This same disc face can be found (with a lot of patience) with MADE IN W. GERMANY BY PDO (c)

There is also another disc variation with MADE IN WEST | | GERMANY on the front and

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


Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany." with old logo, and barcode.
"9 60260-2" is printed on the reverse.
Notice that the spines don't mention the actual title of the disc.
There is also a tray card that says "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf"
that was issued in Europe. I don't have a picture yet.


This exact disc and packaging was issued in Japan with a sticker obi as
38XP-40. This is what that CD looks like with obi attached.

Notes: This disc is fairly common.
