A stunning showcase of production work from Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Just like Abba's "Super Trouper", Xanadu is an album with a rock solid repertoire. The record contains many hits from Electric Light Orchestra and Olivia Newton John.
Olivia gave us "Magic", "Suspended in time", "Suddenly" with Cliff Richard, and the albums best offering "Xanadu". Olivia in combination with The Tubes, swirled together the 1940's cabaret sound of the Andrews Sisters Song "Forget about the Blues", with the electrifying early eighties sound of "Dancin", performed by the Tubes. The mix Jells like dynamite and gives both tracks a whole new sparkle. Jeff Lynne's contribution gave this album it's unique sound, that makes this soundtrack an unforgettable classic. Tracks like "I'm alive", "the fall", "Don't walk away", and "All around the world" were recorded by Electric Light Orchestra.
If I could only take ten albums to a desert island, this would be one of them
