Monday records...

A New World Record - ELO: I think this is the first ELO record I had, and I couldn't tell you why I even picked it up, but it's among one of my favorite albums of all. It's got Telephone Line, Rockaria! and Do Ya though my favorite is probably Shangri-La. I just love the harmonies and the orchestration and Jeff Lynne's voice. this is one I would crank up whenever i was home alone.

Bernard Herrmann conducts.... : lots of his stuff from movies. I particularly liked the North by Northwest track. and of course the second side is mostly Psycho adapted as a "Narrative for Orchestra". it was fun to watch Roxie's ears perk up at the stabby violin part.
