Jeff Lynne is well known for his work with Roy Wood in the Move and the Electric Light Orchestra. Jeff did play in another band before he joined the Move; Idle Race.
Jeff's first record with Idle Race was "(Here We Go 'Round) The Lemon Tree" written by Roy Wood. The single doesn't hit the charts. Idle Race tries again and released "The Skeleton And The Roundabout", "End Of The Road" and "I Like My Toys". None of the singles sells but together with the flipsides they got half an album and so all of them can be found on "the birthday party" from 1968.
