|Electric Light Orchestra chronology|
The compilation favours album versions rather than single versions; tracks such as "Rock 'n' Roll Is King", "Shine a Little Love" and "Boy Blue" are longer. The compilation is sequenced chronologically and is drawn from US singles, sans 3 from Xanadu, with exception of the European hit "Rockaria!" on disc one.
