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 three CD promos for "Surrender" (2006), "Latitude 88 North" (2007) and the ultra-rare ten track "Reissues Sampler" (for the Sony remasters of "On The Third Day", "Face The Music", "A New World Record", "Out Of The Blue" & "Balance Of Power") up for auction 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
