The most common disc variation, this one has an outer mirror band.

Again, it is hard to read this line against the mirror band.

Here, it is easy to read the bottom line. This disc variation has MADE IN
W. GERMANY BY PDO etched around the center hole. These are the only three disc
variations that I am aware of, except for a rare error that doesn't include the
silver paint so that there are no titles or logos. I wish I had a picture to
show you. James, when are you going to get a scanner?
Front cover of the eight-page booklet
Page seven reads "Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany
Printed in West Germany" in booklets paired with the West Germany / no barcode rear tray insert.
As for booklets paired with the U.S.A. / barcode tray insert, page seven states "Printed in U.S.A."
Rear tray insert "Printed in West Germany" with a blank box where the barcode would normally reside.
Note the bottom line of type says "Printed in West Germany" while two lines up,
it says "Printed in U.S.A." The catalog number, "90067-2" is printed on the back of the insert,
so the former is more likely. Disc variations with outer mirror bands can be found with this tray insert.
Back cover "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
The disc variation without the outer mirror band is found with this tray insert.
Be sure to check the disc first, as it is much more likely that a non-target CD
will be hiding behind this back inlay! Nothing is printed on the reverse.
Notes: While this disc is not terribly hard to find, there is much competition for it.
There also exists a very scarce target version of this title with a different color scheme.
I don't have a picture yet.
