Feature LP: Electric Light Orchestra – A New World Record (1976) 9:50pm ET

ELO-NWRA New World Record is the sixth studio album by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in 1976.   The album included the hit singles “Telephone Line”, which became the band’s first gold US single, “Livin’ Thing”, and “Do Ya” (US); and “Rockaria!” (UK). “Do Ya” was an ELO updating of The Move’s late 1972 final US single on United Artists Records. The focus is more on shorter pop songs, a trend which would continue throughout the rest of ELO’s future albums. In 1977, many of the album’s songs were featured on the “Joyride” soundtrack. In 2006, the album was remastered and released with bonus tracks on Sony’s Epic/Legacy imprint. “Surrender” was also issued as a promotional single and an iTunes download single, which entered the top 100 download chart. – Wikipedia
