Thanks David, sounds great. Did they really remaster the original tapes? Or is it a digital transfer of the cd source files? I've always believed the originals got lost.

cheers,

- Fedor

I don't know, I would imagine the latter.

chutsler Dec-12-2006 8:12 AM

Doesn't matter.....I intend to pick up all three!!!

Arjen Dec-12-2006 11:11 AM

Pretty cool.. and the price is good too. I ordered before from this site so I encourage all to order these masterpieces :D

Wolfy, the disclaimer is not on the HMV pages. But, yes, that would be a bit worrisome.

Gustavo Martins Dec-13-2006 6:36 AM

I would buy all of them, but... since I'm from Brazil I guess it won't be released here any time soon!

Tony Takano Dec-13-2006 7:48 AM

It reads,

Japanese Limited Edition Issue of the Album Classic in a Deluxe, Miniaturized LP Sleeve Replica of the Original Vinyl Album Artwork.

It doesn't look like remaster but is with replica LP sleeve.

Ko Dec-13-2006 8:04 AM

Thanks David, for the info. How did you find it?

I wonder why now and in Japan, even though Glenn has not been here for three years and no tour is planned for the near future, either????

David Dec-13-2006 9:38 AM

From one of the many mailing lists I subscribe too Ko. Don't think this is specific to GLENN, but more of a general re-issue targeted at the Japanese market. So there's nothing to read into it!! Although don't discount a visit to Japan in the near future ;)

Ditto!!.....Any Trapeze Re-masters have my vote :thumbsup:

chutsler Dec-13-2006 3:32 PM

Just bought a 'promo' boxset of the three on ebay for $84.99 + $15.32 for shipping......it's expensive but......it's TRAPEZE!!!

Be sure and let us know how it sounds when you get it!

chutsler Dec-18-2006 2:59 AM

Below is a photo of the Trapeze mini-LP CD promo set I'm waiting to arrive. I certainly hope this isn't some kind of 'pirate' release! :thumbsup:

chutsler Dec-26-2006 4:29 PM

The Trapeze Japanese mini-LP CD set arrived Friday and I got around to playing them Xmas Eve. I have German issues of the first three albums but this set is a vast improvement in the sound. The music jumps out of the speakers no doubt due to the 24-bit remastering. Each mini-LP sleeve is exactly like the original album! Looks like I won't be playing the German issues anymore!! I'm 100% satisfied with this product!

Chip Dec-26-2006 6:09 PM

Damn. Now you've got me wanting a set :)

Chip

chutsler Dec-27-2006 3:01 AM

Sorry...I just saw your message this morning. I purchased my set from a seller in Japan who had a very good feedback rating. His user id is ftfym65 (I think his name is yuji). His email addy is yuji65@pb4.so-net.ne.jp I hope that's your guy. He was very prompt with shipment. I think shipping cost me about $15.00. One of the only drawbacks when it comes to ordering from Japan. Good luck and let me know what you think of it when it arrives! cheers, Chuck

odair Dec-28-2006 5:36 PM

Sorry David, but do you think we'll have a Trapeze Album with lyrics in the sleeves someday? I'm waiting for those lyrics for long long long time. Since 1972 when I bought my first Trapeze Album.

Perhaps wolfysmith can borrow the lyrics from Tom or Mel sometime? Tom was going to pass them along for transcription a while back, but never got around to it unfortunately.

Or perhaps chutsler can answer as to whether this Japanese box-set contains the full set of lyrics?

chutsler Dec-29-2006 3:12 AM

David, the lyrics are indeed printed on each album's insert.....and they're mostly correct this time! I have a vinyl Japanese copy of Medusa and the lyrics are almost a laugh riot to read! It's obvious the person listening to the music and translating the lyrics was hearing something other than what most other people were hearing!

:thumbsup:
Chuck

odair Jan-04-2007 12:00 PM

Hi Chutsler
You know the real lyrics because you speak English naturally. So, why don't you complete the lyrics of the Album You are the music.. we're just the band, in the lyrics section. Only 3 lyrics are lacking. Please, place the lyrics here.

captmidnite1962 Jan-04-2007 6:24 PM

Octupus eyes with a periscope hole....
 
I believe the reason that the lyrics get somewhat folded,spindled and mutilated in the translation process is because the Japanese listener is translating phonetically.....in the same fashion that Western singers learn the lyrics in order to sing them in Japanese. Or something to that effect!

English is probably the toughest language to master because the rules of pronunciation are maddening in their constant deviation from what was previously laid down. "Through" sounds different from "cough" which is different from "slough".....and the hits just keep on coming!!

OK..enough of the language lesson for tonight....Have a great week!! :thumbsup:

chutsler Jan-09-2007 3:10 AM

Bill, I understand that and I hope our Japanese friends here were not offended by my post. It doesn't matter who does the translating...if it's incorrect it's incorrect :confused:

odair Jan-09-2007 6:19 PM

OK, Very good lesson.
But, why don't you give us a better demonstration about English knowledge, transcribing the lyrics to the lyrics section of this site?
Have you visited that section? There is a Trapeze Album there with five lyrics and lacking three lyrics.
I sent the five lyrics to David and he made a correction in my "almost a laugh riot to read!" as Chutsler said. But together, David and I made some work. It would be better if somebody else make some work too. We could complete that album finally instead of being speaking about things that are not important.
I stay timid to ask David to do the work all the time, so I'm asking you and Chutsler.
What do you say?

Tony Takano Jan-10-2007 5:15 AM

That may be common among Japanese, Chinese and Korean.

Even I can only laugh....:lol:

Let's get friendly to each other PREAZE :thumbsup:

"Wishing that your heart be smile"
 
Very funny, Tony! Thanks for posting this.

But at least they're giving it a good shot, trying to get it right.
Writing Japanese, Chinese, or Korean "characters/letters".....we would have NO CLUE! :huh:

I'm in the middle of watching 2 Korean "soap operas" on my TV.
("The Famous Chill Sisters" and "Pure in Heart.")
Luckily, it has English sub-titles.
But sometimes even the professional translators get it wrong,
and you have to re-read the sentence to make sense out of it.

But I occasionally watch 2 Japanese stories, unfortunately
without English sub-titles, and try to figure the story out.
Maybe you know them, or watch them?

* One has an orchestra that plays classical music,
but the musicians are young people in their teens and 20s.
* The second one has a lot of people living in an enormous "palace"
and it's pretty much a fashion show, when the lady of the house
walks around the garden hallways, and EVERYBODY is wearing
unbelievably beautiful kimonos.

Yep, we all live on a very small planet.........

Tony Takano Jan-13-2007 3:49 PM

I have been a big fan of the site Grace.

I am thinking about buying one of those T-shirts and am also trying to find something interesting to post there :thumbsup:

As for Korean dramas are concerned, some suddenly became very popular among Japanese ladies. I think probably it is because the stories are more or less true love stories which they always do love. Korean acotors also became very popular and Korean-Mania ladies rushed to every airport to welcome the actors whenever they landed.

As for the Japanese dramas are concerned, I am sorry but I have no knowledge of them you descrived. However as you may know, dramas from Japan are very poplular in Asian countries. I think it is coming from the truth that satelite TV channels are now all spread among the countries. Japan is shifting export products from electric products, cars to dramas and animations.

It is said that dramas, animations are all loved even by North Korean dictotros (It's a shame though)

Yeah, the world is very small.

captmidnite1962 Jan-14-2007 6:39 AM

Crazy...but it works!
 
I have discovered over the many years of listening to music through headphones that if you want to decipher the lyrics, lower the volume....I am sure there is a technical explanation for this....but when you listen at a greatly reduced volume, the vocals seem to stand out more as if they were suddenly boosted in the mix.

I know it sounds nuts...but I have found that it works!

Gee, Tony, isn't this EXACTLY like the Glenn Hughes Crazy People's:

AIRPORT PATROL :hi5:

They both seem very interesting......I hope that they show up for you, on Japanese TV.
(The young people's orchestra, and the drama that has the beautiful kimonos.)

And thanks again for www.engrish.com
Sometimes you can tell how much work went into trying to get the translation correct,
and sometimes, no matter how many times you read it......it still doesn't make sense.

......and where are the recent photographs of those 2 young GH fans,
who live with you at your house? :camera: :) :)

Take care,
Grace
