UP36313: Turn To Stone Twist

#1,185: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Regular (and irregular) visitors to elobeatlesforever (elobf) will doubtless be aware that we have featured - from "Time" to "Time" - the 'missing' 1978 Jet/CBS re-issue of ELO's Jeff Lynne penned "Turn To Stone" b/w "Mister Kingdom" single (SJET103), which peaked at #18 in December 1977 initially as Jet/UA UP36313.
Most 7" copies of "Turn To Stone" looked like this
It therefore came as a surprise earlier this week to hear from avid ELO collector Matt McGough that he had just acquired what he believes to be a very rare original issue copy of "Turn To Stone" (UP36313) with a solid centre. Although Yours Truly KJS is still reasonably sure that I did see a SJET103 at the HMV shop in Wolverhampton back in the day, this "Discovery" is a welcome reminder that collecting ELO (and related) vinyl is still very much rewarding. For completeness, here are those previous elobf articles on the subject of SJET103 thus:

Yours Truly KJS and elobeatlesforever (elobf) would still like to hear from anyone with a physical copy of that SJET103 single or even one of those acetates. Photographs would be much appreciated! With many thanx to Matt McGough for highlighting this fantastic find and images.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 23-Oct-2016
