There are two variations of this disc. The background color on the one above
is a glossy gray. The one below is matte silver paint, similar to the silver
used on West German Warner Brothers target pressings. It may be hard to tell
the difference in these scans.

Back cover "Printed in Japan" with UPC.
Both disc variations can be found with this back inlay.


Back cover "Printed in West Germany" with UPC.
The glossy gray disc variation can also be found with the West German back inlay.
The first time I ran across this anomaly, I thought someone had just switched cases,
but I have seen this combination two more times.

Notes: This disc is fairly common in the USA. This title was issued internationally on the
Polydor label, so the target disc is not likely to be easily found outside North America.
