Although the track lists states "Complete Version" on track 8 (Roll Over Beethoven), the disc actually only plays the 7" single edit.  The time is also missing on the track list inside the booklet.

Notes

In 1991 EMI issued a double-CD set in a Jewel Case, available all over Europe. "Early ELO 1971 - 1973" (CDS 79 7471 2) was a sort of an answer of EMI to CBS' "Afterglow",

To release before unreleased material, was something new to E.L.O. since "Afterglow" and EMI wouldn't take the chance to do so in a large way either. "Early ELO 1971 - 1973" also was released as a double cassette, with Whisper In The Night mistakenly entitled as Alternate Take on the sleeve. The likewise extravagant design had a 3-times foldout MC-insert featuring the complete story of the CD-booklet.
