Gold
Capitaine AbandonnÚ
WEA 240 999
LP originally released in 1986
made in Germany for French market
color scheme: silver stock background with red reticle and black lettering
genre: French pop


Manufactured in Germany by | | Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf with outer mirror band
Matrix number: 229240999-2.2 RS (plus a series of boxes)
A large number "14" is embossed in the plastic center.
There are at least two known variations (not pictured) of this title. Both do not
have the outer mirror band and both have the same matrix number (240 999-2 2896 587 01 *)
as the West German painted target disc. Based on that, I would assume that the pressings
without the mirror band predate the mirror-band pressing. One of the variations has a
large "8" embossed in the center, while the other has a large "18" in the center.


Front cover of the four-page booklet.
No manufacturing info is offered.


Rear tray insert "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf
PressÚ en Allemagne par Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf" without barcode.
Nothing is printed on the reverse.
No variations are known.
The inserts are indistinguishable from those that come with the West German target pressings.

Notes: This target CD did not have much distribution outside of Europe and French-speaking
territories, if any. It is not easy to find even in France.

Jewel case info: (mirror band) heavy ridged six-tab two-dimple case with "WL 5.4" embossed
on one tab and "WL 5.4" embossed on the back portion, inside bottom center.
Eight-prong disc tray embossed "Patents pending W2.2"
