Yessongs SHM 14 Years, 11 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, 11 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.

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.

Die Cut Covers :

Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.

There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.
