LOVE IT !!! Nothing makes me happier than seeing an ELO performance I've never seen before - I don't care what incarnation of ELO it is... 70's ELO, 80's ELO, cheesy lip synched ELO... as long as it's got Jeff it's ELO to me !!!

I absolutely loved the '80s, but the one thing I could never get past was how every single "live" music performance on TV was lip-synced.

Many thanks for uploading.

Jeff and the band still sound as excellent today as they did 40 years ago, even with all the personnel changes over the years. So glad they finally got into the Hall of Fame (2017), and will hopefully continue playing for many more years to come!

Why does Jeff Lynne always get referred to the Beatles, everything he says and sings.Its all a load of crap, leave this genius alone.He is just trying to have a relaxing interview.Got to remember three beatles asked him for help with there music.Jeff lynne is in a league of his own.

I'm proud to say I own 6 variations of Calling America on 3 formats, cassette, cd, and vinyl. I have the '86 album cassette, the vinyl album (Canadian release with "Is It Alright" misprint), 12" single, 2007 CD issue, 2011 CD singles compilation, and a double vinyl album of singles collection from the Netherlands.
I'm also hoping I can find a recordable 8track and put Calling America on it, just so I can say I have Calling America on 8track!!



For all what was going on behind the scenes this is still a great bit of pop music. Not their best, but still a great song!

I love ELO also but the other's that I watched in the 60's also played a great role in my life and will not be forgoten

It's looks more like a cross between Electric Light Orchestra and Electric Light Orchestra Part 2 without Kelly Groucutt.
