The List Of

XANADU

By ‘Brian’

The following list was compiled by “Brian” from the late and lamented ‘Xanadu Memorabilia Room’ web site. It is believed to be the most definitive list of Xanadu material ever made. Small portions of this has been either updated or corrected. We thank Brian for the hard work he put into this list and hope he’s doing well…wherever he may be….

IMPORTANT POST SCRIPT (in other words, a appeal):

Before we wrap this list up, the Xanadu Preservation Society would like to add an important message about a true rarity. For many years, there has been rumors and/or pieces of evidence of a (approx.) 4-hour video filled with ‘Xanadu’ outtakes, deleted scenes and production shorts. As a whole this video has been elusive holy grail for many collectors (including yours truly-Don-O). If anybody has information leading to getting a very good copy or willing to make a copy for us, please let us know at our e-mail address at donothe13th@yahoo.com. Your name will be confidential! Thank you VERY much!
