This clip is dedicated to the memory of "Kelly Groucutt" (bass player & backing vocalist). Rest in peace cowboy you will be sadly missed :-( but your mark in history we will strive to revive!
Yes with fully remastered audio & video this is easily the best version of this 70's classic yet! Hope you enjoy :-)
To hear it in glorious "stereo" go to:
"Turn to Stone" is a song by the Electric Light Orchestra.
The song is the opening track to the double album Out of the Blue. It was the first song released as a single from the LP. The single reached #18 in the U.K. charts and stayed there for 12 weeks. Out of four singles from from the album, "Turn to Stone" was the only song not to reach the top ten in the U.K. singles charts. The song was slightly more successful across the Atlantic, reaching #13 in the U.S.
The song was composed in Switzerland during Jeff Lynne's two week writing marathon for his double album. Lynne played the moog bassline of the song.
On November 4 2008, Jeff Lynne was awarded a BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc) Million-Air certificates for "Turn To Stone" for having one million airplays.
The song featured in the Doctor Who episode "Love & Monsters" (2006), along with "Mr. Blue Sky" and "Don't Bring Me Down", both of which were performed by characters in the episode.
The song is also featured in the movie Detroit Rock City.

You wont make a profit on something that cannot be purchased but enough exposure may well help sell what you actually do have for sale. Meanwhile to share ones talents is the greatest of gifts!
Please also be aware that all videos uploaded to YouTube are format shifted by the host website from the original files. This can often cause picture & sound deterioration (i.e. mono audio) as well as the occasional video/audio synchronization issue. The files are also deliberately layered on our end with logos and artists links in order to prevent YouTube recycling by lazy up-loaders, while at the same time helping to promote the artists themselves!
