      What an album! Full of singles and life! Original pressings like this sounds amazing especially in the high end.

        There always seems to be some confusion over this edition, with many adamant that it is not Hong Kong but a US release. I think that the confusion occurs because the hype sticker and the wording on the bottom of the reverse of the sleeve (which mentions the New York company address) are very similar to the US editions. However, it differs from the US versions in various ways.

        The most obvious is the fact that this HK edition attempts to remove the words 'Made in USA' from the text on the sleeve reverse by airbrushing the letters with almost the same hue of blue to the rest of the sleeve - however, it's actually slightly darker and the wording can still be discerned, especially in bright light. A cursory inspection merely reveals a gap in the sentence when compared to its American counterpart. Also, extra text occurs regarding US and worldwide publishing rights - this does not occur on other 1986 US vinyl versions.

        Unlike the US editions, there is no bar code - only the US 'club editions' omitted a barcode, but they also added text to the reverse of the sleeve stating 'Colombia House' - this does not appear on this HK edition.

        The pressing plates used for this clear edition feature exactly the same handwritten matrices as those that were used to manufacture the HK picture disc. The single page, double-sided inserts are also the same.

        This edition also features the typically Asian pasted back, tip-on type sleeve which are typically heavier than the American and EU editions. Also, unlike the US edition, there is no matt paper lyrics/credits printed inner sleeve to house the record - instead, the record is held in a plastic, round-ended inner which is the typical design for Far Eastern and Australasian editions of this era. The lyrics/credits are printed on a double-sided glossy insert. This insert is the same style as that included with the HK picture disc. Some of the inserts do actually say "Made in the USA", but some do not which I conjecture is because the wording wasn't removed from some batches before printing.

        Unlike the US editions, the posters do not say "Made in the USA".

        The bottom of the jacket spine does not say "Printed in the USA".

          Really good sounding album quiet, punchy, great artwork reproduction. No brainer for the price.

                Reviewing every record in my collection

                A good enough pressing, it doesn't sound much better than any other reissues. There's a good soundscape and id there are some details to be noticed, but I'm not amazed by the sound itself

                Still I'd say it's the best reissue because of the even bigger poster and nice booklet it comes with

                  Received a warped copy. Cracks and pops on the first side. The sound is overall muffled compared to the 2012/16 edition. Wonder if they created a new master for this. If they did it is not an improvement. Disappointing release in my mind.

                      38 years later I got a sealed copy in perfect condition. Great pressing.

                        My runout matches this entry but Columbia House is not printed on the label. Was the same runout used for non Columbia House pressings?
