    Can anybody enlighten me if there is any systemized systematic system / sequence for logos printed on old West German/German (not US or French) London CDs?

    I am talking non-classic (popular music) releases

    As far as I understand there are 4 types
    1 - Blue and red, with frame, ancient font
    [​IMG]
    Appeared, for example, on
    David Bowie s/t , first pressing [800 086-2]
    John Mayall Bluesbrakers with Eric Clapton (Beano album), first pressing [800 087-2]
    Rolling Stones s/t, second pressing [820 047-2]
    Apparently, was used in 1983-1984

    2 - Black and red, ffrr
    [​IMG]
    Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet, first pressing [800 084-2]
    Rolling Stones s/t, first pressing [820 047-2]
    Apparently, 1984???

    3 - Blue and red, with frame, old font (Rolling Stones fans know it as 'Old logo')
    [​IMG]
    On most CDs issued by PolyGram in 1984-1985, PDO in 1986-1988??? and PMDC in 1993-1994???

    4- Blue and red, w/o frame, modern font (Rolling Stones fans know it as 'Modern logo')
    [​IMG]
    Most of the CDs issued by PDO in 1989-1991??? and PMDC in 1992-1993???

    Am I right or there is no system at all?

    If anybody were to know all about this, it'd be either Lukpac or Andreas. I imagine either one will be along shortly.

    The top one is similar to mine - but there's no white between the blue/red. And mine also has the London ffrr logo.
    I can post a scan later.

    That is London from West Germany.

    But I asked a different question

    Let me illustrate it this way.

    The Rolling Stones - The Rolling Stones - London 820 047-2
    First pressing (June 1984), matrix 820 047-2 01#, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD) came with Logo #2
    [​IMG]
    Second pressing, variant 1 (September 1984??), matrix 820 047-2 01#, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD), logo #1
    [​IMG]

    Second pressing, variant 2 (September 1984?? or later), matrix 820 047-2 01#, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD), logo #3
    [​IMG]
    Third pressing-old logo, July 1988, matrix 820 047-2 02# MADE IN W.GERMANY BY PDO, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD), logo #3
    [​IMG]
    Third pressing-modern logo, 1989 or later?, matrix 820 047-2 03# MADE IN W.GERMANY BY PDO, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD), logo #4

    Forth pressing-modern logo, 1991-92 or later?, matrix 820 047-2 03# MADE IN GERMANY, (aluminum till center hole, flat CD) logo #4
    [​IMG]
    Forth pressing-old logo, 1992-93 or later?, matrix 820 047-2 03# MADE IN GERMANY, (clear ring around central hole+stacking ring), logo #3
    [​IMG]
    Fifth pressing-old logo, 1994 or later?, matrix 820 047-2 03# MADE IN GERMANY BY PMDC, (clear ring around central hole+stacking ring), logo #3

    The question is - does this system valid for other artists?

    PS. For The Rolling Stones - The Rolling Stones - London 820 047-2 there are a bit more pressings than listed. This is just for an example.
