Turn To Stone Tease: Jeff Lynne's ELO Unveil Wembley Video

Perhaps it shouldn't have come as a surprise to elobeatlesforever (elobf) that Jeff Lynne's ELO chose to release footage of "Turn To Stone"  - taken from the forthcoming album/film "Wembley Or Bust" - yesterday (Monday 16th October) via ELOVEVO and The Independent following on from the audio only video and download track made available on Thursday 5th October. But it sure was a poignant choice to this writer.

The reason for the above statement is that "Turn To Stone" has very much a part of my fabric since the age of 10 when Yours Truly KJS bought my first record, "Turn To Stone" b/w "Mister Kingdom" (Jet/UA UP36313) in November 1977. "Turn To Stone" was also the first ELO song that I saw performed live when I saw ELO Part II with The Moscow Symphony Orchestra at Birmingham's NEC in late May 1991. Looking at the new video only whets the appetite for a release that will serve not only as a fantastic souvenir of a great night but also as an excellent introduction to the ELO universe for those folks who are not yet acquainted with all things Jeff Lynne. How apt that this song still grabs my attention after all these years ...

"Wembley Or Bust" by Jeff Lynne's ELO is released on Friday 17th November.


elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends "Wembley Or Bust" by Jeff Lynne's ELO to those enlightened folks who love ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Traveling Wilburys, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 17-Oct-2017
