Front cover of the six-page foldout booklet.
Page five states "Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover,
West Germany
Printed in West Germany" (m) or
"Manufactured by PolyGram in
Hanover, West Germany
Printed in West Germany" with a Es Paranza logo (n).


Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
This information is printed in light blue ink near the bottom,
and does not show up well in a scan. This blue paragraph on the above insert
begins "Distributed by Atlantic..." "7 90101-2" is printed on the reverse (y).
Disc variations (a) and (d) come with this tray card. Oddly enough, there is no mention
whatsoever of EsParanza Records anywhere on or in the paper inserts.

This same disc was issued in Japan, with a sticker obi, with the catalog number 38XP-56.
This is what that package looks like with the sticker obi intact.

Notes: This disc is uncommon, but can be found with some effort.
