1985 UK 10-track CD album manufactured
by NIMBUS ENGLAND and printed in England.
Released with the original "floral" rear insert.
Complete edition with "Into The Groove" track.
There are only two official UK-made CD albums: "Like A Virgin"
and "True Blue". This one
states "Printed in England" on the sleeve and also "Manufactured by
Nimbus, England" on the CD & sleeve. This is the English pressing of
"Like A Virgin" printed and
a single batch when "Into The Groove" was first added to the album in 1985. The normal German pressing plant which presses all
of Madonna's CD albums didn't have time to change the design
to incorporate the new song to deal with the demand so Nimbus
were drafted in to cover the gap with a single batch of pressings.
Once the German plant was able to change the design and start
re-pressing the new 10-track CD the rear sleeve was changed to
the dull white rear sleeve which was used up until the recent
re-masters. What this has meant is that a single batch came out
with the old style 'floral' rear design but with the 10 tracks.
This is not to be confused with the US floral rear 9-track CD
for example as that is standard. The UK one, with the full
10 tracks is very scarce! It is also pressed of much shinier silver
card of a much higher quality than the US one.
