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

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)

Re:Tom Waits - Japan Mini LP CDs (Elektra) 12 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
Hi,
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

FeatFan

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 LIST-007 : Quintessence Editions : 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die
LIST-007 : 2006-02-07

This is a work in progress project and due to its size it will take some time to finish.

Book cover images from different countries are welcome (or the ones included but with better image resolution).

 
Front cover (main) image of DU-SP146.2 : Bowie, David : Space Oddity Box
DU-SP146.2 : 2007-03-07

This box was issued by Disk Union as part of the 3rd of their 3 box releases in the early 2007. You did not need to buy boxes one (Ziggy Stardust Box and Promo Obis) or two (Low Box and Promo Obis) in order to receive the Space Oddity Box. It came with Let's Dance Box and Promo Obis.

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 ARC-7003 : Semiramis : Dedicato a Frazz
ARC-7003 : 2002-03-27

Rare Italian Progressive rock album from the Trident label.

Images for this release show two different types of obis for original (sticker) and reprints (paper) of this release.

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.
