Notes

This European pressing of the album was released with advertising stickers in several variations, but all round and white.

All versions included an inner sleeve with lyrics to the songs. The label used was not the standard yellow-orange Sire one but a custom-made for this album.

Some copies issued in France came with an obi featuring a list, in French, of all the countries where the album charted at number 1.

Later pressings (1987) were released with a free giant souvenir poster from the "Who's That Girl World Tour". The presence of this poster is advertised with a round purple sticker. The edition including the poster is listed separately: True Blue.

Lacquer cut at Future Disc which can be identified inside the runout groove.
Record Service Alsdorf used US sons (stampers) - manufactured by Allied Record Company (ARC) - to press them in Germany. 'Metalwork' / 'plating' (fathers and mothers) were made at Sheffield Lab Matrix as subcontractor for the ARC – identified by 'delta' numbers ("△ #####" and "△ #####-X") along with a "-SH#" and the [Allied 'ɑ' logo]-stamp along with the manufacturer matrix numbers B-#####.

One of the most beloved Madonna albums ever, still plays spotless after almost 35 years of conservation.
