Fourth Rare Xanadu 10" Picture Disc Surfaces on eBay
#992: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Another one of those ultra-rare 1980 US 10" picture discs of "Xanadu" by ELO/Olivia Newton-John [MCA Records #MC10384] is now for sale over at eBay. The withdrawn 33⅓ RPM promo - believed to from a batch of just 31 copies - has already attracted bids up of over $1,300 with the auction due to end on Sunday 25th October.
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] previously reported that the three earlier eBay auctions valued this much sought after rarity at $9,105 [£5,760] in 2012, $6,101 [£3,730] in 2013 and $5,725 [£3,647] in 2014 respectively. It will be interesting to see what this fourth auction values the coveted picture disc at. Full details of the item and auction progress can be viewed via this link thus:
