Gruppo Sportivo - Back To ´78 (1978) - Lp
















Artist:  Gruppo Sportivo
Title:  Back To ´78
Year:  1978
Format:  LP
Label: Ariola Records
Catalog#  26472 OT
Prijs:  €10,00

Eind jaren zeventig behaalde de band op de eerste golven van de new wave een nationale populariteit. Creatieve kracht is Hans Vandenburg (gitaar en zang). Naast hem bestond de oerbezetting uit Max Mollinger (drums), Peter Calicher (toetsen), Eric Wehrmeyer (bas) en de Gruppettes Josée van Iersel en Meike Touw (zang). De vaste formule van de band bestond uit popsongs, met veel aandacht voor relativering van personen en situaties, humor (knipogen naar), muziek-citaten en slapstick in de performance; vaak gingen de songs over een 'antiheld'.
Alvorens de groep op de Europese zomerfestivals te zien is neemt ze haar tweede elpee op.
Begin november verschijnt de prima elpee "Back To 78", gevolgd door de single Hey Girl. Beiden beklimmen rap de hitlijsten en de band trekt met haar tournee volle zalen. In Britse poppolls wordt Gruppo als derde genoemd in het staatje meest belovende nieuwe bands, direct achter Ian Dury en Dire Straits. "Back To 78" behaalt in mei 1979 de platina status.

Electric Light Orchestra - Out Of The Blue (1977) - 2Lp
















Artist:  Electric Light Orchestra
Title:  Out Of The Blue
Year:  1977
Format:  2LP
Label: Jet Records
Catalog#   JT-LA823-L2
Prijs:  €20,00

Out of the Blue is the seventh studio album by the British rock group Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in October 1977. Written and produced by ELO frontman Jeff Lynne, the double album is among the most commercially successful records in the group's history, selling about 10 million copies worldwide.
Jeff Lynne wrote the entire album in three and a half weeks after a sudden burst of creativity while hidden away in his rented chalet in the Swiss Alps. It took a further two months to record in Munich. Side three of the original double LP consisted of the symphonic Concerto for a Rainy Day, composed of four separate tracks which together made up a cohesive suite, instead of one continuous track. The inclement weather effects heard on "Concerto" were real and recorded by Lynne during a very rainy summer in Munich 1977. The Concerto suite would be Lynne's last dabbling in symphonic rock.

Side three of the release is subtitled Concerto for a Rainy Day, a four track musical suite based on the weather and how it affects mood change, ending with the eventual sunshine and happiness of "Mr. Blue Sky". This was inspired by Lynne's experience while trying to write songs for the album against a torrential downpour of rain outside his Swiss Chalet. "Standin' in the Rain" opens the suite with a haunting keyboard over a recording of real rain, recorded by Jeff Lynne just outside his rented studio. Also heard at the 0:33 mark of the song, which marks the beginning of The Concerto, is thunder crackling in an unusual manner voicing the words "Concerto for a Rainy Day" by the band's keyboardist, Richard Tandy. At around the 1:07 mark, the staccato strings play a morse code spelling out "ELO". The band used the song to open their 1978 World Tour Out of the Blue concerts.
"Big Wheels" forms the second part of the suite and continues with the theme of the weather and reflection. Apart from its inclusion on the Out of the Blue album, the song has never appeared on any of the band's compilations or as a B-side until 2000, when Lynne included it on the group's retrospective Flashback album. "Summer and Lightning" is the third song in the suite.
The raining weather theme is continued throughout the track though the mood and lyrics are more optimistic. "Mr. Blue Sky", an uplifting, lively song celebrating sunshine, is the finale of "Concerto for a Rainy Day" suite. It is the only piece from the Concerto to be excerpted as a single.

The large spaceship on the album's cover (by now symbolic of the group) was designed by Kosh with art by Shusei Nagaoka. It was based on the logo Kosh designed for ELO's previous album, A New World Record, and looks like the space station with a docking shuttle from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
