Dear Queenzoners,

today I cam e across a test pressing of Queen's album "A Kind Of Magic".
The album was never released in East-Germany but this record contains the whole album. The label is the typical AMIGA label but without the letters "AMIGA" on it. The album tile and the songs you can find on the label. Because a lot of pressings for CBS, EMI etc. were made in East Germany (especially in my hometown), I guess this could be a test-pressing for EMI for the market in West-Germany.

Does anyone can give me some more information about this record. For example how many were made of them?  That would be great. Thanks an advanced
