Actually, according to Rolling Stone, it says(paraphrasing):that *Capitol* was
releasing only 500,000 copies on Unplugged.
Now, Capitol is the record company that releases Paulie's material in the
_United States_. Parlophone/EMI releases in Britan, Odeon(sp?)/EMI in Japan,
and so on. From what I gather, this is the way things are:
In the U.S., only 500,000 copies are being made, TOTAL. (This would explain why
no one has reported a CD number higher than 250,000 [assuming that the releases
are 1/2 CD, 1/2 cassette]. I have personally seen cassette copies as low as
01965, 01968, and 01969). The U.S. copies are the _only_ ones numbered.
In other countries, there is no numbering system, so I assume that other
countries will/do press however many they want. The above would explain why the
U.S. releases were held up an extra 1-2 weeks.
I hope this helps a little, at least. I tend to think that the owner on the
250,000th U.S. copy probably has the last copy (numbered, in not made.)
