Xanadu: Fifth Promo Picture Disc Relisted on eBay

#1,205: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Quite amazingly for an item of which just 31 copies are thought to be pressed, a fifth copy of the ultra-rare 1980 withdrawn 33⅓ RPM US 10" picture disc promo of "Xanadu" by ELO/Olivia Newton-John (MCA Records #MC10384) has just been relisted on eBay this evening having attracted a maximum bid of $4,001 (£3,149) earlier this evening, thus remaining unsold due to it not meeting the reserve price (believed to be around $5,000 or £3,935).

It'll be interesting to see what price it goes for "Second Time Around". You can bid (or watch the bidding) via this link thus: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XANADU-Olivia-Newton-John-RARE-promo-picture-disc-10-ELO
Rare Xanadu 10" Picture Disc Tops Record Collector Guide (April 2015)

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 06-Dec-2016
