Showdown is the third single by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). It is in some cases submitted by their LP album On the Third Day. The song was not on all pressings put down. In the compact disc era , the song was pressed on all versions. To the British in 1973 to accommodate, the song was "raised" to title track from the first compilation album by ELO.
The B side was formed by In old England town and that number comes from ELO 2. It makes this single somewhat special. ELO2 was recorded with and medegeproduceerd by Roy Wood. Just after the recording of that album went further in/with WizzardRoy Wood. On the Third Day is recorded without Wood. In old England town got a bijtitel Boogie No. 2, later was renamed, in which case the number again to Jeff's boogie No. 2.
In particular, let hear Showdown ELO that her future music was trying to find, a tight rhythm with a Classic touch. John Lennon could appreciate the number though; He was made ELO the rightful successor of The Beatles.
The single took out in most countries moderate markings in the charts. Outliers were there in Norway and the United Kingdom.
