What's an iPad?

When this site went live (August 2006) the problem we faced was how were we going to fill up those huge screens people were starting to buy. They just kept getting bigger and bigger with better and better resolution.

How that's all changed in the last couple of years!

The challenge now is to accommodate big screens and ... tiny ones. The internet gurus told us we could send different pages etc to different "devices" depending on what the devices told us they were. The problem with this is that they don't all obey the rules.

We are on a very tight budget here at MiniLPs.net so have compromised by removing the left hand menu. For those who are used to the old way... sorry... You can still access nearly everything - it's just now located at the top of the page.

If you get lost, come back to the home page and you should be able to find what you're looking for.

Enjoy!

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.

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...
