Japan mini-LP CDs are official audiophile releases manufactured in Japan under license. CDs made in Japan are superior in nearly every way to those from other countries.. The superb mastering (often 20 Bit, 24 Bit, K2, DSD, K2HD, or HDCD) and resultant sound quality is excellent. The Japanese packaging of classic albums in cardboard sleeve miniature is very fine. These mini-LPs endeavor to be precise miniaturizations of the first pressings of the 12\" LPs. Usually everything that was present in the original LP is included, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed CD sleeves, stickers, embosses, special paper or inks, and die cuts. In nearly all mini-LP releases a detail sheet is included, and although the text may be in Japanese, the insert will often include the lyrics in English, which is a big plus if the original LP did not include a lyric sheet. Japan promotional strips, also called “obi,” or stickers are usually included with the package as a way of advertising the CD to the Japanese buying public and includes considerable information, such as release date, catalog number, and mastering. Limited edition extra promotional obis are sometimes added by the distributor.
Stay tuned for the other Japan\'s Zep album
Led Zeppelin-Led Zeppelin IV
Also known as the \"rune\" album or Zoso because of the medieval symbols adorning the inner sleeve, Led Zeppelin\'s fourth album, released in 1971, turned them from mere superstars into giant behemoths of the rock world. On tracks like \"Black Dog,\" \"Misty Mountain Hop,\" and \"Rock and Roll,\" the combination of Robert Plant\'s banshee wails and Jimmy Page\'s frenetic guitar playing forever altered the stylistic bent of hard rock music. And the foreboding \"When the Levee Breaks\" demonstrated that Zeppelin could indeed play the blues fairly straight if they so desired. Still, everything here ultimately took a back seat to the album\'s (and, ultimately, the band\'s) magnum opus--the expertly constructed and deftly executed classic, \"Stairway to Heaven.\"
immy Page was a top London studio guitarist before he got rich and famous as the musical leader of Led Zeppelin. The group\'s fourth--and arguably their finest--album is as much a tribute to his technique as a monument to his versatility. Page produced the album, co-wrote all eight songs, and played mandolin as well as all the guitars. Musically, this 1971 disc ranges from acoustic English folke (\"Goin\' to California\" and \"The Battle of Evermore,\" the latter featuring the late Fairport Convention frontwoman Sandy Denny) to bone-crushing, bluesy riff-slinging. On the album\'s centerpiece, \"Stairway to Heaven,\" these light and dark strains are dramatically intertwined. The chiming \"Four Sticks\" aside, it\'s the Little Richard-inspired \"Rock and Roll\" and the tricky time changes--a Zeppelin trademark--of the fast-and-furious \"Black Dog\" that elevate this album into more than just a bustle in aspiring guitarists\' hedgerows.
