ELO Holland Pressed and Euro Issued JET label re-issues.

Starting in 1978, JET records manufactured in Holland and re-issued all ELO's albums within Europe, some issue's also appeared with a * Star printed on the record labels. In about 1983/1984 the albums were re-issued with different / less rim text and again a * Star was printed on some of the the record labels.

 

No one seems to know what the *Star stood for or signified !

Below is an attempt to list and show all the different album label versions. If you have any of the missing images, please let me know and kindly send them to me so they can be added to the discography.

In about 1983/1984 all the ELO albums were re-issued by JET Records only with the different / less rim text and again a * star was printed on some of the the record labels. So all new issues got the revised less rim text label, but some old stock labels with the greater rim text may have been used.

 

No one seems to know what the *Star stood for or signified !
