Yessongs SHM 14 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hey everyone. Does anyone know what the deal is with the upcoming SHM? I have it pre-ordered from CD-Japan but am I bit concerned that it won't the be crazy gatefold cover, mainly because it's a 2-Disc set rather than a 3-Disc set. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it will be the same trifold cover (which many argue is not a true replica!)

Re:Yessongs SHM 14 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
For those who are curious about the answer to the question I posed, my Yessongs came today. It appears that this release finally replicates the original addition. Rather that the accordion style fold-out that the other minis have taken, the gatefolds fold open more like a book, tied together with a single thick spine. The first sleeve has the first disc, the second sleeve the second disc, the third the booklet that came with the original and the final the lyric sheet. Of course, this one is 2 CD's, not 3. Also, the CD's come in the original white sleeves with the Yes logo printed on one side. It's pretty great. I hope to get some pictures up soon.

BoxesWho :

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 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.

VC 04-17 : 2002-01-01

Russian mini LP of the 1967 album from the Fab Four. Nice reproduction including a full black CD replica of the original vinyl disc.

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.

Warner Promo Box with presenting the form of a guitar hard case. This box was received by mail in coupons. The promo set included also 2 T-Shirts.
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.
