Last Summer or early autumn I prebought an expensive LP reissue of ELO's Eldorado. It was supposed to arrive in December. I haven't received it yet. I can't seem to find any record of my purchase. Does anyone know what company sold these? Has anyone else received this LP? Any help will be appreciated.

Music Direct (see link) own MoFi so if they say it is not released, it is not released. I believe you can also order direct from MoFi. And all the usual suspect dealers will get their copies when it is released.

You can always go on the MoFi site to check release dates/preorder status

 

The MFSL super vinyl (59.99) release has been in my order history since September. , posted on January 5, 2022 at 12:36:02

It's listed as unshipped in my Music Direct order history (have to pull down and select "past year" for it to show up). It's still being advertised as for sale at date TBA so it just hasn't arrived yet from MoFi.

I also heard it was supposed to be shipped in mid December.

Thankfully i got my (ELO) records for 1 euro per on flea markets and in Goodwills over 10 years ago. Recently i found a CD of Out of the Blue for 1 euro. Didn't sound bad to me. I updated my ca. 1988 Sony ES CDP with a PS Audio DAC. Big improvement. The original double Lp I bought NEW in the late 1970s of course wins because of its spectacular foldout cover.

The original "Out Of The Blue" LP was mastered by none other than Stan Ricker., posted on January 6, 2022 at 07:29:36

The mastering is excellent. Jeff Lynne's production and mix isn't bad on OOOB either.

The problem is not that there is evil in the world, the problem is that there is good. Because otherwise, who would care?

It's like swearing in the church here. But Jeff Lynne used all of his 24 tracks to record the usual rock band plus full orchestras and choirs. The CD allows me to hear more of what going on in the mix. And it doesn't wear like the once cheap but now expensive and hard to get LP.

I had the CD and the LP. To my ears, the LP is much better., posted on January 8, 2022 at 06:23:07

The mix for Eldorado was good and mediocre. Some of the songs sound really really good, others not so much.
OOOB is probably the most consistently good out of the ELO records I have. It's also the last ELO record I have, they sounded too much like the Bee Gees on later records.
