Def Leppard Mini-LP Replicas and SHM-CD 12 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello,

I just registered and this is my first posting to this forum. For many years, I have been collecting vinyl and CDs (especially those in the mini-LP design).

Anyway, I have a couple of the upcoming cardboard reissues of Def Leppard on order:

On Through The Night
High 'n' Dry
Pyromania
Hysteria
Adrenalize

These reissues are among the many that Universal Music Japan is releasing as SHM-CD (Super High Material CD). It is supposed to offer "improved transparency on the data side of the disc, allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head" (quote taken from CD Japan site). Does anyone know if this is pretty accurate? Does anyone have any SHM-CDs? Thanks.

I hate to say this to you, but your mini lps are russian fakes at 99.9%. This is the first Japanese Mini LP release for Def Leppard.

And about your question, yes SHM-CD has better sound quality than normal japanese remasters and way better than USA or european remasters.

I think you might have misunderstood - he has pre-ordered them from CDJapan - he does not own them yet

Thanks for the reply. This is one of the reasons I order from CD Japan, so that I am assured of getting the real thing, not to mention and pay the actual retail price and not the inflated mark-ups from. From CD Japan, these Def Leppard titles are a little over $25 US. If you pre-order them from Amazon.com, they are $47.99.

Anyway, I guess I'll see what they are like when I receive them. BTW, I just added an image for my avatar in case you could not guess where my SN originated.

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 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 DU-BOX045 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : Tarkus Box and Obis
DU-BOX045 : 2005-09-28

Tarkus promo box and obis released to accompany the first K2 24 bit release of the first five ELP albums.

The artwork is darker than the album cover. It came with 6 promo obis, 2 for Trilogy.

Some of the images shown here include all but one of the Tarkus Mini LP releases spanning 1994 - 2008

 
Front cover (main) image of Caroline-2008 : Various Artists : Caroline Records 2009 US Releases
Caroline-2008 : 2008-08-05

In late 2008 Caroline Records in the USA released a number of albums by the following artists: UFO, Jethro Tull, Quicksilver Messenger, Brian Eno, Roxy Music, The Raspberries, Kate Bush, Blondie, The Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Van Der Graaf Generator (full list below).

Unlike the suspect Universal releases these are 100% Japanese. The only difference between these and the Japanese (apart from being as much as 50% cheaper) is a sticker on the bar code of the obi.

As at March 2009 most of these are still available at Amazon.

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.
