Front cover of the four-page booklet
Page three reads "Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany. 03373-2
Printed in W. Germany."


Rear tray insert "Printed in W. Germany" with barcode.
All three disc variations can be found with this inlay.
On the reverse is printed "03373-2"


Back cover, "Printed in U.S.A" with UPC.
The POLYGRAM disc variation can sometimes be found in this inlay. Even though the
above inlay is printed in the USA, it is not the same inlay used for the later U.S. non-target pressings.
It can be differentiated by the catalog numbers on the spines, "03373-7" on the targets,
and "3373-2" on the U.S. pressings (see below).

Notes: This disc is somewhat scarce. Expect to search a while.

Although this pressing dates circa late 1980s, it is nonetheless interesting as it is a DADC pressing using
second generation WEA (Specialty Recording Corporation) stampers.

This is the tray card alluded to above. Early USA pressings will be found with this inlay.
