Re:Digipaks etc./Focus of the site 13 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 2  
Firstly, TrippingOverGod - many thanks for opening up the topic and thanks Domingo for your input.

On the subject of lists, I reckon anything goes - for the reasons Domingo mentions. Personally I find them really interesting and it's great to (a) have them in one spot (b) have them 'in my backyard' (here on the site) (c) know what is and is not on mini (d) easily look at details about the release if they are on mini.

On the subject of CDs (and promo stuff), having thought about it a bit more, and having heard what's been said, perhaps if there is a mini-LP specific reason for having the release then it should be included.

In other words, my current thinking is:
1) The Who stays (as a digipak etc) because it has the promo sleeve
2) Coltrane stays (as a digipak etc) because it has the mini-LP sleeve included
3) Deep Purple 4 CDs stay (as a digipak etc) because it informs people about the existence - personally I wouldn't bother with the scans though
4) Divinyls to be deleted
5) Gotan Project to be deleted
6) Get yer ya-ya's stays but only because it's an example of a digipak - i do get asked sometimes what the difference is and it's in an FAQ http://www.minilps.net/faqs/mini-lp-replicas/what-is-a-digipak-digipack.html
7) Harvest stays
8) Eno prints stay somehow/somewhere - they are NOT included in the mini and should be - I might find somewhere/somehow to move them

How does that sound?

Sounds good to me! I still don't fully agree with the lists simply because there's no end to how many you could put on here, but if you guys are happy with them then that's fine, I just thought I'd bring them up whilst on the subject but they weren't my main concern.

Late-era Jarrett on it's way soon...

Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13295 : Talking Heads : Speaking In Tongues (+2)
WPCR-13295 : 2009-01-14

Fifth studio album, featuring Talking Heads only US Top Ten hit, Burning Down The House (including an alternative version as a bonus, and an unfinished outtake of Two Note Swivel).

This version is a reproduction of the limited edition clear vinyl version designed by artist Robert Rauschenberg, who won a Grammy Award for his work.

Front cover (main) image of BVCM-37083 : Presley, Elvis : Elvis Presley
BVCM-37083 : 2000-01-08
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.
 
Front cover (main) image of ACDC-BOX : AC/DC : Guitar Case Box
ACDC-BOX : 2008-06-01
Warner Promo Box with presenting the form of a guitar hard case. This box was received by mail in coupons. The promo set included also 2 T-Shirts.
Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13142 (fake) : Led Zeppelin : Fake Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection (Zoso Box)
WPCR-13142 (fake) : 2009-01-01

This fake Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary appears to be made in China. You would find it hard to pick a sealed copy of this as being anything other than than the real deal.

Inside it is also remarkably similar but has some significant, obvious differences in packaging including: (a) the CD comes in a flimsy loose fitting bag (b) Physical Graffiti has no cut out windows and (c) III (3) has no turning wheel.

The CDs also have the tell tale extra ring in the middle but this is much better disguised than usual.

Unusually for fakes these have the catalogue number and an IFPI code (CC 303) on the silver side of the disc.

 
Front cover (main) image of TOCP-71041 : Beatles (The) : The Beatles in Mono
TOCP-71041 : 2009-09-09

Published by EMI Music Japan. This box is a little larger than the non-Japanese version as it contains additional printed material.

Front cover (main) image of VICP-63335 : Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) : The World Became The World
VICP-63335 : 2006-02-22
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.
