The Virtuoso Handel
Nonesuch E2 79037 (Columbia House)
LP originally released in 1983
made in USA for record club distribution
color scheme: dark bronze background with black target and lettering
genre: classical

MADE IN U.S.A. BY DADC, and stamped in the plastic center is, "Made
in USA - Digital Audio Disc Corp."
Note that the disc is a much lighter bronze than the commercial version.
Note also the DIDY 2740 under the new catalog number, E2 79037, both of
which indicate a Columbia House pressing. This is an earlier pressing
than the disc pictured below.
Thanks to KeithH for the scan.

Note also the DIDY 002740 under the new catalog number, E2 79037, both of
which indicate a Columbia House pressing. The six digit DIDY number indicates
that this disc was pressed well after the target design was (supposedly)
discontinued in the US.


front cover of the booklet


back cover "Printed in USA" with no UPC.
It is hard to tell in this scan, but the color of this inlay is dark brown
while the wings are black.
This back inlay is nearly identical to the West German version, with the
exceptions of the catalog numbers, and the "Printed in West Germany" line is replaced
by "Manufactured by Columbia House under license. Made in U.S.A."

Notes: This disc is even scarcer than the stock version. Seeing as how there were at
least two pressings of the record club disc, there are probably a bunch of these hiding
in classical enthusiasts' CD collections, but so far, they are not coming to the used
market in sufficient numbers.
