German and US logo on CD

I got the German version of Paul's solo album on CD. The German logo is on the spine and back cover, but on the front cover it has the US logo. I have never seen that before, is that correct?

Re: German and US logo on CD

as a side note, at the NYC Kiss Expo, I asked Dennis Woloch (Art Director 1975-1987) about the German logo, and he said he didn't have any involvement in that design nor the band, that it was something done by the record label.. just something I was always curious about

Were they new? Sounds like someone switched out booklets, unless they're digipacks or something. Which logo is on the disc itself?

Re: German and US logo on CD

I may be in the minority here but I rather like the German logo. I think the redesigner kept the punchiness and the "rockiness" of the logo without potentially getting into trouble in Germany :)
