Third Rare Xanadu 10" Picture Disc Surfaces on eBay

#810: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Another of those ultra-rare 1980  US 10" picture discs of "Xanadu" by ELO featuring Olivia Newton-John (MCA Records #MC10384) has appeared for sale on eBay this week. The withdrawn promo - believed to be one of a batch of just thirty one (31) copies - has already attracted bids up of over $1,000 with the auction due to end on 13th December.
Yours Truly KJS and ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) previously reported that both previous eBay auctions valued this much sought after rarity at $9,105 (£5,760) in 2012 and $6,101 (£3,730) in 2013 respectively. It will be interesting to see what this third auction values the coveted picture disc at. Full details of the item and auction progress can be viewed via this link thus:

STOP PRESS: This item was eventually sold for $5,725 or £3,647 on 13th December!

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 05-Dec-2014
