MADE IN | | JAPAN (by CBS/Sony)
I have two minor variations. One has a matrix number 32XD-351 11A3 +++++, and has nothing
stamped in the plastic center. The other one has a tiny "CSR" stamped in the plastic center
and the matrix number is 32XD-351 11A5 +++++.
Note that, while the perimeter writing claims, "MADE BY WARNER-PIONEER CORPORATION, JAPAN"
the disc was actually pressed at the CBS/Sony pressing plant.
Other matrix numbers also exist. Here are all the known numbers, in roughly the order in which they were issued:
a) 11A3 +++++
b) 11A4 +++++
c) 11 +++++
d) 11A5 +++++
e) 11A5 +++++ with a tiny CSR embossed in the plastic center.
f) 11A6 +++++ with a tiny CSR embossed in the plastic center.
g) 11A8 +++++ plus barcode-like stuff, with a tiny CSR embossed in the plastic center.
Other matrix numbers may exist.
Front cover of the eight-page booklet.
Page seven has a Warner Bros. logo but there is no manufacturing information.
The 32XD-351 catalog number is on page eight.
Rear tray insert "Printed in Japan" with no barcode.
Only known tray inlay for this target CD.
Note that the inserts are WEA, while the disc is Warner Brothers.
Comes with a 9 5/8" square two-sided fold-out insert with lyrics in English and Japanese.
This sticker obi was issued with this CD.
A Japanese lyric sheet was also included.
Notes: Many years ago, this Japanese target CD was quite hard to track down.
However, a sufficient number of copies have surfaced from Japan,
and the price has come down considerably.
