Lynne began his career in the late '60s as the frontman of a group called the Idle Race, which recorded the album The Birthday Party for RCA in 1969.
In 1970, Lynne accepted an invitation from Move leader Roy Wood to join his revamped band; the two shared a vision of fusing electric rock & roll with classical orchestrations, a concept that eventually transformed the Move into the Electric Light Orchestra (instead of the two groups running concurrently, as had originally been planned).
In recent years, Lynne's most prominent work has been with his main influences, the Beatles, on their Anthology series; the reconstructed "Free as a Bird" bore his unmistakable stamp, and he has also worked with Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney (Flaming Pie) individually.

In 1970 Jeff Lynne left the band in order to join The Move, then a very popular and successful band in Britain, accepting Roy Wood's second invitation, who promised his old friend Lynne to launch a new project, called The Electric Light Orchestra, which had been on his mind for a couple of years.
Despite this commercial success, Jeff took the movie's failure very badly and came to loathe his involvement with the film, since it finally destroyed any pitiful remainig shreds of credibility that the band still might have possessed in the eyes of the public.

After listening to Zoom and speaking with Lynne, it’s quite clear that the music great is happiest when working creatively in the studio, this in contrast to the looming prospect of the masses going wild in the midst of the forthcoming 2001 ELO stadium spectacular.
Lynne had come to New York City to film an upcoming Storytellers special for the music video channel VH1 to be aired in mid June.

Wood and Lynne, aside from being intrigued by this sound (especially where the Beatles were concerned), had each had their own revelations when studio string players augmented their own songs.
By this time, Jeff Lynne was ready to leave ELO and go on to greener pastures, perhaps as a solo artist but more likely as a producer.
In the meantime, Jeff Lynne had been back in the studio working on his follow-up to Armchair Theatre for quite some time, and with the ELO name now back in his possession (and free of the demanding Don Arden contract), he decided to release the new album under the ELO banner.

Lynne's production on the Wilburys also was fine with me, in the context of those songs.
Yes, it does have the Jeff Lynne signiture but I really can't imagine Paul and George (and a tad of Ringo) not being very clear about what they wanted during the process.
