Japanese 808:88:98 papersleeve edition out now

Postby markus » 26 Mar 2009 17:27

Third Ear Japan released 808:88:98 on 25 March 2009 (originally planned for 23 July 2008). This comes in a cardboard sleeve similar to the 90, ex:el, Gorgeous & Don Solaris deluxe releases, however it does not contain a bonus disc or bonus tracks.

Available here: http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/2729321

Sadly the planned Japanese North At It's Heights deluxe CD seems to have been scrapped. It no longer appears on the HMV Japan website.

I wasn't aware the UK version was re-issued last year.

That's a bizarre one, I believe not even ZTT themselves were aware... The CD print job is really bad on that UK re-issue, so beware, for collectors only...

Yes, found the UK one by accident - it was listed as a "new" release on Juno... Wasn't really expecting anything, to be honest (i.e. thought it was going to be a duplicate of the '98 release) - then I saw the printed CD...

2008 'Reissue' CD

Everything else is exactly the same as the 98 release, btw - cover/sleeve, tracks, etc...

For collectors (like me) who collect everything released...! :P

Note the bad printing on the outside left, all copies are like that...

Not sure about the UK one, but the Japanese one is apparently in HQCD quality (whatever that means)! :P
