Classic Rock Pick Of The Week – Electric Light Orchestra [VIDEO]

April 16, 1972, the British rock group ‘The Move’ became the ‘Electric Light Orchestra.’
Who were ‘The Move’ you ask?

Well, Roy Wood was in ‘The Move’ in the late 1960s, and was looking for a different type of sound.
He envisioned Woodwinds, violins, string basses and cellos for the sound of the band,
Roy met up with Jeff Lynne who liked the idea, and eventually joined ‘The Move’ from ‘The Idle Race’.
They began work on the new project which eventually became the Electric Light Orchestra.
The first album came out in the U.S. in 1972 on this date.
ELO released a total of 12 albums.

Check out this video of the band performing ‘Mr. Blue Sky’
