rare 1984 Japan-for-US CD: MICHAEL JACKSON Off The Wall, Epic EK 35745 (same as Japan for Japan 35.8P-2) . This is the original CD release in the U.S., manufactured by CBS/Sony Japan in 1984. The matrix is: "35 8P-2 81 +++++" (no mother or stamper codes). The center plastic ring is embossed with "CSR Compact Disc" three times (otherwise referred to as CSRx3). This has the original mix of the album (e.g., "Rock with You"). The later US CD's have the remix of "Rock with You" and one other song. This CD is in a nice collectible condition.
Disc: NM; under two strong lights, I can see a couple of really tiny marks near the outer edge of the disc on the non-label side. [PLEASE NOTE that any marks that may appear in the super sized photos below are lint, dust and camera flash and are not scratches or other blemishes.]
Jewel case/disc tray: The original "ribbed-sided" jewel case shows a few light handling marks; the original disc tray is clean with all teeth intact.
More than 50% of my buyers are located outside of the United States, and I welcome international buyers. However, I still reserve the right to refuse to honor bids by buyers from countries where shipment routinely gets lost, damaged or delayed and buyers who have a pattern of nonpayment or negative feedback. Please contact me before bidding should you have any concerns. I also reserve the right to end the listing early if there is no bid on the item, in accordance with eBay policies. GRADING POLICY FOR CDs : I will try to describe the jewel case, front artwork insert, back J-card insert, and the CD as well as I can. I will also try to show photos of those areas of the insert and/or CD that I think would be of special interest to the potential buyer (such as significant wear, tear, crease, writing, sticker, cutout, saw mark, misprint, etc.). As grading can be subjective, please focus more on the photos and my description rather than the grading.
