"Live Collection" was originally released on 21 Jun 1987 and "Live Collection II" was originally released on 26 Aug 1987. These are the original issues and they have a red obi and catalogue numbers CBS/SONY 28DP 777 and CBS/SONY 28DP 778.
"Live Collection" and "Live Collection II" were reissued on 21 Sep 1988 with black obi and catalogue numbers 23DP 5248 and 23DP 5249.
Japanese CDs have the price printed on the artwork and/or obi. In January 1989 VAT was introduced in Japan, and since then it became legally required that two prices be printed on the obi: the net price is excluding VAT, and the total price including a fixed 5% VAT.
So, there are two versions of "Live Collection" and "Live Collection II" with black obi: the ones from before January 1989 have only one price on the obi and the ones from after January 1989 have two prices on the obi.
