Notes

In the US, the album was released as Electric Light Orchestra II in a different sleeve, as the "Space-pussy-shot" sleeve from Jeff Lynne and Richard Tandy was too hot for the USA...

 

Very first issue came without lyric sheet (don’t now if it came with a blank inner, or a one sided printed inner, or a double sided printed inner with liner notes)


First re-Issue in May 1973 (3 months later) came with blue tinted paper inner sleeve with band info.
