Scorpions (Roth era) In Trance box 16 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
RE Scorpions (Roth era) In Trance box (Dec 19 release): I had the Japan vinyl for all the Roth era Scorpions and later, had a jewel case import of the original Japan cover Virgin Killer which features the nude girl (see attached). I hope they use that cover as it is better to have the original tasteless cover than the than the U.S. replacement cover. The set is missing the other Uli Roth studio album Taken By Force (which also had a unique Japan graveyard cover) and also it's missing the double LP Tokyo Tapes and also the Japan version of greatest hits (roth era) which also had a cool embossed cover. I am not sure what the following means (translated from Japanese) - but I am thinking it means we will not get the nude girl cover or does it mean we will get it (can someone confirm):

I translated the DiskUnion page for this release ( and here is what Google thinks it says:
December 26, 2007 release!
Released jacket at the time of the girl's nude photographs to be used from controversial ban on sales and production, but since its release 30 years since high evaluation in 1976 published 4 th album.
Initial production of a limited-edition paper jacket specification recurrent! JVC K2 24bit mastering.
* Jacket and the replacement versions.

Not that much clearer really..... sort of sounds like it's not as controversial as it used to be but still may be used??

Still - questionable taste none the less!

Front cover (main) image of MHCP-1002 : Santana : Lotus
MHCP-1002 : 2006-06-07

Recorded in early July 1973 this album took nearly a year to make it to streets.

One of the most elaborate record covers ever produced and probably the most elaborate so far to make it to mini LP release. It is nearly impossible to capture the splendour of this on a web site but we shall try...

Front cover (main) image of TOCP-65740 : Pink Floyd : The Dark Side Of The Moon
TOCP-65740 : 2001-06-16
The landmark 1973 album from Pink Floyd. This issue contains all the original inserts plus more.

Front cover (main) image of anon-queen-opera : Queen : A Night At The Opera Box
anon-queen-opera :
Home made box featuring art work from Queen's "A Night At The Opera". Images for this box were anonymously donated to the MiniLPs site along with the assurance that only a few of these were made for close friends.
Front cover (main) image of TOCP-65883 : Jethro Tull : Thick As A Brick +2
TOCP-65883 : 2001-10-31
The undisputed classic Jethro Tull album. The first full length concept album from Ian Anderson and, according the official web site, "a rock first: one continuous song on both sides"
Front cover (main) image of POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : Who (The) : POCP Target Obi Series
POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : 1999-09-29
The first edition of the first series of mini LPs for the Who (target obis) came with inserts that were pre-punched. A binder and T-Shirt accompanied the release. It is not clear how these were obtained but it seems likely that the small yellow coupon on the obi would have been snipped off and the folder at least was awarded on surrendering the full set of coupons.
