Offered for sale is a still sealed yellow vinyl copy of the 1976 compilation LP Ole ELO by the Electric Light Orchestra, released only as a promotional item to radio stations.
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.
About this copy: This copy of Ole ELO is a still sealed yellow vinyl pressing, released only to radio stations. As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
NOTE: A few unauthorized copies of this LP were pressed on either red, white, or blue vinyl. While it’s highly unlikely that this is one of those pressings, we cannot rule it out. There are no copies of this promotional album (SP-123) pressed on black vinyl, so the disc inside is going to be either yellow, red, white, or blue. We’d say there’s a 99% chance that it’s yellow.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. The cover has no cut corners, punch holes, or saw marks.
A beautiful copy of a scarce LP and the only sealed copy we’ve ever had for sale.
