3 stars Olé ELO was the second compilation ELO released, this time internationally unlike their earlier compilation under the name Showdown. It basically covered ELO's best hits up through the Face the Music album. For progressive rock fans, only the first three tracks (10538 Overture, Kuiama, and Roll Over Beethoven) are of interest, all full versions. The rest of the material is made up of singles released from On the Third Day through Face the Music.

Overall, it's an enjoyable listen, but since the most important work of this band is it's first three albums, and the aforementioned three prog songs can easily be found on those albums, there really isn't a need to seek this out unless you are a completionist. Overall rating for the selection is three stars. It of course would have been higher if the collection was primarily prog rock material instead of those singles. Good, but not essential.
