Notes

Released as a hard cover booklet and in a normal Jewel Case, with all lyrics and liner notes by David Wild and Jeff Lynne

 

​Mr. Blue Sky CDs were all made in Italy by Frontiers Records for the whole world, (except Japan and South Korea)

The LPs were also only made in Italy for the whole word.

But Frontiers was too small to deliver to the whole world, so the vinyl’s were re-issued in the UK by Let Them East Vinyl for the whole world See HERE

A number of the Italy issues were imported in to the USA, but no changes were made, so the rear covers do not have the USA / FBI copyright notice.

All pictures, graphics, record designs and logos are the property of Jeff Lynne / ELO, this is non profit fan based site .

I would like to thank and credit:
