Jeff Lynne’s ELO Score Their First #1 Album In 35 Years
It's been a long time coming, but ELO's 'All Over The World – The Very Best Of' has hit Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart for the very first time, over a decade after its original release.
The compilation was originally released in 2005. It has since enjoyed 112 weeks in the Top 100, having been re-released in 2011 and again earlier last month (July 2016), entering inside the Top 5.
After taking Glastonbury by storm with their "legends" slot, ELO's greatest hits album All Over The World has hit a massive sales landmark, reaching 1 million sales, as confirmed by OfficialCharts.com.
Today 'All Over The World' leaps from 7 to Number 1 on the chart, marking ELO's first chart-topping album in 35 years. They previously reached the summit with 1979’s 'Discovery' and 'Time' in 1981."Thirty five years between Number 1 albums! I'm totally amazed", Jeff told OfficialCharts.com. "Thanks to everyone that made it possible".
