Mott The Hoople "Mott" Japanese Mini LP / Die Cut 12 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0  
This is my first post. I mainly collect Pink Floyd Mini LPs. But I have a CD I want to sell put out by my second favorite group Mott The Hoople/
I have a new sealed copy of "Mott" Bar code # 4571191058034. I tried listing it on Ebay but Ebay did not recognize the number. I have been told that the Mini Lp I have is the first release with a Die-Cut cover. The Mini LPs listed on Ebay now say "Paper sleeve replica based on original UK Die cut gatefold with plastic silk screen insert"[b]. What struck me was the part I put in bold type. "based on the original UK Die cut". When the UK LP came out in the 70's it had a die cut cover. I now have a Die-cut Japanese Mini LP, put out by Sony Music Direct (Japan). Date shown (06-4-3).
I am trying to determine if the Mini LP I own is worth more than a regular release of the same CD ($30). When I purchased the CD the seller told me the reason he was charging the price he was, was because of the die-cut which made it a very hard to find Mini LP.
If any one could help I would really appreciate it.....Thanks

In Japanese Mini LP circles we use the release ID that most Japanese Minis seem to have in variaitons of the format XXXX-9999 (or thereabouts). In the case of this mini it's MHCP-1063. Full scans can be found here.

eBay does not always recognise non-US bar codes (unless the release was also issued in the US and then often it is given a new bar code - a sticker on the outside of the plastic bag.)

The release date of the mini is actually the date above that one on the cardboard flap (the obi) - it was 5th July 2006. The other date was (probably) the date that the jewel case was issued.

It is true that a mini LP is generally worth more than the jewel case version - Japanese mini LPs in particular - but the price does fluctuate based on availability. They are re-released from time to time and, when they are in stock they are relatively inexpensive.

This particularly Mini LP was re-printed and re-released a few days ago (14th March - by a staggering coincidence) and you can currently buy this on CDJapan for about $18 USD + postage!

In fact most of the early Mott releases are available for that price - now is definitely the time to buy them!

Welcome to the wonderful world of mini LPs! My best tips - buy directly from Japanese shops (hmv.co.jp and cdjapan.co.jp) when you can; do not buy for investment.

I always make my own pictures and I will not buy if an actual picture is not shown. I tried to attach a scan for this post but the file size was to big. You are right the OBI strip does show 1,890 Yen with (06-4-3) date. What it doesn't have which all the other Mott the Hoople Mini LPs I am selling is the doen't have the "British Rock Explosuion" sticker. Of all the CDs I have listed Slade "Slayed" is showing the most interest. That CD is fro 2006 and shows 2,730 Yen what ever that is worth. Thxs (Can you tell I was into Glam Rock?

Front cover (main) image of VICP-5442,3,4 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : First True Japanese Mini LP Rock Release
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21

The first three Emerson Lake and Palmer albums (self titled, Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition) are arguably the first true Rock Mini LPs. They were released on 21st September 1994.

These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.

The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.

Over the years a number of promotional boxes have been released for "The Who". These have included "Manufacturer", "Disk Union" and "Indeterminate Origin".

Here is a selection...

 
Front cover (main) image of MHCP-1002 : Santana : Lotus
MHCP-1002 : 2006-06-07

Recorded in early July 1973 this album took nearly a year to make it to streets.

One of the most elaborate record covers ever produced and probably the most elaborate so far to make it to mini LP release. It is nearly impossible to capture the splendour of this on a web site but we shall try...

Front cover (main) image of UICY-93013-38 : Rolling Stones (The) : In the 60's
UICY-93013-38 : 2006-03-16

2006 (reprinted at least once) release of Stones albums from the earliest days up to 1975. Does not include the early 70s releases.

Each album included a collector card. The backs of the cards, when laid side by side, formed the cover image of "Their Satanic Majesties Request".
