"Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf."
This disc variation has a plastic center.


"Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf."
This disc variation has a solid metal center, but not the same type as
a PolyGram pressing. There are "rings" that get slightly thinner towards the middle.


front cover of the booklet


Just for fun, here is a scan of the front of the jewel case with the original stickers.
Note the "exclamation point" sticker denoting the midline price.
There is also a price sticker from an "Our Price" store with a retail price
of 7.99 in unknown currency. I'm guessing Pounds Sterling, but that sound a bit
pricey for midprice. Inside this case is the plastic center target disc.


The rear tray insert for the plastic center target disc.
It says, "Manufactured in Germany by Record Service GmbH.
Germany by Record Service GmbH. Alsdorf." Some sort of weird typo, I suppose.
Note the international and French catalog numbers under the barcode.


The rear tray insert for the metal center target disc.
Nearly identical to the above tray insert, except it lacks
the catalog numbers under the barcode.


A later half-target version. It comes with the same back insert
as the plastic center target disc.


An even later half-target version. Note the new catalog number, 7599-25050-2.


The back cover for the second half-target is nearly identical to the target
back cover, with the exception of the spines, which now bear the new catalog number.

Notes: Presumably, this target disc was only distributed in Europe.
It is quite hard to find even in Europe. It was replaced quickly by the half-target
version, which is fairly easy to find.
