Mr Blue Sky (Charity Single)

Earlier this year I got asked to play the guitar parts for a re-recording of ELO’s monster hit ‘Mr Blue Sky’.

The proceeds of the recording were to go to a Cancer Research charity, after the sudden death of a local father. His two sons thought it’d be a great idea to record his favourite song, ‘Mr Blue Sky’.

The lovely guys at Vale studios got involved and put a group of musicians together to perform the backing as close to the original as possible, with the vocals being provided by the son’s entire school year. The final result sounds awesome, and is raising some much needed money for a really great cause. It even got Jeff Lynne’s approval!

Have a look at the video here,

and if you’d like to buy a copy to help raise as much as possible, then copy and paste the links below:
