Down Under Discovery: Wembley Or Bust in Jewel Case

L-R: UK 2CD, UK 2CD/DVD, Aussie 2CD/DVD ...
When it was announced that "Wembley Or Bust" by Jeff Lynne's ELO was on the way back in early October, Yours Truly KJS and elobeatlesforever (elobf) - like many ELO fans - got rather excited. The album - and accompanying film - turned out to be a remarkable release both in terms of its visual and audio narrative of the most iconic of concerts held at the home of English football. Made available in digital, 2CD (19075800742), 3LP (88985487421), 2CD/DVD (88985492222) and 2CD/Blu-Ray (88985492232) formats, the "Wembley Or Bust" Deluxe editions released in the UK, including the aforementioned film, came in an open-out soft pack somewhat larger than the standard CD jewel case making it tricky to store for collectors such as myself!
Australian edition has internal rear mounting for third disc
However, this was not the case (literally) down under in Australia where the 2CD/DVD (19075800722) and 2CD/Blu-Ray (19075800732) editions were issued in a jewel case (see above photos) where all three discs are accommodated and an extra four (4) pages added to the CD booklet meaning that it will fit nicely alongside the UK 2CD jewel case edition (19075800742) and much of my ever growing ELO and related collection.

If you are so minded, you can order the above mentioned Aussie edition of "Wembley Or Bust" in 2CD/DVD and/or 2CD/Blu-Ray formats (within jewel case) from JB HI-FI via these links thus:
