Джефф поучаствовал в альбоме Регины Спектор 'Far'.
о Регине Спектор: Родилась в 1980 году Москве. В 1989 году, во время Перестройки, вместе со своей семьей переехала в Нью-Йорк и поселилась в Бронксе. Получила классическое музыкальное образование по классу фортепиано, закончила консерваторию в штате Нью-Йорк при Purchase College, по классу композиции. Закончила еврейскую религиозную школу. Автор текстов и музыки, Регина Спектор исполняет свои песни, аккомпанируя себе на фортепиано или гитаре. Трудно определить жанр, стиль и направление творчества Регины Спектор: его называют anti-folk, но в нем есть что-то и от панка, и от инди-рока, и от классической музыки (Регина получила классическое музыкальное образование сначала в России, а затем в Нью-Йорке, у профессора Сони Варгас). Ее сравнивают с Бьорк, с Тори Амос, с Ван Моррисоном. Но она все же совершенно оригинальна. Лирика Регины нарочито интеллигентна, с многочисленными культурными реминисценциями — Эдип, Самсон, Эзра Паунд, Пастернак, а музыка экономна и изящна, как классические японские стихи. Самое главное - то, как она умеет играть голосом.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that prolific singer, songwriter and producer Jeff Lynne will be honored with the 2,548th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star in the category of Recording will be dedicated at 1750 N. Vine Street in front of the iconic Capitol Records building where the stars of Lynne’s friends and co-musicians The Beatles and Roy Orbison are cemented. “Jeff Lynne is one of the premier musicians of his time! With longevity and decades of his magical artistry, Lynne has captivated fans with his distinctive style and very memorable sounds,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies. “We are thrilled to add his name to our famed Walk of Fame next to his musical peers.” Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be Tom Petty and Joe Walsh.
Born and raised in Shard End, Birmingham, England Lynne has been bringing music to fans in his home country and around the world for nearly four decades. He came to prominence as the leader and creative force of Electric Light Orchestra—better known by its initials, ELO. With ELO, he scored many hits throughout the 1970s, including “Can’t Get It Out of My Head,” “Livin’ Thing,” and “Don’t Bring Me Down” to name a few.
Lynne eventually went on to concentrate on production and songwriting work for fellow major stars, former Beatles Paul McCartney and George Harrison among them. He resurfaced as a performer in 1988, when he became a member of the Traveling Wilburys.
One thing that has made the past few years thrilling times for Jeff Lynne fans is that the man himself has been busy working in the studio—his natural environment—and increasingly onstage as well to bring Jeff Lynne’s ELO back to life for generations of fans all around the world. The love for Lynne’s musical genius was vividly apparent in September 2014 when ELO headlined BBC Radio2’s Hyde Park festival, the first time in almost 30 years that they’d been on a festival stage. The 50,000 fans in attendance sang along in joyous rapture with every word. More than 800,000 people tuned in to BBC’s “Red Button” to watch the show.
Recently in 2015, during Lynne’s surprise performance with Ed Sheeran at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Lynne’s contemporaries Paul McCartney and artists like Taylor Swift danced exuberantly in the aisles. Lynne’s high profile Grammy Awards appearance came nearly a year to the day after his wildly acclaimed performance at the televised Grammy salute to The Beatles, at which Lynne took his rightful place honoring his heroes and friends as he performed alongside Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh and Dhani Harrison. This exciting re-emergence also coincided with Lynne’s music—both vintage and new—being featured prominently in director David. O. Russell’s acclaimed film “American Hustle.”
In his own powerful but humble way, Jeff Lynne has been making waves all over the world for most of his musical life—a fact memorably documented in the acclaimed 2012 documentary Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO.
In 2012, Lynne returned to make waves all over again with Long Wave. Lynne’s extraordinary latest solo album found this remarkable artist recording some of the great popular songs that first inspired his lifelong and enduring love affair with popular music. The songs that Jeff Lynne revisited on Long Wave are some of the great songs that inspired him to go on to write his modern standards like, “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Showdown,” “Livin’ Thing,” “Do Ya,” “Sweet Talkin’ Woman” and “Telephone Line.”
Long Wavearrived as Lynne was also bringing his fans Mr. Blue Sky: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra, an altogether stunning volume featuring new versions of his past ELO smashes.
Electric Light Orchestra is one of the most remarkable success stories in rock history. ELO has sold over 50-million records worldwide, and continues to be a remarkably popular catalog. Between 1972 and 1986, Lynne wrote and produced 26 Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom, and 20 Top 40 hits in the United States, including 20 Top 20 smashes in the UK and 15 Top 20 smashes in the U.S. The ELO catalog continues to have tremendous impact here in the 21st Century, and demonstrated powerfully so when the compilation All Over The World: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra was released in 2005, and became a Top 10 album hit in international markets including England.
Over the years, Lynne produced and collaborated with many of the greatest musical artists of all time, including Roy Orbison, Del Shannon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and The Beatles themselves. He has also collaborated with such contemporaries as Tom Petty and Joe Walsh, whose latest album Analog Man Lynne helped produce. Together with Harrison, Orbison, Petty and Bob Dylan, Lynne is a member of the Grammy award-winning Traveling Wilburys—a super group like no other.
The undeniable fact is that with Electric Light Orchestra, Jeff Lynne brought the world a different sound that still sounds modern, relevant and great.
Lynne is involved with such organizations as St. Jude Research Hospital, MUSICARES and H.E.A.R.T. (Helping Ease Abuse Related Trauma).

Да, вторая тема, на мой взгляд, ничуть не хуже. Очень напомнило саунд двух альбомов Петти с Джеффом. В итоге мы знаем первую и заключительную песни альбома (акустические версии в конце альбома не в счёт).

JEFF LYNNE’S ELO SIGNS WITH COLUMBIA...
Known as one of the most iconic forces in history, Jeff Lynne’s ELO has signed a global deal with Columbia Records and is set to deliver a new album which will be the first new ELO music in 15 years. As with ELO’s previous chart-topping albums, Lynne continues to serve as ELO’s producer, songwriter, arranger, lead singer and guitarist. In September 2014, for the first time in 30 years, Jeff Lynne's ELO headlined BBC Radio 2's "Festival In A Day" in London's famous Hyde Park to a sold- out crowd of 50,000 fans in attendance and nearly a million people tuned in to watch.
Lynne was the creative genius behind ELO which sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, had more than 20 Top 40 Hits across the U.S. and the U.K. and received countless awards and accolades. At the time of ELO’s formation, Lynne had said the goal was to create modern rock and pop songs. A goal that remains true some 30 years later with the creation of new material.
