There are two pressings of the disc itself. Both likely to be pressed in 1990 with those credited 'Warner-Pioneer Corporation' being the earlier.

The simplest way to determine which pressing you have, is to look at the rear of the accompanying OBI strip. At first sight the titles and credits on the OBI may appear identical. However on the rear of the OBI it will either state 'WARNER-PIONEER CORPORATION' or WARNER MUSIC JAPAN INC. In absence of an OBI or to further qualify, check the disc.

On the disc, again almost identical credits, except for the manufacturer company credits around the outer band of the silver discs between the outer red and black rings and rim/edge.

The earlier 1990 dated Japan pressings state the disc is 'Made By Warner-Pioneer Corporation Japan'. A later 90 or 90's repress??, (after the Time Warner merger and Warner-Pioneer Corporation name change to Warner Music Japan Inc.) state 'Made By Warner Music Japan Inc. A Time Warner Company.'

This Japan pressing was recently counterfeited in the UK, so there's quite a lot of copies of this floating around. I wouldn't touch brand new (especially sealed) copies of the Japan pressing (unless your ordering directly from a Japan seller), as they are likely to be bootlegs. The bootleg although obvious to experienced collectors of Japanese issued Cd's can fool the unaware.
