Question regarding barcode of the "LOVE" CD

Post by ennolenno »

Hello everybody,
I've got a question regarding the barcode of the official "LOVE" CD (standard jewel case edition).

There are two different ones:

0 94638 15982 7
0 94637 98082 8

But what's the difference? Does anybody know?

Thanks in advance

I think you want to throw an Uno Reverse card on that. :D

Thank you very much for your replies, guys.
(oh what a rhyme. Now I've got "Hop on the bus, Gus" in mind.)

Howsoever...

Yes, one of the links joguema provided is for a Canadian release.

But:

There is also a European release with this barcode:

0 94637 98082 8 = https://www.discogs.com/de/release/8421 ... atles-Love

So in fact, there are two different European releases with different barcodes.

As I don't have both releases, I'm interested to know whether there are any differences content-wise, respectively mixing-wise?

Look at the SID codes, if they match other releases then they used the same digital masters.

Knowledge of digital masters you can get by downloading this program. https://www.exactaudiocopy.de/

Put the cd in your dvd drive on your pc, run the program, and when the cd is read,

Go to Action in the toolbar, choose Create Cut sheet and save this file,

You will find the digital isrc masternumber track by track when opening this txt file

This were introduced in the mid 80's as a hidden file on cd's but all companies didn't use them from beginning

The database of isrc numbers you find here https://isrc.soundexchange.com/

I remember first seeing barcodes from 1980 on US Rarities LP, after the first run
