Among my latest acquisitions is a very rare Japanese Target CD pressing of Led Zeppelin “IV”. Shown below, this disc bears the original European catalog number of 250 008. The disc was pressed at the CBS/Sony plant, as evidenced by “CSR COMPACT DISC” repeating in the plastic ring. The matrix code is “DIDZ-10058 31A3”.
Based on the catalog number, this disc is believed to be an early European issue. The red coating with “aluminum” text and aluminum target squares was only used on a handful of Target CDs. In my experience, this is one of the rarest Target CDs.
