Hi,
The Dire Straits / Dire Straits is released in Russian mini LP version with the remastered Japan OBI replica.
But this is a fake cd, but the sound is good remastered.

Given that some of these have recently been released as SHM-CD, I'm hoping they may come out as a mini - not very fancy covers but nice to have anyway. Sam.

I have pre-ordered on the www.cdjapan.co.jp website the complete dire straits inventory which are all in shm-cd format (playable on normal cd players) and are all noted as being in cardboard sleeves. The release date from cdjapan is 22/10/08. Hope that helps. paolo.

Paolo, don´t go so fast.

I can bet 100 to 1 that a Disk Union promo box will be released for Dire Straits. If you have ordered the complete release is plain clear that you are a big fan from the band so probably you will be interested into have the promo box.

Now, to have the promo box you will need:
- to bid on auction for an empty box (if the box appears, and probably paying a very high price for it).
- to sell the albums bought from CD Japan and then buy the boxset from an ebay seller (o to bid for it).

As I needed to do some of these 2 options many times (of course for boxsets released before I started collecting minis and complete releases with promo box), my advice is that your best option -if you want to have the complete boxed release- is to cancel your order when you still are on time and wait to order the complete boxset from one of the japanese ebay sellers when it will surface as pre-order.

Believe me, to buy all the albums and not to have the boxset is the wrong option and you will regret that for long time.

Think on it. Or better... act now.

Ciao

Domingo

Paolo,

just confirmed in the last Disk Union Kamijacket News, a Promo Box will be released for Dire Straits, the box artwork will be Brothers in Arms.

Do what you think better, you have a month and half before the release date.

I´m not a DS fan but a minis collector and I´ve reserved it already. I think that for you the Promo Box is a must have.

Thanks, for the disk union news. Can I ask a question... I have been to that site and got lost trying to find an english translation link. Is there one? and if so, where is it on japanese home page?

thanks
paolo

No Paolo, isn´t. The same the Kamijacket News bolletin that I receive is in japanese but I use the google translator.

Disk Union don´t sell outside Japan, so the only way to have these promo boxsets is by the ebay dealers.

Cheers

Domingo

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 POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : Who (The) : POCP Target Obi Series
POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : 1999-09-29
The first edition of the first series of mini LPs for the Who (target obis) came with inserts that were pre-punched. A binder and T-Shirt accompanied the release. It is not clear how these were obtained but it seems likely that the small yellow coupon on the obi would have been snipped off and the folder at least was awarded on surrendering the full set of coupons.
 
Front cover (main) image of hudson-pf01 : Pink Floyd : Hudson Dark Side of the Moon Box
hudson-pf01 : 2008-01-01

A unique creation from Kerry Hudson design. Lavishly sculptured and finished, this felt lined wooden box stand holds all regular sized Pink Floyd Mini vinyl LP replica covers along with a selection of DVDs.

The ultimate gift for the Pink Floyd fan who has everything. (The box is currently for sale from the sculptor. Contact details can be found here.)

This was Kerry's second homage to an artist's releases on Mini LP, the first being Hudson Genesis Box Mach I.

Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13517 : Yes : Yessongs
WPCR-13517 : 2009-07-22

"Finally after 36 years a correct version not only printed beautifully but also opening like a book, as it should." (Roger Dean)

The first reproduction of the original UK booklet style cover (however comes on 2 not 3 CDs). Earlier releases of this (AMCY-2733 and AMCY-6293) were created in the US "accordion" style.

 
Front cover (main) image of DU-BOX226L : Schulze, Klaus : Timewind Box
DU-BOX226L : 2008-02-22
Big box to enclose the previous 3 slipcase promoboxes released by Disk Union to hold a total of 16 albums.
Front cover (main) image of anon-queen-opera : Queen : A Night At The Opera Box
anon-queen-opera :
Home made box featuring art work from Queen's "A Night At The Opera". Images for this box were anonymously donated to the MiniLPs site along with the assurance that only a few of these were made for close friends.
