Rocket -> looks like a media promo to me.

MCIS -> yep, that’s a test pressing.

Aodre -> I’d say this might even have been a media promo. sometimes the label in any country employs a pressing studio / mastering studio to copy some cdrs for promotional use to radio, press and other media, so they don’t have to do it themselves and to guarantee good quality reproduction. it doesn’t make sense to have a German pressing/mastering studio make a test pressing for a cd record that was already tested in the USA, even if the EU pressing might have been done in Germany, this would have been done from the approved masters from the US I guess, right?
