PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SUPER AUDIO CD (SACD) NOT A VINYL LP.
A Bold Celebration of Romantics, Escapists, and Dreamers: Electric Light Orchestra's Eldorado Marries Rock and Symphonic Elements, Includes the Aptly Titled Hit 'Can't Get It Out of My Head'.
Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes for Audiophile Quality: Mobile Fidelity 180g Vinyl LP and Hybrid SACD Reissues Play with Previously Unheard Dynamics, Rich Tones, and Bountiful Colors.
Melodic, Beatles-Inspired Tour de Force Features Full Orchestra and Choral Section: Arrangements and Lyrics Transport the Listener to Faraway Horizons. Electric Light Orchestra leader Jeff Lynne did more than figuratively reach for the sky on Eldorado.
Daring to be bold, and creating imaginative worlds that invite the listener to escape the mundane, the visionary composer-musician achieved a multidisciplinary fantasia and, in the process, a prog-rock landmark. Beautiful yet fun, ambitious yet consistent, the concept album celebrates romantics and escapists. A Technicolor escapade marked by lush melodies, fluid crescendos, and an intoxicating blend of energetic rock and orchestral elements, the album weds rich imagery and sweeping sounds in manners that make the two inseparable.
Nearly 50 years later, the work's brilliance can be experienced like never before in cinematic fashion.
Mastered from the original analog master tapes and pressed on MoFi SuperVinyl at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP and complementary hybrid SACD allow the longtime audiophile staple to resonate with incredible dynamics, tones, and colors.
Conjuring the feeling of journeying to different horizons, the record's songs teem with layer upon layer of details, which can now be heard as the producers intended.
Distinguished with in-the-moment presence, grand-scale soundstaging, and instrumental balance, MoFi's Eldorado reissues also benefit from superb separation and immersive atmospherics.
Like the man says, you won't be able to get it out of your head.

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
How do we package your items?
We use specific packaging made for the shipping of our fragile items and we take great care in packaging each item, as safely as possible. We ensure all items have ‘FRAGILE’ markings and we take the time to best select the appropriate box or satchel.
Our vinyl mailers are specifically designed to protect your item and have several layers of carboard to protect the product as well as 'crush zones' to stop bent corners etc.
