MADE IN WEST GERMANY BY POLYGRAM
No disc variations that I know of. Note the lack of the outer mirror band.
Thus far, I have not located a copy with an outer mirror band.
Matrix number: 7599 25305-2 2895 608 01 *
Known suffixes: AD [SN], V [XB], [illegible]
Front cover of the sixteen-page booklet
Page 14 states "Printed in U.S.A."
Rear tray insert "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
I have yet to find a back inlay that was printed in West Germany, and there may not be one.
This same back inlay was used for all early pressings, including a West German non-target,
the Japanese target, Japanese non-target, and US non-target pressings. It is impossible
to tell which disc you are getting without opening the jewel case. Of course, if you
spot one in an old smooth-edged jewel case, there is a good chance you will find a Japanese or
West German target pressing. There is nothing printed on the reverse.
Notes: This disc is quite hard to find, much harder than most Talking Heads targets.
It does turn up once in a while, however, so be patient.
