Notes

Re-Issue on Black vinyl as Jet Records bought the rights of the Warner Brother Issued Albums. 

Issued on Jet label with white and yellow light beams. With thick paper/cardboard inner sleeve with printed lyrics & band photo, marketed by United Artists.

ELO albums were originally distributed by United Artists's. However Jet, the record company and the band sued United Artists for producing 'defective' copies of Out Of The Blue, and using an escape clause moved to CBS in May 1978, where the LP was repressed without the defects.

Jet records then proceeded to re-issue all the ELO albums and some ELO singles using CBS as a distrubuter. They initially continued to use the United Artists printed sleeves and record labels. Plus Jet catalogue number stickers were often placed over the album cover UA catalogue number.

This continued until new Jet / CBS labels and a new brighter design was used with the yellow light beam over the pink light beam.

1st re-issues used Catalogue Number JETLP 203 / UAG 30092 with yellow & white light beams on the label. Early issues had the LP title above the ELO name.

2nd re-issues used used Catalogue Number JETLP 203 with yellow & white light beams on the label.

3rd re-issues used used Catalogue Number JETLP 203 with yellow & pink light beams on the label.
