ELO LP & CD Box Sets USA issued.
Due to the size of the USA and various pressing plants around the USA, it is nearly impossible to collect and show all the issues. So instead, listed below are the known details of ELO's "Box Sets" Compilation album issues on LP & CD in the USA.

Catalogue

Z4X 36966

Issue Date

1980

Chart Position

Notes

Box set that contains 3 complete albums, A New World Record, Out Of The Blue, and Discovery on Jet Records.

The first issue got four coloured LP inner sleeves and comes with free Jeff Lynne 1 sided single, Doing That Crazy Thing.

The later issues came with white inner sleeves and no single (there was a white sticker attached on the sleeve hiding the single announcement)

Several issues come without the single, with one, two, or three white inners and sometimes without the white sticker but was still sealed. It seems that CBS wanted to give away their stock of inner sleeves !
