Frontiers Issued ELO & Jeff Lynne CDs & Vinyl LPs

Starting In 2012 Frontiers Records issued a series of 5  albums in CD & LP vinyl format for ELO & Jeff Lynne as a solo artist.

All the CDs were all made in Italy for the whole world, (except Japan and South Korea) along with the first issue vinyl LP's which were also made in Italy for the whole word. These issues have the catalogue number starting "FR"

But Frontiers Records was too small to deliver to the whole world, so the vinyl LP’s were re-issued in the UK by "Let Them Eat Vinyl" for the whole world. These issues have the catalogue number starting "LETV"

Below is list of all known issued versions. Green Text means Missing From my Collection.

The first issue CD in a Jewel Case used the wrong booklet rear image (taken from the booklet from the cardboard issue) so when folded out did not match up with the front image.

Plus the clear CD inlay tray background image was printed upside down and the Cat Number was missing from the tray edges.

Above errors were corrected in the 2nd Jewel Case CD issue
