The spring of 1990 had another surprise for E.L.O. fans, when Arcade Holland once again decided to release another E.L.O. compilation with "The Very Best Of E.L.O.". Originally only released on double-LP Arcade 01 4290 22, the album was released on two separate CD's and tapes with the title "The Very Best Of E.L.O. Volume 1" und "The Very Best Of E.L.O. Volume 2" as 01 4291 and 01 4292 followed by the numbers 41 (MC) or 61 (CD). 


By the end of the year a double-CD as 01 4290 62 was also released. Quite daring by Arcade to release another CBS license product after just two years. 

The Very Best Of E.L.O." is quite convincing with his brilliant album artwork though. With it's nightly skyline and the E.L.O. logo it resembles to "A New World Record". 
The artwork of "Volume 2" with the 'daylight' is not quite so strong, probably reflecting also the sales of volume two. Probably this was the reason to come up with the double CD. 

 

With these 30 songs, and in this wisely chosen running order, it is a brilliant collection. Looks like Arcade wanted to show everyone how one can built up a sampler just like a regular album. With the exception of Showdown, Shine A Little Love, Rock 'n' Roll Is King, Roll Over Beethoven, Evil Woman and Strange Magic, all songs are included in their album versions. 
 

Prologue and Twilight are cut as one song that ends no sooner then after the intro to the original albums follow-up Yours Truly, 2095. Nice to see album tracks such as Heaven Only Knows and Bluebird featured.

 

For the first time all four E.L.O. albums from the 80's are featured with two songs. A perfect compilation to win over new fans.

For the 20th anniversary of E.L.O.'s foundation, CBS USA decided to release the 3-CD Anniversary box-set "Afterglow". It remains a mystery to this day, but CBS Europe decided not to issue it in Europe & the UK.

 

Instead in Europe a double-CD with the artwork of "Afterglow" and the title "The Best Of The Electric Light Orchestra" was released. Epic 466558 2 was the first own CBS sampler of E.L.O. in five years, but was drowned by the many other releases in 1990.

 

Telstar and Arcade had paved the way and CBS was simply too late. Only one year later they were taken over by their own distribution company for Japan, Sony. It wasn't the track selection or anything else of CBS/Epic's "The Very Best Of The Electric Light Orchestra", just bad timing. 

While nine songs from the first LP almost equaled “E.L.O.'s Greatest Hits" Album track list, the second LP had more to offer. With So Serious, Getting To The Point and Secret Messages it offered songs of the late E.L.O. singles on a sampler.

 

Strangely missing was however Twilight, which had climbed up to No. 17 in Germany. All songs are featured in their album versions, (Evil Woman and Strange Magic - are included without the orchestra bridge) Mr. Blue Sky even features the 'radio-tuning' and Rock'n'Roll Is King and Secret Messages have the full album bridges and outros to the very last tone.

 

This makes it even stranger that Don't Bring Me Down once again misses the door-slam at the end. The LP was also released in Spain and South Africa. In Germany two MC's were sealed together, in Spain a single MC was released.

Only weeks before the release of the 3 CD set "Afterglow" in the summer of 1990, CBS Associated released a Promo-CD as Picture CD in the USA. It was distributed to the Press and Radio Stations. "Destination Unknown" ZSK 2109 had 'Limited Collector's Edition!' printed on the CD itself, as it was never meant for a regular release, but as a 'Demonstration - Not For Sale' CD.


It looks like CBS had made thousands of it, as it was quite easy and cheap to get your hands on a copy back in 1990. The line 'Taken from the Epic/Associated release "Afterglow" Z3K 46090' clearly showed that "Destination Unknown" was simply made to promote the 3-CD box. As the title track had never before released in the USA, "Destination Unknown" opened the CD with the running order: 

All songs are featured in their version contained on "Afterglow". The selection features the obvious cuts of the albums, but it is nevertheless great: the record company straight away declared a promotional CD a "Collectors Edition"! One couldn't wait for "Afterglow".

The 3 CD Box Set „Afterglow“, released in 1990 by CBS on Epic Associated Z3K 46090, marks several turning points at once in the compilation policy by the Electric Light Orchestra. "Afterglow" was not only the first three records set but also the first sampler not to be released on vinyl.

 

The importance of the album can be estimated by the fact that Jeff Lynne was involved in the project. For the first time since 1979, Jeff Lynne wrote down his own personal comments for a sampler, with Jeff's 'afterglow' he set a final stroke if only temporarily on the chapter of E.L.O.. "Afterglow" marks the end of the first part of the career of E.L.O.

 

Taking a close look on the comments of Jeff, one can see that he feels relieved that it is over and that he can now concentrate on his career as a producer. Another new feature on this sampler was the inclusion of six songs that had been released only as single B-Sides before and who had been unavailable ever since. Topping this was the added bonus of three songs on this sampler that had never before been released. The songs in question were three out of five songs from the "Secret Messages" double-album that had been shelved, when the album was cut down to a single-album. "Afterglow" was only released in the USA, but was available worldwide via import.


The three cassette tape edition Z3T 46090 was released similar to the CD edition in a record sized 12"-box, making it obvious that an LP release would have been possible until the very last day. In the end it wasn't released, probably to cut costs, or because in America vinyl was on the way out in 1990. If released, the border on the LP box would have been turquoise, as the border of the MC box had been purple and the CD box pink, like on the sleeves inside. 

With 47 songs, the release is the most comprehensive compilation ever released by E.L.O. On the subject of songs chosen, the album offered a great overlook with not only well known hit singles featured, but also groundbreaking songs of the development of E.L.O. Included in the box was a 16-page 12"-sized booklet with loads of pictures and the E.L.O. story. For the first time, it featured a rather good discography with all E.L.O. releases in the USA an UK and line-ups, thanks to the support from FTM UK.

 

On one of the cassette labels, one song is misprinted, as I Know That You Know.
All songs are included in their album versions, except Showdown with fade-out, Mr. Blue Sky without radio tuning at the beginning and the Concerto ending. Rock'n'Roll Is King is the single version without faded ending, as is Four Little Diamonds with his longer intro. 


They both were taken from the masters of the unreleased double album. Strange Magic has its Orchestra Intro, but Evil Woman doesn't and Ma Ma Ma Belle loses its piano intro, but last until the last tone in the intro of Dreaming Of 4000. While Rain Is Falling has the CD fade-in, Destination Unknown has a garbled Saxophone Intro and No Way Out only one finger snap at the beginning. 

In  October 1990, Japan released it's own edition with the title "Afterglow  E.L.O.-Anthology" as CBS/Sony 5231-3 in a white 3-CD Jewel Case housed in a 5" slipcase.

 

The 5"-sized booklet featured 106 (!) pages the pictures and discographical information of the US release plus all song lyrics, plus a Japanese album discography with all 13 newly released E.L.O.-CDs from 1990 and all lyrics and liner notes as translation into Japanese letters. 


Worth to mention is this release, because it had three more E.L.O. tracks, missing on the USA edition. These round off the complete works of E.L.O. on "Afterglow". Evil Woman was shifted as E 13 to the first CD. On the second CD, Confusion and Last Train To London were added as L 17 and L 18 and Calling America was added as O 17 on the 3rd CD.

 

Hats off to Sony Japan. With this release a CBS take over was justified. 
With the official end of E.L.O. by the release of "Afterglow", the cannibalizing of the E.L.O. back-catalogue with countless CD-Samplers was now on, starting in the very same year

In the same year when "Afterglow" was released, "E.L.O. Classics" was out in the shops in the USA. The 1990 release CBS Special Products A 21538 was the last USA-edition to be housed in a so-called long-box. The 'long-boxes' were as wide as a normal CD and as high as an LP-sleeve to make it easier to file them and to prevent stealing.
As these long-boxes were often thrown away by record buyers, the US Record Industry decided, to stop producing these long-boxes in 1992.

 

The Artwork of "E.L.O. Classics" is more eye-catching on the long-box as it is on the CD cover itself. Strang-ely enough this self-made Artwork from the sleeves of the LP's "Electric Light Orchestra II" and "Out Of The Blue" does not very professional. The rather odd track listing for a USA release makes it look more like a bootleg then an official release. With a running-time of only 41:56 minutes, this rather short CD features a strange compilation of tracks 
 

Almost all songs are included in their album versions. Evil Woman loses it's orchestral intro, Boy Blue is featured in the "Ole E.L.O."-Version, but like Telephone Line, Bluebird and Ma-Ma-Ma Belle faded out two seconds earlier. Birmingham Blues starts without the long intro-tune, is faded out from 4:00 on and ends 17 seconds earlier at 4:06. God knows what these selection has to do with classic E.L.O. tunes.

 

There are seven singles featured, but also three rather unusual songs. As such, neither Birmingham Blues, nor Loser Gone Wild were ever featured on a sampler again. 


A US Cassette edition with the title "Rocks the classics" has a different artwork. It was released also 1990, but was very rare and has yet to be found.


After the takeover of CBS "ELO Classics" was re-released 1992, this time as a Sony Music Special Products, A 24981. The band name and "Classics" was added on the front cover, which was necessary because the practise of long boxes was abandoned. An 'Excelsior' lettering is printed on sleeve and label.

In 1990 a cassette with the title "Rocks The Classics" was released in the USA on CBS Special Products BT 21953.

The release could have been a prototype to the "E.L.O. Classics" CD. The however rather strange MC Artwork with pink, blue and purple coloured stroke on black ground and the 'higher' order number make it look more like a second try on the cassette market.

On August, 30th 1991 the Korean record company Seang Records released on their label Seagul International a compilation with the title "Best Of The Best Electric Light Orchestra Evil Woman / Telephone Line / Livin' Thing / Roll Over Beethoven". This for us rather unusual title is in Korea a common case

It is remarkable that Nobody's Child and Mission (A World Record) were never before featured on a sampler. Almost all songs are included in their albums versions. Evil Woman and Strange Magic missed their orchestral intros and Roll Over Beethoven is the 4:30 single version.

 

Nobody's Child had a two seconds later fade-in (after the first "Boy Blue-Theme-Reprise") and faded out at 3:30 after the "ahh ahh" and ended at 3:42. The LP included an insert sheet in Koran letters

All songs are featured in their album versions, but Evil Woman loses its orchestral intro. The black vinyl is so thin, that if you hold it against the light, the record shimmers in a translucent brown colour.

In 1991 EMI surprised us with a double-CD set in a Jewel Case, available all over Europe. "Early ELO 1971 - 1973" (CDS 79 7471 2) was a sort of an answer of EMI to CBS' "Afterglow", 
EMI had no own compilation released of their Harvest material since the "First Movement" sampler from 1986, and it had been obvious that something would come soon, EMI had put a great effort into "Early ELO 1971 - 1973". They had been in contact with Face The Music and Rob Caiger, who were allowed into the EMI archives, where he discovered among the officially released Harvest material (released on two albums and three singles), early versions and alternate mixes as part of the recording reels.

 

For the sleeve, another unused picture of the alternate artwork was used. It was similar to the one used on the "The Light Shines On" album. To go with the picture CD's was an eight-page booklet, showing a picture of an early line-up of E.L.O. and a text by John Tobler, covering the history of E.L.O. It started off with E.L.O. Part II's successful UK gigs from May.

 

As the booklet had no page-numbers, the inner-pages were included backwards, resulting in page 5 coming after page 2. By opening the clamps and swifting the order, it could easily be corrected.

The first nine, respectively five songs of each CD are like the two E.L.O. studio albums "The Electric Light Orchestra" from 1971 and "E.L.O. II" from 1973. As such they were released for the first time on CD in Europe, as CBS had released the first albums "No Answer" and "Electric Light Orchestra II" in 1990 only in the USA and Japan. The quadraphonic mixes of First Movement, Mr. Radio, Nellie Takes Her Bow and Whisper In The Night were taken from a quadraphonic master tape that had been created in 1973 from a multi-track tape, mixed down to four cannels.

 

By doing so, the engineers had unintentionally created re-mixes, that are easily recognisable as different to the stereo versions. As such, on Nellie Takes Her Bow (Quadraphonic Mix), the before unheard backing vocals by Roy and Jeff convince, and Mr. Radio (Quadraphonic Mix) is a revealing in its own right. Backwards sung radio voice in the solo part, a violin-track in the verses and a break before the ending-part, which is faded differently to the stereo version.

 

The commonly known Roll Over Beethoven single version from 1972 ends the first CD. The additional tracks on the second CD are the last Harvest Single Showdown with In Old England Town (Instrumental), especially created in 1973 for the single. Baby I Apologise is a song found at the end of the master tape of the first album. It's rather an idea for a song, not fully completed and most likely not intended for inclusion within the E.L.O. concept. Auntie (Ma-Ma-Ma Belle - Early Version) is one of the two early versions of Ma-Ma-Ma Belle, finally released by Warner Brothers, but having been already recorded for EMI. The vocals and the guitar-tracks are more to the front. 

My Woman (Ma-Ma-Ma Belle - Early Version), with the screaming third and fourth guitar-tracks is more close to the original version and lasts a bit longer then the released one. The early versions of Showdown offers not very many differences to the released version. All Over The World (Showdown - Early Version) have a more metallic sound and a new bridge at 2:39, while Bev's Trousers (Showdown - Early Version) features an almost mistaken start at the beginning of the second verse.

 

The voices of Roy, Jeff and Bev hearable at the beginning and ending of the versions weren't included on the album, probably because they were thought not to be suitable to the listeners.

 

To release before unreleased material, was something new to E.L.O. since "Afterglow" and EMI wouldn't take the chance to do so in a large way either. "Early ELO 1971 - 1973" also was released as a double cassette, with Whisper In The Night mistakenly entitled as Alternate Take on the sleeve. The likewise extravagant design had a 3-times foldout MC-insert featuring the complete story of the CD-booklet. The cassette buyers should be treated as good as the CD buyers.

Although the album "Early ELO 1971 - 1973" had been already released in the UK in 1991, it took as long as June 24th 1998, until Toshiba/EMI decided to release it in Japan under the title "Early E.L.O." Owed to the cost, the two CD-set was released in a single CD-Case with a black foldout tray for the second CD.

 

The booklet, taken from the UK release, complete with wrong inserted inner pages, was included as front-cover. The UK-Cover of the 2-CD-Box was included as an insert under the second CD. To go with the release was a 20-page fold-out-paper, having along the E.L.O.-history also all the song-lyrics including Baby I Apologise in English and Japanese letters. Well done!

Plain and all in pink, back in 1991 a compilation album with the title "Rockaria" was released in Spain. Planeta-Agostini, by licence of Sony Music S.A., Epic RCD021-2 has the in print 'Not For Sale - Attached To "Rock"', which is giving the idea that it was only part 21 of a sort of bundle-package in the series "Rock". After 1991 however, it was freely in the shops in Spain. The album was also given a cassette release.

Evil Woman and Strange Magic are featured without orchestral intros, Roll Over Beethoven is the 4:31 single version and Don't Bring Me Down misses the 'door slam' at the end. All other tracks featured are like their album versions. With a playing time of 39:18 minutes, "Rockaria" is not too long and supports as a CD in a series, E.L.O.'s significance to the rock history.
