#1,516: Back in 2017, Yours Truly KJS wrote a trio of elobeatlesforever (elobf) articles covering some aspects of the early career of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) on EMI's Harvest label between 1971-73, specifically their three charting singles amongst which was a 7" vinyl rarity created by the abrupt withdrawal of ELO's second UK single "Roll Over Beethoven" (HAR5063).
Roy Wood & Jeff Lynne" beneath the artist name, "Queen Of The Hours" merely states "Vocals by Jeff Lynne" so that there is no credit for Roy Wood.
