Xanadu: Sixth Promo Picture Disc Up For Auction
#1,562: My good friend Paul Scott has advised KJS/elobf that a sixth copy (out of just 31 known copies) of the ultra-rare 1980 withdrawn 33⅓ RPM US 10" picture disc promo of "Xanadu" by Electric Light Orchestra/Olivia Newton-John (MCA Records #MC10384) has just appeared on eBay with bids invited from $5,000 (£3,650) upwards thus:
Yours Truly KJS and elobeatlesforever (elobf) have reported over the years that this ELO related record (widely regarded as the rarest and most expensive picture disc ever) has previously been auctioned for at least $4,001 (£3,149) in 2016, $5,400 (£3,518) in 2015, $5,725 (£3,647) in 2014, $6,101 (£3,730) in 2013 and $9,105 (£5,760) in 2012 respectively. It'll be interesting to see how much it will go for this time around!
Update: Item sold for $5,000 (£3,650) on Friday 05-Feb-2021
