Notes

Jet / UAG Re-Issue 1976 as Jet Records bought the rights of the Warner Brother Issued Albums. 

Jet label with yellow/white light beams. With thick paper/cardboard inner sleeve with printed lyrics. Marketed by United Artists

ELO albums were originally distributed by United Artists's. However Jet, the record company and the band sued United Artists for producing 'defective' copies of Out Of The Blue, and using an escape clause moved to CBS in May 1978, where the LP was repressed without the defects.

Jet records then proceeded to re-issue all the ELO albums and some ELO singles using CBS as a distributor but at first still using the old UAR record labels until a new Jet / CBS label and a new brighter design with the yellow light beam over the pink light beam was designed.

1st re-issues used Catalogue Number JETLP 202 / UAG 30091 with yellow & white light beams on the label. Early issues had the LP title above the ELO name.

2nd re-issues used used Catalogue Number JETLP 202 with yellow & white light beams on the label.

3rd re-issues used used Catalogue Number JETLP 202 with yellow & pink light beams on the label.
