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?

Regards,

Stuart

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 ???

Front cover (main) image of Caroline-2008 : Various Artists : Caroline Records 2009 US Releases
Caroline-2008 : 2008-08-05

In late 2008 Caroline Records in the USA released a number of albums by the following artists: UFO, Jethro Tull, Quicksilver Messenger, Brian Eno, Roxy Music, The Raspberries, Kate Bush, Blondie, The Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Van Der Graaf Generator (full list below).

Unlike the suspect Universal releases these are 100% Japanese. The only difference between these and the Japanese (apart from being as much as 50% cheaper) is a sticker on the bar code of the obi.

As at March 2009 most of these are still available at Amazon.

Die Cut Covers :

Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.

There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.
