I recently obtained some Blue Spec CD2 format CD’s from Japan. These are Blu-ray discs that will play in US CD players! The present series is denoted as “Legacy Recordings” – the three I ordered and received are:
MOTT THE HOOPLE ALL THE YOUNG DUDES SONY JPN SICP 30089
NILSSON, HARRY AERIAL BALLET RCA JPN SICP 30080
BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS CHILD IS FATHER TO THE MAN SONY JPN SICP 30061
I needed to replace my Mott The Hoople CD; I only had the US vers. without any bonus tracks. This ’06 mastered version has 7 bonus tracks!
I did not have this Harry Nilsson title in any format; I’ve enjoyed all of the Nilsson material I’ve gotten lately, so thought I should try one of his famous albums. It’s an ’07 mastered version. 3 x bonus tracks!
I am a sucker for the debut album by Blood, Sweat & Tears! I’ve bought the original Columbia US LP, then a British LP of it, then several CD variants – a gold disc etc. This one says it’s re-mastered in 2012, so that’s newer than the gold disc version I have!
