1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 15 have the ELO band name in a curly font and a different text layout compared to 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 16 which have the ELO band name in a straight font plus have "S" added to the catalogue number.

Numbers 1 + 2 are the same pressing/moulding, just with the A + B sides & labels being swapped around.

Numbers 3 + 4 are the same pressing/moulding, just with the A + B sides & labels being swapped around.

No 12 was Made in France for the UK market, due to overload of the british pressings plants and the high sales of the single in the UK.

Many miss-label copies exist with a mixture of S JET and just JET cat number along with curly font labels and straight font labels on different sides.

For example the image here in the sleeves are scanned from the same record.

No 15 is VERY rare, having the band name in curley font issued on a 4 prong push out. Only seen one copy in 40 years of collecting ELO
