    I bought a 45 of the Monkees' "Valleri" at the flea market in Harajuku, Tokyo, and the picture sleeve folds out to a 1968 calendar:

    At the same flea market visit, I found a 45 of the Ventures performing two recent (1965) Japanese hits by Yuzo Kayama (whose image is inset in the top right corner):

    I also found the 45 by Yuzo Kayama with the original versions:

    Note that Kayama is playing a Mosrite Ventures Model guitar, which was gifted to him by the Ventures when they toured Japan together.

    A big job is right. The WGFA & Summertime Blues sleeves are the two easiest Japan Who 7” picture sleeves to find and are the least expensive. After that, they start getting more & more expensive & harder and harder to find, especially when you start on their 60’s sleeves. It’s lots of fun hunting them down, though! Good luck!

    Zwolo, that first one is rare as hell. The other 3 are generally in most stores in the $2 boxes.

    Nappy Head

    Year: 1971
    rough value: $? none on discogs and oddly very little demand.
    rarity: never seen it. unusual for a Japanese band to get a j-pressing with their first ever release. Japan were onto this band early. Good eye.

    Year: 1971
    rough value: $? none on discogs and oddly ZERO demand.
    rarity: utterly unsighted. I would cream my daks if I saw this in the wild. Not huge on the song but instant framing for that cover.

    rarity: easy enough find but do you really want it? the b-side is a cool track but.... this was pretty much the creative end for this band

    would love to see the scum stats on War's j-pressings, I'm guessing an absolute boatload were pressed
