After WEA lost the distribution rights to Rolling Stones Records, Columbia acquired
those rights, and began issuing LPs, cassettes and CDs. Many titles on CD were pressed in
Japan for US release in the USA. I don't know whether these are the first pressings or if
they are just spot pressings when DADC didn't have enough capacity to meet the demand.
All the Japanese pressings are quite scarce, which points to spot pressings.
Around the same time (1986ish), CDs were also issued in Europe and Japan, the first pressings
of which were manufactured in Japan.
The front cover of the eight-page booklet differs in several aspects.
Page eight states "Printed in U.S.A."
Rear tray insert "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
Nothing is printed on the reverse.
