (which, ironically, is mislabeled as Eldorado).

September 9, 2002
--Removed the ELO live only song On The Third Day Medley: Ocean Breakup / King Of The Universe (Extended) / Bluebird Is Dead / New World Rising Solo / Ocean Breakup Reprise Extended. I noted I already have it on the Live At The BBC CD, although under a radically different name.
--Removed the ELO live only song Eldorado Medley: Eldorado Overture / Can't Get It Out Of My Head / Poor Boy (The Greenwood) / Illusions In G Major / Eldorado / Eldorado Finale . I noted I already have it on the Live At The BBC and Live At Winterland '76 CDs, although under radically different names.
--Changed the year for ELO's live only songs Flight Of The Bumblebee (Hugh's Solo), Mik's Solo Medley: In The Hall Of The Mountain King / Hungarian Dance No. 5 / Orange Blossom Special, Let's Spend The Night Together / Piano Concerto No. 1 / The End, and Moonlight Sonata (First Movement) / Roll Over Beethoven from 1975 to 1976. Not sure why I originally had them listed as 1975, but they were part of the Face The Music tour which happened in 1976.
--Renamed the ELO song Eldorado Suite (as it's called on the Live At Winterland '76 CD) to Eldorado Suite: Eldorado Overture / Can't Get It Out Of My Head / Illusions In G Major / Eldorado / Eldorado Finale. The title is a little more descriptive and also describes the particular songs included.

September 4, 2002
--Changed the name of several "Edited Version" songs to reflect that they are single (or other) edits. I've been turning up several interesting edits above and beyond the single edits (more on that when I've got it cataloged better), so I figured it would be a good idea to further differentiate the tracks in the parenthetical title. Changes are: The Move's Brontosaurus (Edited Version) changed to Brontosaurus (Edited A&M Single Version), The Move's Chinatown (Edited Version) changed to Chinatown (Edited USA UA Single Version), ELO's Roll Over Beethoven (Edited LP Version) changed to Roll Over Beethoven (Edited UK LP Version), Roll Over Beethoven (Single Version) changed to Roll Over Beethoven (Edited Single Version), ELO's Roll Over Beethoven (Promo Version) changed to Roll Over Beethoven (Edited Promo Single Version), ELO's Kuiama (Edited LP Version) changed to Kuiama (Edited Ole ELO Version), ELO's Showdown (Edited Version) changed to Showdown (Edited USA UA Version), ELO's Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Single Version) changed to Ma-Ma-Ma Belle (Edited Single Version), ELO's Boy Blue (Edited Version) changed to Boy Blue (Edited Single Version), ELO's Evil Woman (Edited Version) was changed to Evil Woman (Edited Single Version), ELO's Strange Magic (Edited Version) was changed to Strange Magic (Edited Single Version), ELO's Nightrider (Edited Version) was changed to Nightrider (Edited Single Version), ELO's One Summer Dream (Edited Version) was changed to One Summer Dream (Edited Single Version), and ELO's Telephone Line (Edited Version) changed to Telephone Line (Edited Single Version).
--Changed the date of Del Shannon's Cry Baby Cry from 1974 to 1975. The single was released in 1975. Don't know why I put it as 1974 the first time.

September 3, 2002
--Changed the name of the unreleased song, I See No One/Billion Dollar Brain/Brian to I See No One/Billion Dollar Brain. I have to guess that "Brian" was simply a mistype "Brain". Still, it's an odd name for the song!
--Removed ELO's unreleased song Supersonic. The more I tried to find out information on the song, the more I'm convinced that it turned up as an unreleased song due to a miscommunication about ELO's appearance on the British TV show called Supersonic.

September 1, 2002
--Changed the ELO songs from the The Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach) such that Mik's Solo and Orange Blossom Special are no longer seperate, but listed as one song, Mik's Solo / Orange Blossom Special. Not sure why I seperated them in the first place since the CD does not do that, but I think it had to do with the fact that In The Hall Of The Mountain King and Great Balls Of Fire are combined on the disc, yet I choose to seperate them as they are pretty distinct from each other and the Flashback boxed set only has the song Great Balls Of Fire, having already seperated the songs.

August 30, 2002
--Changed the names of the following ELO songs to reflect the actual record date, rather than the air dates. I figure the record date gives better context of where the tracks belong in ELO history as the goal of this list is to list the chronilogical song history of Jeff Lynne. These changes also alter where the songs are in the listing. Titles changed are: Roll Over Beethoven (BBC 1/27/1973) changed to Roll Over Beethoven (BBC 11/1/1972), From The Sun To The World (BBC 4/30/1973) changed to From The Sun To The World (BBC 4/30/1973), Momma (BBC 4/30/1973) changed to Momma (BBC 4/30/1973), In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 4/30/1973) changed to In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 4/30/1973), Kuiama (BBC 5/12/1973) changed to Kuiama (BBC 4/19/1973), In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 5/12/1973) changed to In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 4/19/1973), Roll Over Beethoven (BBC 5/12/1973) changed to Roll Over Beethoven (BBC 4/19/1973),King Of The Universe (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to King Of The Universe (BBC 1/25/1974),Bluebird Is Dead (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to Bluebird Is Dead (BBC 1/25/1974), Oh No Not Susan (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to Oh No Not Susan (BBC 1/25/1974), New World Rising (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to New World Rising (BBC 1/25/1974), Violin Solo / Orange Blossom Special (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to Violin Solo / Orange Blossom Special (BBC 1/25/1974), In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to In The Hall Of The Mountain King (BBC 1/25/1974), Great Balls Of Fire (BBC 2/2/1974) changed to Great Balls Of Fire (BBC 1/25/1974)

July 26, 2002
--Changed Del Shannon's 1973 Distant Ghost as being originally released on the single The Ghost to being on the single Oh, How Happy. Distant Ghost (mistitled The Ghost) was the B-side and not the A-side of the single.

July 23, 2002
--Moved Big Al Johnson's album to the first position in 1972, before the Move's California Man single. My logic in doing this is knowing that the Big Al Johnson album was recorded at the same time as the Move's Message From The Country and ELO's Electric Light Orchstra album, while the Move singles were recorded after the album recordings were completed.
--Changed the Move's Chinatown and Chinatown (Edited Version) to show that Jeff Lynne was a singer on the song. He shared co-lead vocals with Roy Wood on the tune.
--Added asterisks to the Unreleased notations under the Format Title column for a quick reference to songs that have been bootlegged.

July 21, 2002
--Added All Over The World (Instrumental) as it was found on the Making Of Xanadu TV Special. Unfortunately, it has Gene Kelly and an announcer speaking through most of it.
--Added Fire On High Intro (Early Version) as bootlegged from the pre-PBS Zoom show with *** ******.
--Removed Brian Wilson's Spirit of Rock 'N' Roll because so many sources say that Jeff Lynne did not produce it and only had minimal involvement (if any). Besides, the song just doesn't have Jeff Lynne's sound and I find it increasingly difficult to believe he had any solid involvement in the song.
--Added ELO's Time Megamix. I found it was an officially released (although rare) remix from Argentina.

July 20, 2002
--Changed the Idle Race's Hey Grandma listing to show that Jeff Lynne sang and produced the song. I've got a bootleg copy that proves he sang it and although I have no proof he produced it, it's a pretty good bet he did, considering it's a live only recording.
--Changed the title of ELO's 1972 BBC live version of 10538 Overture from 10538 Overture (BBC 1971) to 10538 Overture (BBC 1972). I realized I'd put the wrong year on the title. Oops!
--Moved The Bouncer from the 1981 Time era back to 1983 and added an unreleased version of The Bouncer to the 1981 slot. I found out from Patrik Guttenbacher that the song had been remixed for the Four Little Diamonds single and given a new, guitar oriented sound. This makes sense because the guitars certainly sound more like the Secret Messages era, rather than the electronics from the Time era. Therefore, the original 1981 version of The Bouncer remains an unreleased gem still.

July 7, 2002
--Added Jeff Lynne's Video! (Movie Version) when it was discovered that the version on the film is different than the album version.
--Added ELO's Roll Over Beethoven / Telstar from the brief 1986 tour, mainly because it is described as such a unique version. I have not heard it myself.
--Removed the George Harrison songs Shanghai Surprise, Breath Away From Heaven (Shanghai Surprise version), and Someplace Else (Shanghai Surprise version) as I have obtained independent verification that Jeff Lynne had no involvement with these songs.
--Added George Harrison's Cheer Down (Movie Version) as I have read reports that it is a different and/or extended version of the album track.
--Removed the Traveling Wilburys' Handle With Care (Demo) since I found out that the demo version of the song that has been floating around in bootleg circles was merely a version of the original song that was faked to a poorer sound quality to sound like a demo.

July 5, 2002
--Added Xanadu (Reprise), Xanadu (Cast Credits), and Xanadu (Closing Credits). Having finally gotten my Xanadu DVD soundtrack transferred to CD, I was able to pick apart the various songs on the actual film soundtrack and figured out these hidden gems that are different from the other versions.

July 3, 2002
--Changed the title of Whisper In The Night (Mystery Early Version) to Whisper In The Night (Acoustic Version). I figured that's a little more meaningful of a title. I've asked Rob Caiger on a few occasions as to the origins of this song, but he has yet to respond to my queries.
--Moved The Move's Chinatown, Down On The Bay, and Chinatown (Edited Version) after the Message From The Country album in the list. Looking at release dates, it's clear that while both were released in 1971, the singles were clearly released after the album.

July 1, 2002
--Moved Jeff Lynne's song Keep Right On To The End Of The Road from 1990 to 1997. It's been difficult to tell when this song was recorded and/or debuted, but sources say it was around 1997 or slightly earlier.

June 27, 2002
--Added Jeff Lynne's song Keep Right On To The End Of The Road.
