Bad Hair. Great Orchestral Pop.

At least that is what Q magazine is saying about the Electric Light Orchestra at the time of the release of Out of the Blue in 1977.

Out of the Blue was the follow-up to the hugely successful A New World Record, and is generally regarded as Jeff Lynne's greatest achievement. At the time of its release the double album had preorders of four million copies, and eventually went on to sell eight million records worldwide (16 million records total). A remarkable achievement in 1977.

What was even more remarkable was the music.
