Strange Days Magazine – List #1

http://www.minilps.net/best-of-list/strange-days-magazine-list-001

This is a special list of which are the best Japanese mini-LP CD’s from 1967 – 1971.  I own a surprising amount of these in this format!  I really started buying them in earnest on my 2007 visit to Tokyo, but I have continued buying as many “kami sleeve” CD’s as possible.

From this list, as “kami sleeve” CD’s, I own:

  1. King Crimson – In The Courrt Of The Crimson King
  2. David Bowie – Space Oddity
  3. The Soft Machine – The Soft Machine (Debut)

11.     The Rolling Stones – Their Satanic Majesties Request

14.     Yes – Fragile

15.     John Lennon – Imagine

26.    Van Der Graaf Generator – H To He

28.  Billy Nicholls – Would You Believe

30.  The Small Faces – Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake

32.  Fairport Convention – Unhalfbricking

35.  Frank Zappa – Hot Rats (Remix)

36.  Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Tarkus

37.  King Crimson – Islands

40.  The Soft Machone – Third

43.  The Zombies – Odyssey & Oracle

44.  Al Kooper – I Stand Alone

52.  Caravan – In The Land of Grey & Pink

56.  Manfred Mann – Mighty Garvey

57.  The Pretty Things – S.F. Sorrow

58.  Jethro Tull – Stand Up

62.  The Iveys – Maybe Tomorrow

65.  Tomorrow – Tomorrow (Debut)

73.  Dr. Strangely Strange – Heavy petting

74.  Syd Barrett – The Madcap Laughs

78.  Procol Harum – Procol Harum (Debut)

84.  McDonald & Giles – McDonald & Giles (Debut)

86.  Gracious! – Gracious! (Debut)

92.  Deep Purple – In Rock

100.  July – July (Debut)

So, I am a good Japanese consumer!  29 out of 100 is my score!  I wish I could read how the ranking was determined – but it’s in Japanese!  I do own many more CD’s and LP’s on this list, but the ones mentioned here today are ONLY the Japanese paper sleeve CD’s!
