Many sound-conscious buyers began buying Japanese records instead. You can browse our selection of Japanese records here. Besides good sound, a quiet playing surface, and quality cover printing, Japanese records also offered some other things of interest to the collector. There are several things that make Japanese records appealing to both record collectors and audiophiles:. The Everclean vinyl was designed to be less prone to collecting static electricity and dust than the more common black vinyl.
The decision regarding which Japanese records would be pressed on red vinyl was seemingly random; there was no way of knowing if a particular title by a given artist would come out on black vinyl, red vinyl, or both. Among collectors, if an album was pressed on both black and red vinyl, the red vinyl pressing will command a significantly higher price, even if the red vinyl pressings are more common than the black ones.
In the case of Live Album by Grand Funk Railroad, not only were the red vinyl pressings limited to promotional copies, but only one record of the two record set was pressed on red vinyl! Different covers.
Often, particularly in the s, Japanese records were released with different covers than their U. This was often a temporary measure, and these alternate covers rarely stayed in print for long. The original Japanese pressing featured a colorful photo of the entire band, taken through a fish eye lens. The original cover is quite rare today.
Relative rarity. Most Japanese records contain music by Japanese artists that are sung in Japanese; English-language albums have been, especially in the s, a relatively small part of the overall industry.
As a result, most Japanese records of English-language music were pressed in small runs; sometimes as small as a few hundred copies. Rather than keeping titles in print, the records would be repressed if demand warranted it. Often, these repressings would have a different cover, catalog number, and obi from the earlier issue.
Good sound quality. There are many factors that determine how a record will sound, including the quality of the master tapes used, how the record was mastered, and what kind of vinyl was used to press the records.
Japanese records are often revered for their high quality sound. American record companies that pressed records in the millions in the s and early s often used inexpensive or recycled vinyl to press their records, resulting in poor sound or excessive surface noise. They would also press a high number of records from a single stamper, with each record pressed sounding worse than the one made just before it.
These records are often extraordinarily quiet and have little or no surface noise, allowing the listener a better listening experience. In addition, English-language music titles were usually pressed in fairly small quantities in Japan, meaning all of the discs were likely pressed while the stampers were still fairly new. The obi. While most Japanese records feature local music, a lot of music fans there like foreign music, as well. Jeg foreslog ham dengang at skrive kontrakt med Carsten, men det ville Poul ikke, da han syntes, at C.
Det ved jeg, at han har fortrudt senere. Vi valgte Metronome — ikke fordi de havde det bedste tilbud — men fordi de var de flinkeste folk. Men i stedet for betaling for noget session-arbejde, jeg havde lavet, fik jeg i lov til at forsyne mig med plader fra GDC. Og det gjorde det for os. Det var Carsten. Vi har aldrig arbejdet sammen siden. Nils Henriksen NH : — Nummeret, der endte med at blive bandets signatursang. Ivan Horn IH : — Jeg er skideglad for den guitarfigur. Jeg er meget glad for det nummer.
NH: — Kryptisk, storladent og mystisk. Hvem er han, ham entertaineren? IH: — Carsten kom med nummeret, og jeg syntes, det var fedt. NH: — Fyldt med charmerende sarkasme. Men det blev ved tanken. En kanon tekst. En formidabel tekst, der er det rene rap. Meget inspireret af J.
Det hele er lidt pre-punket. En ny effekt, der havde sin korte storhedstid. Funk var hot som stilart og dominerer denne plade. Her skaber han virkelig sin egen verden kontra omverdenen. IH: — Fra min side er den meget inspireret af George Benson, med brug af oktaver i det akustiske guitarspil.
Til sidst brugte jeg Sebastians akustiske guitar, som han havde glemt i studiet. Fedt nummer. NH: — Meget markant. Faren er autodidakt mandolinspiller og brandmand, og moren er syerske.Jul 30, · Indian Summer, an Album by C.V. Jørgensen. Released in on CBS (catalog no. CBS 1; Vinyl LP)/5(1).
