J eff Lynne dusted off “Do Ya” from his days with The Move and gave it new life on A New World Record. I’d be hard-pressed to think of a better example of ELO’s balancing act between rock and grand (or is it grandiloquent?) orchestral production. The B side is “Nightrider” from Face The Music, one of the better songs from that album. In fact, that song was released as a single in the UK, making this something of a tuneful two-fer. ELO singles were unusual in this regard, often choosing B sides from earlier works rather than contemporaneous album cuts.
