I've no idea if this is a (slightly different-looking) version of the final US Secret Messages cassette or one of the mythical CBS double album pre-release copies that somehow managed to survive orders for all tapes to be returned and destroyed, but here's something that may be of interest to collectors:
So I'm currently highest bidder! Perhaps let's not get into a bidding war and end up paying a lot more than we're comfortable with? If I win the auction, I'll rip the audio from the cassette and share with you all. No need to fight over the tape. Fingers crossed!
Considering how much this eventually sold for and when it first surfaced, does anyone else think it's possible this really is the promo tape we'd all been hoping for? I'd love to believe the recent 2LP reissue has led to renewed interest in all things Secret Messages, and it will be interesting to see if any further items of similar interest show up over the next few months... On the other hand, I've already requested multiple deadline extensions for my book - it's remarkable how much new information just keeps appearing!

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
