Pentangle japanese mini lp 2004 re-issues. 15 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
The back of the obi strips clearly state "Pressed in Hong Kong" above "Printed in Japan" & close to center hole on cd some have "Pressed in Hong Kong" as well.
Are BMG Japan releases now pressed in Hong Kong? Or are these mini lps fakes?
Also, the Pentangle set comes in sealed wrapping as with normal american cd's instead of the more common re-sealable protective sleeves.
Then again, the set of mini lp's by the Searchers came in sealed wrapping but they are made/pressed in Japan [RCA Victor, not BMG].

Yes, Pentagle minis are printed in Japan and pressed in Hongkong by Sonopress. Not all the BMG minis are the same way, the last ones received today says Made in Japan.

Any thoughts on american style outer wraps?
Is BMG trying to save a few yen?
