Companies, etc.



This issue has beige labels and is a later pressing manufactured by Alfa, not Victor as is noted on the earlier pressings labels.
The rear sleeve and obi are also amended slightly to represent that the manufacturer is Alfa.

The mention of 'Also Thanks to Mr Kylyn' on the back cover could indicate that guitarist Kazumi Watanabe performed on one or more tracks but his part was cut out during mixing. The Japanese small print at the bottom of the insert states that 'the guitar channel had to be cut as Nippon Columbia Co., Ltd. didn't give their permission'.

A quick listing of the different Japanese LP pressings (not all are on Discogs as of 13/11/2010):

1) Limited edition clear vinyl, red labels, manufactured by Victor Musical Industries, obi strip has "COLOR RECORD" at the top.

2) 1st press black vinyl (promos exist of this), red labels, white obi strip with red text. Manufactured by Victor Musical Industries.

3) 2nd press black vinyl, pink/purple gradiated labels, red obi strip with black text. This is the most common pressing, manufactured by Victor Musical Industries.

4) 3rd press (1983) black vinyl, light beige labels, same obi strip as No3 but should say (in Japanese) that the record is manufactured by Warner-Pioneer. It does not have that on the label so be careful and learn katakana!

If anyone knows of any more variations please let me know!
