 Japanese vinyl releases are premium quality pressings much sought after by
audiophiles and collectors alike. In the 1960s Toshiba pioneered top quality
red vinyl pressings using their trademark ‘Ever-Clean’ process this utilised
a special ingredient intended to prevent the build-up of static electricity on
the vinyl. Japanese pressings are synonymous with quality - the vinyl shines like
no other vinyl everything about their releases feels special. When US audiophile
label Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab first released their series of high quality
pressings the records were manufactured in Japan. The sonic quality of Japanese
pressings is considered to be among the best in the world and in addition they
are beautifully presented their covers usually printed on better quality heavy
stock paper and often including a bonus lyric insert with dual language Japanese
& English text.

As with most other countries Japan produced promotional LPs in advance of the
commercial release for marketing purposes. There are numerous different forms of
promotional LP; these vary from plain white labels simply bearing a catalogue
number to customised white labels similar in design to the finished label copy
but without any of the colour or artwork - basically just a white label with black
print. The most common forms of promotional LP are those that appear to be
finished stock albums but on closer inspection are designated promotional on the
label. Whilst some actually state ‘Promo or Sample’ in English most of these
simply display the Japanese Kanji character set equivalent - shown below

Nearly all Japanese LPs were issued with an ‘obi’ - literally translated this
means ‘sash’ and is derived from the obi (sash) worn around the traditional
kimono dress. This delicate paper strip usually wrapped around the left side of
the album cover often contains marketing information and album content details
all printed in Japanese kanji and ~kana script. Obi designs can be as varied as
the LPs they adorn and some seriesÂ’ of obi designs can be as collectable as the
artistsÂ’ albums they decorate. However not all promotional LPs were issued with
the obi - the LP was often distributed before the obi was produced - it is rarer
to find a promo with an obi than it is without one especially on first pressings.
They are more common on promo copies of reissue albums as the timing is not quite
so important as for a brand new release so there was more time to put the whole
package together.

The rarest Japanese promotional LPs are those designed with exclusive custom picture
sleeves often compilations of previously released tracks issued to the media as a
reminder of back catalogue success prior to the launch of new material or an impending
Japanese tour. These retrospective LPs can be the crowning glory of any collection and
they rarely come up for sale. They are often some of the most expensive LPs to obtain
with prices ranging from £50 to £1500 for the extreme rarities...!
