The Electric Light Orchestra
« on: March 05, 2007, 08:28:00 AM »

Remember the album "Out Of The Blue"?

Turn to Stone
It's Over
Sweet Talkin' Woman

Well somehow, someway, I ended up with a copy of the re-released re-issued CD with bonus tracks, now I want you to understand I am not quite sure how it happened, I think I bought it at a swap meet from a Muslim gentlemen named Al-Zwahari, because quite frankly I do not condone the illegal practice of copying anything due to the strict FBI anti piracy laws.

Without the legal consent of the commisioner of baseball of course.

So, there you have it, if you want it PM me your REAL name and address and I will mail it to you this very day.

I love that song-it's so '70s. I especially like the violin solo opening. ELO made the violin cool well before the DMB did.

Well, cool enough to be used in a rock band. Grin FWIW, Paganini, one of the first virtuoso violinists, was like Hendrix, Page, Ozzy, and Darth Vader rolled into one.

Excerpt from http://www.brick.net/~jill/music/paganini.html:

Quote
Paganini began touring Europe when he was in his early forties. At the time, no one had ever seen or heard anyone, or anything, quite like Paganini. For a time, Paganini capitalized on this difference by encouraging the rumors of his supernatural abilities. It was common for him to arrive at a concert in a black coach drawn by black horses. Paganini himself would wear black. Schwarz states that Paganini would enter the stage late, like a non-terrestrial creature, and bow to the audience(Great Masters of the Violin 181). Paganini's stage presence increased the rumors of his dark affiliations and the rumors soon became outrageous. One of the most popularized reports explained his extreme dexterity with one string. Schwarz explains that many believed Paganini had been imprisoned for a love affair with only his violin for company. One by one, the three upper strings broke, leaving only the G-string. Paganini soon learned to play on the G-string alone because of his imprisonment (Schwarz 176). Paganini tried to dispel these myths later in his career, but it was too late. Paganini became known as a "technical wizard" (Schwarz 179).

Paganini's technique was outstanding and unusual, but it was his satanic bearing which caused great crowds to attend his concerts. Schwarz states that "It was more than technical wizardry that attracted the masses: there was a demonic quality as well as an enticing poetry in his playing" (Great Masters of the Violin 181). One instance of superb technique being mistaken for supernatural guidance was the "duel" between Lafont, a famous French violinist of the time, and Paganini. Lafont had volunteered to give a joint concert with Paganini; however, people gained the impression that the concert would be a contest. Paganini was the unofficial "winner" of the contest. Schwarz states that Paganini "won" by improvising during the concert by adding octaves, thirds, and sixths (Great Masters of the Violin 172-173). Paganini was always eager to showcase his technique. Sachs states that Paganini, at a concert in Paris in 1832, played his Sonata a movement perpetual at an amazing twelve notes per second (Virtuoso 33). Most people find it difficult to imagine twelve notes in one second. Paganini managed to play twelve notes in the same amount of time it takes for most musicians to read twelve notes. Paganini's talent extended from the mere mechanics of technique to innovations in technique.

I bet he had his fair share of groupies. Grin

All I can say is that someone with class, and taste, and a deeper understanding of what classic rock truly is...

...stepped up and wanted the CD.
