This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is a promotional copy of the 1976 compilation LP Ole ELO by the Electric Light Orchestra, pressed on yellow vinyl.

This album has a slightly different cover from the later commercial release, with the title in a different font and with all of the album covers on the front in black and white.

About this copy: This copy of Ole ELO is a 1976 pressing on the United Artists label.

The cover is VG++, with slight discoloration at the right hand corners.  The cover still has the original shrink wrap.

The yellow vinyl disc is M- and may be unplayed.

A nice copy of a scarce ELO LP.

Background:  Ole ELO was originally issued in 1976 only as promotional item, intended to get radio stations to increase play of the band’s music.  The album was pressed on yellow vinyl to attract the attention of radio programmers, and quickly became a popular collector’s item, as the album was then the only available colored vinyl ELO album.

United Artists took note and decided to release the album commercially, with a slightly changed cover (promo copies have all black and white artwork; the stock copies show the album covers in color.)

Ole ELO sold reasonably well, reaching #32 on the American album charts.
