Special live double album

Made In Japan price sticker.

Big thanks to James for this great photograph of his first day Made In Japan, with the original price sticker on (and the poster he got from the shop display!).  I don’t remember the sticker at all, so nice to have it confirmed. The arguments rumble on about the 2014 reissues, lots of grumbles but most people going to go for one format or another. I think what it does highlight is the total lack of clarity on what is actually appearing. Even Universal’s own site contradicts other press releases and it does seem silly to have not worked out a full detailed package of sales information before letting it loose on the web.  Anyhow, we’re trying to update the formats etc. as we get more details on the MIJ page. I heard this week that the big CD box set will also entitle the buyer to download the audio as both MP3 format and the new high definition audio too.  This is a format agreed on by the big labels to exploit the back-catalogue again by admitting that CD audio is NOT the holy grail of audio after all. The problem with the HD audio is the files are massive, so can only be handled on a Blu Ray disc.  Still if they’re giving this format away gratis on downloads, that’s something. Provided your hi-fi and broadband can handle it! Anyhow, editions are on the DTB online store and we should have shipping prices sorted before long (post goes up again in a couple of weeks by the way, as a privatised Royal Mail seeks to pay off their new owners).
