Great thread!

The early discs are numbered as well but by job number not by date. Discovision/Pioneer used a 95-xxx number for titles, continuing into 96 and 97. Digital Sound titles used a 50 prefix and then 51. The earliest 95 I have found is 95-003 "Liza Mannelli In Concert" PA-81-002. From what I can tell, Pinoeer USA would number the titles and then send to Japan for pressing. Early Japan discs would only put the catalog number for the title on the inner circle of the disc and USA pressings would put the 95 number on the outer ring. I have a list that goes up to the 96 numbers but there are a lot of gaps since titles only made in Japan for US do not have the 95 job number. I am certain quite a few titles were given a number but never released since many of the early publisher catalogs listed titles that never made it to market.
