I had a very good hunting last past week. I have received a two rare CDs.
Phil Collins - Hello, I Must Be Going! WEA, Cat# 299263. Silver disc with a PolyGram matrix style code but the actual disc, however, was manufactured by RSA plant in Alsdorf on a Toolex equipment.
Genesis - Same S/T ("Mama"), Atlantic, 7 80116-2 (163383D), Mfd. for RCA Direct. A club issue where the actual disc is manufactured by PDO U.S.A. and it has a solid silver centre. I also have the same copy, but the disc was made in West Germany. Thanks so much to Corey for this variation.
The past week was very good considering CD purchase. I manage to find:
Genesis - A Trick of the Tail, Virgin/Charisma CDSCD 4001 manufactured by Disctronics in the UK. No barcode issue. Phil Collins - Face Value, Atlantic 16029-2. The disc has been manufactured by DENON USA, but has WEA Mfg. markings on the CD. Phil Collins - Hello, I Must Be Going! Atlantic 80035-2 (x2). The discs were made in West Germany for USA market. This seem to be Columbia House release. The first copy seem to be wrongly mastered (matrix ends on 04#) and WG plant re-press the disc again with correct timing (matrix 05#)
I bought very recently: Genesis - Invisible Touch, A2-81641, Atlantic for Columbia House. The disc was manufactured by ShapeOptimedia INC. USA. As all "Invisible Touch" pressings for Columbia House, this one has DIDY 710 printed on the CD. A rare pressing. I've seen the CD once on ebay, a couple of years ago. After a long time searching I haven't find the disc though. Last week a friend of mine, from the USA offered me a copy. I was very happy when I hear from him.
Finally got manage to find Genesis "Invisible Touch" pressed by JVC Disc America. I already have JVC pressing for RCA Direct. The CD on the bottom is a retail issue. I think this is a rare pressing. Compared to other CD pressings, of this title, JVC USA discs aren't common (at least on eBay).
