80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

ELO & Olivia Newton-John – All Over The World/Xanadu (France 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 13th August 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980

A. Front

This 1980 France Promo 12” Single is a rare collectors item for both ELO and Olivia Newton-John fans and sells for a nice chunk of change if you have the rare opportunity to find a copy. This promo is one of my favorite and prized possessions from my Olivia Newton-John collection. I hope you enjoy it.

The interesting thing about this particular release is that it contains not only Olivia’s hit single “Xanadu”, but it also contains a continuous mix of ELO’s “All Over The World” and “Last Train To London” as far as I know this mix is only available on this release. Also of note “All Over The World” is an edited version which removes the intro that is found on the LP. “All Over The World” was released hot on the heels of the single “Xanadu” , this was the third Top 20 ELO single released from the 1980 soundtrack, peaking at #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. “Last Train To london” was was taken fom the 1979 ELO album “Discovery” the song was released in the US in early 1980 and peaked at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Xanadu” is performed by the Electric Light Orchestra and Olivia Newton-John. Newton-John sings the primary vocals, with ELO adding “parenthetic” vocals in the style of their other songs on the “Xanadu” soundtrack, along with providing the instrumentation. A rare collaboration for ELO, the single reached #1 in several countries and was the band’s only UK #1 single when it peaked there for two weeks in July 1980. The song peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.
