WEA 2 51699
original LP release: 1985
made in France for European market
color scheme: sea foam green background with purple reticle and lettering

Made in France by M. P. O.
Matrix number: 2516992 MPO 01.
Note that the background color is quite different from that of West
German WEA pressings.
This target CD can be found with or without "COMPACT DISC MPO FRANCE" plus a number
embossed in the plastic center. 01, 05 and 07 are known. There may be others.
Another variation just has the number "5" embossed in the center four times.


Front cover of the eight-page booklet.
Page eight states "Fabriqué par MPO" and "Imprimé en France par MONTREUIL OFFSET"
which is about the only French to appear anywhere on this package.


Rear tray insert "Printed in France" with barcode.
Note that the word "France" is in different typeface than the rest of the
copyright info. Definitely some cut & paste going on here!
Nothing is printed on the reverse.

Notes: This target CD was probably only distributed in Western Europe, and possibly in Canada.
It is one of the easier French target discs to locate, though it still may take some searching.

Jewel case info: heavy ridged-top six-tab case with two long stopper bars and "3" embossed on one tab.
Eight-prong disc tray embossed "Patents pending" and "1" in a small circle.
