Where can I get replacement plastic bags? E-mail

Good record shops (CD shops would probably be a better name I guess).

You can also buy them online from http://www.soundsourcecds.com/

They are usually considerably cheaper if you buy them in bulk.

Make sure you get the sort where the sticky stuff is on the bag and not on the flap - otherwise you ruin you beloved replica trying to get it back into the very thing that you bought to protect it (the cover sticks on the flap as you try to get it back in).

(Most mini lps come in resealable plastic bags. Different manufacturers use different types of bags. The seal on some bags does not last very long so many collectors keep a stock of unused new bags.)

Front cover (main) image of VICP-5442,3,4 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : First True Japanese Mini LP Rock Release
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21

The first three Emerson Lake and Palmer albums (self titled, Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition) are arguably the first true Rock Mini LPs. They were released on 21st September 1994.

These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.

The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.

This is the eponymous first album from Elvis Presley. It is the first rock & roll album to reach number one on the national charts (holding at number 1 for 20 weeks) and the first million dollar selling pop album.

English language version of the earlier native Italian "L'Isola di niente" on ELP's Manticore label. As with the earlier English rehash of PFM's "Per un amico" the lyrics were for the most part re-written (not translated) by Pete Sinfield of King Crimson.
