When Jeff Lynne joined Roy Wood's British band the Move in 1970, it was with the condition that the group blend their basic rock moves with classical music, in a nod to 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.' After recording two final albums with the Move, Lynne and Wood formed Electric Light Orchestra, realizing Lynne's dream of pairing classical instruments (cello, violin, french horn, oboe, etc.) with rock 'n' roll riffs.
