Some times ELO's Warner Bros. (WB) singles are shown in a yellow sleeve. But research has shown that this yellow sleeve was not issued until 1975 starting with record Cat. No K 16599, which is after ELO's WB single's issued.

There are 3 different versions of Ma Ma Ma Belle large hole pressing:

1 . UK pressing with serrated teeth/ring around the label.

2. Holland pressing for the UK without serrated teeth/ring and a larger printed label that covers the entire raised smooth ring.

 

3. Holland pressing for the UK without serrated teeth/ring, but with the smaller UK label, so the smooth raised ring can be seen.
