Notes

ELO's first compilation album issued with plain white inner sleeve, no lyric sheet.

 

Mono design except for the front sleeve that had coloured album sleeves. The liner notes on the back featuring producer credit for Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood plus info on Strange Magic being a forth coming single.


Second regular Issue in November 1976 with the same cat.no. UA-LA-630-G, but with edited versions of ROB and Kuiama, but the LP label listed the (wrong) full length track times. Plus it had new and different info about Strange Magic (which by then was a hit single).

Promo / DJ issue in 1976 in golden vinyl with sheet for D.J's

This Tri-colour Set was only made in a very low limited number for the Bicentennial of the USA in 1976 and are very rare.

There was two very different label layouts issued.
