Re:Digipaks etc./Focus of the site 11 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...
