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 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.

 
Front cover (main) image of hudson-pf01 : Pink Floyd : Hudson Dark Side of the Moon Box
hudson-pf01 : 2008-01-01

A unique creation from Kerry Hudson design. Lavishly sculptured and finished, this felt lined wooden box stand holds all regular sized Pink Floyd Mini vinyl LP replica covers along with a selection of DVDs.

The ultimate gift for the Pink Floyd fan who has everything. (The box is currently for sale from the sculptor. Contact details can be found here.)

This was Kerry's second homage to an artist's releases on Mini LP, the first being Hudson Genesis Box Mach I.

Front cover (main) image of 7243 5 51728 2 : Duran Duran : The Singles 81-85 Boxset
7243 5 51728 2 : 2003-04-22
This Boxset covers the singles of Duran Duran from 1981-1985. 13 discs including all the original B-sides. The packaging is a flip top box with each single in a mini-lp style reproduction of the original artwork from the 7" and 12".
 
Front cover (main) image of VICP-63335 : Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) : The World Became The World
VICP-63335 : 2006-02-22
English language version of the earlier native Italian "L'Isola di niente" on ELP's Manticore label. As with the earlier English rehash of PFM's "Per un amico" the lyrics were for the most part re-written (not translated) by Pete Sinfield of King Crimson.
