hi Sam / Keith,

this is the link!!! http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/pink-floyd-mini-vinyl-studio-box-set.html

and this is a UK version mini lp box - so i expect the sleeves to be thinner. I was thinking of selling my Pink Floyd mini lp set but decided against it as i have a gut feel that the new box would be not same quality of sleeves as the jap mini lps



the cheapest you can get is on amazon.de and it is around US$ 230 with shipping [if you're outside Europe and there is no VAT applicable]
http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000X1LH6C/braindamage0f-21

This is my first post and must i say this is a real cool looking forum!!!

Sam - way to go mate!!

cheers,

Arvind

OK.....this is the big question. When for the Japanese release and how much? $230 US for this many CD's is really good. What is the remaster on these? I hope they went DSD.

Keith,

there is no clear information on remastering or DSD at all.

The only bits and pieces i can add up are that all the albums are geeting re-released on Feb 4, 2008 - which could be new mastering [else why would they release the albums]. If you sort the pink floyd albums by "release dates" on amazon sites you will find all albums slated for Feb 4, 2008 release...

obviously the box and these releases will be same sound sources as no one in right mind will use earlier masters for the box and remasters for Feb 4, 2008 releases... There is not enough information to conjecture at this stage...

Let us see what these sites say in a few days from now.


cheers,

Arvind

Yes - Arvind mentioned to me that the covers are quite likely going to be thinner than the earlier Japanese releases - the old ones are certainly a benchmark in packaging.

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 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.

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.

Front cover (main) image of TOCP 71010-1 : Beatles (The) : The Beatles (aka The White Album)
TOCP 71010-1 : 2009-09-09
Double album named the beatles. Kaldes også det hvide album. Gatefold. Navnet the beatles præget i frontcover. Nummer skrevet i sort No 0000001. Ellers er mini lp'en som den originale vinylplade.
