27) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Electric Light Orchestra-'Eldorado'
Since Jeff was the guest co-host for this show, I tried to find an album by an artist that we both enjoy. Electric Light Orchestra fits that bill, and we've pretty much played all their big albums at this point, but this album is the point where ELO started to really gel. Their fourth album, and a concept album; a rock opera as it were. Some fans have the opinion that this is their crowning moment. I do love it, but the six albums that follow it cement Jeff Lynne as a legendary songwriter and composer. It's an important album in their discography for sure. "I can't get it out of my head, oh no no no" - Michael - MFL
28) James-"Sayonara" From the album 'Wah-Wah'.
