Originally Harvest releases in 1971 and 1973 respectively, "The Electric Light Orchestra" (SHVL797) - also known as "No Answer" in the US due to a misunderstood secretarial gaffe - and "ELO 2" (SHVL806) were translated from gatefold to single album sleeves under the Fame imprint, being distributed by Music For Pleasure. Oddly enough, "ELO 2" (FA3003) was released first in May 1982 with "The Electric Light Orchestra" (FA3084/FA4130841) following in November 1983, replete with early barcode. Note also the change in publishing rights from April Music Ltd. to CBS Songs Ltd. in the ensuing 18 months betwixt the duo. Both were essentially Harvest pressings with original catalogue number quoted on the labels and retained in the run-out grooves. Both were also purchased by an eager teenage version of Yours Truly KJS whilst remaining a treasured part of my Electric Light Orchestra CD/LP collection to this day.
