Rare ELO Reissue Promos Surface on eBay

#354: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Every now and then some interesting ELO [and related] rarities pop up on eBay. One of those ELO collectibles was the 33 1/3 RPM, 10" promo picture disc of "Xanadu" [1980] which eventually sold for $9,105 [or £5,760] a week or so ago [see: Rare Xanadu 10" Picture Disc Surfaces on eBay].

Hence I was most interested when I stumbled upon these three CD promos for "Surrender" [2006], "Latitude 88 North" [2007] and the ultra-rare ten [10] track "Reissues Sampler" [for the Sony remasters of "On The Third Day""Face The Music""A New World Record"; "Out Of The Blue" and "Balance Of Power"] up for auction, starting at just £5.19 each thus:

Surrender CD promo   Latitude 88 North CD promo
Reissues Sampler CD promo

 Yours Truly KJS is told that these items have been sold for a minimum of £30 each in the past so it will be interesting to see what the final price turns out to be. ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] believes that it is of interest to ELO fans and collectors alike that these items are out there and available ... at a price. Good luck if you decide to bid for them!

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 02-June-2012
