Thanks to Kym for this scan and the next one.


Sometimes this nifty sticker will be still attached to the front of the jewel case.
Kym found it with a POLYGRAM/PDO disc with Alsdorf tray inlay.

Notes: This disc is quite scarce. It appears to be primarily a European release,
based on the catalog number, and the fact that the disc has a LC bullet,
and the Hannover spelling in the booklet.
It does, however, turn up occasionally in the used bins in America.
Note that, while there are two entirely different US catalog numbers on the
back inlays above, the US catalog number on the discs is always (US: 03108-2).


This exact same disc was issued in Japan with a sticker obi with a catalog
number of 32XP-96. That number appears only on the obi. Thanks to Jorge for the scan.

Jewel case info: ridged-top two-dimple, eight-prong disc tray.
