Tom Waits - Japan Mini LP CDs (Elektra) 12 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0  

did anyone buy the remastered japan mini lp cds by tom waits? I did, but it seems there are problems with "closing time" - on track 4, "old shoes", is a clicking noise at 0:29 and 0:45, on track 6, "martha", at 0:24 - is that a remastering problem or did I buy a defective copy?
It would be great if anyone could help me with this problem.
(I don't know if some of the other remasters have similar problems, I just listened to "closing time" and "the heart of saturday night" so far)

I might be able to help.
I also own this album in the Mini LP edition and I've just listened to Old Shoes (4) and Martha (6).
There is indeed some audible clicks at 0:45 (Old Shoes) and at 0:24 (Martha). I think that these clicks are actually instrument sounds. My explanation is this: The remastering is very loud on the album, and it seems that the vocal and acoustic instruments have been "pushed" to the front to give the listener a kind
of feeling that you're in the studio with the musicians. The remastering
done on this edition simply reveals a lot more than the previous non-Mini LP edition did.
Hope i could help

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 EMICD-11228 : Pink Floyd : Oh By The Way: European Box Set
EMICD-11228 : 2007-11-26

16 CD box set - being 14 studio albums including 2 doubles.

According to Pink Floyd Brain Damage site there were a few glitches with this release, the most notable being a misprinting of the inner bag for the second CD in "The Wall".

There are also cases of an album being missed out and duplicates in their places.

The later Japanese release of this box set is basically identical to this box set.

Poor quality fakes exist for this set - more details below.

The original Japanese individual releases are regarded as being of a much higher quality to either of these box sets.

You can see a YouTube video of this set on the videos page.
