This is the most common disc variation, probably the third to be issued.

Later copies are found with "MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO" etched around the center hole (fourth version).


MADE IN WEST || GERMANY on the front, MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO inscribed
in the hub area. Probably the fifth version to be released.


Front cover of the eight-page booklet.
Page six states "Manufactured by
PolyGram in Hanover,
West Germany.
Printed in West Germany
299 169"


Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany" without barcode.
Notice the Atco logo on the back instead of the WEA logo. Also MODERN
is the label on the wings instead of WEA. Also notice that the short biography
that is on the later back inlays is missing here. The disc variation with
MADE IN || WEST GERMANY on the front can be found in this back inlay, and is
probably the first to be issued. All the lettering on the back is in gray scale
which does not reproduce well. The spine lettering is white.


Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany" without barcode.
"299 169" is printed on the reverse.
This tray inlay has the WEA logos and the short biography. The BY POLYGRAM
disc variation can be found with this back cover. I believe it is the second
to be issued.


Back cover says, "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH. Alsdorf
Presse en Allemagne par Record Service GmbH. Alsdorf" in white lettering,
replacing the "Printed in West Germany" on the above inlay. Note also the LC bullet
in the right bottom corner. The PDO disc variation can be found with this back cover.
I believe this is the third to be issued.

Notes: This disc was not distributed in North America, thus it is scarce here.
It is much easier to find in Europe.
