    Well they were direct from CDJapan and everything else looks OK.

    I’ve stopped using CD Japan as everything I bought from them got stuck in customs for import tax.

    Shame, they were great to deal with.

    Its odd, but every multi disc order I put in seems to get through, but single CDs always seem to get stuck. Theres a lesson in that. Agree that CDJapan always gives a fantastic service.

    I use an eBay seller now. The discs are a little more expensive but they always go through without any problem. He has thousands of titles and the disc are here in 5 days mostly. I’ve recommended him to loads on here.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, it's nice to know.
    But looks like not all of them are flat transfers.
    I just checked my Canned Heat release, and it points to traditional remastering by Japanese:
    Remastering Engineer: Akihito Watanabe (Universal Mastering Studio)
    They says: "2017 remaster based on the US original master tapes".

    Boring! I want new U.S remasters with all the B-Sides as bonus tracks and demos and unreleased songs would be nice, too. :)

    Bemagnus Music is fun

    Just preordered seven of these cd s from cd Japan. Never had any problem with customs from them before but who knows. Anyway I love those Japanese releases with minireplicas of original albums and mostly great sounding.
    Plus even if there is additional costs stuff like this are destined to be collectors items

    CDJapan has shifted the release date to August 22, 2018.

  17. And the old SHM’s used the Gus 1995 remasters as the source? I can’t imagine the new slated series is rehashing them again. The Japanese meticulously provide the source and dates. These are being touted as ‘new mastering’.

    Yes, I’m fairly sure the new ones are fresh remasters. They wouldn’t dare use the 1995 ones again, would they?:D

    Looking forward to the reviews, though as I said earlier, I really wish these were SACD hybrids. They’ve missed a trick there.

    As I’ve said, they missed a trick there. I’d have bought the lot! Being as they’re ‘only’ SHM CDs I’ll be more cautious.

    Swines! I hate it when they do that.

    Hopefully the hold up is to add a SACD layer.:D
