"Electric Light Orchestra, 2, Japanese OBI Mini LP Replica in A CD - Original Release"

ELO - ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA 2 - 8 RARE BONUS TRACKS (sealed). THIS IS THE ORIGINAL RELEASE NOT A RE-ISSUE. LAST COPY FOREVER MANY OF THESE OBI ELO RELEASES ARE NOW SELLING IN THE COLLECTORS MARKET FOR OVER $250 A PIECE. THAT'S HOW RARE AND COLLECTIBLE THESE OUT OF PRINT MASTERPIECES HAVE BECOME. WHAT IS A JAPAN "MINI-LP-SLEEVE" CD? Have you ever lamented the loss of one of the 20th Century's great art forms, the 12" vinyl LP jacket? Then "mini-LP-sleeve" CD's may be for you. Mini-sleeve CDs are manufactured in Japan under license. The disc is packaged inside a 135MM X 135MM cardboard precision-miniature replica of the original classic vinyl-LP album. Also, anything contained in the original LP, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed LP sleeves, stickers, embosses, special LP cover paper/inks/textures and/or die cuts, are precisely replicated and included. An English-language lyric sheet is always included, even if the original LP did not have printed lyrics. Then, there's the sonic quality: Mini-sleeves have dedicated remastering (20-Bit, 24-Bit, DSD, K2/K2HD, and/or HDCD), and can often be superior to the audio on the same title anywhere else in the world. There also may be bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere. Each Japan mini-sleeve has an "obi" ("oh-bee"), a removable Japan-language promotional strip. The obi lists the Japan street date of that particular release, the catalog number, the mastering info, and often the original album's release date. Bonus tracks are only listed on the obi, maintaining the integrity of the original LP artwork. The obi's are collectable, and should not be discarded. All mini-sleeve releases are tremendously limited editions mainly pressed on future orders only and once released immediately out of print. This fact along with other latter features we've mentioned make these titles rare collectibles that sell in the collectors markets for $100's of dollars apiece. ELO 2 - Tracks: 01.
