Notes:
Originally conceived by Jeff Lynne as a double LP, 18-track album, but finally released as a single one. Vinyl releases consisted only of 10 tracks: song "Time After Time" was included as track 5 (of 11) only in Cassette and CD releases. Remastered re-releases from 2001 added 3 more tracks as bonus. In 2018 the album was released as originally intended (double LP), although omitting the track "Beatles Forever".

plain white inner sleeves, missing lyrics and credits are a real downer. Hey, that's what makes a whole package. But this is cheap, it's a scam.

I've got this issue, but with the "star" only above SIDE 1. Above side 2 is only the band-Name "elo".Is on the issue, which is here presented, really a "star" above "SIDE 2" ???

This 1990 Japan re-issue does not contain Pre-Emphasis
It also uses the US single mix of Rock 'N' Roll Is King

Hmmm. The only thing different on mine is the barcode: 8 86974 90602 5.
