Front cover of the four-page booklet
Page three reads "Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany. 19313-2

Later issues with the USA rear tray insert will have all this replaced with "Printed in U.S.A."


Rear tray insert, "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
I found the disc variations without the PDO inscription in this tray inlay.
On the inside is printed "19313-2"


Rear tray insert, "Printed in U.S.A." with barcode.
I have found both POLYGRAM disc variation in this tray inlay.
Nothing is printed on the reverse.
Note the addition of the artist bio in the colored area. Thw wings and
UPC are also quite different. Common US pressings are more likely to be found in this
tray inlay, so check the disc before buying!

Notes: This disc is surprisingly hard to find, given the popularity of the title.
Outside of the USA, this title was issued on a different label.
