My CD plays perfect but has an interesting defect.,
This review is from: Radio One (Audio CD)
I purchased Radio One when it was released back in 1990. When I opened the Jewel Case, I found the CD without a label - it was silver on both sides. I put it in my CD player, and it played fine.
At the time I considered returning the disc because it has no label, but I changed my mind, as the disc played fine. Now I wonder if this manufacturing defect makes the disc more valuable. I also wonder if this problem was unique to my disc, or if an entire batch lacked the label.
In any case, this is a great collection of songs recorded for the BBC.

No, that's just a factory pressing error, and as such, not collectable.

This is an interesting comment. I bought an oringinal copy of this recording soon after it came out in 1988 and it had a wonderful photo printed disc inside (same photo as CD cover) with no writing on it. This CD was later stolen from my collection. Recently, I replaced it by ordering a new original Rykodisc pressing of the same CD for $20.00 hoping to get another photo printed disc. The replacement arrived but the disc, to my disappointment, had standard printing with no picture. Apparrently there were several printings of this recording by Ryko. I would consider any copy of this disc a collectors item because it is out of print but especially if it is not the standard printing. Used, the photo version is worth about $90.00.
