    Any of you have these Japan CD issued in MiniLP style maybe around mid '90? I think they released all the album 'til Press To Play(or better I've them 'til Press To Play). I've all but never listened or opened them. Any thoughts?

    So anyone has them? Just saw that they are from about 1991 so they predate the McCartney 1993 collection...

    Japan mini album replica's were not manufactured that early.
    Do you have a discogs link you can provide?

    I have saw the date just on Discogs... shall I be wrong? I'll take a look again. I've tried with Press To Play and seems to have see it. I'll take a look again.

    I have the Wings Over America 3 disc mini-LP that was released in 1999. At the time it was hyped as being better than the standard 2 disc EMI Parlophone release but I don't recall that it is any different other than being spread over three discs. Have not listened to it in ages.

    Russia used to put out a lot of mini-Lp knockoffs before they became officially commonplace. Just to have a miniaturized version of the actual album cover, I ordered Ram. While the Cd sounded okay, the cover art duplication was pretty crummy...very dark and "cloudy" looking. Mini-Lp's have come a long way .

    I'd be interested to know how that CD sounds compared with the 2017 one :

    Paul McCartney - McCartney

    ...I just picked up a couple weeks back and have been listening to fairly regularly.

    To me seem to be official japan Mini-LP.
    The cover arts are very sharp and bright as you'd expect from an official release. They sold me years ago as official. They were released in batch of four titles at times, following the chronologically order.
