Discography of Electric Light Orchestra LPs & CDs issued in the USA.

Due to the size of the USA and number of pressing plants around the USA, it is nearly impossible to collect all the various label variations. So instead listed are the known various label variations and issues by catalogue numbers of American issued ELO studio albums, compilations live albums and box sets.

Not included are non-official Live CDs or LPs, or Cassette Tapes as these were to easy to pirate and make

non-official copies of.

USA CD Long Boxes 

Almost all CD’s issues in the USA were released in a long cardboard boxes, because It seems that the US record shops clerks were a bit sceptical about the new CD format and didn't want to change their record racks.

With the 12” high & 6” small long CD Boxes they could put two CD’s in one LP rack, plus maybe shop lifting might be more difficult with a long box.

This carried on till about 1990/1991/1992 when the US record industry turned against it. Because of ecological reasons & decreasing the costs for a CD.

"No Answer",  "Electric Light Orchestra II" and "Xanadu"  CDs were not issued/did not come in long boxes, or at least none have been found yet !
