This 2LP release adds six tracks to its running order, all with cutting-edge synthesizers as well as up-front guitar mastery. Pre-order here: https://lnk.to/SecretMessages"
elobf: Secret Messages 2LP & ELO Singles Box Soon?
I said in this elobf article that "A 2LP "Secret Messages" without "Beatles Forever" would be the strangest of compromises" and I still hold that opinion.
