The rarest and most sought after 14 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0  
I was intrigued by your comment that "Deja Vu" by CSN&Y is "One of the rarest and most sought after Japanese mini LPs".

May I ask what, in your opinion, are the top 20 rarest and most sought after?

Re:The rarest and most sought after 14 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 2  
I was hoping someone else might have a stab at this one.... top 20 is a big ask.

I have a top 5 I suppose but I'm either too stingey to spend the money or they just never come up.

The oddest of my list is "Gilbert O'Sullivan, I'm a Writer not a Fighter" for completely nostalgic reasons.

I also have "Dave Brubeck, Time Out", "Return To Forever, Romantic Warrior" and did have "Banco, Darwin!" (but I recently got that and it's about to be re-released soon too).

The price for Darwin! will plummet soon as a result of the re-release. The same would be true for Deja Vu if it ever gets re-released expecially if it gets remastered.

Hi everybody

The most sought after mini's are priced accordingly... Ah, the law of offer and demand !!! To me, "Déjà vu" is the top one. Some others are "The wall" by Pink Floyd, "666" by Aphrodite's child, "A glass house" by Gentle Giant, most the Pat Metheny issues, "A passion play" by Jethro Tull, "Romantic Warrior" by Return to Forever, all the Mahavishnu Orchestra issues, "Ram" and "Band on the run" by Paul McCartney. "Melting pot" by Booker T and the MG's is rare too. Of course, I noticed those titles because they fit in my tastes. There might be other rare mini's of artist I dont even know... Any other sugestions ???

EMICD-11228 : 2007-11-26

16 CD box set - being 14 studio albums including 2 doubles.

According to Pink Floyd Brain Damage site there were a few glitches with this release, the most notable being a misprinting of the inner bag for the second CD in "The Wall".

There are also cases of an album being missed out and duplicates in their places.

The later Japanese release of this box set is basically identical to this box set.

Poor quality fakes exist for this set - more details below.

The original Japanese individual releases are regarded as being of a much higher quality to either of these box sets.

You can see a YouTube video of this set on the videos page.

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.
