|ORIGINAL XANADU SCRIPT
The good folks at the ELO/Jeff Lynne site ELO/Discovery has
struck again with more Xanadu-related downloading goodness
This time, it's the original script of Xanadu. I personally have not
combed through this version as of this posting (at least to
compare this to my version which I've lost track of WHAT draft it
is!!). Needless to say, there's enough to keep us fanboys and
You can download it from the sites download page HERE!
ELO has a long history of putting hidden messages in many of
their albums. They even released 'Secret Messages' in 1984
that had a goofy messages in every track.
Robert Porter of the Jeff Lynne Song Database had combed
through these titles and has listed many of these "codes" in a
new page of his site called 'Exposing The Secrets'.
....and, yes, Xanadu is caught up in this audio word play. You
can read the evidence HERE!
|XANADU BLUE-RAY (not what you think it is)
Are you getting impatient with Universal Studios on WHEN they
will release a Blue-Ray version of Xanadu?
The way things are going, you might have to (politely) nudge
them. Here's a link to the studios 'Conract' page to do that
In the community of Longmont, CO, Gary Beck is
making a call for investment to build a skating rink
closely fashioned after the one in the movie. The
estimate is $15 million dollars.
For more details, HERE'S an article from the local
newspaper. Mr. Back has also set up a web for this
project and you can find it HERE! (NOTE: the
newspaper article messed up on this link)
Good luck, GARY!!!!!
|XANADU ANNIVERSARY SCREENING!
(unofficial, of course)
There will be an unofficial anniversary screening of XANADU on

St, Long Beach, California. There will also be an ELO tribute
band as a warm up starting at 7:30.

Bring a camera! We would love to see how this turns out!
Have been adding and correcting "stuff" this site this week.
Swing on over to the ODDS & ENDS & OTHERS page and see
'Billboard Reviews' and the additional page added to the
SWING album section.
Also, the LINKS page has been updated, with a couple of links
sadly dropped due to inactivity, including the official site for
Xanadu On Broadway. Note: Steve Hoffman's Music Forum's
'Xanadu Soundtrack's thread is so big that they had to split it in
half. Both are linked.
