SJET103: The Turn To Stone Reissue Mystery 
#620: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again!

ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] would like to hear from anyone with a physical copy of this ultra rare single - even a picture would be most appreciated!
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 27-Nov-2013
