Secret Messages Enters UK Vinyl Chart Top 10

#1,436: Quite a few interesting happenings occurred in the elobeatlesforever (elobf) whilst Yours Truly KJS was out of the country recently and one of those was the entry of ELO's 2LP "Secret Messages" reissue in the Official UK Vinyl Albums Chart at a respectable #7 on Friday 10th August after peaking at #49 in the Official Midweek Album Chart four days earlier (based on decent pre-order numbers). Whilst it's pleasing to see "Secret Messages" return to the chart as a vinyl only release, one can only wonder whether the inclusion of "Beatles Forever" and/or a CD issue would have also elevated it not only in the vinyl chart but also helped it return to the Official UK Top 100 Album Chart a little over 35 years after its original 1LP launch back on Monday 6th June 1983 ...

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 16-Aug-2018
