#1,432: As exclusively revealed in this April elobeatlesforever (elobf) article, the folks at Jeff Lynne revealed earlier today that one of two boxed sets of Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) UK 7" singles (in replica sleeves) will be released on Friday 21st September 2018. The set will recreate all sixteen ELO 45RPM singles from "10538 Overture" b/w "First Movement (Jumping Biz)" (originally Harvest/EMI HAR5053) in 1972 all the way through to 1978 with "Sweet Talkin' Woman" b/w "Bluebird Is Dead" (originally Jet/CBS SJET121) and also includes The ELO EP(originally Jet/CBS ELO1), ensuring a bumper Summer for ELO vinyl collectors following in the wake of the almost 2LP edition of "Secret Messages" - minus "Beatles Forever" - seven weeks earlier on Friday 3rd August. Accurately reproduced sleeves and a return to their original labels also appeal.
