front cover


Back cover says "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf
Presse en Allemagne par Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf" with barcode.
Barely legible, after the word "laws," is "Printed in France." Only known back cover for this disc.


This "half-target" version was also issued in Europe. There are at least two pressings.
This one says "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf" on
the disc face and has the catalog number 925 110.


This is the back cover for the half-target. Note the catalog number is not
exactly the same as on the disc. Hard to see in this scan is the partially visible
words "Printed in France" near the bottom. Evidently, the half-target is the
successor to the French target. See the separate listing.


This is another, even later version of the "half-target" also issued in Europe.
This one says "Made in Germany" at 6 0'clock and has tiny perimeter print in English, German and French.
The catalog number is now 7599-25110-2. The matrix info is "759925110-2 WME" plus lots of various rectangles.
A large "7" is embossed backwards in the plastic center on the obverse, and a tiny "IFPI 080C"
is embossed on the reverse. My guess is this was issued circa 1994-1996.


This is the rear tray card for the above half-target.
It reflects the new catalog number, and adds the French price code "WE 835".
"Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf.
Pressť en Allemagne par Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf."
Again, hard to see in this scan are the obsured words
"Printed in France" near the bottom. The LC "bullet" obscures the old catalog number.
Nothing is printed on the reverse.

Notes: This disc (German target CD) is very hard to find, even in Europe.
Apparently, it had a small press run, before being superceded by the half-target version.
The half-target versions are very common, and may be still available at retail.
