Item Description


Michael Jackson Off the Wall CD Japan 35 8P-2 CBS Sony 1B3 1st Press No Barcode



Earliest possible Japan for Europe pressing but with the stylized font instead of the crude. "35 8P-2-6 and 1B3" and "Manufactured by CBS/Sony Records INC" in stacking area. Unique artwork with the blue Quincy Jones logo on tray card and rear of booklet. Original smooth sided case with two wide stoppers "Patent pending" and "1" in lower rear right corner.


CBS / Sony Records opened the first commercial compact disc pressing plant in April 1982 in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Production of commercial CDs got underway in mid-September, and the compact disc was launched in Japan on October 1, 1982.

My grading system(US Goldmine converted to ebays system):



I always grade under a bright light from an angle.
Like New(M-): Very near perfect playing surface and artwork. When held at an angle under extreme lighting you can see perhaps 1 or 2 very light scratches or pin dots.
Very Good(EXC): CDs in this condition look used, but like they were taken good care of. Only a few very light scuffs can be seen when the disc is held at an angle to the light. The booklet and inserts are present and have only a few very minor flaws such as a slight bend or light fingerprints
Good(VG+): No more than 10 very light to light scratches between 1/8" and 2". Artwork has case dents or a crease. Plays perfectly.
Acceptable(VG): CDs in this condition are more for listening to than collecting. The disc is heavily scratched but can be played through without skipping. The booklet and inserts are present but heavily worn, and may include heavy fingerprints, bent corners, smudges, creases, case dimple marks, and writing.
