OBI question 12 Years ago Karma: 0  
Hi,
the FAQ about OBI STRIP clearly describes the meaning of "Yogaku" symbol.
I have also seen L and X symbols on OBIs.
Can anyone explain what do these symbols mean?

Thanks in advance,
Vlad.

Hi Vlad,

Good question - Can you please provide some images or links to releases on the site that have these symbols?

Thanks, Sam.

Re:OBI question 12 Years ago Karma: 2  
I have asked one of the guy's who helped with the original obi FAQ and we shall see. In the meantime I think the L may mean the opposite of the Y - ie. Japanese - or perhaps a type of Japanese such as "modern Japanese"?

I notice that Flower Travellin' Band releases have the L.

Maybe it is, but i don't think so. If you take a close look, you will see these symbols always stand near the date of release. I think these symbols have something to do with this date. Let's see.

Front cover (main) image of Rush-Sector-1 : Rush : Sector 1
Rush-Sector-1 : 2011-11-21
Box 1 from a 3 boxes set. Each box is numbered. These are official releases by Universal Music. Each box set has 5 cds and 1 DVD. Each cd is in a replica mini LP sleeve. The DVD is in Surround sound. Each sliding box has a picture from 1 member of the band. On top of the boxes, you find part of the logo that is on the inside of the 2112 cd.

SONY-AERO : 2004-07-07
This rare promo box was given in exchange for coupons which were issued with nineteen Aerosmith and related mini lp cds. The mini lp cds were released by Sony on 2004-07-07.
 
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 WPCR-14306 : Cooper, Alice : Welcome To My Nightmare
WPCR-14306 : 2012-01-18
Warner Music Japan : Cardboard sleeve (mini LP) reissue from Alice Cooper featuring the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD players) and 2011 remastering. The cardboard sleeve features single E-type jacket with an inner bag and ATLANTIC green/orange label. Comes with a description and lyrics. Part of a twelve-album Alice Cooper SHM-CD cardboard sleeve reissue series featuring albums "Pretties For You," "Easy Action," "Love It To Death," "Killer," "Schools's Out," "Billion Dollar Babies," "Muscle Of Love," "Welcome To My Nightmare," "Goes To Hell," "Lace And Whiskey," "The Alice Cooper Show," and "From The Inside."
 
Front cover (main) image of hudson-pf01 : Pink Floyd : Hudson Dark Side of the Moon Box
hudson-pf01 : 2008-01-01

A unique creation from Kerry Hudson design. Lavishly sculptured and finished, this felt lined wooden box stand holds all regular sized Pink Floyd Mini vinyl LP replica covers along with a selection of DVDs.

The ultimate gift for the Pink Floyd fan who has everything. (The box is currently for sale from the sculptor. Contact details can be found here.)

This was Kerry's second homage to an artist's releases on Mini LP, the first being Hudson Genesis Box Mach I.

Here is a comparison between a genuine official copy of Aerosmith Pump made by Universal and a Russian counterfeit copy. In the picture, the real one is on the left and the fake is on the right.
