Below is the complete Electric Light Orchestra discography including rare imports, videos and hit singles. ELO's back catalogue is unusual in that their compilation albums far outweigh their studio output in number, owing to the large number of hit singles primarily written by Jeff Lynne.


tudio Albums

Below is a table containing basic information pertaining to ELO's studio album output.

Notes: The peak chart listings are accurate but incomplete because of the limited availability of past chart information regarding other countries. All of the RIAA & BPI certifications and/or re-certifications listed are out of date, the majority being decades old. The fact that some albums are listed as non-certified does not necessarily mean those albums have not reached certification sales levels. Record companies that own the manufacturing and distribution rights to a particular record have to pay the RIAA, BPI and related bodies to research, audit and certify that record, whether it be an album, single or compilation.
