Prince and the Revolution
Around the World in a Day
Warner Bros. 9 25286 / Paisley Park is the label on the packaging
made in West Germany for US & international markets
color scheme: silver stock background with sea foam green target and lettering
genre: R&B / rock

MADE IN || WEST GERMANY, no manufacturer on disc.
No variations are known. This disc is notable, in that it is the only known
West German target disc without a painted background. There are several such later
(post-unification) German discs, made by Record Service.


Unlike any other target disc, Around the World was packaged in a cardboard picture
cover, housed in a unique longbox, at least for the US market. Above is the front
of the picture sleeve.


Above is the back cover of the picture sleeve, which reads, "Made in U.S.A."
No variations are known.


This is the front of the longbox, with the flap up in the back.
This same packaging was used for the Japanese pressings of this title.
See the separate listing.


This is the inside of the unfolded longbox. Note the picture sleeve in the middle.


This is the back of the unfolded longbox.


Back cover, "Printed in West Germany" with barcode.
Outside the United States, in countries where the longbox was not used, this disc
was marketed in a standard jewel case with this back tray inlay.
Thanks to Kym Miller for this scan.


This is the cover (back & front) of the booklet found with the jewel case version.
Inside the booklet reads "Manufactured by PolyGram in Hanover, West Germany
Printed in West Germany"

Notes: This disc is not easy to track down. Especially in the original packaging,
especially in nice condition. The cardboard packaging is very susceptible to wear.
Plus, many original owners cut down the longbox to fit into a jewel box.
Expect to pay in excess of $25 for a nice complete longbox.
